  1. Introduction: Hi I am LilLionLamb (also Lil'Lion or Lion) and this is my first challenge! Yay! I'm trying to get myself to love running a little more, but otherwise I enjoy swimming, playing soccer and generally feeling stronger. I weigh 155 lbs and I'm in college so I'm trying to figure out time-managing class, studying and exercise. I like writing, and love reading. Main Quest: Lose 20 lbs by end of February and Deadlift 1x bodyweight Quest 1: Jog and Walk for 30 minutes a day (at least 10 min must be jog), 3 days a week. I haven't been going to the gym consistently, and I want to b
  2. What's up everyone? I'm Kenny. This is my second attempt at the challenge. My first faltered after a couple of weeks. I joined NFA in July, and since, I have greatly increased my exercise, got a gym membership, and I have been working on managing my stress better. I have also struggled with smoking on-and-off for since my teen years. I have laid them down again for the last few weeks, and wow, it makes a huge difference in energy and self-esteem! Anyway, over the past several months, I have gained strength and muscle, but I have also gained fat. My diet has not been good. My clothes ar
  3. Hi A few weeks ago my main challenge would have been to win my first weightlifting championchip. But I have a spinal disease so I can't do weightlifting at the moment. Maybe I can never do it again. So I can't name a good main challenge currently except getting my spine healed. But there are other things I want to focus on. I do strength training (powerlifting) 3 times a week but I hate doing cardio and mobility training so I have to work on this. Moreover my diet ist not the best and I want to change that. I would prefer to work on my strength but I want take care of my spine the next week
  4. Hi! Long-time lurker here (since February 2013 I believe)! I’ve been lifting fairly consistently for about two years now, but recently have been struggling to stay accountable to myself with my nutrition and sleep. So, I decided it was time to take part in the community and to give and receive the accountability that is needed. My interests tend to come and go, but bodybuilding is the one thing that has remained fascinating for most of my life. It wasn't until I found NF that I had the motivation to actually work toward building a stage-worthy body. Since I began in early 2013 I have gon
  5. Introduction: Hello! I'm Jozette (or zettarooski). I've been a long time nerdfitness fan, but this is my first six week challenge. I'm sorta active on the facebook group and attended CNF2015 in September. I am a warrior and enjoy strength training. I'm still a toddler in my strength development (as my trainer defines it) so I'm working on exploring new things and finding what in particular I enjoy. I have recently found a love for strongman type things and enjoy exploring that. Main Quest: My main quest is making sure I am healthy and strong so I can travel and hit all the things on my
  6. Since I put up my “first†challenge with a week remaining in the previous 6 week challenge, I am going to call that a trial run and start this as my official first challenge. First, a little about myself and some background... First, my name is not “Tom†(yes, you will have had to have read Lord of the Rings to get that). Although I am trying not to define myself these days in “professional†terms, I will make an exception here and say that I am an enginerd at heart who sold my soul to the “business†side several years ago. All was plodding along while focusing on my career unt
  7. Hey everyone! I've been lurking for several months and I'm excited to try a challenge. I'm a 5'11" lady and weigh 210 pounds with 33% body fat. I gained 50 pounds in the first three years of college (endless booze and brownie sundaes) and lost them over the past three years with food tracking/MyFitnessPal. I started lifting over a year ago, which I love! I go to the gym four days a week for bench, squat, accessory stuff, and cardio. Now that I've maintained at my pre-college weight for several months, I want to get my calorie intake back in check after some slacking and kick my cardio up a n
  8. For my first 6 week challenge, I will be using the island Lian Yu that Oliver Queen, the Arrow was stranded on as my theme. It is a starting zone of sorts, one that puts anyone unfortunate enough to wind up on its shore through dangerous trials. The first phase of Lian Yu will be all about adapting to the island: getting fit, avoiding injuries, and getting used to eating the food the island has to offer. Main Quest: Be lean, strong, and agile. I estimate that this would leave me at ~150lbs and around 15% body fat. In the scope of the 6 week challenge, my goal is to get as close to 200lbs a
  9. Heh, yeah, so I lived up to the dwarf fortress motto and lost my first challenge last time. So, here goes again, because losing I'd fun! Main goal: Get stronger. 1: Strength workout 5x a week. 2: 8 hours of sleep each day (this is indeed going to be a challenge with a newborn and a cat that insists on being fed at 5 am). 3: Build a squat rack and aquire more weights to finish out my home gym.
