Simple rules to start as we move forward. 

- The entire log must clearly start and finish from below knee height. 

- The log must have handles that are between 60 and 80cm wide. (Between 24 inches and 32 inches wide on the handles.) 

- The log must have a diameter of over 22 cm and smaller than 35cm. (This is between 9 inches and 14 inches thick.) 

- The log must get to arms length overhead and elbows and knees locked out for a momentary pause. - No dropping the log behind after the lift or touching the log on top of the head during the lift. 

- Feet must not be moving for the locked out pause overhead and feet must be 'close' to being in line - though it is most important that the knees and elbows are locked at the same time and a pause is achieved at the top. 

- Belts are allowed, but NO obvious usage of the belt loop (protruding) and NO using the buckle at the front to allow resting. No usage of the belt as a shelf is allowed. Belt buckle ideally is pushed to the side or back to avoid doubt. - One leather belt and/or one neoprene under belt allowed. 

- If you have a 'bad lockout' then you must say so beforehand and hold the log for a longer pause at the top to prove you have locked out to the best of your ability 

- Neoprene or Dual-Ply Sleeves and also wrist wraps are allowed. The categories for grading are simple: GRADE A - any lift that has been done under the supervision of a trusted promoter and referee at: - A Giants Live contest - World's Strongest Man 

- The Arnolds or and Arnolds Expo 

- An ASC/NAS contest 

- At the World Log Lifting Challenge or World Log Lifting Championships

 - We will accept a National or International Contest where the promoter's and referee's name's are quoted. But we withhold the right to withdraw this from an A Grading if we feel it can not be fully substantiated. 

- Moving forward this is a lift dine under the rules laid out, videoed and done under the supervision of a trusted OfficialStrongman member on an approved log (we are setting up a list of strongman gyms worldwide and are looking to register logs at each gym to avoid future doubt) so initially need to be weighed in on camera, OR it is lifted in front of and Approved Contest organiser 

- please write in if you would like to run a contest and get members approved for worldwide ranking. GRADE B 

- This is all lifts going forward from now (no historical lifts)and these videos are to be done on a log that has been weighed and witnessed by another OSM member- or if the log is weighed in on camera by a sole person in a home gym GRADE C - All historical lifts that can not be substantiated but have been videoed - all videos going forward that aren't either done on approved logs or contests or in front of other members... but we still want you to upload your best log now no matter when or where it was done.
