I have had a goal that pops in and out of my training every once and a while for the last few years: 100 body weight back squats in one set. I started training for it again recently and hopefully this time I will actually attempt it, and even more hopefully complete it. Here is the beginning-
We really need another forum for this stuff, cause I don’t see how it is strength sport related …it is interesting to some, and a challenge, yes, but how that fits into strength sport ???
There is a rather famous shot putter (still competing ) who in High School - or college, squatted 100kgs for 82 reps. If you still want huge reps go for it, but put some weight on the bar,
How can I get huge reps with “weight on the bar” I mean I guess I could just be stronger if it were that easy.
What is the definition of a strength sport by the way?
you are caught up in this world of metcom, …strength sports are by definition “strength sports”, they are not endurance based, they are sports for the stronger athlete not the weaker, they are for people who make sacrifices to maximise their physical strength and how to express it, they are not for self flagelating masochists who beleive exercise is not worthwhile unless they “hurt” afterwards…
I fell better now…
Honestly I really don’t know if I understand you definition of strength sports. I got the idea of this challenge from www.marundemuscle.com which I’m guessing is a site devoted to strength sports. I don’t know if I really want to get involved wth another debate right now. I think that endurance has a great deal to do with strength. I.e. the plane pull in WSM. Maybe you do not define that as endurance, eventhough they are continuing to do work for an extended period of time. That is fine if want to call that strength and strength only. I have a different opinion though. Good luck getting strong.
