    The Year of the Saiyan

    I'll tell you what. This challenge is showing some real results. Definition in the triceps and biceps. Unfortunately, it's kind of stale and I don't even have that much to say. But, I suppose progress isn't about the exciting chaos of change as much as the steady progress of growth.
  3. Who do you turn to when your family are the most damaging people in your life?

      At least it's not interfering with my challenge!

      Agreed with erosan and Elanorsbee!

      Ha, I can sympathise. Food is like "Eat me! Eat me!" and you think about working out and this little voice comes along and is like "Ugh.. sounds horrible, why put in all that effort only to feel sore tomorrow"

  5. Does this mean post-partum depression is a misdiagnosis, or is it separate from birth-related PTSD?

    The Year of the Saiyan

    Due to what can only be described as Murphy taking vengeance on me for being productive and progressive, I am currently without cell phone and laptop. My only form of communication is the computer lab on campus. Week Two and Three post is imminent What does the scouter say about his Power Level? It's almost nine thousaaaaaand! This week saw several benchmarks 100 pushups in a workout.3 pull ups (not that many, but it's a start!)Learned to deadlift the barAs for the strength-to-weight ratio, I haven't checked yet. I'll look at it at the school gym at the end of this week and then again at the
  8. I have a question for any strength/warrior monks. How much would it hurt for me to not workout/tone it back this week as school starts? Will there be any significant loss or gain?
  9. Re the stance: The idea is to be able to drive the ball of your back foot into the ground to get more power in your hips. With the heel flat, you simply don't generate as much force as you could. Fingers outstretched so you can grab, strike open-hand, or make a fist as the situation calls. It's all about getting the most out of the least in Krav. It's much more natural to keep your fingers open, it's much more powerful to simply raise your heel an inch off the ground, and it's much safer to keep your arms close in for protection - especially in a street fight where bumrushing is usually the fi
  10. I don't care that Epic Rap Battles of History is a lame show. I'm a writer and I think the fusion of pop culture icons and Raps that address the silliness of them all is just... fantasticd

      All the Vegas people I know seem to be "too cool" for it. Just one more reason the rebellion is awesome, eh?

      Lame? their only fault so far is that they are on hiatus. I want more of them!

  11. Love it! I'm just gonna go ahead and follow this thread

    Martial Enhancement

    My only addition to running vs swimming is that there is a difference between swimming and swimming. I got yelled at by a triathlete friend who criticized my technique as "casual freestyle" and not the most efficient method of swimming. Worth asking someone for technical advice if you want to swim for fitness. The more efficient distance coverage is a much more killer workout

    Full plank is the top of pushup position, dolphin is the elbow version. I did it so I could do more pushups. Communication is an important skill! If you have a chatty cathy on your hands, I think improving in that area would improve your relationship exponentially. Home made Gyro and I got attacked for throwing it in a bowl instead of eating the bread. Arabic family is like "WHAT! WITHOUT THE NAAN THERE IS NO POINT TO EATING!!!" I'm honestly finding that I like protein style more and more as time goes on. When I cook up lean ground beef into a burger, I prefer wrapping it in lettuce th
  15. To me, it means train hard and train safely. In Aikido, we have a similar phrase "Tap early, tap often." The idea is not to just take the pin to the most extreme until your shoulder gets pulled out of the socket (which has happened), but rather to train slowly and incrementally so that you don't even realize when you've progressed. Improvement as natural state of being.
