  1. So i have just completed my first ever OCR. My training leading up to the event, plus post-race analysis, is detailed in my Barbarian Challenge training log. This log will pick up where that race ended. i do hope to do more of these events in the future, plus a smattering of 5 and 10ks, some powerlifting meets, some shooting comps, and whatever other epic adventures i may come across. So, here we go!
  2. Yeeeeeeeeeep, it's about that time to kick off the Summer months with some fun and excitement. Upon special request from a few close friends, I will be doing a Mad Sweeney themed challenge over the next 4-weeks. Who is Mad Sweeney, you ask? Well he's a big ass Leprechaun who likes to brawl and perform coin tricks. Easily one of my favorite characters in the STARZ show, American Gods, based off the novel written by Neil Gaiman. If you really want to nerd out and find out more about Mad Sweeney, then you can view his complete history via THIS link. I've been on a roll lately with fit
  3. My last challenge went pretty well. And more overall goal of running faster than before was achieved. However, I want more. I want to run faster, yes. But, I've lost enough weight that I can actually start to envision my weight under 200 pounds. It's been 18 years since that happened. I probably won't make it this challenge (currently at 208), but I want to take a bite out of what's left. To do that, I'm going to recycle most of my goals and try out a different one on the nutrition front since that's the one part of the last challenge that needed lots of improvement. If it's working, why chang
  4. Well I am back for another 4WC(5WC)!! I decided to have a little fun with the theme and go with Sonic this time Each goal will earn me rings to give me power to fight Doctor Eggman. So here's the goals: STRENGTH:X30 a week Sonic has to be strong in order to power through all of Dr. Robotnik's robots! (Need at least 100 rings to pass) Week 1: Week 2: WEEK 3: WEEK 4: SPEED: X12 a week What Sonic challenge would be complete without sprinting?! I will be doing sprinting drill 6 ti
  5. Hey all! Really excited to have finished my recruit challenge and officially join the ranks Main goal: Lose 30 pounds. I have many main goals, though overall I'd like to lose the weight I gained from last challenge and then some. Quest 1: Bring my armor and hp to high levels. Take little beatings from attackers. (+3 CON) To achieve this, I'll replace junk food with healthier snacks. I bombed this last challenge as it was set for breakfast/dinner. I need to start smaller and just eat healthy snacks through the day. I'll keep up with good meal but I'll be focusing on snacks this challenge
  6. This will be my seventh challenge and in honor of that I'm looking back over my past six and pulling inspiration from them. Its a time traveling theme ... just go with it My six previous challenge have an interesting theme when you look them over. I'll leave the list under the . The theme is fairly simple ... I run, I bike, I do bootcamp/TRX, I try to limit booze, I do photography. This MIGHT have to do with my Scout philosophy. I mean really I keep doing the same ole same ole and expect to get different results ... I might be insane Well not really ... when I was marathon
  7. It has been a bit since I've been on NF. But I'm back in for the challenge! I will be dedicating this 6 week challenge to rounding out my fitness regimen to include areas that need additional work and practice. Currently I coach and train parkour 2-3 days a week. I also have been making an effort to train aerial rope basics 2 days a week. This free form training keeps me active and learning new things. Yet I want to see improvement in my flexibility and endurance, which are areas that my current activities do not address. To do so, I will follow this regiment for the 1st 3 weeks: Daily ac
  8. Challenge Goals: Nutrition- Eat Clean! I'm going for 42 days of clean eating. What does clean eating mean to me? Unlimited fruits and veggies, nuts, healthy fats, and full fat dairy in moderation. Organic or grass-fed meat when possible. That's the basics, obviously there's more to it than that. I've been doing really well so far, so it's not a drastic change but a continuation of what I'm currently doing. Fitness- Sprint! I'm going to 24 sprint sessions, which is an average of 4 per week. I also do one "long" run per week. Fitness- Bodyweight workouts! I'm
  9. Vengefulpear's Asgard Challenge Hello again! Ready for another challenge? I am! So you may remember the last mini-challenges we all rebuilt the Bifrost (well done by the way!) but I figured while all you Assassins go back to Midgard and move on with some training I'll stay up here in Asgard and recuperate with Odin and train with Thor! Main Quest: Recover So my shoulder still isn't fully recovered. And honestly, it's getting quite frustrating. I have a doctor's appointment later (update to follow) so hopefully the doctor will be more useful than the nurse who just shrugged and said
  10. I have a training drill where I need to switch directions very quickly at random intervals over a 3 minute time span. Works very well with a work out partner willing to clap randomly for you, but not quite as easy to perform solo. Does anyone know of tracks, online generators, or iOS apps that could help me with this? Thanks in advance
  11. I was out for the last challenge but I'm back to be a bad ass. I did however set a few small goals I achieved, I started the 30day hard hat and have only missed 3 days due to my wife having eye and a dental appointment screwing my schedule. I watched 'Jiro dreams of sushi' and really loved the masters dedication to his passion. So I'm going to take a few ideas and perspectives from the 3 star chef and his attitudes to achieving success. 'Once you decide on your occupation... you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You
  12. I decided against RPG for now because I'd like to focus purely on getting everything out of this challenge. I didn't do so well on my last challenge, so I need to get twice as much out of it this time around. I'm pumped up and just as excited about this one as I was on my first one. My last challenge involved freedom and enjoying life, but I realized that I don't work well in that type of environment. I can have structure (I actually LOVE structure) and still enjoy life. So this will be a hardworking, no excuses challenge for me. I will walk away from this challenge harder, better, faster an

    The Primal Scroll

    http://youtu.be/2H3KhucexJE Anybody ever play Chrono Trigger? Just wondering. The last challenge went pretty well, but it also saw me get really humbled in terms of what I could do and what I could commit. I rediscovered the Primal Blueprint, and saw how I could use it to get really intense and really focused on my workouts, and make them short and effective, whilst at the same time freeing myself up to follow the diet properly and re-engage in martial arts. In the intervening period between the last challenge and this one, I have finally, finally gotten the WITS people to move forward o
  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
  16. The Six Week Six Pack Challenge I started a battle log, poorly kept already although it's been doing its job of haunting me and reminding me to push through on most days. I'll be using this challenge to motivate myself to get as close as physically (and healthily) possible to a six-pack by the end of the 6 weeks. I'm still working out who my PvP will be, but that should help as well. BACKSTORY Been on a plateau hovering between 165-170lbs for several months. Last year I broke into the 150's at a glorious 159 last year for the first time in my adult life, but then fell off the bandwa
  17. Hello to all at NerdFitness, my first reaction to finding this site is; why didn't I find this site sooner?! I'm a 24yo guy from Bristol UK, frequently practicing running, swimming, climbing, cycling, strength training, sprinting, bodyweight exercise, gymnastics, and circus skills, in no particular order. And like many of you, totally addicted to video games, films, and all nerdy goodness. Currently in good to v. good shape with goals of improving further, mostly reducing BF% and increasing lean muscle mass. I want to reach my absolute peak before I'm out of my 20s and priorities can "chan
