Unofficial Mini Challenge (May 31 - June 7)


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Mini Challenge Support Group.  While we impatiently wait for the next 6 Week Challenge, we are holding a completely unofficial mini challenge to allow addicts to get their fix.  Anyone can join, including new Recruits.

 

Mini Challenge ends SUNDAY JUNE 7 @ 12 NOON CST

 

We will be working on two exercises:

 

Side Planks  <-- click for demo video

 

We will be logging total seconds of side planks - both left and right side.  Any variation counts as long as you don't make it too easy on yourselves.

Tricep Dips  <-- click for demo video

 

We will be logging total number of dips.  Again, any variation counts.

>> LOG TIME HERE <<

 

 

This is an unofficial mini challenge, so there are no attribute points associated with playing.  Mostly it's just for bragging rights and something to keep us from going into withdrawal.  In addition to declaring a champion in each exercise, everyone can earn a participation award based on their totals.  Note that awards are complete virtual, no actual medals will be given out :)

 

Awards are as follows:

 

Bronze

Planks - 500 seconds

Dips - 100

 

Silver

Planks - 1000 seconds

Dips - 200

 

Gold

Planks - 2000 seconds

Dips - 400

 

Platinum

Planks - 4000 seconds

Dips - 800

 

Unobtanium

Planks - 8000 seconds

Dips - 1600

Cool! A mini challenge before my first challenge :D

 

Is it possible to dual-medal? 

Like Bronze in Dips but Gold in Side Planks?

 

Definitely.

It wasn't intentional - I couldn't recall where I'd heard it from.  It just sounded good for the challenge :)

So excited to start the mini challenge this morning only to wake up with a painful right shoulder! :( I put up a token start anyway. Hopefully it will start to feel better so I can get going in earnest.

Plitog asked "Who [will] put the dip in the dip de dip de dip"? So far that would be Toxophilite, Miska23, and Trewest! Goodness ya'll! 

 

Fortunately the shoulder pain disappeared earlier today so I've been able to put up a few more sets. Looks like I have a long way to go!
