Ramsay777 said:Leicht looked like he got injured on that stupid f**king squat set-up - yet another one.

Its not the set-up at all. Its ppl not preparing well for events. So many squat injuries in strongman due to ppl not squatting anything like what they deadlift, or showboating like Loz used to.

Wayne_Cowdrey said:Come on Terry - win the stones.

I think strongman can be a difficult sport to return to after a break.

I was chatting with Terry at a comp recently and he has a healthy balanced attitude towards life.

Agree with this. He's a legend, and no other brit has been as consistent in WSM. He's likely far past a point where he cares enough about lifting heavy stuff to be able to coast through WSM. Hope he makes the final, but perhaps the last WSM as a competitor.

MJG said:Licis won the squat.

Felix 0 reps.

It will be Licis and Belsak in the final then. Massive shock to see Licis so strong.

Shame 4 groups are pretty much decided - save for something ridiculous on stones after just 4 events.

That's atrocious squatting from Felix. Didn't he used to be semi decent?

hixxy1985 said:none of the first 5 events matter much with double points on stones
jerry proved it last year
its mathematically possible to win first 5 events and come last on stones and not go through.

Just shows WSM is really floundering to be professional. Absurd double points rules.

Shock of shocks, a 410lb man at 6ft 2 does s**te at loading. 'Best shape of my life'.

You sound pathetic. Do you really think a man who has been competing for over 20 years and who has won everything going would lie about his lifts. The man has no reason to lie and exaggerate his lifts as he's got nothing to prove. Wildaeur has also seen the lift too and has confirmed it. He wouldn't lie. Z has only just started using social media recently so that's probably why he didn't post it online.

You sound like a Z cannot, but that's just my opinion. You have never been around an elite athlete if you think they don't have egos bigger than their drug intake.

SimonD said:I'll be honest here I'm not a Z fan the way he kept bumping records up by a kilo or even half a kilo at a time rather than having the balls to do what Ed did and go all out set a proper world record to show the world what you can do in your prime, something that would last for a long, long time annoyed me...certain people like to go on about Shaw being beta well isn't that the same, if you have allegedly done 240 for 2 put a proper world record up, but because he preferred to have his ego stroked time and time again it is unlikely we will ever see what he was truly capable of sadly given the injuries that are mounting up and his advancing years, meaning that we will likely have a new word record holder in the not too distant future but there will always be that doubt wether or not it was truly the heaviest log ever lifted unlike Ed's monumental lift...there can be no argument there, it is by far the heaviest weight lifted off the floor on a conventional bar, no one can claim to have even got close to that weight in training!
That being said why are so many on here so quick to dismiss the possibility that the world record holder in pretty much every overhead strongman discipline could have done 240 for 2 in training, not so long ago alot of people were beginning to mock our very own Hix saying he was using fake weights etcetera until he shut them all up at the World Log Lift Championship with a new British record and tying with both Z and Ed for the heaviest log lifted that year. But prior to that there were a lot of comments about only being able to do it in training etcetera and there wasn't a person here that wouldn't have stood up to defend the guy saying given his day truly great things will happen for him, so why is it we doubt Z's claim so much? Lets be honest 240kg is a ridiculous amount but it would have been done in his own gym at his own pace where he is the most comfortable, not with comp nerves, under usually less than ideal conditions...they do have a tendency to hold these things in kinda hot humid environments and where his training hasn't focused on just one event but winning the competition. At home when he's not focussing on winning a competition and free to train whatever he wants who's to say one day he didn't hit 240 x 2 it's not like he could only have one go at it either like in a comp, some times especially at a max you just don't hit it right, and you can pretty much guarantee that it isn't going to go up on a second attempt a few seconds later but given 10 minutes or more to recover if everything does just click right for him why couldn't it go up, it is after all not too far removed from what he's done on a log being only 5-6% above his max competition log

Someone with an ego as big as Z would have posted the video,not just shown it to his mate Wildaeur. The arguments put forward to prove he could do it are weak -a 208kg axle double is not a 240 barbell double. Z has never posted a huge bench, or ridiculous incline presses like Hall. There is no evidence he has ever put 240 over his head, standing, on a barbell, strict. There is evidence Hall could do that with some specific training.

But a few of those guys could have come between the likes of hall and Shaw in certain events and changed the way the top pans out?

Some may have beaten Hall on events for sure, meaning he finishes lower. He isn't a challenge for the win by miles regardless.

billynomates said:the clashing of WSM with the Asian Arnold's has taken a lot of strong athletes away from WSM this year- Lalas, Wildaeur, Nagy, Savatinov, Shivlyakov. This sucks big time Unhappy

Although nobody competing in Asian Arnolds was ever gonna challenge for WSM win, with possible exception of Lalas having an absolute blinder of a competition and his injuries not being a factor at all, which is unlikely. Unless Shaw and Thor suddenly retire, then without Z competing, it's mostly competing for the also ran placings, sadly.

Nimble said:That FB thread makes Z look like a dick tbh. Koklyaev posts a big lift and Z turns up to say it doesn't count because he used "technique". What an idiot. I for one don't believe all his claims about gym lifts

Exactly. Z has been exposed on social media for being a bit of a dick at times-as everyone can be I suppose. Whining about technique in a competition to lift the most weight is like saying Usain Bolt isn't that fast because he has a particularly long stride, or started running so early in his life that he never developed a bad technique.

judjing by failing 230 log multiple times its possible he never acutally pressed that much
look ridiculous number to strict press

Just no way Z can fail 230 log, yet double a heavier barbell. Absurd claims tbh. There's a lot of bulls**tting and gamesmanship in all sports.

FAT_SAM said:I do not believe 240x2. Z struggled with 250 BENCH on video

No way has Z pressed 240 X2 Standing, especially strict. It's just nonsense to claim he has. Seated, possibly. Kendall has pressed 22kgs seated, and Kaz used to bang out the same.

Udo Beyer did not BTN jerk 300kgs. These mythical lifts performed by people who were not strength specialists are urban legends. Thank god for mobile phones and youtube so the claims of todays bulls**t merchants can be challenged.
» question about low frequency training (Go to post)12-08-2016 @ 15:02 
Don't think the body works like that tbh. The nervous system and muscles have no memory, wo how could they be 'thinking' they must retain any strength. However, I have taken huge periods of time off from training-6mths plus-and retained the ability to deadlift 260kgs, bench a solid 140 and squat 200kgs or so. It's more likely that the stronger you are, the longer you can take off from training and still retain a good degree of strength. Your hypothetical 200kgs every 6mths would likely turn into 120kgs after a 6mth break, and progressively decline.

Ed Hall can probably take ten years off trainig and still pull 300kgs plus.
