Don't know if you guys have heard of Timbahwolf but each NYE he does the years's worth of pullups for time. So NYE this year would be 2015 pullups. Clearly that is quite an endurance workout. He suggests that anyone that can do around 20 pullups could do it (if they have the determination).

So I thought this could be a good challenge for Ausbb?

I however, have an injured shoulder and am unable to do pullups at the moment so I was thinking of doing it with BW squats. That is, whatever BW I am, put that on my back and start squatting.

Is anyone else insane enough to do this with me? Pullups or squats?

No rules really, just get it done :) Timbahwolf did it in 7ish hrs the first time and a bit over 5 last year. Recommended not to go to muscular fatigue as you will need more rest.

I thought 2/3 bw squats for women and 50% band resistance for pullups would work ok.

Alternatively, for those who can complete both exercises maybe a combination of squats and pullups to total 2015 would be ok also? Thoughts?

And yes, I will be getting on the piss too for sure but I always make sure to get a good workout in on NYE. Previously, I've done my 1rm testing that day but seeing as how I am unable to do that, bulk reps will have to do! :D

On the upshot, you'd get hammered pretty quick after doing all that work ;)

I'll most likely be doing this at PTC Brisbane also as normally in Brissy for NYE. Could make a day of it, if others wanted to join there?

I can't squat for a few months at least but I could give the pullups a go.
Shoot that's a lot of them though.

Can you do them in sets with a break cos grip on 2015 ... lol the mental imagery is not good

I'm in

We should do bench or overhead press too for those of us with chicken legs

Maybe a bw or 3/4bw bench challenge for cumulative reps over the day

I would think about 3/4 BW bench would be the go if the squat is at BW. OHP 50% would be farkin hard!

i remember reading a similar challange that Neil Gardener used to do on his bday, he would choose an exercise and then a weight and do that exercise for number sets he was turning, for example, 35 sets of deads on his 35th bday, pretty sure it was written up in HCAM when that was around and he videoed some of it and posted on his website.

Not sure which is harder.....

JZ you are messed up. lol.

Haha thanks!

The birthday one : number of singles at 90% on any big compound would be decent I reckon. Eg 35 years old therefore 35 singles at 90% for the Squat

See the Aussie bloke on the project tonight? Broke the 24hr chin up world record, did 4210.

nuts!

So I was thinking of opening this up to small groups to make it doable for more people. Thinking groups of up to 5 people which would still be pretty damn hard.

Also, option to do 3/4 bw squats if doing front squats or safety squat bar.

Open to suggestions for a charity to raise money for also. Once that is sorted, I'll setup a charity account.

Got me thinking. Guinness World Record For Most Weight Squat Lifted in 24 Hours - Mixed Fitness Mixed Fitness (http://www.mixedfitness.com/squat-lift-world-record) 80*2015=161200. Do that 3 times for a world record

I think Thomas Lilley - owner of PTC Gold Coast owned that record for a while.

I also believe it's how he ruined his hip.
