Last year was undoubtedly defined by the Ragnarok workout.
That being said...
It is time to up the ante.
It is time to take it to the next level
It is time, for the MANTATHLON!!!
This was created by Martin Rooney and you can see the original article by clicking here.
What is the MANTATHLON?
It is a timed test of upper body strength. You have 20 minutes to complete up to 20 reps in each event.
Bodyweight Bench Press for Reps
Bodyweight Chin-ups for Reps
Half-Bodyweight Overhead Press for Reps
1.25 Bodyweight Dips for Reps
Half-Bodyweight Barbell Curl for Reps
You must weigh yourself before you begin
Once the clock starts it does not stop
The events must be performed in order
Form must be perfect for a rep to count (no quarter reps awarded)
If you rack it, or let go before achieving 20 reps, the event is over
Any reps after 20 min do not count
If you didn’t film it, it didn’t happen
0-10 – Low Man on totem pole
10-20 – Skinny Man or Man Boobs
20-30 – Average Man
30-40 – Wing Man
40-50 – Door Man
50-60 – Athletic Man
60-70 – He Man
70-80 – Super Man
80-90 – Mega Man

So where do I stack up?
My best is a score of 56 at a bodyweight of 260.
What is the best I have ever seen?
96. It was wildy impressive to watch and he only missed the last 4 curls.
And that, ladies and gentleman, is the defintition of tragic.

Have you figured out where am I going with this?
My 2017 goal is to get 100.
I desperately want to complain about how much I hate upper body workouts for a full calendar year.
