it was just something i read on the blackboard they had there. if you weigh 200# you deadlift 200#..
as far as what kind of contest it is, i guess its just a plain old contest to see who can do the most..
they also had previous comtests on reps with 200, 300 400 500. presses contest, pullup contests.. etc. kinda cool in a way. you train to get strong, so why not have in the house contests..
bodyweight contests may not be a lot of weight, but its cool when you do 35 reps and the others that weight the same do 25 reps..just friendly competition i guess.
