James Coombs and the Weasley Challenge


Recommended Posts

So I was happily going about my business. Getting evil plans laid out and planning the founding of my little business empire when my Mum appears from nowhere with a pop and exclaims...

 

"James! You've got a letter! You're going to a boarding school for magic! You'd better get ready!"

 

"What?! But I'm a 28 year old man!"

 

"No you're not!"

 

***POOF***

 

"WHAT THE $%^&?!"

 

"Language young man! Now get ready, the train leaves in an hour!"

 

So yeah.... by the next day my 11 year old butt had been sorted into Slytherin. The next few months went by quickly and I'd started to pick up all this magic business. But it was still pretty weak. Most of us firsties couldn't lift much more than a feather!

 

But then Halloween came. Some clown had let a troll into the castle and I was sneaking out of the prefect's care to enact one of my plots, when I see these three Griffendorks corned by the troll in a bathroom, and I swear to merlin, one pulls out his wand and lifts the troll's club. HIS WHOLE CLUB! I was like… What the?! A few hours ago this guy couldn’t lift a feather and now he’s lifting a club that must weigh more than him!

 

Time to get some serious training on.

 

Three weeks of winggardium leviosa training followed by three weeks of quidditch practice.

 

———————————————————————————————————————

 

So, I’ve finished my exams and am getting ready to leave Shanghai, my residence of five years. This does mean leaving behind all my weightlifting gear which is a bummer and I’m not sure what I’m going to have available in Cyprus or the UK or how quickly I’ll be able to get it. This means adaptation, experimentation, and bodyweight exercises. 

 

So, this challenge will be a two part challenge, the first half will be:

 

Goal one - Train every other day for three weeks = 11 training sessions

 

Goal two - Eat three solid meals and one healthy snack every day = 21 days

 

Goal three - Stretch on rest days = 11 stretch sessions

 

Main goal will be, as always, put on 1.5kg of muscle from the start weigh in of the challenge.

 

The second half of the challenge will be figured out once I arrive in Cyprus and am better able to judge what’s available.

Ideal weight: 78kg | starting weight: 63.8kg
