Nobody took it so I went ahead and did it. I weighed 233 this morning which would be 466 for double bodyweight. I did 490x5.


New challenge will be easier so hopefully we get a taker. Powerclean bodyweight for three reps.

Well, if my power clean form wasn't utterly retarded, I might give that a go. Could possibly do that weight, for a few reps. But yeah, form is teh suck. Might indeed be courting injury. Eff that...

Hopefully one of the few sort-of-oly lifters around here will see this challenge and do it.


edit: Er, or strongmen, duh.

Nobody took this so I thought I'd give this a go....

100kg x3, bodyweight today was 99kg......

I haven't cleaned in about 3 years properly, so I know the form is rubbish - do we disqualify for terrible form?

Don't know how to embed the video so how about:
Video here :~)

If not, how about 2x bodyweight deadlift x7 ?
