» Openly gay strongmen/strength athletes? (Go to post)06-04-2014 @ 02:05 
I actually read before that a WSM winner was gay, the person never said which one and I never found out. He was a kind of in the know poster as well.

Shaw is in great shape. At Arnold's he 2 repped the 200kg log, 1128lbs deadlift and 10 reps on squats at statically he is a monster. He won truck pull which was heavy, the loading was running around with a tyre on their arm, not a great test of strength. If they put the stones to a decent weight he would win those as well.

All in all Z has proved himself to being the best strongman this year, come next year if Arnold's brings back stones and WSM brings back farmers and yoke(both likely) I think Shaw will dominate.

Shaw will win, his buddy Burke will do him a favour and get 3rd on the stones.

tbf on Thor he has recently done a 430kg deadlift, he did 4 reps on a 300lbs dumbbbell. Now his log wasn't great at the Arnold's, but I think it just went badly and didn't represent where he was at. I think he is close to a 200kg log. I also think he can easily lose 5-7 points to Z on squats so it is still definitely a 3 horse race still.

His static strength is pretty great for someone as young as he is and as tall he is.

Only event I am looking forward to is the squat. Then the only thing I am bothered about is the overall result.

OH should be

110kg DB, 400lbs axle, WR block press(say 5kg more than poundstone and Z did in the heats a few years back), 200kg log. Can do them in any order.

Why is Shaw pushing it in terms of bodyweight and training? He's a giant and very sensible and been an athlete all his life, there is no reason he can't go on as long as Z. Z was still young when he made a name for himself, I was undetr the impression he was looking to retire?

He has always said as long as he is getting stronger he won't retire. He proved at the Arnold's he is still getting stronger and got a great payday for it.

Loading race - Thor , Shaw , Terry , Burke
Overhead - Z , Burke , Shaw , Edd
Kegg toss - Shaw , Thor , Z , Burke
Truck pull - Thor , Shaw , Terry , Z
Squt - Z , Edd , Loz , Shaw
Stones - Thor , Shaw , Z , Terry

Really close between Z, Shaw and Thor imo.

What is in the OH medley?

I would like something like block press, axle, dumbbell and then log.

RyanH said:"Brian Shaw was the easy winner of Fingals Fingers in group 5 at the"

Not surprising, after his deadlift WR last year I think his fingle fingers performance in the heat was the most impressive thing he did at last year's WSM.

Thor is definitely a title contender. Last year it seemed like the person who lost the most weight due to illness was Jenkins and then Thor and he still came 3rd. Plus that year he did the getting abs thing so really needed the weight. This year he was heavy for the Arnold's, has no bad illness and the events suit him(as the general WSM format does).

I don't even think his OHP is that much of a weakness, I think log just went kind of badly at the Arnold's for whatever reason, but his dumbbell was amazing.

Thor can cruise it as well, should win all events in his heat fairly easily apart from Viking press, also maybe deadlift as well...but he can come 2nd in those two fairly comfortably without pushing.

Shaw is looking monstrous and Terry's arms are very impressive. Oberst is pretty massive as well, I can see him in about a year or so suddenly having massive delts and look like a mega beast.

Main thing is, they all look healthy and happy.

Took me a while to stop staring at Burk's delt to notice his johnny cash coolness middle finger.
