The Inman Mile....place a straight bar across your shoulders loaded with 1 1/2 times your bodyweight and take it for a mile long walk without placing it on the ground.

Sounds simple, but I remember reading that only one person has been able to complete it using a bar....

How about planning the challenges around the seasons - running, Inman mile, etc.... during the summer/fall months for those of us that live where winter means ice and snow? Perhaps MUx20, C&J bwtx15, clapping pullups, etc... during the winter?

So far we've had calisthenics (pull-ups) gymnastics (hand-walking), and weightlifting (overhead squats). Moreover, all of these have been endurance contests to some extent (40 reps, 100' - ah, I was so close!), 15 reps with bodyweight.

How about a metabolic contest, with an emphasis on speed - a 40, 100, 200, or 400 meter dash?

what about weighted PUs???? That way you have wts & gmynastic stuff... Say max #PU @ BWT plus 50 to 75% BWT in 5 minutes.

I think John Allstadt had a Physical Badass scale in his article on Pullups in a Dragon Door article under the body weight exercises.. anyway 200% BWt x5 was enough to qualify as a Physical Bad *** ie BWT plus 100% tied onfor 5 reps. Also 5 OAPUs & ? 45 reg PUs seemed to qualify also..so take any one of the three or be a pluperfect Bad *** & do all three

David,

I too like the idea of weighted pullups and OAPUs...I'm just hoping that these kinds of possible challenges might surface for the winter months (it's much warmer in the basement than outside during January in Wisconsin!)

Good point Kelly ...also its pretty dark @ 0600 in the winter so that would be a good time to do most of your WODs inside.We dont have a lot of snow ever here in SC but I do like to work out before making rounds @ the hospital.

I like the evaluation and suggestion made by Ross, so far. Other possiblities could include a certain number of wall-ball shots, double-unders or box jumps within a certain amount of time.

My two cents,

Ryan

I still like the idea of a pure strength challenge - 1RM OHS @ 1.5xBW :proud:
