  1. Hi! I figured I'd post my story here, and there might be a chance somebody will see it and become inspired. I stumbled upon NF while looking up recipes for kale chips. I was 16 when I found your website, and probably in the worst shape of my life. I would occasionally eat healthy for a week or so, and maybe do a few pushups a month. The first article NF article that I read was the Beginners guide to Pull-ups. I was intrigued, did a little more research, and discovered the NF blog. I was really impressed by the Beginner Bodyweight Routine and started doing it every other day. I also started mak
  2. My journey to becoming a curvy, strong, and flexable badass. I am currently working on : Flexibility- a full Herron with leg straight Endurance- run two miles without walking Strength- Squat: 3x10 with 75 lbs Dead lift:3x10 with 90 lbs
  3. Hey there! I'm new around here... just getting started. My first goal is to friend 5 people who have been part of this Nerd Fitness community for awhile, specifically people who have some experience, have gained some success, and who have been around the block. If my own goal is longevity, then it's best to focus on longevity. What better way to start out? I know this is only a minor thing, but that's sort-of the point! I want to get a few quick wins and build upon my little successes. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I want build momentum and move towards real successes. What
  4. The app I use to track my gym workouts provides a summary at the end, showing (among other data points) the total tonnage moved during the workout. Generally my workouts move about 10 tons. For my next challenge, I was thinking I'd set a goal of increasing the average tonnage per workout each week. So Week 1 might be an average of 10.1 t/workout; Week 2 I'd try to push it up to 10.5; and so on. Does this seem like a reasonable goal to set, or am I setting myself up for disappointment? Is it going to be too hard to increase weights in a meaningful way in short spans like that? My concern is b

    I was going to do last challenge but didn't...so my goal is to: Start working out regularly...to be healthy, more flexible and to reduce stress. Mini goals: I will work out 3 times a week doing bodyweight exercises and cardio 2 or 3 times a week. I will incorporate yoga poses at least 4 times a week to increase flexibility. I will work on breathing techniques learned in a yoga breathing workshop at least 3 times a week to help with stress. Life goal: I will save $300.00
  6. Hello, my name is Lolavictrola. I has a quest. This is a first draft of what will likely be a "living document". I'll draft and change and add, because I truly believe that our goals should be ever-evolving. 2016 Epic Quest Completing each goal will add x points towards my level ups! STA (Stamina): Athletic goals that boost my ability to move... for longer! STR (Strength: Athletic goals that boost my muscles! DEX (Dexterity): Athletic goals that boost my flexibility and speed! CON (Constitution): Personal goals that boost my career, finances, o
  7. Weighed myself today, my goal having been to break 250lbs. 247.5lb! *roars* This panda of magenta hue is a happy panda today!
  8. I've been working on pull ups for about 2 months at this point, even from before I found nerd fitness. I started with your stereotypical pull ups, just moving myself about the height range of my head - chin over the bar, head below the bar, repeat. After coming here and reading a wealth of information on the subject I found that a true BEASTLY pull up is done from a dead-hang, every rep. Just even reading that I knew I was in trouble, and it was humbling to even try more than one at the start. My goal for about the last month has been to hit 3 sets of 5 of true dead-hang pull ups within a bo
  9. Hello to all! I have been struggling with writing my goals for a bit, but after reading some of the great posts here I am inspired to get started with my first challenge Overall goal: to be the fittest I can be. This includes dropping fat and gaining muscle to drop one full dress size. Life goal: more organization in my home. I have a few baby steps I am working on to this end. Measured steps: by the end of the challenge I will have done or be doing the following-- 1. continue my paleo transition -- shift to only one cheat meal a week 2. increase body weight workout from one (curr
  10. HER JOURNEY BEGINS … The calm before the storm always starts with a classic story around a fireplace. While my home doesn't contain a fireplace, I have an unhealthy addiction to candles that could turn into a hefty fireplace if all burnt at once … so let us use those whilst I tell my story. I'm digging that cheese-ball introduction. Hello all! My name is Infinitely North, but you can call me Stacey. I'm a first timer to the Nerd Fitness Rebellion from the great white north of Canada. I found Nerd Fitness only a week ago, so I'm rather thrilled at my spectacularly awesome sense for
  11. So about 6 weeks ago I decided to actually do something about the way I looked and felt - for real this time. - Joined a gym through awesome discount at job (works out to about $24 per month with a rebate, which is fricking fantastic in NYC) and have been going at least twice a week, if not 3-4 times. May not be the highest intensity workout ever, but at least I'm not sitting on my ass. - Made it a thing to eat all my CSA veggies and generally eat less crap and take out (especially for lunch). - And probably most importantly, I quit smoking. From a pack a day to an e-cig to nothing at
  12. I Deadlifted my bodyweight!!! ... Twice! I get that this is still a pretty small number compared to what a lot of people are lifting, but I only really just started Deadlifts properly last week and I though it would take longer then this to hit that target. It gives me hope of increasing my lifts much more in the near future. Very happy I am also loving deadlifts and squats - Im sitting here at work wishing i was at the gym. That is definitely not something that I would have thought possible a couple of months ago WOOT!!
  13. Keeping this short and sweet- my 3 goals for this 6 week challenge are as follows: 1. be able to do 8 pullups on the smith machine 2. level up by cutting the negative self talk and replacing it with words of encouragement 3. rededicate to carb cycling by tracking food daily Not exactly SMART goals but they are realistic ones and stuff I know I can do! Good luck everyone!
  14. I am officially signed up to run in the 4:30 time slot in Kansas City on April 27th!! This is my very first Warrior Dash.. hell.. it's my very first official 5k! HA! This is what I've been training myself for and pushing myself towards with the current 6 week challenge. Building up muscle and endurance in an effort to DOMINATE THIS THING!! Any other Rebels going? Strife and I are going down together, but it'd be neat to meet some other people from the Rebellion. So excited!
