Doesn't even need to do 501kg..Thor can do 480kg for comp win and Heinla can do 482kg for record.

....also, I wouldn't mind Shaw doing the full comp and throw Heinla 10k and let him do the record breaker deadlift.

PaulSavage said:Shaw was clearly sick, breathing out of his arse every event and still nearly won against Martin's so obviously still very capable. Thor would have won every event but maybe farmers getting close second though. In reality Martin's is not close to him just seems that with how they did world's. Hopefully it doesn't happen next year but being in the same place it's not looking good.


Shaw hadn't been injured and Licis had.

Licis will do wonders in this prep now. 7 weeks of pure gains.

Not sure about the events though

Wheel of pain needs to be heavier

Deadlift will be good...Thor, Caron, Pritchett and Licis will all lift big. At this point I would prefer 400kg for reps.

Dumbbell i am not sure...seems extremely heavy.

Bag throw Thor will win easily

Stone carry/loading hopefully will be good...but hard to say until it happens

Only bad event for Licis is bag throw, but it is a bad event for everyone but Thor.

Thor will win Arnold's.. good events and he seems stronger than ever. If he manages that 900lb frame without dropping he will have zero weaknesses and I think his grip has improved enough that he won't drop it.

Also hope he just pulls 480kg in the deadlift rather than chase 501kg

I am glad Licis made it, I think his prep for this Arnold's will be his best yet...he seems to be over all his injuries.

Shaw actually did decent...his deadlift seemed good, overhead was OK, he just needs to gain 5kg of weight because his foot speed has gone so needs as much points from static events. He can do Australian Arnold's a few weeks later and focus on that. He needs to not injure that hamstring for 2 years.

I don't think any athlete not doing the Arnold comps will win WSM. The Brits generally don't do Arnold comps.

I wish a few of the Brits would do them rather than only Giants Live.

The events are ideal for Shaw and i still think he won't do that well.

Licis has had a few injuries, but think he is about 90% with them now. But would be in amazing form come the main Arnold's.

Licis will qualify.

Events were favourable for Licis but it is just how the events fall. I will show you the obvious pattern for the blind and stupid. 3yr cycle.

2012 max OH, deadlift for reps
2013 max deadlift, OH for reps
2014 squat for reps, OH medley or OH for reps
2015 max OH, deadlift for reps
2016 max deadlift, OH for reps
2017 squat for reps, OH for reps...but they threw in max deadlift because of Hall which threw it off.
2018 max OH, deadlift for reps

2019 ...now because of the 2017 having both squats and max deadlift it left this one open...they went for squats and OH for reps...which considering every comp has max deadlift is a good decision. Also would mean max deadlift 3 out of the last 4 years if they went with deadlift.

All the athletes kinda know wsm 2020 will be deadlift for max and OH for reps and what they will aim their training at.

It wasn't in Licis backyard...it is about 3000 miles away. USA is big.

Loading events have been done on sand for a fair few years now...a long time before Licis was considered champion material.

He also came 2nd at the Arnold's with completely different events.

Also he totally dominated wsm 2019...he barely dropped points.

I am pretty sure he is just going to break his record again rather than someone else breaking it. I can see his deadlift and squat both going up by 20kg each.

Kielz got injured. But Thor is way down in weight, probably trying to get his wife pregnant. Licis is also injured, but looks good in training, just depends on his pressing.

Special K won...neither Licis or Thor are doing WUS.

So will be Novikov vs Kieslz there again.

I am pretty sure Shaw is done for, he has no speed and his left hamstring is always injured.

Licis has a trapped nerve so isn't competing.

So if they have another Arnold's in California in Feb it looks like Shaw or Licis won't qualify, potentially neither.

JimLifts said:Nah he was 196 for the 500. He's around 170 at the moment so has some room. I thought he was keeping weight down for his health and acting roles though?...


196kg when he won WSM the year after.