  10. Intro: Hey I'm James, and this will be my first challenge. I'm 23, and am currently working for a defense contractor (US) while I get my life sorted to start school again. I joined NF because I think being a part of a community will either help me towards my goals, or in the very least it'll throw an interesting change up in my routine which for the last year now has been basically soloing life. Main Quest: Lose 20 lbs. by the end of the challenge. Quest 1: Do Cardio 2-3 times a week (20-30 minutes per session.) I already lift daily, but I'm bad about skipping the cardio do to a myriad o
  11. Main quest I just got my very first pokémon. But we've got much training to do before we're ready for the road ahead. So lets get ready! To become all-around healthier so that I can direct my focus towards something more specific next time Quest 1; Feeding my new Fennekin Drink 2L of water daily A. Average of 7 days a week (by end of challenge) B. Average of 6 days a week C. Average of 5 days a week Quest 2; Winding down after a hard day of training Yoga 6 times a week A. Average of 6+ times a week B. Average of 5 times a week C Average of 4 times a week Quest 3; Pokémon league, here w
  12. Ooooooh man. My first 6 week challenge. I'm like a puppy that is all excited because of the stick and throw the stick and oops I peed myself. All the options in the world of fitness are open to me. I could base jump, rock climb, cross-fit, do earth push-downs, and even... run? Nah, I think I'll just lift heavy things. Main quest: Improve my working set in all four of the powerlifting exercises that I do by 30%. That's right, I want to be lifting one-third more weight than what I'm lifting now. So here's how the numbers break down right now: Deadlift: 315lbs Benchpress: 225l
  13. Due to the typical long story of 15+ years focused on career, money, obtaining "stuff", etc, I have come to see/admit that I had become terribly out of shape. With this realization, I have rearranged some/most of my priorities and have started the journey back to being me (and being able to do the things I enjoy!). I know there are a lot of philosophies on what "getting into shape" means, but to me, it starts with strength. I loved lifting when I was younger and am built (as my wrestling coach use to call me) like a "brick s*#t house". I started Stonglifts about 6 months ago and have start
  14. I don't know where I fall in terms of recruit, stat points, or progress. I consider myself at the back of the line. This is the third time I have started a new recruit challenge post, because I never end up following through. Anyway, I still want to stick with my main quests and not change what I have previously written. They're fine, I just haven't seen them through! My lifting buddy stopped lifting because he needed to focus more on cardio, which is why I think I lost my motivation to continue halfway through the semester. It would be wise to commit to logging my activities on here, which
  15. Totally new to this; I have no idea what I'm doing! A bit about me: I'm a 24 year old aspiring computer engineer, who has an awesome part time job with the navy during the summer. I'm 5'2" and I love anime, video games and comic books. I like to read too. Stuff. Main goal: Absolutely getting rid of this freaking belly of mine that I have for the last 3-4 years now. Goal 1: Follow a Paleo Diet for the challenge. I've already broke this rule a couple of times already the last week... 1) I ate a cupcake out just because it reminded me of my cousin's awesome cupcakes. I resolved to ask he
  16. Jumping in with both feet and a smile ! Next -- establishing a "battle log." First Challenge beginning June 8: Main Quest: Reduce BMI to “normal.†At 5’ 6â€, that’s 148-150 lbs. AND maintain it. (Measured: loss of 3-5# adipose tissue and potentially, waist size. Some lean mass may be lost but can be minimized through resistance training.) Strategy 1: Conform to “eating window†or IF regimen plus carb-reduced intake. Measure: daily periodicity and total sugars/gr of carbohydrates Strategy 2: Perform HIT (resistance) twice a week, 20 min/session. Measure: weekly “wor
  17. So I fell of the wagon on my first challenge, but I've gotten back in the weight room and back to challenging myself. My first goal is all about consistency. I just finished a few sessions with a trainer learning the Olumpic lifts and need to keep working at them to build the proper movement patterns to memory before I start adding much weight. A- 3x per week C- 2x per week D-1x per week F- 0x per week My second goal is focused on strength. I was making good strides on my Strong Lifts but due to the aforementioned falling of the wagon I am basically starting over. So this time around
