If you like this challenge but it's private, for people of a much higher or lower
ability/fitness level, or you think lots of people are lying about their scores,
don't forget you can easily create a similar challenge for a different set of competitors,
or keep it private for friends who you trust to post honest scores. If you create
your own challenge you'll be able to moderate all entries as well.
This challenge is a measure of back strength.
Equipment required: Table top or padded bench as found in a gym.
Procedure: Competitors must lie face down on a bench, with their upper body from the waist hanging over the end of the bench. The subject's feet must be held or fastened down, and the arms by their side or behind the back. When ready, they must bring their body up to the horizontal position, and hold this for as long as possible.
