Let's keep this challenge a bit simple this time around too. I'm coming off of my powerlifting meet this past weekend and starting the slow ramp-up to gymnastics season. I want to be a bit more deliberate this time around to make sure I get in good shape without compromising myself with injuries. My first gymnastics meet isn't until December 8 (and we are usually about 60% ready by December) so I'm not in a big rush to go all out just yet. My stamina is in a bad place, so I'm going to add that in to get started. The pulling goal is because I've been neglecting them all year and I think I might be back in a place where they'll be helpful to bring back into my routine. House decluttering is because now that it's getting cooler outside, I'll be home more and having so much STUFF in my field of view stresses me out. Heart rate raiser Run stairs or go for a jog (or other cardio activity) 1x per week Don't fall to your death Chin-ups or pull-ups 2x per week Exorcise the house Throw away clutter from one room per week (bedroom, bathroom, office, and kitchen)
I really, REALLY, want to be able to do gymnastics and parkour. A little backstory, I used to be in gymnastics but it was only for two years. I really loved it though and wished I could've stayed longer. That was when I was 12 and now I'm 27 and a mother. I know I need to lose a lot of weight and train in body weight exercises as well as bring my flexibility back up. But my worry is, I completely fractured my ankle when I was 18. I jumped from a tree because I was stuck and couldn't get down. I ended up getting surgery and now have two plates and six screws in my left ankle. On top of that I've noticed my joints haven't been as strong as they used to. I know that could be because I'm 5'8" and 236 pounds. Am I OK to learn gymnastics and parkour still? And is there ways I can improve my bone density?
Hi, I'm Raptron. I do stuff like gymnastics, lifting weights, drinking cocktails, making cakes, running around sometimes... and I HAVE A POWERLIFTING MEET ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13. So I guess this conveniently scheduled challenge will be all about that. I've got a SINGLET to wear and a place to wear it -- though I do want to alter it and/or buy a new one because the one I used for my last powerlifting meet is too tight on my thighs. Oh, so very tight on my thighs. What am I going to do about it? 1. Do workouts 2. Do pec mobilization "And season?", you ask. "What season?" Well our new gymnastics team leotards also just arrived and the first meet there is December 8 (unless we go to some Virginia Tech meet, but ha). THE SEASON OF SPANDEX. Plus, Halloween's also coming up and there's usually spandex involved... I don't know. I can't think of a theme. Or other goals. But I'm here!
