  1. COWABUNGA! Time to slap some peanut butter and avocado on top of your veggie pizza 'cause it's time to bulk with the turtles! 4 turtles, 4 goals, 4 weight gain! 1 - Leonardo - Maintain running and weightlifting. 12 week program is at 3 days a week and running at least 30 km a week (ideally across 4 short runs and 1 long run). 50% weightlifting, 50% running. 2 - Michelangelo - Bulking (food) Trying out the 12 week program I made and getting back to planning my food. I’m shooting to eat between 3100 and 3900 calories a day. I took some starting measurements on 2/6 and you can see them here. I did it in centimeters so that improvement is larger numbers (and I just plain like the metric system). My wife thinks I had her measure my shoulders wrong (the circumference vs. end to end). I am not shaped like a capital T. Points for planning ahead of time (50%) and hitting goals (50%) per day. I always allow weekends and holidays as an exception. 3 - Donatello - Finances - Still waiting on that performance evaluation/raise meeting, btw. My wife and I should both get bonuses this month so we need to see how much we have and what we want to do with them. Probably wipe out the credit card and start a savings account for a down payment on a house. If we see a way to save/make money we’ll try to take it. % of the bonuses used responsibly is the % completed. 4 - Raphael - Hobbies (Guitar). I want to get back to trying to practice now that my family very generously set me up with an entire electric setup and headphones so I can practice without disturbing a baby. I’ll sign up at Justinguitar.com at my brother’s insistence and see how they do what they do. Something guitar-related every week. I saw that Ninja Turtles concert live, btw. It had so little continuity an six year old fanboy noticed problems. 5 - Splinter (bonus) - Saturday is a rugby day! It’s peak tournament season which means my wife is streaming games on at least 2 continents every weekend and inviting people over. I want to make for a good game host so I want to try and knock out some good dips, snacks, and keep the house clean. Also, God bless the internet. That’s one of the local rugby clubs dressed up in ninja turtle jerseys instead of their standard uniform (Charles River Rugby Club). I want to clean and try a new recipe every week. This includes my wife's birthday party.
  2. It's time to kick 2017 off with an awesome challenge! I decided to draw inspiration from one of my childhood favorites: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My main goal this year is to 1. start longboarding and 2. be able to do headstands. And in order to do that, I need lots of flexibility. And what better inspiration (I almost typed "butter" instead of "better" lol) than these guys? Each of the turtles have a dominant trait. Granted, some of the dominant traits- like Raphael's temper- aren't good or something I want to achieve, but each brother has a positive attribute that I would like to achieve. Since I have a teething 6-month-old, weeks will alternate from a busy week to an easy week. And I'll post my workout plan for the current week. Let's Break It Down! Leonardo Leo is the leader. Leo is good at making plans but has to constantly work on finding ways to adpt them to work with his brothers. My Leo-goals are to 1) make a workout plan and stick with it, 2) make a diet plan and stick with it, and 3) to find balance because you can't be a good leader without being a bit flexible. Raphael Raph is the fighter. Sure is short temper often gets him into trouble but his physical strength makes him a great ally during a fight. My Raph-goals are to 1) do wall headstands, 2) planks and side planks, and 3) complete 1 strala workout to build my upper body. Michelangelo Mikey is the clown. He's the goofball out of the bunch but he does know how to have fun. One thing I struggle with is letting live overwhelm me and basically "try to adult" while stressing myself out waaaaaaaaaaay to much. My Mikey-goals are 1) to go outside and explore, and 2) play either piano or guitar for 5 minutes a day. Yes, I know that's not a lot of time but I have a never-ending cycle of laundry and dishes and a baby that has discovered how to pull things off of shelves... so I think 5 minutes will suffice for now. Donatello Donny is the brains. He's the science/tech guy. Donny is not known for impressive physical strength but for having a sharp mind. My Donny-goals are 1) read 30 minutes a day, 2) try meditation, and 3) read 1 Psalm a day.
  3. Main Quest Prepare for a 99 miler on August 8-9. News Year's Resolutions Keep Calm & Play Background Definitely time to get ready for the ultra. So long runs and daily running really help that.

  4. Introduction: Hey, I'm Josh, and this is my third challenge! I like road bikes, but I live in the city and I own a mountain bike, so it's really more of a mountain bike on a road.

  5. Introduction: Hey, I'm Josh, and this is my second challenge! I like road bikes, but I live in the city and I own a mountain bike, so it's really more of a mountain bike on a road. I also love bodyweight exercises, but I have a really hard time getting out of bed and consistently doing it. The only time I have available to workout is the morning because I'm still in college (MY LAST SEMESTER!!!) I live an active lifestyle and my job requires a lot of energy, as my career demands physical fitness (I work in the theatre, so actually, my name is currently Jack Raymon. Detective Jack Raymon). I joined the rebellion because I really want a community that pushes me to stay fit and to improve my body. I want to be able to dance and spend an entire day working (for example, at a Renaissance Festival) without being utterly exhausted by the end.

  6. Coming back from the depths of last challenge where I struggled to get back into gear, comes a new day where I'm ready to take on the next challenge! This time around I'm going to work on being consistent because looking back at the last challenge, I sucked at it immensely. Also, since my end goal is to ultimately learn parkour, I believe picking up the skill of consistency will help get me to my end goal. Challenge Objectives: Main Quest (overall) to learn Parkour (Current Challenge) To be consistent! Health Quest (+1 STR, +1 DEX, +1 STA) TMNT Workout (MWF) Running (T,TH)Side Quest: Eat a salad at least three times a week. Creative Quest (+3 WIS) Draw or paint at least once a week Write something (paragraph, journal entry, or something just to get my mind to loosen up a bit)Side Quest: Finish space paintings from last challenge (3) Life Quest (+1 CHA) get back into schoolget a job​Side Quest: Update challenge every friday Grading Health Quest: A - all five days within the week B - four days a week C - three days within the week D - two days within the week F - one day/No days at all. Creative Quest: ​Art A - Art for the week F - no art Writing A - writing all five days in the week B - four days C - three days D - two days F- one day/ no days Life quest Pass - if I get a job or get back into school ( no fail because getting accepted is totally out of my control) So I believe this isn't too much work for me to handle. I'm pretty good at keeping up with my workouts and I'm cutting back the salad because prices went up and I'm broke. The only things I'm truly worried about is the creative stuff because I'm lazy as hell, but having it to just be an open ended thing instead of something specific, it'll let my brain to relax a little. My mind works in mysterious ways so hopefully this will work. Also, I'm cutting back on my updates because it proved too much to do at one time, and since I'm focusing on being consistent, I'm going to try update every friday and use it as a recap and see how that works out. I also need to find a better grading system. This challenge is gonna be fun. I'm pretty happy about all the support I got last challenge and excited for everything that will happen during this one.
