Did some of you go to NF camp recently? Is that why some of you started out on a down note?

 

Never mind, I understand now. I also understand the post-camp blues even though I haven't been to one, the feeling after such an event (and there are many other situations in which these same feelings would occur, I've felt them myself) is terrible but they pass, don't let the memories pass though, treasure them.

Everyone's over here loving that selfie game...and I'm in the back here thinking "Damn, I forgot about Flannel Friday!"

 

But seriously, pictures look awesome and goals are progressing nicely!

Day 1.5-1.7

My weekend was crazy and hectic, which was fine, but I really just wanted to rest.

Friday hung out with @Haikoo @maigrey and @Amdhiel and talked about CAMP and implementing change and goals for the future :)

Saturday I had the lazies and the sads, but got over it and made it to the tiny apartment gym for a quick bro sesh. Bench +farmer walks + curls = happy Marissa

Then the bachelorette party was Saturday night! We started at a pizza place with stand-up arcade games then went back to my place for pokemon drinking games and cake and shenanigans. Overall a great time had by all and I stayed up way too late.

Sunday I slept through half the afternoon and watched 3 episodes of Luke Cage before I dragged myself off the couch to do some shopping.

 

Tonight I've got gymnastics. I also really need to go grocery shopping and prep lunches. Also, laundry....ugh.

 

 

I've also decided I'm following waaaaayyy too many people this challenge, so I apologize if I drop from some of your challenges while I try to keep up with my own goals.

Howwww did I not know you were this much into gymnastics stuff? I would have totally nerded out with you about it at camp.  I was on the gymnastics team in high school! I sucked, I was really a dancer but all my friends on the gymnastics team coerced me into joining and I basically just ballet-ed on the beam and on floor but still. This is so cool! So you're trying to cast to high bar? Or cast to low bar squat to high bar? Can you do a kip?

 

/end(gymnastics harassment)

 

Ouch called outtt! You guys are tough over here in the warriors. >.<

AWESOME!!! I didn't know that either! We totally could have geeked over it! (Sidenote: have you met @raptron? She's a badass) I haven't really done much before, I started about 6 months ago, but I'm picking it up pretty easily :) I cannot do a kip, that's one of the things I'm working toward. This was just low bar and bringing my legs up to a squat and then stand to high bar, without a cast. I'm like a level 2 gymnast lol

 

That's part of our warrior charm ;)

Yes! I was having this conversation with a friend last week that it's very typical for things like retreats or summer camps. It's really hard not to be emotional over it. It seems to be hitting me extra hard.

Confession. I think I like squatting better in Chucks :(

 

Day 2.1

Gymnastics last night! Spent a ton of time on tumble track back-tumbling. Trying to progress to a back tuck. I had one where the set was really good, but I think the set kind of scared me and the flip went everywhere. The others the flips were good, but the sets were not, so I traveled too far. Mostly doing combos of back handspring + back tuck, but some just SBT. Also a few roundoff back handspring for good measure. Then some press handstand work and core conditioning at the end.

 

Also, grocery store and meal prepped by roasting some veggies. Either I 1) used too much oil, or 2) had too high of vegetable density on the pan because they turned out fairly soggy. I've never roasted vegetables before (except as part of a recipe) I just kind of coated in oil and seasoning and then spread out on the pan and baked. Hopefully they still taste fine.

I only use my lifters when I do front squats or olympic lifts. They throw me off for back squats...makes my ankles feel weird.

 

I used chucks when I did strict powerlifting. I am now switching between strength work and metcon so I switch between barefoot and my running shoes. I got the Nano's in an attempt to bridge that gap and stop ruining socks at the gym.

What temp did you roast them on? I really only roast broccoli and cauliflower but I find that if I use too low a temperature then they get soggy rather than crispy. I bought a oil spritzer and fill it with olive oil and very lightly spray my veggies. Then I roast them at 425-450. Id rather them to brown up a bit at the high temp than be soggy. They get soggy enough sitting in the tupperware containers after.

 

EDIT: Turns out there is a NF article about this from a while back that popped up on the google - https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2015/03/19/how-to-make-roasted-vegetables/

Hahah, I was also about to chime in with roasting advice. Turns out all of us roast veggies all day. XD 

 

Also sometimes overcrowding or just having a bit too many vegetables in there makes them steam each other instead of roast, so you can get sog that way as well.

I don't care much for the heel for powerlifting movements, but it's a godsend for the occasional chaos of Cleans & Snatches.  My Nano 6s feel dramatically more stable than my 4s so I might switch to them for my back/front squats and see how that feels.  I know I've got the ankle mobility already so I'm not terribly worried about that.

I only use my lifters when I do front squats or olympic lifts. They throw me off for back squats...makes my ankles feel weird.

 

I used chucks when I did strict powerlifting. I am now switching between strength work and metcon so I switch between barefoot and my running shoes. I got the Nano's in an attempt to bridge that gap and stop ruining socks at the gym.

I'm actually finding them most useful for benching. But I also don't do Oly so...

What temp did you roast them on? I really only roast broccoli and cauliflower but I find that if I use too low a temperature then they get soggy rather than crispy. I bought a oil spritzer and fill it with olive oil and very lightly spray my veggies. Then I roast them at 425-450. Id rather them to brown up a bit at the high temp than be soggy. They get soggy enough sitting in the tupperware containers after.

 

EDIT: Turns out there is a NF article about this from a while back that popped up on the google - https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2015/03/19/how-to-make-roasted-vegetables/

I used the NF article.

^this, you really don't need much oil! I usually do broccoli and asparagus this way

Hahah, I was also about to chime in with roasting advice. Turns out all of us roast veggies all day. XD 

 

Also sometimes overcrowding or just having a bit too many vegetables in there makes them steam each other instead of roast, so you can get sog that way as well. 

I think my problem was overcrowding/density.

I reheated them tonight and put half on the same pan that I used to roast originally and they turned out fine. 

And now I know... next time, use 2 pans.

I don't care much for the heel for powerlifting movements, but it's a godsend for the occasional chaos of Cleans & Snatches.  My Nano 6s feel dramatically more stable than my 4s so I might switch to them for my back/front squats and see how that feels.  I know I've got the ankle mobility already so I'm not terribly worried about that.

Since my chucks are pretty much shot and it's decided I don't really like the lifters for squatting, maybe I'll give those a shot.

I'm finding it's easier to hit depth and I also have the ankle mobility to squat in flat shoes.

 

Day 2.2

Yesterday was a great day :)

Started the morning with sumo deadlifts, which was the first time I had done sumo in a while, but they were feeling good so I went with it. A little bit of energy leak from the bar traveling forward/back, but sumo is way more technical than conventional so that is to be expected.

 

Work. Lunch with @Amdhiel and 1 more NF nerd, one not yet NF nerd. We talked space and nerd stuff and ate food and a great time was had by all. She also reminded me to do my mindful moment so props to her. Finished up my work day and headed home for the evening where I proceeded to roast chicken for dinner, do laundry, do my hand, wrist, elbow mobility, and then handstand practice. Followed by reading Batman in bed with a Spotted Cow. (So behind on my comics, my list for today's trip has 15 on it :unconscious:)
