    Seems to be between front squats, bench and deadlifts (even though Chris will pwn us). I'll add a poll and see what happens

    this is cool, double bw deadlift is nice, 450 for reps? touch and go with straps would be nice. i could prob bang out 20.

    that front squat is really cool too.

    The 2x deadlift, would it be touch and go or with a slight pause? Personnally I'd prefer it to be strap-less, chalk only.

    I'm sure I could hit 20; I'm so lean these days I weight nothing and have kept most of my strength.

    Still I'd like a bodyweight power press for reps.

    Power press as in a push press in which you can dip a bit under the bar.

    A push press like this http://exrx.net/WeightExercises/Olym...PushPress.html is more of a military press with a cheating leg drive, while in a power press, it's more about getting as much weight overhead as possible without using much technique such as what is done in the official olympic lifts. In crossfit stuff they call it a push jerk. Maybe I'm not using the correct denomination.

    I voted for bodyweight front squats because I don't think I can deadlift 2x my bodyweight, and I can't bench 225. But after this one we should definately do a pullup competiton.
    Currently:
    age: 15
    height:5'8.5"
    weight: 143
    bench: 185
    squat: 225x15
    Goals by January '08:
    weight: 145-150
    bench: 210
    squat: 250x10

    Any word on when the new competitions are going to happen? I think a lot of people would still be interested even if there weren't prizes.

    I've got the 225 bench down for 13 reps. That's not going to win any contests though

    I'm voting for anything involving power cleans, pull-ups, and double unders. Or metcon stuff in general. Heavy fran competition?

    I think a max weight for pull-ups would be cool. Since you're carrying your bodyweight, it pretty much evens out. And nobody super-specializes in it like the powerlifts or the olympic lifts, so it might be competitive.

    I'd like to see some of you smaller bastards do pullups with a weight that comes out to 270... know what its freaking like to try when I try them. Sometimes I get one... sometimes I get about a half of one.
