    I was wondering if we could have a Deadlift contest after the Devil's team wins the Squat Contest. What do the powers-that-be think about that possibility?

    Good idea, but it's impossible because The Death Squad is going to win

    How about a rep contest with a twist?

    Bodyweight deadlift repetition comp, but this time your allowed to bounce.

    The rules

    The bar can't sit on the floor for more than a second or so, touch and go.
    You can take as long as you like, but can only "rest" when the bar is lifted. No hitching.
    No mix'd grip. Either palms up or palms down.
    The winner is the one with most reps. Maybe some extra to the guy/gal who takes the longest.

    How about it? I belive that it will be murder, at least for the grip.

    That would be more of a grip contest than anything else.

    I believe the Nuge had it right the first time about the Minions winning it all.

    Anyway, I voted for deadlifts back in that poll, so afterwards it could be cool in the fall or something.

    I had all sorts of great comments ready, but then I realized I was talking to a woman and it wouldnt be appropriate.

    The nice view of her ass is being wasted by the large text. That is the only thing I see wrong with that pic.
