  1. I've noticed my upper chest hasn't really developed at all, and did a bit of looking around online for BW exercises to target the upper chest. The only thing I could find was a few mentions the decline push ups might help target the upper chest- But then found others saying that even these were more working the middle chest, not upper. I'm going to add decline push ups to my workouts as I should have progressed to them anyway, But was wondering if anyone had any advice on any other BW exercises that target the upper pecs/chest area?
  2. Hey! That is a really awesome link! So far I've really only played around with the roll a little bit- but if I can get that mostly down this challenge i'll be pretty happy! So far, my exercise is good! I've done 7 workouts, and only missed off day stretching once. Calories are a bit high at 1800, and 1700 averages per week. How ever I can have lower weeks in future weeks, and i do seem to be seeing pro-abs as it were, so I'm fairly happy! Pull ups I'm up to about 20 per a five set session, haven't tested my max reps in a row number yet. Meditation is good, all day except one, though the hour
  3. Hey! awesome first challenge! I'm starting to finally get into parkour this challenge as well! Which moves for beginners are you planning to focus on? I'm probably going to focus mostly on getting the roll down. though I'll probably experiment with a handful of vaults as well.
  4. Whoo! Started off strong with a good first two days! Now I just need to keep the momentum going!
  5. You'll be doing well if you manage to get down to 10-12% in only six weeks! By all means go hard for your goal, but just keep in mind it may turn out harder than you think! Those last couple of percentage points tend to get extra stubborn! Have you seen/read Anthony Mychals blog? http://anthonymychal.com/blog/ He comes from a back ground of being skinny fat, and has gotten well lean and built a pretty impressive physique! Might be worth checking out? Good luck with the challenge!
  6. Great goals! Getting stronger is such a great goal! It's just such a great feeling walking around and feeling like your body is strong, and capable enough that you can actually do things with it! good luck with that chimera!
  7. You're right, it wouldn't quite work for this project as nano needs to be fictional prose. But funny that you mention nanowrimo, as I was actually planning on life questing nano in the next challenge since it (almost) lines up! I'm quite excited to give it a go! I've known about it for a few years, but never gotten around to actually taking part!
  8. Ah, corgis! I see there is much wisdom here indeed!
  9. I've fluttered over from the Druids for this challenge. I'm not sure if I'm over here for good or if it I'll start dual classing it back and forth, but I expect to be here for at least a few consecutive challenges. I'm pushing my self rather hard this challenge. It will be the last time I have buckets of free time for a while and I really want to stuff done/started! Main Quest: Get leaner, stronger, fitter, more able. By the end of this challenge I will get my abs visible, I will be stronger, I will be more flexible, and more able at moving my body. Not the most focused main quest, but I'm t
  10. Wow, awesome! Sounds like things went rather well this challenge for you! 7pounds is awesome! We're there any other factors in that, or was it just from cutting out the sugar?
  11. Challenge summary: Main Quest Strength training twice a week. A++ I did quite well on this one, though possibly due to doi less well on the low calories goal- therefore I had more hi calorie days allowing me to workout more! Technically it averages out to 2.666 workouts a week And I got my push ups back up to four sets of 25 (I actually do four slight variations on the push up) so I'm very happy with that. Restricted caloric intake to average at 1500 a day. Not so great on this one. Maybe a C? Averaged out around 1800, so should have lost a little weight, but not grand amounts, but it's a s
  12. A bit premature maybe, but unless I accidentally eat thousands of calories this evening, then I think I'll be ok. Challenge summary: Main Quest Strength training twice a week.

  13. Still beating those pesky sugar sprites? Last week, so a great chance to really punch them in there sticky sweet little faces!
  14. This sounds like it's been an exciting challenge! Headed into phase three now for the final week?
  15. Week five: So the calories were a bit heavy at 1900 average, so I'm going to bleed these last two weeks together and make it 1500 or lower average over the two weeks (ie this week should be averaged at1000 a day) might throw in a fast day or two to make this more achievable. Want to go out on a strong note! Two and a half or three work outs, so that was good. Starchy veggies was ignored. So did poorly I imagine. And meditation was six days. I figured out last night that by the end of the challenge I will have spent nearly TWENTY HOURS meditating! That's crazy! And probably more than I've done
