Events finally announced(sort of)

Heats: truck pull, yoke, overhead press, deadlift, last man standing stones

Final: loading race, deadlift, overhead press, squat, stones


All seems a bit muh. 5 events, 3 static.

Can see the final being max axle deadlift and boring 320kg squat with a suit and athletes getting close to 20 reps.

If it's only 5 events in the heats then last man standing stones is totally wrong. Essentially you have 4 events to get top 2. Also it's really 4 out of 5 static events in the final. It really does feel like WSM on the cheap.

Looks pretty dull. Rogue/Arnoldís really make WSM look like an amateur production now IMO

All will be forgiven if it is max squat

If max dead lift, they will lift more on an axle than they do a few weeks later on the whippy bar at dead lift champs.

Thor
Licis
Janashia

Will all lift big. Thor will take Ed's axle dead lift record.

Solid prediction for top three, in that order tbh. Not sure if Shaw has enough time to get back into podium-ready shape.

Thor will walk it!

He will likely win at least 3 of the final events, or at the ver least Squat and Deadlift.

Special K competes this weekend so get to see what shape he is in and there is a max deadlift.

But the same finishing order for podium as the Arnold's wouldn't surprise me. Licis looks really good in training at the moment and looked off prior to the Arnold's.

Axle and suit are both positives for his lifting style in the deadlift for Licis.

So the final events are now

Loading
Deadlift hold
Overhead medley
Squat reps
Stones

This changes everything. Special K is now in the run...Shaw will obviously do well at deadlift hold and is also in the run.

Overhead medley can go anyway. But generally better for guys good at dumbbell like Shaw and special K.

Will be a close final.

Personally prefer the more static events - but that's just me preferring to watch a grind over huffing and puffing.

What would be peoples perfect combination of event types?

Personally
- some form of pull
- Deadlift/squat
-press
-grip
-throwing
-stones

Seems to be almost a classic final event list. No max lifts!

I want to see Shaw win another title but feel his time may have past.

With deadlift hold they've definitely picked it to try and stop Thor walking the final. But his grip seems better this year. He did the powerlifting comp so he trained strapless deadlift and then trained for Hercules Hold at Europe's and done well there. So whilst I don't think he will win that event i don't think he will drop big points.

Regarding Shaw's chances they're not that bad. None of these events are hamstring dominant so that injury won't be a problem.

Deadlift hold should be a great event for him
Overhead medley is ideal if a heavy dumbbell
Stones also good if heavy
Squats is good going off last time, he just needs to not pause them
Loading should be good also

They're all good events for Licis also and Special K.

How does deadlift hold work? Donít remember seeing that event before.
