Where can I find the rules for a contest I'm participating in?
We have a contest system which allows for configurable rules. In order to find the exact rules for your contest, you need to use the app to find the exact rules conserning the contest you are participating in.
After you have successfully joined a contest you can find it in the Myworkout GO mobile app by tapping in the main toolbar. From there you can navigate to "Leaderboard" where you will find the rules if you scroll to the very bottom of the page.
⚠️ If you don't see the contest icon in the toolbar, please read more about signing up for a contest.
👍 As a rule of thumb, only record activities that make you sweat so much that you would normally wear exercise clothes.
❤️ Take care of your teammates. This should be fun for everyone.
How do I get points?
- You get points for activities registered in Myworkout GO by training with it, re-registering or importing from connected third-party apps (Garmin, Polar, Fitbit).
- The team's score consists of team members' weekly activity scores.
- The contest might have a configurable limit for the maximum number of points per member per day. The exact limit you can find by navigating to the contest rules in the app.
- Since training intensity is important, you will get more points for high-intensity activity. 4x4 is one such activity.
- You get 1 point for every active minute, and you get 4 points for every minute with high intensity.
What are considered high-intensity activity?
There are multiple ways to record a workout with high-insensitivity activity. You can view the workout details to see how many high-intensity training minutes (HIT) you were awarded for your activity.
- Manually registering a 4x4 workout using the app. 16 minutes will be considered as high-intensity.
- Recording a 4x4 HIT-interval workout using the app. Every minute you have recorded during the high-intensity stages will be considered as high-intensity.
- Performing an activity defined as a walk or run with GPS data after having calibrating the app. Every minute where your activity is considered to be within the high-intensity zone will be considered as high-intensity.
- Performing an activity with heart rate data You have calibrated the app by
What are equalization points and how are they calculated?
- Suppose your team has fewer members than the other teams in the competition. In that case, you will receive extra equalization points each time you register an activity. For example, if you get 60 points while your team has six members and the largest team has eight, you will get 20 extra points to even out the score of the lacking members.
- Changing the membership of the participating teams can affect your equalization scores. In that case, we recalculate them for that week.
⚠️ We only count post-registrations that you register within 24 hours of completing them.
How do we choose a winner?
- At the end of each week (Sunday at midnight), we add up the team points and choose a weekly winner. Exercises that you have not completely registered and saved by then will be excluded from the results. Then all the points are reset and a new weekly match begins.
- When the competition is over, the winner is calculated according to the average ranking in the weekly matches.
