So I have been a fan of World's Strongest Man for years, but I don't do much lifting myself so I don't fully know the mechanics behind the sport. A lot of the Strongmen have very large bellies, and I was just wondering what, if any, benefits would they get from having such large guts? Does it...

Knee sleeves-best bang for the buck

Hey all, what kind of knee sleeves are you all using? I know that SlingShot's are probably the best, but they also cost a pretty penny. Is there a pair you have found that deliver what you're looking for, but at a fraction of the cost?

Do People only compete Raw these days?

So I've been out of the game for 17 years. Back then, everyone competed in bench shirts and squat suits. Now it seems from looking at results that pretty much eveyrone competes raw. Is this the case?
