A tight squeeze

A SIGNALLER from 7CSR will lift
one million kilograms of free weights
in a bid to raise money for Legacy.
Sig Wade Timmings has been hitting
the gym every day since April 25 to push
out 10,000kg each session and plans to
continue for 100 days.
He got the idea from his friend LCpl
Nyree Hottes (featured in the March 29
edition of Army), who ran 10km a day for
100 days earlier this year.
"I thought that was a good idea and I
wanted to do a version based around lift-
ing," Sig Timmings said.
Pushing 10,000kg of free weights
each session can take half an hour if he's
working legs and up to 90 minutes if lift-
ing with the upper body, according to Sig
"The heavier you lift the harder it
gets because you fatigue much quicker.
You need to find a balance," he said.
With most of 7CSR deployed over-
seas, Sig Timmings decided Legacy
should benefit from his many hours in
the gym and his mates have been quick
to help out.
"They're pretty keen," he said. "Some
come down to the gym and lift with me
and I've had some donating pretty sig-
nificant amounts of money."
