Graham Hicks 300kg squat x 6

With the qualifier for Europe’s Strongest Man next weekend in Swindon, England the line-up – which includes veteran Mark Felix, former 105kg turned WSM competitor Graham Hicks and current 105kg champ Ben Kelsey – is looking rather strong!

Mr Hicks has been making some outstanding progress and, most recently, shared this video of a 300kg squat for 6 reps – all to a decent depth too!

Hicks is probably best known for his log press, being one of the few strongman to have cleared a 200kg log. His recent video showing 3 reps of a one-motion 160kg suggests he’ll be breaking some PBs (and potentially records) soon.

Going into Europe’s qualifier next week Hixxy and Felix look to be the favourites, but with a large field of competitors who knows what will happen! We’ll be there to update with the latest results and provide glossy photos and videos of the events as they happen.
