  1. I've always been a fan of the hashtag #becomingbatman so I thought I might use it as inspiration for a few challenges. So, here goes, possibly my first fully themed challenge thread... Okay, let's get going on the whole superhero transformation Get strong, get swole. Continue strength training three times per week. Unlike last time, I'm not going to be foolish enough to plan for 100% on this one again. Target: 10/12 sessions Get Superhero shredded. Track my intake. I've clearly not had much luck with this in previo
  2. My last challenge was kind of a disaster, but as it was said in Batman Begins, "Why do we fall?" I think this challenge is going to be more focused on getting into a groove. I also think that I wasn't really being active on this forum and utilizing the community for support. The idea of an alternative meal prep was also pretty bad because I underestimated my laziness. So anyway, here are my new goals: Fitness Goals 1. Improve Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu has been described as being a marathon, not a sprint. Taking this into account, I've decided to set
  3. Ryuu1011 Trains with the Bat Family Challenge 9 (2017 Challenge #2) Feb 12 - March 11, 2017 Continuing many of my goals from last challenge, with a few modifications. These lists correspond to my own goal setting philosophy which I came up with for my 2017 Battle Plan consisting of Auto Goals (goals on the back burner/ habits), In Progress Goals (long term goals that are works in progress) and Strike Goals (goals which are within striking distance of completion). Auto Goals (My Challenge Checklist): [X] Pay off $150 extra on my Student Loans [ ] 1 Date nigh
  4. Hello again Rebels! Ken The Brave here, back for my next adventure. Took a bit of a break to spend time with some friends on vacation last week. (Vegas is amazing. If you've never been, totally get on that!) I've done some tweaking from my last quest and decided to give my missions a face lift in honor of the upcoming Justice League movies. (Who else is excited for the Wonder Woman movie? About time right?!) Main Quest: Join (or create) my own Justice League Our best friends are moving away later this year, and we haven't really made any new friends. We
  5. Next week another movie about my life comes out. I like the guy playing me, he's a handsome chap. And is he built or what? My red and blue suit mocks me from the back of the closet, reminding me of a healthier time in my life. I may be getting old (82 last I checked), but if you believe a man can fly, then I believe I can still get back in shape. I have a world to save, whether by journalist's pen or warrior's fist. Lo, as I call her, is getting tired of me sitting on the couch watching reruns of my great deeds. She asks me what I stand for anymore. The truth is I stand for the McDonal
  6. @Rooks, @Gainsdalf the Whey, @Rookiebeotch, @mattyboy7one8, @ El Exorcisto I'm calling you out! All of you! Here's my big two: DEADLIFT, OVERHEAD PRESS. STRICT, BITCHES. NONE OF THAT PUSH PRESS CRAP. The goal? Deadlift 500 pounds. OHP 250 pounds. Same workout. I don't care how long it takes. First one in the group to pull this off wins. If you don't want to participate, it's cool. I guess. If you want to suck.
  7. Hey, BRHemp here (my name, not my hobby.) 44 yr old Batman wannabe. LV1 and 2 CF instructor who makes most of his own stuff. I have a family and child support so I'm not exactly rolling in the dough. I am one of those guys in green who run around in the desert looking for people and drugs that shouldn't be here. You might have seen me on Border Wars. Anyway, I'm always looking for people who want to get fit and have fun. Me??? I was 245 lbs two years ago with a 40 inch waist. Not the image of law enforcement that I should have been. I started doing Crossfit and loved it. Dropped 35
  8. The Batman villain pantheon is one of many of my true loves -- particularly that of the Batman Animated Series of 90's era. With villainesses such as Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Catwoman... well women on the comic stage have been downplayed a bit on the ingenuity and power spectrum. However, it was the 90's so the plots of Poison Ivy and Catwomen really struck a chord in me and my whackadoodle burgeoning hippiness. Such is my challenge this round -- Bring on the Whackadoodle Hippiness! Or, you know, keep trying to get fit so I stop creaking so much when I move, by being inspired by t
  9. Main Quest – Become Resilient People have accused me of becoming “consistent†over the last challenge. Sadly, this remains a struggle for me. Over the last few years, I’ve learned what works to keep me happy and healthy. Far too often, I wander astray because I “deserve some time off†or want to pursue some shiny new method or goal. Time to develop persistence and focus like Batman. Time to bounce back from setbacks even stronger and wiser. Time to become resilient. (BTW, grading = >90% - A 75-89% - B 50-74% - C <49% - F) 1) The Training is
  10. Back for my 5th?!?! challenge. Time flies when you are searching for gifs on the internet. Getting back to ass-kickery on this challenge. Fitness (+3 STR) ♦ 20 consecutive push-ups Is this crazy? I don’t know. I set high goals for myself and I can usually reach them. So I figure I’ll set the push-up mark high to really “push” myself. I’m going to steadily increase the amount of push-ups that I do day-to-day. (+3 DEX) ♦ Interval sprints once a week. Self-explanatory.
