You're right there, what weight was he when he tore his lat trying a 446 dead? Thought he was only 130ish tops.
Looks much better at 160 now than he did lighter at the 150ish mark.


WSM is so heavy nowadays, that having the cushion deffo helps-within reason of course. Hall posting a pic of him at 29 and a half stone does not seem like a great choice for WSM in my book.

Such a fan of Loz. He has done so well to get back to where he was. Being fatter has helped his performance, and that's not at all a dig.

dont agree with u, he has weak mentality and definitely not preparing on the same level as top athletes
Hall has very short arms and is the deadlift record holder, your argument is invalid


Just read his training book-weak minded nonsense. He is far too nice and happy go lucky to be an elite strongman. Show boating with his great pressing-living off it tbh-has seen him refuse to develop the rest of his game, which has actually made him become s**tter at his pressing. He does have an epic beard, is likable and huge, so he seems to get the media support that equals invites to these comps from the powers that be.

dannyboy73 said:My opinion is that men doing strongman post 40 retain an element of youth... surely from an evolutionary perspective if your body continues to be placed under the strain of progressive resistance then its not time to get old yet...you are still relevant and fit[in]ness well adapt to your environmental challenges.
However, a hug feels good where as a restriction hurts. Knowing how to listen to your body is probably as important to longevity.


Without any doubt, straining under heavy weights physiologically rolls back time via the stimulation of Test and GH. Flip side of this, of course, are those athletes who take so much gear that they age massively in a short space of time. Check out Justin Compton and Dennis Wolf in the BB world, or a man whose name rhymes with Ball, or one whose name is a lot longer than the rhyming of it with door.

Seems insane to have a comp with two events and no real well known guys competing as a Qualifier for WSM. I dont know the guy at all and he may do well at worlds but it must be a bit of a kick in the balls for guys who have been working away for years trying to get to worlds to see an almost total unknown get an invite off the back of one comp that was only a push pull. Surely there are plenty of other brits who have done more to earn a spot at wsm such as yourself, Aaron page, Tom stoltman and Sean o'hagan to name but a few, not to mention all the guys from other countries.


Must be annoying. On other hand ifs good to see newbies on TV. This lads likely a ten yrs of hard training overnight success, so good luck to him.

Andy_f said:Wonder if Robert AboutToBurst will do much this year?

Hasn't been a top level strongman ever really, odd considering his hype and size.


He's a lovely bloke, but utter tosh at that level.

Benvie said:Odd haugen made his wsm debut at 52 I believe and beat guys younger than his own kids. He's still going strong now and shifting good numbers in the gym.


Another great example of living the lifestyle right and being a competitor into relatively old age. He seems to have a finger in many pies in the strength game.

I think Ed proved his worth at moving events at WSM last year. I think his truck pull this year will surprise people, he seems to be training it very hard plus much heavier...I am thinking 2nd in that event.
Only events he might drop points in are frame carry and kettlebell throw...but I remember he did that event against Mike Burke before and he was pretty good.


Hope Hall can do well in the truck pull and kettlebell. Looks good for Terry getting the Dumbell in his heat also.

shame the NHS is reticent to provide TRT to men other than clinical hypogonadism. links between type-2, heart disease, osteoporosis, mental health and low test. would make sense to offer TRT as a rule not exception and of course, what 45-year old male doesn't want to have the horn levels of a teen at a porn conference? Grin


Also, the regional disparities in the treatments offered are crazy. I managed to receive TRT at my age and levels, yet a friend in neighboring NHS Trust was denied, despite being slightly older and in a worse state.

Yes Z gets into strongman shape when needed. He doesn't lug around unnecessary body fat for times of the year.
He did bulk slower and gained gradual strength over a period of years.
He is definitely the best ever.


Without a doubt for me, all round in every lift, and actually good at strongman events. Rare combo.

AdamT said:Felix did start late. Obviously age comes into it, but it's miles on the clock.

If you buy a 5 year old car with 50,000 miles and one with 150,000. Which car is most likely to have more longevity?

I also think of football terms. Rooney is only 30, but looks past his best already. Matured fast and has played top flight footy since he was 16. He has as many miles on his clock, as many players a good few years older.

This is why I think Z is the best. The man has been competing top level powerlifting/strongman for 2 decades and only now is he beginning to show some signs of slight slippage. Big Z is and always will be king.



Z has clearly done things the right way over the years. He has grown into being a huge guy, 160kg+, rather than blow/bloat up in five years. He also shrinks a lot in the off season in both size and bodyfat, so is clealry health focused as much as you can be at that super elite level. Felix is the same.

A lot really depends if you decide to circumvent the natural decline of testosterone and growth hormone.
The transformational effects of even scripted, Harley Street TRT levels cannot be understated on a 40+ man.
If you can get stronger off your own natty production into your 50's (and not including starting aged 45 from being a couch potato) that is something remarkable.


I think we'll see a lot more plus 40 and 50 men and women looking and performing really well now that SARMS and TRT are much more widely known and accepted.

Gordy said:57 year old David Ricks breaking the 93kg open world record squat at the IPF worlds deserves a mention.


Completely missed that amazing feat of strength. Phenomenal.

Point about Felix starting later and not gaining massive amounts of BW-i.e. likely not abusing the vitamins heavily, is great point. His actual training age is a lot lower than his actual age.

dannyboy73 said:I think that Felix is a lovely set of genes.

However, Wife said to me...if he still lives at 70? Only then he gets her respect...the body cant cope at 50 with his level of competition...according to Mrs dannyboy that is.

Easy there tiger...

In my mid-40s I retain a fair amount of strength...not the anger of my youth...and more injuries. But, as I have said before...even after 30 plus years of lifting weights - i still feel that i could yet to peak and become much stronger. Im a waste of genes.

I guess there is a genetic element, most people think I look younger..I look a bit like psycho Dexter for my age. Time will tell I guess. I cant see myself not being just as strong or stronger in 10 years.


No doubt Felix and Levrone were gifted some tremendous genetics. Deffo a good antidote to the idea of having to accept decline though.
