    first event is Apollon's Wheels.

    The Apollon's Wheel will return to a maximum repetitions event in 2011, with the contestants lifting a 415-pound (187 kg) barbell over their heads as many times as possible.

    second event of the day is the massive Hummer Tire deadlift.

    my prediction; more than half the fiel will go more than 1,000lbs.

    Are they allowed to put it overhead in whatever way possible? I take it at that weight this isn't a strict press lol

    most guys use an over and under grip to bring it to their belly. no hooking on their belt if they wear one. then a switch of the underhand and a buck onto their shoulders. press is either a jerk or a press.

    I didn't realize how heavy the weight was for that event, I have a newfound respect for those guys. The first time I ever push pressed 2 plates overhead I had never been more psyched in my life. Repping out 415 is just nuts...

    rocks the stage when they drop it... but to know its going up and up and up over and over again. technique, power, strength and conditioning are exemplified here.
