Kyliewyotie Presents His 5 Deadly Venoms


Kyliewyotie

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody.

 

I am currently out of town for work, its going to be a rough one.

Some of you may remember that not to long ago I was working long days with only 1 day off for about 3 months.

Well I had some time back to normal, and got sent off to help out a different facility.

I'm in jersey, doing 16 hour days for 10 days.

 

Ok so my gripping is done, please forgive my complaining lol.

 

I will be home on Tuesday the 24th, and plan that to be the real start of my challenge.  In the mean time I am just trying to make sure I don't loose the marbles I have left. (I do have a plan so I don't stray to far while on my trip)

 

As the tittle hints to, my goals deal with the number 5, why? Because I love old Kung Fu movies, and 5 Deadly Venoms is one of my favorites, and because its as high as I can count without using 2 hands.  But mostly because I will have 5 active weeks of this challenge.

Goal 1 - Lose 5 lbs

Method: Eat less than 13510 calories a week.  That works out to 1930 a day.

I plan to measure weekly, so that if I want to splurge on the weekend I can earn it during the week.

I went over my dailies on the weekends last time, and I think this method will hold me accountable to make that up.

I have had success using myfitness pal, I used it to calculate how much I need to eat to lose 1lb a week.

I didn't input exercise, so that will be bonus towards the loss.

Goal 2 - Increase lifts by 5%

Method: I have been using a modified strong lifts program, I plan to stick to it.

My buddy Tinkerer did over 30% last challenge, I like the idea of gaining a %!

I don't think I could manage more than 5% the numbers start to get very high.

Here is the white board I use to track my progress.

Squat + 12lb (going to have to make that 12.5)

Bench + 8.5 (10)

Rows + 7 (7.5)

Press + 5.75 (7.5)

DL + 13.5 (15)

 

Also for good measure I will be upping my daily step goal by 5% ---> 10500

 

I feel these are realistic.

 

Goal 3 - 5 sessions of cardio (yuck)

My Stamina is my lowest stat for a reason....

I got a heart rate monitor, and as a step in the right direction I want to complete 5 sessions of cardio where I keep my heart rate in my target zone for > 20 mins.

Life Goal - Lean video editing

I have some cool hobbies, and I own a gopro, and all my videos looks like crap...

I would like to learn some of the basics of video editing, cutting scenes together, music, etc.

Any pointers would be a great help here guys.

I have yet to even googled the subject.

Its just something I have always wished I knew, so lets go learn it! or as much as possible in 5 weeks.

I will post a video at the end, expect it to have guns, jeeps, and dogs in it.  You know all the cool stuff.

 

 

 

I wrote this whole thing in 2-4 min chunks, in between crane lifts so hopefully it is somewhat coherent.

Thanks also to Tink for reminding me to get my challenge posted!

Nice goals!

 

Video editing is cool! I'm actually venturing into video production and editing for work. Starting from square one. So when you learn all the things, send them my way. Don't know if you want to spend the money, but I've heard Lynda.com is a great way to find trainings on all things video (among many other things). Luckily, my work will pay for a subscription.

There you are!! I was getting worried you weren't going to have a challenge this time.

Great goals and good luck surviving those 16-hour days. At least being sent on jobs like that means your company thinks you're useful. Now if only something like a raise came with that...

Wishing you the best!

Thank you for thinking of me!  

 

Luckily I am very well compensated, I'm just not used to having 4 months of craziness almost in a row.  All good thou, I do get a perverse type of pleasure from completing some pretty amazing projects.  lots of heights, and heavy lifts on this job.  Also no elevator so I climbed a total of 63 flights of stairs, and walked 26k steps, yesterday.  At least its not 115 degrees like back home :playful:

That is my wife's motivational message for me lol.

 

Thanks dood, I will wait to see how "into" i get.  I plan to start with some video tutorials when I get home.  I am sure I will get overwhelmed if I'm careful.

Looks good, Sir! Glad you'll be around for another one of these. Your encouragement has been great to have in the past.

 

Also, to be fair on the increase I didn't increase the weight on any of the percentage goals. Just reps. Your 5% goal sounds like a good one, achievable but a challenge nonetheless.

 

What target heart rate are you shooting for with the cardio? (Not the actual BPM but what body systemare you trying to train?)

Well, I'm a bit ashamed to say that I have no idea what your talking about.  It feels like electrical classes all over again....

 

When I tested out my heart rate monitor, the "smart" program had me aiming for like 140 ish I think.

Not sure if that is what you meant.

Meh, I barely know what I'm talking about. The book I got on training for alpine climbs (although this part is mostly on endurance/general training) breaks HRs into 6 zones:

  • Recovery - Less that 55% of max HR - Used to speed recovery from other exercise like strength training
  • Zone 1 - 55% to 75% of max HR - Used to develop base aerobic fitness
  • Zone 2 - 75% to 80% - Not very helpful
  • Zone 3 - 80% to 90% - "fun and hard" - used to compliment zone 1 work to improve aerobic pathways
  • Zone 4 - 90% to 95% - anaerobic and used for interval training sometimes, can be detrimental to aerobic fitness
  • Zone 5 - 95% + of max HR - can be used to add power (i.e. strength training)

The book also says to check you max HR you should run uphill for 2 mins, sprinting the last 20 seconds. I haven't been able to try that due to the leg but it sounds fun (and "sciencey" to be using a HR monitor).

Hey! way to work with your schedule this challenge, I get the same curve ball thrown my way the last 2 weeks of the challenge.

This sounds like it will be an epic video :)

 

What heart rate monitor did you get?

Good news everyone.

 

I flew home for 12 hours yesterday to go to the doc with my wife.

We have girl on the way!  All testing shows thing to be ontrack and healthy!!!

 

My wife and mom are planning a girly starwars themed nursery!   pretty stoked about it!

 

While home I got in a str training session, so I don't go a whole week without one.

 

I'm back in jersey now, and back on my crazy work schedule/routine.

Wizerscises in full effect, morning body weight routine in the hotel, walking (a crap load.)  and just trying to eat ok.

Be back home Tuesday.

Ok,  So I'm still away from home...

 

I actively doing my don't stray to far stuffs.

Walking a crap ton (work evolves a million stairs and large facility.) 

Wizerscies in full effect, adding lunges, thanks to the mini challenge.

 

I bought a bunch of protein bars, while not something I usually use.  They are an easy way to keep track of my calorie content, and easy to keep in my bag or pocket.

 

I will be home late monday night!  can't wait!

 

Also this mini challenge is quite fun.  It has been to follow the friendly competition between houses.

Plus I'm teamed up with EG! and Tony

 

Go team stark.
