I'm shifting into battle mode for a 100 day transformation. I had a pretty horrifying DEXA scan which put me at 26% bodyfat, I've put on a ton of weight since my last scan 8 months ago. 5kg of fat and 3kg of muscle. The muscle is obviously great but the fat is not good so I'm hitting a 100 challenge to transform this. Dates: 1 April to 11 July Motivation: I'm going on holiday to Europe for 5 weeks, I want to be in great shape for that. Nutrition Goals: 1. See the nutritionist every 2 weeks 2. No Alcohol for the first month 3. Count calories, stick to what the nutritionist advises 4. Get a DEXA scan once a month for accurate progress check 5. Get below 20% Bodyfat / drop 6-7kg of fat. Fitness goals 1. Achieve 10 chained Double Unders ( I may PvP this) - Practice for at least 5 mins before each PT session. - - Try to get 10 DU's in 5 mins, only chained DU's count and they ladder not add up, i.e. 2,3,4 so the best number i get is what i count for that session i.e. 2+2 is not 4 it's 2. 2. Get a bar muscle up - Coach will program this for me. 3. Walk 100 miles (160km) - Average 12km a week, should be easily achievable. 4. Bodyweight Clean - I haven't discussed this with my coach yet but I want it.... Rewards: Month 1 If I get the whole month with no alcohol and have a good DEXA result I'll book a diving trip. There are 2 I have my eye on... Month 2 TBA Month 3 TBA That's it for now, more later....
I want to turn it up this challenge, so I’m going to fight villains instead of emulating heroes. The goals are the same, but in order to truly win this time I need bonus points. What has to this point been victory will be required for a draw, and bonus points will be needed for true victory. I return to my favorite franchise, The Transformers, for villains to defeat. Ramjet: Ramjet was, unsurprisingly, a jet who liked to Ram into things. It took power for that ramming action to do any damage, as well as a hard head. He will be my opponent for strength. Again I will be going for 10 lift days, which is the minimum to break even. To defeat him I need to be stronger, so I need at least one bonus lift day. Skywarp: Skywarp was a Starscream clone with a different color scheme. Some exec wisely figured out that they could use the same molds for different characters if they made them a different color and gave them unique characters. I never could keep Skywarp and Thundercracker straight when I was a kid, and to this day I can’t tell which was which just by looking at them. Skywarp could teleport from one place to another. In order to defeat him I will need to be fast, so I can get to his destination before him. The goal is still 10 run days, but that’s just not to lose. In order to defeat Skywarp I need at least one bonus run day. Megatron: My other goals are really locked in well and more importantly the results from them have been forthcoming. Where I have been lagging is on waistline reduction. I have been successfully completing my challenge goals, which means I need to up my game in this area, which is why I picked Megatron for this goal. There is no doubt Megatron is a tough opponent, when he and Optimus went one on one it seldom ended well for either of them. I still need to cook paleo with only 3 variances per week. That will mean we fight to a draw. In order to win I need at least 4 bonus points, earned by turning in unused variances. I’m not going to try and do too much too soon, because that leads to failure. If it comes down to it I could always stay paleo while counting calories, but that is not a long term solution. Better to build habits of fewer variances, and the best way to do that is by making small changes. Shockwave: Shockwave was the guardian of Cybertron in Megatron’s absence, holding his post and doing his best to maintain the homeworld till energy was brought back to revitalize it. He also turned into a ginormous pistol. Clean bathroom, kitchen, mop, vacuum, take out trash, do laundry 1x per week. In order to win I need at least two bonus points, gained by either getting everything done on Monday or Tuesday instead of waiting till later in the week, or by going above and beyond the basic requirements. Ravage: This little bastard caused more trouble to the Autobots than many full sized Decepticons. Laserbeak may have been a better spy, and Rumble and Frenzy may have been able to cause earthquakes, but Ravage was so fast and nimble he gave the Autobots fits in combat. To beat him I need to be more agile. Any combination of Foam Rolling or NF Yoga Mini session 3 times a week for a draw, 3 bonus points needed for victory.
This will be the second Tranformer’s themed Challenge of the year, again based on my favorite Cartoon Franchise. This will take a look at one of the most popular sub-groups of autobots, the DINOBOTS! Someone took a look at transformers, which was already awesome, and said, “You know what? Kids like dinosaurs. Let’s make robots that turn into Dinosaurs.” That person was a genius! I remember in Kindergarten we identified Dinosaurs not by their species’ names, but by the dinobots they resembled. We, Rangers, now am look at goals. Sludge: Me, Sludge am, uhhh. What word for whan can lift heavy stuff? 10 lift days. Sludge was the strongest dinobot, but not the smartest. Me, Tanktimus will lift 10 days during challenge. Swoop: Me Swoop, really fast! 10 Run days. Swoop wasn’t the strongest, but being the only dinobot who could fly in dino mode he was the fastest. Me, Tanktimus am going to Run 10 days this challenge to fly like him, Swoop. I’m part way into a 10k in under 65 min plan on Runkeeper. Rucking or Parkour can also count for a run day. Slag: Me, Slag, love eating decepticons! Eat paleo with no more than three variances/week. Me, Tanktimus, am eating paleo except can up to three times a week eat-not paleo. Slag need eat many decepticons to have fire breath. Seriously, how can you have a dinobots theme and not eat paleo? Grimlock: Me, Grimlock say DInobots need tidy headquarters! Domestic Rangering. Clean bathroom, kitchen, mop, vacuum, take out trash, do laundry 1x per week. Me, Tanktimus keep Tank cave clean and tidy to honor them, Dinobots. Grimlock was Me, Tanktimus favorite Dinobot, both because him, Grimlock am leader and because it easier to pretend to be T-Rex in Robot mode because can stand on two feet. Snarl: Me Snarl Super Bendy, can crush stuff with tail and spikes! Mobility. Any combination of Foam Rolling and an NF mobility Session for a total of 3 times a week. Me, Tanktimus am rolling muscles with foam of doom, and do mini-stretching so Me, Tanktimus can be nice and bendy. Dinobots: Attack!
It's time. IT'S TIME. For what, you may not have asked- BUT I'LL ANSWER ANYWAY! IT'S TIME... to get strong. Powerful. Bad. Ass. Becoming a certified and recognized badass takes time and effort, of course. The first of which I have in spades. The second.. ehh. [i'm lazy] A Bit About Me: I'm a 5'9 1/2, about 145 pound 18 year old girl who is currently attending college.I'm currently taking karate at my college [going on 6 months now!] and will continue after my classes are over.My Goals For This Challenge: Taking My Medicine Daily - It looks gross and tastes gross, but damn if it doesn't do well for my mental health.Water World - Drinking exclusively water. Liquid calories are no bueno.1 Minute Horse Stance - This is mainly to strengthen my knees; I've always had joint problems, so this SHOULD help. Any other suggestions would be welcome!Current Badass Level: Kitten. I have claws but no idea how to use them- Suck. This challenge is mainly to show myself that I CAN stick with something. There aren't any fitness-specific goals, only because of my Karate classes twice a week, which don't necessitate a goal at the moment. 3 is also a nice number.
