А почему нельзя провести отборочный турнир на любительский Арнольд в конце февраля например в Москве с такими-же упражнениями и первые трое призеров поехали бы в штаты?

Event One: Apollon's Wheels—Friday—2:30 to 3:30—Expo Stage—Immediately After the First Mighty Mitts Event
This event requires the competitors to lift the 187 kilo (415 pound) non-revolving barbell from the floor to the shoulders and then overhead for as many complete repetitions as possible.  Those who “clean” the Wheels will win in the case of a tie with a man who uses two or more movements to lift the bar from the floor to the shoulders.  Also, if two or more men do the same number of complete repetitions the “win” will go to the man who gets the Wheels to his shoulders for another rep even if he fails to lift them overhead.  Also, if two men shoulder the same weight but fail to lift it overhead the tie would be broken if one of the men “cleaned” the weight and the other used the “continental” style involving two or more movements.
Time Limit: To expedite the Wheels event, the clock will start from the time a lifter’s name is called and NOT from the time that the lifter touches the bar.  Each man will have 90 Seconds for his “Maximum Reps” attempt.  Please be near the platform when your turn is coming so you will be ready when your name is called.
(The Apollon's Wheels are named in honor of the legendary French professional strongman Louis “Apollon” Uni, who many believe was the first man to lift the unwieldy set of narrow-gauge railway wheels from the floor to overhead over 100 years ago.)
Best Performances:  
 Zydrunas Savickas: 8 continentals (two [or more] part movement to get bar to chest) and 8 overhead lifts, 2006 & 2007;
 Zydrunas Savickas, 459 pounds for two repetitions in 2010, when we used a “rising bar” format.
 Mikhail Koklyaev: 7 cleans (one movement to get bar to chest) and 7 jerks, 2009

Event Two: The Deadlift—Friday—3:30 to 4:30—Expo Stage
The tires on a new Hummer weigh approximately 100 pounds (45 kg) each, and the lightest weight available to our competitors will be a bit over 600 pounds (270 kg).  By adding barbell plates and additional tires, we can increase the weight of the bar in increments of between ten and twenty pounds (five and ten kg) so the competitors can take what they want as the weight on the bar goes up.  Each man will have three attempts, and we will use the "round" system, in which the lightest first attempt will be done first, followed by the next heaviest, and so on.  When each man has made one attempt, the bar will be lowered and the second attempts will be done as the first were done—with the weight on the bar rising.  This procedure will probably be repeated on the third attempt.  The bar is almost 14 feet (4.26 meters) in length, and the handle of the bar is 1 3/8" (35.5 millimeters) in diameter.  It weighs approximately 150 pounds (68 kg).  We will stage the event so that the height of the bar will be between an inch and two inches (50 millimeters) higher off the floor than it is when plates of 20 kg or 45 pounds are used.  
Lifting Straps will be allowed, but greasing or oiling the thighs is prohibited.  Belts may also be used—but only one leather belt.  The bar can be hitched, stopped, and even lowered so long as it is brought to the correct finished position at the conclusion of the lift—legs and body must be straight and the shoulders must be in line with the sides of the body.  Please note:  the bar cannot be raised and then dropped and bounced to gain momentum.
Time Limit: Lifters will have 60 seconds from the time their name has been called and the whistle has blown to begin their pull on the deadlift bar.  If they have not begun to lift the bar within the sixty second time limit they forfeit the attempt. Please be ready on the sidelines when your turn is coming so you will have time to get to the bar and begin your lift.  
After completing an attempt, the competitor will have 60 seconds to tell the expediter what he wants for his next weight. Failure to do so will result in the lifter being given the next available increase in weight.  The expediter will use a stop-watch.  No changes in the weight may be made after the expediter has recorded the weight, except on the third attempt in which each lifter is allowed to make one upward change as long as his name has not been called.    
Best Performance Inside Competition:
 471.8 kg/1038 lbs: Benedikt Magnusson & Oleksandr Pekanov, 2008
Best Performances Outside Competition on 4th Attempt:
 Benedikt Magnusson, 500 kg/1102.3 lbs, 2008

