  1. Welcome all! I’m a married parent of 4 kids aged 0-8. I’m ultimately an adventurer at heart, though I train similar to a lot of Rangers (and I’m something of a Druid Paladin which is also something of an equivalent to a Ranger). I love hiking, exploring, traveling, and other fun things with the family. Since shortly before joining Nerdfitness, my physical training is typically built around injury rehabilitation (which happens a bit more often due to autoimmune arthritis) and training to be able to travel, explore, and play with my family. I have a pretty effective Disney World training syste

  3. Red1263 coming in and out consciousness, he hears voices... he thinks. "Hey!... I think he's de..." "... yeah? What ever gave you that idea?" "Well, he fell..." "Yes! When he fell through the ceiling!... Just grab wh... and go..." "Uhhnn... Who dat? Who dere?" "Whoa! He's alive!" "Ahh!! Run!" Red1263 struggles to get up, searching for his sword. "I'm... I'm still alive! Where are you?" His vision starts to get clearer. "Ohhh... My head... Lousy Gravity Knight... Where did he send me?" He scans his surroundings, there's no one there, but Red1263 sees himself in a winding, but n
  4. I'm closing in on 4 years in the forum now, having done my NF Introduction back right before leaving The North. I've finally been able to catch-up on updating my original training log, Third World Warrior: The Eight-Year Training Log (after some technical difficulties deleting like 2 years of logs) and I'll be using the Daily Battle Logs to both track my training and consolidate my challenges. I have been all over the place most of my life, hence many challenges with Rangers, but my issue is that I feed my training ADD and just ride the tides, making hay when the sun's out. Because of this I'v
  5. I suggest you put this on your speakers while you're here Welcome to Glorantha, a heroic, mythic place of heroes and gods, where people hold allegiance to tribe, city, and cult, not to abstract alignments or ideologies. Although humanity is the dominant species, their dominance is due only to the quarrelling of the Elder Races, who still rule large parts of the world. In Glorantha, the gods and goddesses are real, and through their cults they play an important role in most major events. Would-be heroes of the age are known as adventurers, and each is tied to several of the Run
  6. Yay new challenge time! After my respawn I'm super excited for challenge no. 2. These things are very motivating, aren't they? One day I'll write some nice flavour text about my epic journey to badassery, but I'm a little brain dead this evening So, here's my three goals: Maintain the respawn! Do some flexibility training/stretching every single day Eat 2 of every food colour each day And some specifics on these... 1. My last challenge was to do 3 workouts a week (a mixture of bodyweight circuits and dancing), to walk twice a week and to s
  7. I was trying to think of a wow theme, and it just wasn't happening. So here we are. I'm just living my life, trying to level up in fitness as well as the rest of my life. I'm not sure how Baby Yoda fits in to my theme, but isn't he cute? Looking forward to the new year, the one change I would most like to make is in my morning routine. It is the constant thing that I feel like I really struggle in. I’ve done challenges, and developed a routine for a challenge, but then I easily drop into old habits. This year, I would like to establish a routine that enable me to say I am making th
  8. This year I'm going to continue with the acronym I developed in 2020...I will be modifying a few items regarding it though (because of course I am) Those that have been following for a while know that in 2019 I was doing really good hitting my goals, so I went back to see what I was doing then that was working so well. I've been more lax this year on the food aspect (thanks Covid) With D cooking her fair share making a detailed plan is a little more difficult, but that's only one meal a day every other week so it shouldn't derail me as much as I've been letting it. I've also been la
  9. [SOMEDAY IS TODAY] They drifted across a vast landscape. Directly below, stretching endlessly outwards in almost every direction, was a forest of the like they had never seen. Immense trees with impossibly thick, red barked trunks reached up towards the sky, deep green canopies spreading below the blazing might of two suns. Below, though not so far as to be called small, other canopies reached up with many hands. Some were broad leafed and fluttered in the light breeze, some were sharp, like needles, and some were narrow. It was impossible to put a name to every shade of green the
  10. My spine is broken as fuck and here I am with a slipped disc again only 6 months after surgery. I don't know how things are going to unfold in the next weeks, so its 4 goals a week, changing up things as necessary. *realizes she is old now and cries softly* but hey: week zero goals: build back and stomach muscles by doing bodyweight core workouts daily (as long as it doesnt make the pain worse). Experiment with what's possible. Don't sit for very long. find out whether to keep going with keto or whethe
