  1. It's a NEW challenge! Gosh it goes by so fast. For this challenge, I want to maintain the new habits from the last challenge: Exercise (Fitness) No Snacking After Dinner (Nutrition) Take one hour unplugged for myself (Stress-Relief) It's time to add more to it. Add strength training to my exercise routine. Cook Ten meals No candy! Take 1 hour a day for work EXPLAIN YOURSELF, SNARKY (spoilered for wordiness.)
  2. Hola, compadres. Welcome to 2018's first installment of the continuing adventures of the incredible shrinking middle-aged man. Last year I rode the yo-yo a bit, and I don't aim to repeat those mistakes this year. Additionally, I ended 2017 with a discovery about my coronary health that requires a pretty fair shake-up of my workout grind, which if I'm being totally honest had gotten stale and unproductive. A shake-up, being just what the doctor ordered, may also be just what I need to break out of my rut. And while we're shaking it's also a good time to mix up what I've been d
  3. Today was bench and deadlifts day. I am doing 5/3/1 and this was the last workout after my reset so the weights are really low, also they are in kg bench 5's 45/52/5/60, then 5x5 @45 ss with goblet squats and pull ups 5x5 deads 5's 60/67.5/75 using a mixed grip, then 5x5 at 60 using fat gripz and a double overhand grip. ss with ab rollouts 5x5 then I took a walk.
  4. So, I have been a member for ever. Okay, not really, but I have only started posting. So, I live in Japan, I am 43 years old, married with two kids and I lift weights, run(poorly) and do kettlebell stuff. I have recently read, and finished, Level Up Your Life and I can honestly say it was the kick in the pants for me. I want to do other things. Getting stronger is important for me but obviously not the only thing. Living my life epically and showing my kids that they too can do all the things they want are probably the most important things in my life. So a few things training wise
  5. So, clearly I took the red pill. Let's see about that rabbit hole! Alright then...the goals: 1. Stay within the weekly calorie goals until I hit maintenance. November 28 - Dec 4 - goal: 1880 daily calories Dec 5 - Dec 11 - goal 1980 daily calories Dec 12 - Dec 18 - 2080 daily calories Dec 19 - Dec 25 - 2180 daily calories (Allowable eat like a jerk day on Christmas - track but don't include in the average.) Dec 26 - Jan 1 - probably 2280 calories, although I reserve the right to change any of these if maintenance happens sooner tha
  6. After getting my bases covered in the last 4-week challenge, I'm ready to get back into my routine of burning fat, increasing my muscle, and conquering any obstacles that may be in my way. This will be the foundations I will lay out for the next few months, from which I will build better habits, and the starting off point for getting stronger. For those of you who don't know, My name is Bob, and I am a Barbarian To me, a barbarian isn't about being a shirtless guy, with an ax and an anger problem. No, there are several tenets to being a barbarian, and I h
  7. So after failing the last couple of questing months, I've decided it's time to get back to basics. To not only work hard, but work smart, and adapt to my daily life, rather than make a plan that I know won't work. For those of you who don't know, My name is Bob, and I am a Barbarian To me, a barbarian isn't about being a shirtless guy, with an ax and an anger problem. No, there are several tenets to being a barbarian, and I have created quests for each one. I feel these tenants can be applied to any path, though I prefer the path of the assassin. I will earn my p
  8. This challenge is in part a continuation of my last challenge. I started the Sandbag Fitness Lean & Strong program, but realized after about 2 weeks that it didn't fit my criteria for a fitness program. I wanted to try it because it was built for sandbags and was sufficiently different from other programs I'd tried in the past, but the bottom line was all the increased lifting volume required the workouts to last too long. (I also don't love the 5x5 setup.) I started looking back at all the other programs I've tried over the last 3 years to see what worked and what didn't and why I quit
  9. I'll be following this 10 week program this summer, starting on June 1. Since I'll be out of town during the last week of this challenge, I will go ahead and start a week early. Goal 1 - Get Leaner: Lose 2" from my midsection Did my pre-challenge-weigh-in and measurements last night (5/31) and my wife measured my midsection at 36". I'd ideally like to get down to 32" or less, but I'm just going to shoot for losing 2" during the next six weeks. I managed to accomplish this before using a combination of calorie restriction and low impact cardio. I plan to eat at maintenance calories for
  10. I, the Doc o' the Poo, have broken into 400+ territory on my deadlift. I just went crazy nutso, slapped 405 on the bar, told myself I could, and did. A good feeling after a crappy week of working out. Stay frosty.
