Curious, how close is 315 to your 1RM? Obviously I have to use a much, much lower weight
Amy, women have the annoying ability to pull a greater %age of their 1RM for more reps than guys.

These challenges are good. The push press was a dandy. I just have to figure out where I'm going to fit this in the 531. Probably 1s week.
that is my biggest concern... I may just push this in instead of doing deads in the last week of Feb. As long as that isn't my deload week, if so I'll do it the week before.

I'll film it as well for the hell of it.

What's the push press one?

Over at IGX, we are using 185 for women.
Oh sweet jesus...my 1RM is only 215. I think 185 would be a wee bit much...

Goddamnit - if everyone else is doing this I'm going to have to.

315 is pretty high for me, as my 5RM is about 335 or so. I may drop to about 295 or sack up and go 315 for the pain.

Sack up.

My 1RM for DL right now is probably 380 something as I've been fairly inconsistent the last few months.

Did this today at prescribed weight Got 47 reps. I also had to do the eccentric phase as I have no bumpers at my gym.

The worst immediate result is the damage to my hands. I have a feeling my opinion on that matter will be different tomorrow.

Nice work. I need to do this fairly soon. Having meets every weekend messes doing this up.

89 reps. The challege ends this month, so I did it today.

Doubles on the 30 for first 10 minutes
On the minute, until time was running out and threw in triples until the end.

Hope to never do this again. It was easy, but I think tomorrow will not be pleasant.
