Well, the plan was to do the challenge for the month of February. Let's do it again next year.

Maybe we should do a new challenge for April, maybe something overhead. What does everyone suck at?

What about a challenge where we see how much we can improve the total weight lifted if you add your bench, squat and deadlift bests together?

That gives you young guys an advantage. If I can keep mine from going down, I'm good with that.

You would also be at a disadvantage, then.

Lots of younger kids, like myself, in here.
