Hello There! I apologize for missing a post yesterday . . . we had a major hardware failure yesterday that wiped out 48 TB of data... so I was preoccupied =)
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. Let’s see what data was submitted this week!
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!
I am happy to report I am back to the weight I was prior to the Boilermaker. I was pretty dehydrated afterward, and have been working hard to get my body back into a good state!
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 threshold is back to 100 AFP, Green is over and Red is under. Try to get 100 AFP and turn your bar green!
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!
As always, if you were slow to get data in, your chain will be re-instated!
