  1. 15 minute little blitz workout this evening, since I didn't have a ton of time. Here are the numbers: Pushups: 30, 20, 15 = (65 total) = 246 cumulative Squats: 40, 30 = (70 total) = 304 cumulative Pullups: 0 = (0 total) = 0 cumulative Lunges: 25, 15 = (40 total) = 195 cumulative Planks: 1:30, 1:00 = (2:30 total) = 8:00 cumulative Looking forward to seeing your next workout, Garjan!
  2. AM workout! Made some progress, which I'm guessing Garjan will come back and immediately annihilate. Numbers: Pushups: 20, 20, 16, 15, 20 = (91 total) = 181 cumulative Squats: 40, 30, 30, 25 = (125 total) = 234 cumulative Pullups: 0 = (0 total) = 0 cumulative Lunges: 30, 25, 30 = (85 total) = 155 cumulative Planks: 1:15, 1:15, 1:00 = (3:30 total) = 5:30 cumulative Actually ahead (for now) in a couple! Your move. On other note, did we ever figure out how pullups would be tracked vs. negative pullups?
  3. Nice work on the pushups, Garjan! I've been slacking, but will put a dent in your numbers tomorrow morning. One of these days I'm actually going to get ahead so I'm not always playing catch up. Look out now...
  4. Finally got the Fitocracy quests I completed last weekend to take - had to re-enter them, but am glad I did, since I got stiffed on points. Fun stuff! Knocked out: "Learning The Pendlay Row" "Baby Widowmaker" "Untz Untz Untz Untz" "Try Out The Deadlift" "Zyzzthetics" "I <3 The Bench Press" "Not Very Dumb At All" "Press Press Press" "The Squat Isn't So Scary!" "Squat Bench Deadlift 135 Club" "Everybody's Doing It" "Hip Drive" 12 Quests, plus the 1 I finished earlier, gives me 13. I'm going to bump up my goal to 18 now, just to keep things interesting. Have been slacking a bit on my PvP challenge, but will shoot for a morning workout early tomorrow - especially needed since I'll be in the office all day working on data entry.
  5. Got a bunch of bodyweight exercises done today for the PvP challenge with Garjan. Made some progress on hitting that 60 pushup goal as well. And, well, went to work for the Life goal. Gotta work for the money! Hope everyone else is doing well!
  6. Alrighty, update. Didn't have a pullup bar available, but got the rest of the workout in, in about 20 minutes. Here are the numbers: Total Time: 20 minutes Pushups: 25, 10, 15, 20 = (70 total) = 90 cumulative Squats: 20, 30, 15 = (65 total) = 109 cumulative Pullups: 0 = (0 total) = 0 cumulative Lunges: 30, 20, 20 = (70 total) = 70 cumulative Planks: 60 sec, 60 sec = (2:00 total) = 2:00 cumulative
  7. Pfffff... never apologize for getting more workouts in. My prediction - you will kick my ass on the legs (especially lunges), I'll eventually win pushups and pullups, and we'll come out about even in planks. Should get a proper workout in on Wednesday - I'll let you know how much damage I can do!
  8. Got in a good workout on Sunday morning, make use of a weight bench and heavy bag at my parents' house, and house music at a wedding. Fitocracy sadly isn't recognizing the quests I completed, which is ticking me off since I'm using that for one of my goals, but by my count I knocked out 6 quests, giving me a total of 7 thus far. Pretty happy about that, even if one of them is titled "Untz Untz Untz Untz" (Do 50 jumping jacks and dance for 30 minutes in one day). Awesome weekend with the wedding, seeing my girlfriend, and visiting my parents. Now back to DC for my first (almost) full week of work at the new job. Life's coming together pretty well!
  9. Took advantage of a weight bench at my parents' house Sunday morning, and I figure I'll count the following toward my totals: Pushups: 20 = (20 total) Squats: 10, 20, 8, 8 = (46 total) - done with weight, but for these purposes, I'll consider them bodyweight Feels like we might need an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of our totals here...I've still got lots of catch up to do!
  10. Awesome! You're wasting no time. We have the same idea re. lunges, so keep counting the cumulative number. I'm planning on running tomorrow and lifting Sunday (headed home to visit parents, so have to take advantage of a weight bench and wooded trails), but the pressure's on now. Well done, I gotta play some catch up!
  11. Works for me. 3 1-hour or less sessions per week, 3-5 sets each of those 5 exercises. Total number of reps sounds good. You want to set up the thread?
  12. Just started today, but I think it'll work out. It'll be long days of non-stop activity, so the biggest challenges will likely be eating well and persuading myself that I have enough energy to run/work out after work. Or before work if I'm really good. Want to incorporate this week's mini-challenge for the PvP? How does pushups, pullups, squats, lunges and planks sound? We can set up PvP's here (http://www.nerdfitness.com/community/forumdisplay.php?189-PVP-Challenges). Thoughts on how to set it up in terms of how many/schedule/etc.?
  13. Hey Garjan - 5 sets of 20 for the burpees. Definitely slowed down toward the end, but splitting them up that way made them doable. Let me know about the PvP - I'd be happy to get something going with you involving pushups, squats, whatever!
  14. Fitocracy Quest #1 (Functional) complete - 100 burpees and 30 bodyweight squats in one day. My legs are not pleased, but they need to get put to work. Looking forward to hopefully logging several more quests this weekend when I have access to a weight bench. Good luck to all!
