So with 29 venues running this epic Strongman push/pull and around 300 athletes participating we had some incredible numbers lifted.
Team Cerberus was well represented and left their mark on the competition. In the Men's U80 we had the top 2 athletes from around the globe with Patrick "Canon" Castelli Hitting a conservative 122.5kg log and a 330 kg deadlift giving him a Monster total of 452.5kg's!

We then had Carl Sherry claiming top spot with a new Australian U80 record133kg log & a 346kg deadlift combining for a 479kg Monster total!
In the Men's Open we had big coco hit a 165 log opener & finally hit a 400kg deadlift! This gave Coco a 565 total & 5th overall.
Today at the Gold Coast Static Monsters, I reached one of my long awaited goals, a 400kg Axle Deadlift for a 565kg total (+15kg from last year). . I unfortunately did not reach my second goal with my log press and I’m left with mixed feelings about it and today. . But for now I will leave it at that and focus on a well deserved rest period and coming back even stronger next year. . Thank you and congratulations to my Coco’s crew for all their support and hard work today, I am a very proud coach. . @cerberus_strength_australia @nutritionwarehouse @thepastryemporium @static_monsters
We then had "Big Bad Santa" Albie Mushaney who finished 11th in the Open & won the Masters with a 145.5 log & a 370.5 deadlift for a 516 Monster total!
The crowning achievementof my day at the @static_monsters show in Fairbanks Alaska. Opened with a 735 then took 775 then I made the call for 815. I've never shook during a lift in my life so it startled me a little bit at first. But I knew if a could get it off the ground I could lock it out. I've met some really great people this weekend and now officially love Alaska. Thank you to @cerberus_strength_usa for the figure 8 straps because this wouldn't have happened without them. Thank you to @beardilizer for making my beard s huge hit up here. I drank @youwiinsports all day to make this happen. Thank you to @teamalphastarr for help with the diet. I'm only going to get leaner and stronger because of @angelstarr_ifbbpro #staticmonsters #axledeadlift #iwanttogotoaustralia #worldsstrongestsanta #jackedsanta #DefeatDestroyDevour
In the Womens we had Lightweight strongwomen Lauren Ashleigh hit some impressive numbers with a 77.5kg log & a 210 kg deadlift for a 287.5 monster total!
This was the first event I failed in when I started dabbling in Strongman July 2016... couldn't get 40kg above my head to save my self. I'm stoked to hit 77.5kg this weekend on my second lift and know that's not my limit. In hindsight I should of gone to 80kg for my third lift.... but that's not how I work. My last attempts are usually saved for something I am at a 50/50 chance of getting as I like to know how close I am to success in competition conditions....I got the 85kg up to just above my head with no lockout, so now I work on making that a second lift next run.....and possibly learning not to strict press or bicep curl....maybe 😂🤔 Need to really be channelling the pro Cerberus Team mates of mine @cerberus_strength_australia....this is their event for days! @carlsherry @katemitchellparker @coco_strongman . #loglift #axledeadlift #maxaxle #maxlog #logpress #staticmonsters #monstertotal #staticmasters #staticstrength #strongwoman #strongman #australianstrongmanalliance #adaptivestrongman #strongmangoldcoast #cocosgym #startingstrongman #usa #nz #uk #brunei #canada #australia #southafrica #Philippines #hongkong #sweden #india #Malaysia
In the Women's middle weight division we had Kate Mitchell-Parker dominate with a huge 102.5kg Log for a new WR and a 242.5kg deadlift, finishing in 1st place with a 345kg Monster total!
102.5kg/225lbs log clean and press 💪 at @static_monsters today 😃 Such a great event to be part of and so happy to get triple digits in a competition 💗 I was super nervous for this event but having the best crowd made it fun! Extra special thanks to @lftngurl for being my support person today 💗 First time using @cerberus_strength_australia knee sleeves and elbow sleeves and I give them a 10/10. Felt comfortable and safe while lifting 👌 Thank you team @cerberus_strength for helping me get this lift 😍 #strongmantraining #staticmonsters #logpress #powerlifting #nexusperformance #cerberusaustralia #cerberusstrengthaustralia #teamcerberus #strongwomen
