After a very stressful (AND SUCCESSFUL - HELL YEAH THIS ASSASSIN IS GOING TO LAW SCHOOL) last challenge, I'm going to try to keep this one simple and relatively easy to follow. Here it goes: 8 sessions of Krav Maga (2/8) 10 Cardio Sessions (11/10) 8 Body Weight/Weight Lifting Sessions (7/8) 25 Handstand Sessions (4/25) 25 Meals made at home (22/25) 30 Meditation Sessions (15/30) 25 Flexibility Sessions (6/25) Go through closet and donate clothes (0/1) Start packing to move (0/1)
Soooo...I'm stoked. I read (half, oops) of Steve's book and I decided to do something that's WAY out of my comfort zone in honor of my 29th birthday, which is just a couple of weeks away. *phew* Four of my close friends are joining me on this crazy adventure and I couldn't be more excited. I'm stupid crazy afraid of heights, but I am in love with the idea of being able to fly. It would be my #1 choice of super powers, hands down. Has anyone else gone, and what did you think? Do you have any knowledge to share? Geez I hope I don't pass out on the way down, haha, I'm paying for a picture/video package.
DinoBytes here once again for a fourth challenge. I may have taken a hiatus from posting results to the community for a few months, but I have not at all reduced my activity level. Just for an all around update on my progress; I have successfully attained a press to handstand (working on making it a straight arm press right now it is bent arms only), I have developed a silks routine for performances which I would like to improve upon, I have taken many leaps and bounds in learning to perform in the Roue Cyr wheel (I will make a post about my personal growth, difficulties and other technical aspects and frustrations explained in an easily understood format later) My flexibility has improved tremendously (not necesarily immediately apparent to an observer, however I have pushed past many obstacles with this flexibility growth) I will be posting photos and videos for your viewing pleasure and to provide visual for all of these boastful claims as well (have no fear) I hope to update my page consistantly at the very least weekly, however there will always be life to get in the way... the best way to be encouraging to me is to simply post a little check up blurb should I be late in posting for a week. Also, ASK ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU HAVE!!! I am a true introvert at heart but I love to push my limitations and I am in no way reserved about my love of circus so you can actually HELP me by expressing your curiosity about all the crazy apparatus and things I do! (what a great way to fulfill both objectives) this also will help me be more clear to begin with because all these terms and phrases have become so familiar I sometimes forget what "normal people" understand . Here is my challenge summary and grading criteria! goal 1: perfecting Silks routine: Practicing routine and expecially smooth flow and transitions during each practice (thrice per week unless performing) A = complete full set of tricks 3x per week B = 2x per week C = 1x per week F = < 1x per week goal 2: Purchasing all paleo fuel. But free food should never be denied. Especially home cooked/baked A = 7x a week B = 6x a week C = 5x a week D = 4x a week F = 3x a week goal 3: spinning in Cyr, slacklining, and hand balancing practice A = all three elements recieved some attention/practice B = two elements were practiced C = one element was practiced F = none at all Life goal: Become an AFF 'A' licenced skydiver by completing all skydives at or above the safety and control standards of the airfield. A = 1 jump/element passed per week B = attempted C = no practice/jumps due to cancellation F = no practice or jumps my starting stats: age: 21 height: 5'3" weight: 138 Feb 16th body fat percentage: 19.64% Feb 17th (likely to be inaccurate) waistline: 79-83cm Feb 17th (this is flexed-relaxed measurements) (these will be updated later this week) I am so excited about this challenge already! take this journey with me and be inspired!
