This August will be the 6th Forest Games. Start dialing in your nutrition, get your rest and get ready to see how much progress you've made. As you can see there will be a special "Rx" Winners shirt for those that podium in the Rx division.
Season 6 Begins on August 21st and will go until August 31st.
For the new folks here is a little background on the games:
Little background on the games: Since 2013 we have held the Forest Games every 4 months. Each year we will establish new workouts to be done every 4 months in order to test progress. We crown the top 3 men and women from each category, winners receive a shirt and will be added to our Winners Wall (coming soon). Categories: Rx, Competition, Performance, Masters 50 + and Fitness.
August 21st, is the first day of the Forest Games. We start with a rest day. We will still have classes all day so you may look ahead to a day you are likely not going to make it and get one of the workouts done ahead of time. Tomorrow, you may also come in and work on any skills you may need for the Forest Games, like rope climbing, handstand push-ups, double unders etc.
Couple rules about the games for the new folks. Whatever the lowest division of a workout you do will place you in that division overall. BUT, if you do a workout higher than your division you will be ranked higher than those that did it at your division. Example:
Let's say you do Tommy V at the Performance level, if you were to do Jerry Prescribed then you would still be in Performance level, but your ranking for the workout Jerry would be higher than the performance folks that did it at performance.
It's important that you post your results on the board next to the weight lifting platforms. They are broken down by divisions. Look ahead at the workouts and see which division you will likely fall into so that you put your name in the right division. If you do any of the workouts up a level be sure you indicate that on the board.
Here are the list of workouts and divisions. Note there are a couple programmed rest days, these are days for you to rest or to make up a workout you missed or will miss.
