PR Friday 8/16

PR Friday rolls around yet again. This week, AC gave us a quick update on the site (w/ text from Brent), and continued his Wednesday Interview Series with Callahan.

Also, Mike would like to share this challenge with the community, for a good cause:

Van Hatfield’s (2004 America’s Strongest Man) daughter Bre is undergoing Intense Chemotherapy treatments for bone cancer. Information for donations is available through the link. Additionally, “all of you that donate, we would ask that you video yourself doing deadlift for reps. You can use any implement or amount of weight. In the picture include a sign that says, “Believe in Bre”. Send a link to admin@americanstrongman.com.” I know a lot of us deadlift towards the end of the week, so I’ll post a reminder up on Friday morning. I’m going to do block pulls for reps on Saturday. http://americanstrongman.com/?p=4709

Since the 70′s Big community always seems to come through huge for charitable causes like this, I’m sure we can make a big difference again. Share your deadlift videos on the 70′s Big facebook page (or tag 70′s Big) and we’ll post them up next week here on the site.

We also got a bunch of “pressing things overhead” submissions this week:

And then, we have this. A reader with the email name “Fat Lenny”, sent us a video of him pressing his couch at home. I don’t even know where to begin, so I’ll leave this one as a caption contest for the comments:
