  1. The Last Stand This time around my challenge will be themed after Sabaton's last album, mainly because of the hype for their show on November the 5th. The goals will be the same as last challenge and, just as I did with Arnie's characters, there will be no correlation whatsoever between the theme and the goals themselves. The Goals: Sparta We all know the story of the 300 spartans that faced the persian army in the Thermopylae. The source of inspiration for this song seems to be the movie more than anything else. Spa
  2. Superhero Challenge is here at last! I've had this one in the back of my mind for a minute, so this should be fun. It's also influenced by some things I've seen @Tanktimus the Encourager, @Sloth the Enduring and @Atrytone do over the summer, and credit for the title goes to @deftona So I wanted to do a very serious superhero challenge, and I spent a lot of time pondering who the right superhero to model on. Superman? Wonderwoman? The Flash? So many choices... I needed someone who hit all the points and inspired me and suited my personality.
  3. I'm shifting into battle mode for a 100 day transformation. I had a pretty horrifying DEXA scan which put me at 26% bodyfat, I've put on a ton of weight since my last scan 8 months ago. 5kg of fat and 3kg of muscle. The muscle is obviously great but the fat is not good so I'm hitting a 100 challenge to transform this. Dates: 1 April to 11 July Motivation: I'm going on holiday to Europe for 5 weeks, I want to be in great shape for that. Nutrition Goals: 1. See the nutritionist every 2 weeks 2. No Alcohol for the first month
  4. Hello, warriors. I am a 25 year old woman from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Started Crossfit about 8 months ago and fell in love with both the oly/powerlifting bits and the gymnastic stuff. Noticed my progress slowing on both due to lack of upper body strength and decided to run the Starting Strength program for a few months. That was two weeks ago and my current stats/lifts are as follow: Currents Stats and Lifts On SS Height: 1,58cm Weight: 55kgs / 120lbs BF%: ? Barbell Squat (5RM): 55kgs / 121lbs Barbell Deadlift (5RM): 67,5kgs / 149lbs Dumbell Bench Pr
  5. This challenge won't have a theme per se (we know it's going to hell after 3 days any way) but will be channeling characters played by the one, the only Arnold "the austrian Oak" Schwarzenegger. Alright, the Governator is not the best actor ever. That said, I have a pretty basic taste in movies! The characters representing each goal will have no sense or correlation (kind of like Arbold's movies). It's only to add some fun to the same goals as last challenge (I'm going full Tanktimus from now on) Conan - Conan the Barbarian/the Destroyer Conan will r
  6. Camp Nerd Fitness is only one month away! "We're not out here flipping tires to be better tire-flippers. We're doing it to be better period. Better, stronger, more determined humans. Capable of anything. To honor our bodies and sharpen our minds. To be more human." “You have to prepare for everything; this is the true way to build this, to build Batman.” Starting weight baseline: ~200 lbs. Reweighing pending. CrossFit Skill Metrics: CrossFit Metrics #BeMoreHuman Nutrition accountability measured thr
  7. I've teased a challenge with the Monks for a while, so here it is at last. Unlike most of my challenges, this will feature no theme and goals will be more like a bucket list of stuff that must be taken care of by the end of the challenge. Nutrition, workout and other stuff will still be monitored on my Battle Log. Let's get to it. Muay Thai Another thing I've talked about for a while and the main reason I'm Monk-ing (this is now a word) this round. It's finally time I took the step towards the dojo next to my home. It's closed for the summer right now, but I'm keeping an eye o
  8. NEW CHALLLENGE! Oh My God So Excited ... This is just a placeholder, though. I'll be back later today. Just wanted to let you all know what you're in for.
  9. Balsquith - Dragon Slayer reloaded My last challenge was a themed dragon-slaying challenge and was great fun and went well for the first 2 weeks until I went on holiday and let it fizzle out. This challenge will be almost identical (except for the fizzling-out part) with a few minor modifications to keep things interesting. I will start this challenge on a Monday as I found the change to a Sunday start didn’t work for me at all. This challenge bases itself thematically on the book I am reading ‘Die Mächte des Feuers’ by Markus Heitz, which is set
  10. Sandwiched I'm late to the challenge because I was on vacation. In Australia. Where I managed to catch one of these guys... One of four region exclusive Pokemon!! And it turns out I need to exit the challenge early because I'm heading to Mexico September 11th-17th (I'll be building houses in Tijuana!). Therefore my challenge shall be called "Sandwiched." Like sandwiched between traveling? Do you see what I was thinking when I came up with the title? I am very tired from Australia so maybe it's not clear to a well rested n
  11. Hi Rangers! After a month off, I'm back and ready to get stuff done. I'm focusing on 3 things this challenge: Core, and mobility from my hips to my shoulders. 2000 sit-ups by the end of the challenge. That's 500/wk, or 100/day for 5 days/wk. GHD's count as double! 8-minute Abs must be subb'd at least 1 day/wk NO BINGES for the next few weeks! I have dealt with disordered eating, and it's sort of like having been an addict. You always have to be on your guard for relapses. I've gotten tons better in the past
  12. Expect this post to be edited heavily in the next week! Today, I went back to work after my summer break. The students aren't on campus yet... that happens next week. This whole challenge is going to have to revolve around me implementing the good habits I've been trying to build while on break... during the stressful school year. Diet: bump up calories to 1800-2000 per day while still following 21day fix protocol. This isn't so much a challenge, just a declaration so I don't try to restrict too much, because in addition to crossfit 3x a week, even just t
  13. Oh hai guys! Kinda fell of the face of NF for a while there, but I’m back Intro The time I’ve been away has allowed me the room to do some much needed reflection and truly figure out where I need to put my focus. I’ve been dealing with some pretty severe waves of depression and anxiety for the better part of a year now, and especially since the start of 2016. There are definitely good days and weeks, sometimes even a month or more, but overall it’s affected just about everything I do in the real world - from work to socializing to diet and exercise. Tha
  14. Hi guys, I had a great workout yesterday and realized that I just plain love carrying weird sh*t. I was also relieved that there were no HSPUs. It got me thinking - What are your favorite movements? Oly lifts? Gymnastic moves? Anything that destroys your core? if you were going to combine them into a WOD, what would it look like?