  7. Mini-Challenge #1: Our City is Under Attack! This is April O’Neil with Channel 6 News on the streets of Assassin City (Assacity?) to bring this report on Tiberius the Trumpet playing Bear. Not much to report. Just look at this bear that plays the trumpet. Wow. Truly a thing to behold. Oh no. Do you here that? What is that? **the ground starts to shake beneath Ms. O’Neil's feet and the music gets more dramatic** Hahahaha. Look at this pathetic city. I hear the Turtles and Master Splinter are taking refuge in this city’s sewer system. I plan to find them and defeat my foes once and for all. And there is no one here that can stop me. Hey. Reporter lady. Are these cameras still rolling. Uhhhh… yeah. Then hear me citizens of Assacity. You will give up these turtles and rat to me or I will see to it that you all meet your certain doom. There is no way you can defeat I, the powerful ninja, Shredder! **smoke bomb** Assacity, if you are hearing me right now. It is time to step up. Shredder is planning to destroy your beautiful city and he plans to defeat the ninja turtles. Without your help he is sure to succeed. I know you are all busy being awesome Assassins, but you need to gather together to be ready for the attacks on the city. Call out to your neighbors. Tell them they need to prepare. Motivate each other to get ready to protect your city! Translation: This first week is about coming together as a guild. We’re going to need all of our awesome Assassins to contribute to save our city during these 6 weeks of mini-challenges. So I implore you all to go to other Assassin “houses” (threads) and say ‘hi’ and give a motivational word or two or eleven. Make sure to keep up on updates and say ‘hey, how’s it going’ if they go missing for a few days. Assassins always be lurking in the shadows. Also remember to search for threads with fewer posts, because sometimes those are the ones that need the most motivation We’re going to need all of our awesome Assassiny skills this challenge. We need our muscley BWW peeps to be ready and strong to punch the bad guys in the face. We need our aerialist to be up high lurking in the shadows and ready to pounce on our foes. We need the swift feet of our parkour friends. The climbing ability of our climbers is important in case… climb? (Sorry… sometimes it is hard for me to life properly.) Anywhos, I know that just checking out on other’s threads isn’t particularly challenging especially for such an outstanding guild. So we are role-playing a walking challenge. In order to get to other Assacity houses you got to hoof it there, so this is walking, running, prancercizing… whatever tickles your fancy. So this is basically cumulative guild cardio and the first goal that we have to reach is 1000 minutes. div#progressbar:hover div { -webkit-animation: animate-stripes 0.4s linear infinite; -moz-animation: animate-stripes 0.4s linear infinite; } @-webkit-keyframes animate-stripes { 0% {background-position: 0 0;} 100% {background-position: 23px 0;} } @-moz-keyframes animate-stripes { 0% {background-position: 0 0;} 100% {background-position: 23px 0;} } 100%100% Thanks Harika Update: Well the Assassins have crushed the first task and everyone is alert in the city. But just as everyone has gathered the Foot has dropped in for an attack. 500 Foot ninja soldiers that need to be taken down with punching and kicking. Squat Punch, Hook, Upper-Cut: http://www.warriorxf...t-with-uppercut ** in the video a resistance band is used, but it doesn't have to be used for the exercise to count. It was just the only video of this exercise I could find with someone doing an actual squat... hrrrm. Maybe I will make my own video.** Sit-up Cross Punch: Front kicks: https://www.youtube....h?v=hrWmBde-F_w New spreadsheet is posted underneath. Each Foot is 10 hit points to incapacitate so we need a total of 5000 collective hits and kicks. 251 down! Other rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenge hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - If you already have some kind of cardio training in your challenge, then yes! It counts for both - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! There’s a spreadsheet to tally your movements: {completed} https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1y7ydQhqjGWC4kmsWKBzkCoj-4bKsII2p7QrEF_UbWxo/edit?usp=sharing (first task complete, but please continue to walk, run, skip, dance and do your assassiny things and add them to the sheet. This will give me a better understanding of guild participation in the future for better challenge goal setting on my part {new task} https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16dp2WKD4DCWFgDT0GlydkcNpXc55ul_74xSjzicaYJ8/edit#gid=0 Everyone who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 STA for making your way around Assacity. Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  8. OK, I admit this is a bit of a weird one.... Firstly, I'm not into Furry thing. I'm not passing any judgement on those who are but this 6WC is just me indulging my nostalgia and my imagination as a way to motivate and structure my training. Right then... I used to love the TMNT roleplaying game as a kid. Long before any cartoon or films appeared, there were the comics and the RPG. It was visceral. It was funny. It was well written (admittedly as a counter to the increasingly gritty and cynical media of the 80's). It was also one of my first introductions to roleplaying games (after d&d). So I have a soft spot for it. The increasing news of the latest reboot from Michael Bay (about which I still have mixed feelings) has kept me in a nostalgic mood when it comes to the subject. The RPG was called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness. It featured the eponymous turtles as examples but you were encouraged to create your own bizarre, original, funny, tragic and/or heroic mutant animal characters. It was great craic and I remember fondly not only playing but indulging my creative side by generating countless oddball characters (some of which might make an appearance in this 6WC) So, this is my "TMNT part 3: Other Strangeness" challenge (with Firefly sidequest). So, this is following a "mutant animal" theme - concepts and goals will be epitomized by the characteristics of certain animals, which will be anthropomorphized for the purposes of mimicking their qualities. These mutant animals might be well known characters (e.g. Master Splinter embodying discipline or Raphael embodying Sai training... or berserker rage ) or they might be "new" characters (such as a mutant Gorilla representing "beast mode strength training" or a mutant Wolverine representing endurance and outdoor activities) Some of the new characters will need names - please feel free to suggest some as they appear. These mutant/anthropomorphized animals will be my... Spirit Guides, I guess. They will inspire my training and workouts. Along with the other goals. (Don't worry if I start reporting on their antics as thought they were real people - I'm not writing or running any RPGs right now and my storytelling reserve tends to start leaking after a while) onto the specifics... The Turtles and the Newt: Martial Arts. The Turtles rock when it comes to weapons! In my case, Donatello and Raphael - as my oriental weapons training concentrates on Sai and Bo. I might play with swords and nunchaku a bit too... but we'll see Embodying the karate practice is... The Karate Newt!! (sorry the gif sucks. best I could do on short notice ) Karate every Wednesday. Helping with the juniors class as and when needed. Time is short but I should be able to make enough of it to practice my katas (armed and unarmed) at least twice a week outside of my regular classes. +1 STR, +1 DEX, +1STA, +1 WIS NB the Karate Newt needs a name... he's a slightly manic, hyperactive, mutant newt version of Master Ken. distinctly less cool than any of the turtles but doesn't realize it. Splinter's Discipline. This is about diet and routine. I'll keep a food diary. This is my first time trying to keep a food diary (despite having meant to for ages!) so I'll cut myself some slack here and concentrate mainly on keeping it up to date on Mondays - Fridays. In theory, this should help me maintain a fairly low carb/low grain paleo-esque diet... It will also help me make sure my caloric intake is about right. Treat day at the weekend is planned. +2 Wis, +2 CON Cheetahs, Tigers and Gorillas! Oh my..?! Exercise: Cardio, Strength and some Animal-Flow. Tiger Strength training: Twice a week. Embodied by Rugshasa, the mutant Tiger! (Whose name derived from some d&d players wanting to open a shop. They had recently skinned a bunch of Rakshasa so I suggested calling the place Rugshasas) Bodyweight or Kettlebells, some machines <spit!> because I have limited access to free weights. The Lat-Pull-Down machine and the Chest Press machine will supplement push ups, pull ups (well, hanging shrugs at this stage), kettlebell stuff and squats/lunges. Intensity is the key here! This is BEAST MODE. When I'm not going TIGER, I'm going SILVERBACK! Cheetah Cardio training: Interval sprints twice a week (on non-tiger days). My gym time is too short for longer/slower cardio So Cheetah Style Sprints it is! I typically go easy for 60 seconds and hard for 30. Each session I will max out the speed on treadmill at least once. By the end of the challenge, I want to be maxing it out the treadmill more than once and bringing my "rest" time down to 45 seconds. Doing an image search for anthropomorphized cheetahs started getting disturbing results so I'll just use a pretty picture of a normal one.... Animal-Flow: uhm, yeah. Thanks Kishi, for the idea. Now I've gotta actually learn some of this stuff!! Well, I guess I'll start by introducing