    A competition... FOR HONOR!

    Primal Fuel
    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?

    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!
