Millsy picked the events! Eek


To be fair, Millsy is a cock!

you think the Scots will go down Lee or they'll be happy to just do BSM against the English lads and leave it at that?

I hope they all go down....although its a looooooong way.

I think the comp looks brutal. Massive respect to the guys competing over 9 events.

On the face of it the comp does seem quite grip heavy, but there are ways in most of the events to take some of the grip element out, still giving those with a weaker grip the chance to have some success.

I hope there are lots of vids

Comp will be awesome either way. Last year was class. I remember completing the arm/arm (1st guy to do it) and when it crossed the line the crowd was deafening! Shocked the f**k out of me!

Interesting posts today, JC imo has raised some great points.

Its a case of now adapting and adjusting to the events and nailing them like any good strongman worth his salt, should be able to do.

JC I could do that Deadlift medley with no f**king straps ... If the 105ers can't do it at this level the tbh you don't belong there ! Have you ever tried cupping an axle on deadlift it's a price of Piss

Ben did 260 axle pull cupped when his bar 1rm was 260 ...

Whats this cupping you speak of? Mixed grip with thumbs under?
Anyway, Terry has given a solution for anyone with grip issues for this event.

AND !!!

All year although the events have not been released everyones been saying they will be similar to last year (arm arm etc) but i dont ever see anyone train them ... I know my man the hix will as I will force him to but people just turn up on the day get owned by Paul who's trained for the comp and then moan and say it was fixed!! If you trained the events regular leading up to the comp and have worked on grip all year as last year it became apparent it was a weakness at UKs! You won't get completely run over by paul ..

Personally i think Hixxy will beat him on tyre if he sorts his conditioning !

Axle has wheels on it which are fixed and is not a ridiculously long thing like last year! The bar sits about 14" I will try find a picture but there is nothing weird about it

The tire is same as last year! Tacky will make a big difference on that tire

I think what he means by cupping is a mixed grip with no thumbs!it does eliminate the grip issue loads!

yep, that seems to be best for deadlifting an axle without straps.

This from a guy who has never seen Paul on tyre...so how you can make the call is beyond me!?

When I was alluding to the straps, it was more about the frame TBH mate

I think thumbs are very well needed on axle deadlift

I find it easier ! BUT I do have hands like bananas !
