Hello Drow!

 

Here is the anticipated Drow Challenge information.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.  In order to get as many people interested as possible, there are several categories available to win.  There will be a $20 buy in to participate.  Winners in each category will split the total amount of money collected.  This is an honor based system, so please respect each other and post accurate information.

Categories:

Weight loss

Cardio improvement (1.5 mile run)

Strength improvement (pushups)

 

We are going to use % based loss/gains to determine winners in each category.  This is to keep it as fair as possible to each person.  For example.  If I weigh 180lbs and my end weight is 160lbs, then I weigh 88.89% of my original weight, so my % lost is 11.11%.  Same principle applies to strength (bench press) and cardio (1.5 mile run). 

Please vote above if you want data to be public or private.  If there is one person who wants data to be private, then everyone’s will be.  Only Drow Core will see the data if it is private to ensure no favorites are perceived.  We want to make this a fun competition that also is a healthy benefit. 

The event will start on 1 May.  If you sign up, I need you to send me your starting stats on 1 May, and paypal me the money by 1 May (aretzdt@gmail.com).  The event will end on July 31st.  Winners will be announced that following week. 

If you want to participate, but have concerns about this friendly competition please let me know before the start date so we can work through them.  Thanks all and goodluck!

 

Cheers,

Tile

Felt like pushups was the more gender/other factors neutral benchmark to use, but if people wanting to compete in that category come to a unanimous decision for bench press (or squats or deadlift or whatever you want) then we can swap that up.

Measured number per time?

 

Just wondering since it said pushups in the list and benchpress in the description.

Apologies on the confusion in that.  The strength event can be anything we want as a guild.  Pushups just seemed the overall best choice for the most people.  It would be most pushups in 60 seconds, or if people get really crazy, two minutes :)

 

Either way, I'm up for any event we all agree on

Well, if it makes your conscience feel better, you can compete in the other two categories.  Personally, I don't mind if you compete in all three still.

I could do the strength competition but I don't really have a means of buying in. So I'll just do it alongside whoever else does it but be ineligable.

You can try, but I get the feeling you're just as bad at pushups as you are shoes.

Look under Drow Members, everyone who's said they're participating should have access.

Would it be easier to use some app to track the cardio?

Just the time it takes to run 1.5 miles.  You can use an app, your watch, whatever makes it easier.  I trust everyone!
