Looks pretty cool. Welcome to the board Eric. There is definitely a lot of carryover in Strongman to improving your grip.

Re: 2013 Arnold World Am's

One twist is that there is a strongman fitness class added for men and women mixed in too. Don't like it but it appeals to a wider audience so I get it. What don't you like about it? I don't like the name they chose, it sounds too much like crossfit and the weight class should be higher maybe 200lb...

Re: World's Natural Strongman Federation - Calgary Sept 29th

We will never really know for sure about anyone, except I guess for the athletes who use PED's and are open and honest about it. Certainly there are men among us who have a much a higher natural genetic potential for strength and performance, we all know that to be true. What the upper limits of th...

I believe Pfister and possibly Karl Gillingham being natural but not a lot of natty's at the top that's for sure.

After checking their records page and seeing that Laszlo has a 400lb Log and a 525lb max Atlas Stone it's kind of hard to believe that he's all natural. Not impossible but very unlikely. Hard to believe? C'mon man. Laszlo has been around for a long time. He has competed for like 20+ years. Not many...
