  1. Hello all. The big New Year challenge. I will be glad when 2020 is over, i am sure most of you will be too! Been the worst year of my life, not only due to COVID, but lost work (i am an artist) and my dad passed away suddenly. I am hoping 2021 can be better, even slightly. My goals for this challenge then. ACTION: I will be starting a major piece of work - ( https://www.fromheretothereproject.co.uk if anyone is interested! ) I am aiming for around 4 miles per day. Which is a MASSIVE step-up from where i am now... i barely move at
  2. Wowie wow wow last challenge of the year AND my 50th - yike I’ve been here for a hot minute, huh? This challenge when completed, will be number 50 for me. And that’s just the ones I’ve successfully finished, not counting the pile of half-assed incomplete challenges where I’ve fallen into a void hole or something. LEVEL 50 IS PRETTY BIG! As always I’m so grateful for this community - for all of YOU - for always being here and being so supportive. Nerd Fitness has really seen me shoulder some of the hardest times of my life and somehow come out screaming on

    B.R.U.T.A.L. Bold.Rangers.United.Together.Attempt.Lifting Seems like there are quite a few Rangers this challenge which are getting back to (or are continuing) a lifting routine. That's why me and @jonfirestar thought it would be fun to bring us all together in one thread so we can thrive off of each other, in a friendly competition kinda way. Now i'm not quite sure how we are going to make this work, but a thing that popped into my mind right now is: Weight --> Reps --> RPE --> E1RM --> Wilks points, per lift That way we can update with our l
  5. Last challenge–while the Empress and I were strategizing our path to world domination over tea and crumpets– we decided that I needed to focus on some very specific things to be my truest self in 2019. Definition: (1) (adjective) ruthless in competition; ( 2) (adjective) violently agitated and turbulent; (3) (adjective) marked by extreme and violent energy; (4) (adjective) marked by extreme intensity of emotions or convictions; inclined to react violently; fervid; "FIERCE" is the acronym designed to support this quest,
  6. Shadowlion haS TEA and CruMpetS with the Empress Yes, it is another Shadowlion ACRONYM Challenge… Tarot challenge... and a Fire Fit challenge... with Truck Porn, Tai Chi, Tuxedo Cats, a little alliteration, and all lot of other stuff I threw into my tags As per usual, I am a little bit late getting my challenge together. It was a bit of a hectic zero week that included much craziness at work, stitches to my left index finger, and a cold. Typing is still a bit slow, so in lieu of a lot of words, so I will leave you with several pictures that I wi
  7. After too many challenges away, I'm back. It's been a long, strange trip which has, hopefully, made me a wiser shadow lion... I am building my challenge out of several other small challenges, sort of like challenge "lego bricks." Tiny Habits First, I am using the the five day "Tiny Habits' challenge starting tomorrow to kick things off. I expect to roll these over and build on them as I progress through the four weeks of this challenge. They are tiny, and that's the point. If you aren't already familiar with the concept, you can read more about the theory and metho
  8. 12 Week Hypertrophy Quest Quest Goals: 1) Increase Muscle Mass 2) Decrease BF% 3) Increase Strength In All Lifts Overview/Details Each working set should be performed to near failure with 12 being the most reps you should perform and 6 being the lowest. This workout utilizes supersets.Take a 1 minute break between each superset. Supersets are grouped by letter before them. See Quest Objectives for context. Increase weight on each set by at least 5lbs. Increase weight from week to week as well. By the end of the 12 weeks, you should be 10lbs+ stronger in many
  9. Hi guys, here's a programming question for those of you mixing running with lifting (I guess, rangers mostly). My primary interest is distance running, but I also want to have a stronger upper body. I'm struggling to figure out my weekly schedule, esp. when it comes to legwork. I've read on Strength Running that legwork is necessary for injury prevention, and for more speed and power, but my quads and hamstrings are terribly sore after all those weighted squats and lunges. I read that's the reason why it's better to do the legwork after running instead of before. But should it be d
  10. I'm improving... Only about a week and a half late this challenge. I had an elaborate, old style Shadowlion challenge nearly ready to post at the end of the zero week, then realized that it just didn't fit the current reality. The work crazy hit and, well, here we are. This challenge is focused on continuing what was working from the last one, and adding just a little bit more. I will also do some theming, as I have time. That should help fill in some of the gaps in my challenge history over the past few months, as a way to gain some perspective for myself and in the hope that th
  11. Keeping it very simple. From March 3 - 11, I will lay the groundwork for the next challenge by: Daily - Track all food intake in a food diary to use in setting next challenge's food goal Daily - Take a walk, preferably for at least 15 minutes. May be combined with #3, if necessary, to defuse excuses, rationalizations, or other extraneous, self-defeating B.S. Daily - Spend at least 15 minutes daily outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. (Or whatever weather... It's Phoenix, Arizona, after all.) May be combined with #2, same reasoning as above. Complete three or mo
  12. BackStory: Hello, again my fellow Rangers! I've not been around at all this year despite multiple failed attempts. Truthfully this has been one of the most trying times in my life I have ever experienced. Within this past year, I've moved to a different city, put final preparations on my associate's degree, and had the most severe family problems. To top things off, I've been in a terrible haze of depression these last six months that I am only now starting to come out of. Since finally regaining a moment of clarity this month, I realized that depression had been my main foe all along whe
