2015, P2, Challenge Week In Class Results

Disclaimer:  Use your best judgment during these workouts.  Go at your own pace.  If you need to rest, take a break or drink water, do it.  It’s o.k.  Remember form is always first.  Do not sacrifice form for speed.  These challenges are not that important, your long term health & safety is.  These are fun & challenging workouts that you’ve been prepared for over the last few weeks and are designed to yield maximum results in short periods of time if you’re following the nutrition & cardio plan.  You may need additional caloric consumption, water, stretching/rolling, naps and/or rest on these days.  Take it, its o.k.




Instructions

Challenges may consist of completing a certain number of reps, rounds, distance, speed or load, a certain number of reps, rounds, distance, speed or load in a certain amount of time or training for a certain period of time.

CYBBC In Class Challenges are modeled after biathlons and triathlons in which you have either 2 legs (swim & bike, swim & run or bike & run) or 3 legs (swim, bike & run) respectively with timed transitions in b/w each leg.

There can be team, partner and individual challenges.  A team challenge requires all of the teammates to work together to beat the challenge.  More fit team members are usually asked to do more work to help the less fit team members.  A team challenge is extremely fun, rewarding and difficult and develops camaraderie amongst participants as you support and encourage one another while training alongside one another.

A partner challenge is where 2-3 partners work together to beat the challenge.  Sometimes partners train at the same time, sometimes one partner works while the other rests and/or counts.  At all times both partners are encouraging and supporting one another.

An individual challenge means you train by yourself and work to beat the challenge.  A unique aspect of an individual challenge is once you’re done, you’re done and you don’t have to keep training whereas in partner challenges or team challenges you keep training until your partner(s) or team complete the challenge.  Individual challenges are great for travel or at home workouts and for those who get a tremendous sense of accomplishment by beating the challenge and are motivated by the potential to finish early.

Reps based challenges require you to complete a certain number of reps in a certain amount of time.  You can go in any exercise order and do any amount of reps per set that you choose.  This is great for when you have strong exercises and weak exercises.

Weak exercises should be done 1st while your freshest and strong exercises towards the end of your order.

Rest periods can be taken at any time.  If you need to rest, use the bathroom or have a sip of water, take it.  Do your best to train continuously without rest as this gives you a better chance of beating the challenge, but know you can rest at anytime.

Hoo-Rahs!  When you finish the challenge shout out a loud “Hoo-Rah!” to let everyone including yourself know you finished the challenge.  If you beat the challenge, let out another Hoo-Rah!  Each time you finish all the reps for an exercise in a reps based challenge, say “Hoo-Rah!”  Each time you finish a leg in the challenge, say “Hoo-Rah!”.

Rounds based challenges must be completed in order and all reps for an exercise must be completed before moving on to the next exercise.  A6 rounds + 3 exercise description of a challenge means your goal is to complete 6 rounds and the 1st 3 exercises and all reps associated with those exercises in the next round.

Recording data is helpful for you to keep track of how many reps, rounds, distance, speed or time you’ve completed.  You must keep track of the time in which you complete a leg of your CYBBC challenges as well as the time you finish and/or beat the challenge.  Once you complete a leg of a challenge and record your time, immediately move on to the next challenge.

Exercise Order means the order in which you are supposed to do the exercises.  For example, A1 mean’s do this exercise first.  A2 means’ do this exercise second.  A3 means, do this exercise 3rd, … B1 means do this exercise after completing all reps, rounds or time for “A1, A2, A3…”exercises in previous circuit.

When an exercise is to be held for time and if you don’t have access to a chrono timer, keep track by counting “Mississippi’s”.

A round = 1 circuit of a certain number of exercises.  Example:  A1, A2, A3…A7 are the exercises in a circuit.  Complete all reps for each respective exercise from A1-A7 in the circuit = 1 round.

When you finish a challenge, post your results to our facebook page to share with your friends.  Post your results here:  facebook.com/ChangeYourBodyBootCamps.Newton.Ma
