This will be my second challenge on here but first with you guys (I was lurking last challenge and y'all seem awesome). Anyway on to the goals!

 

1) Follow the push-up program on hundredpushups.com

 

2) Run 3 missions a week on the 'Fit for Battle' app

 

3) at least 10 minutes of yoga every day (not strict)

 

4) HYDRATE at least 64 Oz. Of water daily

 

BONUS ROUND

I went to do day 1 of the hundred push-up program and found that I've gotten a lot weaker than I thought I had, barely got 5 in before my I couldn't do anymore.  So my new goal for zero week is to do at least fifteen pushups a day, just bust out a 2-3 here and there throughout the day.

Mix in some incline pushups too - hands on a chair/stool/table/countertop/etc - if you want to get some higher rep sets in.

So far I've only done the first mission, fighting a bunch of goblins. Basically you walk or run at a comfortable pace while listening to the story unfold and at key points you have to speed up, usually to run away or attack enemies.

Why yes I am.  The DM in my name stands for Dungeon Master.

Haha! Of course. I didn't even compute. I was too preoccupied with your picture. Haha. That's awesome. I love DnD. :)

I'm a huge fan of 'exercise snacks' and strongly advocate for this style.  I like the challenge and look forward to seeing how you progress.

Welcome to the assassins! So fit for battle sounds pretty similar to zombies run! but more dungeon-y?

It is very much like zombies run, however instead of collecting items to build up your base. You collect new outfits for your avatar.

Yes! Mittens the shield kitty!

 

 

 

Turns out pumping out a few push-ups and elevated push-ups throughout the day was extremely effective.  I goth through all of Day 1 on the hundred push-up program.

though I've found that it puts incredible strain on my wrists which isn't good.  So I'm going to start doing the 'ninja mobility' warm up from the 'Ninja Turtle Workout' and hopefully the wrist portion should help.

Does the app you're using only do runs or does it dose it do body weight stuff as well?
