Why don't you just give the shoes to the Bainbridges' and call it good...

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

I think this is going to be a great competition. I'm willing to put J and I up against anyone

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

Jodi won't be entering as she's preparing to break the Canadian Deadlift record in November and can't be screwing around with her deadlifts.

I might try to squeeze it in just for fun.

308 at her weight class I believe. There is a video of her doing 300 on the site somewhere.

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

308 is the current record set in 1989 for the 105 pound weight class. She plans to hit 310 tomorrow and 315+ at the competition. The tricky part is keeping her numbers in the PR zone until the competition in November. So we have to be careful with any WODs that involve DL.

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

So she is close to 3X her bodyweight or over it? That is freaking impressive!

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

Yeah, whenever I sit down and think about the numbers, it completely blows me away.

She's just under triple body weight right now, but the plan is to hit 315 @ 105 which will give it to her. Canadian Powerlifting rules state that a 4th attempt is allowed when you set a national record, so if all goes well she could set the bar even higher before all is said and done.

And I didn't mean to hijack the thread - sorry!

Re: Rogue Challenge - "The Mule"

That is awesome, I watched a guy at the Sorinex compound pull 3X. Rich Sorin gave put a hundred dollar bill on the lift. It was sweet.

That is quite the accomplishment, nice work Jodi!

It should be interesting how many folks step up to the challenge on this WOD, it is pretty heavy.

Keep us posted on the comp!

Bill
