  1. The new year is traditionally about reflecting on the past year and looking forward to the next, and that's exactly what this first mini-challenge is going to be about. As lifters of heavy things, our training is arduous and our gains slow over time. It's not uncommon for it to take months to increase a lift by just a single increment, especially after you've been lifting for a while. On the other end of the spectrum, when first beginning, the lifts may increase quickly at first, but then you stall out, have to reset and decrease the weight, and take weeks to work back up to where you were bef
  2. Bro's and Swolemaidens, You have fought wars, slayed epic monsters and rescued fair maidens or squires. But, now it's time to feast in the halls of Bralhalla. Now, there are a couple ways to feast! Challenge 1: MFP High Score That's right. You know you're going to eat it, we know you're going to eat it, Grandma knows you're going to seconds, might as well as add up all those calories of Boar and Mead. Track all those calories (best reasonable estimate) and post it here. Name total
  3. Bro's and SwoleMaidens, We Warriors have a little bit of a reputation of being a little isolated from the rest of Nerd fitness guilds. We know what we like to do, put our earbuds in, listen to loud music, make ugly faces and loud grunts as be bang our heavy ass weights around. Talking to others is verboten. But are you getting the most out of your workouts? Are there things the other guilds do that maybe help you recover? fix deficiencies? change the monotony of your workout? Maybe increase your conditioning? This Challenge period, I challenge you to try something

  5. Tuesday, January 6, 2015 I began the new routine today. They say it takes like 20 to 30 some days to break old habits and to make new ones - I don't care what the exact numbers are, just as long as I get it into my routine. So I'm going to try and log what it is I'm doing when I can remember. Seeing it everyday hopefully will make me realize just how bad off I am and how desperately I need to do this! Fasting Blood Sugar: 105 Water: 16 oz so far Exercise: Walked 15 minutes - alternating minor incline Food: I've only eaten when I've been hungry and I've made sure to cut what I do eat i
  6. Greetings, fellow warriors! I'm brand new here. Ooh shiny new, as in just joined today. I thought I'd give a brief intro to my warrior kin before I lay out my challenges. My geekery I'm a Tolkienphile. I love the movies, the books, the collecting - the whole bit. I even study Tolkien via online courses. I have many nerd passions, but this one runs the deepest. I also love playing MMOs, which I can happily combine with my Tolkien love in Lord of the Rings Online. My icon is my dwarf Rune-keeper, whom I capped just a couple of weeks ago. I'm into a lot of other geeky pursuits, including at
  7. Having Daily or weekly class challenges for EXP would be very motivation to game minded nerds like myself.
  8. NOTHING IS TRUE, EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED. I have always fought alone. But one man cannot defeat the templar order, so I have joined with my fellow assassins. Together, we will cleanse the corruption from the holy city of Rome. Together, we will forge the Brotherhood. If the title and opening lines didn't give it away, and since this will be my first Assassin Challenge (did my first with the Rangers), this challenge is going to be Assassins Creed themed. Based off of the pure Epicness that is Ezio Auditore. A little backstory, this will be my 2nd official challenge, and since I ended up unw
  9. Okay, so like my title implies, it's been a lot of half-assed (or less) challenges lately. Also to note, I think this is the latest I've ever posted a challenge, wheird. Anyway, this challenge is going to be 100% commitment. If you want to see changes, you need to make changes! I'm really trying to put myself, and my health and fitness goals first. I live by myself and don't have kids, so right now it's quite realistic to do. I know that in my last challenge I talked about trying AIP (autoimmune paleo protocol) but I spend a weekend ago prepping for it, and I don't think I can do it
  10. Hello, all. I'm not brand-new to the Rebellion, but I'm recommitting today for the coming year. I am 31, and hoping to have my first child in the next few years (I'm not trying now, as I'm teaching abroad in Japan, but will probably start next year or a year and a half from now). For those of you who were into fitness before and during pregnancies, what kind of goals did you set for yourself? i want to be in the best place physically ( my doctor is already giving me the "older first-time mother" rigamorole) for the challenge of being a healthy mum throughout the whole process. If you were
  11. Not quite sure how to do this. I thought it started today, not yesterday. Oh well... Okay, going to start. My main quest is to get to a healthy weight and be fit enough for my future which will hopefully be in a job as a prep cook and for being a better cosplayer. To do this, I will stay on Weight Watchers and start by slowly losing ten pounds, although I plan to lose fifty or so. I will also keep up a regular exercise routine that will give me strength and energy to last for a long time. (CON, STR, STA) Thirdly, I will study hard in my classes and do my best in whatever task I need to
  12. Silly Dolph Lundgren title is inspired by my friend who is joking about me becoming Dolph Lundgren with my new lifestyle. I don't really want to look like him, but let's call it like that To avoid spamming challenge thread and keep all exercises in 1 log, I will log all here. 2.1.14 Warmup 10min Pushups 3x20 Hanging leg raise 3x5 Pistols 3x3 Pullup hold 1x15sec Chinup hold 1x25sec + 1x20sec Plank rotation (front, side and bridge in each set) 3x30sec each / bridge only 15-20sec possible Stability ball back extension 3x20 Stretch 10min 3.1.14 Warmup 10min Burpees with pushup and jum
  13. Book One I have lived in hopelessness for so long now. I often thought that there was no way I was getting into shape. It's impossible, right? Well, I refuse to accept such a concept! I've already completed my first six-week challenge, and I'm getting ready for my second challenge starting this Monnday! I really can't wait to get started, so I already have...kinda. As an aspiring assassin, one of my goals is to become light on my feet, stealthy like a ninja! So when I went down the block to the mailboxes to check the mail, I walked as quickly and quietly as I could, sticking to the shadows.
  14. Quick post to let everyone know that i'm sitting out this challenge, but not sitting back during this time. I was sick with a respiratory virus for the first week of the challenge so didn't get my goals planned. However, I had a lot of time to think while I was recovering, so here's what I'm doing with this time: Taking a writing course to get my book started and well underway. Moving my exercise equipment (treadmill, kettlebells, etc.) to a room above the garage. It will make a perfect home gym and will give me more room to do bodyweight exercises comfortably. Looking back at what I've lear
