MuscleTalk Hall of Fame

For those of us who don’t know who the famous MT members are, how about starting a MuscleTalk Hall of Fame. Entry would be determined by achieving either a World record, or winning a World, European, Commonwealth or National title. Any discipline would count, such as Powerlifting, Oly, Body Building, Strongman or grip work. An obvious candidate would be Mobster for all of his grip feats.

Also, for us mere mortals we could have bronze, silver, gold and platinum rooms.

Entry to the rooms would be as follows:

Bronze – Squat 1.75 x BW, Bench 1.5 x BW, Deadlift 2 x BW

Silver – Squat 2.25 x BW, Bench 2 x BW, Deadlift 2.5 x BW, Coc 2, RB 180

Gold – Squat 3 x BW, Bench 2.5 x BW, Deadlift 3 x BW, Coc 3, RB 240

Platinum – Squat 3.5 x BW, Bench 2.75 x BW, Deadlift 3.5 x BW

There could plenty more entry categories such as pinch gripping, plate curling OH squat, Oly lifts, Ironmind or Challenge bar bending.

    Great idea, but Im not sure about all the different categories, you'd end up with only one person in some categories. You could also include competing bodybuilders, we've got loads of them.

    I think it would be best as a whole new area of the site, not just a sticky. Competing bodybuilders we've got could have a photo and a litle profile of themselves.

    To get into your "Gold" room I would need a total of 2720 pounds!! To get into your platinum room I would need a forklift!

    I think perhaps you need to consider your boundaries a bit better!

    Good idea, although I'd just stick to people who have achievements that take place in competition and can thus be verified.

    Colin,

    I'm no expert at these sort of things, the figures I've put down are just to start the debate.

    I do think the % BW lifts are a good idea but I do recognise that we have some very talented lifters here who like to carry a bit of 'padding' if you see what I mean.

    So entry to the Gold room could be gained either by lifting 3 x BW for squat or say 275kg regardless of your weight.

    I think it's great - I'd be in platinum right off the bat for my grip. :)

    No you wouldn't, you'd have to make do with a place in the Hall of Fame. The Bronze to Platinum rooms are for us mere mortals.

    And to clarify another point, you only need to achieve one discipline to get into a room, so to get 1.5 BW bench is enough to get you into the bronze room.

    A while back the mods discussed something similar.

    Not really a "hall of fame" as such but a forum or section where competing members would have profiles listing their achievements and so on..... Of course not all competing members would want to be in such a section as many talk openly about their drug usage, but it would be open to all who wished to be in it.

    Note that this was in the pre-pre-planning stage and has not been mentioned for a while, so don't hold your breaths lol. I tell you all this only so you realise that we the mods have thought of everything first lmao.
