Now we are into March, the 300 challenge is upon us once again! Please see the video (below) for exercise descriptions and demonstrations.
Just like last year, we’ll be having these categories again, “fitness” and “glory.” Additionally we are introducing the “all abilities” category to cater for those with injuries that limit them from performing the regular exercises. It’s a great way to push your fitness ahead, and compete with your fellow 4UBF awesomites. Please see below for the rules and let us know if you have any questions!
* Three categories this year “fitness”, “glory” and “all abilities”
* Times will only count in PT sessions or bootcamps
* The clock will not stop under any circumstance until the 300th total rep is finished
* If you finish in under 8 minutes in the “fitness” category, you will be encouraged to attempt the more challenging “glory” category unless there is competition between other competitors for podium positions.
* Everyone is encouraged to do at least one 300 drill, a second attempt is optional but only if the competitor agrees to do it again.
The “fitness” category is to just get through for the beginner to intermediate category. A total of 100 push ups, 100 jack knife sit ups, 50 jump squats, 50 burpees.
* Safe technique will be monitored by all trainers
The “glory” category is all about proper and very strict technique and guidelines. This is for the high end of the intermediate class and expert fitness levels. A total of 100 push ups (hip to fist) 100 jack knife sit ups (hands must get above the knee caps and feet must not touch the ground) 50 jump squats (90 degree angle squat) and 50 burpees (chest to ground burpees)
* If these standards are not met, the rep will not count and you will be forced to retake the rep for it to count.
The “all abilities” category has a number of alternative exercises if you cannot complete the required number of pushups, jack knives, jump squats or burpees.
Please see the video for all the alternatives.
