I'm relatively new to the sport of Strongman but isn't it basically just do whatever it takes to get the weight up? Taking a page out of @T3hPwnisher's playbook... Strongman/Weightlifting/Powerlifting. It's all mixed up.
Strongman should be called weightlifting, do whatever it takes to move the weight. Hitch/ramp/straps/suits/etc.
Weightlifting should be called Powerlifting, after all. There's very little, if any, movements that come close to the power output of the snatch/clean and jerk.
Powerlifting should be called Strongman. Why? At least the way I see it, it's all about how much you can lift and the rules such as depth for the squat/pause for the bench/no hitching for the deadlifts are there to ensure that you're able to do it without any gimmicks. That being said, the current state of powerlifting with all the high arch wide grip and wide stance sumo deadlifts with short ROMs do somewhat change that but y'all get the idea.
Damn, I sure went off on a tangent...
