  1. Here is my home training routine It takes about 30 min with short rest between sets. Thoughts and suggestions are welcome! "J-mans Home training plan - using barbell 18kg and body weight - pyramide super set with - Row - hangclean with front squat. ( First one row and one hang clean with front squat, then two of each and so on. Up to 5 reps then down again. All without any rest.) Do this 2 times - Super set of - 5 hangcleans with overhead press - 10 lunges (5 on each leg) - 15 pushups Everything 2 times without rest. T
  2. Summary of week one. Monday: supposed to be Grit-strenght group training but they decided to remove that one so instead monday is another strenght training day. Compound exercises. Felt strong! Tuesday: restday Wednesday: home training. (I will post my home training plan if someone else is interested) Thursday: rest Friday - sunday: away on a trip to friends in another city. Only did a short bodyweight circiute on saturday just to do something. So in all it was not a perfect start of the challenge. I missed one strenght training and the precious swimming. But I felt strong on both strenght se
  3. Ok. yesterday was home training. Went well. I was really tired afterwards but it felt great. The rest of this week however will not be as planned. We're going away on a trip friday till sunday without any training. Well I'll get nack at it next week!
  4. Great looking goals! Your combination of strenght training and Hiit cardio will be great I think. Its alittle bit the same as what Im aming for with this challenge. Well abit!
  5. Nice goals. I like the biking goals! When you say 100 pushups do you mean that you want to be able to do 100 pushups in one go??!
  6. Summary of the first day: A rough day! I had a bad day at work again. I work as a teacher and today was one of those days when I dont want to be a teacher anymore! Ungrateful students that dont appriciate the work you put down for them and stressfull days. I get these days more often now and it brings me down and not just me but also my wife and daughter. ( I think I have to add some kind of life quest to this challenge, something that will push me to get some change in my life.) so, that was the "perfect" start of the challenge. After work was over it was time for Grit strenght, I thought.
  7. Ok, one day left. Tomorrow is Grit strenght day so I pack my bag and make my self ready! Lets do this everyone!!
  8. So a week will look something like this. Monday: Flexibility excercises as warm up then Grit Strenght Tuesday: Rest day Wednesday: Flexibility excercises as warm up then hometraning Thursday: Rest day Friday: Flexibility excercises as warm up. - Spinning and Running. - Strenght training Saturday: Rest day (maybe run ot bike outside) Sunday: Swimming
  9. Hi everybody! Ok I have done a challenge or two before but I feel like I want to start over this time. So here we go again. Main quest: Perform in a mini-tri race in august. Thats 600meters swim, 20km bicycle and 4km run. - My goal is to do it under 1h 20 min - Sub goal is to be able to do the whole swim with crawl and be able to do the whole swim without stopping. J-man goes Sylar - "Gathering the super powers Part 1" To complete this race within 1h 20min (or better) I need to gather some extra powers! So with the determination of Sylar its time to get what should be mine from some of o
  10. Hi Just wanted to drop by and give you all a good cheer. You've been doing great! I never finnished my last challenge and habe not really been around for a bunch of months, due to stuff and things :-( well I hope to be back for next challenge. I have a triathlon after this summer that I want to finnish with good time. So I need to get at it for real now! One of my earlier goals was to do a 10k run in less than an hour, yesterday I was out and my runkeeper stopped reporting distance halfway through, ended up doing a 9.5 k run in 51 minutes. I was ofcourse super thrilled, still abit of a bumme

The swimming hasnt been :-) as I said in the first post just one or two swims during this challenge is ok. Focus on bike and run. Will get back it again now! //J
  13. Hi everybody! Nothing to worry about. Ive just been down with a cold. I have had it for more than a week now. Ive taken it really slow so I dont make it worse. Last week I didnt even take the bike to work. My classes are going well sofar, though. Even if Im abit nervous about instructing bodypump and all that but I think Ill manage it. The knee has been better for a while but the last two days Ive felt it again. I think Its because I need to get started with the training again. Thank you all for checking in, hopefully Ill be back in the end of the week with atleast a shorter run. Being sic
