Whats the point of an organization putting on a contest to see who can do the most reps with the worst form possible? I don't understand the purpose of this. Apprantely MAX is training for such a contest.

Discuss.

i dont get it? what are the contest guidelines for this event? form must be taken into consideration one way or another, 5 inch ROM is not considered a rep.

From my understanding, form doesnt matter, just the amount of reps you do. :uhoh2:

has anyone seen any of max's training videos? he uses some of the loopiest sloppiest form ever. remembering what he did off the last vid i saw i wouldnt be suprised if his "48" consecutive chinups were on a chin assisted machine where his bodyweight was set to 5kg.

The thread was about the contest of bad form contests in which Max is participating, not a thread to rip on Max.
The idea of him doing 48 full pull-ups is clearly not believable, but if they do not care about form then I can see anyone banging out 48 pull-ups. If such a contest exists I have no idea but I would go for a laugh for sure.

but if we look at it through the transistive property then; shitty form pullup contests are stupid and silly, max is competeing in a shitty form pullup competition, therefore max is stupid and silly :2:


my logic is utterly infallible :gheyfight:

Laughing at the competition is far better than laughing at a person and insulting Max directly. That is something that we all did not like about jornT and then we go and do the same? Not good IMO, :dunnodude: but the idea of the comp is hilarious.

obviously the transitive property is not applicable here. this translates to a joke, not a direct insult.

A joke is you using a fan while doing your cardio you sissy :keke:
