I'm sure you'd do a great job JP, but I still hope those guys are gonna come!
I'd really like to meet both of them in person, especially xolix since he comes off as a funny guy. :)

And if you bring the plates maybe you can also bring your 73kg stone? I'd love to try that one, even though I probably won't get it off the floor... much... ;)

Pack it anyway. You might get pulled up at immigration. :shock:

Are you going to attempt 500lb squat? Hopefully there are enough plates!

hey any news on the strongman/woman thing? Like what kind of events etc? Or will we decide those on the week?

so far it looks like will be maxing out on:

squat
deadlift
front squat
snatch
clean & jerk

:D

HEAVY week coming up!!!

Don´t forget the bench JP ;)
There will be enough Plates for 500lb , i have around 400lb and Floey brings more plates with him.


Strongman looks like this atm. : I have only a Stone and a Log at the moment, maybe floey can bring a bit of his equipment then it would be better.
At least a farmer or a yoke would be nice, and he has a light log.
