  1. Hello Assassins! Even though I am a monk at heart, I've decided to do a whole lot of body weight training this time around, thus putting me with you crazy lot I'm really excited, I'm not going to lie. Without further ado, here's what I have in store for the next round of badassery: Coulson is my spirit animal. Shut up. Falling off the cliff is not an option. [+3 STR +3 STA] I want to be able to do a pull up and I want to learn how to do so before end of the year. At the beginning of the challenge I can lift myself only an inch or two, so I want to build up strength to do a real
  2. Just hit level 7 and I think it is time to incorporate some Titansgrave and Critical Role into a challenge so let's do this! Titansgrave is Wil Wheaton's RPG show on Geek & Sundry, and Critical Role is a D&D game run and played by voice actors (also on Geek &Sundry). I enjoy them both as they tell cool stories and entertain me ... plus make me want to play/run more games! Quest 1 - Umm ... I just rolled a 1. Seems I've still got some hip/knee issues going on ... to fight this I'm going to incorporate more stretching into my daily activities. So 3 time a week I'm going to
  3. Boot Camp was rough, but doable. I made it through the physical challenges, completed the weekly quests assigned by our Headmistress (Blaid), and developed strong relationships with my fellow recruits. I learned a lot during that first six weeks. I learned new strengths, and identified weaknesses. I learned that a good support team is crucial to success, and that supporting others is a lot of fun and helps me clean up my own issues. I also learned that I really, really want to be an Assassin. A bit about me. Last May (2014) I was an obese man, not just overweight but pretty fat. I was a
  4. Round Four begins. Mark it, dude. Time for a look in the mirror. Three challenges ago, I was an assassin. I worked on handstands, threw my kettlebells around, and worked on running with moar speed. Gains were made, and Pav saw that it was good, said that it was good, and it was good. Two challenges ago, I sat out. Life got the better of me. I didn't stop working out but I couldn't bring myself to do another challenge, for reasons even I don't understand. But I itched, and I burned, and not in that bad way that makes you rethink your life choices, but in that good way that makes you reth
  5. "Dude, I'm too old for this crap." The last challenge cycle kind of sucked. I started out okay, but man, did things take a bad turn in July. I'm not quitting, I'm refocusing; therefore the title - Return of the Jedi. This challenge cycle will put me back on track so that I do not lose sight of my main goal... Main Quest I have a four-year goal for where I want to be that I am breaking down into six-month increments. In short: Old Man, I am coming for you. When Jon Stewart beat the Warped Wall on ANW last summer, he was the oldest man ever to complete a City Qualifier course. I was 4
  6. For those of you who do't know me. I have been a shrimp all my life. I thought that's just was I was stuck with until Steve told me that wasn't true, so I'm trying to gain some weight and build some strength. Both times after having my last two babies, I got into big trouble. I was very underweight and weak. With #4 on the way I am determined to not let that happen again. Mini Main Quest: Gain as much as possible (muscle and body fat) so I will have reserves when little one arrives probably around late Dec/ early Jan Main Quest: Be able to do things. No more too weak or winded to even pla
  7. Hey guys! I'm returning for my third challenge. I have progressed a little in each challenge and I aim to see this one through to the end. No (illegitimate) excuses or life situations are going to keep me down and out. My goals are basically the same as the last challenge, but I am better prepared and equipped to take them on now. I'm also more determined! Goal #1 Level up my diet Go from Level 4 of nutrition to level 6 (based off of the Academy descriptions.) This means to go to level 5: "I consume a vegetable with every lunch or every dinner, replacing a normal carbohydrate or starch, for
