  1. Awesome quest, just be careful of your wrists, 5 mins every day is a lot of strain on those puppies, especially if you're not letting them recover with a day off. Anyhow as your challenge title says "Trust your body" it will tell you when it's time to stop for a bit. Totally subbing this challenge can't wait to see if you get off the wall
  2. I have edited my third goal because I think ints unrealistic. Here is a smarter version that will hopefully yield the same results. Goal 3: Becoming an early riser In order to give myself more time I am going to wake up one hour earlier than I do usually and use that hour to stretch/work out. This means setting the alarm for 6:30. However I know from experience that getting up earlier that you are used to can be difficult so i'm going to eat myself into it. This week I will get up at 7:30 Week 2: 7:15 Week 3: 7:00 Week 4: 6:45 Week 5: 6:30 Week 6: 6:30 Scoring here will be directly related to how many times I get out of bed when the alarm goes off. Sundays are my lie in day.
  3. Totally didn't realise there were oher tabs. Switching to lannister as well.
  4. Just did my first workout with the p-bars. I thought it was going to be reasonably easy, how wrong I was, especially the front dips! Push Ups (Knees) 3x8 Front Dips 3x8 Hollow Body Hold 5x5sec Tick Hold 5x5sec Mountain Climbers 3x8
  5. Awesome challenge dude, especially good luck with the no alcohol, I did the full six weeks last challenge and couldn't believe how much money I had left in the bank
  6. Hey Awesome challenge, let us all know how you get along with the hollow body holds. I did them last challenge, it was tough but a lot of fun
  7. This challenge is not getting off to a great start. Yesterday I was brutally hung-over and so failed on all accounts to do anything except a couple of push-ups and the dirty rice routine. Today however has got off to a better start. I have started my elimination diet. Got the food diary. and am about to purge the house of all things tempting. I totally forgot to re-set my alarm clock last night so will have to start early rising/stretching tomorrow. However on the plus side I am now the proud owner of some home made p-bars! Bring on the program!
  8. Thanks, yeah i'm super excited about the rice training as well. On the P-Bars i'm just going to be concentrating on the basics as this is my first time using them. L-Sit, Handstand, Press-Ups, Hollow body will keep me busy for the first 3 weeks. I'll check in again after that and see.
  9. Yeah i'm stoked about the rice bucket speaking of which..... That's 20kgs of rice right there! Only cost me 8 quid. Flexibility wise i'm going to be focusing on hamstring lengthening and hip opening, eventually one of these days I will be able to do the splits

    Dude you're so close! Keep it up. The stretching can do nothing but good for you.Can't wait to see if you get it. Subbed.
  11. Dude, epic goals, especially the no smoking goal! I've been smoke free since October last year and sometimes its hard but it's totally worthwhile. Keep it up!
  12. Those goals seem ace! I'm especially interested in the rings is the that GMB part? I have been thinking about investing in a pair and getting on the rings one program.
  13. Just in case you are wondering what Rice Digs are:
  14. Hi everyone, for this challenge I have decided to become assassin, woot! This is my third challenge and i'm super stoked to get started learning some new skills. Goal 1: The way of the Iron Fist! After every work out this challenge I am going to finish off with a round of Dirty Rice training. This is yo help re-hab an injured wrist and balance out the different muscles. I'm going to do 3 levels of difficulty which I will work towards. Level 1: 20 sec Exercise + 15 Sec rest Level 2: 30 sec / 10 Sec Level 3: 45 sec 5 sec Goal 2: Learning the Parallel Bars I'm going to make myself some paralettes and get learning. I'm going to alternate this workout with bodyweight squats. The program I am using has different levels of difficulty so I will monitor my progress through that. Goal 3: Becoming an early riser In order to give myself more time I am going to wake up one hour earlier than I do usually and use that hour to stretch/work out. This means setting the alarm for 6:30. However I know from experience that getting up earlier that you are used to can be difficult so i'm going to eat myself into it. This week I will get up at 7:30 Week 2: 7:15 Week 3: 7:00 Week 4: 6:45 Week 5: 6:30 Week 6: 6:30 Scoring here will be directly related to how many times I get out of bed when the alarm goes off. Sundays are my lie in day. Goal 4: Figure out whats wrong with my gut. Showing symptoms of gassiness, bloating etc (I won't go into it here) but in an attempt to figure out which foods are causing the issues i'm going on an elimination diet. This is 3 weeks of extremely restrictive eating and then slowly re-introducing foods and monitoring the effects in a specific gut related diary (not on here) Scoring here will be done by the amount of days feeling awesome. OK that's it, super simple but super challenging. Lets do this!
  15. Right back after my last challenge which was awesome. Super stoked with the progress I have made so far. I am still having wrist issues, although it gets better week on week. I am currently working on paralettes which allow me to do pressing movements without aggravating my wrists. Also I am working on the dirty rice workout to try an strengthen my extensors etc. This is HARD!
  16. Im so glad this challenege is over. Happy days. Ive enjoyed every second but now I need to sleep. Im going to tabulate mt svores later but im pretty confident ive done ok.
  17. Well done boys and girls six weeks are up and we've all done awesomely! #crushedit
  18. Woot! Today I worke up with the intention of stopping my diet as I havent seen progress for two weeks... untill this morning! 74.6kg. Thankyou thankyou thankyou, just as I was beginning to lose faith.
  19. Yeah man sounds like you're doing great, strong push to the end!
  20. Woot woot how are we all doing, week 6 and the last push to the finish!!!
  21. Alrighty, a bit late but here's the weekly round -up. Weight - stuck at 75kg, been like that for around 8 days hopefully break through this plateau soon. Flexibility - Can touch my toes and get into a full twist which is great. Massage - This has turned into a habit now which is ace. I don't really have a routine I just do it as and when at regular intervals. Abs - Happy to say I've got to the end of the progressions for this. Hollow, Arch, Forearm Plank, Side Forearm Plank all held for 1 minute successively. Squats - Not so good. Sort of stopped doing them this week, not sure why. Water - Much better not recording it on the app but got a litre water bottle which I fill up and drink two and a half times a day, seems to work. Reading - Total fail, haven't touched the book since week 1!