  18. All right so this is going to be my second challenge. My previous challenge I was trying to make weight for my first powerlifting meet since a bad injury and ..... I did!. I also did well in the meet so I was really happy. I ended up setting PRs in 2 of my 3 lifts (squat and bench) missed my previous dead PR by 15 pounds and set a total PR. So I am super happy about that and already pumped to start training for my next meet August 30th. This next challenge will set me up for that next meet. I will be focusing on 2 distinct areas, strength gains and weight loss. Now to most people, th
  19. Edited to reflect updated goals. I started the year weighing 340 lbs and very unhappy with my life and where it was going. I decided I couldn't stand being stuck in that same rut and started making changes. I now down to 298 lbs but I have felt myself running out of steam recently. I've decided to start doing the challenges to help kick start my motivation. Main Quest - When I started back in January my first goal was to get under 300 lbs by the end of the year. I'm not 100% sure what to set my goal at now so for this challenge I'm not going to set a specific number just setting goals
  20. Intro: My name is CatInTheRack, I'm male, age 19, 145 lbs, 5'10, with interests such as lifting, boxing, psychology, and apparently being really anal about diet and exercise if friends are to be believed. I've been lifting for around 9 months so still pretty new, took me a while to find a routine that worked for me. I did stronglifts for a while and now I'm on a variation of Wendler's 5/3/1 that has two cycles plus a deload every 6 weeks. This six week period starts on June 8th so I figured I'd be crazy not to sign up. Main goal: Increase strength in big compound lifts. Quest 1: Increase max
  21. Hello folks, Looking forward to the 6 week challenge kicking off, so it's time to write up some goals Main Quest The start of the fitness journey for me has been my increasing weight, and the waistline to go with it. My son was born in January this year, and I realised that I didn't want him to grow up with an overweight dad, gradually creeping towards obesity. I started out at 100kg 10 weeks ago, and I've shifted just over 5 so far. The goal is to reach 85kg, (or 32" waist trousers, whichever comes first...) I've mostly managed this through fixing up my diet, calorie counting and adding a
  22. Greetings Travelers! Motivation: Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail is a strong, confident woman that is always looking out for her friends and protecting them. I want to be that type of person. I want to be strong enough physically and emotional to take everything life throws at me and protect the things I care about. Main Goal: Get Fit - In Appearance & Physically Goal 1: 0.5lbs/week average weight loss. 2 inches combined off naval, thighs and upper arm. Scored on a scale: 0.1lb/week average = 20% I'm using MyFitnessPal to track calories and have my calories set for 1,750/day average ove
  23. A little about me. My name is Daniel and I’m a few days away from being 36. I work repairing PCs and my passion is Professional Wrestling which I take part in by being a referee. Last summer I did fairly well at eating well and working out, I lost 2 stone and was stronger, faster and generally felt much better day to day. Too much slacking and complacency and the weight has come back (most of it) and worst of all I’m struggling to referee a show! Nobody wants to watch the referee get blown up from dropping to the mat to count and getting up a few times. I've a big (for me) show in late Se
  24. So here it goes... After the last 15 years as a professional "Competitive Drinker" I've decided to seek employment in a new department. I am currently in the process of obtaining my amateur "Junior Strongman" status. Even Though I am several years past the age requirement, I figured with my boyish good looks, and If I shave right before competition, I should be able to pass for 16. On a serious note, I'm tired of being fat! I have been hitting the gym with my wife for the last 6 weeks off and on, but not sticking to a diet or alcohol regimen. I had enjoyed powerlifting before I injured my shou
  25. Hey everyone, I have decided to post my goals for this next 6 week challenge. A little bit of a background is I was very heavy into Powerlifting leading up to an injury (tore my Achilles' Tendon in Feb 2014 playing basketball). This had about a 9 month recovery and coming off of that I was overweight. Not by a ton but about 20 pounds bigger than I was pre-injury. I have already signed up for a competition on May 30th and have the goal to walk in and not have to worry about cutting weight. I have already started to lose weight and now have 7 weeks to lose 10 pounds, while keeping my str
