Hello good people!
Over the past couple of years I’ve been doing some fun challenges in the training log section with ActivitiesGuy, jblues85 and MaazerSmiit, just to add some fun and variety to our training. We’ve come up with a plan for our next challenge and wanted to open it up to anyone else who might be interested in giving it a go.
Loosely based on a Dan John article the plan is for a 405lb/185kg deadlift single on the minute, every minute, for as long as you can - last man standing wins. We’ll probably aim to do this challenge in around 6-8 weeks time.
Would be great to make this as big as possible, if people are keen!
