  1. Welcome to my challenge thread. I'm not new to Nerd Fitness. If you're a Level 1, then I'm your Guild Leader. My 4-week challenge thread is posted in this Level 1 subforum as an example, in the hope that you seeing how I format and organize my challenge 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. The pay is non-existent, but the benefit package is fantastic and calls me "Daddy." For the first part of this year, my main fitness drive was weightloss. I dropped 19+ lbs in January's challenge. I dropped another 7+ lbs in the February-March challenge. Then illness struck during the March-April challenge. After it passed, I ended up kind of spinning my wheels. I'm not the type of person who likes getting stuck. I recognized that I simply didn't feel like being hungry anymore at that time. So dieting down was out the window for a month. Instead, I shifted gears and spent the previous challenge month learning to eat and train like The Rock! It was fun. It was enlightening. Then I vacationed in Florida for a week and put on 7 lbs of fat. I'm mentally ready to do a cut again, so I'm shifting gears back to doing that. I have a longterm goal of significantly trimming down this year, and the first couple of weeks of this challenge will be dedicated to making strong progress toward that longterm goal. My Main Quest for this challenge is to... Get my bodyweight below 185 lbs. My weight as of this morning was 197.2 lbs. I don't like dieting for long periods. It makes me feel blah. So I'm not doing it anymore. I'm very good at losing weight quickly. Get in, cut hard, get out. My intention this challenge is to get below 185 as fast as reasonably possible. Ideally, in about two weeks of cutting. Then I'll bring my calories back up to maintenance level, or maybe just a little above maintenance, and chill there for the rest of the challenge so my hormones can stabilize before cutting again. My Support Quests for this challenge are to... Complete daily cardio. At least 500 calories burned via cardio each day. Restrict calories. My diet will probably vary from day to day, but I'll be trying to eat somewhere in the vicinity of 2000 calorie intake by restricting my fats and carbs. Protein will stay high. Train like The Rock. Following on the heels of my previous Challenge, I'll be sticking with a high volume bodypart split. This is still very much an experiment for me, so I may make changes to it on-the-fly over the next few weeks. But for now my plan is to do an 8 day rotation: DAY 1: upperbody push (chest focus) DAY 2: legs DAY 3: upperbody pull DAY 4: rest (cardio only) DAY 5: upperbody push (shoulders focus) DAY 6: legs 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. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to post them. Your comments are appreciated, and your questions are welcome.
  2. Welcome to my challenge thread. I'm not new to Nerd Fitness. If you're a Level 1, then I'm your Guild Leader. My 4-week challenge thread is posted in this Level 1 subforum as an example, in the hope that you seeing how I format and organize my challenge 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 almost-3 yrs old daughter. Which is the Best. Job. Ever. The pay is non-existent, but the benefit package is fantastic and calls me "Daddy." For the past few months my main fitness drive has been weightloss. I dropped 19+ lbs in January's challenge. I dropped another 7+ lbs in the February-March challenge. Then illness struck during the March-April challenge. After it passed, I ended up kind of spinning my wheels. I'm not the type of person who likes getting stuck. I recognized that I simply don't feel like being hungry right now. So dieting down via low calories is out the window for the time being. Instead, I'm going to shift gears and spend some time eating well and working hard. My Main Quest presently is to... Eat and Train like "The Rock" My Support Quests for this challenge are to... Cardio like The Rock. 45 minutes to 1 hour a day on my treadmill and/or exercise bike. Lift like The Rock. Info for his typical workout routines is all over the internet. I'll post my daily training anyway, for public accountability, so you'll see the exercises in my daily updates. Eat like The Rock. A couple of provisos here. DJ is 6'5" and 260 lbs. I'm significantly smaller at 5'9" and under 200. I'll be eating like the Rock, but not identical to him. I'll have big meals like he does, but I won't eat after a meal until I'm hungry again. I'm not going to force-feed myself if I'm not hungry. That would just lead to me being uncomfortable and pukey. So while my meals may be big, I'll probably eat fewer meals per day than he does. I'm not setting a number on that. I'll be listening to my body. When it's hungry, I'll eat. When it isn't, I won't. Secondly, I'm not rich. I'm substituting a few things in the Rock's diet to bring the cost of his food down into my affordability range. Instead of pricey fish, I'll be relying on good ol' cheap chicken breast. And when I have steak, I'll be using cheaper cuts like Eye of Round. With regard to exercise, I don't have access to all the equipment that he has. But I want to keep the overall work volume in the gym the same as he does. So when he's got exercises that require equipment that I don't have, I'll be doing my best to sub in similar exercises. If you got this far, thank you very much 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.
