Challenge does not start until the 27th, and end on the 9th of September.

No one should hit "Complete" until the Challenge is over, only winners can hit complete.

The competition will be judged and monitored by The Tribesports Team, so incorrect entries will not count! Be sure to read the how to add data guide.

If you want to enter, click Take Challenge, then go and read the guide and read the rules.

OLYMPICS 2012: WEIGHTLIFTING - how much will we lift? Challenge rules

  1. Incorrect entries will not be added to the totals when they are counted up
  2. Read the guide and add weights as instructed - very important

Recent advice

“Really good idea this challenge, as everyone could contribute to their continent's total regardless of their lifting ability. And it encouraged volume lifting, rather than heavy weights, which tends to be healthier. Recommend we do it again some time.”

Contributorgold Alan E This was a GREAT challenge! Thanks Adrian! I liked how my lifts were adding to a bigger team score, really motivated me to increase my volume in the gym. It was also fun to get to know other lifters through encouragement and a little bit of trash talk. lol Thanks everyone!!!

I see past tense used, does this mean it is completed now Alan?

Alan E encouraged this.

20130121121741-alelf

Well, I lift Mon.-Wed.-Fri. so that was my last lift for this challenge. The challenge itself actually ends today, Sept. 9, as does the Paralympics in London, where I believe Tribesports is headquartered.

Jane H encouraged this.

Now that is commitment and discipline Alan. Have you noticed changes in your physique since you have been training so intensely?

Alan E encouraged this.

20130121121741-alelf

Thanks, Jane! :) Actually, I've noticed that when I'm laying in bed, I can feel the muscles in my upper legs pressing against my matress differently, like they're sticking out farther. It's not much, but noticeable. Visually, I'm seeing a slight difference too. My upper legs seem a bit wider. I can also use my knees more when I bend/squat down to a desk to help a student. After cross country season, which ends the first weekend in November, I will have more time and hope to be able to focus on eating more and gain more muscle mass.

Jane H and Big Swede ! encouraged this.

20131122040327-janeh

Wel, that is progress then, perhaps you should take some measurements and make a note of them :-)
