  1. I bought a Muay Thai bag. It's 6 ft, 150 lbs, unfilled. Does anyone have any tips, or instructions, or links for how to fill one? I've found a couple of videos, on YouTube, but I wanted to see if anyone, here, had any other good resources for this. Thanks, everyone!
  2. Overview / Motivation: While things are still chaotic on the home front, there is a bit more of a routine emerging which opened the door for me to reconnect with my weights. This challenge will focus on identifying my current level of strength (after whatever I lost post baby being born) and start building from there. With all the new challenges with our new normal, this is also a good time in my life to reestablish my inner athlete - something I blog about which is focused on viewing our professional life (or whatever our current state of life may be) as an athlete. We focus on improving o
  3. Overview / Motivation: By the time this challenge starts I should be getting used to life with our second child and limited sleep. When we had our first child, I ended up going on a 4 month workout hiatus and I REALLY want to avoid that this time around. I want to embrace the change at hand and create as much of a daily structure as possible in order to be the best husband and father I can be while taking care of my health. It won't be easy, but nothing worth while ever is! Main Quest: Maintain my current fitness level while I adjust to life with 2 kids and no sleep
  4. I was originally going to post this is in the Gear Questions sub-forum, but figured it might be better here since Monks are the people who would primarily hit something. I'm in the process of trying to find a decent used heavy bag for my basement gym, and I'm curious on a couple things. First, what sort of weight do you guys prefer? I'm seeing anywhere from 40lb to 100lb bags. Second, is there anything to be careful of? I know previously I had one (like 10 years ago, was one of my roommates) where the sand or whatever was in the bag seemed to get really hard near t
  5. Overview / Motivation: I'm very excited for this challenge since I may need to do some temporary overhauls to my challenges for a while after this one. My wife and I are expecting baby #2 around April 20th, so I'm anticipating needing to go into maintenance mode for a while during our adjustment period to no sleep and increased craziness. To add to that fun, I am working to launch my blog before the baby comes as well, so likely during this challenge. So in the meantime, let's push some weights around and get after it! Main Quest: Hit the following benchmarks in st
  6. Hi all, A little background for you: 44yo, 308lbs (down from 350) with a target of 250 in July 2016. I'm doing treadmill/elliptical 4-5 days per week and I'm 6 weeks or so into SL5x5. I'm eating a modest deficit with a 2lb /week goal. Protein strong, whole grains only, nothing boxed. For some reason, I have the idea of adding a heavy bag to my home gym... I guess I want to hit some stuff and do something with my new found and developing strength. So, I'm wondering: Is there a good place for the heavy bag in my routine? Or will it just interfere with recovery from my lifting sessio

  9. We stood in the middle of the courtyard, formed into straight ranks. It was funny, when we first arrived at the camp, we had struggled to line up in the most basic fashion. Under the watchful guise of the training sergeants and their intense training regime, we learned quickly. Most of us had arrived soft and weak, not at all ready for the sergeants to break us. Now though, we stood tall and strong in the heat of the harsh Rakelian sun. Our backs straight, eyes forward, we met the eyes of the training sergeants as they walked around us. Every one of us had earned the right to
