Table updated.

If you call climbing up from the very bottom of the table one by one until you get stuck at place 17 a "win", then, yes, it is.

Sosso got my meaning and the exact spirit of the challenge.

By the way, where are your numbers?

Mr Skinny, you should be able to do at least 20 at 102.5kg. :twisted:

BW: 99,8kg

Just did 14 reps with 100kg. There is definitely more in the legs, but I got out of breath.

32 reps is my new target. (the last builders bar I ate had an unusually large amount of crack in it)

Yeah, I got a lump in my throat when I realised my other goal will be to get to 105kg.
I think a better challenge would be how much weight can you rep 10 times. Surely its dangerous to do more than 10 squats?
