Mini Quest: Br0din presents The Battle Cry


Br0din

Recommended Posts

Bro's and SwoleMaidens,

 

We Warriors have a little bit of a reputation of being a little isolated from the rest of Nerd fitness guilds.  We know what we like to do, put our earbuds in, listen to loud music, make ugly faces and loud grunts as be bang our heavy ass weights around.  Talking to others is verboten.  But are you getting the most out of your workouts?  Are there things the other guilds do that maybe help you recover? fix deficiencies? change the monotony of your workout?  Maybe increase your conditioning?

 

This Challenge period,  I challenge you to try something new.  I want you to look at all the other guild's mini-challenges are participate.  Make new friends, learn new skills, maybe...  just maybe you'll do some cardio.

 

 

Adventures have Mario Cart Games

 

Assassin's are playing Sonic the Hedgehog

 

Or do "Conditioning" with the rangers

 

Then come back here and tell us how much fun you had, or (unlikely,) how much you hated it.  Now, go forth and show these other guilds how awesome Warriors are.

 

You will keep all the loot you achieve in these quests plus 1 point for wisdom when you complete a challenge.

On it: Ranger mini.

 

Last week I clocked in 15mi with various rucks from 10# - 20#

This week I'm getting my shit together to be fluid on the wooden dummy again for the combat challenge, also working with long staff and punch conditioning.

I rarely participate in our own minis! And now you want me to socialize with other guilds! *shudder* ;)

some cardio.

 

 

 

I accidently did 6  deadlifts at 167.5kgs on Tuesday.  Because it's more than 5, it's cardio.  

 

I'm done with cardio for the rest of the month

I promise there is more than "just cardio" coming with the Ranger mini.  Might be something Warrior-friendly coming.

 

I have an "in" with a guy who knows a guy who knows the guy who does the planning.  ;)

So, week 1 hapenned to coincide with burning out on my lifting program and needing to clear my head in the mountains... week 2 started right after an invigorating Kung Fu workshop... week 3 goes along with me starting a new lifting program. Any clues as to what sea changes my life will be taking next week? :P 

 

(Is knowing the future burdensome at times?)

It might coincide perfectly with whatever plans you already have, so I would go into Week 3 with the intent to start that new lifting program.

Immediate plans are quite concrete... I'm more concerned about week 4! Will the new puppet factory job require unexpected combination of dexterity and strength? Will a long lost twin return with hilarious results? Will Erica wake up from her coma to discover that Chance has left her for her mother's aunt's niece's horse's jockey??? GAH. I'm tired just thinking about it :P

It's easier to act surprised if I actually am.

 IF you're planning it, then it must be Warrior friendly. 

 

We all know you're secretly a warrior at heart despite your ranger exterior.

Tank keeps me centered, but I've always thought the cloak is flattering to my shoulders.  ;)

So how is everyone doing with the minis?

The Ranger mini this week pretty much let's you earn points for the lifting you were already going to be doing :)

 

 

Oh you know, keepin on. I gave myself shit over the combat challenge last week, so this week I'm not gonna stress it - just logging what I can remember and calling it a day :D
