Following the success of the inaugural MVT Forum Fitness Challenge last summer, we will be running another Fitness Challenge beginning the week of 29 January.
For those not familiar with this event:
“Introducing the MVT Forum Fitness Challenge, a 6-week/6 event, friendly competition pitting MVT friends and alumni against each other. Our intent is to develop camaraderie, overcome physical challenges and build awareness around the importance of functional fitness. Remember, fit people are harder to kill! Complete all 6 weeks and earn a custom patch.
Here’s how it will work:
Each week on the forum, there will be a posted workout event thread along with supporting instructions and movement standards. You will be tested across broad fitness domains. You will have exactly 7 days to complete the workout (repeating is ok), submitting your best score, and providing “evidence” of completion. Ultimately, personal integrity and honor is a prerequisite, but evidence in the form of a post event photo and/or running app screenshot will help participants do the right thing. Failure to submit scores and evidence before the cutoff time will disqualify you from earning the patch, but you’re welcome to still participate.
For each week, your overall placement in that event will be your score for the week (1st place= 1 point, 2nd place= 2 points, etc.). At the end of the 6 weeks, we will announce the male/female with the lowest cumulative points as the overall winners along with winners by age group.”
i. Open: <35 years old
ii. Masters I: 36-45 years old
iii. Masters II: 46-55 years old
iv. Masters III: 56+ years old
The Updated Packing List:
-Rucksack/Backpack with (30# male/ 20# female)
-Sandbag or equivalent (40# male/ 30# female) (wood pellets, salt pellets, etc OK)
