  1. Hey guys, I'm pretty new, and I've got what's probably a typical question for new folk: What is the safest (and quickest) way to determine a 1rm, 5rm, or 10rm on given exercises? Now I realize the simplest method is pick up progressively heavier things until I can't with proper form, but is this the best way to do it or should I treat it more like a progression? How often do I test this while moving up to my actual max? Should I test this for different lifts on different days (not going to test OHP and BP on same day, but mixing legs with presses to test, etc.)? I am not new to training, or even to training with weights, I've just been using a set of adjustable dumbbells at home, and I am no longer being challenged appropriately (3x10 shoulder presses and lunges @ 52# each is the only thing I'm still challenged by), and I know I need to hit the gym proper. I've determined that I want to use the StrongLifts program for a while, but aside from the OHP, I don't know my maxes, and even then I don't know my 5 rep max for shoulder press. Help here is greatly appreciated. This kinda moves me to my second big question: looking at StrongLifts, I would only deadlift 3 sets every 2 weeks. Is this going to be enough, or should I increase it to 3 sets a workout and 9 every 2 weeks? Thanks a ton for your help friends
  2. Quest 1 - RUN Plotting to do a half in the fall and now I need to get that to happen! A - 12 runs B - 11-9 runs F - less than 9 runs Quest 2 - POWER THROUGH! Just finished my first month of doing Strong Lifts ... I'm gonna keep pushing it! A - 12 SL workouts B - 11-9 SL Workouts F - less than 9 Life Quest - SUIT UP I've been putting off getting clothes that fit my flabbier form ... time to dress well rather than Buy 2 pieces of new clothing!
  3. *Disclaimer: No elephants will be eaten or hurt in any way during this challenge. So how DOES one eat an elephant? LogiKoo knows it's one bite at a time. However, IllogiKoo has really been struggling lately with the whole "one thing at a time" mentality. I have good intentions, but I look at everything on my plate and I become paralyzed. Consequently, nothing is "eaten" and more things are added each day. This challenge will be focused on teaching myself to just get started on that one thing (while continuing the good habits I stumbled toward in the last challenge). Goals: 1. The Elephant in the Room- The elephant in the room is actually THE room, or really the house. It's still a wreck. I need to do something about it because it's clear no one else is going to. My methods last challenge were not a success--mostly because I just didn't do it. This time I will pick something from my list, set a timer for 15 minutes, work on that thing for 15 minutes. I must do this a minimum of 4 times per day. I will get a pass from this if we go out of town during Spring Break (plans are not final yet) or on my son's soccer tournament weekend when I know we will not be home much on that Saturday and Sunday. 2. Learning Russian - Last challenge I really started my effort toward learning Russian. This time I will: Continue doing my Duolingo practice every day. Kick it up a notch by seeking Russian Lessons twice per week that will help me understand some part of the language that Duolingo isn't necessarily teaching me. I plan to use the interwebs for this. A short search has shown me many options for said lessons. 3. Seeking the Stronks Elephants are strong and so am I, but I've got lots of work to do. This time I will: Continue Strong Lifts 3x per week - building consistency and hoping to smash past my previous working weights by the end of challenge. Require a 4th day of exercise each week. Anything counts, really, as long as it's at least 20 minutes. 4. One Meal at a Time I have been falling into the meal skipping habit again. This does me no good when it comes to fueling my lifting. I will be aiming to get back to my 3 healthy meals per day pattern for this challenge. Okay, time to take the first bite.
