I’ve been looking for a big, new, dumb strength challenge to get excited about. I’ve chosen the Inman Mile and I would like you stalwarts to jump in as well. At least you, D2.
It’s pretty simple: put 150% of your bodyweight on a barbell. Put the barbell on your back. Now walk for one mile without setting it down. You win!
Apparently nobody has ever done this. You can stop and rest if you want, but you can’t take the bar off or support it in any way.
For me it’s going to take over 375 lbs. I’m no svelte daffodil.
Tonight I’m going to take a crack at it with about 200 lbs and see what happens. I’m sure that even that weight will crush me before I can make a half mile, although I’m entertaining the idea that I might break long before that.
I need some dummies to jump in. Yay team.
