Contest Contest: The Contest!

Posted By Mark Sisson On September 19, 2010 @ 8:00 am In Health Challenges | 145 Comments

The Prize:

Praxis. In the department of simple/versatile, Praxis unrolls and attaches to a door, tree, fire escape, or anything else to give you six anchor points for your resistance bands. And yes, I’m talking to you P90Xers out there and anyone else who has been snapped in the face trying to jury rig a resistance band to a portable pullup bar in an over-sized door frame.The folks at Praxis have set up a special landing page for MDA readers [7], complete with a exercise video and $10 discount + $10 flat rate shipping. Winner will receive both the Praxis [8] and a heavy resistance band.

But why stop at one resistance band.  Enter today’s second prize, the Rubberbanditz [9]. It’s a package of resistance bands, door straps, handles, and carabiners; this is the second year running I’ve featured this little bag-o-resistance. Maybe it’s the charm of Ari’s video, but give me these over the mass-marketed “Biggest Loser” branded bands any day.

The Contest:

Last year’s challenge saw a few interesting [10] and unusual [11] contests with fairly successful results. While I’ve still got a few tricks up my sleeve for upcoming original contests as well as the return of a favorite [12], I’ve got a spot left for one more. And you get the chance to tell me what that contest is. In the comments section of this post, leave an idea for a cool Primal contest. If your idea is good enough, along with winning the above prizes, your contest may be featured later in the challenge! A few guidelines:

  • Should in some way or another support an idea about Primal living.
  • Anyone in the world should be able to enter (i.e. no contests just for New Yorkers or just for red headed people)
  • Shouldn’t take too much time for an average person to complete.
  • I already have three open video contests. Unless the idea is pure brilliance, it is very unlikely that I will add a fourth.

To give you a concept of fringe contest ideas, the “Give-a-stranger-steak Day” and “Vegetable Swimwear” contests were both eventually struck from this year’s roster, but (as some of you know) the secret Grok Tattoo and Grokpose [13] contests made it through just fine.

The Deadline:

September 20, 8:00 am PST. 24 Hours!

Who is Eligible:

New Yorkers, redheads, and everyone else.

How a Winner Will Be Chosen:

I’ll pick one.