Event #3—The Manhood Stones—Saturday—2:15-2:45—Expo Stage; Immediately Following the First Mighty Mitts Event
We will use two round stones, and will begin with the heaviest stone (approximately 243 kg or 535 pounds, which will be a record).  All men can try to lift the stone over a bar no higher than 125 cm or 49" (same for both stones) as many times as possible in 60 seconds.  If a competitor does not want to try the heavy stone, he can go to the second stone  (approximately 205 kg or 452 pounds) and lift it as many times as possible in 60 seconds.  Both of the stones will be approximately 50 cm or 20.5" in diameter.  
Anyone who can lift the heaviest stone over the bar will not need to lift the smaller stone because one rep with the heavy stone will beat any number of reps with the second stone.  Also, and for the same reason, anyone who either cannot lift the heaviest stone over the bar (or who decides to wait for the second stone) should lift the second stone over the bar as many times as possible.  Anyone who cannot put the second stone over the bar will either receive, or split, the points for last place.   Example: if three men failed to lift the light stone than the points that would normally be assigned to places 8, 9, and 10   (3 2 & 1 points) will be averaged—which means that each man gets 2 points for the event.
Time Limit: Competitors will have 90 seconds from the time their name is announced and the whistle has blown to put the stone over the bar for as many reps as possible in 60 seconds.  Please be ready as soon as the man ahead of you finishes.  
Best Performance:
 533 pounds (242 kg.) for three reps in 52 seconds—Brian Shaw in 2010
Event Four: The Timber Carry—With Approximately 1050 Pounds (477 Kilos)—2:45-3:45—Expo Center  
The weight of the apparatus was dramatically increased last year by adding more timbers, and it weighed approximately 1003 pounds (450 kg).  This year we added to the weight again because most of our competitors performed so well last year.  It is the heaviest Farmer’s Walk ever done in a major competition, even on a flat surface, and our event requires the men to carry it up the same ramp we have used in past ASC contests.  The apparatus is constructed of 8" x 8" (203 millimeters x 203 millimeters) barn timbers bolted together so that they form a rigid unit.  The competitor stands inside the apparatus on a 4' x 8' (1.21 meter x 2.42 meter) piece of plywood, grips the two 1 ¼" (31.75 millimeter) diameter handles (set 30” [762 millimeters] apart) in a suitcase or "hammer" grip (palms facing palms), lifts the apparatus, and walks up a ramp with a grade of approximately 1" (25 millimeter) rise per foot (305 millimeters).  The ramp is 32' (9.75 meters) long, and it will have a plywood top, with a 4'x6' (1.22 meter x 1.82 meter) platform at the end of the ramp.  The competitors will earn their placing based on how quickly they manage to reach the top platform, or how far they can carry the load up the ramp in the 30 second time limit.  The apparatus can be put down and picked up again, and the athletes will be allowed to use straps.  Chalk will be provided, but no other gripping substance may be used on the hands.  Although the apparatus may bump the ramp from time to time, it may not be dragged or slid forward on the surface of the ramp or platform.  We have cut out a part of the wood at ground level in both the front and the back part of the apparatus.  This should prevent the possibility of the apparatus falling on either the athletes’ toes or heels.  
Time Limit: Each lifter will be given 60 seconds from the time his name has been called to step inside the timber frame, attach his straps to the bar and, if he wants to do so, raise the frame off the blocks in order to determine if he has balanced the timber frame properly (This is strongly recommended.).  Once the lifter is strapped on and ready to go he will nod to the referee, who will blow a whistle to start the 30-second clock.  
Best Performances:
 Andrus Murumets, 6.87 seconds, 2007, carrying 875 pounds with no straps
 Derek Poundstone, 9.28 seconds, carrying 1003 pounds with straps in 2010.

