And it's for exactly that reason that I did record it!

However if i put it up unedited it will be the most boring video you'll ever see

I saw that at IGX. Glad some of you jumped in. Utterly stupid challenge, but it does prove you can lift a few pounds a few times.

I was expecting a killer case of soreness today but apart from a little lower back tightness I'm mostly ok.

The only bummer is the huge chunk i tore off my left hand which is going to make training for my strongman comp next weekend a bit tricky

Good job Don!

i know the challenge is over but i finally had some time (and no workout) to do this and just now finished! this was awesome. i actually feel great, and the only minor setback is one torn piece of skin on my left hand. i set out with a goal to get 60. i got 66! no drops...i don't have a platform and just some thin padding so i have to guide the bar down. i know this pales in comparison to alot of the results, but i'm about as happy with that effort as i can be. i did it without any specifics like 2 on the minute, just pulled when i was ready to pull...can't wait to try more of the challenges.

WAY late to the fun, but had a cancellation tonight that opened up about 45 minutes and this has been in the back of my head. 102 reps, probably could have squeezed a few more out--but not a whole lot more. Good fun! Thanks for throwing this out there Gary.



edit-- no belt, bit of chalk, @ around 175# bw.

There actually was an IGX challenge like this, but few people participated. It was 80% of bodywt for max reps in 30 minutes. Any type of clean was allowed (power, squat, continental, etc.). It was definitely a heart pumper.
