Re: Events for 2014 OSM- What Are Your Thoughts

Silver dollar DL would be epic. the crowd loves the last man standing format and it would be cool to see someone lift near a grand. for pressing I was thinking a circus DB medely , with the final implement being an Ontario record. Something like 160/180/200/230 or something to that tune like they di...

Re: Ontario and Canadian Strongman Records.

Please view the orginal post to see the updated Ontario Log Press Record. Congrats to Ben R with a lift of 380lb. Not sure if the show was sanctioned, but it seems to be a pretty legit contest, with Magnus ver Magnuson as the ref.

Re: Interview with me!

The link doesn't work for me any more however I'm curious why deloads are the worst idea ever? Craig Doe sent work anymore eh? Strange I feel like they're awful because that time spent deloading could be 100% rest time and I could be back to heavy business much quicker. I can't wrap my head around ...

Re: Best way to mimic a car DL?

Little help here... Farmers picks? High pick Trap Bar? Rack Pull? Thanks in advance. all 3 of those, you want your pull heights to be from 15-21 inches so your ready for anything. do one each week and keep rotate them and keep busting your old PR's. Ideally I like to be doing my 19 inch rack pulls ...

Re: Where to start...

Hi all, I'm not new to lifting, but I am new to the strongman side of things. I'm looking for training advice, and want to get pointed in the right direction. The first live event I've been to was in Thunder Bay at the OSM competition, and I was hooked after seeing it. I'm not sure how busy this bo...

Re: Thunder Bay's Strongest Man Results

After the 4th event, Myself, Kyle Rayner and Luke Skaarup took an attempt at a 225LB Circus Dumbell.

I feel like all 3 of us would hit it had we not just done 4 events.


Awesome contest, lotsa fun!

Re: Amateur or Pro discussion

I've always loved this debate some people have. "Pro" is a moniker. We don't have a pro status in Canada until you compete internationally basically. It means that you have made money at this sport. Until then you are amateur technically. Levels such as novice, intermediate, and expert are more app...
