    We're roughly halfway through the Big 4 Comp so how's everybody doing? So far my team has a total increase of 196.5 on video. I'm sure we have more than that available (some people have posted PR's without videos and lots of rep PRs) but I'm only counting videos of new 1RMs.

    So where is everyone else at? I think this is a good opportunity for everyone to check in with their team and, if needed, pick up a new member or two. Do we want to have a final cut-off for new members? Say Oct 31?

    Also, all the other teams suck! War DrBdan's Big 4 Team of DOOM!

    Team Oblivian has come up 516.8. Almost all of that, if not all, is on video.

    Quite the improvement there!

    No idea how Cash4Gold is doing because of lack of updates, but I'm pretty sure we're holding our own.

    Ya, I think most of our stuff is on video. I don't know if literally all lifts are on video, but I'm sure we are above 400 lbs on video. I've been very happy with how our team is doing. Excel spreadsheet picking strategy FTW.

    I'm doing crappy but Gierrod's squat has made up for that. It would be nice if we could do a roll call for the next week or so to see who's around. Of course, we don't want to exclude someone that's hitting big PRs but just isn't around at the moment.

    I think we can leave the roll call up to the captains but if anyone reads this thread and would like to join they should post their info (name, 1RMs for squat/bench/dead/overhead) and if a captain needs a sub they can pick someone up.

    my numbers are negative right now, I injured myself not too long ago and my main focus has been something other than increasing max strength

    Honestly, I don't really give a shit about what you guys do with subs as we are dominating this motherfucker, but I thought part of the picking process was choosing guys who you knew would be dependable. My team will stay exactly as is, even though I know one is completely MIA.

    I am still in it and working hard, have been cutting weight though for a bit and have lost some strength, so no new PR's. The cutting is taking longer than I thought it would, but hopefully in the next week or so I will go back up to a bit above maintenance and gain back the strength and then some.

    I'm happy with my team, the only person I'm thinking about replacing is Silent P since the last post in his log (from May) said he was having surgery on a hernia and he hasn't posted since. I would have been fine with no subs but since people wanted it at the start I might take advantage of it.

    So far though it looks like Team p90x is kicking some serious ass.

    I'm down to join someone's team if needed. I'm a lump of shit lately at most lifts but my squat continues to go up. I might be good for 20 or 30 lbs by the end of the year.

    I've lost some strength since apparently the city in Ireland that I stayed in didn't have anywhere to lift at. That being said, I'm back now and ready to lock n' load.

    I need some motivation, so this may be good for me. I can't find the original thread and the search isn't working for me right now.

    As of 07-23-2010 Team CEREAL was +307lbs

    We must be somewhere around 400 by now though...