some of the moves into my warm ups and my non-Tiger days in the gym. The first six of these will be a nice start I think (the more locomotive movements are tricky considering the tiny size of the gym) Getting tired of searching for anthropomorphic animals. That last search has left me scarred... So here's "a chameleon that looks like you owe him an explanation for what you just did". NB the cheetah, the silverback and the chameleon all need names +2 STR, +1 DEX, +1STA Wolves and Wolverines. Some kind of hiking / camping event. Well, that's nice and vague... And that's how it'll remain until I can organize it but at some point over the next six weeks, I'm taking to the hills for a nice long walk and an overnighter. Just for the hell of it. well, and the exercise and the "getting away from technology for an evening" thing. My inspiration for this is "minimalist survival". As embodied by the fuzzy little fellow above. Don't let his "cutesy Snake Pliskin teddy bear look" fool you. This is Caesar, a mutant wolverine of terrifying stature (3'7") who had a train load of guns and explosives. He's a weirdo survivalist embodied in the form of an Ewok from Hell! +1 WIS, +1 STA And of course there's the Firefly themed sidequest... Hitch a Ride! Part of the course I'm on includes securing a couple of days a week work placement over the winter months. The sooner I sort it out, the better my options will be. So I'm gonna do my damnedest(?) to sort the gorram business out sooner rather than later! +1 CHA
  9. Introduction: Hey, I'm Josh, and this is my first challenge. I like to ride mountain bikes, but I live in the city, so it's really more of a mountain bike on a road... I also love bodyweight exercises, but I have a really hard time staying motivated and consistently doing it. I have a job that requires a lot of physical activity and a career path that demands physical fitness (I work in the entertainment industry). I joined the rebellion because I really want a community that pushes me to stay fit and to improve my body. I want to be able to dance and spend an entire day working (for example, at a Renaissance Festival) without being utterly exhausted by the end. Main Quest: Be able to do a handstand by Christmas. Quest 1: TMNT Workout for 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week. Measurement: A = 3 days a week, B = 2 days a week, C = 1 day a week Reward: A = +3 STR, +2 STA, B = +2 STR, +1 STA, C = +1 STR Quest 2: Bike for at least 5 miles OR Run for 3 miles, 3 days a week. Measurement: A = 5+ Miles, B = 3-4 miles, C = 0-2 miles Reward: A = +3 STA, B = +2 STA, C = +1 STA Quest 3: Practice Handstands for 5 Minutes every day. Measurement: A = 5 Minutes, Every Day; B = 3-4 Minutes, 5 Days, C = 0-2 Minutes, <5 Days Reward: A = +3 STR, +2 STA, B = +2 STR, +1 STA, C = +1 STR Life Quest: Eat 3 Square Meals a day (excluding Ramen and Pizza) and talk to someone about fitness once a week. I tend to skip a meal, because I'm cheap and I want to save money, and I'm too embarrassed to talk to people about this stuff. Measurement: A = 42 days, B = 36 days, C = 30 days Reward: A = +2 CHA, +2 WIS; B = +1 CHA, +1 WIS; C = +0.5 CHA, +0.5 WIS Motivation: I want to be fit and healthy for my job so I'm not always exhausted. I want to have more energy for the day and to do all sorts of fun things without being too tired. I want to look good for my girlfriend and be able to carry her easily. I want to feel good about my body and how I'm taking care of it.
  10. Hi and welcome at my 7th challenge While waiting for my elbow to heal (so I can start strength training and martial arts) I'm going to focus on establishing some habits. They should asured that I keep on going forward while healing instead of just sitting on my ass and eating bad stuff. 1. Philoshopy: Stay Positive, Stay Content - 10 min day planning and 'positive' thinking after morning meditation – 5 Work days/week 2. Nutrition: Healthy breakfast – not-bread– 5 work days/week 3. Fitness: Move my body 3x/week 4. Life Quest – Learning Math 240min per week – plan: 4x60min after work: M,T,Th,F btw. I'm little tmnt oriented other habits I've implemented in my earlier challenges: Nutrition Doing healthy salad in bulks for entire work-week – Fri/ Sat Doing grocery shopping 1x/week at weekends Eating 1-2 fruits at work Philosophy Morning meditation at workdays– I’m cool with 10mins for now Fitness Morning 1mile walk at workdays– right after waking up – I did that all winter and I am back since November. It wakes me up better than jug of coffee and it works magic for my health – like a vaccine Activity – 2h dance classess with my fiancé – Wed 8-10pm Life stuff writing my fantasy book – Wed – 1h after work – I treat it more as a time of uncensored creativity than a try of becoming a writer. I did it a while ago, then my life got too busy and few weeks back I re-started that habit.
