Rhovaniel Posted November 26, 2018 Report Share Posted November 26, 2018 So, a recent 'no running' order from my physio has prompted a little PvP idea, as whilst my issues get ironed out and I'm cleared to run again, I will be focusing a lot on upper body strength. Whatever our circumstances, wherever we are, no matter how far from, or close to, our goals, we face being bogged down by our enemies. Sloth, fatigue, well meaning friends and family encouraging us to forgo this workout or that, scared or jealous ones who tell us the same in different ways. Injury. Sickness. The enemy is everywhere, whispering in our ears, lying to our faces. Tripping us so we fall. But defeating our enemies is what we do. We are the Rebellion. If we are to conquer the demons, achieve our goals and silence the negative voices trying to dampen our radiance, we must do this one thing above all else. We must Rise. In that spirit, this PvP is about Rising Above the Pull-Up Bar. Or hanging off it, but that didn't work so well in the title The rules are simple. The PvP will start tomorrow, the 27th November (because I am not organised to get the challenge underway beforehand!) and run until the end of the challenge on the eve of Christmas Eve. The Rebel with the most points wins. You can sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1H9po8MwPLpVDDtespqiMhkykd6ntQB7GMNvwZbHjOP4/edit#gid=0 Points are allocated according to which category it belongs to. Pull-Ups or Hangs. Pull-ups - Each rep is worth 10 points - For the sake of simplicity and to avoid confusion, ONLY THESE EXERCISES COUNT as a 10 point/rep: 1. Full Pull-Up 2. Full Chin-Up 3. Negative Pull-up 4. Band Assisted Pull-Up This should make it fair and accessible for all. Hangs - Each 10 SECONDS is worth 1 Point - So, if I did a 30 second dead hang, I get 3 points. If I did a 20 second dead hang and a 30 second flex arm hang, I'd get 5 points. 1. Dead hang (Remember, squeeze your shoulder blades and draw them down, and squeeze your butt!) 2. Flex arm hold (like this) Now, I suck at spreadsheets. Fact. So the spreadsheet for the PvP comes courtesy of @Charlie_Quinn 3 Quote “All You Have To Decide Is What To Do With The Time That Is Given To You.” - Gandalf The Chronicles of Rhovaniel, Dúnedain Ranger: Volume One: Wintering, Volume Two: Winter is Passing, Spring is Near, The Chronicles of Rhovaniel, Volume Three: Reborn into Spring (current) Spring Goals: Run consistently w/out pain| Complete StrongViking| Reduce BW to 3kg (77kg)| Read stock book| Consistently meal prep| Finish Thesis writing| Sort out nosebleed issue | Complete 100km canoe adventure??
