Myrik finds the scale


Myrik

Recommended Posts

As soon as Rue left Myrik started his preparation to get the scale and get out from under Tevoks thumb.  His knowledge for the Jedi Runes allowed him insight into which path to take and how to prepare for the traps and hazards he might face.  Myrik begins his training by reaching out to an old friend.  She is was a contortionist in a traveling circus and now teaches a eastern practice of flexibility.  

 

Goal I:

Maintain or get better

I will continue my tracking of workouts and weight on a daily basis.  My current weight crept back up a little this past week, im currently sitting at 207 LBS and want to see this number down around 200 again so I will start tracking my food intake once again.  Below are my current training maxes for my exercises that I do regularly.

Chin-ups - 7

Pull-Ups - 3

Squats - 20+

Assisted pistol squats - 7 each leg

Bulgarian split squats - 15 per side

Plyo Pushup - 10

Diamond Pushup - 15

incline push ups - 10

Jumping squats - 5

Burpees with jump tucks - 10

I would like to bump all of these up 2-5 points by the end of the month but will be very happy if I can get my pull ups to 5 and chin ups to 10. 

Every week I complete my tracking 100% is worth 100 points, That means tracking Food, Workouts and Weight everyday for the week.  I will use my tracking spreadsheet, the forums and My fitness pal for the tracking.

 

Goal II:

Conditioning redo

Need to get back in the habit of running or biking or something to get my endurance up.  My new fitness tracker my wife got me for Christmas will help me with my endurance.  It has a built in feature that shows target heart rate zones based on the my rested heart rate and has a vigorous activity tracker that is set at 150 minutes a week(checked Vivoactive and it's 150 minute so its updated).  My goal is to hit that 150 minute activity a week and , run, roller blade, or bike 30 minutes a week.

Every week I am able to complete this is worth an additional 100 points.

 

Goal III:

Get Flexible

I want to get more flexible.  I want to stretch everyday in some way shape or form.  Yoga, static stretching, dynamic stretching or some combination of these I want to do at least 10 minutes a day.  I will track this on my spreadsheet and it will be worth 100 points a week.

Following again for the awesome. Do you have a specific goal for "get flexible"? Like toe touches, or splits, or "I don't make noise when I put my shoes on" levels? 

No real goal yet, I can bend and touch my toes already splits might be a little out of my reach right now but maybe in the future.  I think my goal will be to do a side kick or front kick without feeling a tightness in my hips.

I think so too.  Might be getting a heavy bag to hang in my garage so I have something physical to kick at instead of trying to stop my kicks mid air.

You're right, that's a really good day. Way to start the year! :) 

Do you find wrapping or using an ankle brace helps or interferes with healing?

I wrap it from time to time but I cant stretch it very well when wrapped.  I haven't used a brace on it.  I have been able to walk, and jump rope on it for about a week now, but the cold air this weekend in TX played havoc on it.

Yikes on the ankle. It sucks that such a seemingly small injury (rolling an ankle as opposed to spraining or breaking) can have a gigantic impact later. Have you tried k-tape? Benefits of wrapping but allows you to maintain mobility?

 

I'm jealous of your rings and ringwork!

I made my rings using PVC pipe and Para cord, think it cost me $7 to make.

That seems easy enough! I don't really have a place to use them right now, but I'll definitely keep this in mind for the summer months.

Push

Diamond push-up 15

Typewriter push-up 7

Uneven (one-hand raised) push-up 5

 

Pull

Standard Pull ups - 4

Didn't try archers because my door jam is to short and narrow.  Maybe this weekend ill give them a shot at work.

 

legs

Balance-assisted pistol squat - 4 on left leg 5 on right

 

Core

Hanging leg raise - 5 might be able to do Toe-to-bar but once again limited by my home equipment.  

 

Want to say thank you to @Anim07734 for putting this challenge together.  been looking at changing up some of my workouts because i am in that 12-20 rep range for a lot of stuff and need to get it back below the 10 rep point for improvement.  Now to go and do at least 1 more set of my level reps.

So I have been missing from the Forums this week do to a few things, my youngest is cutting her Fangs and isn't sleeping well at night and I caught a cold or some other upper repertory track infection.  Yesterday it royally kicked my butt.  Felling much better today so today I will give a full workout a shot and try to get in sometime on the stationary bike at the gym on base.
