It was an awesome time at Jakked Gym in Montgomery, IL yesterday. The event was called Pull For Pups and it was a fundraiser for two rescue shelters.There was an amazing turnout and a great time had by all. There was probably 5-6 times the amount of people that showed up last year and a lot more money and donations raised for the rescue shelters. Big thanks to Byron and Tami Hicks for putting on such a great event. And a special thanks to J-Dawg and Universal/Animal for donating some great items for the raffle.
Me and Josh had a pretty good warm up. It's hard to get ready for an event like this because we've never attempted a 2 man pull and have only trained (or even been in the same room together) maybe 3-4 times. Plus it's a custom made bar that we use for the pull. Unfortunately we came up short and just missed pulling the 1,200#. I didn't realize just how damn close we came until I saw the picture my oldest son took! Damn! For 2 guys who's combined DL total is around 850#, we did REAL F***ING good! I'm proud to have been a part of such an event. Here's a pic and video.

My 6 year old (Autistic) son wanted to try to pull too! How could I tell my MiniMe no? Lol. So we went up and gave it a try. Of course it didn't move. But when we got home last night he was upset that he couldn't move the bar. This is how the conversation went.
Johnny: "I wasn't able to lift it" (tears in his eyes)
Me: "how many guys were there that who were bigger than daddy but didn't even try?"
Johnny: "a lot"
Me: "Then you did better than all of them"
Johnny: "yeah" (big smile)
Great work, bud! Story about your kid brought a smile to my face too.

Best Lifts: | Goals:
SQ167.5(368.5) | 180(396)
BE112.5(247.5) | 120(265)
DL205(451) | 220(484)
my question is:
Let's say 2 guys both of whom can pull 600 on any given day (post warm up).
How hard or easy should a 2-man pull of 1,200 be?
