Nope. They don't. But for something like this, the line is almost assuredly set at .5 to reduce it to something that doesn't push 100% of the time.

Re: General Gym Observations

haha i know the words but dont understand the sentence. are you saying that if they do 1 rep it would be a push so making it 0.5 prevents a push, and so any number between 0 and 1 would be the same in this spot?

Because if they got one it would push.

I'd take the under on 1 for like 180

Ultra-marathon running and squatting heavy weights are very conflicting goals. I would be quite surprised if anything in her regular lifting is of the high-weight low-rep variety.

Maybe she could do 5 times as many body weight squats as some guys who can squat 4 plates, but if she is capable of squatting heavy weights she is probably not training very efficiently for ultra-marathon running.

Re: General Gym Observations

225lbs squat is a respectable squat for a woman of her age.

Ultra marathoning is like the worst possible thing you can do for your body.

I have a few "friends" (people I've done long runs with on a regular basis) who do ultras. That being said I am pretty sure a lot of the guys could squat 300+ and only weigh like 150. I agree that it is incredibly taxing on the body but there are some crazy strong guys running 100+ miles a week.

I would not bet on the previously described woman being able to squat 225.

I dunno, I know a fair amount of sub 14:30 5K guys and sub 31 minute 10K guys and I'd be really surprised if any of them could do a squat to parallel with 135 lbs nevermind double bodyweight.

Depending on the system, it may.

A fractional line can represents partial payout on the result immediately to either side of the line or just the closest when it isn't x.5

Eg line is 1.7, bet is $10, it's a limited spread bet (this may just be a term / concept my friend and I invented)

0 = under win 10
1 = under win 7
2 = over win 3
3 = over win 10
4 = over win 10 (in a true spread betting system the winner would get an extra unit for every unit of result his way hence the limited part of the name)

line is 1.7, bet is $10 it's one-way limited spread bet (this is how betfair do it on season finishing position bets for soccer)

0 = under win 10
1 = under win 10
2 = over win 6 (0.3 difference * 2 to represent partial win * bet)
3 = over win 10

I'm sure I've noobed up the terms but the short answer is - it can matter.

Re: General Gym Observations

Some systems use 1.25/1.75. Those are meant as wagers split between 1 and 1.5/1.5 and 2.

So... not really.

I have my doubts on the CFE guys doing the mileage of these nubs or the ability. Running 10K is sweet, but a far cry from 26m or 100m.

I just looked at the Rippetoe chart. 225 isn't impressive. It'd be enough to build a small shrine for. It is ~elite level for BW, she's significantly past her strength peak and a ultramarathoner. I'd consider driving out to watch this feat myself.

dids, c'mon brah, clearly not a wife beater.

Everyone I've ever seen work out in a wife beater is some skinny ass kid.

This thread is proof Ameritards are more retarded than Euros, I've never seen anything near as retarded as the stuff listed here. Just your standard 1/4 squats and excessive curling.

Lateral raises are the new trend at my gold's. They rival curls for the most performed excercise i see at the gym.

The guys I was talking about are not the sub 14:30 or 31minute 10k guys. They can just run forever. As per the guys you are talking about, I would bet that most of my college teammates who go sub 1430 could squat 135 but nowhere near double bodyweight.

Keep telling yourself that. I'm quite certain the Baltics have a loltastic culture of working out. I have not ventured into many countries who yearn for the glory days. lololol Northern.
