  1. Nak here This is my second challenge and the first one I'm posting on the Monk topic; if I get lazy shame me into being not so lazy. If anyone's interested my discipline is Muay Thai. Anyway, on with the challenge. Goal 1: All eight limbs Last challenge and the break between that and this one were the opportunity for me to rebuild the fundamental skills of Muay Thai after a year of being lazy with inconsistent training. My first goal is to continue to develop those skills to reach and surpass my previous level. The best way to do this is through consistent Muay Thai training, that means: Bagwork at least once per week (preferably twice) Technique training once per week Padwork once per week Sparring once per week A little shadow sparring every day (even if it's just a few minutes) Goal 2: Powerful body, powerful strikes When two fighter's clash it's always in the first instance an issue of skill, but to think skill alone is enough is a fatal illusion. A fighter's body has to be powerful and it has to endure the pain from without and the pain from within. We all know what this pain from within is: when your heart's pumping battery acid, you feel like the next time you move your legs they'll send you crashing to the ground and your lungs can't take in enough oxygen to fuel your body. So while you're fighting the external enemy you're also waging a full on war with the internal enemy, your own weakness. To help me win this war, on top of the workouts in the training sessions outlined above I'm using a variation of the "Good Behavior" program from Convict Conditioning, except with ab wheels and my own core circuit in place of the leg raises variations he recommends (my doorway pull up bar makes hanging leg raises awkward). Additionally I'm throwing in a circuit of burpees every single day. Doesn't matter if I have training later, if it's midnight, if I feel like I might die. If I can drag my carcass out of bed I do these burpees EVERY SINGLE DAY. Additionally I like to run a little bit because it clears my head so I want to do that at least once per week. Goal 3: No shame in pride I need to drop 2-3 kg (depending on if I've been to the toilet!) to get back down to my fighting weight. Once I'm there my goal is to stay there and continue losing as much fat as possible and replacing that with muscle to get ripped. The logic of this is twofold: firstly a fighter in a Thai match should try and have as little excess fat as possible. Secondly I'm going to Barcelona soon and I want to look sexy as fook (no shame in pride I tell you). Train well, fight well. I welcome any input you guys might have. Nak out
  2. CHOO CHOO HERETICS!!! I have not finished my last challenge, but ya'll know I am not one for rules! I am BlackTezca, returning once again, but this time I may not your browsers with gifs! This time I'll just use memes to entertain! Not only will this thread entertain you, but you also have enjoyed my DYNAMIC ENTRY with journey From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel!, checked out whatever draft insanity and nonchallenge silliness I have with my battelog BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards Feline Greatness and soon I will also win my latest war BlackTezca's 9th Trial: An Artsy Geeky Amazon Battles Against Curses and Keeps Hope Alive! War is a big THEME here I have chosen, since most you know may know that I have been chosen by the Ethereal Caste to join our technologically advance Tau brothers to battle for the Greater Good against those who would oppose our Grandest of Grand Destinies! I have been transported into the 41st millennium to fight against the forces of Chaos, the bloody bastard Orks, the insect gluttonous Tyrannids, the racist and down primitive Imperium of Man, the almost facing copyright lawsuit undead robot assholes Necrons, and the stuck up, snobby, should've died out long again Eldar. These are my enemies and I will win! Even if we Tau haven't gotten our melee game down... This time, I am taking a bit of a break from planning out my novel, The Primal Soldiers, but I am still going to tackle on my artwork for the story and finish my profile image. Not only that. but we Tau are lacking in melee and need to work on getting up close and personal with our strikes. I shall relieve myself of stress by becoming more mindful as well as cleanse myself of impurities for The Greater Good. As well work on my taxes, because War costs money! All this is to help me master my most meaningful and ever lasting quest...my MAIN quest... My Main Quest is to be as POWERFUL and BATTLE READY as Wonder Woman These challenges have been short and compact thanks to the length. Though I am Tau, I have realized that WE are not racist, fanatical crazies and the other races have beautiful they can offer for The Greater Good. They may not see it, but we Tau clearly do and thus I have taken inspiration from these people in order to further improve myself and my armies to expand our glorious Empire. Perhaps then they will accept our generous offer for them to join us and take on our philosophy for The Greater Good. If not, we shall shoot them dead. But that's another fight . Orks - Muay Thai to prepare for WAAAAAAAAGH!!!! Details: Orks love to fight the biggest and baddest fighta's all around. These cockney green bitches love getting into a rumble and I enjoy it too. Thus I shall go to Kickboxing or Muay Thai at Easton at least twice a week this time. Aim for Muay Thai but count Kickboxing as well. Contingencies: