  1. The Great Push Up Dare @x Valkyrie x is trying to earn charisma and bravery points, and embrace the weird (https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2012/09/20/embrace-the-weird/) by boldly doing pushups at the airport. In a sedentary world, it can take superhuman feats of bravery to step forth and do exercise while the rest of the world sits. In order to encourage one another to show the world movement is good, we have challenged each other to the Great Push- Up Dare. Valkyrie will perform pushups at the airport , and I will choose another public place, such as my front yard to do push ups. Do
  2. So recently I've been experimenting with different variations on push-ups, for different training effects, and ended up making a video summarizing the various things you can do to make push-ups easier or harder, or to train different muscles. I think I've included pretty much everything that's useful, except for weighted push-ups, because no-one should need to add weight to a push-up Hope you find something here that you can use for your own training, and apologies for the wind noise you can sometimes hear - the weather's usually quite breezy where I live! EDIT: here's
  3. Quick intro! I'm karinajean, 38, live in NY state, commute to NJ about an hour each way (so lots of time in the car). I practice tae kwon do several times a week, take weapons and boxing classes in addition, and am trying super hard to do really good form push- and pull-ups this year. I have a crazy mean (yet super sweet) cat and live with my husband full time and my stepdudes 1/2 time. I motorcycle, knit and spin, and am endlessly ignoring how messy the house is. I'm an assassin because I like doing all the things, and because I want to be able to do push-ups and pull-ups -- if I can do those
  4. things I learned last challenge: * I need to refresh on the bodyweight stuff. running is an easy exercise for me but I *know* that I can't overcardio myself, I need strength. my body is great at building muscles, I need to help it to succeed. * I am not very diligent at doing my -UPs practice, and if I really want to get to a pull-up in 2015 I need to crack down. * apparently I really can exercise 2-3x a week and eat at 1800 calories (ish) and I will lose weight. that's good news for the future! I'm glad that maintenance is higher than 1800 calories. * that thing where I kept doing tae kw
  5. OUR HERO HAS VANQUISHED THE COLD HARSH WINTER. it's definitely spring. the garden needs gardening and the motorcycle is on the road. and with the changes in season comes a simultaneous CHANGE IN BUSINESS LEVEL. y'all, I'm so glad that the snow is gone but I am starting to feel very threatened by the spring. like, there is SO MUCH GARDENING TO DO. DOES OUR LAWNMOWER EVEN WORK? I am so busy! so I am setting up the most boring challenge ever and you will all just have to keep in mind: all the sparkles come from ME. I have no fancy pictures, I have no flashy gifs. I HAVE NO SHOWER RIGHT NO
  6. OK. I would use this image in EVERY challenge if I could because I love it that much. but this time it's actually pretty applicable: It's winter. I am tired. I have a lot of things I want to do, but the last 4 challenges have been really gym or physical therapy based, which means traveling to exercise. I'm an ASSASSIN. a MERMAID VIKING NINJA ASSASSIN (no really I think that's my race/class). I need to be able to do stuff on my own, when I will, where I am. and with winter and shoveling my style is cramped, and I am chafing. I want to get my groove back this challenge. Last one was amazin
  7. "It can only be called fate... That here, I would again gather the three with the crests... That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder. That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down... The power of the gods... The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted!" — Ganondorf Hello again, lazy monks. I, The Shogun, am your new fitness overlord for this week. I have but one simple goal. To transform your flabby wimey body into a more efficient machine of doom. You will now thank me for se
  8. Sixth Challenge [ September 15th – October 26th ] In the land of the dritch Background story Cuckoo, cuckoo. A bird's call is waking me from my slumber. I'm surrounded by trees, some are violet, a few magenta but most are plain purple. Yawning I get up and look around, a strange feeling in my heart.... It takes a few moments, but then I realize what's wrong. I have no idea, where I am and even less how I got there. “Are you lost?â€, said a voice from the branch above me. A feline creature is hanging from there and looks at me with his inverted face. “Who are you?â€,
  9. Hello all! I am doing P90X3's "challenge" workout tomorrow for the first time, which is basically 30 minutes of alternating pull ups and push ups. I can't do any unassisted pull ups. I have an assist band, but can only get about 3/4 of the way up, and then maybe 1/2 way after that. Do you guys think it would be better to use a chair or to do their modifier (an assist band looped over the bar)? With the chair, I feel like I use my legs too much, but the motion is closer to what I'll be doing eventually. Similarly, I can do 1-2 regular push-ups, but for this exercise I think I should do a hig
  10. So I'm looking at tweaking the PLP60 to something I can actually do! I don't have upper body strength worth nothin', so I'm looking for something for the "pull" action of PLP. I'm starting with one push-up, one lunge (each leg) and one pull action, but I can't do an actual pull-up. I'm thinking inverted rows, but I don't have a bar and I'm gonna look around for a playground to creep on for the bars set. Do you have any suggestions for an alternative pull action? Thanks!
  11. Captain America’s push-up challenge: Monday-Do as many push-ups as I physically can while keeping good form (n) Wednesday- do 3 sets of (n/3)+1 push-ups Friday- Do 1 set of five of each push-up: Feet elevated, regular, diamond (upped to 7, 10, etc., as needed), et. al Goal: 50 push-ups in a row Reward: +3 STR, +3 STA Technical mess: I receive 1 point for both attributes every two weeks I successfully complete all three days. As for divisibility, 19/3 will count for 6, while 20/3 will count for 7. Mini-quest, the prequel: Is your overall quest achievable (over a short or long period o
  12. I like push ups. I haven't been doing a whole bunch of them lately. I will do a bunch of them. - I want to start with knee push ups and and inclined ones, and work my way to do being able to do a set of 8-ish again. - I hoep to do stuf at least 3 times/week, maybe more. - I will report my activities on here. Yessss. extra: bathroom push ups. kitchen push ups. bed push ups. I'll get creative.
  13. Hi all! Can't believe it's a new challenge already. Just came back from my holidays and now trying to get back into my routine. Difficult, it is. I'm already late for this challenge so no theme this time. Although I'm still slaying the White Walkers in my head. Before: This is my third NF challenge and I'm switching to the Warriors guild as strength training is all I can think about. Last time I was with Rangers and completely ignored my endurance goal so thought I might actually belong here I started kettlebells in June and barbell training in August. By the end of the last challenge
  14. So I think I posted my new Challenge topic in the last Challenge page. Therefore, here it is again! Hey all! The last challenge was my first ever, and I think it went pretty well. Nonetheless, it was a crazy time and I wasn't able to keep close track of my goals for about half of it. Hopefully I'll do this one better! That said, here's my goals for this round - I'm going to try for very quantifiable but challenging milestones: Toes to the Road Several years back, I tried getting seriously into running, only to discover that undiagosed flat feet, of all things, had caused damage to
  15. This is my first foray into the ways of the ranger. (Stranger Ranger!) Having started off adventuring, I soon discovered that I truly was a master at none, and so began my life as a jack of all trades. That is why I have taken up the platypus as a symbol/mascot for this challenge. One, because we're both aussies! Two, they are fantastically diverse bits of everything creatures. Perfect for a bits of everything me. Speaking of which, I think diversity is healthy, and anything that gets put in front of me as a challenge is fair game. My challenges - personal, professional and otherwise have all