  11. Go to GOALS if you don’t have time for my imaginary creations! It’s gonna be a long one. I had some fun with it Reflections It’s my 6th challenge. I consider the 5th being the first that I actually enjoyed and did awesome. Yeah, it took a while By the way I realized that so far my challenges were chaotic, undirected and haven’t got any to do with achieving a level of fitness that my race describes: Half Dwarf Half TMNT. It’s weird yet comforting thought that I needed an injury to get that. Better late than ever. Now I have the plan for my journey with no specific ending actually and I like it that way. I made first step on that way in 5th challenge, it’s the Way of the Turtle 5th turtle begins… During my 5th challenge in my head poped-up a nickname for my alter-ego: Panczo, the 5th turtle. As I assume I will wear black bandana and of course fight with an axe BUT before I deserve this attributes, I must go through YEARS of training with each of the TMNTurtles! It will be divided into 4 stages: meditation (healing and chilling), bw strength (yoga, holds, bw exercises), acrobatic skills (flare, handsprings, capoeira, etc.) and martial arts. 4 stages of training = 4 ninja turtles as teachers. Furthermore there will be few other skills to obtain before becoming rightful 5th turtle. And I can forget about dwarf part in my race too! I might be broken, but I refuse to give up So it’s time to write a fucking awesome story of a comic superhero. Prologue’s behind us. Time for 1st chapter. Ready, steady, (slowly) go! The goals itself: (goals - simpler) Stage 1: “Healing and Chilling†continues aka “Meditation and How to Dance and Swim Like a Turtle†Teacher: (of course) Leonardo go through MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) 8-week long program from John Kabat-Zinn’s book: Full Catastrophe Living. It means some kind of meditation 6 days/week. About 1-1.5 hour per day – hardcore style! LIFE: Learn mathematics namely Saga Continues – at least 210mins per week (I had 180min last time)Side quests: every week make healthy meal in bulks for entire week. Veggie-rich salad, rice with meat and veggies, soups, etc. I did this last time too. Good for health – I think so J do at least 15mins of activity 3 times per week. Ideas: DANCING, SWIMMING, biking, easy yoga, walking, etcSuccesful challenge = Level Up = 80% of goals 1 and 2 Final notes I know it looks like overplanning again. Maybe it is. But there will be no better moment to try MBSR program and I can’t resign of learning math (it gives me hope for better job perspectives). Plan for this challenge: meditation is TOP PRIORITY! Math comes second. After completing MBSR I will back down with meditation a bit but first the program!Do as much meditation as I can before work and math during work (good sides of working only with my father) so the afternoons can be free for other things in life (like planning the wedding , writing my epic quest, etc)If I can’t achieve goals 3 and 4 I can still success in this challenge. They are here more for reminders to take care of myself than to push me through.I will be attending dancing classes once per week with my girl and I hope to do some swimming 1x/week so activity should be doablePs. After seeing an orthopedist I’m taking two medicines currently: for my elbow and knee. Doc said my knee wasn’t damaged, just the structure of the cartilage is not right. Elbow still has some minor inflammation. 40 days from now I’m going again for check up! Perfect match in time with nf challenges Ok. End of talking. time to plant seeds... Go ninja go! )LEGEN… aahh the 90's … DARY!!!
