  1. Oh, LAWD yes! To both Mass Effect's brain-sucking power and to leftward cartwheels. Going right, I feel like my trunk alignment is pretty much vertical but I still need to work on keeping my legs straight in an aesthetically pleasing way, but going left I have a lot of trouble getting my butt to line up with my shoulders. I take some low res phone videos to check myself and make certain to erase them after I’ve made some mental notes. No one needs to see that... As for Mass Effect, I’ve had to set up a reward in HabitRPG to charge myself gold for time playing. I haven’t been hit this hard since Knights of the Old Republic 2! o0 Rendering is indeed a richly mysterious work of magecraft! Behold, the transformation from this: to this: I did that one myself, but waiting for my “computer†(actually an 8†windows tablet) to process that image took more than 12 hours and generated a lot of heat that probably wasn’t healthy for my CPU; hence the sub-contracting. --- Turns #3 and #4: Too quiet... Artillery Ape: 8/8 (Prop-free skills training sessions) Gatling Raptor: 0/6 (Prep 1+ build for Repubrick.com) Phantom Mantis: 27/28 (Mindful Coffee) The S.W.A.R.M.: 28/28 (Complete all HabitRPG Dailies) Sit-Rep: Okay, so last week was kind of crappy, but once again the simplified nature of this challenge saved my bacon. I missed a mindful coffee at some point, and had a few days where I debated with myself over whether I had done enough to justify claiming the point, but in all cases I chose to judge in my favor; the point of the exercise, I think, is to just sort of make a quick check-in to ground myself in whatever I’m doing, so there’s no benefit in obsessing over whether I’d hit some arbitrary mindfulness quotient or something. Don’t let that 0/6 fool you, I’m actually making progress with Gatling Raptor even though I don’t have anything officially posted. I expect that I will end up posting all 6 sets in one sitting, so it’s really just a matter of making sure that happens before the end of week 6. I’ve got the basics of a plan for next challenge written out, though it’s likely that I’ll make a change or two between now and then. I’m trying to come up with stuff that’s a bit more ambitious than this challenge without going overboard (who, me? Never!). I’m in another one of those prolonged slumps of just feeling extremely tired and unmotivated and prone to injury - nothing major, just some little complaints that I know I need to pay attention to so they don’t balloon out of control. To cope with all of this, I’ve given myself permission to back off of my accessory work and focus on what’s most important: strength training, rope dart playtime, and recovery.

Also, I strained my hands a bit on yesterday's FT planks, so needed a day off from that in particular. 7/1 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: 1-Arm Incline Fingertip Planks (table) 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Nerdwarts Cram School! 40% AMRAP 13 Pushups 20 Lying Knee Tucks 10 Horizontal Row (bent legs) 16 Bulgarian Split Squat Done as a circuit, rest as needed. -5:00 Myofacial Release (tennis ball, mobility peanut, roller, etc.) -10:00 meditation Slept better last night than I have in a week - a good start, but I still only managed one round of cram school. Hands still hurt, so grip training is on hold. 7/2 - 7/4: Rest Days. Bonus, because it's a holiday weekend. ^^ Hurray for American independence!
  3. A little of both - I tried 3 sets of 50%, but that was more taxing than I thought it needed to be, so I back down to 40% and liked it. I think more experimentation is needed, though. My intuition is that getting the most out of this system would require daily rep totals that are higher than the AMRAP score, though I doubt that it would matter much how one gets there. 3x50%, 4x30%, 3x40%, 5x25%, etc would probably all be valid as long they didn't cause too much fatigue. My plan is based on GtG, but I train it all in one session rather than spreading it out through the day (like I do for the explosives), so 3x40% "feels like a workout", but doesn't leave me too tired to do anything else and only takes about 10-12 minutes, including 1-2 minute rests between rounds of the circuit. It's one of those "how little can I get away with doing, and still see results?" kind of things. ^^; It's worth mentioning that I'm fairly prone to burnout for a variety of reasons both personal and physiological, so I would imagine that someone with a higher work/recovery capacity could probably do significantly more reps/day and make greater gains from it. Feel free to be the guinea pig for that one, bro. ^^
  4. 6/21 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: 1-Arm Incline Fingertip Planks (table) 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Chapue de Couro (with rope dart!) Nerdwarts Cram School: TESTING DAY 31 Pushups (+5) 42 LyingKnee Tucks (+8) 23 Horizontal Row (bent legs) (+5) 33 Bulgarian Split Squat (+6) rest as needed. -5:00 meditation Ouch.... That was the most painful success I've had in a long time!! 40% AMRAP seems to be a good practice level for me - it's easy to recover from, doesn't take a lot of time and clearly got me the results I was after. W00t! 6/22 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Max Hold: Vert.

