  1. Br0din prepares for Ragnarok, part Niu

    I'm following this to help promote @makecrossfitwarrioragain . I have found this guy on YouTube who I watch relentlessly (mainly since I think he's entertaining to watch), but he gives great advice on how to up some skills - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1lfnF3avRvtFm_wajLLhyg - Check him out, he has some articles on Double Unders, Overhead balance, Muscle Ups. Good luck.
  2. Let's Warrior Up!

    Interesting concept. I'm going to add that book to my "to read" list. Great selection for a workout, I previously did StrongLifts 5x5 and must say that I saw some amazing results (both with increasing numbers and my body getting into shape). Good luck with it, definitely warrior building.

  8. crashy: Sometimes in life you have to hit back

    Thanks, agreed Deadlift is probably the easiest to get to for the moment, I might not hit all the PR's listed, but it's good to aim high. Honestly I think I should be fairly close to getting most of them, just haven't had the opportunities to give them some attempts to make them higher. My workout plan is two parts, the first is CrossFit 3-4x a week, this should get in quite an amount of lifting, and then I go to gym twice a week and usually try and do 5x5 or 5x3 of a weakness (or area I didn't workout properly for the week) One of the real challenges will be Clean and Jerk and Snatch, mainly due to having to work on my technique Hah I'm in for the #makecrossfitwarrioragain , so @Br0din can pass the kool-aide jug. Back squats are high bar position ( as far as I know), but I'm not 100% sure.
  9. Hey Team, Hope everyone is doing well. Looking forward to another challenge ahead. I'm typically in the Ranger class, but decided to hang with the warriors for a month as I want to add some strength My goals for this challenge are all physical (I'm still working on my full list of goals, so maybe next challenge there will be some other categories). In the long run (i.e. next 6 months) I want to enter some CrossFit tournaments and actually compete (and place reasonably). We had a mini tournament at the CrossFit box that I'm at, and even though I'm not in shape at the moment I knew that I could actually compete with the other guys *IF* I had 6 more months to train. It just felt like a dream that I need to achieve. Here are some 1RM PR's that I would like to achieve this challenge (and my current PR) . Deadlift - 120KG (Current PR 100KG x 5) . Back Squat - 110KG (Current PR - 95KG) . Front Squat - 90KG (Current PR - 70KG) . Clean - 100KG (Current PR - 80KG) . Squat Clean and Jerk - 90KG (Current PR - 80KG) . Bench Press - 100KG (Current PR - 80KG) . Snatch - 60KGS (Current PR - 40KG) The above numbers in some cases seem like big gains, but I'm sure they are achievable and my goal numbers are based on how I feel about my current PR (i.e. if it felt heavy or if there was room for more).
