Elinox's Werewolf Workout

Recommended Posts

Main Quest
To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy.

My motivation


I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I've managed to put on some muscle in an effort to become stronger by weightlifting and I’ve discovered that I love lifting heavy things!



I enjoy doing themed workouts and for this challenge it will be werewolves. For several reasons but mostly because 1. I love them 2. they’re the best fantasy monster and 3. they’re amazingly fast and incredibly strong beasts not to be messed with. This is perfect for a warrior challenge!



Smaller Quests



1. Weights



It’s time to get back to lifting all the heavy things! I’ve missed it, so it’s time to re-set and lift stuff again. I like it, it makes me feel better about myself and it’s got practical, real-world purposes.



This time though, I’m going to be focusing on arms since another small quest will be devoted to legs.



Werewolves are, first and foremost, destructive forces with incredible strength. Most werewolves are particularly strong in the upper body, although they’re really just all-over slabs of muscle.



Scoring: x/5 (1 for each weight achieved)

  • Bar Curls: 20lbs → 25lbs = with good form!

  • Bench Press: 70lbs → 80lbs

  • Overhead Press: 40lbs → 50lbs

  • Pull Downs: 60lbs → 80lbs

  • Tricep Pullovers: 20lbs → 30lbs

Reward: +5 to STR (+1 for each completed)



2. Dutch

I’m going to Bonaire in May 2017 and one of the native languages spoken there is Dutch (the island is owned by the Netherlands) so I want to try learning a new language. This time, rather than M-F for a set amount of time, I want to try just practicing daily. And since it’s the holiday season this should be a good challenge for this time of year.



Not particularly werewolf-themed, however there have been stories regarding werewolves in the Netherlands. There are a lot of werewolf stories from Germany, so since Dutch is in the German language family, I’ll take it.

Scoring: /28

Reward: +4 to WIS



3. Running

I still don’t like running, but even I have to admit that it’s a good workout. And, it actually cuts my time I have to be at the gym down since I work up a sweat much faster. I want to run at least twice a week.

This will also be my leg workout for this challenge.



Not only are they incredibly strong, but werewolves are faster. Often faster than the human eye can even track. They are silent, deadly predators that not only rely on their inhuman strength, but also on their blindingly fast speed. Running is an endurance sport and werewolves do a lot of it. Hopefully, I’ll be able to increase my own speed by continuing to practice running.

Scoring: x/4

Reward: +3 STA & +3 to DEX

Dutch: 5/28

 

I had to finish the animal lessons and in doing so, hit Level 4!

 

However, after 5 days of this odd take on German, I think I'm going back to Spanish for the remainder of this challenge. Mostly because the DuoLingo automated pronunciation male voice is really hard to understand. At least the female, Spanish voice enunciates her letters!

No, mostly because DuoLingo is fast and easy to use, even in its app form on my phone.

My non-existent Spanish is rusty, but does that translate to "Wolves of Arga: a comedy with claws"??? Why isn't this on Netflix??

I found it on youtube!

It doesnt have the subtitles though 

I haven't seen it yet but I might watch it later tonight and guess what they are saying :P

Honestly, don't tell the WAG group, but has any werewolf movie, ever, had dialogue worth hearing??

 

Van Helsing, the first Underworld movie, American Werewolf in London, Wolf, The Wolf Man (2010), The Company of Wolves, Teem Wolf (the movie), all have half-way decent lines. Not stellar, but not terrible either. ;)
