#4

#5

#6

True. If I hung out with those guys, I would probably be fifty pounds heavier. :slightly_smiling:

BTW, Poundstone is at 315 with abs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DerekPose.JPG


#7

#8

that is a big man right there


#9

fucking swole.


#10

I'm curious what the difference is between the federations and why they don't compete against each other. Any strongmen care to answer this?


#11

Give me half a decade, and it will be me you guys are linking from youtube.

No joke.


#12

What federations? Who doesn't compete against each other?


#13

In the video they said that Derek Poundstone did not compete in the "Worlds Strongest Man" competition on TV and that it was a different federation.


#14

Apparently, he has switched federations now, so he does compete in the WSM. I think I read that on Wiki.


#15

poundstone competes in WSM, He almost beat Pudz last year and took second.

As far as feds go, are you refering to WSM and IFSA.


#16

This. He almost won too. If it hadn't been raining I think he would have won


#17

Bear in mind that video is over 2 years old

There's no more IFSA. Honestly, the technicalities and hair-splitting are not even interesting enough to go over. suffice it to say that when ifsa was around they prohibited their guys from competing in non-ifsa contests. Now that there is no more ifsa you're just left with the usual bs of guys who deserve an invite not getting one for who-knows-what-reason


#18

I've eaten with Andy Vincent, the guy who took third this year.

To say he eats a lot is an understatement.


#19

Yep, the stone slipped out.


#20

Andy trains in our gym, he's a good dude. Strong as hell too. He'll be one to watch for people that are not familiar with him.
