Default Thor versus Crom

We need to get this challenge moving again. Last time around it failed because:

A) We couldn't agree of challenges.
B) When we did more and more people stopped doing them.

No hard feelings of course. Perhaps we were just doing too many.

Anyone have suggestions for handling challenges from here on out?

Perhaps everyone competes as a team and individual? Top 3 each week accrue points towards a yearly individual and team winner?


Thoughts?

Yep, I like that idea; team challenge but still on an individual level as well.

1 challenge a month, shouldn't interfere with anybody's training and anyone that feels it will should just not put their names down for the teams. No challenge will be longer than 10 minutes in duration, which makes it easier to fit in.

Challenges could start on the 1st of the month, so that the end date is easier to remember as well...more clean cut that way.

I nominate Babs for challenge President.

Suggestions a.) make sure that the challenges are doable both in a homegym and commercial gym. b.) Maybe you can break the individual comps up by the breakdowns in the PL League.

Simple challenges - check.
Challenges that aren't time consuming - check.

Perhaps we can compile a list, have people vote on them, and choose 10 for the rest of the year.

I'll toss out one possible challenge:

Plank....longest time. I doubt most of us will get past a couple minutes.

I'd be happy to let her run this but don't want to pressure her. If interested it's all hers.
