Not one event tests their actual max strength.
Squats i am not sure of the weight...but if 320kg and 15+ reps, not so great to see who is the strongest.
Rest are grip and moving, not particularly heavy

Agree. Mariusz Pudzianowski from 2004 wins this final any day.

Good job man. At this point i think for Thor and Shaw the competition is over. Probably Liscis will get it, hes a good sqautter.

Are we back in 2004, overhead medley with max weight 167 kg log.

And all this format, last man standing stone, 5 events final... not good.

No, broo. Those are probably some blood circulation issues.

Shaw should end his career as soon as posible. He has no chance of winning and there looks to be some serious health issue IMO. Just look at those lower legs.

Another loglift competition to show how far ahead Z was.

I think Killa will break the record before Biby.
Killa is incredible.

Hicks 220 side angle looks easy and probably a shot at 230.

even if they did better it, prime Z only did what was needed. he didn't struggle on his 4th rep FFS

Go for 220, Hicks.

Nimble said:On the video he weighs it. It would be an odd thing to lie about considering he has to lift real weights in front of a crowd in a few weeks. Only thing i thought is his log looks to have a very wide diameter, and itís steel of course. Thinner diameter wooded log will be harder. But he did 220 on that last year, of course. Whatever happens, both Hixxy and Biby are now in territory that was exclusively Zís before.

No they are not, at least 10 kilos behind prime Z. Another 2-3 years and record might fall but not now.

Nimble said:Biby... 223kg x two singles on log. Crazy. World record looks in danger if he stays healthy

First i dont believe its 223 and second world record wont be broken.

I agree.

Bone size determines height, you cannot be tall without large bones.

I dont think thats true.

dannyboy73 said:Your genes are you potential..If you end up 5.7 and 200lb your potential to be 400lbs and 6.10 was never there.

Hard work is important but genes are the potential.

I got 2lb of beefburgers for dinner...never gonna make 4lb of steak out of that. Grin

These days being short puts you out of the equation of winning WSM or Arnolds, just because you cant put as much mass as the taller guys. Its a mass game, the heavier guys win the last 10 years. And its not just mass its a lot of muscle, and how u make 300+ pounds of lean muscle... well we know the answer.
Long live insulina.

Is your suggestion here that people make it to the NBA without being genetically gifted?

In terms of strength... yes they are not.

Bone size is one of the limiting factors on potential maximum muscle mass. Muscle mass directly correlates with strength (but is obviously not the only predictor of it). So yes, there is a relation, and probably a significant one, although Iím not sure itís been directly studied.

First i think the bone density relates more to strength than bone size and second
its the frame that defines how much potential u have to carry size.
In comparison Denis Cyplenkov has bigger bones than Thor but he has smaller frame. Shaws bones are just a pound heavier than Zs considering the stats above but he is easily 20-30 kg heavier without even looking as puffy as Z.

This is how i see it in general...
You might consider these guys as some freaks of nature but this is completely not the case. What genetic tools Thor and Shaw have more than an average NBA player. None.
The real freak factor of modern proffesional strength sport is the ability to take drugs, to respond good and to handle side effects. The ability to be non-stop on massive amounts and do no bridging between cycles is what sets you above the rest. Believe it or not this is how i see it. There are plenty of super talents in strongman who just didnt handle the negative effects and gave up early.
