Weapons/Shields Team (Assassins Mini Challenge)


starsapart

Recommended Posts

This is an easy one for me this week as I literally just joined a gym. Leveling up from BBWW to barbell training!

 

This, yesterday I did my first ever barbell Squats and Presses and my first Deadlifts in years.

 

So, actual numbers (KGs):

 

Squat

20x5x3

30x5x1

40x2x1

 

Press

20x5x3

30x5x3

 

Deadlift

40x5x3

(I had to use two 10 plates in order to get the correct height)

 

As you can see I was taking it pretty easy as I was a total total noob and I want to ensure I get the form right, so I will be going back over the chapters in Starting Strength and next gym day I will also record for form. 

 

Going off to add these to the spreadsheet :)

Question... Do I add a new entry for each entry on the spreadsheet, or just update my one entry each time?

 

Two things!

 

One: form check video has to be a bodyweight exercise.... not barbell, sorry!  I say this with sympathy, as I am a huge barbell fan as well, but there will be more people able to form check you if you stick to bodyweight, so please do for the bonus points (but carry on with weights for your PRs!!!)

 

Two: New post each time, please.  It helps us keep track.

There must be a forum around here somewhere to check form.

 

 

There is a form check forum in the body weight section.   You can also post a vid in this thread to earn team points :)

Sounds about right, it'll feel odd for a while, but by a month you should be quite addicted to it, lol.

For barbell-type form check, you can post it here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/forum/149-form-check/Even though we're from different guilds, they'll definitely help you out. Alternatively/additionally, you can post in your challenge thread as well.

You could still post them if you want (without points, however), and those of us who lift can chime in.  But the forum linked by Urgan is probably the best place, as there are many very experienced lifters there who can chime in!

I will be posting my PR here, but since I am jumping rope alternate days, I will make up a salad dressing, and post pics in the galley on those days.

Initial stats :

Incline Pushup = 8

Box Squat = 5

One Arm Dumbbell Row = 5 (per side)

Assisted Split Squat = 5 (per side)

Knee Plank = 15 sec

I will also try to post form checks for all of the above.

Just one PR for me today

I was finally able to do handstand pushups!

so I went from 0 to 3

 

That is awesome.  I'm so far away from handstand pushups they are not even on my radar.

Okay so today I did 12 reps with a 14 lb dumbbell for the dumbbell rows during my BBWW. Previously I've only done 10 reps. I think it's close to time to up the weight, but I have to buy a new dumbbell or kettlebell or find something around here that weighs more than 14 lbs first. I also did 10 push-ups with 2 stacked yoga blocks under my chest. I've only tried that exercise one other time and I did 6 reps that time. I'm working my way up to full push-ups as part of my challenge so that is probably where most of my PR's will be.

Ok, I'm here...but per Starsapart's suggestion, I'm going to bounce around a bit between here, Med Bay and Galley teams...

 

I'm basing my current starting points from AMRAPS I did last challenge...if I understand correctly, no AMRAPS, only reps...

 

So I'm going to be working on breaking down my workout in sets of reps...oh, and I'll be doing bodyweight...with my focus on upper body

 

Inverted rows (AMRAP 30)

Incline push ups (AMRAP 30)

Bulgarian Split Squats (AMRAP 30 each leg)

 

I think I read in an earlier post that time does not count towards PRs (like seconds holding a plank).  If that's true I'll be changing up the core aspect of my workout....

 

Elbow plank (AMRAP 180 seconds)

       --OR--

Reverse crunches

 

So here's to establishing a great offence and defense for the ship and her crew...

I'm glad I'm not the only one that's new to a gym, so will be setting PR's fast and furious!

 

Today I did leg presses at 55 pounds (plus body weight).  2 sets of 17, up from 15 on Monday.

 

I'll head over to the spreadsheet and claim the points!

Yes, you can count this as 1 PR and 1 form check video.  You do need to update the spreadsheet, though. :)  Shadow playing is always an option, but I bet no one would be upset at the additional help!  This team's job is fairly hard, seeing as making PRs is no small feat. :D

 

I think I read in an earlier post that time does not count towards PRs (like seconds holding a plank). 

 

That post referred to run time (essentially a measure of speed).  Increasing your plank time counts for Weapons/Shields. :)
