There's an inverse relationship to how excited you are that your car insurance went down to how boring you realize you are.

Challenge wrap up!

 

My overall goal on this challenge was to work on strength and put 10% on my big lifts. Well I tested my 1RM in Deadlift last night, and...

 

 

THAT'S RIGHT BUTTER NUGGET 225 POUNDS I OFFICIALLY CAN DEADLIFT MORE THAN I ACTUALLY WEIGH.

 

So my 1RM was 205 at the start, and I put a solid 20 pounds on that. Holy Moses! I still can't believe it myself. I did a slightly shorter warm-up routine like the one @Sam Ashen suggested which probably helped, and it was terrifyingly easy up through 215. 225 was hard, though. I'm not gonna lie. I was really glad I only had to do one rep. I wore my snazzy new knee sleeve. It does not have pandas.

 

I haven't don't the 1RM test on the prowler yet, but I started at 210 and I was doing 225 last week so I'm fairly sure I'll make that. I'll note it in the next challenge when I find out. I should take a day and just push the prowler over and over with higher weights, just for fun, until I'm pushing like 400 pounds and everyone in the gym is staring or my Achilles tendon snaps.

 

My OH Press is now #90 for 4 reps, up from #80. I never did do a 1RM test on that one.

 

So that covers the Specific, Measurable, and Achievable parts of the challenge. The other two parts were:

 

Accompanied: I was trying to find people to work out with, since I generally work out alone and the Mantis is currently wedded to his indoor bike trainer as he tries to win some patch for riding 9 hours on the trainer in one day. What a nut. Anyway, I found a women's cycling group that does group rides on Wednesdays, so I'm going to join them (assuming I can keep up) but I'm waiting until October 31st to join because it costs $40 for the year no matter when you join and the year flips over then. So if I join now I have to pay again in a month, which is silly.

 

I also found out that the November Project, which is a group that does free outdoor exercise sessions, FINALLY has a group in Atlanta! They have workouts Wednesday and Friday mornings (at 6:30 am, ouch) so I'm going to try and make one of those per week. that should be super fun. I only found out about it two days ago so I haven't started yet. 

 

I managed one "couples workout" with the boyfriend. We did a short bike ride.

 

Real Food: a work in progress, as always. I have given up soda, which gave me a headache for three days.

 

Taunting: Less than expected, but special thanks to @Emerald_Dragonfly , @TiffanyD and @Sam Ashen for wandering into Ranger-world with taunting and advice. Although the best taunting came from Rangers, which probably should be expected, with @Xena supplying the appropriate theme music. Shoot, I need to check on tiffanyD and make sure she got her power back after Irma.

 

So all in all a VERY successful challenge! And in addition I'm finding that keeping the majority of my gym work on strength instead of crossfit style cardio works better when combined with all the other stuff I do (biking, walking) and I'm not so completely tapped all the time. Very good adjustment.

 

Next challenge coming momentarily, it's fun...

Awesome PR!

 

I'll be curious what you think of November Project. I went to one workout in Boston. The group was mostly college-age or early 20's. I felt a little odd/old (both), but there were some people my age, and the group is VERY welcoming.

 

Yes, I have a feeling it will skew to a younger demographic, but I've read a lot about the original group (which I think was actually the Boston one) and trying to build a crossfit-style, "band of brothers" effect was one of the things they were going for. So I'm really interesed in that aspect of it.

Awesome PR!  also I will now be friending you on IG :D, Sorry for the lack of taunting this go around.  I will be here more often starting today as I am getting back to challenges myself, because I have been lazy and away for too long.

And got hit by a giant storm and had no power. I think you get a hall pass for that!
