CapN's Ranger/Bard Challenge


Recommended Posts

I do have a kettlebell, and the basic swing movement is almost identical. I got into clubs before I learned how to safely do more advanced maneuvers with kettlebells. I would say that they are definitely similar, as they are both awkward to wield so they force a lot of the stabilizer muscles to come into play. Both allow a mix of ballistic and grinding movements.

Remember, they are not toys, and you are not fighting zombies or robots or orc hordes or space aliens!!

*sigh* Way to take all the fun out of it... What about dinosaurs?

I think it is all right to pretend to fight dinosaurs! I guess it is ok to have fun with them. I just had to put the disclaimer in, so that no one gets hurt having too much fun! I sometimes feel like razing a village when swinging them.

Here are my goals for this challenge:

Goals this challenge:

Pretty much the same as the last couple of challenges.

1. Eat paleo/primal. Shouldn't be a problem, as my way of eating is pretty dialed in now.

2. Do my club swinging workout 3 times a week. I have formulated my starting routine, and will post the details for it the first time I do it this challenge.

3. Rangers need to be flexible, so I am going to continue to do my yoga DVD at least twice a week (!!!).

4. To satisfy my sub-class requirement, I am going to play my guitar as often as possible, but no less than three times a week for at least 30 minutes a session.

I have a couple of side quests that I hope to accomplish this challenge, but they are in secret rooms in the dungeon. If I am successful, I will post them for bonus points.

My results:

1. Pretty much nailed it, a couple of things here and there that were questionable. 90%

2. Hit every scheduled workout, and increased the duration. 100%

3. Yoga !!! I think I did this 3 times a week this challenge. 100%

4. I played a lot of guitar this month. I could have played more, however, I am really glad to have music back in my life. 90%

Side quests:

One of them was to set up my recording equipment. Completely failed.

Another was to quit smoking. I made an attempt, however as of now I am still a smoker. I will be making this a top priority for the next challenge.

There were a couple of other things that I wanted to do, however, I did not get around to doing these either.

Bonus goals: fail!

I did get one of the weekly challenges in, albeit a few days late. The Big Chill game was awesome, and I am part of a world record setting crowd, as verified by Guinness!

My starting weight was 217. Sunday, I was 211. Today I was 213. I lost at least 4 pounds this challenge.

Overall, I would say that I earned a solid B+.
