Workout Weekly Challenge (2)

Hey guys,

I really liked the idea RRxtar had years ago, and later taken up by Berzerker, to have a weekly fitness challenge.

Every week I'll try to put up a new challenge, the idea is to inspire people to try something new and push eachother! Most likely they will be basic movements or simple variations. However, I am definitely interested in including suggestions from everyone! Hopefully we can balance out the challenges for big and small guys alike.

It will be entirely for fun and bragging rights. Posting a video with your score isn't necessary, however, it is preferred!

Let's start it off by what I believe was the most popular challenge from the original thread!!!


Week 1: Sunday September 27 - Sunday October 4

Challenge: SQUATS (*with your body weight worth of weight, including the bar). as many as you can in a row

  • Do as many full squats as you can in a row without stopping.
  • The bar must stay on your back during attempt, no re-racking the weight
  • Must go to below parallel or deeper (ATG).
Why?: The squat is the king of all exercises!

*eg. if you weigh 170lbs. bar (45) + 45x2 (90) + 10x2 (20) + 5x2 (10) +2.5x2 (5) = 170lbs

(There are metric tons of videos on how to squat.. I chose one)

Post up your body weight, along with your result for comparison too

This is strictly for fun, so use your own honor and don't cheat.

Nerded out a bit the other day on the old thread, thinking about future challenges etc...

I'd love to have your guys input and to give some context/ideas here is a list of previous challenges:
  1. Pull ups for reps (Pronated grip)
  2. Bodyweight squats for reps
  3. Bodyweight bench press for reps
  4. 1/2 bodyweight military press for reps
  5. 1/2 bodyweight dumbbell hold for time
  6. Weak arm dumbbell row for reps
  7. Wide grip pull ups for reps
  8. Dips for reps
  9. Chin ups for reps (Supinated grip)
  10. Bodyweight dumbbell bench press for reps
  11. Dead hang from pullup bar for time
  12. 1/2 bodyweight seated military press for reps

Some ideas I've had:
  • Push ups for reps
  • Handstand for time (mod; feet against wall)
  • Deadlift for reps (This is tricky.. was thinking 1.5 bodyweight)
  • Situps in a minute
  • Burpees in a set amount of time
  • 3/4 bodyweight lunges for reps
  • Max Box jump (could be an issue in terms of access to equipment)
  • Vertical jump
  • KB Farmer carry
  • 1RepMax bench/deadlift/backsquat using sinclair or other indexing formula
  • Rowing for time
