  2. is this a feeder competition to the worlds strongest man that is normally on the tv at Xmas? great if it is.

    no atlas balls though. love watching that event. I know others are harder but there is something 'classic' about this

  3. This is not a feeder to the competition you see on the telly, as this version of Britain's Strongest Man is "Natural" ie drug tested, to fit in with military ethos.

    We ran a first-timers competition last month which had stones, so we thought that we would be slightly different for this comp. 3 of the events were dictated by the organisers of the finals anyway
  4. This 'farmers walk' you have to bring your own wellies?
  5. Come on chaps - this isn't the Naafi section: it's a serious thread on Sports, Adventure Training & Events.

    The term is: Cloth-backed, nylon fastening tape. Let us keep the product endorsements where they belong, not here.
  6. If the weights here look a bit juicy for most, there will be another first-timers comp sep/oct time. The idea being that we will be a "inclusive" sport, getting as many gym rats into the sport as possible. We've already had interest from females, so we will be looking to include events and weights that will suit a wide range of abilities, allowing people to improve over time while still catering to the big boys with the heavier kit.
