Contest: Tweet This. Win Clubbells.

Update: This contest is now closed.

The Prize:

Clubbells! Like Dick Butkus, clubbells are heavy, intense, and beautiful in motion. It’s the one item Grok would keep if he was stranded on a deserted island. I’ve posted about how Primal these things are, and now you get to win the best clubbells ever made. Today’s prize donor is RMAX International. RMAX is more than a provider of equipment, they also provide circular strength training seminars, and they have their own encyclopedia of training videos. The winner of today’s contest will receive a choice of men’s or women’s clubbell starter kit – over a $300 value! As a bonus, if you don’t win but are interested in purchasing your own set of clubbells, if you call RMAX to order and mention my name (Mark Sisson), you will get a 5% discount.

The Contest:

It’s Twitter day at MDA. I sent out the call for a Twitter community back in March, and since then over 2,000 people have joined in. Today’s contest requires you to do three extremely complicated things (note light sarcasm):

  1. Have a Twitter account. If you don’t have one, get one.
  2. Follow me on Twitter.
  3. Tweet (or retweet) this message: “Go #Primal! Retweet this and follow @Mark_Sisson to win a set of clubbells. http://su.pr/1i0jwO”

If you can do all those things, then you’re entered to win. If you don’t know what Twitter is, you don’t know how to follow someone, or you don’t know how to tweet or retweet a message, no sweat. It takes all of 4 minutes to get started. Watch Twitter’s handy intro video here.

Additionally, I’ve decided to run Twitter-exclusive contests after the Primal Challenge ends. Occasionally (and without warning), I will tweet something like this: “The first 5 people to retweet this get a Grok Shirt!” One more layer of fun for the online Primal community.

Special Note: This is NOT me. This IS me. Following this guy will not get you those clubbells.

Eligibility:

This prize is only available to residents of the 48 contiguous states. [If you don’t live in the U.S. and you win, I’ll ship you a bottle of my Master Formula instead, and the clubbells will go to an alternate winner.]. Additionally, the prize will be shipped via UPS, therefore you must have a shipping address that is not a P.O. Box.

The Contest End Time:

Midnight, tonight (August 28)!

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

A random drawing among all entrants who both retweeted the message and are still following me as of 8:00 a.m. PST, August 29th.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. wow- I’ve never heard of clubbells- good grok, I love this site! I truly learn something new every day. Off to tweet!

  2. Indeed very Grok! Sounds like an excellent tool to carry on long slow hikes :)

  3. I have been vehemently opposed to twitter since its inception, and yet I joined. I must really want those clubbells!

    For what it’s worth, I have two home medical books, one from 1908 and one from 1921, and both of them tout the wonderful physical benefits of clubbell exercises and even include pictures of exercises! How cool is that?!

  4. @Deanna,
    That’s pretty cool that 100 years ago, doctors were still promoting some (not all, if you read GCBC)healthy exercises. Maybe it’s because the Treadmill, Ab Rollers and Gazelle Freestyles (aka, crap that doesn’t work) weren’t invented yet.

    @Mark, Eeek! I’m so excited! Following you http://twitter.com/BellaStefanos
