quarantine challenge: everesting your building
the concept of everesting was born in the cycling community as a time challenge, then spread among hikers, runners and other outdoors enthusiasts.
okay, this is very cool and funny, but how does it apply in times of quarantine? it's quite easy. do you remember my post about using the stairs of your building to workout? that's the idea. do the stairs of your building, or the internal ramps of your house as many times as necessary to cover a vertical distance of 8848 meters.
how many times do you have to climb the stairs? the math is quite simple: measure the height of a single stair of the ramp you're going to use, multiply by the number of stairs you're going to climb and you'll get the vertical distance you'll cover with a repetition. divide 8848 for the value of a single rep, and you'll get the number of reps needed to cover the total altitude of mount everest. if it's not clear, watch this little video tutorial:
there's no time limit. everyone has her own schedule, business and fitness level, so do it accordingly to your possibility. just try to be consistent, keep track of your progress and of the time you spend in it daily. it will be funny to calculate the total time taken to cover the whole challenge.
i created an event of facebook (in italian and in english) for the everesting quarantine challenge, it's here. there's also an image you can use to keep track of your progress and post on your social networks, download it from here if you want.
take part in the challenge and have fun.
would you ever think of using your quarantine time for a virtual expedition on the roof of the world?
