Here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed. Now, let’s dig in to the results! -- Note a few deviations from the typical post due to the post-holiday lack of submissions!
Each week, members who have opted to have their weights publicly displayed for the world to see have them graphed on the main blog. It is a great way to keep track over time, and it gives a bit more accountability to your workouts. If you are interested, leave a comment!
This week we welcome a new brave soul to the weight-graphing mix. Andrew has signed up to be publicly analyzed!
Anti-fat points (AFP) is a system designed to give some sort of value to each and every workout, regardless of type. It is based on metabolic-equivalent values out of the compendium of physical activities. Submit a workout, get AFP. Each week we post the totals for each person for the week. In addition, you may see the monthly AFP leaderboard on the right-hand sidebar. This is meant to be a fun way to encourage competition to see who can earn the most points!
The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!
The Chain Game is on hiatus this week to avoid breaking anyones chain that has not submitted due to travels/ snow storms/ drunken stupors. Check in next week!
The November Challenge
The November Challenge is once again missed this week, no worries though!
Each week we chart our cardio-based workout distances (no cycling included). This is a repost of last weeks map, which will be updated once more data trickles in over the course of the week.
Can I just say that I am so excited for New Year’s resolutions?! The gym will be packed, but it’ll be nice as everyone commiserates over their poor holiday choices. And maybe we can finally take down this challenge.
