  1. Gonna spend another month with y'all building on the foundations of last month. My work hours have stabilized for the most part so itll be a little easier (I hope). Good things I need to continue: drinking water isn't as much a problem so keeping that up will help. I workout fewer days a week now but they feel more productive (I lift noticeably higher volumes) so I'm going to try to keep that system up until I plateau again. Things that need work: I still eat small meals and sometimes skip meals altogether. I need to work up to higher calorie goals and hitting my macros. I'm going
  2. "Tempered by the fires of Hell, his iron will remain steadfast through the passage that preys upon the weak. For he alone was the Hell Walker, the Unchained Predator, who sought retribution in all quarters, dark and light, fire and ice, in the beginning and the end, and he hunted the slaves of Doom with barbarous cruelty; for he passed through the divide as none but demon had before." - UAC Report File 9REIZDUR Hello fellow Warriors!! Some of you already know me, but for those that don't: my name is SheriffWolfpool or Wolfpool or Wolfie, lol. I've been around Nerd Fitn
  3. Hey ho warriors, I'm usually with the rangers or monks, but I've decided to add some muscle onto my frame so I figure this is the place to do it. I'll be adding baselines, and quantified goals over the next few days, but overall I'm looking to add about 10 lbs over the next few months. I'm a notorious hard gainer it took years to get from 150 lbs to my current 165 and it's because I constantly miss my macro and calorie goals every day. Things to focus on: -hit my macro goals. Priority on protein and fat (carbs are easy to hit) - drink more water. (32 oz not including my
  4. 12 Week Hypertrophy Quest Quest Goals: 1) Increase Muscle Mass 2) Decrease BF% 3) Increase Strength In All Lifts Overview/Details Each working set should be performed to near failure with 12 being the most reps you should perform and 6 being the lowest. This workout utilizes supersets.Take a 1 minute break between each superset. Supersets are grouped by letter before them. See Quest Objectives for context. Increase weight on each set by at least 5lbs. Increase weight from week to week as well. By the end of the 12 weeks, you should be 10lbs+ stronger in many
  5. Hi friends! I'm new here and really excited to join a community of fitness-obsessed nerds like myself It was like a light switched on in my brain when I realized I could actually train myself to do the things my favorite movie/television/video game characters do instead of just sitting on my couch wishing I were that cool. It's been a long and ongoing journey of constant change and self-improvement, and I'm really proud of how far I've come. I feel like parts of me belong in each of the guilds but I picked the adventurer guild because I lost my first 50 lbs when I discovered my love of h

