  1. Welcome back for another episode of The Exciting Adventures of JediNickD! It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away that I joined this site and started my first challenge.. World 1 was my first extended stay through 22 challenges. I took a hiatus from NF and came back with a new direction for my goals where I warped to World 2, which I defeated in a Boss Fight slaying some mighty big goals. In World 3, I continue to develop my fitness, getting my body in the best shape of my life, even with the Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis, Disc Fissures, and more. Through physical thera
  2. *peeks in* oh dear... Ive really let this go to poop I'm a first year medical resident in my mid-twenties in WA, studying and seeing patients. I am also a big fan of Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, Game of Thrones/ASoIaF, Animorphs, Outlander, Star Trek (TNG), and various other scifi/fantasy themes. Ping me if you play ESO! I would love to adventure with you. I'm also now into DnD5e and currently play and DM. I've fallen off the bandwagon here at NF a few times, but always worth it to try again and try to be a physician who is doing their best to practice what I preach, in a way!
  3. So I have a horrible posture. Also, I want to get hench. Before I get hench, I need to fix my horrible posture. My first hurdle, which I seem to have tripped on and fallen on my face, is my pelvic tilt. There are many videos on YouTube that have seemed to help many people, but I just can't do what they ask me to. For instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp8KPPffIJw If you skip to around 5:30, he asks you to tilt your pelvis forward. I just can't do that, I don't know why. Do any of you have any workarounds to this problem, or maybe any tips? It's my first time actually trying no
  4. In my past challenges, I have focused on goals for each week or even days at a time. For example, 50 katas a week or 10 kicks a day for five days and it seems that I do good for a week or two or three and then it goes downhill. Seeing how those challenges have turned out, this time around I am going to focus on goals for the entire challenge instead of daily or weekly goals. Since I couldn't really find any gifs of JCVD that fit my goals, him kicking the bad guy from Timecop seems appropriate. 1 - Kettlebell with kicks workout - 14 times Since the kettle
  5. HAHAHAHAHA. It was worth tendonitis just to get that challenge title. So, for those folks who’ve lost track at home, I’ve been having some tendonitis issues in my left knee for a few months, and mid-August I tweaked it really badly and I think it’s developed into ITB syndrome, so I’m spending this challenge doing rehab work and not inflicting any more damage. While I’m at the knee rehab, I have a couple of other nagging issues that need fixing, so I’m going to go for the three-pointer and include those in THE REHAB CHALLENGE. My twelve-step program:
  6. Full Blog Post here: https://airawear.com/index.php/blog/shoulder-stretches/ Hey guys, I just published this article about shoulder stretches you can do anytime (very work-friendly!) but I wanted to share a short-and-sweet version here for you. You must be either a young kid or a truly healthy person to have never gotten stiff shoulders in your entire life. Unfortunately for most of us, we don’t fit the above bill. That includes me, and probably you too. Maybe right now your shoulders are stiff. Tense.
