stones and weight, total shitshow
fuck this. there is a minimum strength requirement for HG and I'm not there
This. I have always been on the smaller side for HG, but I'm also stronger than a lot of guys in my weight division. You have no idea how awesome and then sick I felt when I turned the caber and nailed the HW for height only to see much heavier (read fat and slovenly) guys glide those fucking distance throws so far beyond my brute force efforts that I was sick. There was strength there but it was more timing and footwork that did the trick. I realized then that I had a long way to go. Still haven't gotten back to it yet since GS sucked me in, but it's on my list.
What I've garnered from talking with BD and others about this sport: Throw. Throw some more. Then throw some more. Video yourself. See how you fucked up. Correct those. Throw some more.
