what is static monsters?

The Static monsters is a two lift competition comprising of the Log press and the 18 inch axle deadlift.

competitiors enter an opening lift, then upon succesful completion, they enter their next attempt and then a final lift. This is repeated for the axle to give a total of their two heaviest succesful lifts combined.

There are over 25 countries hosting the Static Monsters World Wide this year with hundreds of athletes competing to gain a qualifying spot

the totals are then entered into a world wide ranking so the competitor knows exactly where they stack up against all of the other lifters from around the world.

the top 10 in each weight class then recieve an invitation to the world finals for the chance of becoming the static monsters world champion
