It's December
 
Well it's December and the challenge put forth from Emeka is drawing close.
We didn't schedule a day to do the challenge. I and looking at after Christmas, how does Saturday, December 31,2011? I will get my son to take photos and will post the photos on either facebook or IPYU what ever the majority of the request are.
I am in need of a clarification also. I understand it's 40% of my bodyweight, but is the 100 reps split between the two arms (50/50) ? I didn't train as serious as I should have and I'm feeling I might regret it. We'll see...ya never know. :[][]:

Send me your best dumbell weight you can lift and I'll come within 30 lbs of it in December. Just a little something to get me going again. I need the challenge. Or you can suggest something you like better. I just need the challenge. Look what it did for me before. Thanks.
Oh, I'm not trying to prove anything other than I got the spirit in me to work for it.
You brought out the best in me before, how about another try.

I love it Paw! I'm in. The highest we go with DBs at my gym is 125lbs tho. So i'll go 125lbs for failure and you go, let's say 90s in Dec to failure. I'd like for you to push for half of what ever i rep.

Deal?

I have a challenge for you whenever you want to take it too.

DB row @ 40% of your weight for 100 reps using both arms in 5min.

So I'll be doing 90 lb db's to failure after doing db row's @40% of my body weight. Sounds like a plan. I'll get my son to do the vid or photos.
I can't wait to see results from everyone that does this challenge!

PAPAW 12-15-2011 10:13 AM

We've only just begun to do these challenges, I enjoy the adrinalin (? spelling) rush. Hopefully more will become involved and eventually I'll have one for you. Whatcha think?

PAPAW 12-19-2011 11:05 PM

12 more days and the challenge is ON!!! I'll be resting some that week instead of my regular workout. I plan on videoing this. I may have to do it at my Office with my elcheapo weight set. And I do mean elcheapo.

emekajokammor 12-19-2011 11:16 PM

LEh Go Paw!! 12 days then it on like Donkey Kong!!!!

PAPAW 12-20-2011 08:56 AM

You got it sir, I'm gona do the best I can and pray for strength to fulfill my end of the challenge.
Are there going to be any other's doing the challenge ?

PAPAW 12-31-2011 10:24 PM

Well I made a valient attempt at the challenge. I did 30 reps with the right arm then my son made me finish the 50 with help. I did 24 with the left arm and my son made me finish the 50 with help. I waited a couple of minutes and did 5 or 6 reps @90 lbs. after that I was toast.

PAPAW 01-01-2012 09:34 AM

I'd like to try again, but I'm not sure if I should take the time to train for it instead of training for the competition in June.

PAPAW 01-01-2012 11:38 AM

Thank you sir, it was alot of fun.

PAPAW 01-01-2012 03:25 PM

Thanks Emeka, I still got a ways to go.

onetiredkris 01-02-2012 11:45 PM
