Errrr , i ruptured patella tendon, dislocated kneecap,tore quad muscle - all on left leg , and at the same time ruptured quad tendon and quad muscle ruptures on right leg . Had major complications with left leg including failed ops and DVT . After 3 ops on the left and 1 on the right they can do no more and i`ll be on crutches permanately. This was doing a quite light farmers ( 95kg) at the BRITAINS MOST POWERFUL MAN 2008.

mike is in that elusively elite club i'm afraid Grin

bodypower 2009, weightlifting expo.

sure, the technique is the key here, but thats given i think. The comp organisers can still think their events through with the idea in mind to minimise injuries, and not just leave it to the athletes.

2 out of 10 competetors tore their biceps at the UKSC englands comp, thats 20% success rate. Hope the comp organisers at least think about if that could have been prevented simply by choosing the event equipment more wisely (the crowd would have still loved it all the same and the strongest would have won)

Its both fault on the competitor and organiser side, but from the organiser's side of things they could at least have a tyre with of a bit of tread I suppose.
And of course, bad f**king luck.

Martin_Jones said:To be perfectly honest I do think that the tyres are becoming to heavy. It's a speed and technique event for me. At a national comps you should expect all guys to be able to complete the course.

Also I agree that grip has a factor. But so does technique, as in the positioning of the arms. I've seen some poor technique in my time but then I've not witnessed many tears. Are the tyres to heavy.

Also the fact that athletes are no taking more "meds" does play a part. The tendons become dry and britel, hence the tears are always full tears. That is just my opinion mind, with a bit of fact.


the tyre was 600 kg and i heared 2 flips won. id love to see your speed n technique there?

correct me if i am wrong but, i think what martin ment was the event should be a managable weight. so that it is all about speed and technique.

stainless said:Not to imply that it is for a second the only reason but i think that anyone who has less than 100% R.O.M at the elbow joint is an accident waiting to happen.I see an awful lot of guys whose arms at rest are 10 degrees plus off of full extension,further to this when they train arms they don't fully extend,this means that you have a big strong bicep used to handling loads for 95% of it's range.The tyre flip in particular at the beginning of the pull puts the bicep load straight onto it's weakest range.
If arms can be held straight at the start then the drive to start the lift comes from the legs then the hips.But with tight biceps the first thing that happens is the biceps are screaming as they get forced into full extension before the legs and hips can even initiate movement.
There was a thread a while back about whether or not to do direct bicep work.I think that if you have full 100% ROM then you don't need to but if you don't then you must work to make your biceps full and long to avoid injuries.


spot on statement Steven

a weight that big you have to attack, you can't just rely on strength to lift it. always going to use a bit of biceps, can't be helped.

as wayne said if anybody was going to lift a weight without using his biceps its a weightlifter.
