i'd change the title to "adarq.org historical leaderboard" perhaps, and include the actual lifetime PR numbers listed by date :) but ya you're missing tons of people. also as an example, you have me in RVJ but not say LBSS or ARowe who both jumped basically as high (37-38 peak) but are shorter & have a shorter reach. So you need numbers & a full list in order not to skew/mislead.

I think a historical leaderboard is probably a good idea tbh.. it'd be a good one stop reference to see what people are into, where they excel, etc.

It should probably be in this format:

Top RVJ:

#1 - Handle, age, date, number, <how it was measured: vertec, video, etc>, <optional journal post of when it was hit>
#2 - ...
#X (not limited to 5, everyone gets on the list)

Top Squatters:

#1 - Handle, age, date, weight squatted @ set x reps, bodyweight, relative strength ratio, <optional journal post of when it was hit>
#X ...

stuff like that.

It could also have other categories like bench, deadlift, standing OHP, even some oly lifts/totals, 100m sprint, 200m sprint, 400m sprint, 800m, 1 mile, 5k, 10k, broad jump, long jump, L-SLRVJ, R-SLRVJ, DLRVJ :D

Also mutumbo & T0ddday sprint. oh and t0ddday has a mean RVJ. oh and "rip" was definitely among the top RVJ's, even though it was inflated a bit, he got way up.

So this "leaderboard" could expand quite a bit, include everyone, and become a good historical reference for PR's on the forum.

I'll post some stats for myself tomorrow probably, then maybe help you edit the original post a bit if you want.

lmk if that makes sense or if it's beyond the scope of what you wanted to do :f

peace

a historical progress tracker is like the "progress tracker" (that I was also coding into the new forum FML) for one person but across the whole forum.

dno, could be useful.

Yeah a historical leaderboard would be nice, that way we know where everyone is/was at, that way we know where their journals took them and how they progressed.

Thanks for including me in the overall strength list, but the only way i can be at the top of that ( or any ) ranking list is if to read it backwards  ;D  :uhhhfacepalm: :wowthatwasnutswtf:

It's a fun idea and I did start a rankings topic years ago but it got no traction. Hopefully this one does. But as it stands, and no disrespect, but it needs a LOT of work atm. Let us fix it. I mean, for one, I have trained to a 35'' SVJ multiple times and I cannot recall seeing maxent or scooby do a 34''+ SVJ. They probably have big ones but - I don't see why they're on there unless you've seen something I haven't. Here's a SVJ/RVJ list:

SVJ
Kingfish - a good 40''
...
...
...
steven-miller - 36''
T0dddday - 35.5''
Me - 35''
ChrisM I think had a 34-35''?
Taylor Horton and Rip must have had decent SVJ as well but can't remember exactly what

RVJ
ChrisM/T0ddday - both 45''
(Joel Smith was technically a member for a bit and he had a 45'' easy, Jacob Hiller too)
Rip - probably 42-43''
taylorhorton - ~41'' from memory
Avishek and adarq both jumped ~40'', ARowe may have hit 40'', scoobychau hit 40''...lots of 40'' guys over the times. I'm probably forgetting people. LBSS, Raptor, me all around 37-38'', Mutumbo, undoubtable, FP, vag etc.

Lots of big squatters and sprinters too. When you did that thread of 'adarq.org' is full of hard-working guys from the bottom end of the bell curve...' it made me scratch my head, we have had a lot of serious athletes here...they just don't stay very long.

I don't know why I said that, I'm a retard sometimes.

By the way, I might have to simply forfeit our contest and give you the crown and buy you an online gift card...... i have developed this strange condition where my hips lock up suddenly or groin, happens every 5-10 minutes randomly than goes away if i do some kind of awkward stretch, but always comes back.

http://www.adarq.org/strength-power-reactivity-speed-discussion/rankings-ii/

seemed to have quite a bit of traction! just wasn't maintained and/or stickied. sorry about that :/

not sure how I didn't contribute to that, I was still training hard during that time, weird.. edit: ooh I commented

I stopped training hard towards the end of Dec 2011, then completely detrained shortly after for ~4 years.

I went for quite a long period of inactivity on here while you guys held it down.

:highfive:

i'm kind of torn (well not really, leaning towards the initial rankings thread) since it already has tons of stuff in it..

dreyth is high up on tons of lists also (squat/rvj). IMHO he could battle kingfish for picture perfect squatter.

yup, and for people who created journals but don't post anymore but go way up, there's also joel smith, hickson, smooth, nightfly, jard, mic, jr, cowed, rutgersdunker, RJ.

others who posted but didn't journal like adam linkauger (lmfao), jacob hiller (that was funny, dude gets up good), josh sherrod, kellyb, who else? dno.

Dam you used to have a 35" SVJ?

Yea ive never come close to a 35" svj i think but my 1-2 step rvj would be close to that on a good day. I dont think i have good enough technique on SVJ to get anywhere much over 30". Not sure that's something worth changing though?
