Recommended Posts

The Harry Potter Themed House Cup PvP is open to all guilds and will be running from 19 March to 15 April 2018.  

<PvP Entry closed for this challenge, check back to see who wins the cup and join us next challenge>

 

The goal is to get some inter-guild banter underway, have some fun and improve your health at the same time! 

 

Each of the 4 houses from Harry Potter will be made up of a max 5 players of mixed ability and hopefully balanced if the sorting hat does it's job! 

 

The sorting hat:

To join the PvP enter your name in the sheet below on the Sorting Hat tab

The night before the cup starts you will be assigned houses by the Sorting hat! 

 

Feats to win house points:

Week 1: Km's walked or run over the week (capped at 70)

Week 2: 1RM Plank in secs (capped at 120)

Week 3: Burpees completed over the week (capped at 100)

Week 4: Pushups (see scaling below) completed over the week (capped at 84)

 

Bonus: Catch the golden snitch!

- At any time during the challenge measure your 3RM Deadlift (heaviest weight you can deadlift for 3 reps in a row). 

- The snitch score will only count if a score is entered for all the other 4 weeks.

 

Snitch alternative: Ride Buckbeak!

- Edit: **Snitch alternate movement** if you can't Deadlift you can do a max time Wall-sit, this will be capped at 160 secs and result divided by 4. Can be done at any time during the challenge and multiple attempts to get your best score allowed so see how much you can improve! 

 

Rules:

1. Results must be entered into this sheet weekly by 9am Monday in your timezone to count

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A2Rvhbn_9AXMME0uzTRPF2L-xGlLkee4dzOqbv8mGa0/edit?usp=sharing

2. Honour system for recording results.

3. Fitbit, pedometer etc. is allowed for week 1.

4. Pushups can be done at whatever your current level is, i.e. Wall, Benchtop, Knees etc. all count if they are your current capability.

5. Snitch score will be divided by 3 (deadlifts) or 4 (wall-sit) to give final bonus score. 

6. Anyone at any level of experience can join in, this is a team effort for fun. 

 

Prizes:  

1. Add House Cup winner to your signature!

2. Glory!

3. Bragging rights!

Oooh, I hope my broken bits are unbroke enough by the time this starts...

Which bits are broken? I might be able to come up with a scaled version of something for broken people :)

Eh. I broke my butt (strained piriformis). I've managed to seriously unbreak it in the past 24 hours, and I reckon I could probably manage most of these challenges on their weeks. I honestly don't know that the scaling would help, although so far I can do my upper body work just fine, so... ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I will add my name when I get home. Google drive is blocked at work.

Stand back everyone, the power house Warrior crew have arrived, they must be Hagrid's offspring just look at the size of them!

I may live to regret this, but I am a sucker for peer pressure and a direct challenge to the honor of my guild so... yeah. I'm in.

I wanted to walk away at "burpees" but then I wound up stuck between a 20SOC rock and a "what the heck" hard place.

Well yes, but it is divided by 3 and we needed something to hook the warriors in.... ;) 

 

You never know Dumbledore or Mrs McGonagall might interfere at some stage....