  11. I have been a Batman fan since childhood. I’ve watched him in movies, animated TV shows, and in the comics. He is relentless in his efforts to be in the best shape possible so he’s ready to face any adversary. But what people don’t often see in his stories are the countless hours of training he goes through to stay on top. He’s trained with ninjas, super heroes, and learned from his nights battling super villains. He maintains a strict diet to fuel his efforts. Since he has no super powers like super strength, super speed, or flight, he has to rely on his own body (and some help
  12. Time to Take on Two-Face!!! For those of you just tuning in I'm AverageJoe and I'm on a grand journey to go from Fatman to Batman. Last challenge I battled my way out of the pit (barely ). I ended the last challenge at 204lbs and 21% body fat, the lowest I've been in a LOOOONNNNGGG time! But that sub 200lbs/20% mark is still being elusive. I also used the FBI Fitness test to evaluate my progress, which gives you a grade based on performance in various exercises. I want to take a similar approach and take on some of Gotham's greatest Villains. First up TWO FACE!! TWO-FACE - GOAL
  13. Been gone for the past few challenges, but feel like this is the perfect time to come back. This is also my first time as a Warrior - spent all my previous challenges as a Ranger, but since I love picking up heavy things above all else, this is where I belong for now. Anyway, I'm starting off this challenge angry - mostly at myself. When I was first getting into weightlifting, about a year and a half ago, I attempted a front squat without utilizing proper form, and strained something in my back. It was painful for a couple of weeks but I've had it under control for the most part since then -
  14. BATWOMAN: ZERO YEAR Welcome back my pretties. So... last challenge... last challenge was a challenge. I did not do as well as I might have liked. I was prepared to battle Mr. Freeze, but unfortunately it was Calendar Man that really did me in. Well, you will not get me next time Calendar Sch-man, because 2013 was my time to learn of your cruel ways and 2014 is when I will slap you in your smug face. So watch out... I'm coming. I spent a lot of time at the end of the year and during my time off reflecting on myself and what this year has been for me. I spend a lot of time looking fo
  15. Today when I woke up in my most recent hideout I found a bird carrying another mission for the Assassin's guild... Why we still used birds when we can travel to other dimensions still confuses me... ASSASSIN For your next assignment you will be sent to infiltrate Gotham City. We believe that there is much to be learned from Batman so for the next 6 weeks you need to study and learn as much about Batman as possible. Study his moves, explore his city and follow him on his patrols. This contract begins in 4 days. A chance to study Batman and learn from him! 4 days hmmm I better st
  16. For those of you just tuning in I’m AverageJoe. This is my 5th NF challenge (first as a Ranger!) and I am on a grand adventure to go from Fatman to Batman! I nearly defeated the Fatman last challenge but he has been refueled and his bad habits strengthened by the holidays (Damn Cookies!!!). So like Bruce Wayne in Dark Knight Rises I have been dispatched to the bottom of a pit of dispair created by holiday cookies, wine and snowstorms! But like Bruce I can see the light and I have hope! In the true spirit of a Pit-based challenge I will be minimizing the necessary exercise equipment and
  17. Elastigirl sat in her favorite chair, reading a good book, sipping tea, and enjoying some dark chocolate. She thought she heard a small noise, looking around and seeing nothing, she resumed reading. Then she felt a small breeze blow over her, startled she looked up from her book but still she saw nothing. Puzzled, she got up from her chair so she could investigate. That was when she heard a voice coming out of the shadows “Did you think your training was over? It has not even begun. There is much to learn.†. Elastigirl strained her eyes trying to see who was speaking, “who is this, and
  18. Main Quest: Last challenge I started my path to go from Fatman to Batman. I struggled and definitely didn't get there, but Bruce Wayne didn't become the Bat in 6 weeks and neither can I! I need to continue on the hero’s path. I need to develop Strength, Endurance, Grit!! Also my motivation has been kicked into overdrive. My wife and I found out that we're expecting our second kid in April!!! So now I NEED to get my act together. Not only will I need all the strength and endurance I can muster to keep up with a newborn AND a four year old but I need the healthy habits cemented into me by
  19. First and foremost, thank you in advance for all your help and support. I look forward to repaying you all with a little entertainment in the future (see Life Quest). Disclaimer: This may be a tad depressing, but it has a happy ending : ) Background Story: (The Beginning) When I was in high school I was a nationally competitive gymnast. Needless to say I was in fantastic shape. However, I lived in a home that had a healthy food regiment and didn't really eat out. Leaving for college, however, did a number on me. Junk food, soft drinks, and alcohol. It was a hard time balancing a small budget
  20. For the last challenge, I signed up as a Ranger. However, my main goal (Strength + Size) is really more at home in the Warrior's guild... Main Quest: Size + Strength As you'll see from my prior challenge, I've always been a smaller guy. I'm finally starting to get bigger, and that's what I'm going to do during this challenge. Goal #1: Eat it Up: 3000 calories on rest days, 3500+ calories on work days STA +2, CON +2 I know the only way I'll really get bigger is to lift heavy and eat heavy. I think in the last challenge I did a good job on work out days, but not so great on my re
