    I believe they can skip events. I'd be doubtful of Shaw doing that unless he properly can't walk. He's not the only one with a hamstring either, the elephant bar claimed a few of them.

    Really shitty for the guy who was the alternate because Caron attempted one deadlift he can't be subbed in despite Caron essentially being a non-participant.

    I doubt Shaw will push himself on it if true anyway.
    He's a clever competitor.

    Shaw confirms he did something to his hamstring on the third deadlift attempt. Interesting that he doesn't think a hamstring injury doesn't impact the Wheel of Pain too much.

    Novikov going with the scrummaging technique on the Wheel of Pain, love it.

    EDIT: The Wheel of Pain living up to its name guys collapsing after it.

    Would love to see a prop have a crack at it

    Surprised to see Thor essentially die under it,
    Wtf is that guy who won the Husafell made of? He just non-chalantly walked off after his turn



    Edit:
    So frustrating that shaw is injured, his first rep on the oak was so easy but then you could see his hamstring twang on the 2nd

    Anyone watched 'Sarmageddon' on Mark Bell's Youtube channel? It's really annoyed me, it's not a channel I normally follow but they do get a lot of top lifters on it so there's usually some decent advice in there, so far this 'documentary' is full of bad info at basically just an ad for the products of one guy.

    The main guy (Andrew Zaragoza) classifies himself as a hardgainer and says he really struggles with all his lifts so as he is terrified of needles he's going to do SARMs. He admits he's never followed any diet so it's no ******* wonder he can't gain any weight, CICO will work for anyone. He also got blood work done and it's not something like low T. He benches and squats two plates and can nearly deadlift three for his maxes at a bodyweight of around 80kg yet does a load of conjugate ****. He seems to have no real consistent plan for what he's doing and pretty much epitomises: have you tried trying?

    All of the above I wouldn't really have a problem with. It's his body, he's not hurting anyone else he can do what he wants. My problem mostly comes from the third episode, which is nine minutes longer than the next longest one. In it Zaragoza talks with Dr Tony Huge (who is not a doctor and is a conman) about what he'll be taking. All are produced by a company Huge is associated with and the majority aren't even SARMs. With all of the products he makes a huge number of unsubstantiated claims which is hugely irresponsible. The episode is essentially an ad for his product and provides no real balance to the discussion. It's terrible for the impressionable who may be watching it and just plain terrible documentary film making.

    I watched it because there's so little information about SARMs out there and even though I've no intention of ever taking them I'm still curious but I have not been enlightened one bit by what has been posted so far. Sorry for the rant, needed a bit of a moan.

    As someone who'd probably eventually do at least one cycle of gear if someone I trusted did all the work to put me on a cycle that was as safe as you could expect (which is massively unlikely tbh, I don't really know anyone who has juiced) I don't understand why you'd ever do sarms, they seem fair dodgy and massively ineffective when not supplementing gear. At best their effects are unknown.

    YouTube is just a terrible starting point to learn anything about fitness too unless you're lucky enough to find one of the few good pages. (I can only think of one with a huge amount of subs that I'd recommend to a novice)

    The problem is how new they are, there's a huge amount of misinformation out there which allows those wanting to make quick money gains to do so. A lot of people are drawn by the idea of them not having to inject themselves and the fact that SARMs are legal, at least in the state. Then you have the people making claims with little to no evidence that they have all of the benefits of roids without any of the side effects. Unfortunately there's a lot of people who don't seem to realise if something sounds too good to be true it rarely is.

    Youtube is so hit and miss. A huge amount of beginners seem to gravitate to channels like Athlean-X and become terrified of any exercise causing injury. Often all you need to be is somewhat lean to gain a load of followers and it's often best to have good but not super big lifts as that would be too intimidating. Like it says a lot that Omar Isuf and Alan Thrall would be two of the better channels beginners gravitate towards when they have a lot of their own problems.

    Anyway, going for that four plate skwaat tomorrow. Should have had it a few weeks ago if not for a cold. Reckon a Chinese tonight is proper fuel for it.