  11. This isn't my first challenge, but this will be my first challenge that I will complete (I hope ). Im a gym owner in the Netherlands and I'm trying to train myself. I am having a really hard time doing my training so I thought to use this topic to get some training structurally. Main goal: One handed pullup! For a long time now I am pretty close to my one handed pullup. And I think it's time to get this hard skill in the books. If I can keep up my training towards this goal, then I should manage it in six weeks. So here we go! I will be posting the progressions that I'm using
  12. Stagnation is Death Annals of a Bladesinger A haunting melody weaves its way through the quiet forest. An alien in her homeland with a mind touched by the hand of darkness, the elven wizard hones her dangerous dance, ever vigilant, ever mindful. She practices her art not just for the protection of her people, but to soothe her tormented soul with the meditative, otherworldly whistle of bladesong. Journey to Bladesinger Master 2020 Stats: STR 10 || DEX 11 || CON 11 || INT 15 || WIS 16 || CHA 12 2020 Level: Bladesinger Apprentice Go
  13. I'm a gym owner in the Netherlands and ironically I have a hard time getting myself to train consistently. Last challenge I thought i'd see if posting on these forums would help me and it turns out that it really did! So i'm back for my second challenge Main goal: Practice and implement "the freeze" in movement. The freeze is a static position (usually hard and funky) which I found during my Breakdancing days. Those days are long gone and while I practice all kinds of movement, I never picked up the movements I was doing during these wild years ;). Man, I'm feeling old now!
  14. Part of me loves this time of year, and part of me dreads it. I love the cold, clear days, the colors of the leaves, and the crunching sound they make as I tromp on them. The shorter days, rainier weather, and the looming aspect of even shorter days tend to give me less energy, and tend to make me just want to hibernate. The best way I've found to conquer the hard part is to embrace it. I realize that in the spring and summer I have more energy, so I tend to stay up later ,and do more things in the evening. Fall is a time for coziness, reading,watching TV, gaming , or crafting in the evening.
  15. I haven't been active on here since 2017 and I think back then I only completed maybe 2 challenges. Since then I have let laziness and a near fatal fall over a year ago keep me from adequately taking care of myself, however, today I say NO MORE! It's time to get back to being serious about my health, even if the main motivator is that I recently started a job as a delivery driver for Amazon and end ever day feeling worse and worse (especially my knees, lower back, and shoulders). So without further ado here are my current goals. BIG PICTURE: Increase mobility in order
  16. I've got 7 more weeks to go, theoretically, it could be more or it could be less, and there are still some things I need to do to prepare for Wolvie's arrival, so a great part of the challenge will be focused on that. Goal 1. Prepare Wolvie's arrival. - Wash crib reducers ✅ - Wash clothes ✅ ✅ - Wash nappies ✅ ✅ ✅ ✅ - Assemble and attach crib to bed ✅ - Buy the few items still missing ✅ ✅ - Prepare hospital bag ✅ - Prepare questions for my next medical appointment ✅ - Finish writing my labor plan for the hospital (still need to collect some mo
  17. The ThenMorbidly obese, full-time nerd, soft creative artist type with a penchant for food and videogames. Little to no relationship with exercise until I had a health scare senior year of college, weighed in at 333 pounds and told me to consider surgery. Joined a gym, but didn't get around learning to eat properly until maybe two years later, when I started keto. Keto taught me to log and track, lost much weight, began some barbell 5x5 work and fuckarounditis at a local gym.The NowFormerly obese, part-time (ok still more or less full time) nerd, slightly hardened creative artist type with a p
  18. Hello there, maybe some of you can give me insights on how to gain the ability to control your body and become more flexible? In a sense of pole dancing, yoga, gymnastics, possibly parkour - it all seems so undoable to me and I'd love to have this controlled strength of gymnasts who can slowly lift their legs off the ground to a handstand or jump up from lying flat on their back. I think it might be a fallacy of mine: It all looks like you do not need a huge amount of sheer strength to do it. But maybe you do. Because usually gymnasts do not look that
  19. Dear Community, 2 years ago I came accross the article on Maya who performed aerial silks. I got very intrigued and I decided this week to take my 20 sec of courage and do a class. It was a disaster, I was unfit, I could lift myself and it was a horrible experience. I quit the training after the 2nd session, but I don't call it quit. I am really out of shape, and I would like advice on what I should train to be able to actually take a beginner class. If someone has any tips that could help me, I would really appreciate! Thanks !