  4. Well, life has been interesting. Got into a good grove working out with a coworker, start playing hockey in a local beer league, started playing with software defined radio, wrenching on a beater suburban, lots of goodness. Then I slowed down on working out with my co-workers, had excuses not to play hockey (Sunday night), and put on more weight than I needed. Oh, and let my housekeeping go to entropy. Goals and metrics are easy. Every day - one action against entropy to clean/improve the house. Sunday night - hockey - starting tonight. Strong lifts - squat, press deadlift, and squat, bench, power clean - alternate and lift twice a week. Walk the dog - if you don't patrol it you don't own it, and I plan to take to walk twice a day in the neighborhood and the open space near my house. Bonus points - maintain my beer fast for February. I am fasting from beer, not living on beer. Bonus points - get out of February at under 200 lbs. Bonus points - 1 March start the mustache. Robin Olds. Okay, this is a lame post, I must do better with funny pictures, that is my ultimate challenge this 4 week go. - Murphy's Roommate
  5. I will edit this with more details, but I wanted to get this out here now before the challenge gets too far along. I liked some stuff that happened during the last challenge and I learned a lot more things about me and what makes me tick. So, my challenge won't be much different from an underlying plan, but the goals will be structured a little different as a way to keep me motivated. Run 40 miles - I know that number doesn't look like a whole lot, but as the temperatures dip I'm always less motivated to go outside and run. But, that number does require that I pretty much run 3x a week since it's rare that I run more than 4 miles at a time. 10 lifting sessions - I managed 8 last challenge, so I'm upping the ante to get to 10 this challenge. Gratitude journal - So, meditation helped me relax and not be so stressed about things last challenge. I'm getting better at it. But, I also want to turn that into action somehow. So, I've decided to start a gratitude journal. Each night (or at least 16 nights for the course of the challenge), I'll review how may day went focusing on the good things. Each morning, I'll write down what I'm hoping to accomplish for the day. Diet hacking - I'm not sure how I'm going to grade this one. But, I noticed my best success at not eating like an asshole came when I focused on the meal at hand. I had to set aside previous meals otherwise it was too easy to take one bad meal and let it spiral the rest of my day into lots of bad choices. Simply put, more plants, less crap, try to keep meats at the same or just a little less. It will all be based on the idea that each meal needs to be better than the previous. This will not always be so, but I will not beat myself up when it's not. Because that takes me longer to recover from than just putting it in the rearview. I do need a way to score this, but I haven't figured that out yet. That's it for now, but that's the general outline of this challenge.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm a few days late but I'm here. I worked hard last challenge on improving my time management. I made great progress, and want to continue on this idea. I plan to establish a minimum level of fitness for everyday. So if work/school/family etc get in the way and my whole day goes to hell I can always hit at least my minimum. I want a preflight checklist of sorts, that needs to have every box checked before bed. So my goals this time will all be towards that end. Lets raise up those stats 1a. walk 7.5k steps ( My minimum.) I usually beat that before I leave work, but tend to not walk as much on weekends. This my minimum and if I can't check it off at night, I will have to go for a walk. Keeping track using habit app 1b. Minimum PT I want to do a short session of calisthenics at the moment I plan to do air squats, push ups, pull ups, leg lifts, and jumping jacks. I am thinking this will be a 5-10 min thing done whenever the day permits. If I can't check the box before bed, get it done... Tracking using a habit app 1c. Wizerscises while at work, with a sprinkle of stairs Simplified this means I will do 10 air squats for each restroom break while at work. Along the same lines, I won't take elevators at work. I will be tracking these on my phone using a habit tracking app that will allow me to keep track of them as I go. 2. Eat under 2k calories + vitamins If I stick to my planned food this will be easy. Take my vitamin D and multi. I will also use the app to track this info as well 3. Stretch at work Start my work days with stretching, simple 5-10 min session. Again tracked with a habit app. Life goal: Complete one house chore each day. I have been gaining a lot of momentum lately doing things through the week, which has freed up more of my weekends for fun. I want to keep it up and do at least one thing each day. Will track using my habit tracker as well. This plan is my fail safe, sorta speak. If I can make these items a no questions asked habit, then even days when I can't do anything above and beyond I would still maintain minimum level of fitness, nutrition, and productivity that I would be happy with. Above and beyond I would like to get more serious work outs in, my lifting mainly. So that is my plan, raise up my worst days to increase my overall average sorta speak.
  7. Hey Everybody. I am currently out of town for work, its going to be a rough one. Some of you may remember that not to long ago I was working long days with only 1 day off for about 3 months. Well I had some time back to normal, and got sent off to help out a different facility. I'm in jersey, doing 16 hour days for 10 days. Ok so my gripping is done, please forgive my complaining lol. I will be home on Tuesday the 24th, and plan that to be the real start of my challenge. In the mean time I am just trying to make sure I don't loose the marbles I have left. (I do have a plan so I don't stray to far while on my trip) As the tittle hints to, my goals deal with the number 5, why? Because I love old Kung Fu movies, and 5 Deadly Venoms is one of my favorites, and because its as high as I can count without using 2 hands. But mostly because I will have 5 active weeks of this challenge. Goal 1 - Lose 5 lbs Method: Eat less than 13510 calories a week. That works out to 1930 a day. I plan to measure weekly, so that if I want to splurge on the weekend I can earn it during the week. I went over my dailies on the weekends last time, and I think this method will hold me accountable to make that up. I have had success using myfitness pal, I used it to calculate how much I need to eat to lose 1lb a week. I didn't input exercise, so that will be bonus towards the loss. Goal 2 - Increase lifts by 5% Method: I have been using a modified strong lifts program, I plan to stick to it. My buddy Tinkerer did over 30% last challenge, I like the idea of gaining a %! I don't think I could manage more than 5% the numbers start to get very high. Here is the white board I use to track my progress. Squat + 12lb (going to have to make that 12.5) Bench + 8.5 (10) Rows + 7 (7.5) Press + 5.75 (7.5) DL + 13.5 (15) Also for good measure I will be upping my daily step goal by 5% ---> 10500 I feel these are realistic. Goal 3 - 5 sessions of cardio (yuck) My Stamina is my lowest stat for a reason.... I got a heart rate monitor, and as a step in the right direction I want to complete 5 sessions of cardio where I keep my heart rate in my target zone for > 20 mins. Life Goal - Lean video editing I have some cool hobbies, and I own a gopro, and all my videos looks like crap... I would like to learn some of the basics of video editing, cutting scenes together, music, etc. Any pointers would be a great help here guys. I have yet to even googled the subject. Its just something I have always wished I knew, so lets go learn it! or as much as possible in 5 weeks. I will post a video at the end, expect it to have guns, jeeps, and dogs in it. You know all the cool stuff. I wrote this whole thing in 2-4 min chunks, in between crane lifts so hopefully it is somewhat coherent. Thanks also to Tink for reminding me to get my challenge posted!
  8. Hi All So ive abandoned my previous battle log coz I thought its time to get serious and therefore I need a new log... So lets start with why my battle log has this strange name.... while researching stronglifts I came across the story of Milo of Croton and thought that his story was an awesome guideline for what im wanting to achieve, I mean.... "His daily diet consisted of 20lb meat, 20lb bread and 18 pints of wine" awwwweeesssoooommmme I wish I could eat like that lol... but I will eventually be doing this full paleo ( I say eventually because I am currently not in control of meals but that will change during the 12 weeks) and the main reason im basing this on him... "He started lifting and carrying a new born calf and repeating the feat daily as it grew to maturity, thus increasing his strength every day by small increments" oh but of course there is the major difference of me being a girl..... so if im gona look like a greek goddess i wana look like this and im hoping I wont be eaten alive by wolves So yeah im really focusing on getting strong and turning this fat booty into a nice round muscular booty My 12 week strong lift challenge started on the 2nd March and lets see how this goes...
  9. Yup, I did it. I officially crashed and burned. As my arbitrary post in the Respawn forum said, I finally died from the long, slow death that is the curse of all soldiers: that strange mixture of cockiness ("I'm a soldier; I do PT every morning! I'm a calorie-burning machine!") and denial ("I only eat fast food because my schedule is so crazy and the DFAC food is horrible!"). Fact 1: it is entirely possible to out-eat your workouts. Fact 2: it is entirely possible to believe Fact 1 is not applicable to you. Bonus Fact! It is also entirely possible to rationalize total lack of gym time by substituting any number of other frivolous activitiies! But enough bemoaning my demise. Time to reboot and start a NEW character!!! I'm a serial start-over-er in my games anyway; I suffer from a bit of perfectionism"noted" and a somewhat short attention span"noted", so I'm easily frustrated or bored if I make too many mistakes or step away from the game very long - or play it too long, as the case may be. That all sounds very terrible, and probably creates a lot of questions about my love of video games, but the flip side is that I love being able to learn from what I did wrong hoarding up new knowledge and making my new character even BETTER than the last one! Other serial restarters know what I'm talking about: there's nothing quite like being on your 6th character reincarnation at level 3 and having all the crap/being well on your way to having all the crap that your earlier character had (finally!) at level 21. You just feel..... smug! So this is my restart, and here are my goals (aka, "How I plan on using all this awesome experience I now have in failing to bot through all that previous sucky grinding"): 1. 5x5 Stronglifts. I never used a weightlifting program in the past, which was awesome at the time because I got to do a lot of experimenting.... but that childish method of 'run around and poke it with a stick to see what happens' would just be a waste of time at this point. I've worked out the quest progression line now, and I'll go through levels faster if I stick to the path. As noted in the previous paragraph, I'm both a perfectionist and a "- SQUIRREL!!!!!" which is why I've chosen this program. Simple enough that it's easy for me to be both anal about and to stick with: it's difficult even for me to get distracted inside of 3 exercises! 2. Calorie recording. I'm very good at counting calories. I'm very bad at trying to eat/drink within a limited number of them. But I make awesome dietary choices so long as I'm aware of them, which is why I've already begun tracking them in my phone. Example 1: Coworker brings in donuts to the office? No, thank you! I'm already wincing at the very idea of having to enter that in! Example 2: Second plate of dinner (because my husband is an amazing cook, and I am a willing and widemouthed meal participant) - extra helping of deliciously grilled (yes, you read that right) garlic bread or deliciously grilled kebabs? Hmm, let me compare here.... Yup! Kebabs it is! 3. Drink water. Duh, right? It's practically the Army's mantra - screw that bullshit, limp-dick "Army of One" slur no matter what's happening at any given point, you're 99% guaranteed to hear the phrase "Drink water!" at some point. But it's not just a reminder to hydrate (which I really need to do, seeing as I'm in the desert now); it's a way of reminding someone to "figure it out and get on with it". I have a LOT of new things going on in my life right now, and a whole bunch more on the horizon for next year that I need to start preparing for yesterday now. This means I have a looooooot of opportunity to make excuses for not focusing on goals 1 & 2, and some of them are going to be genuine reasons to skip a workout or forget to log a meal. But this 6WC is about habit building more than anything else for me - so I NEED to "drink water". Edited to add: Conquer the Caveman! Learn and practice the Caveman Squat until I convincing enough to lure in a sabertooth cat So there they are, my 3 goals + Side Quest! My hope is to log on to NF every day to update here, but I'll be happy if I just manage to keep on track with my goals on my end. I'll likely be logging my workouts on Fitocracy (linked in my sig) and my meals on my phone (because it's stupid-convenient and damn near impossible to forget). But I'll always try to make my posts entertaining, I can promise that much! And I'm a HUGE lurker of other people's threads, so don't be surprised if I have more activity around the site than here. Time to be a leaf on the wind! (Sans impalement)
  10. Hi Everybody, I came back last challenge, after a long break. I succeeded; in the last challenge, rebuilding my healthy habits that I had let decay. I started my vitamins (everyday) again. I made strength training (3 X a week) a priority. I also made sure to eat right (paleo, and in a calorie deficit.) I am very excited to participate in this challenge and keep the momentum going. Goal: 1 Eat Right​This is absolutely critical to my success. I want to get into the 1XX's for my weight this time, and eating right is 80% of my weight loss. So I signed up a food delivery program, that delivers food to me that is paleo, and portioned out for me. Each meal is between 400-600 calories. I eat one for lunch and one for dinner. I supplement that with an apple for lunch and dinner, and for desert I eat a frozen banana dipped in dark chocolate (130cal.) This keeps me in the 1600 calorie range which is great for me to lose weight. If I eat extra food, or cheat I will come here and tell on myself. TL;DR eat my delivered food, don't be dumb. Goal: 2 Strength Training This has been a really enjoyable thing for me, It gives me incredible motivation. I started doing Strong Lifts (weight lifting program) last challenge and I love seeing the weight increase as I progress. I plan to continue that and I am still doing my circuit body weight work (after my strong lifts.) My body weight work is 10 Bulgarian split squats, 10 push ups, 5 pull ups, 15 leg raises, 10 back hyperextensions, I also throw 5 dumbbell curls (35lb) in. I then rest for a min and then repeat 3 times. I plan to increase intensity as it gets easier. I can add dumbbells to the split squats, do close push ups, increase reps etc. TL;DR Pick up heavy stuff and put it down. Goal: 3 Mobility This one is important My Dex is tied for my lowest stat for a reason. I have a hard time getting a proper squat grip on a barbell, and to be honest I'm just not flexible at all. I would like to change this, I know it can help prevent injuries and help remove some pain. I will do some mobility exercises I learned from the Mobility WOD website (which has become a paysite, anyone have an alternative?) I will also do some of my own stretching and mobility exercises to focus on the areas that I think will be most beneficial. TL;DR Become more like a rubber band Life Goal: Learn New Skills So yeah, I'm very happily married. Not looking for any girls, but I love the idea of learning skills. I haven't made a list of skills, I kinda want it to flow naturally from whatever is interesting to me that week. I plan to make them something I haven't tried before, and I want something tangible I can show after. Examples would be a new dance move, with video evidence or, locking picking successfully picking a lock, something of that nature. New things are usually scary to me, so hooray for getting out of my comfort zone. TL;DR try new things and learn stuff So that's the plan, now all I have to do is follow through.