  13. Shamelessly stolen from [mention=53735]jonfirestar[/mention]: The hole is the grind is the challenge is the goals. Think about how insulted you are when someone (probably someone with a very long beard and a hunch back) tells you you lack discipline! The truth hurts, doesn't it. What a weak minded soul, to lack discipline. What kind of warrior (or hole-digger, for that matter) can you be? Well, excuse my French, but EFF THAT. I'm tired of being soft, physically and mentally. I'm tired of not doing what I say I'm going to do. Enough is enough. Let the grind begin. GO
  14. Hey y'all! I'm back after (another) hiatus. The short story: I had a year-long internship that was pretty rough in a lot of ways (you can read the sordid story of how I used my challenge back in January to help survive a bad several months' worth of depression), and went until I returned to my grad program this past August. I took a shot at getting another challenge going after that, but I didn't really have the mental or emotional steam to do another once my life had started to get more normal again. August, I made it back to school. I'd been exercising a bit throughout t
  15. Hi there I’ve already posted this in a few different places but I didn’t realize I didn’t do it already for the challenge! So here you go! Swimming: - 2-3x a week, 2,000 meters - Wear fins when swimming for half Swim freestyle for 200m, get out of the pool and do 20 pushups and 20 abs of choice. Get back in the water and repeat above ten times. This totals 2000m of swimming 100-200 pushups and 200 abs of choice. This is one great workout for the arms and lungs. Hypoxic pyramid adding the PT at every 100m. Hypoxic- Swim 100m freestyle breathing every 4 strokes and b
  16. Continuing... 10/28/2017 Addition Overview Based on my goals, evolving Epic Quest, and tight time constraints, I am building a multi-challenge system, one that will most likely span the better part of a year, while still maintaining a basic challenge during this construction phase. I just don’t have time to sit down and master plan like I used to. That’s actually been the reality for more than a year, but I kept trying to do things the old way and failing. Silly Shadowlion… New situation; new constraints. New constraints; new methods. “Ad
  17. So, I went over to the Mini and realized that the challenge was already underway. Somehow, I thought the challenge started this coming Saturday... I've continued my same exercise program from the last challenge and will continue it while I get a new challenge together. I have some other goals, too, and an update which may shed some light on how I managed to lose a week somewhere. I feel like an absent-minded professor who got caught in a time warp!
  18. Don’t call it a comeback~ ( Hey Noctis took like 10 years ok, I’ve only been dormant for a few months. ) NERD FRIENDOS!!! Hello, it is me, your caps lock hyperbole Ranger, coming back from a short hiatus of Doing the Thing on my own to continue Doing the Thing here, with you, better, harder, faster. It’s good to be home. <3 ANYWAYS in true Shaar fashion my quests are quite customized to my current Obsession du Jour - HEH you thought it was gonna be FFXIV, right? Or maybe Persona 5?? Aaactually I had this challenge written up for
  19. PRELUDE: Though the storm around me continues to rage, there is some peace to be found in its eye. I’ve looked into the very heart of the Dark itself, but I haven’t emerged unscathed. Like the ancient battlefields of our ancestors fought across the cosmos, I gain ground at times only to lose it hours or days later. The Rurik of days past would never have acknowledged let alone outright admitted to the weaknesses in my character but the scars which were once only inside seem to find their way to the surface in such a way that few escape notice. Maybe I sound melodramatic – and perhap
  20. Hello everyone! My name is Drew and I signed up for NerdFitness a LONG time ago, but failed to get any accountability to go with it, so it totally fell by the wayside. Well, now my brother has signed up, and is going through the Academy, so I'm respawning as he starts out. We're both teachers, so as the new school year looms, we have the opportunity to establish healthy habits and schedules this time around. It will be my fifteenth year teaching, which is kind of hard to believe, but the great thing about teaching is that the structure of the year builds in a forced respawn in terms of your te
  21. Last month was a month of doing stuff. This month is the same. Some of the goals have changed, but the overall goal remains - to do all of the things in true Ranger style. Should I exceed any of my goals each week, I will be putting £5 into a savings jar per goal exceeded. At the end of the month, I'll use the money to treat myself to something on my Amazon Wish List. Join with me as I sail the 4 Cs with regular stops along the Exercise Islands. Goals: 1. Crochet. Last month my goal was to crochet 3 squares OR sew one row onto the blanket I'm making my

    Muir Does Stuff

    Last month I did a workout challenge where I did one fitness thing per day. Even though I was ill for most of the month, I still managed to do it all. Yay! This month though, I'm going to take it fairly easy. Right now we don't have much room due to the kitchen being remodelled, which means there's pretty much no space for me to do any workouts. I can't even roll out my yoga mat completely, it's that bad. Goal 1: Try to keep with my version of the NFA eating plan. Drink only water or herbal tea from noon to 6pm every day. Eat z
  23. January is typically seen as a month of new beginnings. For me, it's going to be a month of going back to the basics and easing back into "regular" life after a month of feasting and eating all of the things. Over the course of December, I gained ~3 kgs, 2" around my waist, and 1" around my chest. This extra weight must be lost. This month I'm doing another fitness challenge. This one is only going to last the month though. While the Push Up and Pull Up challenges had some great results, 10 weeks was a bit too long for my tastes. The New Year Fitness Challenge starts off slow with
  24. I'm sticking with smaller and simpler, while still keeping my sights on the big goals. The Race to Reveal the Red Scorpion 1. Strength - Bodyweight or other strength training (With amounts and types TBD during Zero Week, then posted here) A - 3x/week B - 2x/week C - 1x/week F - 0x/week 2.
