    still, a good move on his part.
    another option, if he could arrange it, would be do a Larry Wheels & get up to Iceland to have a few weeks with Thor? or get some sessions in with Eddie Hall. I think he'd pick up a tonne of experience

    Going to Iceland would be dependant on his sponsors cos he certainly doesn't have the finances.

    hmm, he'll probably need to look at that then. More sponsors? clothing, supp range, monetized Youtube channel, the usual suspect.
    He'll be as good as his wallet allows him to be, I guess.

    To my knowledge he has discount codes for supps and clothing wear
    (likely about as valuable as one of LDL’s meals for gainz)

    He’s also just switched sponsor from Serberus ( knee straps, wrist supports, lifting straps) to SBD? I think they were his main sponsor.

    Fingers crossed he can make his mark on the world stage or at the very least the European.

    i was think more along the lines of setting up his own clothing line, like Benni Magnusson, Brian Shaw, Thor etc.
    He would also be worth him trying to get friendly with Darren Saddler who run Giants Live, as I'm sure he'd be able to help get some contacts for other sponsorship/appearences etc.
    We'll see what happens I guess. I wish him well

    I hear you on clothing front etc but that’s a tough ass market. Unless he were to actually win an event or I reckon people wouldn’t be arsed for purchasing it, and even then.... He’s also got well documented autism / Asperger so that sort of stuff would likely have to be done by a management team which in turn leads to money going out..
    I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t already in tandem with the lad that runs Giants.

    Ah, didn't know that about him. Maybe a Monetized Youtube channel? i'm sure his brother could help him out there.
    I'll be honest, though, i've no idea how the Youtube thing works, but I'd watch his training and stuff. I'm already watching Benni, Thor, Shaw, Hall & Loz (who's retiring this year, I hear)

    Not true bruh. He was still alive, just cryogenically frozen like Hands Soreen from the Star Wars.

    As you can see my testing methods were scrupulous. I’m afraid the hypothesis just does not stand up to critique.

    Pls use black doesn’t crack (at room temperature) going forward/10

    Correct, Iceland is risky.I think it would be wiser to go to Sainsbury’s. They have a better selection of goods.

    How has Zake Muluzi got an invite to worlds ffs. No offence to him but that's more about who he knows than what he's done. Never done a giants live show...

    For those not on fb Thor is injured after dropping a yoke on his foot, plantar fascia tear.
    Loz is out too torn achilles tendon.
    Yokes were stupidly heavy and overloaded in error 520 instead of 450 and 609 instead of 595kg. Brutal.
