The Tenacious Test of Toughness 2014!


Recommended Posts

Yeah, you guys are awesome. I thought getting to 665 to catch Spezzy on DL was going to be my biggest challenge, but I think the 380 I need to catch Simon on bench is going to be way harder.

I understand the concern about Wilks but everyone should just focus on getting stronger. You'll do more to improve your Wilks by adding plates to the bar then dropping lbs on the scale. In competition Wilks only comes to play if there's a tie within a weight class and when determining an overall "Best Lifter". In almost all cases whomever lifts the most wins.

Yeah, we have fun with Wilks here because we don't deal in weight classes. The only reason to drop weight for most here is to get to a healthy body fat percentage, not Wilks. It's the only reason I'm doing it, to look good naked. Get to a healthy body fat level, then just get stronger.

What's Gainsdalf said.  I'm overweight.  Been on a binge since I completed the Tough Mudder in July when I was ~200lbs.  Now I'm up ~220lbs and I'd wager maybe 5 of those 20 were muscle.  Losing 30 lbs for me won't be hard if I just focus on my diet for a month or two.  And I doubt that it will really affect my numbers.  We'll see though.

Weight classes are far less fun though. There would only be a couple people at each level.

Which is why we don't do them.

what about the snatch champion!?!?!

Read the rules. Comp is for big 3 only. I only allow the Oly lifts out of the kindness of my heart so you won't feel ostracized. :wink:

same situation here. Losing weight is no fun. I like eating all the things.

I'd wager nightlight just wanted to type the phrase "snatch champion".  #DirtyWeightLiftingHumor

Just as an FYI, I'm working on moving these values over into the Lifting Leaderboards.  Squat should be 90% done and I'll get to the other lifts in the next week or so.

 

I don't know who 'Greg', 'Clawed_Bear', or 'Bluecheeze' are.  Everyone else should have their Squat value entered into the Squat Leaderboard.  If anyone can point me to the those member accounts, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!
