    Strongman Marathon on ESPN

    Did you guys watch that? All I gotta say is those are some HUGE mofo's! That's what power is all about, I don't care about seeing a 6 pack, if you can flip a car over or pick it up & run with it, you da man!! Those guys must be pumping in some serious food & juice. The youngest guys there were like 28 or 29, so that just goes to show you about muscle maturity, there was one guy who was 45. That impresses the hell outta me, maybe one day

    Damn....we have TSN in Canada so we didn't get it!! I LOVE watching those comps....those guys are straight up bad ass!! Speaking of muscle maturity, 3 years ago Whit Baskin (U.S.A.) competed at 21yrs old and was "SUPER" thick through the chest , traps, delts and upper arms and back. He looked like he was 28-30yrs as far as muscle maturity goes.

    Kaz was the man!! Sven Karlsen though is one tough mother boy!!! Kaz would've won a 4th time if he didn't injure his ankle, still finished impressively! Goes to show you though, the Europeans train outdoors and more for that style comp then the Americans, I like the strength coach from UNLV what's his name Difilippi (SP) props to all those guys. Sorry to say, but if you don't have some massive weight & thickness to you you ain't gonna pull tracktertrailers or a fukkin plane!! Their body weight does come into play with those events.

    No flame bro...but Ryan Phillipi starred in "54" and "I Know What You Did Lat Summer"

    Mark Phillipi is the strength coach at UNLV and has twice won the U.S.A. Strongman Comp. I may be mistaken but he has yet to make a WSM final...in all fairness to Mark he has twice been seriously injured while competing and his background is powerlifting and wieghtlifting. Many of the WSM competitors train "specifically" for the events involved. Canada's Strongest Man (Hugo Girrard) finished 4th in 1999 and was injured in 2000. Here is a link for any who are interested.

    BK....Kaz was the man and STILL looks absolutely incredible. My favorite competitor in recent years is Jouko Ahola.
