  1. Final writeup: Whew, took me a while to get to this. Goal #1 Get Strong: Saw some pretty great increases here. Moved on to working OAPU. Moved on to elevating my feet for pike pushups and bodyweight rows. Increased my chin ups in a workout from 10 to 15. And I'm feeling closer than ever to getting that first pistol. I did miss several workouts throughout, so I'm going with a B for this one Grade: B + 3 STR Goal #2 Get Lean: At the end of the challenge, my weight was 182.4 lbs, meaning that I lost a total of 8.2 lbs from the start of this challenge. My diet was close to perfect thro
  2. The site looks great! Read a few articles; I really like the losing weight vs. cutting one. It was never really a distinction that I would think to make, but it definitely is two very different mindsets. Can't wait to see more!
  3. Whew, it's been a hot minute since I updated this thread. The good news is this wasn't an "I gave up on my challenge and stopped working out" kind of not updating. Just the "sweet Jesus, have I been busy" kind. First things first, workout logs: 5/15 Usual Warm Up Workout: Chin Ups - 5, 4, 4 (-1) Partial Pistols - 4/4, 4/4, 5/5 Elevated OAPU - 5/5, 5/5, 5/5 Single Leg Hip Thrust, shoulders elevated - 5/5, 5/5, 6/6 BW Row - 8, 8, 7 Pike Pushup - 8, 8, 7 5/17 Usual Warm Up Workout: Chin Ups - 5, 5, 4 (-1) Negative Pistols - 3/3, 3/3, 3/3 Elevated OAPU - 6
  4. Yep, I can do it. When I do, my heels stay touching throughout the whole movement; is that how you are?
  5. Three Inches of Blood - "Trial of Champions" Winds of Plague - "The Great Stone War" Or any 80's Metallica
  6. 5/13 Workout log: Usual warm up Skill Work: L-Sit work - 5 mins - Pushing off the ground, one leg off the ground at a time, attempting tucks Workout: Chin Ups - 5, 4, 4 (-1) Negative Pistols - 4/4, 4/4, 3/3 Elevated OAPU - 5/5, 4/4, 5/5 Single Leg Hip Thrust, shoulders elevated - 5/5, 5/5, 6/6 BW Row - 8, 7, 7 Pike Pushup - 8, 7, 7 - Not too much to say about the workout; the numbers speak for themselves. I did do an abbreviated skill work session just because I was feeling somewhat crunched for time. - Diet this weekend was spot on, except for a pretty larg
  7. Thanks! Interesting call on the support/L-sit. I feel like my abs are very much the weak point in my L-sit; even after my support holds, my abs definitely feel like the weak link in my L-sits. I'll try the ab work in conjunction with the ring support next time. For the OAP's, I feel like at this point, rotation is little to no issue. But I keep hearing about how it's the big, bad problem. So I look for it. I basically try as hard as I can to keep my chest as parallel with the ground as it is with normal pushups. Is that what I should be looking for? Or is it just an issue that will show up
  8. 5/10 Workout log: Usual warm up Skill Work: Ring support work - 2 mins - Holds for time L-Sit work - 5 mins - Pushing off the ground, one leg off the ground at a time, attempting tucks Handstand work - 5 mins - Wall walks and stomach to wall handstands Workout: Chin Ups - 4, 4, 4 (-1) Partial Pistols - 5/5, 5/5, 5/5 Elevated OAPU - 4/4, 4/4, 5/5 Single Leg Glute Bridge - 5/5, 5/5, 6/6 BW Row - 7, 7, 7 Pike Pushup - 7, 7, 7 - Another all around good workout. Felt a little more worn down throughout it, but my Friday workouts are usually like that. On Mondays,
  9. Geocaching is always a blast. Hope you guys get some nice weather for it!
  10. For the negatives, I start standing with one leg out in front and lower myself as slowly as possible. It really forces you to contract everything throughout the whole motion. I also hold the bottom position for a few seconds, then lower my other leg to stand back up. And thanks!!
  11. Thanks guys! So just a few notes on today: - The quad DOMS that I was expecting from yesterday's pistol negatives sure didn't disappoint. I'm taking this as a good sign that I've found a way to really work the full ROM more effectively (thanks for the suggestion, Wolverine!) - I'm planning a trip back home to VT sometime in July, and my first two thoughts were 1) "Does my sister still have her pull up bar?" and 2) "Can't forget my rings!" This shit is just downright infectious. - My life goal is now in full effect for this challenge; my analytical chem class started on Monday. First
  12. Happy to hear your mystery plague is subsiding. Though the Bane mask isn't a terrible worst case scenario
  13. Nice to see the handstand kick ups coming along, and finding a way to work out no matter where you are
  14. Whenever I need a boost, I come here to remind myself that Wolvie is doing all this after getting cut open. Living up to the namesake.
