I Will Squat One Million Pounds

It's not about the barbell.

My wife and I were married in Sendai, Japan.

I have to do something.

Right now, there's not a lot I can do except maybe try to contribute some money. I've looked into websites like to collect dollars, but some of them lop 10% off the top right away. I can't abide the idea of people profiting off of disaster right now, so anything I donate will be to reputable charities directly.

I will be donating my dollars, and any dollars I raise through fundraisers at work or through this website to:
The American Red Cross

I will squat one million pounds. I will raise, at the very least, $10,000.

I can do the squat by myself, but I'll need help to raise the money.

I don't normally ask anything from you, but I am now. Please join me. Keep a running poundage and donation total and post them here from time to time to keep us honest and on-task. We're all on our honor here.

Rules for the squat? None. I will be counting squats with weight to parallel or below, but it's not about the barbell. It's up to you.

Thanks everybody. I hope to hear from you,


We've started a thread over at Dave Draper's website - so far we've sent $1000 to The American Red Cross. Squat One Million Pounds For Disaster Relief