    Marathon, done. House, moved. Time to get back into weightlifting and saddle up. I have had a lot of things up in the air, but I need to get into a groove that works for me so I can get going forward on something other than “run a lot.” Goal #1: Get back into a weightlifting routine. 3 days a week minimum, I want a schedule that works for 5. That means I get my commute manageable and find a weight room that’s accessable. 3,000 points Goal #2: Track food and weight. I’m going to try to bulk up after losing so much upper body muscle mass to my marathon training. I
  7. It's time to get on the famous bandwagon again! And I'm PUMPED!!!! Things has been hectic for the last couple of months but I'm finally ready to do this! I'm going to keep it simple this time around also - just going to have two goals. RUNNING! 3 times per week I will go for a jog/run/brisk walk and I WILL love it! (I actually have a race 19th of May I'm training for) FOOD! I will limit my intake of sugar to two days/week. This includes everything that isn't "food". So candy, sweets, chips, soda, you name it. And you know what? I will love it! I will also try to
  8. It's the Godwin's Law of Anime...at some point, somebody's gotta break out this reference. Three, two, one--LET'S JAM! Now with NO food-related quests and NO measurement tracking requirements throughout the challenge. How will we cope?!?! Spike (STR+3) Let's keep this short and sweet, shall we? Spike takes many jobs as a bounty hunter throughout the story, but his one drive is chasing after Julia and Vicious. He has great perception and fighting chops to help him get the job done. My one job is to help my 3RM chase after my 1RM lifts while I w
  9. Anyone else go for some innocent clothes shopping and find yourself in a clothing war? I find that most/all women's shirt sleeves are way too tight. They fit everywhere else, but they just can't contain my guns! I'm not saying I'm super crazy swole or anything, but I would like some work shirts that don't look like the the sleeves are about to explode off. I know guys have this problem, but seriously, do clothing manufactures expect all women to be afraid of getting any muscle (or fat, for that matter) on their arms?
  10. My plan from the start was to drop some weight and body fat percentage until I have the fat composition I want, then start adding muscle. I started this year at 178# and 22% BF. As of today (March 26), I'm at 162 lbs and 18% BF. Pretty soon I should be around 158# and 16%, which I think will look right for my body (I'm a shorter guy - 5'6"). Though I've been working out consistently, I think the weight loss has mostly been the result of eating well - I've been taking in about 1500 calories a day, which represents about a 500 calorie deficit. Enough to lose a pound every few days. My plan is
  11. I posted this on reddit but I'll post it here too maybe it will be able to help a few of you So what is a plateau? a plateau is a sticking point where the body refuses to respond like it used to making it very difficult to build muscle or lose more fat. Plateaus are a part of the process, you will encounter them at some point. It’s inevitable. The thing you need to do is know how to respond to them when they come. Most plateaus can be overcome with a few simple tweaks to your training or diet plan. Most of the common causes of plateaus are stale routines and over training. Today we’
  12. Namaste Druids!!! Main Quest Stronger than before! OK, so thats an inside joke with my friend but for this challenge I want to be healthier in everyway. As always, time to be my own hero. Side Quest See how long I can avoid alcohol and my other sins, time to cut back on things that are considered vices so I have more time to focus on what matters Instead of drinking and what not, when Im stessed, I need to workout! Strength Quest I can barely bench 135, lets get that down and increase 1 point for every lift over 10 the amount of pushups I can do from barely 15 to twice that 1 po
  13. I recently finished my undergraduate degree and now have a couple of months to wait until I can start my internship. I was in a similar situation last year in terms f time frame and that's when I started my journey in fitness and also when I met the Nerdfitnes community and fell in lub. I have learned so much and really eager to learn more.For the last challenge on the last day I injured my self on some squats (No power racks at my gym), so now I have an anxiety when squatting so I'll be working on that during the challenge and possibly finding a new gym. Always wanted to join the warriors gu
  14. My introduction post can be found here Well almost at the end of my first work week during the challenge! Eating is going extremely well, I wasn't expecting to have any serious cravings and I was right. I actually haven't had any cravings really, except for a brief overwhelming desire for a latte. It's really helped that I've been trying to get my finances in order lately and be better at managing my money. I wrote out a new budget this week and was very realistic about my spending. Trying to stay under $20 a week for entertainment when I go to concerts so frequently was just an absurd t
  15. Hey y'all, so I've been following NF for over a year now, but this is my first time participating in a 6 week challenge. I've been lifting on and off for about a year or so, but just got back into it with a solidly structured program (Strong Lifts 5x5) about a month ago. I tend to eat mostly paleo, but the last two months I've totally gone off the rails with holidays, weddings, and general laziness. I'm currently doing my second Whole 30 as a bit of a nutritional reset, but it's mostly how I eat anyways, so that's not a huge thing for me to deal with right now. Anyways, here are my three
  16. Hey, So recently I've noticed a bit of an imbalance with the left side of my body. My right side does most of the work on my exercises (deadlifts, pullups, squats, push press). I've been reading up on unilateral training and decided to try it out, I incorporated it into my workouts but found that it extended my workout times from 45-50 min to almost 2 hours plus I found that after doing the unilateral exercises I was so tired that I had trouble lifting my usual weight on the other stuff. My question is two-fold, A) Should unilateral moves be incorporated into a program with fullbody movement

    Got milk?

    I'm want to get some perspectives on milk. When I was a globo-gym going person, a surprising amount of my fellow gym rats swore by milk, hailing it as the sweet nectar of recovery and gains. So what do you think the deal is: miracle liquid or dairy industry conspiracy?
