Game National Bench-Press Challenge

9 October marks the start of the SSN Game National Bench-Press Challenge where competitors, fuelled by N.O. Crea-Pump and Crea-Mass, will have to bench their own bodyweight in an effort to win a spot in the top 3 and land themselves some awesome prizes. Placings will be based on the person who completes the most number of reps using proper form i.e. only full range repetitions will count. The overall winner from each Game store from the qualifying rounds, excluding non-KZN based winners, will be flown to the finals which are to be held 30 October at Game Gateway Shopping Center in Kwa-Zulu Natal to compete for the overall title and a load more prizes.
