Hi, a friend of mine is looking for strongman events suitable for novices. Later in the year ideally. Does anyone know of any, or know where he'd find a list?

The best place to look and monitor is another forum called Sugden Barbell. An excellent and friendly for all levels, types and competitions of strength in the UK.

He's in Wales, as for weight I've no idea at all. Just a friend of a friend who messaged me in fb asking for advice Smiley

There are a couple in Wales, and a few in the West Country for novices throughout the year. A lot pop up with 1-2 months notice, others give more. But generally you'll need to put your name down via text or on the forum for novices.

Yes the events vary massively. He'll need to view them and see if they suit before he enters. All the events will be posted. For example, deadlifts for reps for nvoices can vary between 180 and 220kg, axle press between 80 and 110kg, and farmers the same difference as the axle press each hand. So it's worth reading each.

There a competitions page on the site, but there are more on the comp forum board.

Nevertheless, its a great forum and I avoid it at the moment as I come away every time wanting to eat and lift big and be a strongman. It's not good for my training ADHD.

To be fair theres less and less comps getting posted on sugden and more on facebook which I`m not sures a good thing, I used to like that there was a central place to find details on all comps http://www.britishstrongman.co.uk/ is quite useful too