  7. As Zeroh celebrates not being a tree anymore, a hooded figure approaches them. "I need your help. Yes, it's urgent. No, I don't have time to explain." And with a puff of smoke, everything disappears. "Welcome to Hallowtowne." "Thanks, I guess..." "I don't have much time to explain. My father, the mayor, has gone missing. Why he would wander off during the busiest and most important time of the year is beyond me. But I need you to impersonate him." "Impersonate?" "Correct. We are in the midst of Samhain preparations and if anyone suspects anything ha
  8. Hello people! First of all, a little introduction. I've been training in martial arts and working out in general from a young age, but right now and for the next few months, I won't be able to either enroll in a gym or a MA class (I've trained in Taekwondo/Kickboxing so far and I won't to mix it up with new MAs), so whenever I don't have access to machinery, I design my own home program. I am 177 cm tall and weigh 75 Kgs. Unfortunately, the only equipment I have is a pullup bar, a few lady weights up to 10 Kgs and my knack for invention. Last week, after I told my GP that I had frequent te
  9. Eirlys

    Eirlys: Revival

    I am continuing with my agile self-improvement processes, rather than setting up-front several so-called SMART goals - a system which I think has quite a few weaknesses! The term "agile" is borrowed from software engineering, rather than the exercise idea. I am definitely not physically flexible - but we will work on that... My current status is as follows: STOP: looking at newspapers' websites - CHARISMA - HABIT making strangers' problems my own (particularly, trying to give advice) - CHARISMA - HABIT crossing my legs/hooking one leg over the ot
  10. I think SMART goals aren't necessarily great. You have to guess for a month what you think you might be able to accomplish, and it's very easy to set yourself too much or too little to do, and then get impatient for the next challenge to start so you can go afresh. My approach this challenge will be: work out what the next best 5% (or 1%) improvement I can make to my life at this point deduce a corresponding mini habit work out how to integrate this mini habit into my existing habit cycles once I have successfully integrated it & feel confidence that it
  11. In any good alliance you need to be able to relate to, and understand your allies. Khajiit and Bosmer, working together. Apparently not as different as they look! This round I want to do a few things that involve more body-weight fitness, natural movement, and general health maintenance as I continue my board-study preparation. My goals will largely be focused on balance and getting needs met more than trying to make leaps and bounds in upping any strength metrics or something. Struggling to keep focused and on task is hard enough given I have to study for between 10-1
  12. For this next 4WC I am going to be spending one more month nailing down some good habits and foundation strength before I switch back to lifting weights more heavily. Goal 1: PowerYoga\Flexibility training 4X a week To be a true Shinobi I need to flexible and able to move my body with complete control and fluidity. Goal 2: Water!!! at least 100oz a day can have one cup of tea or coffee a day (no energy drinks) A Shinobi's body must run at optimal efficiency I need to flush out the amount of crap I have been eating and drinking...sorry NOS energy drinks we must part ways... Goal 3: Po
  13. Despite 2016's determination to start on a bad note, I'm going to try this whole "if you can't change your circumstances, change your attitude" concept. A fellow rebel pointed out that I was being kinda hard on myself for not being a smaller size and hitting more goals, despite alternating between lifting weights and being heavily injured for most of last year. Upon buying clothes that fit what I am, instead of what I want to be, I realized that my attitude wasn't the only thing out of whack- my posture had actually been affected by crap attitude and crap clothing as well. So here's what I wan
  14. Hello everyone I'm a freshly baked assassin, ready for my first challenge of this year. I have a big talk to give in week 4 of this challenge (3 weeks to prepare, that is) - well, okay, in the grand scheme of things not all THAT big, but it's exiting and new for me and there will be a lot of people listening who potentially know way more about parts of the topic than me, and this as a lot of potential to go both great or become a giant mess. So, I'll put all my energy of the next weeks into making it great! Or, as good as I can, at least. That also means that I won't have time to update here
  15. Like so many other mathematical words, adaptive also has a meaning in normal english: characterized by or given to adaptation. Thank you google. Fortunately, a few definitions later it basically says that it is something that can be modified . Currently, I'm suffering from a depression with exhaustion as my biggest symptom. I have no idea what I'll be able to do each week, so I'll have an adaptive challenge. I usually exercise a lot (cycling ~45-60 minutes a day, walking ~30 minutes a day, c25k twice a week and climbing once or twice a week on average), so I don't need more general exercise. H