Shouldn't be an issue; I have a lot of options for times, though if something comes up, I can substitute a cardio kickboxing instead of going to Easton. Let's pump myself up and keep up this habit! Tracking: I'll be tracking the workouts using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca and this lovely thread will be updated as well. Grading: A for Kickboxing/Muay Thai Workouts three a week ( 25 pt - 2 Dex 1 Sta 1 Str ) B for Kickboxing/Muay Thai Workouts twice a week ( 20 pts - 1 Dex 1 Sta ) C for Kickboxing/Muay Thai Workouts once a week ( 15 pts - 1 Dex ) F for all else Adeptus Soritas - Keep your Faith and Be Mindful. Do not be clouded by fear. Details: Though closely related to another group down below, the Adeptus Soritas, or Sisters of Battle, are loyal to only one being; The God Emperor. Their faith is so strong that they have no periods of doubt, even in the bloodies of war. These women are a force to be reckoned with and will cleanse any doubt (or heathen Xenos) with fire. I want to practice a bit of mindfulness myself. Not meditation per say, but to do a short exercise to help ease my head and stress. For this I shall use this list of mindfulness exercise a few times a week. I may also do some yoga just to help relax as a substitute. Contingencies: No contingencies. Just need to remember to do at least one mindfulness exercise, especially when feeling stressed. Tracking: I'll be tracking by updating this thread at least five times daily. Grading: A for Stress-relieving mindfulness 4 to 5 times a week ( 20 pt - 2 Cha 1 Con ) B for Stress-relieving mindfulness 2 to 3 times a week ( 15 pts - 1 Cha ) F for all else Tau - Less Drinking For the Greater Good Details: We Tau believe in doing the best for 'The Greater Good' or the best for everyone (that's Tau or accepts Tau philosophy. We are not racists). We are a society that treasures the whole over the individual and this successful motto turned then from a race of hunters and gatherers to a small but growing technological super power. Therefore I will face my hardest challenge: I will limit myself to two drinks a week with only ONE cheat day. Anytime I drink more than two drinks a week, I will do ten burpees per extra drink or knock off the grade. This is March. This sucks. Contingencies: Either I can drink during the final ski trip of the season or if Brent and I do the big Collaboration Beer Festival. That's it. Only one of those can be a cheat day. Tracking: I will be tracking using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca and this lovely thread will be updated as well. Grading: A for only two drinks a week + burpee penalties for extra drinks ( 20 pt - 2 Con 1 Wis ) B for only three drinks a week + burpee penalties for extra drinks ( 15 pts - 2 Con ) C foronly four drinks a week + burpree penalties for extra drinks ( 10 pts - 1 Con ) F for all else Harlequins - Everything for the Art Details: A once proud and powerful race, the Eldar are now a endangered, fragmented, broken species. The birth of 'She Who Thirsts' destroyed all the Old Gods...but one. Cegorach, the Trickster God, laughed his ass out of dodge and is the last remaining Old God, and his cast of players, the Harlequins, remain to continue the old Eldar traditions and perfect the Art of Death. So I shall do the same (except...without the death part) and just work on my art now, with some focus on character portraits for the people in my story. Wanted to take a little bit of a planning break to just do various pieces of art. Contingencies: Final ski trip and some busy weekends my hamper this but not too much. Tracking: I have an art Tumblr and I also have DeviantArt (WATCH ME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY). I shall use those and this thread to keep track. Grading: A for at least 30 minutes 4 to 5 days a week - 25 exp ( 2 Wis 2 Cha ) B for at least 30 minutes 2 to 3 days a week - 20 exp (1 Wis 1 Cha) F for all else The Inquisition - Pay your Debt to the Emperor Details: The Inquisition are racist and fanatical enforcers of the imperium. Anything that is deemed heretical means certain death...or worse...and IT'S TAX SEASON AND I HAVEN'T DONE MY TAXES YET AND I NEED A REMINDER TO DO THEM!!! Contingencies: None! It's TAX SEASON! Tracking: This thread! DID I DO THE DAMN THING YET?! Grading: A for Taxes completed! ( 10 exp - 1 Wis ) F for all else (and the IRS/Inquisition will come and claim Exterminatus on my home, my family, my cow, etc) This challenge has taken shape! I have all that I need to fully succeed! Here are my measurements, apparently required from the Water Caste to use in our motivational speeches when it's time to fight! Starting Measurements: Date: 02/28/2016 @ 10:30 am Weight: 130.2 ***Body Fat***: 22% Waist: 23 Waist @ Navel: 24 Hips: 34.5 Neck: 12 Chest: 32 Left Bicep: 11 Right Thigh: 16 Wrist: 5.5 Forearm: 9 Ooof. Definitely need to drink less for the greater good! Been a little too loose with my diet and it shows in these measurements! Nothing that can't be fixed though! The future is grim, the future is dark, the future is GRIM DARK! There is always endless fighting. But victory is around the horizon and the forces of chaos will be driven back so there can be...further war with other factions because that is the Warhammer 40k Universe! I have chosen my quests for true victory! FOR THE GREATER GOOD I WILL SHOOT AND BLAST THIS CHALLENGE OUT OF MY WAY TO FURTHER OUR CONQUEST OF THE GALAXY!!! THIS MEANS WAR(hammer 40k). LET'S KICK ASS!!!!
