  1. Thursday, the elements program had me putting together a freeflow excerise from the 3 movements I practice in it. It was a great way to start the morning. Thursday night I had Judo. We did some grappling moves (I don't know the japanese name for it yet) which worried me because I ended up with some soreness in my elbow/bicep area. Then we did Randori and sparring is great. In the last fight I attempted a Sasae (shortened from Sasae tsurikomi ashi) Only for me while I ended up completing the throw I also gave myself an awesome bruise on the shin from his knee. I'm learning
  2. Great Job Man! All your talk of running is making my brain say "A run would be good for us." Now I happen to know... I hate running. A lot. The only reason I run is to get the exercise over with as quick as possible. All that being said my girlfriend and I have a 5k fun run toward the end of this month. I should probably put some miles in.
  3. Squats are starting to feel heavy, but the sets felt good form wise. I'm still pretty excited about the growth possible. Overhead Press is still feeling awesome. 95 went great 5 reps 3 sets BOOM Deadlift got in my head. At camp I deadlifted 275 on my 3rd attempt and I remembered this right before going into my workset. This got in my head and my brain was like "you want us to do WHAT!? 10 lbs less are you crazy!!?" So this affected my breath and my form and I pulled 2 times, they were solid but I was feeling distracted. Having to reset before going for my 3rd then still
  4. End of the day yesterday was a lot of fun. I got to experience Randori (sparring) in Judo for the first time ever. It was a lot of fun, also super exhausting. Monk cardio is best cardio though. I had forgotten how much cardio is necessary for fighting shape. I look forward to building it back. Apparently I have a lot of good instincts, but because of my skill level I'm not noticing the things I am instinctively doing and am more focused on not getting thrown on the ground. It was super fun, have historically hated tournaments and martial arts competition, but I might try out one for Judo and s
  5. ALL ABOARD!!! Note to self: increase stealth tactic training.
  6. TIME TO DO THIS THING!! Okay except maybe not right away. Took some self care this morning. I too many sugary drinks and too little decent food this weekend compounded with not enough quality sleep last night to be a disastrous wake up this morning. I'm working on learning the difference between laziness and a need for self care, this morning felt very much like it would have been a bad idea to lift on. I did my headspace meditation though!! I'll try to get Elements in before Judo. Meal planning also a thing I should work on. Anyway lets get clear about
  7. Hey! The rules must have changed because I was finally able to update my username. Now I'll just have to be more intentional in telling people who know me who I am.
  8. This is Will. I was the one with the ginger beard. there were a lot of camp faces I don't blame you
  9. I like hanging out with the rebels for now. It's a fun place . Plan is to do more lifting for a while before switching back to gymnastic movement goodness. Maybe next Challenge I'll check out the Warriors then move to Asssassin's page. Elements is great. 1) It's fun to do 2) take 20-30 minutes 3) A lot of wrist, shoulder, and hip mobility in the warmup section 4) My squat has gotten better 5) once I get a better hang of all the things I might use it as a warmup to my regular workout.
  10. Yup... poverty nerds convinced me to join in this time. We'll see how I can pull this together. Really want to update my username to my usual character name of Matariel, but apparently I have to post 150 things first. Looking forward to all the awesome in this thread
  11. So I was told by @Raxie that it's 0 week and I need to get on the hype train so here I am I'm seeing a bunch of other people with all their super creative DnD/FF alter egos so I'm trying to think of what mine would be. Gymnastics Training Rings Training Martial Arts Archery It's all pretty rogue assassin ish to me. Anyway Goals More of the same from last challenge Continue Starting Strength Weeks 6 7 8 9 Continue Elements Week 3 4 5 6 gmb.io/e Meditation 3x week Headspace
  12. I LOVE DRAGONS! Also Dragon Disciples. Now you and @Big_Show both have me thinking about how to incorporate DnD into this shindig. I'll have to study up on some things....
  13. Following for inspiration, cat .gifs, and Madi sightings.