Event Five: The Circus Dumbbell—242 Pounds (110 Kilos)—Saturday Night at Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium—Approximately 9:30 PM

Once again, we will use a large, partly hollow dumbbell made by Richard Sorin, which looks like the circus weights used by professional strongmen 100 years ago.  This year the weight of the bell has been increased by over 15 pounds because we want this event—and all others—to focus on strength rather than endurance. The Circus Dumbbell in 2011 will weigh approximately 242 pounds (110 kg).  The handle is three inches thick (much larger than the handle of the “Inch Dumbbell”), approximately as thick as a normal can of Coke.  We use this large, Circus Dumbbell because it looks much better for the live audience and also for television.  It is also much harder to lift overhead with one hand than a solid, smaller dumbbell of the same weight would be.  
You may use any method you want to lift the Dumbbell to the shoulder, but the easiest way is to use both hands.  If you plan to lift the Dumbbell overhead with your right hand first, you will lift it to your shoulder with both hands, and then remove your left hand from the Dumbbell.  Then, using only your right hand and arm, you will lift the weight over your head and control it until the judge says, "Down."  At that point you replace the bell on the platform and then try to lift it to your shoulder and over your head again.  You may use any technique to lift the weight from the shoulder to arm's length—a press, a side press, a push press, a push jerk, a jerk, or even a bent press—as long as you finish with your feet more or less on line, your body more or less upright, and your lifting arm fully extended.  Then, if you want, you may use your left hand to help you bring the Dumbbell down to your right shoulder and then on down below your waist.  Then—without waiting for a signal from the judge—you will once again pull the bell to your shoulder with two hands, release the bell with one hand, and then lift it over your head again.  You must lower the bell below your waist on every repetition.  You can place it on the floor between every repetition if you like.  Lowering the bell below your waist on every repetition makes the event a better overall test of strength and easier to judge.
We will allow the athletes to begin with either hand and then do as many repetitions as they want to do before they switch to the other hand. This means, for example, that if an athlete can do more than three repetitions with his "starting hand" he can do more than three before switching if he wants to do more.  He can also switch to his other hand after doing only one or two reps. The athlete can also go back and forth from one hand to the other as many times as he likes, within the 90 second time limit.  We will add the total number of successful reps with the right hand to the number of reps with the left hand and ranking will be based on the total number of successful reps.  As before, the athlete will be allowed to use both hands to lower the dumbbell to the shoulder after each repetition.  The athlete may also drop the weight to the floor from arm’s length if he prefers.
Time Limit: Competitors will 1.5 minutes (90 seconds) from the time their name is announced and the whistle has blown to lift the Bell from the floor to overhead as many repetitions as possible.  Please be ready to go as soon as the man ahead of you finishes.  
Best Performance:
15 repetitions with 202 pounds—Derek Poundstone in 2009
11 repetitions with 227 pounds—Derek Poundstone in 2010

Additional Regulations
Costume: No supportive suits, briefs, or support shirts of any sort are permitted in the Arnold Strongman Classic.  Wrist-wraps may be used on the wrists and knee-wraps may be used on the knees but not on the elbows.  Elbow sleeves are allowed but we prefer that you lift without them.  You will be provided with t-shirts and tank-tops from our sponsor and these must be worn when on-stage, except during the Manhood Stones when you may wear no shirt if you so prefer.  You should bring your own shoes.  Please remember that you cannot wear any logos other than those of our sponsors during the contest.  
Scoring:  Points in each event are assigned on a 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 scale, unless there is a tie.  In the event of a tie, the two (or more) men involved will split the corresponding points and/or prize money as described in the following example:
Example:  At this year’s contest, one man makes 6 lifts with the Circus Dumbbell, one man makes 5, one man makes 4, two men make 3, two men make 2, two men make one, and one man makes none.  
The man who made 6 wins the event and will receive 10 points. The man in second place, who made 5, gets 9 points.   The third place finisher, who made 4 lifts, gets 8 points.  The two men who made 3 lifts will get 6.5 points (7 points for 4th place + 6 points for fifth place, divided by two). The next two men, who finished in a tie for sixth place, will get 4.5 points (splitting the 5 points of 6th place added to the 4 points of fifth place, divided by two).  The two men who made one good lift will split the points assigned for eighth (three points) and ninth (two points), and each will receive 2.5 points. The tenth man, who made none, receives one point—as long as he attempted the lift. If, in the opinion of the officials, a man fails to make a bona fide attempt to lift the weight he will not receive any points.   No other considerations will be factored into the breaking of ties.
In the case of a tie for first place at the end of the contest:   the men who have tied will attempt to lift an Inch Dumbbell replica (172 pounds [78 kg] with a handle 2.47" [62.7 mm.] in diameter) as high as possible with one hand, in one movement, without touching any other part of the body to gain an advantage, in the judgment of the officials. Chalk only.

