Strickland5 comes out swinging in the tenth


Strickland5

Recommended Posts

Morning Rangers!  I'm Strickland5 a friendly scout leader type who's coming over to y'alls sandbox for his tenth challenge. 

 

I'm over here for this challenge as I'm taking part in a six week kettle bell and TRX series with my boot camp as well as run a half-marathon on challenge week 2 (11/14). With that in mind figured I'd come over here and play :)  I'll be filling in the details of this challenge over the next week ... so please stay tuned!

Quest 1 : 626 Training (Str+3, Con+2)
giphy.gif

So the program is called 626 (or six weeks to a six pack) while I know I'm NOT going to get a six pack in six weeks as my current body fat percentage is ~30%, I do want to drop the fat which will help me become a faster runner! 

 

I've signed up for the program and will be doing two days of kettle bells and a day of TRX PLUS our regular boot camp.

 

I'd liked to drop the body fat so that'll be my goal after I talk to my instructor to see what should be a good % to drop!

A : lose 10% of body fat

B : lose 9-5% of body fat

F : lose 4% or less of body fat

 
Quest 2 : 626 Diet (Sta +1, Wis +2)

626 follows a fairly stick no gluten and no dairy format of fooding.  I've done this before and will strive to do it again. I'm going to allow myself 2 of either a week as cause yogurt is my jam! Plus I'd like to have a beer from time to time ;)

 

There is ONE major exception to this. I bought tickets to Strong Beerfest before deciding to do 626 and I LOVE that festival. So I will NOT be counting all the strong beer tastings against this goal.

 

A : 2 or less gluten/dairy items a week

B : 3 gluten/dairy items a week

F : 4 gluten/dairy items a week

 
Quest 3 : Keep Running (Sta+2,Con+2)

6355546752442529921026799143_rockyrun.gi

I'm a scout and have a half marathon in week 2 of this challenge so running is going to keep happening! 

 

Outside of camp I want to do 6 runs - probably going to be on Saturday as that's my "free" day but I need to keep my feet moving.

 

A : 6 runs

B : 5 runs

F : 4 or less runs

 

 
Life Quest : Have a little fun! (Chr +1,Wis+2)

tumblr_nr1f57yPV61uymix6o1_500.gif

I'm finding that I'm not getting much in the way of personal time to recharge my batteries. SO to help once a week I want to take some much needed me time - this could be playing D&D with friends, taking some time to do some non-work reading, or even just going for a walk. 

 

A : 6 fun thing

B : 5 fun things

F : 4 or less fun things

Seriously, we're all hoppin' around this challenge! The circle is nearly complete...

 

Gluten free (with the exception of the occasional beer) is an unbeatable way to tackle your weight loss goal.

I'm trying to find out what a good % body fat loss would be ... don't want to shoot too high or too low ... if that make sense.  I'll be weighting in on Saturday so I'll have true numbers then.

This is what happens when I try to be witty before having coffee: I get accidentally murderous. 

 

I meant musical chairs, of course...

Just curious, and that makes complete sense. It all depends on how steep a cut you're introducing and how closely you adhere to said cut, and I'm not a big advocate for super steep ones because KB competition and race runs on whut?

Not sure I'm going to be competitive in the kettle belling ... but hoping to put on a bit of muscle and lose more than a bit of fat.

 

I've got to talk to my instructor about what are the realistic results for me. Aside from the beerfest I don't foresee myself slipping in the diet which I know is where the six pack/fat loss really starts from.

Compete against yourself, if nothing else. The added muscle will help in every single way. 

 

Truth, the more sparing the beer, the better for your goal to be sure.

Oh that will be the truth of it ... I've done kettles before and definitely feel that I'll be pushing past my lowly 35lb'er but we'll see how it all works out :)
 

 

Welcome to the Ranger Corps. Good luck trying to get back to the scouts at the end of the challenge  :nevreness:

⌐_⌐      er

¬_¬      um

⌐_⌐      well

¬_¬      uhh

 

I'll just run along ;)

Week 1 Day 1

 

Quest 1 : 626 Training

We starting not so bright but or so early today at 5AM! We did a trio of circuit workout with kettles and man was it tough. Turkish get ups are nothing to make fun of. My goal was to go as slow as I need to and still maintain form - ended up doing 1 rep on each side without a weight as I was just tired.

 

I'm currently using a 25 lb bell for the get up, my swing weight is a 35 and my press weight is a 30. 

 

After we did heavy weights we did boot camp! Which was a 45 minute HIIT style workout with a 30-45 second rounds of cardio and 1 minute rounds of strength ... it was a brutal combination after doing the kettle bell work! 

 

Quest 2 : 626 Diet

So far so good here - while I did want a glass of booze after my less than thrilling day I have avoid 'em cause I want to do this right.

 

Quest 3 : Keep Running

Nothing here yet as its only day one X_x

 

Planning for a 6 miler on Saturday as part of my taper.

 

Life Quest : Have a little fun!

Currently enjoying some me time with the kittens as my wife is off having dinner with friends !