  16. Back with my first challenge in a while as i need something to keep me accountable trying to form some new habits At first glance this isn't going to look very warrior-like, however i am still lifting 3-4 times/week, a habit which is fully ingrained now, and i think there must be other warrior folk who could benefit from similar things (who couldn't?). I foam roll and stretch after each session, everything here is in addition to that. Back story ======================================================================== I keep getting injured (shoulder and back). I don't like it. It's screw
  17. The further i go in lifting the more i realise what a number a 15 year desk job has done on my body and posture. I'm slowly coming up with a bunch of moves that i try and fit in every day in order to counteract what some people are calling a modern day cancer. I was just wondering if anyone else had any suggestions of good things to add, and for what? What i've got, broken down into problem categories is below. These are in addition to a balanced lifting routine.... Rolled shoulders/kyphosis --------------------------------------- Face pulls Band pull aparts Shoulder dislocates Handsta
  18. I wasn't going to post yet, but you all got me motivated. So here it is...my first challenge as an Adventurer! I'm trying out a theme for the first time, so be gentle with me! The best part of Pokémon was always the training, so I'm taking a leaf from their book. Main Quest: Improve my posture (Also keep losing weight, but y'know, themes.) I’ve noticed that I can’t sit up straight properly when I stick my legs out in front of me on the ground, which is kind of embarrassing. I feel like basic human anatomy should allow me to sit up straight. Motivation We had a health fair at work la
  19. Endor

    Endor needs to P

    --Challenge 18-- I'm going to P all over this challenge No not that P, this P! Goal 1 - Posture I got hurt in a car accident and the physio has advised me to correct my posture. It seems to be working but I need to keep my focus on it. I'm not sure how I will measure this yet.... Goal 2 - Paleo Carry over from my last challenge, slightly amended to 6 days of full paleo per week. Goal 3 - Programming It's looking like my whiplash recovery is going to take months rather than weeks. As I am limited in what exercise I can do and I can't play squash I've decided to do a more conven
  20. Goals 1. Posture I've realised that if I want to get anywhere in life, I need to sort out my posture as a keystone building block. Other important things like confidence and professional, relationship and personal success hinge on me standing tall, as I currently project totally the wrong image. I have to do everything to make this a #1 priority. I need to introduce more cues to remind me to check and modify my posture. I need to up the physio's exercises to more than once a day. I need to introduce further stretching exercises to improve my posture. I will brainstorm a list of reas
  21. So, I've got a big butt. And because of my poor posture over several years from sitting on the side of my bed or leaned over a desk playing video games, I've got something called a "Lower-Cross Syndrome" that makes my butt look even bigger than it already does, and makes it a bit more difficult to get proper form when doing things like squats. What are some exercises that people recommend for solving this issue?
  22. So, I’m just a little excited for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in a matter of weeks! As I was going back over some old 6 week challenges, I was reminded of Steve’s blog post about the Avengers from 2012. This led me to some of his other posts about becoming a superhero: How To Become A Superhero In 4 Easy StepsHow to Create Your Own Super PowerCombining my excitement about Age of Ultron with my desire to be a superhero, I shall become tenaciousglee: The Skinniest Avenger! Before I can take my place among Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, I need to hone my body and skills to be more li
  23. In my past challenges, I thought that I had good plans in place and simple goals, achievable goals. For some reason, they haven't worked as planned and even though I always start off like gangbusters, around the third or forth week, it seems to fall apart. With that in mind, I am going to throw all the specific plans away and do the plan of no planning. Instead of being detailed and strict with movements and goals, this time is going to be do what I do as long as I do something. My goal of better kicks is still the main focus but it's time to take a different path to get there. 1. Kick e
  24. After completing a true Whole30 back in January, I'm ready for action. Main Goal: Drop body fat percentage by 10%. Not going to happen overnight, and that's okay with me. Here's the plan to get that started and going. Goal #1 (+3 CON): Stay eating Whole30. I came off the Whole30 at the end of January and never should have. So I'm going back. I started last Monday and plan on keeping it going through the entire challenge. I plan to follow a good deal of their recommendations about meal-planning too, not just the required rules, with Steve's advice for losing fat tossed in (more fats on re
  25. The last few challenges, that didn't go so well, made me realize that I have lost focus on my main goal of improving my Karate kicks. It's time to go back to my roots and focus this challenge on making my kicks better. 1. Focus, focus focus on improving my kicks by kicking every day. If I want to continue improving my kicks and I really do, I need to kick more often. I need to do at least 1 side thrust kick and 1 roundhouse kick for each leg, each day. I know, anyone can do 4 kicks a day but I want to be able to do this every day and not have any excuses that I'm too sore or too tired to d