  11. Introduction: Hi - I’m BadassityInMotion. This is my first challenge officially on the board. I am a 33 years old female Amazonian who is training for Rangerhood draped in Druid robes. After an amazing, successful, whirlwind of a year, it’s time to take a breath and get my body back to peak performance so I can enjoy more things, more often, with more people and without breaking a sweat. I’ve decided to make 2015 just as badass as 2014 but even more deliciously sustainable. I am doing that by changing my work schedule around (less travel), hacking my body with supplements & hi
  12. Hi everybody. BRHemp here. Going to start my first challenge on the 13th. I am a federal law enforcement officer and a CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certified instructor. I also hold certs in CF Olympic Lifting, CF Gymnastics, CF Strong Man, CF Kids and am certified with Kettlebell concepts as an instructor. This is why I classify myself as a Ranger My goal for the 6 week challenge is to eat better, lose 5-8 pounds and be a better man and father. My fiance and I will be seeing a sports nutritionist this week and hopefully she can get us on a better eating lifestyle. When I started bac
  13. Quite a straightforward challenge for me this time round, and something of a natural follow on from my last challenge where I fell short of my goals for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. Starting Stats: As of 10 April 2014. Bodyweight: 88.7kg Bodyfat %: ??% Snatch: 82kg Clean & Jerk: 100kg Clean: 110kg Back Squat: 182kg Front Squat: 140kg Deadlift: 200kg Bench: 95kg Also worth pointing out that I'm on a calorie deficit of about 250-300 day as I cut down to the 85kg weight class. I ran the whole of the last challenge on a ~500 calorie deficit as the muscle I have put on since the sta
  14. Hi, I know I am late for the challenge but I would like to start anyway. I am a 32 year old woman and will be 33 on Tuesday and I thought my birthday would be a good starting point for my fist challenge. I live on planet metric, but I will try to calculate my stats for you: I am 5' 7" tall and I weigh 187 lbs (1,70m/85kg). I did the BBWW twice already and I can do it three times but I need a 20sec break before the third round. And it kills me completely. I do assisted pull ups instead of the dumbbell rows because I would really like to be able to do one real pull up. Or two. Which would make m
  15. What's up rebels? I'm a 20 something who had recently lost a ton of weight doing CARDIO CARDIO CARDIO and eating BLAND BORING FOOD. Okay so that wasn't really sustainable and I gained a little back. Now I'm ready to get STRONG and also improve my running endurance by eating the right foods to keep me going and actually are tasty. I love running and want to do an ultra one day. I am a bike commuter for most of the year. Okay and my high school reunion is coming up in July and even if I can't go because of work I still have a GOAL of dropping back down to the size 12 I was back in high school
  16. I'm starting a little late in the 6 weeks challenge, but only by a week. Wasn't planning on doing a challenge, but since I'm stuck at work, and don't have access to the chat because the network is blocking it, I figured why not?? Plus, I'm an aspiring warrior, and to get into that guild, I need to get this challenge knocked out. Will give me two places to update my progress. Here, and my daily battle log. I guess the battle log will be nice for general tracking of my over all progress, with this being much more goal oriented. Current Main Quests: I'm wanting to go to the TTTT in Januar
  17. Challenge 2.0 - I started strength training about 3 months ago now and have been doing stronglifts 5x5. LOVE LIFTING HEAVY - totally addicted!!! The last 6 week challenge saw me get stronger, join a new strength & conditioning gym with a coach, and spectate at a couple of powerlifting comps. This will be my first challenge with the warriors and i want to LIFT ALL THE THINGS, and EAT ALL THE THINGS. I think I will fit in just fine There is a local "Pretty and Powerful" girls only powerlifting comp in mid-December this year. I want to train with the intention of competing in this - and wi
  18. Main Goal : Get Stronk. I mean like BAMF Minotaur stronk. Why? Did you ever see a scrawny minotaur? I never did. They're the most bad ass mythical hybrid creature in existance. Period. If I look back at a "real" reason as to why I want to get stronger/bigger is that I've finally reached my Ultimate goal weight this weekend at 175 lbs (I actually went down to 173.8 one morning so 68.2 pounds lost). But with all that fat shed, I'd like to actually be stronger and bigger, so this challenge and possibly the next one, is all about that. Pictures will be taken as per my usual, each two weeks. Hea
  19. Greetings, fellow challengers and others. I am Sythez (intro) and I've come to become the Spartan badass I was meant to be! Or the superhero, hunter, warrior, secret agent... I'm not that picky on the badass, more just the becoming of one. Main Quest: I will healthily lose 10 pounds over the next 6 weeks, to a weight of 210 lbs or lower. 1. I will remain within a caloric goal of 1460 net calories per day. (I do eat mostly paleo) 2. I will alternate between running and doing the beginners bodyweight workout every day, unless I have some other major physical activity (ex. Martial
  20. How's it going people? Im an 18 (150 pound) year old high school senior, who is ready to change his life. For the past few months, i've been going through the same routine: Get up, go to school, come home. get on the computer, go to sleep. The funny thing is, that I have been doing weghttraining since last month, but I haven't been puting max effort, in both the gym and my diet. I could push for one last rep, but I never do, or I could eat another meal, but I say it doesn't matter. Since i've been skinny all my life, I always make excuses like, "Oh I just have bad genetics" or "I'm just not ma
  21. Hello :3 You can call me Jen, I'm 20, and I'm working toward a healthier body and soul through yoga and cardio! I'm short (5'2) and stocky and half my battle will be trying to love and accept my body. I did gymnastics for 10 years so I have quite the foundation. I'm now a full time student at a university. I'm editing my goals now because I have a different schedule. I'm 126 and I'd like to lose 5 pounds. Goals: Run 3 times a week. This is definitely attainable. 3 = A, 2= C, 1= D. Do Yoga 2 times a week at the gym. (Also, if you don't make it to the gym, do it at home) 3=A, 1= B, 0= D.
  22. Hey Rebels, My name is Manar and I live in Chi-town( or as many of you possibly know as Chicago). I am now a 26 year old, 225 lbs man but here is the catch: one year ago, I weighed 325 lbs!! I set myself a big goal by wanting to lose 100lbs in the first year. I thought it was impossible at first, but I kept having faith and believing in myself, and now I did it all on my own. I always wanted to be healthier and stronger and finally I decided at 25 years old that I have reached rock bottom and I wanted to change my life to the better. I figured since everything else in my life is messed up an
