  1. Question. For the dumbbell rows, I don't own a pair of dumbbells, so I was wondering if any of you can recommend a bodyweight only exercise that can do the same thing as rows?
  2. Sorry I'm late with the response. But glad to see a lot of you on here. Right now, I'm close to reaching my goal of running non-stop for 30 minutes straight. Then I want to train for the Lagoon Valley Half Marathon in Vacaville, CA. They have a 5K session which I'm going to start with running a 5K before I jump to the others. And just to clarify, I'm also looking to connect with experienced runners so I can pick some brains. The beginning runner search was so I can have a team that's on the same level as me running wise. But every Jedi needs a Jedi Master. Hope we can keep this going.
  3. Hey guys. I need to add some more people on my friends list. Since I'm into running, I would love to add beginner and experienced runners. I would love to get to know y'all and pick some brains one time.
  4. BTW, I sent you a friend request. I read your journey in the blogs! Awesome work bro! Keep up the good work!
  5. So far I've been running 3 days a week and do Calisthenics on my off days to help become a better runner. I would also lime to incorporate yoga into this. Do any of you do that? And if so, how?
  6. Hey NF'ers, I plan on going back to the Beginner Bodyweight Workout routine, however, I was wondering if anybody can suggest an alternative to the dumbbell rows? The reason being is because I don't have any equipment, plus I want to start off with no equipment. Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Thank you both. I've posted my challenge in the Recruit section! Glad to be a part of it.
  8. ashotofadrenaline.com is where I've been going. The owner, Todd, gives good tips and has workout plans you can try. I'm currently doing the "Complete 90-Day Workout" plan and it's intense. You do 3 weeks of upper body, lower body and core exercises, rest the 4th week, then the next month, you do different exercises. Since going back to the bodyweight, I learned that you have to switch up your routines to keep the intensity going. But I'm open to more suggestions as well.
  9. Over here! Hope to connect with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ!
  10. Hello, My name is Jerome aka romeyb76 or simply, "Rome". I was born and raised in San Jose, CA but currently reside in Vacaville, CA. I'm happily married and a father-to-be. I've have a love/hate relationship with fitness because I wanted to get fit for superficial reasons such as having a nice body that people can admire and using it to find happiness. The methods I used to get there were spreading myself thin with trying to do multiple things to accomplish my goal and failing on eating plans constantly. Well, I lived that lie for too long and I finally have my priorities straight. After reading all the blogs on here, I discovered the one physical activity that I love doing which is running. So now my goals are focused on that and that alone. I want to become a stronger runner and as a father-to-be, I would like to be fit enough to chase my kid around without gassing out so quickly. Now, I enjoy building strength with calisthenics, and going on runs at least 2-3 times a week and I'm taking each process slowly. Instead of beating myself up for not getting the forms right, I just learn from my mistakes and do better the next time. I'm an IT Support Analyst which is something I really love doing but I have a passion for Web Development, and I'm working one day at a time to work in that field. Just wanted to say hello again and looking forward to meeting each and every one of you!

    Is your overall quest achievable (over a short or long period of time)? Yes! Is it reasonable? Yes! Do your 3 quests all build towards your main quest in little ways, or are you taking on too much? Do your quests have sub-quests or is it just one thing to focus on? For the most part, I do have huge goals for my life, health and career, but because I've tried to do too much in the past, I'm going to focus on making sub-quests to help me achieve the bigger picture. This way, I'm not bored, overwhelmed or not seeing any results. Are your main goals realistic? Can you scale them to smaller steps to fit your life better, even if it will make it take a little longer to achieve them? Yes, and that's why I'm here, to learn how to scale them into smaller steps. I lived up to unrealistic standards and I'm over that now. Are your goals able to be measured and tracked? What will you use to track them? Yes, I'm going to end my love/hate relationship with MyFitnessPal and use it to track my workouts. How are you grading your goals? Are they pass/fail (“every dayâ€, “not even once over the six weeksâ€)? Is there a reward for the effort, or are you only grading yourself on whether or not you “lose the weight†or “run the distanceâ€? I'm going to reward myself based on effort but I'm not sure how I'm going to do it yet. What is your plan for continuing/altering/grading those goals if you become ill or injured? To rest back to full health since I'm almost 40 and focus on the diet. Did you take into consideration any special occasions (Labour Day, Independence Day, birthdays, anniversaries, etc) that may occur during the challenge? What modifications do you need to build into your goals for those? Either workout early in the morning or sub another day. Do any of your main goals conflict with each other? Will one goal make it hard to do another? It's possible, but I'm going to work on balancing them out. Do you already have the time in your schedule to actually complete the goals you’ve set? If not, what are you planning to do to make time for them? Yes and I plan on maintaining a schedule. Are you trying to build multiple habits, or is all your energy focused on your main quest? I'm trying to build habits that I can adopt as a lifestyle. If I could watch TV or play video games consistently, then I can limit those and work on practical lifestyle habits.
  12. I restarted DVD Pack 1 from the beginning a couple months ago because I did it almost a year without an HRM and didn't see the results. Ever since I got an HRM, and started focusing on good form, I've lost 12 lbs so far! I love it! I kind of killed myself by adding calisthenics with it too soon. But right now, I'm only focused on the DDPYOGA and will use that to get stronger. You have to follow the DDPYOGA eating plan or the Paleo Diet in order to see results.
  13. DDPYOGA does a body good!