Done as a circuit, rest as needed. -5:00 meditation Cut some things short today because I was feeling lazy and unmotivated. Not a good reason, but to my credit at least I established a base-line "half-ass" standard to cling to rather that just check out and leave it all undone. That counts for... something? Maybe? ^^; 6/24 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Vert. Hang 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Clapping Pushups -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Macaco (capoiera/bdance) Monk Stops Time (rope dart) Nerdwarts Cram School! 40% AMRAP 12 Pushups 17 LyingKnee Tucks 9 Horizontal Row (bent legs) 13 Bulgarian Split Squat Repeat 3x.

Should be back to normal tomorrow, guessing from how it feels now. Glad I did my strength work first today! 6/25 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: 1-Arm Incline Fingertip Planks (table) 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Macacos Nerdwarts Cram School! 40% AMRAP 12 Pushups 17 LyingKnee Tucks 9 Horizontal Row (bent legs) 13 Bulgarian Split Squat Repeat 3x.

  5. Thanks, Rowan! As long as I can keep the hideously mutated giant insect-people from laying their eggs in my food cache, I'm all good. ^^ --- Upgrades Turn #2: Maintain your position. Artillery Ape: 4/4 (Prop-free skills training sessions) Gatling Raptor: 0/6 (Prep 1+ build for Repubrick.com) Phantom Mantis: 14/14 (Mindful Coffee) The S.W.A.R.M.: 14/14 (Complete all HabitRPG Dailies) Sit-Rep: Still nothing officially uploaded to Repubrick, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not working on it! I’ve been figuring out how I want to package the instructions, what I want to include in each “set†(things like variants, weapons, accessories, etc.), and then I have to set up the cover image and get the file to the admin guy at Repubrick so that he can do some magic rendering to make it prettier. I’ve got three sets that are at least mostly through this process, and I intend to have three more finished by the end of week 3, then I’m home free! Everything else is going pretty well. I think I’m seeing some improvements in my cartwheels thanks to the Artillery Ape (though they are still embarrassingly bad), and on the days when I get to spin my dart it’s been fun to try integrating it into some of the acro moves. Mindful Coffee remains, more often than not, not-coffee, but that’s okay with me. Have you ever really paid any attention to what it’s like to brush your teeth? Focusing on the things your gums feel while getting cozy with a sonicare is a completely unique experience that I highly recommend. I need to make some time to be more active on the forums... I’ve been super busy with junk around the house, so whenever I get a little me-time I’ve been blowing it on Mass Effect. I can’t say that I “regret†that choice, but there are others things I could be doing instead.
