Welcome to my challenge! I'm not new to Nerd Fitness. If you're a Level 1, then I'm your Guild Leader. My challenge thread is posted in this Level 1 subforum to serve as an example of a way to format and organize a challenge, in the hopes that seeing how I do it might help give you ideas for your own. About Me My Muggle name is Chris. I'm a 41 yr old semi-retired guy happily at home being the primary caregiver for my 3 yrs old daughter. Which is the Best Job Ever! There's no pay, but the benefit package is adorable and calls me "Daddy." Most of my time each day is invested with her. As such, I've taken inspiration from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's early morning workouts, by building the habit of waking up in the early morning (a couple of hours before my daughter normally wakes up) so that I can ensure I get my exercise done each day. My Main Quest for this challenge is to... Get my bodyweight below 180 lbs. As of the end of the the previous challenge (yesterday), I weigh roughly 188 lbs. So we're going for a drop of 8 lbs over the next 5 weeks. My Support Quests that will help me reach that goal are to... Complete daily cardio. At least 500 calories burned via cardio each day. Restrict calories. My diet will vary from day to day, but I'll be trying to eat in the vicinity of 2000 calories. Protein will stay high. Train like The Rock. Inspired by -- but not identical to -- Dwayne Johnson's typical exercise routines, I'm doing a bodypart split schedule with relatively high exercise volume. I created an 8-day rotation for myself: DAY 1: chest DAY 2: legs [quads focus] DAY 3: upperbody pull / back DAY 4: rest (cardio only) DAY 5: shoulders DAY 6: legs [hamstrings/glutes focus] DAY 7: arms & abs DAY 8: rest (cardio only) repeat Thank you for reading. I'd be delighted if you continued to visit my challenge thread, and kept me company throughout this month as I continue along my journey.
