  1. Hello, hello! It's time for another 4-week challenge! Last challenge went off pretty dang successful! I am hoping to continue that streak with the number of upcoming challenges planned for the month of June. This June I have a few races coming up such as a Triathlon, Spartan Race, and a couple of road races. Last challenge I found that focusing on completing Nerd Fitness Quests ended up being a great motivation for me to follow through with a number of challenges. So this challenge I will be doing the same! Quest Challenges Finish a Triathlon Sprint Complete a Spartan Race Run the 5K Bubble Race Run the Midsummer Mile Race Do 12 Consecutive Double Unders(Part of Burpee-Bop's Boss Battle) Attend 9 Martial Art Classes(Krav Maga and Swords Training) Write 300 words a day for 30 Days Quests(In Order) Non-Quest Related Challenges Program 1 hour a day, 6 days a week Go to Parkour/Freerunning class 2 times a week Swim once a week ________________ Other than the races, one of my biggest physical focuses is to finish my last NF Boss Battle and move on to my custom-made workouts. I am planning on focusing more on core strength and workouts to improve on Parkour. I'm also going to dial it back on cardio after my triathlon(With the exception of the races) and focus more on strength training this month. Like the last few challenges I will be accomplishing a minimum of one NF Academy Quest per day. I am going to make each post formatted like last challenge and how I format my photo journal. Each day I am going to snap a photo that relates to some sort of progress or memorable event in my life. To save space, each photo will be put in a spoiler tag. Good luck on everyone else in the 4-week challenges!
  2. No mention of JaxBlade yet? This guy is definitely a Youtuber for Nerds who want to get fit. He has a series called Tough Like Toons where he takes a fit fictional character(i.e. One Punch Man, Samurai Jack, The Flash, etc;) and what kind of workout regimes you can do to reach feats like them or get bodies similar to them.. Jax also does videos that do a deep analysis on if a fictional character's workout regime would actually work. His most famous of which is if the One Punch Man workout regime would actually work. Here's his channel: JaxBlade
  3. Looks like it's the end this month's challenge which means it's time to round up this month's grading. This month's challenge would be grade similarly to last month's challenge and follow an all-or-nothing rule. I did wish I updated my 4-Week Challenge more. I've been really caught up with my challenges and often forgot to snap a photo to represent the day. I think next week I am going to include a challenge to update my posts a bit. Well, without further ado! Point Scoring Final Grade Pretty proud of my accomplishments this month! Ended up getting the majority of them completed. Point Scoring With 8Tasks complete that puts me at a grade of: Final Thoughts: Last challenge I ended up doing really poorly due to not having a set schedule. This month I managed create a schedule that worked a lot better for me to fit in my challenges. I also felt that by focusing on Quests this month I ended up getting a lot more of these challenges done. Couldn't finish my last Boss Quests due to weather. This month had a lot of days where the temperature would drop below 50's, making it impossible to frequently practice Double Unders without the chance of my jump rope breaking. However, I did practice enough Double Unders to increase my personal best from 4 to 8. For my martial arts classes, I ended up hitting all but 1 Saturday morning class, due to circumstances caused by myself. Still, I felt that I did end up increasing my attendance by taking on this challenge. So it wasn't a complete loss. Nerd Fitness Academy Stats: Fitocracy Stats Body Shots Measurements _________ The month of June is going to be a very eventful one. Next weekend I'll be running my triathlon then plan to decrease my cardio volume(Mostly doing a lot less biking). I have several races coming up so there will be a lot more focus on running in the next few weeks. With the weather warming up I should be able to spend more time working on my Double Unders and hopefully hit that point of doing 12 consecutive double under jumps. I am getting pretty anxious to start working on my own work-out regime which mixes a lot more core-work and specific muscle groups for doing Parkour and Rock Climbing. Hope everyone had an awesome challenge, see you next challenge!
  4. I like to keep my goals simple
  5. Forgot to put in an introduction! I'm new to the Rangers, but not too new to NF(Anymore, anyway...). Decided to go for the Rangers after a few 4-week challenges because it felt like the right fit with the large variety of activities I'm involved in(literally too large for me to count on both my hands). Looking forward to being part of your Guild!
  6. Hello fellow rangers! Former Rebel here doing this 4-Week challenge as a ranger! I tend to have a diverse workout regime that mixes in strength training and cardio. I thought why not try the Rangers Guild? My last 4-week challenge ended on a pretty low note due to me being derailed from my workout habits. I want to fix it up for this challenge so I thought about doing something a little different. After reading Charles Durhigg's book, The Power of Habit, I realize the best way to keep me on track of all my challenges is to set-up a reward system. I personally found that the best rewards that came with these challenges are related to NF Academy Quests. So this challenge is a little more focused on Quests that will help me build solid fitness habits. Quest Challenges Attend Martial Arts Classes 3 Times a Week Go Swimming Twice a week(2 months completed thus far!) Wake Up 7 AM or earlier Each Day Do 12 Consecutive Double Unders(Part of Burpee-Bop's Boss Battle) Walk 1 Mile Every Morning Quests(In Order) Non-Quest Related Challenges Go to Parkour/Freerunning Classes 2 Times A Week Go Biking Twice a week Go Running Twice a week Program 1 hour a day, 6 days a week Weight Lifting class Once a week ______________ I have a triathlon in June so most of my cardio will be coming from an ongoing workout program. Strength training will be happening about 3-4 days a week with a mix of body weight workouts and weight lifting. Like the last few challenges I will be accomplishing a minimum of one NF Academy Quest per day. I am going to make each post formatted like last challenge and how I format my photo journal. Each day I am going to snap a photo that relates to some sort of progress or memorable event in my life. To save space, each photo will be put in a spoiler tag. I hope everyone has a solid 4-week challenge!
