  1. Hello again, does anyone remember me? I skipped the last challenge and wasn't that much online the last 2 months. Just needed some time off. There was a lot going on in my life and I needed a lot of time for RL. As you may remember I applied for Ninja Warrior Germany last year. After the first invitations went out at the beginning of Feb I thought that's it, just one casting and you are not invited. I was a bit sad but since I had a sports break for 2 months (elbow, psychological stuff*) and I gained some weight (7kgs, mostly fat) so I was good with it. Then I h
  2. Hello Rangers! I ran with this group for a while when I first started writing on this site, and I have come back since I am working on some more agility based training starting this week So this decision started with a random conversation with the SO, and a groupon for a ninja warrior gym close by to my house. I have lifted heavy for at least 2 full years, and competed (placed 2nd overall) in a strongman comp late last year. Since then I have kind of been floating a bit, with not much direction and waning motivation. My body really likes to gain muscle, and really likes to kee
  3. Hi Nerds! I found this forum because it's an "epic quest for awesome" for the desk jockeys, nerds, and average Joe's. I'm an average Joe working my way up through the ranks in the American Ninja Warrior competition. I started my journey a month ago and now looking for support from people to help me through this process. It's a long road ahead to qualify, soooo I'm going to be posting my progress. I will be sharing everything fitness. Those will include what I'm digesting on a daily to keep my fitness up. What's hurting (i.e. grip strength, ego, soul...). I'll share my journey every
  4. Hi Everyone I always say, the third times a charm, so here's to hoping my 3rd battle log will survive where the other 2 have failed. Honestly, it's been over 6 months since I touched my last one, and back then I was a very different person. Back then, I was weak. A shell of the Werespartan I have transformed into. My name is Ryan. I've gone by Wolf since I joined the boards back in September 2012 but most people like to call me Wolfie . I'm married to the love of my life, Heather, and we have 3 beautiful, handsome boys of our own: Racer, Declan, and Orin. We also just added two additions
  5. Gotta do some more moving. I didn't perform at the level I wanted to during the last challenge because my desire to be more awesome lost to the temptations of video games. Not my proudest time. I think I've got most of it out of my system though, as long I don't do something stupid like buying a new game. This challenge's goals will be very similar to the last one just minus the sucking. And as always, the end game goal is Ninja Warrior Grand Champion. Goal 1: Last time I said I'd exercise at least 5 days a week, 7 if at all possible. During this time, I settled for "good enough" too many ti
  6. It occurred to me that the land of the prophecy is across a big puddle so I'll build a bridge to the other side. This challenge's new target is working on my bridge. I want to be awesome at them. My current stats: Bridge: I can get into one but can't hold it for more than a couple seconds. Running: Usually takes about 25:30 - 26:00 minutes for 5k. My best recent 5k was 5.02km in 25:17 at an average pace of 5:02 min/km. Handstands: Usually last about 1-3 seconds, best is 6 seconds. Handstand Pushups: I can do up to 6 box pike presses or I can do a handstand pushup if I only lower about 5 inches
  7. My last challenge mostly went well except for the number of serious workouts I did, that was the biggest thing I was unhappy with. I'll be putting a greater amount of effort this time into getting those done no matter how much I don't feel like doing it even if it means I only do a single set of pushups and nothing else, just gotta do something. In other news, I've only done a couple runs in the last couple months, both of which were 5km and took me almost 29 minutes and I'm really not happy with that so my main target in this challenge is improving that time. My main quest, or the prophecy, i
  8. A little late but here I am once again, ready to challenge myself move toward the prophesied land. In accordance with the prophecy I need to increase my balance and I really need to increase my strength in my arms. For the first time in a while I'm setting a goal for the end of this challenge rather than simply having multiple tasks to accomplish during the challenge. My current target is the handstand. Currently I can do a wall plank at around a 45 degree angle for somewhere in the area of 30 seconds. I am going to be able to do a wall handstand for a full minute within the next six weeks a
  9. My most recent challenge, if I'm being perfectly honest, went much worse than I expected it to. I got lazy, and I screwed up. This time I'm going to fight as hard as I can against the laziness that's dominated my life until now. In accordance with the prophecy, this time I'll get it right. Let's get right to it. Goal 1: Simple, just exercise three times per week as a minimum. These have to be workouts where I seriously work some part of my body to the limit so that I'm actually gaining something from it. If I do more than three any extras are allowed to be more leisurely but of course workin
  10. During my first challenge I leveled up as a Ranger, but during that time I saw an important prophecy that told me what I need to do from now on, and the nature of the ultimate goal I must strive toward. In accordance with the prophecy, my main quest is to become a Ninja Warrior Grand Champion. I know this is crazy. I know this isn't a 6 week or even a 6 month goal. 6 years would be a lot closer. I don't care how long it takes though, I am willing to commit to this and I will never stop moving towards this goal as long as I live. During the last challenge I started watching a lot of videos fr
