the brothers and i have decided to embark on a first quarter fitness competition. Â should make the first quarter more interesting.
Sibling Rivalry Classic
Goal: To get an otherwise out of shape group of Kendall siblings intoÂ a virile, vibrant, and vivacious state of health.
To win: Winner must win two of the three criteria specified below. Â Losers will pay $100 each to the winner. Â No second place. Â In theÂ case of a three way tie (ie, all three win one of the three criteria),Â a run-off will be held in which all three criteria will be measured,Â executed in sequence. Â An unnamed third party will measure theÂ execution of the criteria and provide the final ruling.
Begin date: 1/1/2009 12:00AM (tonight @ midnight)
Target date: 3/31/09 with criteria measurement on 4/4/09 (weekend)
Â 1) Fastest one mile run
Â Â Â – Run will be recorded on a treadmill for equal comparison
Â Â Â – Second mile of a run; this will allow a 1 mile warm up at anyÂ speed and avoid any of us hurting ourselves
Â 2) Push-ups
Â Â Â – Two criteria: 1) Number of push ups in 1 minute and 2) NumberÂ of push ups to exhaustion
Â Â Â – Criteria #1 will be measured on 4/4
Â Â Â – Criteria #2 measured on 4/5
Â 3) Crunches
Â Â Â – Crunches will be measured based on number of crunchesÂ performed in 2 minutes
Â – No performance enhancing substances (Creatine, etc.)
Â – No trainers, paid or otherwise
