HCIV, Talyn, Hayden and myself are currently watching Hannibal tearing it up for veganism. He's the only raw lifter in his weight class, too. :shock:

yeah i made a pledge never to lie down and push weights away from myself again.


Not even a close-grip token effort to get you through to the deadlift platform? ;)

lol!! :D That's a pretty sound assessment of how we'd do kryptoshinybuddy, you've maybe even been quite generous to me on a couple of events :D!! I fully expect a gravelling, but i will relish it like never before. I think it's part of some crazy gala thing too, so crowd will be big. Theory - crowd like a trier, and sympathy yields many carrots. Book your flight my man!! :)

I feel like bumping this because Joel the MVS and all round vegan muscle truck placed third in his body building show two weekends ago and amazingly placed first in his bodybuilding show yesterday!

He has another show next weekend where I'm sure he'll do well also.

This is from the first comp a couple of weeks ago.

[quote="JP"]biceps are very important in strongman! With big biceps if the competition doesnt go well, at least you will look good.[/quote]
