CURRENT CHALLENGE !!!
On Wednesday (3/25/20) we're kicking off an "FU Covid-19 Social-distancing (FUCS) Fitness Challenge". Since our in-person plans to kick-off the season have been postponed (thanks a lot virus), we're gonna get the season started at-home in style.
Timing - The challenge kicks off Wednesday, March 25, and goes for 6 weeks, until Wednesday, May 6th.
Prizes/Awards - Stay posted for regular prizes. Awards with be given at the end of the challenge.
1) There are two components to the challenge: Footy Fitness (we'll do this in the blog tab above) & Nutrition (individual and optional). The goal is not only to stay active, but to refuel properly. You're encouraged to keep a log of your eating (if applicable) and your workouts in all 6 weeks. You can use a free app like myfitnesspal or just an old-fashioned notebook. You won't need to share your personal logs.
2) Fitness Component: For the fitness component, you are required to complete at least 4 daily exercise challenges each week and log a comment under each post you complete. A new exercise will be posted daily in the FUCS blog tab above (available by 10 pm the night before). Until we find a better method, just post your exercise results to the blog each day as a comment, even if it's just to say you did it...as a bonus, go ahead and include pictures and any other work you did to help motivate others! The exercises will be simple and are meant to be a supplement activity so it's a good start if you just need to get active again but will fit in well if you already have a regular workout/training routine.
3) Nutrition Component: If you want to make a personal goal here, now's a great time to do it. No need to share but if you want some accountability, we're here for ya! Starting a hardcore diet? Cool. Want to limit how much sugar you eat? Awesome. Just need to limit yourself to one fast food meal a day? Hey, these are crazy times and progress is progress!
