    That would be bad ass. Not that I have a chance at winning but I'd definitely like to see the outcome. :noes:

    The winner would be someone below 200 pounds. Actually chances are it'd be someone in the 150 range. Lighter bodyweight is an enormous advantage in that kind of contest.

    probably the same as the person who benches the most because most guys aren't that much heavier who bench a lot

    anything that involves bodyweight comparison always favors lighter peeps

    Can you think of a better contest that doesnt require weight classes then? I agree with what you're saying but I figured maybe some of the stronger pl guys here could put up some solid numbers. :dunno:

    formulas also favor lighter lifters. Comparing diff bodyweights is hard to do ..

    I would win. You know why I would win? A few reasons. 1. I'm awesome. 2. I would cheat my balls off. I'd have reverse bands hooked up just out of camera site, those fuckers would be taking off like 200lbs at the chest. I'd get about 900 reps and you'd all be left wondering WTF.

    For real though, it's have to be by wilkes formula or the equiv. to compare numbers. I seriously doubt that 1/2 of F&N is smart enough to figure out how to do that. The other guys don't care.

    Are we factoring in wing span? Only one guy is smart enough to figure that one out.

    Fuck dude. I'm a mechanical engineer and work on nuclear submarines but no fucking way would I even try to figure out wingspan calculations.

    I would lose since I am sure 6-7 reps would be my max.

    225 @ 7 reps would be mine.

    Jesus. This really wouldn't be fair for the big guys.

    I'm pretty sure I could do at least 30 reps @ 170lbs

    Thanks for understanding. It's hard to be the big guy in town.
