Grandkai Goes Wick

john-wick-3-1024x576.jpg

 

 

John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about.

 

Last challenged i did a respawn here in the forums and with fitness, habits, nutrition. Despite having a decent 2 weeks challenge i need more focus on my goals, commitment to not be distracted with videogames & sheer will to succeed in my challenge.

 

FOCUS: Don't be distracted by videogames until my task for the day are complete. These task are the following:
- Working out;

- Pomodoro Cleaning;

- Shopping (if needed);

- Making meals for the week

This one is important to me because the last weeks i went straight to my console to play games instead of making sure my apartment is clean which resulted in a dirty apartment. And then only cleaned when i had no clean dishes. NEVER again! Games are fun but they don't decide my life.

COMMITMENT: Workout every other day. 

I bought the Rings & Handstand Super Pack here on Nerd Fitness. I'm going to alternate between Rings & the Handstand workout. For example: Monday Rings with Bodyweight, Tuesday Off, Wednesday Handstand, Thursday OFF, Friday Rings and so on...depending if i get my rings on Monday or it will the other way around. And once i get more used to all the exercises i will probably do both Rings & Handstand in the same workout but thats for later. Now i want to get back into the routine of working out.
Besides the Rings/Handstand stuff i'm going to do basic Bodyweight stuff (push-ups, pull-/chin-ups, squats, planks) to become stronger.

SHEER WILL: Update every day

Doesnt matter when i update, no matter what shift im doing i will update here everyday as much or as little there is to tell.

100% Gaming Goal: Deus Ex Mankind Divided

I used to do 100% gaming goals ever since i got inspired by a old friend ( @Lilmissbri, she does on PS4 and i do on Xbox :D ). This challenge i'm going to do my best to 100% Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Who knows, maybe ill even stream it (the time between my last REAL challenge here and now i started streaming a bit on Twitch, but i had to drop it because i had a period where i just had no energy for it. Now i have some more energy and i want to try and start streaming again).

Also: i get the same vibe with these 2. Looking like a Gentleman & being deadly when pissed off.

 

 

And to get in the whole John Wick theme even more, one of the best, maybe even THE best scene's of the movie.

That is one very HARD goal!

I have only done 1 day on the handstands which invols wrist mobility. Tomorrow or wednesday the rings are being delivered. But i saw it involved 45 degrees rows. And i will update my progress with Rings & Handstand in here.

Yeah its not great but sometimes you have to choose when you have your own apartement. There’s still enough time to game tho.

Following. I love the "looking like a gentlemen but deadly when pissed off." Definitely a goal to strive for.

Yay, welcome back.

Week 1, Day 1

A good start of the challenge. Woke up after my nightshift and immediately did my morning routine (#5 minute flow, 30 minutes read, breakfast). After that i had an hour before my workout and decided to watch a bit of Twitch. No gaming myself so far in the day. Then got to my workout:

Did Wrist Mobility & Quadruped Rocking. I liked the Wrist Mobility exercises and will probably add them to my #5 Minute Flow as a little bit more mobility. Quadruped Rocking felt the same except that i had to get used to were my weight is. After that i did push-ups, chin-ups & squats.

After that it was time for Pomodoro Cleaning & 100% gaming. Here i started with gaming. Did the first mission of Deus Ex Mankind Divided with 2 youtube guides (one for all the achievements in order of the story & one for the stealthiest route). And did a basic cleaning of the apartment (dishes, cleaning tables and cleaning the toilet).

 

Overall a good start of the week and the challenge. Tomorrow i have no workout planned so the extra hour i have i'm going to get some groceries.

Week 1, Day 2

Today was a rest day. But i got my rings in and immediately tried them out on my pull-up/dip station i have at home. I was a bit afraid that while doing rows the whole thing might tip over. But after looking in the Rings Faq i see the mentioned being more in the center of gravity of the station, so i moved the station a bit from the wall and no more worries of tipping over. Just need to see if it stays sturdy when i remove the dip bars....

Didnt clean or do my 100% game :( was distracted while reading a online comic. Tomorrow ill ditch the hour break between morning routine & workout and start earlier with my workout and earlier with my Pomodoro Cleaning & 100% gaming.

Week 1, Day 3

Got my first workout in with Rings. And it was interesting, i did both the Rows & the Straight Arms Support for this workout. Rings felt easy and because of me kinda needing to be near the center of my pull-up station i was starting with the 30 degrees angle i already nailed 1 or 2 levels? (need to check it out). The straight arm support was doable for the first level, had a bit of trouble of finding my balance at the start but the third set i got it. 
Now i only need to see if my pullup station is strong enough when i remove the dip bars (ill try to post a pic later today of my pullup station). 

Also did some more Handstand wrist mobility and will probably take more time on those to really give my wrist more mobility before i move on to the next level.

 

I cleaned & 100% gamed. Didnt progress a lot in the story because i was trying to get a certain achievement which i had to do stealthily (like a assassin ;) ) and had to re-do it a few times.

 

Not a lot has happened besides that...

Those things are deadly... they will kill hours at a time without you even noticing. How do you like the rings?

The rings are interesting, but already feel that they will be great for follow-up workouts

Sadly, my doorway isn't wide enough to do a full turnout for straight-arm support, but even with half turn-out, that is tough. Been at it for a few weeks, and can do 2x15 seconds, but shaking like a leaf the whole time. Looking forward to pics of the station.

Week 1, Day 4 till Day 7 + Week 2, Day 1

Was quite tired the last few days from my nightshift and thus i barely updated here. But the workouts are still going good, right now on Lvl 2 with Rings but still keeping it at Lvl 1 with Handstand since my wrist mobility is not that great yet.

Missed 1 day (yesterday) but made up for it today.
 

Dont have a lot more to tell right now. Spent the weekend playing a bunch of Destiny 2.

 

Here is my workout station, a pull-up/dip station with rings added. If i have time this week ill try to get the dipbars off and see if it stays strong:
