Whoa! So much anger. I'm not sure where you're coming from with this.
All I said was
-I know this guy strictly from the gym
-used to be a competitive powerlifter
-still lifts heavy
-some one put the challenge to him and he gave it a go
I didn't ask if anyone thought this would increase my 1rm or anything like that. I was just putting a question to other people that are into powerlifting if they think they could do it. For the challenge of it, nothing more. Kind of like Matt Kroc's 40 rep squat video.
STB, I know you're a strong guy that lifts some big weights but I fail to see how this "ruins strength sports for you." Maybe I missed something. I mean if I had asked "does anyone think they can do Kroc's 40 reps squat workout?" or "Can anybody do Dave Tate's death squat?" Would it still ruin strength sports for you?
There are a handful of videos online of notable names in lifting doing high rep squat challenges. Not necessarily PL workouts but just challenges. I'm not really trying to be an ass here but I'm just not following you.
