Axle C&J

Athletes will be given an axle to clean and press over their heads as many times in 75sec as possible. Standard olympic sized bumpers will be used and the weight will be pulled from the ground. For a repetition to count, weight must be completely stationary on the ground before attempting a repetition. Athletes must also lock their arms out overhead and have knees and hips locked out with feet flat and side by side (not in a split position) before letting the bar down to the ground. Dumping is allowed. Chalk, belts, sleeves, wraps allowed, but no tacky, suits or straps. If unsure about legal gear, please contact us.

A half point will be awarded to those able to complete 1rep but not the second, however they will still be eliminated from the next round. There are designated buy-in weights prescribed, athletes will take turns lifting the load on the bar until they are eliminated, with the load increasing every round until the last person standing is unable to complete their rep/s.

**********************

The Static Monsters event is here to showcase the greatest levels of Static Strength in the world! The two most respected lifts in Strength sports, the deadlift and the log lift are on the cards to prove who is the mightiest of the strongmen and strongwomen.

The Maximum Axle Deadlift is as simple as it comes in strongman, pick up the heaviest weight you can, just make sure you pick up more than the next competitor! Why an axle, because we need to make it a little harder and a little more unique than the regular barbell deadlift.

The maximum log lift is the pinnacle of pressing tests on the planet. With the popularity of the World Loglift Championships it goes to show the following this one pressing event has in the strongman sport.

The name Static Monsters comes from the combination of a test of Static Strength, the press and the deadlift as well as the sheer ability of these competitors to move monstrous amounts of weight. You will not see weights lifted of this size in another other competition in the world!

2015 saw the inaugural Tasmanian Strongman Series played out with outstanding result! It was amazing to see so many beginners and seasoned athletes take part, I’m sure we all felt the camaraderie and competitive spirit. Many lifelong bonds were forged and we at Strongman Tasmania felt proud to bring the Series to you all.

This year we will be doing something a little bit different. We’ll be running our series in conjunction with the crowning of several regional ‘Most Strongest’ men and women. The first competition will be held in Devonport, with the winning male and female crowned Strongest in North-West Tasmania. There will be additional competitions held around the State, with the strongest in Southern Tasmania (Hobart), Central Tasmania (Launceston) and finally the strongest in Tasmania itself. Again, there will be the four competitions. We do of course have several other big things planned but we’ll announce them in due course.

So it is with excitement that we at Strongman Tasmania, announce, the first competition, Round 1 Tasmanian Strongman Series will be on June 18th in Devonport.

The events will be as follows:

   Yoke & Farmers medley

   Log (ascending weights)

   3 stones over yoke series

   Double overhand Mercy Bar deadlifts for reps

   Keg bear hug carry
