I had a pretty shitty day today.  So when I finally had a chance to get a workout in at the end of the day, I needed to blow off some steam.  I ended up doing MANY human flagpole attempts after my workout.  I know.  What the fuck, right?  In my entire life, I’ve maybe tried to do this a handful of times without any success.

So a couple of buddies of mine asked me about my ab routine after I posted it on Friday.  Inevitably, the human flagpole question came up.  And, like a dick, I said that it probably wasn’t that difficult.  And even with my big legs, I’d probably be able to do it if I gave it an honest try.

So now I issue a challenge.

I bet you that I can do a human flagpole before you do.  Granted, I started tonight.  So if I ever succeed, you would have an extra 24 hours to complete one and become champion.


1) No gymnasts.  Weightlifters with big legs preferred.  Naturally, our main goals as weightlifters are to get bigger squats, snatches and clean and jerks.  Think of this like a side-quest in Legend of Zelda.

2) There will be 2 weight classes.  215 and above (heavyweight) and 215 and below (lightweight).  I will be competing in the heavyweight division because I’m 245lbs of brown thunder.  I also challenge any woman above 165lbs.  Lightweights for women will be 165 and below.  So, to be clear, there will be 2 total winners: heavyweight (M/F) and lightweight (M/F).

3)  You will post a youtube video of yourself performing the human flag in the comments section of the most recent post.  You also must video the weigh-in.  I don’t want to see you weigh-in.  Just zoom in on the scale and that will suffice. Scout’s honor.

4)  You gotta hold the human flag for 2 Mississippi’s.

5)  Winner gets a T-shirt.  If I’m lucky, I’ll win myself a damn shirt.

Game on.

Come on, what else do you have to do?  Don’t act like you never thought it would be kinda cool to be able to human flag.  Now you have an excuse to practice and win a sweet ass T-shirt.
