  1. EG was a rather ordinary hobbit. She was short, with rather large hairy feet, and spent a good deal of time with her nose pressed into a book. Her favorite books were fantasies and adventures. She loved to read about heroes on dangerous quests, finding treasure and slaying dragons. Sometimes, she would even imagine that she was one of the heroes in the story. Of course, she knew that she never really would go on a quest. After all, she was a hobbit. Hobbits stayed home. Why else would they have such cozy homes? Let others do the adventuring, hobbits weren’t that sort. At least that
  2. Is anyone else working on GMB's ring 1 program? I just started and was hoping to found someone else working on it too so we can encourage one another.
  3. Lucky Fire Dragon Goes for Gold even as temptation is high, there is no time for any half-assing over the next weeks, so I might as well go for it all 1. Golden body what better way to get golden than using GMB (Gold Medal Bodies) programs so of course I will stick to Integral Strength with all the given workouts, if I manage I will finish the program within the challenge, yay keep up pole training 3x/week get that core fire burning by hula hooping 5 min daily make it all sparkle by drinking 2 liters of water daily and

  5. Sorry for bigness When I first heard this song it really resonated with me. When I first joined the Rebellion, I was overweight, and insecure. Since then, not only have I become stronger physically, but I have developed and grown in many other ways too. These challenges are my fight song, I am going to fight to be a woman who is strong, who is overflowing with joy, and loves this adventure called life. My goals are my small, but very real ways of how I am continuing that journey. Goal #1 Track Food and Water on MFP- food tracked 6 days a week, water 5 days, goal for wate
  6. Challenge #12 SHIELD Agent Waldgeist in Hydra Prison I Infiltration This is part two of a three challenge cycle with ring training at the core, surrounded by kettlebell work and nutrition habits. Part one is here. OVERALL GOAL: to transform my body into a solid foundation for the life I choose. More precisely: 1) get a flat enough stomach so that I can workout shirtless without feeling embarassed and at the same time reducing the health risks associated with belly fat, 2) be able to move myself around in space as I need/want to Quest 1 - Survive th
  7. Welcome to my new home! After two years of NF challenges I decided to try something different. I am currently at a point in my life where daily movement practice isn't much of a challenge (as long as I'm not on vacation or sick, that is...), and I have found things that I actually like to do. I have become a fan of the GMB courses and have just finished 7 weeks of Elements. I may take the rest of this week "off" while I'm trying to get rid of the remnants of a cold and a crick in the neck, while I decide where to go from here. My options are: Another round of Elements (7 weeks, mostly Bear
  8. Challenge #12 SHIELD Agent Waldgeist in Hydra Prison I Fresh Meat Introduction: Hi, I'm Waldgeist, a 28 year old male German. I used to be very skinnyfat, but I've packed enough muscle on in the last years to consider myself average, not really athletic and I'm still carrying around some belly, but I'm working on it. This challenge will be the first of a three challenge cycle, connected by a consecutive Ring quest, a consecutive S&S KB and generelly being active quest and consecutive nutrition quests. None of these are new. I've been doing similar quests or speci
  9. Main goal - Follow the (rings) program! Last year when I was in a climbing funk KBGirl was super awesome and helped me modify GMB's Rings 1 to better suit my strengths and weaknesses, but before I got around to start it my climbing took an upswing and put the program in my underpants pile. This makes me feel a bit guilty because I really appreciate KBGirl's help, plus I really do want to play on the rings. And get beastly strong! So now's the time to actually follow a real program like a good girl, 3x/week. This is a video of me messing around on the rings which shows roughly the level
  10. Hello everyone! Many assassins will know me, because I have partaken in quite a few of their challenges. I haven't finished them all, and sometimes the 6 week challenges are hard for me to keep up. Which is why I want to try out a battlelog. When I'm not here, I miss you guys. But the challenges can give me a bit too much pressure. I still hope that I will once in a while participate in challenges, but for now a battlelog it is! Meow! What I will do in my battlelogs: Every Sunday/Monday I will give a summary of the previous week. The summary consists of all the activity I did (workouts
