    The Mead Hall: The Warrior Water Cooler

    He's likely the best lifter in the world right now, imo. He never deadlifts with a belt for some reason. I got to see him at Boss of Bosses but unfortunately missed him lift at the CETCUS open because ben lifted sunday, not saturday. He's definitely going to be on the top for a while, I bet.

    The Mead Hall: The Warrior Water Cooler

    This meet was an invite meet - top 5 from each weight class according to powerlifting watch (puts all american federations on one single, ranked list) were invited, and anyone from anywhere else in the world could compete if they had a total better than one of the top 5 people on powerlifting watch. 40k prize for each of the 3 divisions (women, lightweight men, heavyweight men) so it was a competition that was the best of the best in the world. (Also, fwiw, not a drug tested meet, but imo that doesn't assume anything, and if they are, it doesn't discount their achievements, in order for that to take you to the next level EVERYTHING ELSE has to be perfect first. I just keep it in mind and don't let myself compare myself to them because it would very hard for me to get to that level as a natural lifter.) The heavyweight man had a 599 wilks, lightweight was 574 wilks. The purpose of wilks is to normalize totals, so a 300lb man can compete against a 90lb woman and you would know who the "stronger" lifter was that day. It does favor the extremely large or extremely small - basically the closer to 160lb you are, the less wilks favors you. But it should be even for men vs. women.

    The Training Yard: Where We Get Our Learn On

    this. bar slamming heavy deads is asking to break things. i personally don't use a deadlift wedge or jack or any of those things, but i'm also not deadlifting more than 4 plates ever so it doesn't get overly difficult to slide on and off.

    And variety too. And appealing towards everyone. There's no way every person will want to do / be happy with every single mini challenge. It's harder than anyone thinks, especially doing these and attempting to having new mini challenges every single challenge. We have been extremely fortunate to have guild leaders in this guild who have put an extreme amount of time setting these challenges up and running them.