  20. My favorite class to play in D&D is a rogue. My favorite book series is about an assassin. My favorite tropes in anime / fantasy / etc, are the sneaky, do good from the shadows types. One of my favorite game series is Assassins Creed. Assassins are relied on to work alone, but they have a strong network of people supporting them with info, details, contacts and everything else. And my at work gym is off limits until we're allowed to break the "Firewall" between the warehouse and front office so... more bodyweight than not for the time being! We're
  21. 27APR2020: 191.2Lbs - Fasting; 1.98mi run/walk (2min/3min intervals) 28APR2020: - Not fasting; 1.68mi walk w/ doggos 29APR2020: - Intermittent Fasting (16:8); 1.68mi run/walk (2min/3min intervals) --- Break in all attempts at everything, for no real reason --- 09MAY2020: 2.12 mi run, with warm up walk and cool down stretching afterwards 10MAY2020: 2.19 mi run, with warm up walk and cool down stretching afterwards (husband came out too!) 11MAY2020: Unsurprisingly, my legs are very sore; taking the hint and taking a break.
  22. After years in the wilderness (lifting weights in my local gym), undergoing countless horrifying ordeals (queuing for the one decent bench press, getting annoyed as the awesome gymnastics rings setup is used for crossfit classes), as the outside world burns I have returned to my spiritual home: The Guild of the Assassins. Whilst others may be lamenting their lack of a squat rack, the assassins know that all that one requires is the weight of their own body (plus maybe a pull-up bar and a few other bits of equipment) to maintain and even increase their strength. Solitary confinement
  23. RES

    RES: FEeD me

    Obligatory RES challenge disclaimer: So, the NF challenges are turning 10 years old, my time here just passed the 6 year mark...My first two years and 14 challenges were spent with the Adventurers where I was made an ambassador, then the guilds were reconfigured and the Rangers were a better fit for my goals and the leaders graciously accepted me as one of their own and I've been here ever since. During this time I've learned a lot, about myself and what works for me, and as I've stated previously the more important item of what doesn't work for me...There are many goal
  24. Alright @WolfDreamer called me back to join Nerdfitness for their 10th anniversary of the challenges. As someone whose life has been changed by what I read in Nerdfitness, articles by Steve Kamb, and completing in the challenges, it was only right that I compete. Since I am following WolfDreamer's lead (and since I LOVE ATLA), here's my setup: Air: Minimum of 10 Pranayma sessions (7-minutes) per week Fire: Minimum 15 rounds of shadowboxing Earth: Minimum 5 sessions (at least 30 minutes) of Ashtanga yoga Water: Drink at least 1 Liter of water a day
  25. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation In honor of Nerd Fitness’s 10th birthday, I thought I’d be nostalgic as well. So, for my 36th challenge here, I’m going back to the Warrior’s Guild to focus on strength training. It’s been over a year and a half since I was with the Warrior’s Guild and that challenge was not successful. The only one I’ve failed! I started here back in 2014, after having dropped weight and started a fitness routine on my own. However, with Nerd Fitness, I honed my focus and a
