You may be aware Luke has decided to join younger brother Tom and come on board with Silverback. He needs no introduction! We are excited to have Luke and I think anybody in the strength game knows his calibre and with the World's coming up the future is really bright for Luke. We managed to get a quick bio out of him before he heads off to the Philippines next week.

Most memorable comp and why – competing in worlds strongest man with my brother tom. It was a dream for me to be able to compete with Tom in the worlds. It’s the highest level of competition for us. It was also a not long after my mum passed away and I know she would have been incredibly proud of the both of us representing Scotland and the Stoltman name.
Biggest inspiration in life – My mum and dad.
Future ambitions – To retain my Scotland's strongest man title, and gain a final spot at world's strongest man.
Most admired strongman past and present – Eddie Hall and Mariusz Pudzianowski
Your ideal Saturday night – Relaxing in my house with my wife and two dogs watching a movie and eat some nice food.
Favourite cheat meal – Pizza, nandos, Indian Takeaway
Favourite lift – Log press
I believe that the Stoltman name will remain a constant name in strength sports for years to come. We have cemented the Stoltman name in Scottish strength and now its time to branch out and make it a world wide name.
We really do wish Luke all the best next week and make sure you follow his journey on instagram @luke.stoltman for his prep and updates.
You can also catch some of Luke's and Tom's training at the Stoltman Strength Centre on their instagram @stoltmanstrength. A must follow for anybody into Strongman.
We will have a post comp blog with Luke after he returns.
Good Luck Luke - Team Silverback...
