  1. Trigger? Not sure could be several things. I simplified my program and moved squats first, seems to make a difference.
  2. Okay, I had a panic attack in the middle of my work sets on my Squat on monday, Has me really freaked out. Rethinking my whole program.
  3. Okay finally got through my intended squat work set! No to slink home and recover.
  4. Maybelline superstay matte ink.VERY durable once dry.
  5. Got through my first week, looking forward to next week! Had some fun with hair and makeup today.
  6. It's a franchise chain. Not really very "retro" in application.
  7. I never stated my pronouns, I lean feminine in identity, even if my presentation in life is mainly male. I use she/her online, he/she/they elsewhere, mainly on my presentation but I'm flexible. Already have my custom chucks! I use my own spotify playlist of weird alternative but upbeat stuff. The gym is a Retro Fitness. Definitely a more "serious" crowd than the PF I was gonna use out of convenience, but I kinda prefer that. Some staff members are not as friendly as I'd like. Here is my Program with starting weights: (AMRAP=As Many Reps As Possible) Monday/Friday: Warm Up: Rowing Machine, 5 min. Hip Adductor Machine, 3 sets of 12. (60lbs.) Barbell Overhead Press, 2 sets of 5, 1 set AMRAP. (45lbs.) Barbell Row, 2 sets of 5, 1 set AMRAP. (65 lbs.) Barbell Squat, 2 sets of 5, 1 set AMRAP. (65 lbs.) Battle Ropes, 3 sets of 20 sec.

Barbell Bench Press, 2 sets of 5, 1 set AMRAP. (45lbs.) Barbell Deadlift, 1 set AMRAP. (135 lbs.) Battle Ropes, 3 sets of 20 sec. Prowler, 5 runs up and down the carpet, 70 lbs. Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday: 20 Minute bike ride.
  8. Looks like I found an inexpensive gym that can rescue me from planet fitness. I had figured out a way to kinda do what I wanted, but this place has 3 power racks with bumpers and room for power cleans and snatches.
  9. I overstated my customization. It's the Greyskull LP, with added stuff
  10. So I'm back. I've been through a lot life wise, but I'm in a generally good place. I've come to understand I'm non-binary, and I've come out as such pretty publically. I'm out of shape and my diabetes is out of control. I' did lose some weight due to changing jobs. But my sister-in-law dragged me to a gym and rekindled my motivation. Restarting with a custom novice Linear Progression backed with a bicycling program. Fitness Goals: Go to the gym and lift 3 times per week. Bicycle on 3 off days. Start fixing my diet, specifically by cutting out sugared beverages and snacking at work Life Goal: Be able to play the G and C chords on my guitar cleanly and back and forth.
  11. I'm back. Trying to work up a challenge but I'm determined to make some progress again.
  12. Successful first lifting session down. Massive 65lb. bench and 135 lb deadlift. XD
  13. Okay, I have successfully unearthed the squat rack and got the bicycle back downstairs, outside, but locked and tarped. I have not actually gotten on the bike or lifted, but there is tomorrow.
  14. 6/10 and no motion... Luckily tomorrow is my day off.
  15. Hello Rangers! It's been a long time since I did a challenge, and this is my first time as a Ranger. I'm no longer just a stationary Warrior, I'm actually gonna have quests that make me MOVE! Okay, lets keep this simple. Fitness Quests NORTH: Get the bike setup and start riding. Aim for a 20 minute ride, 3 times a week. I should be able to get myself setup by 6/11, then ride for 20 minutes on non lifting days (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. WEST: Unearth the weights. My neglected weights are rusting, and the whole squat rack is filled with junk. Clean it up by 6/11, then lift (Restart Greyskull LP) Monday, Wednesday, Friday. SOUTH: Working while I work. My job is extremely inactive. I need to stand up three times per hour to stretch, and take a 15 minute walk at lunch. Life Quest WEST: Make a routine for basic stuff. Dishes/meals/Laundry/hygiene That's all I got for now.

  17. I guess person who is trying to walk and lift and cycle to lose weight while building a little muscle is a Ranger. Hello New Guild! See you in the new challenge...
  18. AAAAAARGH! Amazon Smash Sorry things got all explodey between my lovely wife and I in regards to my transition and all exploded. SO I skipped a bunch of workouts, and ate cookies and stuff. We're good now, kinda have a rough timeline for the undudeification process. (I go slow, cause thats me.) I must regain honor. Under the bar. Cause I am crazy. But, If I add HOLY CRAP She- Ra She-RA She-Reluctant Amazon!!!!!! *squee*
  19. Crash Burn, when will I learn. missed two workout to deprtewssion and recovery after gender issues exploded with my wife
  20. I just restarted on GSLP after a long detraining period. I'm doing just the basic 4 lifts and doing tire drags as a finisher. The psychological benefits of GSLP are amazing. I can get a solid workout in less time, it's great.
  21. Food Goal, so far 2 good, one Poor Lifting 2 good I've actually showered every day. That's like amazing for me. I have this whole "well, I hate this stupid male body why should I clean it, no one cares if guys stink" thing going on. I'm calling goal 3. Its too unfocused, its all weird. I'm gonna give me a C for recognizing this wasn't working. Lifting Goals (Medium Term): Deadlift 225 lb. Squat 185 lb.. Bench Press 135 lb. Press 95 lbs.
  22. My future goal is to swap my DL and bodyweight. xD Sent from my LG-D321 using Tapatalk
