Wild Wolf: Street Level Hero


Wild Wolf

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals-welcome back to the wacky world of Wild Wolf! With this being the last challenge of the year, I really want to push myself and make this a worthy end to 2016, which, IMO, has been one of the craziest, most swanky years of my life. So. Much. Has. Happened. SO many epic NF meetups, so many new sports, new friends and new opportunities. It’s just hard to sum it all up into words but this year has changed me for the better.

 

Right now, I’m dealing with a new injury: my groin/abductor. I strained or pulled it while going too deep in my squats and an issue with my form. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t tracking my knee over my foot every time and this has caused issues in my abductor area. Now, I’m on full blown-out rehab mode on the injury. I even ordered a set of mini-bands for Black Friday to help with this process. I’m also adding the mini-bands to my shoulder rehab as well. 110% will be focused on strengthening these injured areas and getting me back to “fighting form”.

 

This challenge will be dedicated to turning me back into the badass street level hero I used to be.

What exactly is a “street level hero”? The term typically pertains to heroes who stick to the streets due to being a bit out of their weight class when dealing with anything more dangerous or powerful. These characters almost never use anything other than martial arts, hand-to-hand fighting skills, and various weapons and gadgets (including guns) to get the job done.

 

Who are some famous “street level heroes”?

 
  • Batman

  • Daredevil

  • The Punisher

  • Iron Fist

  • Moon Knight

  • Spider-Man

  • Any of the Robins

  • And even Deadpool

 

You get the picture. But those are some big names being thrown out there, especially Batman, probably the most iconic hero of them all.

During these next 5 weeks, I will be harnessing my skills and doing what I need to do to get my body and my mind prepped to become a SLH. It will take hard work, long days and countless hours of training and studying...but I am willing to close out this year properly.

 

Goal #1: Take Care of your Body so you can Take Care of the Streets

 

cLkN3QkIHbRLWTK8zk2bzGR1sr1IG27hbib-KLvnKbHdnKe0CvNW5F6ilGVwqh50t8LmKkRBH5nEbHSLAf9BQtLHpZ1ztRT88h2eyPwZJeFmAWIHIOHBIYWxJA_ueXciEKTBXT7i

 

Rehab my groin and shoulder EVERY DAY. Simple. It should take 20-30 min a day to rehab both areas which isn’t anything. I need to get this done, though. No excuses.

 

Goal #2: Build the Diaphragm and Become a Better Fighting Machine

 

ZBq_zGzQVlbvKsJ2w4tyKI-BVHvHj1KPt5WwYEacnpFEycXYyL6lioJAZNpOCFpf-9vRGprQ6tJU91_p9MAxKAYUM-biKCbIXCHETGnAMnYBWDQ-FQmPbNaXBS9Dg83lSwrLvOm7

 

Breathing techniques-especially once I get my Training Mask in :). I got a hella good deal during Black Friday and finally pulled the trigger on one. I will practice various breathing techniques and follow Brian McKenzie’s Protocol post workout routine as prescribed/Rx’d.

 

Goal #3: Be a Better Steward of your Studies

 

QiP8p_lzFrAwDVDaKVAouAtAO51UbRm0LM-TjVFc_UhDmXzz3dDpx7DBgxokGRGgmVgEwDpKNFmjGxeWfDyJeZxTJDNVuzDLYYtzrzAhnEzNY3OOzcfFnJoMqALiQYAC5SZYTBti

 

3x a week. 15 minute sessions. A+ training. NO. MORE. EXCUSES! I’ve really fallen behind on this but need to get back on my hacker game and study some more. I’m almost done with module 801 and then I can move onto testing. Studying also applies to learning more about how to make myself antifragile. Always strive to learn more and soak up the knowledge that is out there.

 

Goal #4: Continue to Eat for Size

 

X3dPWwOQlm6Rul8tgXbJ7SAx-gn85_0HhmVqUe52yu0MvpP9-oJjv0Hj1enYdEkmA7Fqcp-Bd_iYYbB72YRo-9Ii422wCd19fWfJwY3AVcRun6GBFrpKT4C2y_6_p68CxY0BygDY

 

I’ve put on about 8 pounds or so, but it’s not all lean muscle. Focus on eating for size but also focus on eating clean as well. I need to be eating more veggies and I want to include veggies in 80% of my meals. I should also be drinking 100+ oz of water a day and 30+ more on training days.

 

This one’s gonna be reaaaal simple you guys and I’m excited to have you along for the last challenge of 2016!

I put on a bunch of weight over the past year and a half and not all of it is lean muscle, either.  Usually the idea of "bulking" is you are just eating to get bigger.  I psych myself into it by saying my goals are to get strong and fat.  There is an Untamed video where Alan Thrall talks about every program working if you do your part by eating and sleeping.  He also claims a guy looks better at 200 pounds and 18%BF than he does at 150 pounds and 15%BF.

Granted.  I am not a 150 pound 18yo trying to put on mass.  So when I say I am "bulking" I just mean I don't care about my diet and what it does to me.

Yeah, I'm interested in playing around with the training mask once it comes in. I've been looking at one since I started training for my Spartan last summer and I'm glad I waited for Black Friday because I got a great deal.

 

I've been contemplating getting a sleeve. Either the Joker or Storm Trooper one

I firmly believe that if you rest as hard as you play, maybe harder, that your results will be that much better. Sleeping and eating properly, I agree wholeheartedly my friend. I'm still gonna eat my PB&J sandwiches religiously (per a tip from Dan John) and just consume and consume and rest. I really need to get back on my #NapGame during lunch time. I care about eating veggies...but not so much about being any cleaner than that lol. I would love to be at 200# so maybe if I can keep things going then I can get there. Hell, even 190# would make me happy. 

 

I guessed I missed the story of your groin injury brother, lol, what happened?
