What is a 1 Million KG Charity Lift?
In less than 24 continuous hours I will need to lift 1 million KG in the gym using a variety of equipment. So 10 reps on the bench press pushing 100kg would add 1000kg to the 1million total. To complete the challenge in 24 hours I would need to lift 41,667 KG every hour. It is predominantly an endurance (rather than strength challenge) and not completed by many!
1 million kg = 2.5 Jumbo Jets
I will start the challenge on Friday 24 February and complete it 24 hours later (or sooner if possible) on 25 February. Yes the lifting carries on overnight !
1 million kg = 500 family cars
It's a unique and very testing challenge designed to take the body and mind to their limits - this excites me. My colleague and will also be hoping to raise money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice - who do incredible work and need our help.
