He's become obsessed with trying to be totally pain free etc. I think in his mind he thinks he used to compete / train completely pain free but I don't think that's the case. It seems to have taken over his life


I don't think you're completely off the mark. I also think he's enjoying messing around on YouTube quite a lot. I doubt he'll compete again tbh

Regarding stem cell treatment, has Magnus Ver had any benefit from this being done to his knees?

Possibly Eastern European TV companies don't cough up to buy the programme?

I think he realised you canít just get by with static strength.

Didnít he tear a bicep on stones in one of his first sessions?

hahahaha! Whilst this is true, it is the kind of sentence The Daily Mail will pick up and make an article of.

A few athletes tipping fingals fingers and log max for finals. You have to fancy the taller lifters like Shaw and Luke with that setup. Short Novi may need a Puds shoulder to get the fingers up.

Or those giant sponge hands, but dipped in cement...

Events are up:
Finals
Day 1
Giants Meadley (Yoke and Frame Carry)
Titans Turntable
Reign Keg Toss (15kg for height)

Day 2
Log Lift
Knaack Deadlift (they make garage tool chests, so maybe like a car deadlift setup with toolboxes on either side)
Stones

Overhead Meadley, Train Pull and Pickaxe Hold sound interesting in the qualifiers.

Someone on Reddit suggested the turntable will be something like this:



If so, that might be a very cool event. Would explain why Brian Shawís been pushing his little car around.

Good events. Looking forward to it.

Should be a close final

It is actually very similar to 2019 and 2020 Arnolds event wise.

Rogue bag toss
Elephant deadlift
Log
Stone
Wheel of pain

I think the Arnold athletes will do well

I think this is Shaw miles ahead (unless he burns out due to length of competition.) In the finals he should win Train Push and Keg Toss. Toolbox deadlift for reps is one he can win. He will place well in every other event in final.

I think Tom S will be pushing for podium, if his size doesn't hinder him in loading moving events.

Luke S should do well on max log and train. A lighter deadlift will suit him. Hopefully he gets squat in heats.

Novi may struggle with fingers and train events that favour taller heavier guys. Struggle as in not top 5 and toothache doesn't help.

Bish could do well, if he makes final.

Prediction
1) Shaw
2) Tom S
3) Novi/Luke S
