  1. Many origin stories spin a tale of humble beginnings, of loss or hopelessness and perhaps finding purpose in life again. History writes our mythologies. But not mine. There is no one left to carve words onto the pages and I have been at war for so long I have exhausted every memory. My story and sacrifices have faded to the transitory mists of time with no beginning in mind and no end in sight. For too long has a shadow and a doubt chased at the edge of my thoughts; the Void is never far away. Embracing Chaos has suited my needs thus far. Though dreadful in its means and terrible
  2. Hey, everyone! I'm curious what people are doing for their workouts. I only go to Muay Thai twice a week. What can I do to improve my stamina and strength? One routine I saw is run 2+ miles, jump rope 3 rounds, shadow box 2 rounds, then heavy bag 3 rounds. Should I try to fit in things like pushups, squats, situps, etc? I do my workouts at home, where I have a heavy bag, but I don't have a gym membership where I can lift weights or anything. Thanks, ninjas!
  3. As planned and promised, here is my month-long challenge for the month of April. Featuring my favorite Star Wars alien species: If those creepy looking aliens with breathing devices look somehow familiar but you can't quite recall, go back to when Palpatine pulls the trigger on the execution of Order 66... That'd be Plo Koon, shot down by his own Clone Troopers flying behind him So why Kel Dor? Why Star Wars? Well, in case you've missed it, NerdFitness' resident Jedi Master @EricMN has booked his flight tickets and will be visiting Sparta th
  4. I bought a Muay Thai bag. It's 6 ft, 150 lbs, unfilled. Does anyone have any tips, or instructions, or links for how to fill one? I've found a couple of videos, on YouTube, but I wanted to see if anyone, here, had any other good resources for this. Thanks, everyone!
  5. I just had my 5th class. It's super fun! However, I'm extremely out of shape. A positive thing, though, it's that I started this to motivate me to exercise, and it's working. There are a couple of things that I'm wanting to do, to get better in my classes: 1. Become Staminus Maximus, the god of stamina. 2. Inject Hulk serum into my limbs, to improve my strength. 3. Get better at eating the right things. Any tips for the kinds of exercise I would be doing, and food I should be eating, outside of class? For perspective, I haven't exercise for a full year, before
  6. Hello! I've just started Muay Thai, a few weeks ago. I was wondering if I could have some tips on strength training, mainly bodyweight stuff? This would be for striking power, but I also would like to just be a stronger person, in general. Help me, Strength-trainers Kenobi, etc., and so forth.
  7. I've always felt that, if I had a reason to be in shape, instead of just to look and feel better, it would be easier to motivate myself to exercise. So, I had my 5th Muay Thai class yesterday, and I freaking love it! I want to keep doing this, long term. I'm just a beginner, but I can already tell, I'm going to love this, long term.
  8. Jumping in mid-challenge. I'm going to throw down my basic goals for the month here and try not to fret about how disorganized I'm being (but secretly actually fretting about it). I had some progress during the last challenge (going to Muay Thai 3x a week now, yay!) and some setbacks (screwed up my glute med so I can't do half the stuff I want to do, boo!). So I'm just going to maintain as much as I can of what I was already doing, with an emphasis on actually, you know, *achieving* the other goals. Mostly that means prioritizing because I suck at that and end up chasing after what
  9. Emboldened by all the returning rebels, I'm putting myself in the game and coming back to play. I missed the structure and the accountability, but most of all, I've missed you lovely people. So hopefully, and slightly shamefacedly, I'm going to try - for the third time! - to finish my last challenge. A few tweaks for the new goings-on and priorities in my life, but mostly the same. I'll include the original challenge below in a spoiler, but here's the basics: Exercise: Muay Thai 3x/week. One of the changes that happened this year is that @Bighara and I switched from our schoo
  10. Nak here This is my second challenge and the first one I'm posting on the Monk topic; if I get lazy shame me into being not so lazy. If anyone's interested my discipline is Muay Thai. Anyway, on with the challenge. Goal 1: All eight limbs Last challenge and the break between that and this one were the opportunity for me to rebuild the fundamental skills of Muay Thai after a year of being lazy with inconsistent training. My first goal is to continue to develop those skills to reach and surpass my previous level. The best way to do this is through consisten
  11. Last we left our hero, he was wandering a swamp searching for a new shard of the crystal. "Man, what's with this place!? I feel like I've been stuck in one spot for days! I think I better take a breather over here." Red builds a small fire and tries to observe his surroundings. "The crystal hasn't changed it's brightness in a while. I wonder if I'm making any progress in this swamp." After a short rest, Red decides to continue walking. The fog continues to make his body feel weaker and stiffer, yet, he knows he must press on. He then stumbles upon a peculia
  12. This will be my first challenge. The time frame is actually close to perfect. I'm traveling to Europe for the first time on the 19th of May. I guess I'll start two days early and end two days early. I am 5'10" (177.8 cm) and weigh 260 lbs. (117.934 kg.). I am overweight and I feel that my health is greatly suffering. My goal weight is probably to be somewhere around 180-190 lbs. I plan to accomplish this goal over time and definitely not by the end of this challenge. I plan to lift weighs, run, do some Jiu-Jitsu, and eat right. There's a Jiu-Jitsu tournament in August, and
  13. Man already this year is passing by fast! We have another awesome challenge coming up! I am BlackTezca, GIF queen extraordinaire and I had a rough last year. You can find all my lovely details from when I first arrived in space within From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! I have also been training for galactic defending in BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards A Much Better Year and started making my progress to recover from my Eclipse moment in BlackTezca's 15th Trial: An Artsy Geeky Amazon Survives Her Eclipse. That was a hard recent moment in my life that has not only left some scars, but could h
  14. I'm Lieutenant Dan. Fuck you 2016. Woo...it is a new year. A brand new spanking year that I desperately need. I have been out for the forums quite a bit last year for one main reason! Quick reminder for all of you folks who have yet to meet the Queen of Gifs; I am BlackTezca and I first joined the Rebellion back in 2014! I started out with my very first post in From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! I also started a new battle log for the year titled BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards A Much Better Year (We all need a much better year). I had a lovely challenge during my Golden age in
  15. Hi everyone! I'm part of the Rising Heroes program and I'm following the 4 week challenges too. I love finding like-minded people for encouragement, inspiration, resources, ideas and humor! I'm 44 and run an MMA and fitness gym. I've been boxing and practicing Muay Thai for years, and I'm a blue belt in Jiu Jitsu. I lift and do conditioning too with the goals of cross training and aging with strength and grace. As for leveling up.... I have too many directions I want to go, gotta narrow it down! I look forward to getting to know others here!

