|He's also 41 and injury prone. Hall was one rep begin him 3 years ago. Only one of them has got much stronger and it isn't Z.|
I have to objective. Even if Ed came on here and told me I'm a c**t, I'm still picking him to win those events. The f**kers Strong as an ox. He isn't losing static events to anyone now.

|Even if he squats 330 raw for 10, it won't win him the event. Have you guys not seen how Ed plays with 340 without wraps and belts.|
He will win that and the deadlift. Also Viking press. I'm no Ed fan boy, but it's his year.

|I love static lifting, so I'm glad squat and deadlift are both there.|
I wish they would ban suits. The strongest would still win.
Not a huge fan of Viking press, would of preferred log, or an old school medley.

|Some of you boy's will be surprised with Shaw's squat. Only Ed, Z and Pritchett (if makes final) will maybe best him.|

|Good to see him back to health.|

|If Ed doesn't mess up tyre and drag, he should win. He will most likely get 3 event wins.|

Legend of the sport no doubt
Not sure what bodyweight mate. Looks under 120kg anyway. Still strong too!

It shows his passion for the sport. I enjoy watching the man deadlift.

|I have seen a couple of recent videos of Andy on youtube.|
He is looking very healthy and is lifting explosively again.
Fair play to the man, for making a comeback and I hope he has his health issues behind him.
Always love watching him lift. Great speed and technique.
Even at his lighter bodyweight, he is still pulling 600 plus pounds, like it's an empty barbell.

- Flip & Drag
- Axle Squat
- Truck Pull
- Viking Press
- Atlas Stones
Axle squat and Deadlift? Only one winner in that final.

|It could be real, though I still think it's doubtful. Though just for argument sake;|
Bodybuilders are good at repping. I've seen some guys rep the s**t out of 140, yet barley push 160-170.
This guy could have a max of 280-290 (still massive weight), yet rep similar to the 335 Krilli.
Obviously if the weights go up, mr Bodybuilder would then struggle.

|If guy A totals 650 and guy b totals 800. Perhaps the first chap doesn't want to look weak, so pulls the natty card. |
If c**ts are willing to cheat in a tested fed, surely many will deny using in untested. Not everyone is comfortable admitting drugs, perhaps for work reasons, or any other moral reasons.
Loads of untested lifters look a couple months out from a bodybuilding stage.
Now I'm not saying everyone uses in an untested fed and it would be ignorance to suggest it. I am sure there are many lifters that lift in a fed for many different reasons and not all are drug related.
Unless Sam means, anyone not snorting halo, putting oxy's in their cornflakes, or indulging in Slin Shots is natty. Then you perhaps 30% is right!!!

FAT_SAM said:Garbage like this stops powerlifting from growing.
I lift in a untested fed, and probably as many as 70% of the lifters are not on anything at all.
ABPU is a tested fed anyway.
Out of that 70% I bet many are lying. I could never prove it, but I reckon at least half are going to use. Not everyone is as honest as you Sam.

|Thor and Brian are close, but Ed, Z and Hicks are the three.|
Radz has silly power on the shoulders too. He makes near maxes look effortless.
If I'm being honest, I have to say Ed is the favourite to break any static World Record. That's no disrespect to any other athlete, but that guy has freaky static power.
