Also, Seth stole my hammer and I want Mjölnir back. My power will be restored by the end of this challenge!

(see bonus pic here for reference
)

Goals:

Fitness

Deadlift: 1RM @ 475
STR +3

I had to have one of my goals centered around DLs....wouldn't have felt right otherwise. On my end of year goal of hitting 500lbs, I'm gonna push for this one. This number may be slightly adjusted at the end of the week. In my head, I was thinking I had this week to test out a starting 1RM, then next week to set goals. How wrong I was. I'll plan on testing out a 1RM on this either Wed or Fri to see if I can still hit 455...or possibly higher. I'll then adjust this accordingly. I want this one to push my limits in the end. This will eventually lead to me overtaking Book's 1RM, and if you're lurking from time to time Book....whatup heel! :-)

Pull-ups/Chin-ups/Push-ups: 12/15/45
STR +2 STA +1

Pull-ups were the one item I had to ding myself on for this last challenge. Even though I didn't hit a true 10 this past time, I'm still going to up this; as well as add more items. After the shuttle challenge, I discovered how beneficial body weight exercises were for me. Upping my pull-up goal to 12 and chin-up to 15 is a bit of a stretch, but I don't want this one to be easy at all. The push-ups should be obtainable. I originally had marked off 40 push-ups on my
, only to discover that just because I could do it over a year ago, I can't now. I have unchecked that box with the intent of re-checking it at the end of this challenge.

Mobility: 3 MWODs per week
DEX +3

Jumping on the mobility bandwagon that many warriors are doing. I hear its all the rage these days! Now time to figure out what specific goals I have in mind and to update later today. Stay tuned....and I'm back. So, having never done any of the MWODs, I figured I'd start light and aim for 3/week. I should be able to hit this on my 2 rest days a week plus one weekend day. Again, being new to this, I'm starting with the first one and will just go through each one on the site taking notes on what I probably need to focus more attention on. Done....got my DEX goal!

Diet

Diet Goal Placeholder - Dabbling with the idea of making this one a lean gains style goal, but undecided at this point.

Life

Stop buying people drinks!
WIS +2

Explanation time. I like to drink. Drinking makes me happy. I want my friends to be just as happy. I buy them drinks. My bank account yells at me the next day. I need to stop! In all honesty, this is something I need to put an end to. Walking up to order 7+ shots for a table does not help me hit my debt goals, and this happens all too much. The exceptions to this will be if I am buying someone a drink as a gesture to thank them for buying me a drink (even swap) or if I'm buying a lady a single drink, a date some drinks, etc; but not all ladies (friends + their friends, etc). This may seem like a simple goal, but it will be hard. I have to break this habit!

Payoff the TV...
WIS +1

Tacking this one on at the last minute since there is no point in having this payoff linger. It's not an interest accumulating debt since it's 0%, but there's really no reason not to just put this one out there to knock it out. I've discovered...if I list it as a goal, the guilt of not completing it is enough to force the payoff.

Photos:

I pulled the pics used at the end of my last challenge as my starting pics to post. Just add on a couple pounds in your head to adjust for this past weekend's worth of wedding eating and boozing...

Bonus pic is broken... guessing you stole back the hammer?

Gonna have to check when I get home.

Geez, you guys get to playing with one mystical object, and you break the internet. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.

I'm digging these goals, when you figure out a good DEX goal, let me know, my number's are sadly lacking. Good luck with the bar tab goal, that one could be a doozy.

The path to Swolehalla is paved with a lot of Swolehate, and you won't get there without being Swole of Spirit too.

Note to self: Drink with icedtrip before the end of the challenge.

Second note: Bonus pictures are the new Christmas.

^ this.

You definitely seem to 1. always be surrounded by pretty ladies with drinks (ah ha!) and 2. oot and aboot with said ladies. I can see how that would get a little rough on the wallet.

Third fitness goal: join us for some mobility! It seems to be the warrior sub challenge this time around..

Bring the thunder, for Asgard!!!! I feel you on buying drinks, Ive had my share of ridiculous tabs before

RAWR!!!

And yeah, some of my closed out tabs could make some people weep. Now sadly, some of those tabs were just me, but when I start looking around saying "Hey, what do you want? And you? And you? etc"; that's when it becomes a huge problem!

I second THIS!! Where's MY drink???

It never bothers me to be surrounded by more :) ....so, ladies, when the opportunity presents itself, first drink is definitely on me :) *buying drinks for the ladies...buying drinks for the ladies...woohoo*

Having just recently watched the South Park parody of Thor, I cannot resist saying: FOR STUFFING!!!!

YES! That was a good one! Love me some South Park!

Sweet goals! Hope to see you crush that Deadlift soon!

I'm aiming for it! Won't be satisfied until I see this: -|||||-------|||||- :)

BWAHAHAHA!!! Take that! :)

Well, ya know....one can easily go overboard...my bad! I'll take the heat on this one...

Nice mini transformation! You can make out the weight lost in the profile pic.

Also best of luck on the deadlift goal.

Thanks! Something tells me I'll always have some form of DL goal in my challenges....got to keep pressing forward!

I'll def let you know Max, and Laura....I'm seeing this trend and may have to cave and follow the mob. Time for a bit of research...

So, even though my "creep-dar" (creeper radar) is going off full-force,im pushing it to the back of my mind because I think it's awesome you look like so many people.

At least... I think it was you last challenge who had a list of famous look-a likes. At the time I thought you looked like someone but I couldn't place who. Until I saw you bday pic. You look like KU men's basketball head coach, Bill Self. Hell yeah!

And I'll just be forward since you know I couldn't possibly stalk you from way over here in flyover country. Bill Self is hot.

Rawr! ;)

Hahahahaha! Love the story. Very organized too, man. This challenge looks fantastic. :)

Thanks! The organization comes from a bit of OCD that occasionally comes out :)

I agree with the mobility goal! Dooo eeeeeeeeet!

Also - you'd better be buying me some drinks when I'm there! ;)

Looks like mobility will be my 3rd fitness goal...just gonna do the damn thing!

Of course I will get a drink for you! Now time to hop over to the DC thread to get something set up.

Yep, I'm the one that apparently has a lot of look-a-likes....HAHAHAH!

:redface: and what you did just now is give me a huge boost to my ego! Thanks!!! :redface:

Yeah, I caught that with my last thread. I haven't been able to figure it out. Does tapatalk support tables? Even if it doesn't, I have noticed that as soon as a table in introduced in a post, the remainder of the post's text vanishes, but pics tend to remain. I've done a small amount of googling and will continue to see what I can find, because it does bug me.

Awesome possum. I posted www.mobilitywod.com in my thread in response to you but here it is! It's a good place to start. I started at the very first video (which is the very last page) and slowly moved forward.

HA! We must be in sync right now since I just replied in your thread with:

"Watched some of those videos, and I'm in! Give me 400lbs+ set up for a DL, and I'm good....but this mobility stuff may kill me....HAHAH!"

Just added my 3rd Fitness Goal. Thanks Laura and others suggesting mobility for my DEX goal.

I've been doing the first video in my office this morning, after a couple of minutes of squatting my legs are going "ehhh this is wrong" then I stand up and they go "Ahhh nice" I did get weird looks from my boss for being squatted down behind my desk though.
