Epic Showdown Championship

What’s the GREATEST THING EVER?!?

 We need your help to decide!

We’ve put together a list of some of the best ideas and concepts the world has ever had.  Each week, they’ll be paired up to compete for the top spot in a single elimination tournament. 

Who wins?  You decide!

 

For each match-up, you’ll have the option to pick a side and fight to support it.  To do so, perform an exercise that meets that match’s criteria (each match is different, so be sure to check them all!) and log your contribution.  The winner for each match will be the team with the most points logged at the end of the week!

 

 

Basic Rules:

- This mini-challenge is open to any who wish to participate.  No sign-ups necessary, just add your name to the match you want to participate in, pick your side and start logging your reps!

- This mini-challenge will run through Dec 31st, when the champion will be declared the GREATEST THING EVER!!!

- Modifications for injuries or other physical issues will be provided on a case by case basis whenever possible.

- Each match will last for one week, but there may be more than one match running at a time.  Be sure to check all of them!

-For each match, you personal AMRAP (as many reps as possible) or AMSAP (as many seconds as possible) will be used to determine what exercise variants are appropriate. 

     -Please test your AMRAP/AMSAP when you begin the match if you’re unsure what difficulty is appropriate for you.

     -Once an appropriate exercise variant is chosen, you may perform as many or as few reps/sec per set as you’d like and rest as long between sets as you desire.  Your final contribution is the total reps/sec performed that week.

     -Suggestions for exercise variants can be found here, but you’re free to use any exercise that meets the match criteria (type of exercise and AMRAP/AMSAP range).

- If you have any questions, just ask!

 

 

Normal Mini-Challenge Rules:

- Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate.  

- Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals.

- If you're not sure how to register something, post it here.

- Keep it simple!

- Don't hurt yourself!

Clarification: Do you pick just one match per week or can you put your name down for more than one match?

Each person can participate in any, all, or no matches each week, as their time and interests dictate.  Though the "no matches" option sounds boring. :friendly_wink:

Oh hey! I'm already doing a bunch of these exercises as part of my personal challenge. :) Now I can rep for the glory of moles in aviator goggles.

So what would be the next level for Wallsits?  I can hold a normal one for about 60 seconds.

You can try one legged wall sits, weighted wall sits, wall sits with leg lifts, wall sits with torso twists, or anything else that sounds interesting and challenging!

Also leg lifts are we talking leg raises on Startbodyweight? 

Yep, same thing.  And you're not limited to that list, it's just a starting point. :friendly_wink:

Okay, so a question. If I'm posting my reps from my normal routine, and I do a minute rest between sets, do I count the all the reps or just the reps I do in 1 set with no breaks? If it's the latter, then I did this wrong and I'm-a hafta revise my entries. :wacko:

Nope, you got it right.  Log total reps of any exercise that meets the match's criteria (exercise type and AMRAP/AMSAP range).

I'm pulling for Nunchuck Moves to win it all!  Added my stats for all matches.  Probably won't be able to get anymore by Saturday though.  Hoping to get a chance to check in and push ahead on Saturday evening though.

Earlier in the week, I had been thinking that I'd love to participate in the mini, but I my challenge is pretty much all I can handle this month. "How will I also do whatever exercises are in the mini, when I am busy doing so many pushups and pullups?" Ha! That is at least two matches I can contribute to.

 

So this week (so far) is 50 40 pushups for moles with aviator goggles, and 100 68 pullups (and progressions) for "licking things to claim them as your own". My pushups are right in the target AMRAP range, and none of the pullup progressions I am doing are anywhere close to 10 reps. (Most aren't even 5, but I assume we can count harder variants.)

 

EDIT - Just realized I can't count the ones I did on week 0. Spreadsheet corrected.

I support the options you support. These are obviously the best things.

There was a car commercial I daw ages ago that had some guy mooning over a car in the dealer's lot, and then he sees the salesman walking over to the car with a woman, holding a contract. The guy looks panicked for a second, then he gives the car door a nice big lick and stands there with his arms crossed, all confident , like "Ha! it is my car now!"
