Let's move on to this nightmare world of known as my 19th challenge!! *** ***Awesome Summaries Index*** Week 1 Summary Week 2 Summary Week 3 Summary Week 4 Summary Challenge Summary
Last challenge the first few weeks went pretty decently. Then I got the flu. Like THE FLU. Like, a week on the couch drinking tea and shaking my fist angrily at the sky kinda flu. However, it was a chance to spend time catching up on my favorite MST3k episodes when I wasn't curled up in the fetal position stuffing cough drops into my face. If you haven't seen it, Space Mutiny is probably one of the top 3 (ok, MY top 3) MST3k episodes of all time (right behind Mitchell and Soultaker). Describe it, I just can't, so here. Watch this: And revel in Smash Lampjaw's endless amazing list of meathead names. Since I've returned to WA I've been working out at Globogym. No, really. If you read The Historical Annals of Bro-ness mine would be listed as the Ur-bro-gym. Just last week I heard one bro call another bro--who was doing curls a mere foot from the mirror--"pump daddy", for what I suppose were obvious reasons. It's Bosu shrugs and non-ironic muscle tees as far as the eye can see! And in a way I love it: the pure, shameless bro-ness of it all, so I've named my challenge accordingly. Quest: Be more meathead. You know, get strong and all that. Because when in Rome. This is pretty much a continuation of my last challenge, which has been all strength-based. Eat. Meat and vegetables. And whey. Since I've been doing crazy things in the last couple months like getting more sleep, meditating, working out regularly, and generally taking better care of myself, I've noticed that rather magically (dashing?) my usual late afternoon sugar cravings have kind of... disappeared. This is a great development, so I want to keep on track. +1 point for every day that consists of Paleo + Whey. Total points possible: 42 Train: Lift heavy stuff 3x per week. I'm still on a 12 week Starting Strength cycle (week 5 I believe?). Lifts as of this challenge: Squat - 80. So yeah, let's talk about this. Why am I squatting 80 and benching 75? It's taken a good month of trial and error, but I think it all boils down to hips that are weak as hell. My glutes aren't activating, leaving me to rely wholly on my quads while squatting, which is only making my generally anterior tilted posture even worse (not to mention causing some very uncomfortable hip pain coming out of the bottom of the squat). As a result I've been doing lots of body weight glute activation exercises and this does seem to be helping. Bench - 75 Deadlift - 145 Press - 60 Total points possible: 16 (why? I'll be out of town for two workouts. But I'll be working out. Story below.) Sleep: In bed by 10. Bam. Total points possible: 42 Repeat? This is the bucket for my sundry life goals that are on the plate for this challenge. -- I want to finish 3 books, per usual, so one point per book. -- I'll also be heading out in a week or so to Mt Rainier for a four-day backpacking trip with a good friend of mine, which is why I'll be missing two lifting days. It'll be around 50 miles total. Four points for finishing. And you know... -- Lastly, I've been spending some time ramping up on iOS (as a long time platform engineer this is a change for me) so I'd like to publish at least one app on the app store before the end of this challenge (worth 5 points). Total points possible: 12Each goal will be weighted to 25% of the total.
