Anyone interested in taking a journey with me? Would love to have a Monk's perspective on how this goes. I will be doing this Journey in addition to my normal training.

Huh. This looks interesting. I'd be down!

OH, I'm so in with this. Also, doing it in addition to my normal training. When do we start?

Suppose I should have replied to this... focusing on whole-body strength, Big Three exercises as per my challenge (Deadlift, Overhead Press, Bench Press) and getting my numbers up. And after some quick googling, calisthenics at home. 

The cancer was aggressive, but the chemotherapy was aggressive, as well.

There was aggression on both sides.

I volunteer as tribute for hip mobility. It's a part of my challenge this go around, and by the pain when I try to stretch them even a little, I really need to do more of it. :(

Awesome! 

 

I'll figure out what we need to do and maybe we can start on Monday?

Oi, Thrillho! I strength-trained, even though I didn't feel like it. Hope you did the same. (only hopefully you felt like it).

And I did! 3x last week, and again this morning.  OH MAN THE ARMS THEY BURNS.
