okay, this is kind of inspired by a 'rl' challenge that a few friends were doing here. they were doing a challenge to reach 1000 reps, but it only included push ups, pull ups, sit ups, squats and lunges. i asked if we couldn't add back extensions or even just all reps - this kind of challenge encourages strengthening the front of the body and ignoring the back. i was vetoed, so i'm not doing their challenge. here is my idea for our challenge:
1) 1000 reps per week 2) a rep is any positive action 2) a) any physical rep (push up, sit up, shoulder press, etc.) counts as 1 2) b) every 200m walked/run or 500m cycled counts as 1; every 100 m rowing/swimming also counts as 1 2) c) every healthy meal/snack counts as 1 2) d) every 5 minutes yoga/meditation count as 1 3) no more than 500 from any one activity (i.e. you cannot do 1000 squats. do 500 squats and get the rest of the points from other activities.)
what do you think? do you like this idea? suggestions?
