The Madson Birthday Challenge
I wanted to develop a challenge that would be equal for
all experienced athletes that are the optimum weight for their height, and still give the
younger athletes a chance to compete against us "old guys." I call it
"The Madson Birthday Challenge."
It is based on your age, and five "body weight"
related exercises that must be completed within 25 minutes. Click on each photo to
Your age in pull-ups. I'm 48.
Your age in dips. I'm still 48.
Twice your age in push-ups. That's
96 for me.
Climb a 16' peg board, twice in a row.
A true "one-handed" pull-up,
with each hand.
Again, all 5 must be completed within 25 minutes.
If you can successfully do this challenge, then please
call or email me, because I would like to congratulate you.
The restoration of a 1952 Madson:
That's me, of course! I used to restore old cars
into high performance vehicles for about $25,000 by putting in a bigger engine, beefing up
the suspension, and giving it a new paint job. So, last year I decided to restore
myself. I read the "Body for Life" book, I wrote down a plan, and followed
it. With the right kind of workout, nutritional diet, and supplementation, I now
have the experiences of a 48-year-old, the body of a 24-year-old, and the imagination of a
12-year-old that hasn't realized the boundaries of reality.
Below are before-and-after photos of my 12-week E.A.S.
transformation (Experimental and Applied Sciences). Click on each photo to enlarge.
