  1. Friendly Over Head DB Triceps Ext. Challenge...


    Army Guy VS ThunderGod

    Hey guys we have a little friendly competition here that we started well I should say Army Guy started after being very impressed by the powerful ThunderGod's incredible lifts. The gauntlet has been thrown down and the challenge has been made on Army catching and surpassing Thunders' freakish strength on Overhead DB Triceps Extensions. Since it's inception the fun of this has created quite a stir amongst the group we frequent each others logs and now the challenge has expanded.

    Now instead of just "heavyweights" we have multiple sizes getting in on this. To make if fair and fun we.... Well okay... I decided to make a thread with a few fun rules to keep things fair and interesting.

    We will take the number of reps each person does multiply it by the weight they lifted and then divide that number by there body weight. Giving a basic pound for pound strength comparison. If you reach a number over 12 with the highest weight dumbbell you have then you should use an EZ Curl /French Curl bar and increase weight. If we can keep reps semi consistent in the 8-10-12 rep range the weight lifted per pound won't be overly skewed.

    Currently in the race, ArmyGuy, ThunderGod, SilentBob, Ex-TightEnd83, EdWitt, and I believe Oufinny. Oh yes and myself of course.Others are welcome this should be fun. Let's keep it that way...

    If you want in just post up that you are putting yourself into the comp and then post up your weights /reps on that lift along with your body weight. This is an ongoing thing not a one time throw your weight up. This should be more fun and motivational with a little bragging rights thrown in for good measure.

    TG 130x10, 140x10 and has done 150x10 before. 255 lbs.
    Punthra 140x10, 246 lbs
    AG 125x10 233 lbs
    Mine will be up tomorrow but will not be as high as the monsters... YET!

    ?? The fact you are ~60 lbs lighter may put you ahead, thats the essense of lb for lb.

    I'm in on this. Ive done 100x10,10, 10 at 210ish..However, Being that this friday I hit the very same exercise, Im gonna push higher and be down to 205ish

    However you want it, you are as strong as or stronger than a lot of really big guys anyway. Let's see what you can do against the big boys on weight pushed. Really it is all fun and motivation but that being the case let's wreck shop!

    Exactly...i dont want to push less weight then someone else and still be in the lead. In life you wont walk up to the guy messing with your girl and ask for his weight....no matter how big he is you better be able to step up to the challenge.

    No point in having bragging rights if someone is still stronger then you....Pound for pound is something i did away with long ago since all the guys i train with are so much larger then myself. Either im stronger then them...or im not. This is the way i like to compete. No excuses...no saying well your 240 and im 187...it's not fair...id rather man up and get stronger despite the weight difference.

    You are so old school pimpin' I love it! I made the pound for pound out of fun, and a way to be competitive across the board for everybody. However it is truly impressive to throw your hat into the big time arena of weight only. I have not doubt you will hold your own and shock and awe those who have not seen your weights already. I know I will be lifting like I am chasing the heaviest weight regardless.

    Now a little competitive motivation for everyone.

  25. I'm down like a clown.....Ch...Ch...Charlie Brown!!!

    I rotate different exercises for the same muscle groups so much that I don't do the same lift but every 3 weeks or so.
    That means that I have 2 more weeks before I hit up the 2-Hand Behind Head DB Triceps Extensions again.

    I'm planning on raising the bar........very high!!!

  26. Man I am so in and without the pound for pound formula you aren't seeing me light the world on fire! Nonetheless I am happy to report my previous best as a starting point: BB overhead extensions (skulls) is 95x8 and I did that at 190 pounds. Now, I am going to transition, hopefully today actually, to doing DB overhead extensions and see what my baseline is and with some Prime and TestoPro I should make some insane gains here shortly... while on a cut! Digging the invite Kleen and let the game begin!!!!!

    Thunder I am almost scared how high you are going to raise the bar big guy. You really give new meaning to the term functional strength with the weights you move around consistently. We are all waiting anxiously for these two weeks to be up and see what craziness you throw our way.

  28. just some BEAST up in here!!! Someone better let Punthura in on the action

  35. LOL!!!! I'm gonna see how many times I can get the 125s up next week, since my punk-ass gym manager's draggin' his ass on getting me my 150s. But I may load up 150 on the EZ curl bar tomorrow, just as a test....

  37. hey Xt I have the same issue... I have my son place a 5lb, 10lb, etc, plate on the top and just balance it while I knock the reps out. Since the DB is coated in that rubber material, it sticks in place real nice like!
    and 150x10!!!!!! oh that is such the punk move right there TG!!!!

    This will have to be my approach to the competition as well....though I don't think 150 will be on the bar.
