BENEFITING: Front Nine Foundation

EVENT DATE: Jul 18, 2017

Patrick Thompson

THE STORY:

Adam & Patrick's Goal:

While being powerlifters for #TeamFranklin in Peoria, Illinois, Adam & Patrick really like to lift heavy. Squats, bench, deadlift, etc. the whole nine yards. Adam & Patrick are doing something challenging for the event that will help raise a lot of funds for multiple people and organizations through the Front Nine Foundation's event, Squats for Soldiers.


Check out what they will each be doing to raise at least $127 for Squats for Soldiers on July 29th. 


Why $127?


Well, here is what they are doing; 127* reps of a Squat Marathon


1 x 505

2 x 405

4 x 365

8 x 315

16 x 275

32 x 225

64 x 145

Total Reps = 127

Total Volume 26,275 Lb's


HOWEVER - there is a catch. For every $1 that is raised OVER $127, that is how many ADDITIONAL bodyweight squats will be completed AFTER the original 127 reps are done. So, it is up to YOU to see how many reps they will have to do! 


If $500 is raised, they have to do an EXTRA 373 bodyweight squats....

Participants will challenge their body and mind to perform to a level of fitness that they have not before. Participants who enroll for Squats for Soldiers will sign up for a 5-minute time slot between the time of 8 AM and 12 PM on Saturday, July 29th, at Anytime Fitness North Peoria. Once the time of your squat arrives, the spotters will have your desired weight ready for your squat. Please let the registration table know of your squat weight and time when you arrive. This will assure that the event runs smoothly and that the spotters load the bar correctly. Lifters can choose from loads of 25lb up to whatever is desired to be squatted. Bodyweight squats are also allowed. The goal is to perform as many squats as possible with your desired mode. This is the time to push yourself to raise as much money as possible. You can get as many people to pledge or sponsor your Squats for Soldiers event. All money must be collected before or at the completion of the participant's squats.
