Staticx ? Monster

ABOUT:

Static X's sixth album, Cult of Static, finds the nu-metal veterans steadfastly refusing to change their stripes, and why should they?As they say in the album's title, Static X have a cult that enjoys their adherence to all things that were nu in the '90s: riffs that grind instead of groove, merciless mechanical rhythms, vague drowning synths, all dressed with barking Cookie Monster vocals. Static-X 'Monster': Breathing, killing, seething, willing Fighting, biting, hating, waiting for you Don't you, won't y.

What is Static Monsters?

The Static Monsters is a strongman Push/Pull event with a Max Log and Max Axle Deadlift. These are iconic strength sports events and well known and practiced among strongman athletes. These events are also some of the best events for other strength athletes to pick up in a short time so they can give strongman a go. This is an unsanctioned and does not require any federation membership to compete. Your scores will be submitted to a global scoreboard to see how you stack up against the rest of the static monsters in the world.

EQUIPMENT REGULATIONS:

To keep the events on an even playing field across the world we have come up with some regulations to suit competitors and event organisers alike. The goal is to make this event accessible for competitors of all levels around the world. To do that, event organisers need to have access to similar equipment. With the sport of Strongman having no real set rules other than “If it is in front of you, pick it up, carry it or press it overhead,” there is no set guidelines to how equipment should be made, unlike Powerlifting of Olympic Lifting.

Staticx ? Monster

To that end, we have made guidelines that will suit organiser both north and south of the equator. Obviously, one of the largest audiences for strongman is the USA and uses the older imperial measurements (pounds, inches etc) whereas most of the rest of the world uses the metric system (Kilos and centimetres). This is why there is some leniency for the measurements of the equipment.

Logs in the Southern Hemisphere are typically 8 inches in diameter for women and 10 inches in diameter for men. Northern hemisphere the logs are typically 10 inches in diameter for women and 12 inches in diameter for men. These are generalizations and we understand that each competition is different. Also when making axles, the axles made in the imperial system are marginally different in size to the metric system due to 2 inches is slightly different in diameter to 50 mm.

Adaptive Rules

Static Monsters 2019

  • 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 (without the lifter removing their arms from their sockets).
  • Seated Log Lift – Minimum degree of angle on the incline is 55 Degrees.
  • 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.

World Championship Rules – In addition to the above

Monster Static X Letra

  • The competitor must compete in the class they qualified in. If they are to change classes they will be a non-scoring competitor. This includes if a competitor doesn’t make weight for the class they qualified in.
  • Lifting attempts will be in 2.5kg jumps (5lb jumps in 2021 SMWC).
  • Grip shirts are allowed. However, they must be worn underneath the competition supplied shirt. The competition shirt must be worn during all lifts.
  • Athletes that qualify in multiple categories. Due to wanting to have all athletes perform at their optimum levels and have a fair competition, we will not allow competitors to compete across two separate classes.