  11. Hi all, I started doing NF's Barbell Battalion back at the end of December and loved it right up until a month or two ago when I hit a serious plateau. I know I haven't been eating as well and my work schedule is fucking nuts, but seriously... I've been struggling just to maintain my working weights. I decided to find a new routine, change things up a little. I suspect part of my problem may be psychological, boredom... So I checked out Strong Lifts and figured I'd give it a shot. He mentions that women might want to add 2.5# per workout to the bench press and overhead press instead of the generally prescribed 5# due to the fact that many of us naturally will have trouble adding that much each time. I'm pretty sure this applies to me. Who's got experience with this? Did you make adjustments to the program as written? I've done the first two days of it -- one A day and one B day -- and they've gone quickly because the weights are much lower than what I have been lifting on, say, my squats and deadlift. I'm super excited at the prospect of being able to add that much weight over the course of the program!
  12. Hey warriors - a bit of an intro since this is my first time as a warrior. i've been in and out of challenges all year, never quite finding something i can stick to that i enjoy. when i first started i loved body weight, found that i hate cardio, circuits are good but lacked motivation. Not at home from 6am - 6pm so finding a time to workout is difficult, unless it's short (cardio, blergh) or is just on the weekend. Boyfriend (who i work out with) has been thinking about strength training for a while. I asked a friend of mine who is a personal trainer and competes in judo professionally for a good place to start. Enter the German Body Comp, which we've done for the last three weeks. Love it! Boyfriend then spends vast majority of the day reading up on strength training. And this brings us to Strong Lifts 5x5 A simple workout, done three times a week, relatively quick, and we enjoy strength training. Sold! And so shapes my next challenge. 6 weeks of doing 5x5, 3 times a week. Always good form. And adding in some pull ups/chin ups as an extra thing to do - assisted at first. I have the strong lifts 5x5 app on my ipod to use at the gym, will also set up the spreadsheet on google docs to keep track of my progress overall. Will add in chin ups too. I say this every challenge but i am excited about starting this, in that i feel like i've finally found something i enjoy that i can see good progress doing - which gives me a reason to keep doing it.
  13. I've named this challenge after "Phenomenal Woman" By Dr. Maya Angelou, may she rest in peace. If you don't know it, you should read it. This is in comic form if you're more of a visual person. Main goal: For this challenge I want to get down to 155lbs and my ultimate goal at the moment is 150lbs, which means 12lbs in 6 weeks. I've been loosing about 2lbs a week, so as long as I can keep it up, I should get there with some dedication. Goals: 1. Keep lifting 3x a week with SL5x5, I want to keep making progress on my lifts as well as loose weight. 2. Stick to 1,300 calories a day. I usually let myself have a few beers or something every few weeks with friends, but I want to stay really strict for this challenge. 3. Drink at least 3 water bottles full a day. I'm usually really good about water, but for the last few weeks I've been forgetting and I can see the difference. Life quest: This might be odd, but I really need a project. I'm bored to tears waiting for school to start, and without something to work on I just watch Netflix all day. My mom needs a dining room table set sanded and painted so I'll probably do that. I really like working with furniture and building things. Plus it's nice outside, so working outside should be fun. Motivation: This challenge is pretty simple, but it means a lot to me. This is the most in shape I've been in my whole life, and I'm not even at my goals yet. I'm so excited to see what else I'm capable of and what I look like in shape. That's pretty much my motivation. Also, 3 weeks into this challenge is Seattle Pride and I've always wanted to look awesome for pride. I'm hoping that with more specific but doable goals I can be more successful this challenge.
