  1. Knowing the evil that has tainted his body will not give up its hold easily, Myrik decided to change his focus. He reached into the soft bag containing the focus stones to grab the power stone. His hand barely brushed the stone when he felt a surge of power run up his arm and into his chest. He grabbed the stone and held it in his open hand, then watched as a red mist swirled inside the stone. The mist formed various figures engaged in power building activities. Myrik decided to focus on these power building techniques during the coming weeks. Goal I Power This month
  2. After pouring over the codex he discovered a month ago Myrik decides to delve deeper into the ruins the ancient vault was found in. As Myrik enters the lower floor he feels a strong overbearing evil weighing down on him. Using some of the methods he discovered in the Grey Codex he was able to fend off the evil but not before it left its mark on him. Against his gut Myrik push on into the room. Upon entering the room he activates a few more glow sticks and studies the ancient reliefs that show what appears to be the “Jedi” that where mentioned in the Grey Codex. As Myrik looks closer at t
  3. While investigating a ancient vault Myrik happened upon a old codex depicting a way of life, that could lead to Harmony and Victory. While he doesn't know what this mystic "Force" is he decided to attempt the way of life. Goal I: Strength: Continue my NFA level 4 bodyweight work outs, 3x a week Bonus points for 4x week Goal II: Power: Work on more explosive exercises, Plyometrics will become a staple in my exercises. Goal III: Knowledge: I have an upcoming qualification board for my job that I need to study for. Study 15 minut
  4. OK, I did a little better than that, but I still didn't really live up to my own expectations. Howdy, I'm Thrillho. I think I was here last year sometime, maybe the year before, but I am generally over in the Monks' Dojo. I enjoy boxing and MMA, and I've been more focused in slowly reducing my excess weight (down to 255 from 268 so far this year, 238 at my lowest last year and 288 at my highest last year, so... it's a struggle). For this particular challenge, I need to focus more on the strength that my body is lacking. I'm still heavy, but I need to worry less about
  5. So I have been training for a few years now, I am 20 years old and weigh 94kg. I'm not too strong, last time I tested my strength I was able to do following: 1. Squat: 120kg x3 2. Bench: 100kg x2 3. Deadlift: 120 x2 . I used to train mainly bodybuilding style with a 5 day split. Lately (last 4 months) I tried to incorporate a bit more strength work, powerlifting style, and really got to like it quite much, But I do miss the bodybuilding style. I don't want to train purely for one "type". I want to be strong, athletic and look good at the same time (duh... like almost everyone...). So I
  6. Challenge 20 Recently I've been inconsistent with my lifting and nutrition, hell Weds I made it all the way out to the garage in my gym gear started my workout then blew it off because I was tired. I have been working some enormous hours at work on a new project and neglecting everything else. I need to get back on track and re-focus on what's important to me. The good news is my neck has improved a lot, I'm starting to be able to do some of the movements I've missed out on over the last 18 months. This challenge I will be channeling Winston and his war time spirit for my goals: https
  7. Checking in and starting my next challenge! I'm currently down 23.2lbs and loving it! Over half way! Only 9.4lbs to the first goal of 210, and 19.4 to the second goal. Since the start of the last challenge I lost about 4lbs. Had a difficult time for a couple weeks as my grandma passed away but i'm using my strength to remember her and continue going in her name! I did also acquire my first belt in Krav Maga! On to level 2 It was one of the hardest tests I've accomplished. Both physically and mentally challenging. Around 30 weeks or so and the level 2 test will take place! I've updat
  8. Hey there my fellow rebels. I've recently gotten back into fitness and as such, I'm returning to my first love. The Circus. I've had a thing for the circus for a few years now, and although my love for it had developed later in life, it still fill me with childlike wonder. Currently I am looking into making a workout for myself that will help me at least pretend I'm in the circus. So far I'm going to work on my physical strength, endurance, and flexibility using a bodyweight routine and some extensive stretching. My question: are there any skills I can work on by myself that fit with the theme
  9. Here is my list of goals for this challenge. I'll fill out where my starting point is at a later point, but wanted to at least get this up here. Goal 1: Eat at least 80% paleo. Allowance of 42 Non-Paleo Tokens (NPTs) (accounting for 3 meals and up to 2 snacks per day)Goal 2: Lose at least 2.5% body fat. Starting point: 28.58%Goal: 26% or lowerGoal 3: Complete the NF Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Workout 2-3 times per week. Life Goal: Get rid of 50 more pounds of stuff. Onward!
  10. Each week I will defeat a different baddie. From Three-headed dogs to revolting aliens, I will own them with my parkour skills and assassin strength! Enjoy Dudes!
  11. Hi Guys. It's been a while since i've posted here in the Nerd Fitness forums. I maybe absent in the forums but i've always been active in reading the articles. Anyhow, let's get down to business... As my first " return to the forums" post, I'd like to show my Squat. This is 90% (295 lbs) of my 5RM (325) Front View Side View I'm having some minor "tingling sensation" in my right knee. I think it's not yet quite alarming but I just want to prevent any major injuries that might happen soon. Today, I tried to do a wider stance in my back squat. I don't feel any pain whenever i do heavy s
  12. I'll get started tomorrow. Just deciding some goals. Since the end of the last challenge I've got a new job for next school year as head of department, and my girlfriend and I got engaged, and I can get into all but one pair of trousers despite weighing exactly the same as I did about 45 days ago. I'm more interested in seeing everyone else's challenges than my own this time, they're more entertaining somehow! I like the ideas.
  13. The line in the sand has been drawn. I have created a plan of attack and success in this quest is destiny. My inner warrior is about the be born. The quest has been there for the last ten years, waiting for me to be ready for it. I have gained the knowledge and have decided to create my legacy. This entails dropping approximately 20-30 lbs of bodyweight. At a height of 5'3'' that will put me at 115-125lbs. This will not be done by sacrificing muscle. The loss must be fat, while retaining and building strength and fitness. The route on the map is clear. 1. Hit the gym for strength tra
  14. I've been looking forward to this for a while. I joined NF about two weeks ago, and I've been doing my prep work for the challenge. A bit about myself, I'm scrawny, weak, and miserable. I started working out using the UFC Trainer for the XBOX Kinect, and have seen some noticeable differences over the past month. I've actually enjoyed pushing it, working out, getting better, and I keep at it as often as I can. Nerd Fitness gave me a new perspective; a way to plan out how my workouts will go, and what goal I can achieve at the end of them. Since we have some challenges here, I'm going to list
  15. I'm looking for some advice on adding some intense cardio to my week. At present I am eating well, 70-80% Paleo, non-paleo is to help me with carb shortfalls. Lifting 3 times a week: Mon: Back squats, Upper body work Weds: Cleans, Push Press Fri: Front squats, DB rows and DB press Other days: Walking and once a week swimming. As you can see, not much cardio, although I get out of breath supersetting my weights and a fit test on a running machine tells me I'm "above average". I love squash and used to play amateur comp at a low level (bottom division but I don't care I enjoy it so much)
  16. GRRRR, ok, seriously, HOW DO YOU PUT A VIDEO IN HERE?!? Oh... it does it automatically... wierd... What's this about limits? Sorry, I don't know none. What's this about some DB limit? Sorry, I can't hear none. You can take a little cruise down the river of booze, Act all poor and defeated. Shout to the mountain some boo-hoo blues, But I'll stand here and repeat it: I'm an Earth Rocker! Everybody hear me now!? I'm an Earth Rocker! Everybody get the message!? *ahem* Sorry, just had to get that out of my system. I've learned a lot with the last challenge. I learned a lot of what wor