  6. Okay, so things are starting to calm down a bit at home (hopefully they'll stay that way!), so I'm going to tentatively plan on getting my crap back together for this week. I did some reflecting over the weekend and realized that I'm just not enjoying the CC-inspired strength program that I've been working with for the past couple of months - I'm just not seeing teh gainzorz, and I don't really like working that close to the red-line because it makes it hard for me to do all of the other things that I need to do everyday. To help things along, the current Guild Mini Challenge is all about getting your reps up on certain moves, so I'm going to go back to the sub-max training that I found so effective at that over the winter. Here's the protocol: I'm going to prototype this starting NOW, and I'll fine-tune as needed. --- 6/14 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Max Hold: Vert. Hang 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Pop-ups -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Sunrise and Variations + target practice Nerdwarts Cram School: TESTING DAY 26 Pushups (+2) 34 LyingKnee Tucks (+4) 18 Horizontal Row (bent legs) (+2) 27 Bulgarian Split Squat (+3) rest as needed. -5:00 meditation Not bad, considering I barely worked out last week and went into this session feeling pretty ragged! AMRAPS ahoy! 6/15 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: 1-Arm Incline Fingertip Planks (table) 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Chapue de Couro (capoeira) -5:00 Myofacial Release (tennis ball, mobility peanut, roller, etc.) Nerdwarts Cram School! 50% AMRAP 3x13 Pushups 3x17 LyingKnee Tucks 3x9 Horizontal Row (bent legs) 3x13 Bulgarian Split Squat Done as a circuit, rest as needed. -10:00 meditation "Studies" completed in 14:25. This was a little more tiring than I remember this kind of training being, so tomorrow I'll try lowering the volume to 40% and see how that feels. It doesn't help that I'm still a little stiff from yesterday. 6/16 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Vert. Hang 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Clapping Pushups -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: More Sunshine, and variations Nerdwarts Cram School! 40% AMRAP 10 Pushups 14 LyingKnee Tucks 7 Horizontal Row (bent legs) 10 Bulgarian Split Squat Repeat 2x, Done as a circuit, rest as needed. -10:00 meditation Skipped one round of Cram School due to time constraints.

Maybe my rope isn't smooth enough...
  7. So, here's why I keep using missions like The SWARM: Last night I really really wanted to skip a couple of my tasks - nothing big, just a few little housekeeping duties at work - and I thought "you know what? Screw it. I'm going to take the hit and just let them side." Then I remembered the SWARM... it was easy to lose a few HP in habitrpg, but losing an easy point in the challenge ON TOP of that was just to much negative reinforcement for my taste. Synergy! It's brutal. ^^
  8. Let’s have a look and see, shall we? â€I am a single bulle- WHAT THE HELL!?†Turn #1: Blindsided Artillery Ape: 2/2 (Prop-free skills training sessions) Gatling Raptor: 0/6 (Prep 1+ build for Repubrick.com) Phantom Mantis: 7/7 (Mindful Coffee) The S.W.A.R.M.: 7/7 (Complete all HabitRPG Dailies) Sit-Rep: I seriously can’t tell you how glad I am that I made this such a low-key challenge! Like I said earlier, Week 1 was pretty crazy. The short version is this: Mrs. Phayze got very sick, went to the doc, got sent to the ER, got some meds, got worse, dropped the meds, started getting better. Apparently her thyroid is overactive, though we’re still working out why/how that happened and what the hell we’re going to do about it. In the mean time, we’ve got the symptoms more or less under control, we’re going to see an endocrinologist ASAP, and she’s been researching foods and supplements that might help her keep things from going haywire again. It’s been... educational. I don’t mean to complain, but here’s a list of other things that have gone off the rails in the last two weeks: our washer/dryer combo unit broke (again), and we had to spend about $400 on a new washer and an outdoor drying rack. The water supply to the fridge sprung a leak, so our filter and ice maker are out of commision - we bought a reverse osmosis filter for the sink because we’ve been wanting one anyway, but with all of the other stuff going on, it’s still in a box on the floor... taunting me. The washer delivery guys needed me to move my (white) car so they wouldn’t have to block the street with the box truck, and I accidentally left it under a stand of mulberry trees all weekend. My car is no longer white. I’m not joking, between the berries and the bird crap, I couldn’t even see out the windshield. o0 Double irony points, because I JUST took our other car to the carwash and had it cleaned within an inch of it’s life. But I digress! For challenge purposes, this week was actually quite a success. I didn’t track much, but I made some adjustments to my Dailies and considered it a win if I got anything accomplished that wasn’t strictly essential for my continued survival; on balance there were far more wins than losses, so I’m quite pleased with myself. “Mindful Coffee†has more often been “mindful toothbrushing†or something similarly mundane and obligatory, but that still counts. One of my prop-free training sessions was only about 10 minutes of playing along with a tai chi video on youtube, but I’m going to say that that counts too. I’m very interested in the way tai chi moves, and I want to understand it better. I don’t have anything posted to Repubrick yet, but I did some prep work (before the poo-storm hit) on several builds, so I think I’m well on track with that one. In other news: I don't like how I've been doing my strength my training, so I'm switching to a revised edition of the high frequency, sub-maximal protocol I was using a couple of challenges ago. It's more fun, fits better in my life, and gave me better results in BOTH the physique and abilities department. Win-win, right? Here's v1.0 Early testing indicates that I'll be using a lower %AMRAP next time.
