IT'S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE!

Our initial hike behind us, it is time to enter the Mines of Moria.  Lovely this time of year, certainly - time for a pleasant stroll, because nothing dangerous could possibly ever hap-

It seems we're not alone down here!  Well, you know what this means.........

 

TIME TO FIGHT!

 

HOW TO PLAY:

  • For this mini, we'll be fighting Balrog!  There will be two exercises available: one for attacking and one for dodging.  To attack Balrog, do a push-up.  To dodge a blow, do a squat.
  • For purposes of this challenge, you may count any squat or push-up variant that is suitably challenging for you.  Honor system, please.  You may do squats with weight, but each rep still counts as one rep, regardless of the extra weight you added.  You may not substitute bench press for push-ups.
    • The one exception is if you have an injury that means you cannot do either squats or push-ups safely.  If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise.  If you can do one but not the other, that's fine - do the one you CAN perform and work with your teammates to balance the blows and dodges.
  • Your team will have to do both attacks and dodges to earn points.  For each attack point, a dodge point must also be entered, or the attack point will not count.  The amount of damage you deal will therefore be dependent on your number of dodges as well as your number of attacks.
  • RACE BONUS IN PLAY!  Because dwarves are short more accustomed to fighting underground, they have an easier time dodging in this battle.  Each squat for team dwarf will count for 1.5 points instead of 1.
  • The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom.

 

This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it.

 

>>BLOW AWAY BALROG<<

Do dwarves put the number of squats we've done on the sheet or the squats times the multiplier?

In case Stars is asleep, the spreadsheet does the math.

 

Lovely functions!

Yes, I always build in the math!  So just enter reps.
