So - in the UK the 120kg weight class is becoming a thing.
Personally I think its a brave move. And a good one. Not for the reasons stated. This will not stop guys from cutting weight. The guys that were 120kg cutting to 105kg will be replaced by guys that are 135kg cutting to 120kg.
BUT it will allow guys that want to compete and remain able to live a fairly normal life. Trying to work as a sales assistant the local mobile phone shop and be a 150kg strong man is not possible. Getting to 120/125kg and still being fairly normal is fine. I weigh in at 115/118 and I face almost no adverse side effects.
