The Turducken Games are back for year 2!

We invite all current and former Terminus members to compete in this friendly partner competition! The competition will be held on Saturday November 12th from 8am-12pm. The competition will be made up of 3 scored events + a surprise floater event. There will be an Rx division and a scaled division! You pick the division, we pick your partner! The Top 3 teams from each category will compete in a final workout as well! Cost to sign up is $10 plus a non perishable food item to be delivered to the free fridge in EAV before Thanksgiving. Top podium spots will be competing for a chance to win a Turkey! If you do not wish to compete, but still want to participate, we would love to have you as a volunteer!

8 quick competition tips:

  1.  Eat a sufficient amount of food the day before competition. Consider increasing nutrient dense carbs a bit more than you normally eat.
  2. Hydrate the day before competition and on competition day. Drink a minimum of 64oz water. Consider adding electrolytes.
  3. Get a good night’s sleep. Start winding down by 9:30. Lights out by 10pm.
  4. Do not eat or drink anything out of the ordinary on competition day. Stick to the norm. Eat a sufficient breakfast and do not do anything weird like experiment with pre-workout for the first time.
  5. Short workouts require a longer warmup. If it’s a sprint workout, make sure you’ve gotten your heart rate high and worked up a good sweat. Longer workouts require less warm-up time but make sure your body is loose and you’ve talked through strategy with your partner.
  6.  Immediately following each workout, make sure you cool down at about 50% effort for at least 5 minutes. This will allow your body to be more fresh for the next workout.
  7.  Plan to eat something with protein and carbs within 20 minutes after each event. Eat/drink a little bit, even if you don’t feel hungry.
  8. Enjoy the day! Nerves are good. Be proud of yourself for doing something challenging.
