  1. 7 - 9 March 2021 Quest Progress: My best time on the rings flexhang so far was 28 sec, and I got that exactly a month ago. So while this week's flexhang workout was a 7 second increase over the horrible flexhang workout from the previous week, my flexhang has made effectively no positive progress over the last month. I think the culprit is fatigue from the pulling exercises before the flexhang. I'm going to move my flexhang training over to "Chest" day and see if it does better there.
  2. 3 - 5 March 2021 This was a much better series of workouts. Quest Progress: Instead of two warmups then an AMSAP, I did three straight AMSAPs for the support holds. All three sets lasted longer than my top set from the week before, but moreover the first set netted me a +9 sec improvement over my previous best Supper Hold AMSAP. After three weeks of declining times, it was a relief to see the grind finally break through to a new best. No fanfilms to share this time. I've gotten hooked watchi
  3. 26 - 28 February 2021 Replies first, then updates. 👍. We check out like 20 children's books from the library every week or two. There's been a few elephant and piggy stories in the mix. She likes them. Sound quality is usually the indicator for me. If a fanfilm maker won't budget a couple hundred dollars for a basic sound setup so that viewers can actually hear the dialogue, then they don't really care if people watch their film. ------------------ Quest Prog
  4. Why? I ask because your routine includes the Bench Press and RDLs, so presumably you have access to a barbell for Squats.
  5. 20 - 23 February 2021 Replies first, then updates. It's a cute book, but after my daughter had me read it with her three times in a row every night for a week, I felt relieved when we returned it to the library. There's a ton of fan-made and small studio films out there to watch. Of varying budgets and acting quality. I'll post another one today that I think people may like. Yeah I could certainly make the quest easier on myself if I dropped 20 kg. ------------------
  6. 16 - 18 February 2021 Quest Progress: I lost 1 second off my flexhang AMSAP set. But nabbed three seconds more of total volume. I've done stuff on rings in the past, and know from my previous (and current) experience that Rings raise the challenge rating of an exercise significantly -- but every time I grab the rings to do a set I still find myself surprised by just how much harder a thing on the Rings is compared to doing that thing on a bar. Today's video offering. Best watched with the English subtitles turne
  7. 11 - 14 February 2021 Replies first, then updates. Parent Brain Activated™ Rings! Rings! Ringy-ring-rings! ------------------ Quest Progress: This was a +2 sec improvement on support hold from last time, and a six second increase in total volume. First time I've ever curled over 100 lbs. Always fun to reach a landmark along a journey. 😊. I was on the discord when I did it, and I'll repeat here what I typed there: I still don't
  8. 6-9 February 2021 Replies first, then updates. It's a given. I'm using a regular (neutral-ish) grip for my challenge flexhang quest. I'm still treating falsegrip training as a side quest -- doing a couple sets of rings ballgrip deadhangs at the end of my Arms Day workout. Spider Bridge is apparently a thing ------------------ I've decided to post my updates in 3-day workout groupings this time around. Which means I'll only be posting upd
  9. Here's a link to my next NF Challenge thread.
  10. Intro: Hazard is presently a 43 years-old, 5'9" and 219 lbs male. (That's 174 cm and 99 kg for you metric folk).

  11. Review of Challenge Take a look back at what my NF Challenge was about: Results: Basic Support Hold on Rings: increased from 3 seconds at testing to 25 seconds in the most recent support hold workout. As expected, growing that initial 3 seconds to 1 minute will take more time. Deadhang on Rings: increased from 26 seconds at testing to 1:06 minutes in the final deadhang workout. And then - having met my goal - I advanced to training full flexhangs. Review of The Goals: As I wrote at the start, any amount of improveme
  12. 3 & 4 Feb 2021 Quest Progress: A +1 second improvement on flexhang over last time. And that's the last workout for this NF Challenge. A challenge review post will be coming.
  13. 28, 31 Jan and 2 Feb 2021 The Vampiric Order of the Red Cross were in town, and I let them suck my blood a few hours after my leg workout. Then I took a couple of days off from exercise. One side benefit of donating this time is that the Red Cross is doing Covid-antibody testing on the donations. Quest Progress: This was a -2 second decrease on my flexhang AMSAP. But, a 4 second increase in my best total volume across three sets. Quest Progress: A +2 second increase o
