Rebirth


Buff Brogan

Recommended Posts

I'm here to reintroduce myself to NF. you guys have never left me. a few of you went above and beyond to reach out and pull me back(you know who you are) and i can't thank you enough. 

 

I can only assume most of you will either A) have no clue who i am b) not remember who I am C) never interacted with me before. With all that said, i welcome you all to join me on my journey. 

 

i feel like the title is fitting considering how long i've been away. i joined NF in 2014, but have taken roughly a 4 year break from this community. I've had a lot of ups and downs and in the last couple months just started getting back into fitness. what have i been up to?

 

in August i did an 8 mile GORUCK event and in September i completed a 6 mile Savage Race with a pulled groin(injury from playing ultimate frisbee in the mud) and virtually no training. to say it was difficult is an understatement, and full transparency, i was not able to complete ever obstacle. but goddamn it, i didn't quit. Deep down, that's who i am. i don't quit. which is why i'm back. i've missed this place, and everyone in it. I love you all. with that said, let's get on with the show.

Rebirth

Goal 1: Hit the Gym

in approx 2 weeks, i'll be following Kris Gethin's 4 weeks to shred. it's a crazy intense program. https://www.kagedmuscle.com/blogs/4-weeks-2-shred/4w2s-overview-program

until then, i must hit the gym at least 3 days a week. once the program begins, i'll be in the gym 4 days a week, and doing cardio 7 days a week. i will allow myself to skip 1 day of cardio for recovery if necessary, but no lifting days can be missed.

 

Goal 2: Feed the beast

the 4 weeks to shred program includes a diet. this is pass fail. during the program, i am allowed 0 cheat meals. for the next 2 weeks, i'm allowed to only cheat on the weekends. 

 

Goal 3: Check in

this is simple. i check in to NF at least 3 days a week. no time requirements for how long i need to be on. but i need to give support equally that i receive. You guys are beyond supportive and definitely give that little something extra that is often needed to succeed. i need that, but i also have to give back to others. 

 

stats: Stats will be updated and compared at the end of the challenge.