MITTS 2011
Rules and Event  Information

  In 2011, in addition to the Arnold Strongman Classic's traditional tests of total body strength, we will continue a new feature for the crowds at the Expo Center.  This feature, "Mighty Mitts," is also supported by MHP, our main sponsor, and it will not involve our Strongman competitors.  Instead, it will showcase between nine and ten men who are widely known for the strength of their hands.  These men will face four challenges and can win prizes which will be greater than those awarded last year.  (Negotiations are continuing which we hope will allow us to boost the prize-money substantially and we will release the prize list as soon as possible.)  These challenges will take place on the Expo Stage on Friday and Saturday immediately before and after our Strongman events, as was done last year.  

In the 2011 Mighty Mitts, the one-and-only Dennis Rogers—a true Grandmaster of Grip—will handle the announcing duties.  Rogers will also give a short demonstration of his hand and wrist strength prior to our time on stage on both Friday and Saturday.

The Mighty Mitts Challenges for 2011

1. The Jowett Anvil--In the early years of the 20th century, George F. Jowett was a very prominent figure in the physical culture world as a writer, lifter, and promoter.  One of the stunts for which he is most famous featured a large blacksmith's anvil, which he supposedly gripped by the horn with one hand, swung up toward his shoulder, flipped so that he caught it upside down in his hand, and then pressed over his head.  Jowett claimed to be the only man who could perform this feat.  However, leading strength historians are in agreement that Jowett--who was also famous for his exaggerations--never made such a lift. In any case, Jowett's own anvil will be used in the challenge. It weighs approximately 173 pounds (78 kg).

The Jowett Anvil must be carried to the side of the body and not between the legs.  The anvil will be lifted by the horn from the floor and carried on a rubberized mat along the front edge of the Expo Stage from one end of the stage to the other, if possible.  If an athlete carries the anvil the length of the stage he will loop around an orange cone made of heavy rubber and then carry the anvil back toward an identical cone at the beginning point of the event…and so on until the anvil drops.  A loadable implement and other warm-up implements will be available backstage before the event.   Only chalk will be allowed for this challenge and for all others  Hands may be checked at any time in this and all other MM events.
Best Performance in 2010: Rich Williams:  38’ 7.5”

2. Sorin's Monster--Richard Sorin, founder and owner of the Sorinex Equipment Company and himself one of the legends of hand strength, designed and had built a huge, circus-type barbell weighing 500 pounds, featuring spheres which are 25” in diameter and a bar two inches in diameter.  The bar will not rotate within the spheres in any way.  The challenge will be to deadlift the bar for as many repetitions as possible within 30 seconds using a double-overhand (pronated) grip.  Sumo and traditional deadlifting styles are both permitted and the bell may be "hitched" on the way up as long as the lifter is standing straight at the end of the lift.  The barbell will have to touch the platform on every rep after the referee has given the "Down" signal, and a "hook grip" will not be allowed.  After the referee gives the down signal on each rep the lifter may either drop the bell, re-grip, and try to make another rep or he may lower it after getting the down signal, touch the floor, and pull it right back up again. The most reps, plus the height on the first failed attempt, wins and determines placings.

Best Performance in 2010: Rich Williams:  8 repetitions

3. The Inch Dumbbell--Named in honor of the English strongman and weightlifter Thomas Inch, the original Inch Dumbbell weighs 172 pounds and has a handle almost 2.5" in diameter and 4” in length.  The bell was made approximately 100 years ago, and for many years very few men were able to lift it off the floor.  Once replicas of the original implement began to be manufactured, however, a number of men trained until they could deadlift one.  A few men have been able to deadlift two Inch Bells and walk a short distance with them, and last year the challenge at the Mighty Mitts event was to do exactly that--to deadlift two Inch Bells with the dumbbell handles remaining approximately parallel to the platform throughout the deadlift portion of the feat, and attempt to walk as far as possible.  This year, however, the competitors will be asked to deadlift one Inch DB with the handles parallel to the floor and then to walk across the front of the 50' Expo Stage, go around a large, solid marker, then go back the other way without dropping the bell, and then repeat the process. When the competitor drops the bell, it will be replaced by a spotter at the spot where it fell and the competitor will then deadlift it with his other hand in the same manner as before and continue on the course for as far as possible.  The total distance for each competitor will be marked at the place where the second dumbbell hits the floor.  Competitors will not be allowed to hold the dumbbell tightly against their waists, thighs, or hips during the attempt.

