So many good opens nowadays I don't understand why they don't mix up the line ups to give people a rest.

They both train in the same city with the same coach I believe. I bet it's about a bulls**t slight at the gym or a girl. Too much testosterone.

Novi is also super friendly with Shivlyakov.

The Olympic Charter indicates that in order to be accepted, a sport must be widely practiced by men in at least 75 countries and on four continents and by women in no fewer than 40 countries and on three continents

And how many countries compete in the Natty Worlds. Like 3?

Is there an official height for stone records and are onto platform and over yoke equally valid?


48" Donna's previous record was to so that's what we'll be going to.

Yeah classes as the same thing!

Samthepigman said:Maybe I'm not being very good at what I'm trying to get across.

The point I'm kind of making is like, comparing Football and 5 a side football. Football is the only true Football. It's not just kicking a ball around, it's played with a specific set of rules, for a specific amount of time, and with a specific number of players. If all these aren't followed, your not technically playing Football, officially anyway.

So what I'm kind of saying is, Strongman should also be defined by a certain set of conditions to make it "strongman".

Example: a competition consisting of a minimum of 5 events, all of which test a different aspect of strength, shoulder, leg, grip, back and functional (moving events).

Obviously there would be more conditions to make it Strongman, but that's just an example.

At the moment people just seem to call anything that involves lifting an odd object of some sort an official Strongman competition and break any record they feel like ?


Why 5?

I competed in a World Champs that only had 4 events. Was that not a strongman comp hah.

(For the record I think national comps should have a minimum of 6)

I don't know how they do this without a handicap. In groups half the field missed the 4 implements. The other half took 20-30 secs in the final. Novi resorted to moonwalking something Shaw and Tom sprinted with. Any suggestion? More light implements maybe, but then most did the first 3 of 4 in groups.

The frame was lighter in the final

You could be right. I think heat is good indicator for fitness all the same. It's a light silver dollar setup, not max. Will suit weaker deadlifters. Maybe bad for carron with injury to have reps, not a single lift.

Fitness isn't really a factor I don't think. Maximes max is about 40kg less than everyone else on deads.

luki said:The 4 points for joint forth on keg really made it a race for 3rd.

If they did the same deadlift/squat as in heats we'd have Caron 11 lifts (10points), Thompson/Bishop 9 lifts (8.5 pts), Shaw/Tom/Trey/Janashia joint 8 lifts (6pts), Eythor 7 lifts (3pts), then Maxime/Luke 6 lifts (1.5pts).

Luke going to have to push Stones and Log very hard to come 3rd now. Eythor did 6 log reps in Hixxys group last WSM to beat Caron and Thompson. Could cost some points for the Canadians. Also a natural stone record holder looking strong on stones in heats. I think he could be 4th on stones after Tom, Shaw and Luke.

Facebook live stuff
GIANTS Meadley.
Shaw bounced the implement front off the ground in pickup. Managed to keep going, without a stop. I think most would have dropped.
Luke and Tom went head to head. Luke dropped early at finish. Lost balance. Tom overtook while he lifted over line. Luke was winning and maybe would have been 17secs but for early release.
Bit of a funny meadley without front carry IMHO.

Turntable
Brice was discussing using back straight with extended arms at the start of the push vs putting shoulders into the post. Tom, Janashia had the mobility to do arms out front and got it moving fastest.
A lot of guys have to bend arms to push. According to Licis this causes shoulder pump. So the bent arm guys will shoulder and transition to arms out. However, the turntable slows during the arm switch and just brutal to get moving again.

Keg Toss
Shaw wanted to do 8.5m, but settled for 7.75m WR.

Maxime had squat in the heats. His deadlift is very poor. He'll come last on that event.
