What is Absolver? Absolver puts players behind the mask of a Prospect, who has taken a sacred vow and chosen to join the Absolvers, an elite corps of combatants fighting to maintain stability in the world. Monitored by the Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire, players will wander these forsaken lands and encounter other Prospects online in order to learn their place in this world and eventually become Absolvers. Along the way, they will learn new combat styles and attacks, and acquire better weapons, powers and armor. Battles between warriors are an intense real-time flow of attacks, dodges, feints and counters, with all aspects of gameplay customizable, including combat styles, weapons and even individual attack sequences in the player’s Combat Deck. Build a team of warriors to fight side by side with you in the dungeon mines of Adal (PvE) or put your skill on display in dedicated combat arenas (PvP) scattered across the land. The game comes out at the end of the month but I can't contain my excitement! This is most likely what the game, For Honor, should have been; with dedicated servers and ranked matches from the get go. Hi all!! Welcome to the challenge! This one's going to be lighthearted and straight to the point. I'm rolling with forward momentum right now and I want to keep things churning at a steady pace. How do I do this? By kicking so much ass my feet hurt! I'm using the upcoming online melee action game Absolver as my theme for the next 4-weeks and if all goes well, I'll continue this and make it a 2-part challenge (since the game comes out 08/29). How exciting! The goal is to move from the n00b inspired Prospect and work my way up the ranks to become an elite Absolver. I'll need discipline, strength and a healthy balance among my work and home life to see me through successfully and I have just the plan to make that happen My weeks pretty much stay the same unless we have an event or a birthday that throws things off a hair, so, I can expect a lot of the same stuff week in and week out. This can be good because I know what to expect and can plan my weeks out way in advance. This could also be bad because a week that looks the same as every other week can be boring and have me stray off into the wilds. Balance is the key, yo! I keep talking noise about using my KB's, Indian Clubs and battle mace more but I barely messed with them last challenge. Boooooooo! That really needs to change since they are free to use...I mean, I spent money on them before...but now they are free....but before they weren't...ahhhhhh, dammit! You know what I mean! TO THE GOALS! Goal #1: Hey Wolfie, you should try some GVT! You really think so?? Hmmm, well first, let me see what GVT is before I agree to it. What is GVT? It's also called German Volume Training and apparently it's pretty boss. My mortal enemy when it comes to training plans: time. Some programs just have too much stuff and I never have enough time to complete a whole workout. When you add in warm-up, cool down and time to shower off and get ready for work...forget about it. I realistically have about 45 solid minutes of actual workout time so squeezing in something like GVT with a recommended 10 sets of 10 will be tight. But hey, I'm already around 6-7 total sets on my big lifts anyways because I'm always moving up weight until I get into the weight range I'm targeting. Let's punch this program in the face! Goal: German Volume Training 3x a week for the next 6 weeks/5-day cycles. Biohacking is a must so we'll see how this goes. Being that this is new it's all subject to change but I'm going to give it my 110% Goal #2: Hey Wolfie, why do you suck at jumping rope? HEY! That's not very nice, sir...or ma'am....but you're right. Why do I suck so bad? It's not so much that a suck, but my one foot hopping speed is SLLLLLLOOOOOWWWW. Like....whoa, dude. Speed ladder, much? It's embarrassing. So, with this goal, I want to increase my foot speed and quickness by adding in jump rope after each set or every other set of my workout. I started doing this last week and really enjoyed that time in between sets....this is also when I realized how slow my one foot speed was. Goal: Minimum of 3x rounds of jump rope in between working sets. Track each foot speed for :30 seconds at the beginning and then beat that foot count at the end of the challenge. Goal #3: Hey Wolfie, keep eating, keep fighting, bruh! I think I might need food to stay alive, sooooooooooo, thanks? OHHHH! You mean with the whole fasting thing and adding in more volume....I see, now. Yeah, I think you're onto something there. Since I'm pretty good at letting myself know when I'm hungry, I just need to be extra prepared on training days and make sure I'm ready to refuel. I will continue to fast for 14 hours with a 10 hour eating window and just consume more calories/protein. And since Heather's been back from California, she has awoken her inner health nut and wants to start eating as clean as possible. So much so, that we cleaned out the pantry and tossed a lot of stuff then donated the rest! I had JUST bought a pack of Ritz PB crackers too. I decided to take those to work and distribute among my teammates so they didn't go to waste. With GVT, I'm going to need to refuel and keep on my game better then ever, but I'm certainly up for the challenge! Goal: Continue to do my 14/10 fasting regime and help Heather meal prep. Goal #4: Hey Wolfie, you should Pray more! Aint that the truth. I pray a lot...but somehow that never feels like enough. So, I want to step up my prayer game or more like, I want to step up my game as the spiritual leader of the house. 2 things: tithing and reading the Good Book. Tithing needs to happen 100% every time I get paid. God deserves his 10%. And reading the Bible...it's something I've never done. The plan is to finish the Bible through and through. The plan? Goal: 2 chapters a day and 5 on each weekend day + daily devotional's and general Prayer Warrior business. BOOM! I'm so excited to get this challenge under way! I feel like I'll have to work for some of these goals and that's a good thing. I don't want this to be easy by any means. Thank you all for joining me on another journey through the wild lands of my mind. Feel free to hang out and shoot the breeze with me Wolf
