Strongman competition warm-up?
This is a question for the guys that take part in Strongman events, or have taken part in them.
I sat watching the WSM 2011 and when they came to the deadlift which I think started at 340kg (feel free to correct that), I wondered if they did warm-up lifts due to the starting weight load being so high...and at that point the commentator just happened to mention that they warm-up prior to the event.
So, my question is, what sort of a warm-up would that look like (percentage wise etc) and what kind of equipment do they have access to (would they have a barbell of exact dimensions, if they were expected to pull an axle in the deadlift etc) , and how far ahead of their turn would they have to finish their warm-ups?
I figured that if it they had to warm-up and wait around, the warm-up would be pointless, necessary but they'd lose some of the benefits...so, I'm kinda curious, and it will help others that are considering Strongman events, as well.