  11. I'm Back!!!!!! Oooookay, sooooo.....things happened........some bad, some good, some totally INSANE and I had absolutely no focus past week 1 of the last challenge. So I decided to just put my attention on what was going on and lurk NF. Because I never want to completely leave here, you guys are too important. And it was so awesome that you guys kept an eye out for me. Now hopefully......things are settling down, weather is getting nicer, and I can start making sense of the resulting chaos. Time for a new challenge! Harley's 1st Mission Mace work continues. I smashed my 416 rep goal an
  12. And sometimes life gets all life-y............ So, new challenge. Wasn't sure where I wanted to be this round. I thought of returning to my battle log since I felt like there wasn't much new to bring into this challenge, then I decided that some currently stressful mojo might try to use that to lure me into some complacency. And that's the last thing I want so new challenge it is. Then I debated whether my goals still match up with the new description for the Adventurers and considered moving to the Rangers......but, right now I don't think I'm ready for any major chnages. This challenge w
  13. Greetings and Salutations to all. This is Sea Level, a prodigal rebel who joined NF many years ago when I lived at sea level. Now I live at 4,000 feet (1,200 m), but the name has stuck. I've come and gone too much, but I'm hoping my goals/programs (see below) and a four-week challenge will help me stay consistent and present here at NF. I've also recently been inspired to deal with my sloth and get strong. I have friends who are starting CrossFit, and while I don't know how on board I am with the whole CrossFit thing, they do skills that I'd like to be able to do, such as muscle-ups and ba
  14. Annyshay was raised on stories that her Gaffer told. Folks in those stories had plenty of opportunities of turning back, only they didn’t. Annyshay wants to be like the characters in her Gaffer’s stories. Her own story started a few years ago as detailed in her Quest. She wants to be strong, wise, and compassionate. Luckily, she joined the Rebellion and is working to become the hobbit she knows she can be. For this challenge, she will focus on nourishing herself with the healthful habits that she continues to build and refine. Goal The First = Nourishing Eating 5 experiments from E
  15. Goal #1: Elements practice 6x / week I finished the current round of the Movement Multivitamin, but before I get back to Floor 1 practice, I'd like to work on the basics some more. Enter the Elements program, where I'll be working on three movement patterns: Bear, monkey and frogger. While I have no big problems with the range of motion in any of the basic variations of these, I'm sadly lacking in strength and stamina - especially my legs start complaining after about a minute or so of froggering about. This could definitely need more work, so that's what I will do. The program will take
  16. Annyshay was rudely awakened by Navi in July 2015 (for more details, see her battle log). She has come a long way since she was first summoned to the Great Deku tree and swept up in an adventure far bigger than herself. So far she: listened to her fairy (start days with quiet time with God) found a sword (daily movement) bought the deku shield (mindful, level 5 meals) followed the dungeon map (GMB Elements!!!!) aimed the fairy slingshot (craving control habit) used the compass (tracking nutrition) recovered gold skulltulas (meditation, studying, and recovery) cut lots of grass (5-6 vegetable
  17. A Superhero Story In Paris by Lilith I’m a dreamer, and I love fantasizing. I love going to bed early, to live for a bit in my own stories. Stories I thought up based on universes from books and series. They are my escape. In those stories, I can be whatever I want to be. I can have magical powers, or be a parkour goddess, or survive outside with no other means than the weapons I carry. By itself that is not a bad thing, but I usually use it as an escape too. An escape from reality, when I don’t like reality as much anymore. Pressure from university, the struggle with my weightâ
