  • A competition... FOR HONOR!

    Hey, I just had a fun forum competition idea... who wants to see who can add 20% to their max lifts for bench, squat, and deadlift in the least amount of time? Everyone who wants in can post a video of them pushing their max bench and squat on Monday, November 7 (what with it being that week's international chest day and all) and max deadlift on Wednesday, November 9. First person who adds 20% to their maxes wins... a prize to be determined over the next 2 weeks. Probably the respect and awe of these collected forums. We could even break it out in to 3 contests, 1 for each lift. Who's in?

    I would be up for doing the deadlift portion of it, but don't have a cage to do the other lifts (nor do I do much bench pressing anyways).

      That's biased towards newbies, who can quickly add 20% in a matter of weeks on a linear progression. Someone squatting 100lbs can double that in 7 weeks if they squat 3x a week, add 5lbs every workout. Would take 4 workouts, or less than a week and a half to add 20%.

          Yup. I'd probably make you all my dogs! I bench 25 lbs, LOL, and deadlift 75 lbs. I could own you in a week!
          Aaaand... I mean, how embarassing would that be to get beat by a GIRL?!

            Well I couldn't think of a fair way for everyone to do it unless it's by percentage... any other ideas on how to make it a level playing field?

              first one to deadlift 800 lbs wins?
              beautiful
              yeah you are

              Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
              lol

                I win. I deadlifted 800 lbs earlier this week. Only took 3 reps!

                      Let's go back like three weeks ago when I deadlifted for the first time and do this competition. I only put up like 185x5. Now it's about 315x5 which still sucks but that satisfies the 20%.

                        This may also be an invitation for injury with people pushing beyond their limits(especially beginners). Getting strong and healthy should not be a competition - although competition is good.

                            It's a great idea, I just think the disparity is too great on here. (Adding 20% to my maxes I think would make me the state record holder in my raw weight class, lol.[~1700 total @ either 198 or 220] I'd love to do it in the next 5 years.)

                            On other lifting boards I've posted on before, team competition have been done. If you are serious about, that would be the way to go. Have people submit their profiles and assign teams. (Warning: this is very time consuming and often leads to lots of bitching, sadly. On the bright side, it also leads to lots of PRs).
