Somehow I thought there had already been a threat like this, but I didn’t find one. Anyway, these are the details:
- You are the promoter, the goal is to make this contest appealing both to the audience and to potential competitors.
- Implement access, number of helpers etc is not a factor, you’re completely covered.
- 5 events. Medleys are of course allowed.
What events would you choose, and why?
- Medley: Yoke & Tire flip
I think this is just visually very appealing for the audience. Anyone can see this is heavy. This would preferrably be done head to head in two or even three lanes.
- Press medley: Axle, log & block into Viking press for reps.
Order of the first three implements can be chosen by the competitor. I like it when there’s more of a tactical element to the approach.
- Car deadlift for reps.
Simply the most visually appealing deadlift variation. Also something few competitors can really do in training.
- Truck pull
This is, I think, on many competitors’ bucket lists and always a crowd favorite. Preferrably an old fire engine like WSM 2007.
- Loading medley
Carry and load various objects to a platform: natural stone, fire hydrant, sandbag, anchor, stuff like that. Competitors can choose the order of implements themselves.
Looks pretty damn exhausting for the competitors, but assuming it’s a five event contest, this would be pretty close to my ideal contest to watch, plus it has a lot of things I’d like to try myself.
What about you guys?