  18. Lightning Goes Commando! What the Whaaaaaat???? It's Boss Battle Time! There is a 3-headed Hydra waiting in the wings and Lightning needs to level up her battle Paradigms before taking on this final challenge of the year. The Hydra has a Seasonal Depression head, a Holiday Food head, and a Holiday Stress head. It's an ugly beast and must be prepared for and taken down! In order to beat the boss, she needs to build her Commando paradigm, Medic, and Synergist. Commando Paradigm is all about dealing damage so Lightning will be following GMB's Integral Strength program. She will
  19. There is neither darkness, nor light; there is only the Force. Zane Kahn did not know if he had been fighting for three hours or for three days. Once, long ago, it had mattered to him. Back when he had been young, nothing more than a Genin with something to prove, he would have secretly stolen glances at the clock to see how long was left. Time, however, had revealed itself to him - a mirage in the face of the eternal reality of the Force. There is passion, yet peace. Serenity, yet emotion. He met the gaze of his opponents - five other Gray Jedi. Their faces were unreadable behind their
  20. Short introduction: Hi, I'm a 30 year old guy from the Netherlands and I own my own playground (aka a gym). We teach powerlifting, weightlifting, kettlebellsport and bodycontrol (Rings, Floor, etc). As i've heard is pretty usual for trainers / gym owners, I never seem to find the time for my own training. Therefore, this challenge is aimed at making that time. I prefer to play in the rings and on the floor. This is me, one and a half years ago. Goal 1: Playing in the rings and on the floor! Preferably 3 times a week. I will train 2 times a week in the rings, and once a week its "playtime
  21. Challenge #7 Waldgeist trains like a Werewolf Backstory: As William Waldgeist stumbled through the river of Valkyrie the waves clinged onto him, trying to drag ihm down and swallow his body into the deep dark waters. But he resisted their pull. This wasn't the first obstacle he'd had to overcome but it seemed like it was the last one. At the bank of the river there was a fortress and many people in black clothes were jumping around on the field below. With his last ounce of energy William left the water, stepped on to the field and collapsed. Later he awakens in an infirmary, the smells of
  22. Mad Hatter does stuff Thoughts on this and the previous challenge behind the spoiler. Feel free to skip ahead if you want to go straight to the good stuff. For this challenge I’ve decided to just do stuff. I don’t have any particular goals reeeally (even if it looks like it) and I’m just going to do whatever I feel like for a while. As long as I put in work and it’s useful stuff it’s all good. Goal #1 Train hard, stick to my priorities and have fun Even though I do best with focusing on one, at most two things I’m not going to to do that. I’m going to do all the thin
  23. Summer Challenge [ July 27th - September 6th ] Backstory "...." Challenger Overall Goal: Finish an OCR the weekend after this challenge ends (September 12th or 13th) and conquer every obstacle. Explanation: I've wanted to do one for ages, but there was always something that preventet it. Not this time! Last weekend I found out that there will be two races in September close enough to where I live and I decided that I'm gonna finally do it (either a Tough Mudder in Bavaria or a Spartan Race in Austria). There is enough time to prepare (I'm not starting from scratch!), I've got the financial
  24. Main Quest - Weigh Less than 160 lbs by 3/27/2015 From - this lovely artist, minionslayer Dungeon Map = GMB's Elements Any explorer or potential hero needs to know where she is and where she's going. She needs a plan, or you might say a map. Luckily, this hero stumbled across an excellent plan from Gold Medal Bodies called "Elements". It focuses on helping explorers develop "physical autonomy", which they describe as a balance of strength, flexibility, and motor control using a familiar symbol given to us by the goddesses. I want to move well, and I'm sick of reps and sets, so this
  25. Na regen komt zonneschijn, after darkness comes light! Hi, I'm KB Girl. Lamest name ever, but it's appropriate because my main quest is still competitive kettlebell lifting, with during this challenge the dutch national championships (July 5th)! My bestest set with the 24kg bell; https://youtu.be/gggR0Rlsycg Besides trying to be an athlete, i'm also a trainer/coach, gym owner, just opened my own dietitian practice, got a job on the side to pay the bills and i'm still jumping through the last of the uni's hoops so I can get my diploma. Needless to say i'm completely overwhelmed, spre
