By now you’ve probalby heard of our Fit Man on Campus challenge—the editors of Men’s Fitness and Muscle & Fitness teamed up in search of the fittest college guy in America. Thousands sent us their workout videos, which featured young guys tackling insane fitness challenges—we’re talking beastly feats from a 50 meter swim in 30 seconds, to wall-sits with a stack of textbooks, to working out on a school landmark. The catch? Each entrant had to show us why they should win. And believe it or not, we whittled it down the pool of incredible candidates to 16 finalists in 4 rounds, selecting (drumroooooll please!) Connor McJury—a sophomore at SUNY Brockport—as the winner.

Check out this sweet mashup video of the best and most impressive entries of 2012. We have to hand it to each and every one of these guys...they all deserved some major recognition for their talents.

If you missed the challenge last year, start your gym prep and get your smartphone video going for 2013. You could have a shot at winning giveaways, prizes, and maybe even the ultimate bragging rights. Stay tuned for more entry information in the months to come.