  8. Hello friends! About halfway through last challenge I had an unexpected visit from the Shadows. I stopped everything. I have since told them to move on and I am ready to continue my journey to healthy weight gain and being in better shape than ever. Food I'm taking a bit of a different approach this time. I have decided to try keeping track of servings of different food groups. I will probably still calorie count the first week or so to make sure I'm still getting what I need and adjust servings as necessary. I'll probably come up with some kind of point system for this. Fit Body weight w
  9. The Padawans lazed quietly about the common room; the younger lay askew the divan, with one of her legs propped over its arm. The older, a boy, reclined in an overstuffed chair nearby. Both were giving their undivided attention to the media pads each held in their lap, listening through earpieces to the endless stream of thoughtless entertainment as it flooded their brains. Both straightened their posture as I entered the chamber, drawing their attention away. I am Eric, and I am a Jedi Knight. The Order of the Jedi was established long ago in a galaxy, far, far away, but as their own domain
  10. This will be my seventh challenge and in honor of that I'm looking back over my past six and pulling inspiration from them. Its a time traveling theme ... just go with it My six previous challenge have an interesting theme when you look them over. I'll leave the list under the . The theme is fairly simple ... I run, I bike, I do bootcamp/TRX, I try to limit booze, I do photography. This MIGHT have to do with my Scout philosophy. I mean really I keep doing the same ole same ole and expect to get different results ... I might be insane Well not really ... when I was marathon
  11. So on the heels of last challenge being mostly a success, I have decided to tackle my one weak spot from the last challenge, running... As it is getting closer and closer to the 13.1 mile Tough Mudder, I really need to run longer distances. I have done a couple of 2 mile runs but that is not going to cut it for this next race. So here is the plan. Goal 1: Muscle Retention (+2 STR) I plan on doing the "You are Your Own Gym" workouts still in the morning because my wife is doing her version as well. For the Tough Mudder, I will need some more upper body strength for the race also so I am g
  12. Fellow Recruits - I received this mission file via a thumb drive placed in the drivers seat of my vehicle at 0700 hours. I had previously been a member of an agency that was corrupted and rightfully dismantled (you can access my previous mission logs below) and was working on re-legitimizing our work when certain life events forced me to drop out of active duty. I have not made contact with anyone from that life until now. I have no choice but to accept the mission below and would appreciate any support or intel you can afford me. Wish me luck - I have been working at an office job during my f
  13. Hi everyone!! This is my first quest with the assassins and I’m really excited to be here!! From the beginning I've really waffled between the Rangers and the Assassins, and I think that lack of focus will kind of show in my goals for the challenge. I ultimately chose assassins thanks to the helpful advice of our assassin ambassadors -- mostly because bodyweight workouts are part of my long term goals, and while I am working on weight loss, quite of my few personal/long-term goals for the next year land me squarely in this category over the more cross-fitty training of the Rangers. I'm
  14. Okay I have been working on the program a while. Mind you I never really stretch with my workouts which I have been told can lead to issues, so yeah. 30 squats 15 push ups 15 knee-push ups 15 full crunches/lifting my legs instead/with my upper body 30 lunges 15 diamond push ups 15 d-p on knees 15 sit ups 15 side kettel rows each side 25 second plank 45 jumping jacks repeat once more I do that every second day 3 times a week. every day I don't do that I do M-100's because I am still to blubbery to run without getting really winded. I warm up by running up and down a flight of stairs six times.
