Challenge: Skipping leg day

Recommended Posts

8ba6f6324c3e1b4818d9fc3cdea8b193.jpg

 

We all know that a true Warrior never lets a fellow Warrior skip leg day. But lets be honest beach body season is closing in and we worked on da wheelz last time with the 50/50 Squat challenge. So as your Guild Leaders we are encouraging you to embrace your inner bro and remember every day is upper body day.

 

The challenge will target two of the biggest muscle groups that'll help you fill out that summer time tank or deep v tee. You're going to need two barbells, as you'll be super setting different movements with different weights, and a watch or your phone because its going to be timed.

 

With a strict 25 minute cap, you'll complete 5 rounds of:
Max Rep Bench Press @ 75% of your body-weight
Max Rep Barbell(EZ Curl bar) Curl @ 25% of your body-weight

 

This challenge should be approached with a bit of a strategy. You want to go to your (Max Reps - 1) on each of these sets, because you know there's going to be another round coming shortly thereafter. With a 25 minute cap, you have 5 minutes per round, which should allow you your necessary 3-5 minutes of rest time for muscle/energy recovery between sets. That said, this can very well burn a bit as you should always be keeping an eye on the clock.

 

Options for our more veteran and our newly recruited Warriors.

 

Advanced : 100% body-weight bench and 35% body-weight curls or chin ups

 

Scaled : (if your 1RM is less than your body-weight) 70% of your 1RM for bench and 10% body-weight in dumbbells(curl both at the same time)

 

Scores will be all rounds added together. A score of 120 will net you 1.5/1.5 to STR/STA, 90 will net you 1/1, and a score of 60 will get you .75/.75.
We'll run this challenge until 6/4 to give you guys ample time to get your bench on. Get after it!

I figure I should do one of these eventually, and now is convenient, since I'm deloading and will probably have some left in the tank for most of this challenge. I didn't realize we were still doing attribute points.

And score is based on total reps? Is there an adjustment to the score or reward for doing the advanced weights?

There is medium and hard categories with the milestones stated. But you can expect@flex Luthor and myself and maybe others to go into competition for most reps.

Feel free to throw down with us or just hit the milestones.

Oooou. I wish I was in better condition for this, but I'm gonna put in as many attempts as possible in next few weeks. This is a fun one. Though I feel like it should be bench+pullups.

Not too bad I guess. I was worried about being super flabby with all the candy and cereal and lack of exercise. Only just a little worse than normal. 

 

Gonna try hardmode later next week,  I think. Hopefully with more than 3 hours of sleep.

So I'm new to this site and I decided I wanted to be a Warrior to get strong. The problem is I only have 60 pounds of Dumbbells. Could I make this work with that much or do I have to get more?

 

The absolute most important thing is START! 

 

Take those weights you have and start moving. Learn. Practice. Establish a new lifestyle.

 

If you need more shit, then you will get more shit, but that isnt near the top of your to-do list.

Attempted on normal mode.

 

Bodyweight: 185 lbs.

Bench @ 75%: 135 lbs.

Curls @ 25%: 45 lbs.

Very convenient numbers. I was able to do this while occupying just one bar.

 

12/17

9/14

9/10

7/10

7/11

 

Total: 106

 

Not bad for having neither curled nor done more than 8 reps of anything in years.

Frosted Mini wheats, topped with powdered gelatin, creatine, powdered cookies and cream protein, and almond milk.

 

I was almost going to try a protein  Dutch Baby, but I remembered that I should probably go to work.
