    bigstevo83: Proof??
    bigstevo83: The running times are good. but your talking bullshit on the press-ups and sit-ups. Pull ups yes if done correctly.
    toshy888: everyone do this challenge:

    http://www.konkura.com/challenge/?uid=ef765e30-3905-4f3a-9c81-e96542b69dfe&t=most+challenges+performed
    The Renegade Bootneck: Hmmm... I agree with bear, need to see the technique... and have a look at the pull ups?

    There are a few similar challenges to this at http://bootneckblueprint.com
    GedMustoNumber1: 145 Press Ups and 186 Sit-Ups after doing those 1.5 miles back to back...no way Jose, plain and simple!!!...you must've only been coming up a couple an inch or two and that's it...do what guys like me, Bear, AndyWeaver, Worthster etc...does and put u
    Bear: In order for me to believe this...I would need to just see the video of you doing the press ups and sit-ups. I bet they aren't even close to a "real" one.
    Dinosaur: Extraordinay claims require extraordinary proof. We've got to see a video of this sort of performance, azza, because it's way, way ahead of what some very serious athletes have scored in this challenge!