  15. Balsquith - Dragon Slayer I love following-along with themed challenges but have never braved one myself, so this will be a themed challenge for beginners (read: slightly half-hearted). I have recently started reading an excellent book by Markus Heitz titled ‘Die Mächte des Feuers’ (something like – The powers of fire), which is set in 1925 in a world just like ours with the big difference being that Dragons have survived and are not very likeable. The book follows the dragon slayer Silena, a descendent of Saint George, who works for the church to hunt dra
  16. Hello everyone! This challenge shall be themed after one of my favourite games evah, The Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim. I’ll be channeling 3 in-game groups of characters: The companions, The Restoration Mages at the College of Winterhold and the Graybeards. The Companions: Tamriel's Fighters Guild has no presence in Skyrim. Instead, warriors seeking adventure and kinship may join the Companions, in Whiterun. The members of this brotherhood favour honor and physical prowess. The Companions represent training, 2 Crossfit classes and 2 Bodyweight sessions a week. The
  17. “Hither came Rurik Harrgath, wild-bearded and sullen-eyed, axe and bow in hand, a ranger, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the wild places of the world under his booted feet. A paragon of primal fury, his wild rage harnessed and tempered through a far-strider’s wisdom and insight. Keen senses, swift motion, and flawless strikes; to the barbarian ranger, these are the key to survival. He channels the terrible majesty of his great ancestors and finds himself mightier with their ancient blessings upon him.” Starting weight b
  18. Time for the new challenge! Really, it’s ridiculous how excited I get about these things. I am going to start a 3-part challenge cycle, in part because I had such a good run with my “Predator” series at the beginning of the year, when I was prepping to go on my trip to the keys. It was a good mix of short- and long-term goals, and since I have three months to prep for my next big athletic event, it fits perfectly. The whole series will be organized around the concept of “taking control” of some of the areas of my life that just constantly go spinning off the rails. I
  19. Greetings, fellow rangers. Please, ignore the fact that I am 10 days late for this challenge. I was just going to wait for the next one, but yeah. Screw that. I am a 25 year old living in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, who actually has this whole exercising/healthy living thing down. I Crossfit 4-5x/week, I don't eat like an idiot 80% of the time, I enjoy martial arts, meditation and I own a pair of Kettlebells for those times I am bored at home doing nothing. I am 5'2'' and currently weight 55kgs (110lbs). I decided to give NF c
  20. Welcome to the adventures of the Queen of Diamonds, otherwise known as the Other Red Queen! Don't worry, I'm the good one ;-) I'm full of love and enthusiasm, with just a hint of snark. None of that "off with her head" garbage from me! Unless you deserve it.... Anyway! My journey brought me to live in Bavaria, Germany this year. While I've been here I've refocused on creating a shiny new and exciting life for myself, which involves losing 60lbs or so and developing some cool hobbies. Status: I'm 30 lbs down, and have been adventuring around central Europe!
  21. No one...no one's ever made that joke before, right? I started CrossFit a couple weeks ago, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I've always wanted to play around with different ways of getting stronger—barbells, kettlebells, bodyweight...—but it's been hard to know how to try them all out in the context of consistent strength training. I know some people wouldn't necessarily call CF consistent strength training, but it's what I'm looking for right now—an equipped place I go to at predetermined times where someone has already done the programming for me and is there to help me
  22. Balsquith brings back the routine My last challenge was rather amusingly titled ‘Balsquith doesn’t give up’ and saw me disappear from the face of the earth after barely 2 weeks. The challenge itself wasn’t badly set up and I will be keeping parts of it here. This time around I will have 1 key goal, 2 goals to support it and a couple of additional goals. Key goal: Get up to my alarm everyday This goal is the key to everything, it is less about me being a heavy sleeper and groggily hitting my alarm clock and more about me already being mostly awake
  23. Seven years have passed since the Treaty of Coruscant established a peace between the Sith Empire and Republic. Now an ongoing cold war exists between the two faction as both sides vy for resources and struggle to gain the edge over the other however they can without igniting a galaxy-wide conflict, though there remain those who would see it so. Many grizzled veterans have returned to their mercenary roots and now act as hired guns for ambitious Imperial elements or find themselves taking whatever work they can find among the criminal elements in the seedy underbelly of the galaxy...
  24. Yaaay, it's down-week! I'm in Quebec, which means I'm in my "travel pseudo-routine": try to not eat too much crap, go to a formal gym at least once, try to hit 10k steps a day, and wake up in according to whatever time zone I'm in. Saturday, my trip is over and insanity sets in... Fortunately, I discovered a few weeks ago that looking at what's coming at me on a week-by-week basis is a great way to stay on track and not get into "panic mode." So here's the plan: Generally Do PT/Yoga/Mob work daily (7x/wk) CF (or comprable) as much as possible. Work o
  25. This chapter follows the time line of The Legend of a Banished Man. The wolf-warrior has survived the fight against Rurik, the immortal, but the injury he suffered has affected his shape-shifting. A Beast I Am The man was sitting beside the fire, carefully honing the edge of a broken seax with a small whetstone. Somehow tip had broken off inside the hunter’s ribcage taking the first rune of the engraving with it. His brother’s seax… now instead of “RAGNAR” the engraving spelled “AGNAR” “Agnarr… one who inspires awe”, he translated. “Not a bad name either” O
