Sticky Thread Sticky: Forum FAQs and Links **Read Before Starting a Thread**

Number one: YES YOUR LIFTS ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO COMPETE. IF YOU CAN LIFT THE BAR AND COLLARS (25KG/55LBS), WRITE YOUR NAME ON AN ENTRY FORM, AND PAY THE ENTRY FEE YOU CAN COMPETE. NO ONE IS GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU, YOU WON'T BE EMBARASSED, YOU MAY OR MAY NOT BE "COMPETITIVE" DEPENDING ON WHO SHOWS UP....

How can I deadlift heavier?

I am a very strong person, I squat 750, log press 385, bench 340, but only deadlift 550 because I am short and have stubby arms. How can I overcome this problem that has been plaguing me as a short heavyweight strongman? Thank you.

Joe Ladnier is a complete ***hole!

I email him from time to time asking opinions or advice and today he totally blew me off by saying something like, "Do you ever pay for information or you just pick people's brains for information for free". What a complete ***hole. If he is gonna act like this, he needs to take his email address...

What Diameter Log is Used in Competitions?

I assumed 12" for the longest time, but now I'm noticing that Slater Logs doesn't even have a 12" available for purchase, and a lot of other sites seem to push 10" logs quite a bit as well. I want to get whatever size is most often used in pro or legitimate amateur competitions, just for the...

Too many federations. Which is right for me?

I'm looking to do my first meet. I found a website that has a search engine to find lift meets, which is great. But... I had no idea there were a never ending supply of federations that put on meets. I have no clue which one would be correct for me, as it would take weeks of researching each...

Hello, I like working out at home, but I've been to every gym in town. I've trained for the past seven years, and my strength may set records soon. If you wouldn't stop training naturally, you'll become a medium-build, magazine, physique. Girls are super friendly. This year, my strength...

Thoughts on Program to Help with Strongman and Athleticism

I am coming off a powerlifting routine, so I wanted to avoid the SBD competition lifts and do some different stuff. Also, I’m trying to get a little more athletic and well rounded. I tried to throw in a handful of strongman movements. I may have a rest day after every third lifting day. Day 1...

Good Numbers For First Meet

I currently weigh 160, 10% BF, fasting. I've been wanting to do a powerlifting meet to really see my capability, but I am a very competitive person and don't want to show up completely out of my league. My current lifts are: Squat: 375 (Easy, could more than likely hit 405 in a few months)...

Pain under ribs after deadlifting????

Has anyone ever experienced this? I was on my 2nd set of deads with a relatively light weight when I began to feel discomfort under my ribs. Like a fool I of course finished my last 3 sets and it was not pleasant but not excrutiatingly painful. I did 4 sets of over head presses with little...