  9. I agree with EG, completely. It may be worth while to just plan on doing the basics for a few weeks, then ramp it up when you feel like you're getting your groove back. And yeah, you should probably sleep more. Sleep is good. ^^
  10. 6/7 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Max Hold: Vert. Hang 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Pop-ups -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: Rogue's Sunrise (contact rope dart) -Good Behavior B 60s/35s Wall Handstand* 16/11 Horizontal Row (bent legs)* 21/13 Bulgarian Split Squat* Rest as needed -10:00 meditation Rubber legs! 6/8 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: 1-Arm Incline Fingertip Planks (table) 20s Rest Repeat -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: B-Dance Basics -5:00 Myofacial Release (tennis ball, mobility peanut, roller, etc.) -10:00 meditation Went through some beginner bboy stuff that I haven't done in ages (6-step, coffee grinder, kick outs, russian kick, etc.) 6/9 - 6/13: Madness! Medical stuff at home kept me from caring too much about my activities and/or my tracking. I did some half-ass stuff when I was able, but nothing worth reporting. *PR!
  11. I strongly advise against blind faith in me! ^^;You got the idea, though! As for your questions: -I train once per day, just because it's easier for my schedule, and I'm less likely to forget than when I'm spreading the sets out. Either way works, though I actually expect it would better to spread because you would have more rest between sets. -More is better, as long as you're not wearing yourself out and losing your form. This kind of training works by improving efficiency in the nervous system - think "prefect practice makes perfect". It may be worth while to do 4 sets @ 40% AMRAP, or some other combo depending on your skill and ability to recover. I'm kind of prone to burnout, so I err on the side of caution here. Play with it and see what works for you. ^^ -Yes! Progression is king, so keep ramping up your circuits based on each new amrap. Here's an article that might help to clarify some of what in getting at. EDIT: I should point out that the rest days are also up for negotiation, just like everything else. I get busy on the weekends with family stuff, so I intentionally don't train on the weekends, but there's no reason not to, as long as you feel fresh and rested for testing.
  12. All hail the prefects, indeed! Congrats to all the overachievers! All right, Huffles, we've gotten through the introductions (hi! You're awesome.), had some rousing inspirational speeches (Bravo!), seen an in-house gauntlet thrown to push everyone to work like crazy (leave it to the unflappable Mr Willes!), AND NOW I agree that it's time stop fretting over AMRAPs and talk tactics! This is my jam: Day 1: Test AMRAPs for all moves. Days 2, 3, 4, 5: 3 sets of 50% (or so) AMRAP for each move, done as a circuit, rest as needed. The goal is to NOT feel muscle fatigue. Crazy I know... Days 6,7: Rest It's modified from a system that I worked out over the winter, and had really good success with. I switched away from it to try focusing on muscle-building, but frankly I just enjoy this kind of sub-max "strength is a skill to be practiced" training much better. No DOMS + no burnout + minimal time investment = Uncle Phayze's Smile. ^^ I went from an AMRAP of 16 to 22 on beginner shrimp squats in 2 weeks with a similar system. This version is a little more aggressive, and has weekly testing instead of biweekly to accommodate the mini. I'm prototyping this week, so I may make some adjustments as I go along, though. Thoughts?
