  1. Check out Convict Conditioning. It's a book on body weight exercise progressions, and one of the progressions is a handstand progression. The author actually has you start with a headstand, if I recall correctly, and work up from there.
  2. I have a serious problem with making it all the way through a challenge without falling off the bandwagon. I think my real problem is that I am not consistent in reporting things. Fitocracy makes it so easy to just track your workout, so I've been doing a pretty good job of that (except last week, dealing with a cold). Japanese studying though? Next challenge, proper tracking will be my life goal.
  3. I was an early adopter of the beardhead. This was all they had. :P They had just brought out the multi-colored versions of the base model. Now I want one of the long-bearded barbarian ones.

    Yeah, Japanese crows don't react to raven impressions, either... though Japanese 7 year olds can't get enough of it.

  4. Well if you wanted to be a pirate, you bought the wrong beardhead! I do a fairly good raven impression myself... and can't help trying it on the crows in Oregon. Doesn't really affect them much.

  5. I came down with a cold. Been down and out the last few days. Feeling better today, but it's not even lunch time, so we'll see how I feel when I get home.
  6. xD I'd never thought of it like that. When I came up with this name, I wanted something unique and thought it sounded pirate-y. Apparently no one else did, but I'd already picked it. I really do a great raven impression, though... it's fun to watch ravens look around confused when they hear it.

  7. Hey! Good to see another Alaskan around... But shouldn't you be ravenbeak then? :P

  8. How many reps and sets you want to do really depends on what your goal is. For endurance, you want to do low weight at high reps, and for strength you want to lift heavy and do low reps. That's why a lot of us do 3x5 or 5x5... we're trying to up our weight numbers. xD
  9. I've updated my blog with info on the last three days. http://nerdfitness.com/community/entry.php?6086-March-Stages-3-4-through-3-6 This week has been total fail mode in studying for the JLPT every day, but it's been an interesting week and I've had lots of opportunities to use Japanese in ways I don't usually need... so I feel like the lack of workbook-based study has been balanced out. I didn't get a workout in yesterday, but I plan to work on deadlifts and barbell rows sometime later today. I'll do planks and push-ups then, too.
  10. Hi, there! I just saw your avatar on the forums. I'm from Alaska, too. I wasn't born there, but I grew up in Eagle River. I'm currently in Japan. And I totally agree about beef just not being as good as moose. Moose. -_- Pests, but so delicious.

  11. I'm not truly inactive. I got tired of checking for a squads thread and missed it. Though for the past several days I've been lax on posting updates to my blog. >_> So, about me. 27, female (don't let the Beard Head fool you), and interested in bench pressing bears. I am, however, lazy, and am just reposting my goals as stated in my blog. This is my first challenge this year, so I'm starting with my goals for the end of the year. Goals for the End of the World. Er, the End of 2012 Non-Fitness goal: Obtain Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) N2 certification. I have two chances, Ju
  12. I had no idea Pythagoras was into deadlifting!On a more serious note, I'm reading Starting Strength now and find the explanations to be well worth the price of the book even if I decide follow a different program. If you like to know the whys to go with the hows, it's a good choice. I say this knowing nothing besides the RSG and SS.
  13. Peanut butter with a little bit of honey to sweeten it. Don't want to go overboard with the honey, of course, but it's good. Or just about any veggie with almond butter.
  14. I've never smoked even a single cigarette, but I support yall anyway. Best of luck!
  15. An AWESOME hat, you mean! You can even get replacement moustaches in different shapes. Including a Mario 'stache! Don't worry about the gender mistake. I talk a lot like a guy and am often mistaken for one online. It's all in a day's dayness.Anyway, thanks for all the advice, guys! It looks like good stuff.
