Sooooo yesterday was weights day... I think I have my math right, if someone wants to check it against my workout below. That should help numbers a bit. I'll do it again tomorrow. That should contribute to offering our help/threatening hindrance?

 

  Reveal hidden contents

3 sets of:

 

15 each of: in, out, forward and back shoulder rotations (highest AMRAP is 17)

10 precision jumps (AMRAP 12)

15 scap raises (AMRAP 15)

25 seconds hollow body rock (AMRAP 25 seconds)

15 lateral raises (AMRAP 15)

high-knee run in place (19,18,16 reps respectively, 1 rep is each leg up, pushed to AMRAP)

15 incline pullups (AMRAP 18)

4 pushups (AMRAP 4)

22 seconds jumping on toes, going for height (AMRAP 22 seconds)

 

Edit: Oooh, wait. If I'm reading this right, "-- No team member may contribute more points than double the team average," that means Greyspeed and I are capped at 250. JediNick, FlexLuthor, and LilMissBri are also capped, but this becomes a case where every little bit counts. Bringing up the team average by 1 point increases everyone who's capped by 2 points. 

 

That got us pretty close to the Mellogoth's score!

And it appears we have pulled ahead of the Mellogoths (for the time being).

Spikey knees seems the most useful, but any of them could come in handy. If we offer to help, it becomes unlikely that the Wholly Avengers would stop us both (knock on wood).

Agreed, but I don't expect negotiation unless our lead increases.

I'm doing as much as I can today to try and catch-up, it's going to all be piecemeal since my number of reps and seconds are crazy low for just about everything... but if I can do a hundred things once, it still counts! ;)

Today's Grand Adventuring... was not  as productive as I hoped. I was really counting on Wall Pushups to be a thing, but my elbow injury has nixed them flat out. So I did a lot of experimenting and found a handful of new things I can add to the routine going forward. All of it is still really really low reps (I'm only counting the ones I do 'right' so there's a bunch of flailing around and failing to get the few good ones. :lol:)

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for very simple stuff I can do? I'm very very beginner when it comes to all things... except walking and that idea got nixed. :lol: Right now I'm just working my way through the giant spreadsheet and giving everything a try (well, the plausible ones anyways. Wall handstands look cool, but I'm not that naive. ;))

Oh man I wish I could do those! Also it doesn't matter if it's low reps. In time those reps will go up and it will get easier. :) 

 

I'm currently trying to work my way through Startbodyweight . This will give you the starting exercise for some of the more impressive moves.

 

You can also do this one - NF Beginner Body Weight Routine.

Startbodyweight actually looks pretty cool, I'll have to run down it and see if there's anything I can add. The NF Beginner routine I've watched a couple times before, but not recently so I'll give it another go! :)

 

I'm pondering trying one-armed wall pushups because it's just my left elbow that doesn't work right now... I wish I could figure out what the heck I did to it so I can work at limbering it up again properly. *goes back to googling arm exercises* On a good note all the leg/knee work seems to slowly be convincing my knees that range of motion is actually a thing! :lol: On the bad (good?) note, it also means I might have to shift up a level back to normal squats by the end of this so my reps will drop again.

Definitely on the good side! Minis (in my opinion) are for fun, and tricking us into working out more. I don't remember if they're on the big list o' exercises, but hollow body holds and superman holds are core exercises that don't involve arms.

Alright team, we're hanging in there but have to decide whether we want to try to ally with Wholly or just let Mellogoth slide to victory.

Well Wholly made us a deal:

So, the Wholly Averagers help the Mellogoths side in the encounter with the Averager's full point score for the Restraining Order treasure with the stipulation that Averagers will not use it against the Mellogoths during any of the next encounters.


We haven't accepted yet.

As of right now, If they take that deal, they would easily win.  We can try to negotiate a deal with Mello for helping but right now the whollys are not a threat, knock on wood. We can sit and watch and the whollys might lose out on their deal. If we watch, the mellogoths would have no reason to take the whollys offer. 

 

We don't have to hurt or help if we don't want to right?

Sorry, I tend not to follow since NF made a habit of wiping your follow list on an irregular basis. I just go by the stars on threads you've already posted in. 

 

Just added last night's weights workout, we're pretty solidly in the lead. I guess the question is, do we want to force other teams to expend their treasure, so we can wield more clout later, or be nice so the others don't gang up against us later? In other words, what's our alignment here? :D I'm not against us negotiating to stay neutral. Keep i mind our points will reset with the beginning of the week, so it's a use it or lose it deal.

Sorry for my silence (and low numbers) I've been battling migraines most of the week. I'll see if I can't catch up a bit tomorrow!

 

I'm good either way folks decide to go, although I like the mercenary idea of 'give us stuff to either help or stay out' just because we're dragon themed and treasure is life! ;):lol:

I'm partial to being nice this first round. 

 

We are getting big numbers up which will be a positive indication that we mean business for future fights. 

 

Or we can do what @UnquietBones said. Offer our services to help, rather than hurt if they hand over a treasure. Either one they have now or one they get for winning. 

 

Does that sound like blackmail?