  13. Thanks, Rowan! ^^ We're getting along, but it's challenging. Stupid doctors never return your calls when you really need them... Anyway, still plugging along. More on Sunday, assuming things settle down a bit.
  14. Not just pecs, either! The core activation from those things sa-weeet, sweet pain.
  15. Seriously! Rock that PR, T! Maybe you could schedule the volume stuff as a second mini-workout later in the day? Might be easier to get it all in that way.
  16. I'm here! Sorry guys, were having some medical unpleasantness in the family, so that's taking a lot of my attention lately. I probably won't be super active on the forums for a while (not that I am on a normal day, but still...). Also, no diorama build this week Maybe next time? Here's a thing I've been working on: Not quite what I was going for, but it's kind of cool, I guess. ANYWAY! Turn #0: Eyes up! We’ve got contacts on the board! Artillery Ape: 2/2 (Prop-free skills training sessions) Gatling Raptor: 1/1 (Prep 1+ build for Repubrick.com) Phantom Mantis: 6/7 (Mindful Coffee) The S.W.A.R.M.: 7/7 (Complete all HabitRPG Dailies) Sit-Rep: I totally cheated on The SWARM this week. u.u I know I said some grandiose stuff the other day about not letting disruptions to my schedule trash my usual plans, but EXTRA disruptions to my schedule came along and that was that. Regardless! I adjusted my expectations for myself pretty quickly then decided on a bare minimum set of things that needed doing, and got them done. Not bad for week 0, right? I have 90% of a submission for Repubrick ready, but I subbed out the duty of making my cover image for it look pretty (because there are those who can do it waaay better than me), so I’m waiting to get that back before I can post it. I’m calling that “close enough†and taking credit for it. ^^ Forgot to get all mindful on something one day, but that’s not bad for a new habit with no rigid structure or timing to it. I’m feeling a little tempted to shift this goal to something more like tech-fasting (mindful phone fiddling?), but I might just make that into a HabitRPG thing and work it from there.... or procrastinate and figure something out for next challenge.^^; The team is fully loaded, and ready to engage for Week 1! TOTSUGEKI!!
  17. Maybe we need some kind of in-house reward for getting the prefect title? Like everybody else has to post in their own threads about how AWESOME the prefect is?
  18. This. Is. AWESOME! OO Thanks for all the hard work you must have done setting this up, Hazard! It's gonna be a blast! ^^

Still doing one or the other everyday, though. 6/2, 6/3 Rest Days, because I'm off work, and didn't get around to making good on my self-promise to not slack off on my workout stuff. >< 6/4 -Grip Training: 20s finger/wrist circles Max Hold: Fingertip Planks -Explosives! 6x3 Catch Tuck Jumps -mobility warm-up -Confusion Fu: -Good Behavior B Testing Day! 22 Pushups (floor) 10 Bent-Leg Inverted Rows 20 Bulgarian Split Squats 23 Lying Knee Raises Rest as needed -10:00 meditation I made my strength workout into my entrance exam for the Nerdwarts Mini Challenge today! Depending on how the mini is structured, I'll probably be upgrading some of my movements prematurely, but honestly I'm okay with that because I was getting tired of some of them anyway. Rows, however, are actually getting REgressed (to bent knees), because I'm having such a hard time getting my reps up. 6/5, 6/6: Rest Days.
  20. Hey all! I don't know much about Hufflepuff, but this looks to be a formidable team of mad badgers up in here, so I'm glad to be one! I'm working endurance these days, so I'm doing pushups, inverted rows, lying knee tucks and Bulgarian split squats! Hoping to rank up two or more of those to tougher progressions by the end of the school term. ^^
  21. Okay, looking at the Hufflepuff lineup, is say "yes. Hufflepuff is a good thing." ^^
