Br0din prepares for Ragnarok


Br0din

Recommended Posts

I have returned to return to my awesomeness.  During my Br0din sleep, I had injured my lower trap, got sick, went on vacation them went through the holidays.  ...and I got fat and fat Warriors won't do well when Ragnarok comes around.

Therefore, I have to get the basics back into order and start new things!

 

1:  Get my workout back in order.  I'm doing a modified 5-3-1 with emphasis on Bench and front squats.  I've changed the order of my workout so I do squats/legs on day 2 and DL/back on day 3.  This has reduced my back fatigue/pain in the week I've done it.  I'm not lifting my deadlifts on a scheduled plan,  just going to do 4-5 sets of 5 to work my back, glutes and hammies.  And for those who know 5-3-1, I'm doing OHP on bench day.  Not trying to get super strong in OHP, just build strong looking shoulders.

 

Plan:  

A. Continue to lift and regain strength and get stronger because strong people crush weak people in battle.

B. More abs.  Do 15 min abs workout 4-5 times a week.  Abs help carrying load barring equipment into battle

C. Conditioning.  I need to improve my conditioning a bit.  So, I'll do some type of sprints, rows or horizontal cardio 3 times a week or go snowboarding for the day.  Everyone knows you can't kill frost giants all day long... if you can't last all day long.

C1.  Also, Since I got my promotion last summer and was moved to a first floor building, I realized that I'm missing the stairs in my life.  Therefore, all bathroom/water breaks will be done on the 3rd floor (highest floor of my building.)  Cause stairs are good.

 

2:  I got fat(ter).  I hit over 240lbs a couple of times (I was 212 in OCT) and I'm measured the highest I have ever measured on the waist.  This is unacceptable. 

a. Track all the foods.  

b. Be less fat.  Using the Marine body fat test,  I'm 21% BF with 50lbs of fat and a LBM of 186lbs.  So, losing the 25lbs I gained will quickly fix the problem that I don't fit inside my armor.  Also, I've been called out in bf% PVP, so I have to destroy me some up and comers and get back to being this guy:

3.  Ragnarok will require proper defensive positions and weapons.  So, I need to build proper defensive positions (I.e that shed Mrs. B wants me to finish.)  Then I will train with my new Sword (in the Romeo and Juliet sense (no, the Leo/Clare one!))

But first I need to prepare my sword for battle like buying sights for it and paint it "tacticool."  But do I got Multicam or black and white stormtrooper?

or

The more I look at it, the black and white is freaking cool looking.  But before I paint it, I need sights and have my sling mount put on it.

 

4.  Lastly, I've not been around the forum like I should be, so

Nice to see you with a challenge again.

 

Thanks!  I need to get my stuff together, and I have leadership duties that I've been neglecting.

If my son follows through, I'll have a new AR next week....not painting it.

 

AR's are like the rice rockets of the rifle industry.  I just want to make it mine.

This is almost correct, however where I live, its more like this:

sc-flooding-gif-ie.gif?w=400&h=225&crop=

 

Just kidding...  the "Storm of the Decade" was very disappointing.

 

Practice week is over.  

tumblr_n270lueik71rtpm86o6_250.gif?w=439

 

In that week, I tracked foods 4/6 days.  I didn't track Sat because My MIL had us over for dinner and Playoff football... and I may have had a beer.

Good news is all the beer is gone and I'm now focused to win the fattie PVP.

 

I did a ton of abs work this last week, which is good.

I didn't do a ton of conditioning...  like I only hit the rowing machine twice... and for only 500M each attempt... or under 2 min each time.

but I"m not a quitter...  I'll keep sucking at it.

I didn't work on my shed cause of the massive amount of rain we got

I did manage to squirrel away $50 towards my new scope (only $1250 to go!!)  but I got caught!!  Wife called me out for not budgeting it properly (or that I was saving for something I wanted that didn't align with her views...)