  15. So a big part of why I only get in one bodyweight a week is the fact that I get DOMS not the day after, but the day after that. It then hangs on for four days or so. I'm not sure what this means. I can complete my reps well, sometimes so well that I feel like I should go up to the next level on the progression, but I am completely laid out from doing anything more intense with my arms than using the salad spinner for almost a week. In the fall, when I did 3x/week bodyweight, this was not a problem. I was doing a shorter program, and easier progressions/forms, but still. I am warming up. I
  16. Okay so I have had this challenge in mind for a while but it's taken me forever to get around to posting it. I've already been working on these so here 'tis: My main quest is still anti-fragility with the additional goal of dropping my BF% down to 20. Sadly, as I haven't been doing much the two weeks between challenges, I feel as though I lost a some ground so it's not starting over but definitely backtracking a bit. This is not good since I've got two mud runs during this challenge. Time to step it up. So in harmony with this I will: 1) Keep record of everything I eat AND post it. I don
  17. Main Quest Week long back country Elk hunt (September 2015) Followed by a warrior dash in October Motivation 2 kids and a wife that needs me long term. An Elk hunt with my father before he is unable. Fleet of foot Last challenge, I was walking about one hour 3 times per week and I started to transition to Jogging. I’m going to continue with this goal and by the end of the challenge I will be doing 5 min walking/5 min jogging splits. My goal is to jog 30 min total within one hour. Points as follows: >30 min = 3 stam, 1 con >22.5 min = 1 stam, 1 con >15 min = 1 stam Push the e
  18. Hey Guys! So, I'm back and ready to start this challenge. I would definetely call my last challenge a success, but I was not so great at updating my thread. I hope that by incorporating that into one my mini-quests, I can be more successful on that front. I'm finding that I am least successful when my quests include home workouts. I'd like to change that. So, I'm looking for lots of accountability on that front and in order to get that accountability, I kinda need to update. So yeah . . . .without further ado . . . Main Quest: 1 Unassisted Pull-up Mini-Quest 1: Long story short -
  19. Goodness, how did it get to be Wednesday already? I'm still sticking with a fairly simple challenge this time. I had some success with the last one and that was very encouraging. I just need to focus on doing it, not if I think it's working or not. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a shrimp trying to gain some healthy weight and take better care of myself in general. #1 Paint the Fence No less than 1,800 calories a day. With three little ones, I sometimes struggle with getting enough to eat. When I pass this, I'll bump it up a bit. #2 Wax on Wax Off Body weight workouts 5x a week. I
  20. A quick summary: Last challenge I set workout, food, and soda-free life goals. I managed to kick soda, started off okay with both food and workout, but quickly went back to being a french fry loving couch potato. Okay, that's not totally accurate, but in the grand scheme of things I'd say my grading for workout was a C at best, cooking for myself was a C, and soda-free was a B+. Now, even though I was on the struggle bus the entire time, I did make progress. First, I joined a gym full of the most awesome people ever. Second, I managed to lose five pounds! Third, I kicked the soda habit. I
  21. So, hi. I'm nervous as, but really excited. I made an effort 5 years ago to get in shape, but it didn't work out. I didn't have a solid plan, or much support. I can tackle part 1. I'm hoping the forums help with part 2. I've been around a size 10/12 for the last few years, ever since having a full-time desk job. I used to enjoy dressing up, but my nice shirts and dress pants stopped fitting and I didn't want to buy new ones. I hide in loose sweaters and hoodies and jeans. I don't like it, and I want to change. My inspiration for my first quest is Sailor Moon. (I'll do some silly theme some

    For those that are interested in following along on the Heros Jouney with me, I am going to go ahead a post the different workouts each day. Day 1 comes tomorrow!
  23. Check out my current challenge here! And start reading about progress for that challenge here on my log! This is just a place for me to log my progress and for you all to come chat with me and keep me accountable! Also, I will post neat crossplay, cosplay, and fitness things I find or generate here. So, this is the start! Hi. I'm Dandy. I crossplay, I'm trying to get more fit, and I'm trying to get my degree in library science! I'm pretty friendly. I cycle a lot, I like doing strength training too! My idol is Erwin Smith from Attack on Titan and he is my fitness inspiration! Let's talk and
  24. Hi all, my name is Phytomancer, and I am back. Last week, I have a very embarrassing but neccessary surgical procedure. The mark is small, but the doctor told me not to exert heavy physical exercise until further notice. But as everybody knows, superheroes (and super villains, like me) only get stronger after every defeat. So do I! Disclaimer: This image is only representative. You may find the real me slightly more physically alluring, that is, if you are a dwarf like me. This guy's just too elvish dontcha thang? The winter holidays is almost over, and Santa has done his job, and i
  25. Hello! It's a me, Mario! Ok not really. Shawn here, if you don't know me yet, lucky you! After reading all the rules about the challenges and the guilds, I just couldn't get into it. To be honest, I was never interested in those types of RPG's. As a kid, I was more of a Mario player. My childhood consisted of dodging turtle shells instead of arrows. So to keep true to the purpose of Nerd Fitness's idea of "Level Up Your Life," I created my own challenge for the journey my girlfriend and I are on to build strength, lose weight and live a more happier life.
