120kg class sounds like a good idea, there are plenty of 105kg compeititors who cut 5kg+ for day before weighins, would be a good progression for them

Also day before weighins should be scrapped so we have true 80's, 90's, 105's etc

LessThanLuke said:Just my opinion but if you are 115-120kg and natural you are probably carrying a fair bit of fat (unless you're tall) so why not just get in better shape rather than create a class? If you are 120kg of muscle and you aren't strong enough to do ok at an open level then something is wrong.


Don't really follow the logic, and you are basing what you say on a lot of assumptions about what is or isn't necessary to grow to a certain size.

Putting the drugs debate aside, cutting weight puts people backwards quickly. As you cut weight, your lifts will stall and some will go backwards. If your mindset is based on your success in the next competition only...then this is fine. But to make any real progress in this sport, making consistent progress, year after year, is what it's about.

Can't really do the poll as technically my answer is no to another weight class but yes to a 120kg weight class. I think 4 weight classes ( 80, 90, 105, opens) is plenty but should be fairer, imo something like 80, 100, 120, opens. While I'm giving my opinion, I also would like to see comps like a leauge, so light (cover novice), medium (cover inters) and heavy (cover open) so that those not ready to move up can compete with people around their level.

Because the sport hasnt got as much interest as 'mainstream' sports, i think the more you segement it and make it confusing the less people will be attracted by it. Its strongman, so you need strength and men, im too simple for too much more than that

I actually have a comp' in mind with a set of events that I think would be really good for 120's... was thinking about it as North West's Strongest Man but maybe a 120kg championship would be better?


I'm still keen to hear your idea for events

is the lmoa bit mean you dont want that comp to happen, i think it would be good. esp if they were all head to head.

personally though id combine the yoke and the carry and drag into a massive medly, then you can have stones as well

Yes I'm sure if terry wins the upcoming BSM he will be breaking his heart cause shane is u80 BSM, so his title is somehow less meaningful...
