Feats of Strength Contest For Beasts, Wimps, Ladies, Weenies, And Everyone Else

Even this loser could win. Don't let it happen!

Greetings.  I hope you are already having a jolly day, because it’s about to get a whole lot better.

Adam Glass from Walk The Road Less Traveled and I are hosting a feats of strength contest and you can win a bunch of prizes if you’re awesome. Now, before you say, “Well, I’m not strong” or “I can’t do any of that stuff,” get a hold of yourself.

Anyone can and should enter.

Breakdown of Categories

  • Men’s most creative
  • Mens most impressive
  • Mens most entertaining
  • Women’s most creative
  • Women’s most impressive
  • Women’s most entertaining

If you’re not a brute, just get in the mood to get creative and win on pure style. For instance, I can’t tear cards nearly as well as Adam can, but maybe I’m more creative. Maybe I’ll cut up a deck of cards with a chainsaw or throw them into the rotors of a helicopter that’s chasing me after I cause an International Incident.

What can you do?

If you’re not the strongest, just do something that nobody else will think of. Kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, hell’s bells, running, cartwheels, wiggling your ears 100 times in 60 seconds, etc. No excuses. Start strength training.

What can I win?

There’s going to be a lot of stuff, but here’s what I can tell you today:

  • A month of online fitness/strength coaching with Adam. He’s freaking expensive and this is an awesome prize
  • A month of advertising on my blog over there in the sidebar

Books, equipment from Strongergrip, and more. It’s going to be fun, and that’s why you should participate.

Who are the judges?

  • “Unbreakable” Adam T. Glass
  • Me
  • My dapper and strong friend David Dellanave from good old Shoemoney
  • Frankie Faires…the closest thing to Tyler Durden that I’ve actually seen

Now what?

Between now and March 20, film a decent-quality video and upload it to Youtube, Viddler, or wherever you like. If you need help doing this, let me know.

Either contact Adam or contact me through our blogs and tell us you have a video to enter. We’ll upload it on the contest page for the voters. That’s all of you, once the judges narrow it down a bit.

Another take

Here’s Adam saying the same stuff, but wearing an uncharacteristically sassy sweatsuit:

One final note

I really don’t want to win all the prizes. It will be the last blow my swelling ego can take, and I’ll never be right in the head again. Only you can save me from the consequences of world domination.

    Are team efforts allowed?

    • Josh Hanagarne February 21, 2010, 1:46 pm

      That hadn’t ever crossed my mind, but absolutely!

    Team Efforts? Sure, but if one person from the team is doing the lions share of the work than i shall give them the lions share of the prize 🙂

    Gubernatrix i know you have more than a few great strength feats up your sleeve

    I vote for the motherly balancing act: bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan, take out the grease, wash the sheets, and even get the house cleaned on top of all these feats!

    • Josh Hanagarne February 21, 2010, 2:45 pm

      Daisy, that sounds totally fine, but you do have to submit a video!

  • Gubernatrix February 21, 2010, 4:38 pm

    Cool! I’m having a think about what to do…

  • Chris B February 23, 2010, 12:26 am

    Bummer … I can’t do video (and REALLY don’t want to either). Oh, well, maybe next time. (sigh)

    • Josh Hanagarne February 23, 2010, 10:42 am

      Maybe you can submit an audio recording that’s convincing enough)

  • Jake February 23, 2010, 2:17 pm

    I propose (but won’t attempt): the toilet paper roll tear – ripping open a tp roll from the inside.
