if hindu squats count for bodyweight squats, then 120 is my PB, although I can do more I'm sure if it's a contest.

<edit> i'm an idiot, forget the above

Nice entry on rank 4, I'm sure you can improve on that :D

JP, what is your response?

Ninearms?
Ephedrin?
Ralst?

Where are you guys?


I don't do high reps. If I want to be out of breath and nauseous I'll go for a run after my dinner.

I just realized I am at the bottom of the table. This is not acceptable, something has to be done.

Can I pull out of the competition and be removed from the table please :D ?

I have answered the call. 10 reps with bodyweight - wanted to stop after five, but I had to beat BGW :D Next to fall is JP...

I'd like to think of myself as a powerlifter... I am not there yet :D
I also want to keep a balance between strength and endurance training. I can't run for shit but I try to improve on whatever results I have aquired by performing low weight squats, push ups(descending reps ), chins, BW benchpress for reps. I do this also to entice other members to do the same (with moderate success).
I am getting older and despite my refusing to accept the inevitable advent of decrepitude, I am starting to feel the aches and pains that many promised me already 15 years ago.
So I am not sure I am going to be able to improve on the 33 reps..... but I'll try. I will appreciate any encouragement. :!:

50x50 kilos, 20xbodyweight. the latter on has plenty of room left, but i'll save it for when my back rebuilds itself.
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.

I finished 50 reps of 165 pounds (75Kg) tonight.
Lots of gasping after 30, about 5 gasps per rep.

Yes, but i didn't count it because it didn't push JP further down the table ;)

I just realized that Jemmy the Duck is in top spot! :shock:
I will pull myself together next week and make a PB!
With my new bodyweight... 5kgs more... :?

I didn't see this challenge on VBB, I think I will give it another shot one day. Once did 100 reps with 60kg, was trying to see how many reps I could do in 3 minutes and just kept going. Don't think I could do it again now, but will try again when I get my endurance back up

This is a great challenge!

A couple of months ago I did my bw (70kg) for 15 reps.

I will post some improved numbers soon.
