Bullroarer Took posted a topic in Strength Training!So I am approaching my Deload week of my first mesocycle of 5/3/1. I used a calculator off the lifting report that had me put in my working weights and it both calculated my 1RM then turned it into all my lift numbers... but I need to add 10 or 5 # to my working weight,,, not my 1RM. I guess what I am asking is does anyone know of a simple calculator to figure out the next cycle or do I need to actually do the math. Is everyone doing the math for each cycle?
Pulling out of the dive...

ISO Math Nerd help
ShadowSilk posted a topic in Running, Swimming, Biking, Walking, HikingMy local walking track is inefficient. Supposedly, four and a half laps equal one mile. Well, once I've done four and a half laps, of course I want to go on and finish so that it's five laps. Makes sense to me. I'm trying to figure out exactly how far this is, and I have no head for math at all. Is it a mile and one eighth? It can't be a mile and a quarter... Help, please, for logging purposes, and so I can figure out time to distance ratios, etc.
Challenge 2 for Minx34: Operation Graduation
minx34 posted a topic in AdventurerHello again, everyone! Last time I started on the last week of the challenge, so this will be my first full challenge In honor of this, and for the fact I'm going to graduate from Stanford during this challenge (June 16th woot! ), I really want to push myself. Last challenge I started 80-20 Paleo, and so far I'm sticking to it. Now I'm setting some new goals: Goal 1: Jog/Run for 2.5 mi or 50 mins (STA: 4 | DEX: 1) I've never done a marathon in my life. I hardly ever run since I'm mildly asthmatic and my legs are angled differently. However, I feel that I use those reasons as excuses to not run ever. Now I want to build up some endurance. I'm going to be training to jog for 5k this summer using an app named Runkeeper starting on Sunday. It's gong to be my first time ever training to run, and my ankles are weak, so I'm nervous. According to the app, I should be able to run 2.5 mils and/or be able to walk/jog for 50 minutes. so that will be my challenge. Wish me luck! Goal 2: Remaster math mission 1: Algebra (Wis: 2) I've always been good at math, and I have taken calculus before. But I haven't had to take a math class in about 3 years, so when I took the GRE (and did decent, thankfully) I noticed my math skills are exceedingly rusty with many holes. Since I need to be quick with math for epidemiology next year, this is a problem. As a life goal I'm going to remaster math starting with Algebra. I will be using Kahn Academy in addition to old text books to practice summer, therefore I will use the Kahn Academy Algebra lecture to measure myself. If I finish the lectures with a full confidence in that level of math, then I succeed. Goal 3: Level 3 of the Angry Bird Workout (STR: 3 | STA: 2) I think this speaks for itself. Since I reached level 2 last challenge, I want to get to level 3. The rows and push ups are the most challenging parts for me, but I'll push at it. Goal 4: Reach intermediate Shakti Yoga (CON: 2 | WIS: 1) So I'm using a Yoga app on my computer (yet another app!?!?), and I am starting off with the beginner mode of Shankti Yoga. Yoga has always been difficult to me, but I want to get better. I'll succeed at this challenge if I am able to successfully graduate to the intermediate level **I'd also like to add: I told my parents that I would give them $20 each if I didn't lose 20 pounds by August 1st, which is when I move to Baltimore for grad school. So I really need to be on my stuff!!!!! If anybody has any advice on weight loss, or would like to cheer me on, I would really appreciate it. Since I don't have a job right now, I really need to keep that $40!!
Fun with math
marionette posted a topic in General FitnessWell I started out at 202 10 weeks ago, with 42.5% bf. 202x.425 = 85.85lbs of fat Now I am at 192 with 41% bf 192x.41 = 78.72lbs of fat Not too bad, until I look at my lean body weight which has gone from 116.15 down to 113.28. Boo! I have a (very)long term goal of 170lb at 20% which would put my lean mass up to 136. It is frustrating seeing that number go down when really I want it to go up! I hope that my running goals (marathon this fall) help with the overall weight loss, and lifting goals (120lb ohp, same dl) keep from me from lossing too much lean mass so I don't have so far to go over the winter attempting to really build that strength. I know that if it wasn't for strength training in my routines I would have lost more weight, but really I want to be stronger, not just thinner. Ah well. Venting over.
