  1. Goju-Ryu Karate is totally legit. The most important choice you'll have to make when joining is if you want to learn Traditional (killing/maiming strikes and techniques) or Sport variations of the same. You remember what you practice. Ganbarimasu!
  2. Why does quitting smoking have to be so fucking difficult, I'm going a whole day without cigarettes and I find myself stuffing my face with gross ass food, and now I'm smoking a cigarette someone help.

      Wish I could help but I've never had or seen anyone quit smoking before. I just want to let you know that I wish my dad was doing what your trying to achieve. You can do it, you've already made up your mind your going to quit. I'm sure as with any addiction if you keep at it, it gets easier.

      I'm quitting as part of this challenge. I weened myself down to 3 cigarettes a day first, it has been much easier than the times I've tried before. If cold turkey isn't working try cutting back, that way when the cravings come tell yourself "I can have one "later". Now when a craving comes I tell myself "I'm NOT a smoker". There's no harm/shame in a nicotine replacement either. Try the gum or spray.

      Thanks for the advice everyone, and the motivation. I'm just so tired of paying for them when I could be spending that money doing fun active things like Parkour, or Martial Arts, instead of wasting 75-85$ a month on something that's physically killing me.

  4. Really like the style that's getting introduced there Nuala, or should I say, Dungeon Master.
  5. Thanks for all the support everyone, for real worst decision I ever made. I'm probably going to be doing a lot of griping about how difficult its been quitting. I'm going to need the support. @ Nuala (ZachAcid is now in the title.)

  7. Hey Phoenix, just remember when the weight comes off, and the foods not their, you are going to be you. The hardest adjustment I found losing weight was realizing that I look good, seriously if you look at your self with positive self image, others will look/think about you the same way. And obsessing over the weight loss is something I'm sure we've all done a few times.

      Yeah, I was taking the keeper spring (a very high max lb resistance coil) and it was fully tensed. So when I pulled it off it bit my pinky leaving an inch split on the skin and smashing the muscles in a split second. I'm really just hoping it doesn't get in the way of my BW training...

  11. I really felt like had I started at the beginning performing the six week mini challenges, I would have stayed a bit more motivated (plus I've run into a bunch of problems so I'm not able to take the time to train. What I liked about the mini challenges is they provide an activity even on the go! without being restricted by the workout program. I think, more challenges could be included, like pistol squats, frog stands, etc. Sorry I can't go into more detail, pressed for time! Really look forward to posting my results and starting the next six week challenge/mini-challenges!!!!!!
  12. For me there is a clear knowing when someone is older than their golden years and coaching you, because typically you go search these people out. But if I know your capability (age/size/fitness level) and you aren't willing to just drop down and go do it, or at least something of relative difficulty, then I don't think you have any business telling me what to do. Like my homie the other day was like, "I want to see you do 10 Schools." which means run the local High School 10 times while, running 10 laps around the track up and down the bleachers. I'm sorry but I'm not near the level of fitne
  13. I'm so glad I've learned about Ido Portal, and read this thread. This has been extremely informative, and during the next six-week-challenge I'm definitely going to include his exercises into my workout routine!

  16. Thank you so much for posting that, it was all very inspiring stuff, after watching some of the videos I've seen about it. Ido Portal's training should absolutely be included into a Parkour regimen. I'm still trying to cut off fat, while training the basic qualities of a traceur, once I get down to a certain body size, or achieve a specific level of fitness, then I'm going to "beef it up" with some of this much more complex training!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. As you can see I haven't been posting the last couple of days, I haven't lost my motivation, just had to spend a whole day making sure business got done, and a homie out of jail, literally he's been out of jail for 2 hours by this post, so back on the horse today!
  19. I feel you, when running is the worst thing you got in your arsenal, it takes time to improve and see gains. Initially like most working out the gains will be high, and you'll plateau if you don't throw variation into your workout.
  20. I'm with I-Jo and everyone else on this thread. Personally I was a 260+ lb guy when I really learned how to do a pull-up, and I learned it through P90X. No joke! And like I-Jo said, really the best way to do pull-ups (in my humble opinion) is to complete the entire motion, so your body learns the correct motion from the beginning. P90X had me put out a chair directly underneath the bar, using my leg to push-up any of the weight I couldn't pull, as the assisted pull-ups became easier I switched to advanced assisted pull-ups, you put the chair just at leg's length away, where you can comforta
  21. Right, and by the time he grows up those activities and food choices will be so ingrained in him, that it won't even be a difficult choice to be healthy. I just wish my parents had been taught as I've taught myself over the years.
  22. I have two policies about listening to what people have to say about fitness/nutrition: "If you can't do it, then I don't want to hear you telling me I should." This comes from many, many years of being coached (swimming/football/water polo). And having the converse applied (my coaches could at anytime perform the workouts they had us do, AND THEN SOME!) (And the lines I hate the most in the world) "Running is the only way to lose weight, and lifting is the only way to build muscle." Let me tell you as a swimmer/water polo player that has not been my experience, in fact I would venture to

  24. I'm with yah, not too long ago I took the longboard here to the store and ate it coming down a pretty nice hill (rock, lol.) Way to be though, your son won't even have to thank you for it, cause he won't even know he was overweight.
