NINJA "SPIRIT" WEEK CHALLENGE
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
Wednesday, May 11th through Tuesday, May 17th
Points for each are all or nothing with the exception of “R”!!! However, even if you do not reach the points required for an individual letter, you still should track your daily challenges as usual because your daily points will still be counted towards participation.
S – STEP IT UP on Thursday by completing at least 10 STEP IT UP options (each option can be done more than one time) = 10pts.
P – Post at least 5 times this week = 10pts.
I – Integrate strength into your routine by completing at least two 24/7 GYM options or five JAMs on Wednesday = 10pts.
R – Reconcile your calories in with your calories out by posting each Friday through Monday on our team thread = 10pts. per day
I – Intensify your cardio by completing 1/4 of your remaining LCW 6-week cumulative pledge minutes on LCW Tuesday (5/17) = 10pts.
T – Treat yourself to 20 bonus points by earning a perfect score on the above components!
NINJA BONUS (NB) = Add another 25pts. to your score if you burned more calories than you took in on Friday through Monday AND stayed in your calorie range all 4 days!
S = (__/10) P = (__/10) I = (__/10) R = (__/40) I = (__/10) T = (__/20) NB = (__/25) TOTAL = (____/125)
“R” Clarification: You will need to count the calories that you consume on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday; tally your calories burned including the calories you burn at rest - a link is provided below so that you can determine your basal metabolic rate (BMR); AND post these two numbers on our team thread to earn the 10pts. each day.
BMR CALCULATOR: health.discovery.com/centers/
Note: If you didn’t notice, the S is the Thursday STEP IT UP challenge; the first “I” is the Wednesday 24/7GYM-JAM challenge; the “R” is the weekend challenge; and the second “I” is the Tuesday LCW challenge. You can get the challenge details for each individual challenge in the NINJA CAMP challenge forum. Here is the link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/t
Please still post your challenge totals in your tracking thread as we have done in the past. You may also want to add a spot to log your posting. You will then be able to use this information when adding your SPIRIT challenge totals. Here is how you will track in your tracking post:
WE = How many points did you earn from JAMs (x2pts. per JAM) and 24/7 options (x5pts. per option – up to 15pts.)?
TH = How many STEP IT UP points did you earn? Note: I REVISED THESE OPTIONS AGAIN!!!
WEEKEND = CALORIES IN / CALORIES OUT POSTED EACH DAY
TU = How many minutes did you do for your LCW (last chance workout)?
POSTING: What days did you post on our team thread? If you do not want to track this, you can sparkmail me at the end of the week, and I can give you the number of days you posted because I track this every week for every Ninja.
SPIRIT = S = (__/10) P = (__/10) I = (__/10) R = (__/40) I = (__/10) T = (__/20) NB = (__/25) TOTAL = (____/125)
NOTE: If you post your challenge totals each day as soon as you complete the challenges, your SPIRIT calculations will be a lot easier at the end of the week, and it will make it easier for me when we are competing against other teams on various challenges throughout the week