Best Performance in 2010, carrying two dumbbells, Rich Williams:  76’ 4”


4.  The Pinch Pull—This is a new event and it will require the competitors to grasp a piece of square metal tubing (4” on each side) attached to a strap or chain which will be attached to a weighted sled.  The weight on the sled will be determined after we have done pre-event testing on the platform at the Expo Center in Columbus.  Each man will attempt to pull the sled from one corner of the stage to the other (diagonally) as far as possible.  Competitors may stop and rest, and one drop is permitted.  If more than one person carries it the full distance (approximately 45 feet), placings will be determined by speed.  One minute time limit   A video will be sent out to each MM competitor within a week showing how the Pinch Pull will be done.  Chalk only.
_________________

The Mark Henry Bell--a dumbbell, with a handle 2.5" thick and 6" long, which weigh 300 pounds, was used last year as an event, but no one was able to lift it out of its box.  This year it will not be one of our events, but at some point during the weekend it will be available to any contestant in either the Arnold Strongman Classic or Mighty Mitts who wants to try to lift it under official conditions.  If anyone is able to lift it out of its box a special prize of some sort will be awarded.  After the dumbbell was made, we called it the "Mistake Bell" because it was supposed to weigh only 250 pounds, but Mark decided to leave it as it was so that it would remain as a challenge for everyone, including himself.  Shortly after the Henry Bell was made, a small but heavy box (50 pounds) was built for it so that it would be easier to carry, and the challenge is to lift the bell all the way out of its box with one hand without tipping the box over.  At the end of a successful attempt the Bell will be resting on the platform and the box will be upright.  During any attempt to lift the Bell out of the box, the lifter may not touch the box with either of their legs or feet in order to “brace” the box.  We know that a man will come along one day who will be successful with this colossal implement, and we intend to bring it to Columbus every year until someone does.  .

We believe that the Grip Giants who have been selected so far to take part in 2011 are among the greatest in the world and we hope and expect that world records will be broken in some of the Mighty Mitts events.  The contestants are, alphabetically:


1. Andrew Durniat
2. Mark Felix, ASC Alternate
3. Wade Gillingham
4. Odd Haugen
5. Tex Henderson
6. Jedd Johnson
7. Ross Love
8. Chad Waddell
9. Rich Williams

  
Jim Lorimer refers to the Arnold Sports Festival as "Strength Heaven," and the introduction of these unprecedented grip challenges in 2010 has added a new attraction to the festival--an attraction which has already caused the sport to grow.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR MIGHTY MITTS COMPETITORS

Organizational Meeting Friday at 12:30:  The Arnold Strongman Classic (ASC) and Mighty Mitts (MM) will have the stage from 2:00 to 5:00 on Friday and from 145 to 4:45 on Saturday.  We need to have a pre-contest meeting on Friday to draw lots, discuss the events and distribute shirts.    All MM contestants and officials  should come to the main stage at the Expo Center at 12:30 P.M. for this meeting.  Please look for Terry Todd on the left side of the stage—as you face the stage from where the audience sits.  

Uniforms: Please send your t-shirt size to Jan Todd at jan@starkcenter.org if you have not already done so.  Shirts will be provided for all contestants. Please remember that no logos other than MHP may be worn on stage.

Rules Questions:  Please address any questions about rules and performance to Terry Todd via email at terry@starkcenter.org.    

Expo Center Access for Competitors:  In a later email, we’ll provide details about how and where to get your badges, as well as other details that should help make the weekend easier for you and your coaches, family, and friends.  


Final Thoughts About Mighty Mitts
I want to thank all of you, again, and especially Richard and Bert Sorin, for helping me work through the second edition of what has apparently become an annual gathering of Grip Giants on the big stage in Columbus—as I’d hoped it would.  My aim, ever since I conceived the contest, has been to do my best to gather expert advice and to think through how these four events should be conducted.  Last year our competitors—most of whom are returning for 2011--worked very hard, together, to make MM a truly exciting contest to watch.  We continue to believe that it will sell itself in the years to come so we can move forward in terms of helping with expenses and increasing the prize package.  So far, so good, and I hope to be able to announce a substantially increased prize package within the next week or two.
For history buffs, the origin of the title of the contest is that 46 years ago I wrote a two-part article in Strength and Health magazine when I was a managing editor of the magazine.  The title of the article?  “Mighty Mitts.”

