» Axle Grip (Go to post)15-02-2019 @ 14:12 
Not sure I understand. How heavy was it, what kind of grip did you use, and why were you surprised that you couldn't lift it?

You can switch grip up to the same weight as on a regular bar, give or take, but it's not recommended because of increased tension on the biceps. Most people use straps.

If you're going with a double overhand grip then obviously you're not going to lift very heavy. Some people find a thumbless grip works a bit better, but in any case you won't get much past 50-60% of your regular 1RM.

Also, anyone know the masters results? I know Fe did OK in a couple of events, but I'm assuming he lost a lot on that OH medley.


9th /10 on the OH medley, but a strong showing on yoke+sandbag and then stones put him in 3rd overall by half a nipple.

If you can salvage an old barbell sleeve, put the plates on that for stone training. It'll hold together better than just tape and/or bands.

As said above, a sandbag could be a worthwhile investment.

Other than that, just compete often.

Looks like Felix wasn't completely shafted. Only [EDIT] 0.5pts ahead of Caron after the Db, not 5 or 6.

log must be at least 150


140 apparently. Too hot for 160.

OB vs Stoltman



Stoltman was leading after 3, struggled more afterwards.

It was done using log result as a tie breaker. Ridiculous I know. No countback.


So one random event out of 5 is a tiebreaker for the 6th event which is also a tiebreaker but not for any actual ties. It's like a first-time promoter inventing rules to look cool, and failing miserably.

I understand its not cheating to have better genetics, but is it fair? Not even close.
Two guys want to play in the NBA, If one guy is 5 foot and 50kg, and another guy is 7ft and 125kg, purely by genetics, is that fair? Does the 5 foot 50kg guy have the same chance? Does he f**k and I don't care what PEDs he does or doesn't take, he's still at a huge disadvantage.
That's the same for all sports, those with the best genetics will always have the edge, even when it's not as visually obvious as the above example.


Who else should have the edge? Isn't the point of any competitive sport to determine who is the best amongst willing participants? There are sometimes a few basic and reasonable categories such as age, gender, and disability, but I've never heard anyone complain that "bad genetics" were unfair.

PaulSavage said:You will never have a fair contest simply on the fact that we are all created different. Even before they start lifting the genetic freaks out there could out lift most who train for years as well as take PEDs. No amount of PEDs will catch the vast majority up to the natty potential of those freaks, never mind if they end up using.

If you want to make things fair then the only way would be extremely detailed genetic testing then subtract and minus results accordingly. Never going to happen.


That's absolutely not what a fair competition is about.
