RobF offered subscriber Gee Man $100 in exchange for proof of 50 pushups. The whole Low Content slack channel is witness to the wager and Gee's response to RobF's bluff. RobF refuses to pay!

Beware wagering with RobF! See the low content slack channel topic for video evidence.

    Unless there was supposed to be something super special about these push ups, Rob must be very out of shape to think this is an impossible number to get to. I'm 100% MAWG and I can get to 40 without killing myself, and that's with only working out 2-3 times a week in my living room.

    nah.. it wasnt anything special. robf just started running his trap, as usual, and he simply posted that if i can post a video of me doing 50 push-ups, he would send me $100.. so i did. now he saying they are not Full push-ups.. also after i posted the video, he did show that he paid $100 to a random charity of his choice. i am not sure why he did that, but i have a feeling he felt bad he did not pay me so he wanted to pay a charity the same amount of $100.. no biggie. . i also offered him to settle for $50 and he told me no..

    my defense is to simply go to youtube and look at others trying to do as many push-ups as possible in a certain period of time... look at their Range of motion. do they reach the point of locking elbows?? feel free to go to youtube and search speed push ups

    I'm not going to the video, but tbh, this is why any reasonably structured prop bet has to have clear definitions. There's prob a million videos that show horrible form but a big number of reps. Buy guys like big numbers and big ego more than proper form. (Not saying that was your goal, just that what one person thinks is legit is not what another person would have in mind.)

    I agree with you, but this is why 90% of prop bets are dumb. If a bet consists on some sort of challenge where something needs to be defined there are always problems. This is different from say betting on weight loss in pounds, body fat percentage, golf or bowling scores, etc etc.

    Guinness book of records easily counts as a governing body. And in their record books Dr Gee did 50 push ups.

    Hey guys. First off, lol @ the initial description of the post in the OP.

    So let's explain this situation in case anyone is actually wondering and wants info.

    Gee man has quite a reputation in slack as well, a character. He was spouting off in regards to him doing 50 pushups, after which I gave him a FREEROLL, not a bet, to post a video of him doing 50 full pushups. I specified this as well. Apparently the word "full" is somewhat vague, I intended this to mean full range of motion (or at least somewhat close to it). I think with a little common sense we can see that going up and down 1/8th of the way is not something that should qualify, especially after full was specified.

    I specify full

    Gee himself states they are not full pushups.

    The video of said pushups in question.

    I recorded a video myself explaining these pushups

    The OP here was posted as a troll and john actually offered to take it down, which I declined because I thought it was kind of funny. Just incase anyone clicks on this and takes it seriously, now you have the info.

    What happened after this fiasco, was that Gee Man actually deleted his pushup video immediately, luckily a subscriber found it in the archives so we can actually see that those aren't even close to full ROM. There was numerous offers from people wanting him to repost his video (which was up for a total of 5 minutes or so before he deleted it) He declined any offers to have a third party review the situation. There were also many offers from subs on slack to donate money to charity for him to repost, which he declined.

    Gee man also went nuts on me for being cheap/etc to which I responded by donating $100 to charity :)

    This was met with more salt from gee and he is still constantly attempting to swerve $100 out of me by posting a horrible form video for 4 minutes before deleting it. He also refuses to answer any questions about form/depth etc, which are usually responded to by insults from gee.

    I also offered him an opportunity to rerecord the video doing 50 full ROM pushups. This was, yet again, met by insults and declined (because he cannot do it).

    as you can see... this isnt like i was saying anything. rob farha just called me out in the thread.. like a challenge.. i can not lose here. when doing the push-ups, i just made sure my chest or face came close to touching the ground. try to do a push-up now.. bring your body close to the floor, then bring your body up, without reaching full arm extension. . is that a push up??? or do you have to reach full arm extension or locking??? i was curious to see for myself. . so i went to youtube to see what others were doing for push-ups or speed push ups or better yet Guinness book of Records push-ups.. go to www.youtube.com and see for yourself . i feel i'm doing more than enough movement up and down without reaching arm extension for it to count as a push-up. :)

    you can tell by rob farha's post that he is a little salty.. in the end, i just want people reading this to Vote. either Pay or Dont Pay. i'm happy either way and i find this very funny when it comes to the problems with Prop bets.. so this is the question. if this bet was for $10 or $100 or $1,000 or $10,000 does it change whether you would pay me for doing 50 push-ups... . do you feel my attempt was cheating in any way?? i'm curious to know.. i simply do not appreciate being called out by a fellow clp member, and if this member is a Mod or a coach, i feel i deserve some respect , especially when i produce what i've been told to... are these push ups? ?this is guniess book for world records.. enjoy and vote above :O

    Does this look full? You already admitted they weren't full and declined offers to retry doing full...

    i appreciate your opinion Oback. vote :)

    they look legit. the camera angle may fool you a bit.. but look at my chest or maybe my head.. see how when i look at the camera it doesnt even look like its moving up or down. .then when i look at the floor you can see its moving like 6 inches.

    Why won’t you re-record the video doing 50 full?

    What is your response to my video showing you the difference between your push-up and a full push-up?

    Why did you immediately delete the video?
  • geemondcgeemondc Posts: 27Subscriber
    rob.. i told you why i deleted the video after you and a few others saw it.. i knew you would take my image and use it in some way ( like you are now as your avatar).. we also had pokertime using my image as his avatar.. let me show ya