Встречный вопрос - А поездку "первых троих призеров" кто спонсировать будет?
Друзья, родственники, спонсоры и т.п. А какая сумма нужна?
Если хочешь узнать насколько Человек силен - посмотри выступления Стронгмэнов!
Если хочешь узнать насколько Человек слаб - попробуй это на себе!

Друзья, родственники, спонсоры и т.п. А какая сумма нужна?
А друзья и родственники могут и  так проспонсировать, без отборочных. Дион проводит любительский арнольд, и по согласованию с ФСЭР на него можно заявиться, были бы средства, а средства очень большие необходимы.

На любителей едет кто от России? У нас планируется 4 участника, как будет - время покажет. А любительский не такой и простой, так что, если преследовать цель опыт - то неизвестно, что лучше Классик или Аматор, если престиж и призовые то понятно, что Классик.

Разенков прав.Только надо бы поправочку сделать для участников отбора,кто сможет в случае поБеды оплатить свою поездку в Штаты,ну и какое-нибудь документальное подтверждение,скажем тысяч сто на счёте,чтобы в просак федерация не попала.Мне кажется так было бы справедливо.Я бы поучавствовал.
Достич результатов Михаила тяжело,Клюшев,Калиниченко,Глушко и другие сильные парни видимо по финансовой причине не едут,или может статус любителей не устраивает,не важно.Ну а когда ещё может такая возможность представиться к самому дяде Арнольду съездить?Он хоть и железный Арни,но вряд ли вечный,да и неизвестно сколько мы простые человеческие особи проживём.
Не хочу ничего сказать против парней,которые поехали,желаю им удачи и победы!
Может на следующий год,если федерация изменит свою позицию в этом вопросе.

Вы что издеваетесь?
Какую позицию должна изменить Федерация????
Русскими буквами пишу (повторяю): На любительский Арнольд может заявиться любой желающий имеющий необходимый уровень подготовки (отсюда и согласование с ФСЭР, так как в России Дион Веселс работает только с ФСЭР) и финансовую возможность.

Доброго времени суток!!!
Последние новости Паундстоун и Сайдерс снялись с Арнольда. Вместо Паундстоуна будет выступать Марк Феликс, а вместо Сайдерса наверное никто не будет,
потому что только один участник был заявлен как запасной. Скорейшего выздоровления атлетам.

Удачи и всяческой прухи Кокляю. Шансы на попадание в тройку у Миши очень хорошие.
Феликс и Бест -- пенсионеры (еще очень бодрые но не во всех упражнениях),
Холандс с надорванным бицепсом,
Романенко малоопытен,
Ортмайер в этом году слишком худой,
Дженкинс вообще зеленый, пороху не нюхал и склонен к травмам

Думаю, что основная борьба будет межу Савицкасом и Шоу, а Миша с хорошим отрывом по-гроссмейстерски спокойно (как на Мире) возьмет третье место.

Большой железный привет, Лев

Выступать надо не на отборочном, наспех слепленом специально под Арнольд.
Выступать надо на протяжении всего года. Никакие специальные отборочные тут не нужны, тут весь год - отборочный.
И тогда, в предверии Арнольда, список из всех желающих от России, с результатами выступлений за год и силовыми показателями, предоставляется Федеоацией - Дион Веселс. Двадцать человек, достойных поездки на Арнольд, у нас не наберется. К примеру такие атлеты как Калиниченко, Глушко - на любительский Арнольд не допускаются. Они не попадают под категорию любителей.  Приглашение выступать на Арнольде получат самые достойные атлеты из представленного списка многочисленных желающих. Резюмируем (как сказал Лёша, пишу крупно и односложно:D/>): По согласованию с Федерацией, выступить на Арнольде может любой желающий, имеющий необходимый уровень (соответствующий столь крупному турниру) подготовки, и финансовую возможность.
Улыбаемся и пляшем!
