    We need some new contests

    The contest forum seems to be pretty dry. Let's get some more contests started!
    My ideas:

    - Double bodyweight deadlift for reps
    - Dips till ya drop
    - Bodyweight front squat for reps
    - Crossfit total
    - Total weight moved in 1 min

    Lets get some other ideas! I'll add them to this post.

    I don't think there would be any prizes involved, so no biggy. Even if there were prizes, who cares? Do exactly as you said

    I think we're ready for a tricep kickbacks contest. Unless it's already been done of course.

    The double-bw dl for reps sound interesting, so does the bodyweight front squat one.

    Power-press bodyweight for reps?

    ^ Umm, no thank you.

    I'm down for pro-style benching. That sounds fun.

    What about one for pullups? I don't think i've ever seen one of those.

    Maybe doing BW+1/8 or 1/4 for reps or something

    That would be pretty pimp too... or we could pick a standard weight as well.

    Like BW +45 for reps.

    Bodyweight front squat should be good... I consider myself a decent front squatter for my weight at least

    2xBW Deadlift sounds pretty good too.

    EDIT: Actually, 2xBW deadlift is a bad idea lol (hint: chris rodgers)

    Oh gawd, you can take the trophy.

    I guess I'm not with it, but what's pro style benching? With gear?
