Anamal Posted August 15, 2016 Report Share Posted August 15, 2016 Hello, My name is Anamal, and I am a mountain dwelling creature who lives amongst the desert humans of Southern California. This is not by choice exactly, but more as a penance for my foolish youth, where I willingly walked into the prison that is student loans. For this challenge I'm seeking a home with the Rangers. I hope this will be a place where I can push myself to master my body and push beyond my current skill levels. At the end of this challenge I want to be a leaner, faster, and more adept version of myself. GOALS: Strength Train 3x - Weekly For this challenge I'm going to try and do bodyweight strength training for shorter sessions, but more often. I'll be following the NFA bodyweight level 4 A, B and C workouts for the next five weeks. When I have the energy/drive I'll be adding in some gymnastics holds to the end of workouts (hollow body hold, back body arch, and chin-up hang). Green-Light Macros 5 of 7 - Weekly In addition to Nerd Fitness I'm also working with Eat to Perform to get my nutrition dialed in, and lose some extra body fat. My goal is to green-light (aka hit my macros) at least 5 days a week. The other two days are for long hike or backpacking weekends where I typically need to consume extra calories in order to keep up with my energy expenditure. Run Further Run Faster Similar to last challenge I'm going to work on building my mileage progression. This time with a weekly hills-repeat session thrown in. Week 1 - 13 miles, Week 2 - 14 miles, Week 3 - 15.5 miles, Week 4 - 17 miles, Week 5 18.5 miles Side Quest V1 - Keep up with pre-run warm ups and evening foam rolling to help prevent injuries. Steps on Steps on Steps I'm going to aim to have a daily average of 15,000 steps at the end of the week. As I'm already running a decent amount this is more to help me keep moving on my non-training days and burning extra calories to aid in weight loss, but in a non-taxing way. My reward for scoring at least a 90% throughout all four goals will be a new pair of trail running shoes. 2 Quote Link to comment
