The Bet


After me maxing out at 140kg today….expect this to climb significantly.

The lads are betting that I can’t bench press 180kg on the 1st of November 2008. So far they are betting €300 in total that I can’t do it and I’m covering any and all bets…I won’t be updating the blog again till then because I don’t want to waste any physical or mental energy…I think I may need it all.


I just wanted to post this because I thought it was cool…only an American could come up with this.

  1. Those idiots don’t know that all of your power comes from your fat. Sounds like an easy money bet to me as long as you get in some solid bench rowing in the interim.

  2. Speaking of weird band exercises,

    What do you think of this . . .

    I’ve got some bands but they’re not quite long enough to do the exercise. I thought I might by a longer band and give it a go.

    Anyways,

    hope you take all their money 🙂

    True…all the funny is in the fat as well.

    I will be because my shoulders are wrecked at the moment and I have literally not trained at all in over 2 months….well at least I’m fresh.

    What the hell is that band stuff?
    That is Cookies modification of our normal hamstring stretch.

    Torture?
    Not for him obviously.

    40kgs in a month? and you question Poliquin’s 12 chin-ups…
    It is going to be tight.

    Ask the lads…because we’ve been doing it for ages…in fact I think I still have some vids on the laptop of lads doing that stretch before that video was uploaded…maybe I could start another plagiarism controversy?

    The lads have always liked it…I think there are vids and photos on the blog of the lads doing it in fact…good to see that you pay such good attention to all my hard work?

    Anyways,

    hope you take all their money 🙂
    Me too.

    The lads can’t actually believe that your current max bench is 140kg?
    No…I’m sure they believe it because that’s what I did last night when I did my first session in about 3 months or so.

  5. Assuming that you could actually get worse, what are the odds that you will completely wreck yourself in this vainglorious attempt?

    Probably somewhere in the vicinity of 100% I’d say.
