  1. Every week, a new hotel. Every week, the same struggle: WHAT CAN I DO PULL-UPS ON?!

  2. Introduction: Hey, I'm Josh, and this is my third challenge! I like road bikes, but I live in the city and I own a mountain bike, so it's really more of a mountain bike on a road. I also love bodyweight exercises, but I have a really hard time getting out of bed and consistently doing it. I workout in the morning because, hey, it wakes me up and then I don't have to shower twice. I live an active lifestyle and my career demands physical fitness and energy (I work in theatre, so actually, my name is currently The Rightful King of France). I joined the rebellion because I really want

  5. I remember that feeling of the wrist pain. It sucks! I remember not knowing what to do about it and being afraid of hurting them. Switching to wall planks does reduce your time and uses different muscles, you're right about that. It also uses the base muscles you've been training with the planks. If you haven't already, look at Chris Salvato's 15-Second Handstand for some tips on how to keep improving and what to do about the wrists. I believe there's an email list you can subscribe to for free in order to get some tips on things like the "cambered hand" technique, which really helps wi
  6. Well, here's the news: Unfortunately, at the end of last week, I pinched a nerve in my lower back because of a muscle I pulled in my butt last fall. This means that I have had a lot of pain in my back. Thus, I've been barely able to walk, and as such, exercise. I have been doing pushups, pullups, stretches, and various other small body exercises to keep myself moving, but it's been a really frustrating week for this to happen, because I just started the 6-week challenge, AND a theatre production I'm acting in opened yesterday. I've only done 2 days of cardio and 2 days of TMNT, with 3 more
  7. Don't you worry. You'll get all the support you need here, even if you're feeling particularly uncharismatic on any given day. Keep up the process, and go for it! Like the others said. You're not alone!
  8. Love it! Great goals. Keep up your handstand practice long enough, and you'll find that it's very rewarding! My balance has increased significantly, and I started with, oh, NONE. You can do it! Also, love the singing idea. They say that singing every day makes a person happier.
  9. Thanks, Manarelle! I'll remember that! I think that will help me stay limber. Keep practicing that plank! If you go for as long as you can and then take a 1 minute break and then go again, you'll start seeing results in just a few days! You can do it too!!
  10. I put post-its on my wall today to keep track of my progress in this 6WC!!

      I JUST DISCOVERED THESE COMMENTS.

      You inspire me.. I want a wall of post-its someday. Each one will remind me of some other aspect of my life, and together it forms a self-portrait! HURRAH! NEW GOAL.

      Better watch out, DrMobius. I'm comin' up...

  11. Introduction: Hey, I'm Josh, and this is my second challenge! I like road bikes, but I live in the city and I own a mountain bike, so it's really more of a mountain bike on a road. I also love bodyweight exercises, but I have a really hard time getting out of bed and consistently doing it. The only time I have available to workout is the morning because I'm still in college (MY LAST SEMESTER!!!) I live an active lifestyle and my job requires a lot of energy, as my career demands physical fitness (I work in the theatre, so actually, my name is currently Jack Raymon. Detective Jack Raymo
  12. I've tried, and I've basically kept going with the TMNT workouts and the handstands, but I only bike once a week, because school has started up again. As for food, I've recovered from my lack of money, and I'm doing fine with that. So... Not awful, but not glamorous. I'm not exactly keeping up to date in my nerdfitness logs either.
  13. Yes it is! But I'm all done now. Heh, well... My pocket couldn't quite afford much food this past week, so nutrition has been mostly soup, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fruit snacks, granola bars, and chicken.
  14. Thanks, guys! Well, it's been hard so far. I'm only at wall-planks for about 20-30 seconds. In addition, I had to move out of my apartment and into a new place this weekend, so I've been thoroughly exhausted; I missed one workout the other day. At least all the heavy lifting counts, right?

I have a job that requires a lot of physical activity and a career path that demands physical fitness (I work in the entertainment industry).
