Rest in peace Paul.
He was certainly a character and it seems pretty clear that he had a hugely positive impact on Rebecca. Sending my condolences to Rebecca and Paulís family.

One of the vids on YouTube suggests he had the protection of the criminal underworld, as he was useful to them when they needed to intimidate someone

I remember seeing threads about this guy years ago on this forum and others and heard a little from those sources about what he was notorious, but having grown up down south (a safe distance from his stomping grounds), I never really knew much more. I was reminded of him recently as there are loads of vids featuring him on TikTok (I know itís s**t, but itís sort of work-related).

Ive watched some of the videos about him on YouTube and I can understand why people are so terrified and disturbed by him.

I also thought Iíd share this rap that someoneís made about him 😂.

Whats this got to do with coronavirus?

Iím assuming Samuelson has had the vaccine and is experiencing some symptoms and is asking whether people think itís safe to do anything potentially dangerous whilst still experiencing the after effects of the vaccine.

I had the Astra Zeneca one for my first dose a few weeks ago and had mild flu like symptoms and an aching arm for about a week. Maybe safer to give the overhead stuff a miss until later in the week?

I built a nice partition wall in the garden for stuff, but ended up filling that with breezeblocks. Side of the house is much clearer. Got 5 chickens and a rooster. More gardening (only edible stuff, of course)

Yaman, whatís your PB fish (either by weight or just best catch) since youíve been out there? Iím more than a little jealous of your access to fishing opportunities. Do you sell any btw?

Does anyone know which channel/ dates WSM 2020 will be on this Christmas?

Also, I've somehow managed to avoid finding out who won, so please avoid mentioning in this thread if possible.
» Strength decline with age? (Go to post)16-12-2020 @ 21:44 
Yaman I must point out that my use of Ďdeadísí to refer to deadlifts was a mistake on my phoneís part.

I realise that grammar is a very serious matter. I did of course mean Ďdeadsí.
» Strength decline with age? (Go to post)16-12-2020 @ 21:38 
Yaman, Iíd be surprised if youíre experiencing age-related decline yet, although I suppose itís possible. Having said that, I canít remember what back/ knee(?) injuries youíve had in the past, but I guess that could influence deadís as well as squat.

I gave myself a minor back scuppering (1 slightly bulged disc - ďconsistent with ageĒ I was told) which has made squatting difficult, although box squatting is OK. Am sure I could still get stronger than I was before on deads, but wouldnít feel comfortable due to back as poundages past a certain level.

How about your body weight? Are you as heavy as you were when you did those numbers before?

Iím currently getting more satisfaction from almost having visible abs at 40, than I did from being slightly stronger than a regular gym goer in my early 30s.

Iíve recently been rewatching all the old WSMs including heats - starting at 94 anyway. A couple of things have struck me:

-Some of the early events/ equipment were soooo dangerous (eg. Horrible-looking anchor for distance carry/ medley)

-When Z popped up he was already so good, mixing it with the best in multiple events

-Pudz (and Dyymek even more so) so athletic. Thereís one year where theyíre all standing wait deep in a pool at the start of their intro scene and have to climb out. Dymek did a two footed jump out of nearly waist deep water

-Pudz was so light when he first appeared (about 123 I think) and was so much bigger (just over 140) by 2007. He looked huge at that weight with his frame.

-As mentioned above Magnus Samuelson also transformed himself. Lean 120ish to a huge 150Kg guy.

-Mark Westerby.... maybe one of the most naturally gifted in terms of size and strength genetics. Apparently hadnít lifted a weight until age 38!! Also won squat in one of the qualifiers.
