It's quite the rabbit hole to fall down... I've struggled with keeping my nutrition in check for months now.  If I can at least commit to a slow and steady bulk/recomposition I can hope to gradually reduce what remains of the bicycle tire around my midsection.  :P  Besides, eating more carbs is always more fun!

It's just a fancy book cover for a generalized challenge celebrating my love of CrossFit, Reebok, self-improvement and each and every theme inspiration that might come along the way.  A catch-all, if you will.  ;)

It's a gem.  Check the website out too.  Lots of cool stuff over there.  It's going to be my overarching theme is challenge... self-improvement and full-spectrum Rangery!  :)

Agreed.  The funny thing is, it's one of the most rare attributes to score on the Human Score test.  Mostly Brain Buffs seem to come out of there.  That add and the accompanying Reebok shenanigans was one of my earliest contributions to Ranger discussion last year.  We had a grand ole time talking about the various scores and the meaning behind the philosophy of being more human.

You've been pretty inspiring these past couple of challenges, so I thought I would follow along rather than just lurk this time around. That Human Score is really interesting. I won't lie and say that #MomoaMonday doesn't hurt anything, either.

Fellow Ranger, we still gotta Range together at some point in the future. Spartan race circuit 2017 with all the NF visitations.  (Or go to Rome OR skip Spartan and go do Toughest....)

 

YESH!  I'll have to take a look at your proposed schedule for 2017 and see if we cannot make something work.  Maybe Montana, if you'll be out that way?

Inspiration is my jam!  I've loved Reebok's marketing since they teamed up with CrossFit HQ to promote everyman fitness.  At the risk of sounding like a mindless fanboy, they just dialed in the philosophy for me with #BeMoreHuman.  It doubly helps that I needed a challenge theme to encompass all of my interests and my focus on the Sport of Fitness coming down off the 2016 Games last month.  ;)

I cannot take credit for the signature change.  Some devious Greek abused his moderator powers... but I'm not offended, so it can stay.  :P

 

Since I paid for their coaching plan last year, I still have access to all of ETP's hidden groups on Facebook and whatnot so the program definitely works.  It just feels so bloody counter-intuitive to eat more food to lose weight in the long run.  Building more muscle = more caloraic expenditure, so the science is sound but... well, I can't seem to live in 2200 calories right now anyways.  Might as well build some muscle and keep killing it in the gym if I'm not dedicated to shredding the last of my tummy weight off.  2950 is such a more pleasant number for my love of chocolate and pizza!  Check out their website:  Start Here.

 

I think I need a sugar detox though.  It's only Monday, but I'm off to a good start.  :P

I hear reports of my doppelgangers all over the world.  Seriously.  People who've known me my whole life has spotted Rurik lookalikes on vacation in the Caribbean, in Europe, Australia, and certainly throughout North America.  It's the damnedest thing!

There'll be plenty of the former, and I'm crossing my fingers for the opportunity to film some kind of gym-related accomplishment to be worthy of the latter. 

 

After all, I'm nearly certain posting one's PRs on Instagram is one of CrossFit's 10 Commandments.  :P
