    Most allow wraps, elastic sleeves, belts and more. There are some which do not and it's best to ask before the event. However, get as strong as you can so as to not over rely on such aids.

    Agree with mobster. Basics like elbow, knee and back neoprenes and belts are allowed. Suits and wraps allowed at most comps too but you do need to check first. At BSM 2004 for the squat event we could wear suits, belts and wraps. For pressing event only allowed belt, no neoprene belt or elbow neoprenes allowed. Different at each event.

    Iv yet to see a strongman comp were you couldnt wear knee wraps - But if I was you I`d save them for use at the comp!

    I was doing reps with 270kg last night and they felt good i dont think im that far from 300kg, probably not ass to floor yet though the biggest problem for me is getting the weight off the bar and also getting it back on

    No good - if you need to train it twice a week make one session DE and one ME!

    One (DE)light 50-60% of your max single- 8-10sets of 2-3reps explosive!

    Max effort(ME) - dont think I need to explain this one!

    Personally I dont like to train it this way but each to they`r own!

    I don't think it's necessary to do a Westside style DE/ME thing if you're training a lift twice a week - just don't do as many reps as you can both times (or either time some weeks). One day go heavy - up to singles and doubles up to around 85-90%1RM, and another day go lighter, say 70-80%1RM for 3-5 reps or a set for as many as possible.

    Training a lift twice a week to bring it up is a good idea but just don't overdo it within the session.
