i'm not sure - shall we say a point for every 2 minutes of an intense class (like zumba) and maybe 1 point for every 5 minutes of a less intense class?

i was thinking that people could post here with their progress, and what they've done for the points... it would be nice to see the different ways people can get to 1000

also, it would be 1000 per week. it could be nice at the end of each week to realize that we've done 1000 good things for ourselves.

Hi Zoe

What's the score for 60mins Dance Lesson (I get sweaty!!)
for 60 mins Zumba
for 60 mins Aqua Aerobics
for 60 mins Boxing Class

Just asking how to score these - eg in a combo class, lose count of reps :( while focussing on form and keeping in time to the music

Sounds good! How do you propose we add it onto here. Per exercise/action and then post. Or do we add it by ourselves and then post. Also - what is the time frame for the 1000 reps. Day, week, month??


Thanks!

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?