    Wulf56 Round 2

    A little late to posting my round 2 challenge, but ive atleast been keeping up the training and eating so. This challenge will be based on mixing it up. I have a nasty habit of doing the same workout over and over until i become stagnant and plateau. Last challenge i did good with my diet and training regularly but now its time to go to the next level. Ive been on a dragon ball kick here lately so ill theme this around dragon ball super to keep me motivated. Diet Eat a vegetable with one meal every day keeping cheat food to only one cheat meal a week. Fitness

    Wulf56 Debut

    First time on here. Looking for some extra motivation. Ive been training martial arts for over 4 years and strength training for longer. I keep falling in and out of motivation to keep it all up. My goal is to lose atleast 5 lbs this month, Move up to the next stage in my current strength training program, and be better about keeping up with my diet all so i can greatly improve my skills as a martial artist. Kind of a simple post but i dont usually do the whole forum thing. I appreciate any and all motivation. Thanks everyone! Diet (pick two) Eat a vegetable with one me
  18. I'm kinda interested in picking up a martial art to do during the weekend on my off day. Some info about me: I recently started working out. (About two weeks ago) I am a student. Female 5"0' ~43kg What martial arts would you guys recommend? I've never done any sort of martial art before. Thanks for reading!
  19. Back with the Monks for another round and after quite a while, I will be doing *gasp* a theme again after a very long while. Last challenge I had a goal of catching up with Lucha Underground before the premiere of Season 3 in September 7th. Been seriously addicted to that thing since I discovered it, so it makes absolute sense to use it as my theme. I also had a goal of keeping up with my fantasy wrestling blog of HWA, which led me into getting back into Total Extreme Wrestling. TEW05 is freeware but there have been several newer (and better) versions since, so I have decided to use them as a
  20. It still feels like everything is moving so fast! Hard to keep up with making my challenges! However I am doing my best to kickass and bring myself into good habits, good routines and of course, good on leveling up! NOTHING CAN'T STOP THE UNSTOPPABLE FORCE OF UNSTOPPABLE AWESOMENESS THAT I AM!!! I began studying in the way of awesome heroics over a year and a half ago and introduce myself to my class in From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! Not only that, but I often keep detailed reports and status on the villains that plague my journey to fitness and my progress towards bec
  21. Hey everyone, hope you're training hard! My name is Keith, and I was looking for some martial arts forums like this to get people's opinions on Muay Thai, its benefits, the mentality of a Nak Muay, and what it's like to train in Thailand. I've done my first blog post for Khongsittha Muay Thai. It's about the main reasons why I train Muay Thai in Thailand. You can find it here: http://www.kstmuaythai.com/en/5-ways-muay-thai-camp-thailand-change-life/ I just recently finished a fight camp in July with them and it was incredible. Let me know if you guys think it's necessar
  22. "After 4 months of pointless loot grinding at work, finally the summer ended and this Vegan Monk has time and power to train and develop." Goal 1: (Soul) Start the day in a positive way. Wake up at 7AM sharp. Glass of water. Stretch for a few minutes. Meditate for half an hour. Goal 2: (Mind) The mind is a tool - to expand it is cool. Read and highlight 4 books. Goal 3: (Body) Train 5 times per week. This includes Muay Thai, Yoga, Running, Cycling and Calisthenics. Life Goal: Money - an illusion made by human hand, yet to live
  23. LET'S KICK SOME ASS!!! It has been a fun return so far! Returning to working out and Muay Thai has been great. Tracking is...well it's tracking and I do need to figure out tweaks to my diet, but having that habit again is great! Also doing art again! My muse has returned!! The last challenge just kicked so much ass so I wanted to make sure I kept the awesome train going! As most of you may remembered, I first sought out my NerdFitness training about...one over a year and half ago and brought myself to this gym in my introductory From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! threa
  24. I've teased a challenge with the Monks for a while, so here it is at last. Unlike most of my challenges, this will feature no theme and goals will be more like a bucket list of stuff that must be taken care of by the end of the challenge. Nutrition, workout and other stuff will still be monitored on my Battle Log. Let's get to it. Muay Thai Another thing I've talked about for a while and the main reason I'm Monk-ing (this is now a word) this round. It's finally time I took the step towards the dojo next to my home. It's closed for the summer right now, but I'm keeping an eye o
  25. I'm BACK BITCHES! I had to take a bit of a break. See a lot of stuff was going on with work has I have whined about before and as some of you may know, I have been hit with major fatigue and continuous low-level nausea due to the success of the cloning project! The experiment was a success!! Which presented itself with its' own challenges. Now that I am adjusted I am also ready to go on my own adventure! I started out from humble roots in my introduction From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel!, did a few side quests and explored some back alleys in BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards
