STATIC MONSTERS Singapore - Strongman Competition

Static Monsters 2022 Singapore Strongman Competition

What is it?

The Static Monsters Worldwide is a one weekend, super sized strongman competition with events running across more than 25 countries. All events follow the same rules, equipment regulations and scoring system. This offers competitors a world ranking on their Log Lift and Axle Deadlift.

Oompf! Fitness is hosting the 2022 Static Monsters Worldwide event in Singapore.

It’ll take place at our gym on the 29th of October (Saturday) at 2pm (weigh in from 11am onwards).

We are located at 130 East Coast Road, 428815.

The event consists in two lifts:

1- The Log Press

The Log Press is an iconic strongman movement, where athletes have to pick up a log from the floor and press it over their head.

2- The Axle Deadlift

Heavy Axle Deadlift Homemade with Construction Engine Tyres at Oompf Fitness

Deadlifts are one of the most popular movements in strength sports, and is performed in various forms in olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, strongman, Crossfit and bodybuilding.

The Axle deadlift is a variation of that movement, using a thicker barbell (50mm diameter) and massive tyres to have a starting position slightly higher than usual. This results in incredible lifts, and the pride of pulling this massive & impressive implement!

Who Can Take Part?

Strongman is for everyone who is interested in giving the sports a go!

The goal of this competition is to offer the opportunity for anyone to be able to have a go at the sport, regardless of ability.

Weight categories are in place and will be used for the local and international ranking:

Women’sMens
u52.5kg u70kg 
u62.5kg u80kg 
u72.5kg u90kg 
u82.5kg u105kg 
OpenOpen

Competitors must weigh-in under their weight class as is it listed under 90kg, under 82.5kg, etc.
For example: if you weigh in 90.0kg you will be listed as under 105kg. If you weigh in as 89.9kg you will be listed as under 90kg.

Every competitor, no matter which class (even opens) must weigh in, this is to adjust world rankings as there are regularly tie’s in Monster Totals.

Masters (40 years old and above) and Adaptive Athletes (contact us before registration) will compete within their Weight Classes. Their Masters and Adaptive rankings come separately as well. They will receive multiple rankings as a part of the Worldwide event then. For Example. A Male who weighs in at 89.9kg and turns 40 before October 22nd 2021, will get a ranking in both the Men’s under 90kg Class and in the Masters Class.

SINGAPORE STRONGMAN

Having organized strongman competitions in Singapore since 2014, Singapore Strongman is helping us by providing Wagon wheels that will allow athletes who can’t lift the massive 245kg axle implement we have built to use wagon wheels instead. The starting weight of only 110kg for the axle equipped with wagon wheels will make it easier for more athletes to get involved!

Running Order

  • The log lift must always be before the deadlift when running the event.
  • Athletes are allowed to compete in only one of the events if they choose.

Scoring

  • Your final score is a combined total of your heaviest completed Log Lift and heaviest completed deadlift under the below rules.
  • The highest total in each division will be declared the winner.
  • If two totals are the same in any division, the competitor that weighed in the lightest will be declared the winner of that class. If however the competitors are listed as the same weight at the weigh-in, then it will count back to who had the heaviest log lift.
  • Athlete will still get a score even if they “Zero” one of the lifts.

The Log Lift

  • Competitor will have 60 seconds to complete the lift after being given the go ahead from the judge/ref
  • log must be controlled back to the ground. (No Throwing of the implement). The log does not need to be returned to the chest on the descent, only controlled to the ground.
  • Any dropped lift will result in a failed lift and will not count. If you are told your lift does not count, you may attempt it again providing you still have time within your allotted 60 seconds for that particular lift
  • Each competitor has 3 attempts.
  • 60 seconds to complete the lift after the whistle blows. Lifter can continue to lift until the full 60 seconds are up.
  • Competitor nominates their opening attempt for both events at the time of checking for the event.
  • Competitor can not drop their nominated weight after a failed attempt or a completed attempt.
  • No minimum weight increase. This is due to international events crossing over to lbs or kgs.
  • No points awarded if no complete lifts are counted
  • Lift is completed when the judge calls “down”. To receive the “down” call, the lifter must have knees, hips and shoulders locked out and head “through”. Watch this VIDEO
  • Competitor may change their first lift, once only, up to 5 minutes out from the start of the event, not after.
  • Competitor to nominate their second lift weight immediately after completion of their first lift
  • Competitor may change their second lift weight, once only, But it can not be lesser than the weight that is currently on the bar.
  • Competitor to nominate their third lift weight immediately after completion of their second lift
  • Competitor may change their third lift weight, twice only, but it can not be lesser than the weight that is currently on the bar.
  • If the competitor successfully locks out a rep just before the buzzer but then drops the implement in an uncontrolled way, the rep will not count.
  • Belts are allowed, an under belt and an over belt is allowed. Two belts, one above the other on the torso (equivalent to a stepped setup), is not allowed. A loop in the belt is not allowed. Nothing is allowed to be added to, or stuffed into the belt to make a shelf.

  • wraps and sleeves are allowed, including “equipped” elbow sleeves. One item per joint. IE one elbow sleeve, not multiple sleeves on the one elbow. (wraps on elbows aren’t allowed)
  • Spotter on Log Lift: if a spotter is on the log lifting event and they intervene with a lift, the log has to be reset to the ground for the lift to start again. If it is deemed that the log spotter stepped in too early, which can only be ruled by the judge, then the lifter can opt to have another 60 seconds added to their time then and there, or they can take this lift again at the end of the round of their flight. If the lifter chooses to continue during their current 60 seconds, they will not be allowed to take another 60 seconds after the round, if they fail during their current lift period.
  • The log can not be rested on the top of the head during the lift. It may however be allowed to touch the head during the upward trajectory.

The Axle Deadlift

  • A conventional stance deadlift is mandatory. No Sumo stance allowed, no Jefferson deadlifts or any other variation, conventional deadlift only. Hands must be outside the knees for the entire duration of the lift.
  • Straps allowed, figure 8 straps also allowed. However they must be tight and the hands have to be around/holding the axle. A long figure 8 strap with “fingertips” being the only thing touching the bar will not be an acceptable lift.
  • Deadlift suits are allowed.
  • No Tacky allowed.
  • Each competitor has 3 attempts.
  • Competitor can not drop their nominated weight after a failed attempt or a completed attempt.
  • No minimum weight increase. This is due to international events crossing over to lbs or kgs.

Adaptive Rules

  • Standing: Male – Female Adaptive Static Monsters
  • Same rules as above.
  • Seated: Male – Female Adaptive Static Monsters
  • Seated Deadlift – A regular flat gym bench is required. Make sure the bench is load rated for the lifters weight combined with their planned maximum deadlift. Prone Row is also an acceptable lift in this scenario. The axle is needed but the athlete may use straps if they like. To judge the Prone Row, the bar must start from a full hang, then rowed to touch the underside of the bench and then lowered to the full hang again.
  • Seated Log Lift – Minimum degree of angle on the incline is 55 Degrees.
  • No “rolling” the log into the rack position. The log must start from a stationary position from the rack of the lifter. If the competitor is rolling the log into position, then the safety bars are too high.
  • Considerations for being an Adaptive Athlete, as taken from the “Classes” section of this website:
  • For the standing division, you must have a physical disability that prevents you from safely handling the weights in the open division and/or competing evenly against athletes without any disabilities. For the seated division, you need to either have a physical disability that requires you to use a wheelchair or you meet the physical criteria for the standing division but you choose to compete in a wheelchair. For instance, if you have a prosthetic leg, you may compete in either division, depending on how you feel the prosthetic limb will hold up. If you are competing in the seated division, all athletes will be using the same wheelchair for the events. For the neuro division, you must have cerebral palsy, spina bifida, MS, or some similar condition that impairs optimal neurological function at a high enough level to put you at a disadvantage going against someone with a fully functioning nervous system.
