Great to see other 105 comps in Scotland, and this one looks fun with sensible weights too

Good on you for running this, I wanted to a few years back but it was too big an undertaking for me and the interest wasn't there at the time.

I would say, maybe base your log and dead weights more on who is doing the comp or else you might end up with a lot of zero reps. A 120 log doesn't sound too heavy, but at untested open comps in Scotland a lot of people would be failing that

The British record for 83 kgs un equipped open age is 262.5.
So until John Paul does it in my presence, to my satisfaction, I don't believe it for a second. I don't doubt he has the legs but he won't have the back. Plus there is more to powerlifting than squatting.
As my old coach used to say "only believe half what you see and nothing that you hear"

Hopefully someone more technically adept than myself will find the vid and put it up.

It does seem stupidly heavy, that's what got me thinking

And I expect all he can do is squat (oh and cycle), makes it no less impressive imo.

I just saw a vid on Facebook of a British cyclist, 84kgs, squatting 320kgs for an easy double. Now the depth may not have been IPF, but it was pretty good, and obviously he can pass a drug test or two. Basically what I'm thinking is, especially at lighter bodyweights, would proper athletes destroy powerlifting wrs if they weren't busy making money and being popular.

The dude was called John Paul, but I'm on my phone and don't know how to link the vid

At 134kgs I looked liked a morbidly obese guy who might lift
Now at 107 I look like a quite fat guy who probably doesn't

No - this entire conversation has been about calories burnt. I even asked you, explicitly, whether we were talking time or distance and you said it doesn't matter - 'we're talking averages' - you said. Changed your tune now though haven't you?

No, same distance at same bodyweight is fair. None of the other stuff matters. This arguement is dumb.

Because obviously you have a finite amount of distance to train and not time?

As there is no wsm after, and I'm assuming Europe's strongest man will be heavy and pretty static on the other events BigZ could turn up VERY big

looks very high from this angle.

Any vids of Thor and Shaws squats to compare?

This is why I hate squat in strongman

I think your right mate, All the Arnold guys looked heavier than usual, except Thor.

Do we know if this is going to be the new standard time of year for wsm(cause obviously the Arnold ain't moving)?

If it is we may see guys specialising I suppose. I for one would love to see an Ed Hall exclusively concerned with being the best he can be at the Arnold.

Also I kind of hope it is the new time frame, the shorter season should help the longevity and health of the athletes imo

Im in utter shock that shaw finished third when hes in the shape of his life.
The only way the events could have been better for him was if there was max dead instead of squat.

Yes this surprised me too, bit disappointing really

I think in the wsm format he's just not quite as mobile/fast as thor, though he is stronger.

may be that this is something to do with the proximity of the arnold and wsm, maybe more prep time and shaw would have been a bit lighter?

That being said, Z winning the Arnold and WSM, that close together, with the ethos of the comps so far apart, is really rather special
