    The Ol' Nerd Challenge

    Summary for the quick reader: Likes: pull / push / bend Tools: body weight, parallettes, aerial silks, ball Epic quest: complete GMB Parallettes 2 (P2) Somewhat low key challenge as life is crazy-busy these days BUT that's exactly when I should be careful about keeping up with practice and other sanity-related goals! I will move back to text-based reporting and use cowsay, a very old Linux command line utility (showing my age probably), to generate extremely fancy reports. Here is a preview: [mu@safran nf10]$ echo "Hello and welcome!" | cowsay -y ____________________ < Hello and welcome! > -------------------- \ ^__^ \ (..)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || || Yeah I know Just wait for it, it has many crazy ASCII options (not all SFW). GMB Parallettes 2 recap: Prep phase: 4 weeks + deload week /done Phase 1 cycle 1: 3 weeks + deload week /done Phase 1 cycle 2: 3 weeks + deload week /done Phase 1 cycle 3: 3 weeks + deload week /done Phase 2 cycle 1: 4 weeks + deload week / done Phase 2 cycle 2: 3 weeks + deload week /on-going Bah more than 6 months of P2 already! Crazy! The original programme is supposed to be 6 months... but I definitely need more time (how do people get the lever spin in 4 weeks??). Here is my full training log so far with ref videos for whoever is interested in GMB P2 / Parallettes progressions. This challenge will look like this: NF break week = Deload – lenient reporting / test week Week 1 + 2 + 3 = P2 Phase 2 Cycle 3 Week 4 = Deload Goals: (1) Epic quest: P2 & HS training P2 3x/week and make sure HS training is happening 3x/week (P2 workouts include some). OR deload week 5x/week (shorter and lower intensity, including HS and no evaluation/scoring) (2) Next is all my usual training stuff. Besides aerial and stretching, there is a list of drills that I need to include here and there in my workouts. The deload format also takes it down a notch in intensity (easier variation, fewer reps) Stretching (hips, back) – 2x/week Hanging raises – 6x/week Cirque Physio – 24 drills /week (deload: 12 drills /week) Legs (traditional leg stuff) – 4 drills /week Ball flex (ball held on a flexed foot work) – 4 drills /week Aerial (flow, skills, alignment, conditioning) – 3x/week (usually 1 big session + 2 light ones) I'm not going to report on those as extensively as I used to (with reps and all), it just needs to happen. I have been consistent enough so far. If I see some dwindling, I might revert to stricter reporting (Log.SEVERE). (3) Stop using a screen by 10PM. Coding / gaming / watching a movie / social media - all count. I'm allowed 1 joker per week. I will keep track of the good days and count overtime as penalty score. (4) Track my coffee consumption. Just track for now. NB1: My week starts on Saturday NB2: Monday is rest day (edit: except on deload weeks oddly enough maybe) Have a good challenge everyone!