  14. Hey All, I've started the Strong Lifts program, and I am on work day two. Since these are two very important movements I wanted to get some feed back into my form before I get into the heavier weights. I feel pretty good about the squats, though I think I may need to increase my flexibility in my hips so I can get deeper into the squat. This is really my first ever attempt at a deadlift, so I'm sure I've done a million things wrong. Squats Deadlifts Thanks!
  15. First post is copy and pasted from last challenge thread to define the main quest that I am. Goals for this challenge can be found a bit down the page. Quest for Spartan Strength I have always identified with being a runner. I grew up a runner. I got away from running and allowed life to consume me. I became soft. I put on weight. I got reeeal slow. For the majority of 2013, I have been focused on reclaiming my body and my athleticism. I set the goal to become a member of the 2013 Spartan Trifecta Tribe. And, I completed that goal last challenge period. As we close out 2013, I'm starting to prepare my performance goals for 2014. And, as I put them together, one thing becomes clear. I want and need to be stronger. When people think about runners, they don't think "strong." They think of the skinny/lean marathon type. Well, I want to be a strong runner. I want to lift more than I am currently able to. I want to hit obstacles at Spartans and complete them faster because I am stronger. When my legs tire on a run, I want to be able to focus on my arms and know that they have the strength to continue to propel me forward. This doesn't mean that I am looking to change my body type. I am not focused on any vain reasons for getting stronger. I need to get stronger to perform better. Since, I am a Spartan Ranger, I believe a great measuring tool of my strength-level can be the Spartan 300 Workout. 25 Pull-ups 50 Deadlift at 135 lbs. 50 Push-ups 50 24" Box Jumps 50 Floor Wipers at 135 lbs. 50 Kettlebell Clean and press with 36 lbs KB (25 each arm) 25 Pull-ups Main Quest Goal: Complete the Spartan 300 Workout in under 30 mins
  16. As an assassin, we need the ability to throw our own body weight around pretty easily. This is still at times a difficult task, considering 175 pounds isn't the easiest weight to throw around. So I am coming to a fellow guild for this challenge (and possibly the next one also, to build up more muscle, I was doing SL5x5 last challenge, but I never really pushed myself like I will do this challenge. How will I do this? Off days will be 1700 calories (Yes, I know what you're thinking. And yes I am aware), gym days will be 2300-2500 calories. So 4x1700 and 3x2500 averaging at about 2000 calories a day with a minimum of 170g of protein and 250g of protein respectively. Until recently (last few weeks), I'm actually starting to fall in love with the appearance of my body, it's the best thing ever and like any long lasting friendship/relationship, I'm aiming to strengthen it. (ha, pun intended) For the fun stuff, GOALS! See this post for updated goals. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/39213-duality-throwin-around-some-iron-to-be-a-better-assassin/page-2#entry767890 Goal 1 : NOM NOM NOM properly. Eat 1700 calories / 170g of protein minimum on off days and 2500 calories / 250g of protein minimum on gym days Goal 2 : Stronkin' Strong Lifts 5x5, 3 times a week like the plan. M,W,F. Goal 3 : Chemicals For this 6 week cycle I will be taking a few things to help with my progress. Gym days (2 scoops, 2+2 caps and 2 pills), off days (2 scoops, 2 caps and 2 caps). Goal 4 : Zzzzzz..... Get to bed at latest 10pm the day before workouts. Goal 5 : Budgetize Recently at work, we're not doing so good for November, so I need to plan out a budget because they cut us 4 hours a week until Christmas.

  17. This is Kiwi reporting for duty - Im a New Zealand Girl, but travel a lot for work and adventure. Im a Scout and am currently undertaking my third NF challenge. As part of this challenge Im tracking what I eat everyday - also running in my trusty vibrams, planking like a boss and attempting to not procrastinate so much! So here I am - I have no intention of tracking calories etc this is just for observation at this stage to I can make small tweaks and learn what I can improve on.
