Actually track your intake and macros, hiit is your friend for holding muscle and burning fat.

You will always lose some strength unfortunately but it doesn't have to be much

I see. 4 years before I got involved in strength sports haha. Is that because Oli was a favourite with promotors?

who knows.

I feel the selection is often done on who they think can perform better at wsm level. it is a slightly different game to one day shows and events imo have a slightly different feel to them. I think also you can get guys winning events at say bsm but once the weights are increased they're just not quite strong enough to perform to anywhere near the same capacity.

an example, Im not as strong as I was and I did yoke in 10.24 at weekend, if I was at my strongest I probably wouldn't be any quicker with that weight, if it was say 490 (that was weight it was last time I did it at wsm) Id be much faster when I was stronger.

Oli was a 400+ deadlifter, 195kg log presser so he could definitely more than hold his own power wise at the time

this is all just my guess btw

No clear winner in that final. I'm glad to see a frame back in.

My thoughts on weekend

Firstly thought it was a great show, arena and crowd were ace.

Eddie deserved his win and hixxy made him work for it more than the points suggest imo. He was nipping at his heals on every event. They both performed great.

I'm disappointed for bish and felt bad that we were equal and I snatched it as bish is such a good guy, unfortunately they have to separate us and would have got it on old style countback too.

From a personal point of view I didn't know what to expect as I'm still learning my new body. My power still needs work which I knew but my athletism, speed and conditioning is definitely there. I sat at hotel on Friday and said after tomorrow I will know what route I need to take for wsm and I feel I'm on the right track after the event. Wsm is in Philippines which will be hot and humid so my better conditioning should help me and now we're getting back to the old days of strongman testing all aspects by the looks of things I feel I'm in a good place to continue on my path.

Wsm final events are

Truck pull
Car deadlift
Overhead for max
And stones

I feel if my power is up a bit there is 3 events i could potentially win and 2 I could be top 4 only the overhead potentially being a poor event.

I'm excited to get back to wsm and for anyone that thinks I'm finished you hopefully will be eating your words.

Anyway enough of my rambling

Paul Smith did great I thought much as I think it's the worst event in the world his forward hold was great and really got the crowd going. Also I didn't think I'd ever see someone beat eddie on that event

Felix is still a legend

Luke was great considering he didn't get back till the Thursday before

And everyone else busted their arse for the crowd and played their part.

Strongman in Britain is still in a very good place especially with loz coming back too even without Eddie doing wsm.

Draken said:Is Z participating or not? I'm hoping, praying, but I don't think he will.

EDIT: I mean, I know he's in group 5, but he'll probably "fake" an injury and be taken out.

Im not sure id say he would ever fake an injury. I really hope he doesnt pull out though as if he does before comp theyll change my group

Tbh I regret even acknowledging your comments. They're meaningless.
Anyway back to topic, I think Tom stoltman could make podium by his third appearance. He's unlucky to have such a tough group this year or I'd say he'd stand a chance of making the final

Love tom and think he has a bright future but its not bad luck he has a tough group, he is a 4-6th in group seed so he was always gonna get 3 really good guys.

MJG said:I am sure Tom will have a great career if he keeps at it but I don't think Eddie is the right person mark him against. His career trajectory is pretty unusual for a top level strongman. If Eddie does win WSM he will be the slowest to progress to that in terms of WSM appearances that I can think of. Even to take 5 years to make the podium is pretty slow. Strongman is a weird sport. Almost as if you're going to be great it happens immediately. Just look at the past winners from the last 20 years -

Shaw - Won his third WSM but podium on his second
Z - Won his 6th WSM and podium on his third
Pudz - Won his second WSM
Pfister - Won his fith WSM
Virstyuk - Won his second WSM and podium on his first
Karlsen - Won his fith WSM and podium on his thrid
Virtanen - Won his third WSM and podium on his second
Ahola - Won his first WSM
Samuelson - Won his fourth WSM and Podium on the third.

Slightly misleading with pfister as he missed a few years and also did ifsa worlds.

Z obviously same. There was a good few years between his first podium and his first win but could have happened sooner had the split not happened.

Shaw won on his 4th wsm

Ham said:Going to add a perhaps controversial opinion here:

If a person needs any equipment to help them lift then it is not "raw" or "natural".

Any includes, wraps, chalk, sleeves, belts. If you can't lift it on your can't lift it. Full stop.

I know most don't agree with this but remember it is just my opinion.

I kind of agree but by wearing sleeves etc youre only lifting weights you could without but limiting the injury risk, that is why i put them in a different category to suits

Chalk just dries sweat off hands so dont agree with that one
