What a lame ass idea this stone off thing is where in some groups so long as an athlete puts in a reasonable performance he'd be through but now he could be eliminated by someone who wouldn't have had a chance before and other groups are exceptionally tight so normal stones would have been great as 3 or 4 guys could potentially go through depending on their performance! Really wish Trans World Sport or whoever owns it these days would stop messing with the last event, makes a mockery of the 4 previous events!

What's going to happen if 3rd place is tied between 2 guys in one of the tight heats

Great work by Felix for the win on arm over arm. How is his dumbbell these days? Surely looking at 2nd or 3rd now behind Licis taking him to this stupid stone off against Caron?

Thor last place on arm over arm!? Can't see a video yet, is this tactical with log as next event or has he picked up an injury?

Have to say Hicks looks awesome and that yoke my god absolutely destroyed it, shame Loz isn't competing as would have loved to see a race between the two!
» Anyone going to the north west strength expo this weekend (Go to post)03-09-2017 @ 00:56 
This was a great day out, where was everyone!?
We've finally got an expo dedicated to strength sports rather than male beauty pageants but if we as a community don't go down and support it's going to be a struggle to convince exhibitors it's worth their time coming. We have a real chance here to forge our own path and stop being just a side show at Body Power!
Today we saw Hixxy set a new British log record and numerous powerlifting records were set with more to follow some come down and show your support for the athletes and the organisers so this event can get bigger and bigger each year focusing on what we in the strength world want and need to grow the sport!!

Glen Ross is also a good call due to his apparent durability as documented in the source of eternal truths - Kate Kray's Hard bas***ds - and sheer strength. Apparently he was working the door on a club in Northern Ireland and threw out a gang one night and they then returned later in a group of 10 with baseball bats and pounded him over the head but he managed to stay on his feet grab a bat off one of them and then they all ran.

Have to ask, did he shout "Who's The Daddy!?"

Are we allowing hat throwing, if so Glenn Ross might be one to look out for lol

Have to go with Mikhail Shivlyakov he is after all a former Russian marine, those guys are trained to kill at the end of the day and have their own extremely effective martial art Systema, that isn't about scoring points etcetera it's to make sure you are the one that walks out of there alive not your opponent

Did hear of a bodybuilder once who was on, fitting himself with a catheter, getting his girlfriend to pee in a bottle as he knew she was clean and then filling his bladder with her piss so he could pass the test...sad and disturbing on so many levels!! The things people do to win a beauty pageant lol, would have been absolutely hilarious if she was pregnant Grin

Hoping you can get some good advice for your father. Have you discussed this with the Dr's treating your father?

Thanks Iain, very kind of you to say. Was a few years back now though and thankfully they saw sense the following day before any more damage was done.

As a lifetime drug free athlete looking at Aaron's lifts I don't see why they can not be achieved, yes his bench is very high but looking at his squat and deadlift they are roughly the same (which having never met him I can't say for certain) but I would guess his arms are of average length or even shorter making him far more suited to pressing.
I'm generalising here but people who have long arms in comparison to their torso tend to be extremely good pullers so they have a much bigger deadlift than squat whereas someone with t-rex style arms is pretty much gods gift to the bench so proportionality their bench is huge.
Aaron is clearly a very knowledgeable guy and shares his programs for free with the rest of us, all you have to do is look at them. They are so well thought out and methodical not leaving a thing to chance...the guy has been doing it for years building and building those numbers refining his technique and training methods as he goes to funnily enough produce some great numbers. This didn't happen over night or within a few short months so I'm sorry but it's just plain jealousy and laziness that people can't believe that someone could be that dedicated to put the work in year after year to achieve those numbers without drugs!
Why not try following one of Aaron's programs, eating right, getting enough sleep, manning up and actually putting the work in so you do see some actual progress on your lifts rather than b**ching like little girls!!

Great lift, made I look easy.

That's the rules that were chosen for the sport
