It’s Saturday night, finish your tendies, entrails, big bowls of crack and whatever other routine weekend recreational delights you enjoy, and pick a fitness challenge for the next 7 days.
pick one thing and commnit to the next 7 days
post here every day, set a timer on your phone or whatever
choose an avater forfeit, something dumb or gross that you have to keep for one week if you wimp out - mine is to put a pink pussy hat and some problem glasses on my avater. Chose something that represents not-you to remind yourself you pussed out on a commitment of just 7 days…
Because “some people”:
don’t be a retard and get injured or dead, or we’ll laugh at you and use your skin to bind our grimoires, so ONLY pick something you know you can make safe progress on
no need to post specifics if you prefer not to, just commit the progression/amount of increase for sets or rep, etc.
I’m going to do planks, I fucking hate them, I’m a fabulous Electric Goddess of the New Aeon and pretending to be a plank of wood is about as far from my natural state as possible, but they’re a good workout.
I commit to starting at 3 x 60s using our back doortsep (about 8 inches high) and working up 10s a day through to 130s, by next Saturday - more than doubling my time.
@Drachir, you’re volunteered for this, anyone else?
I’m in. I am a former power lifter and have always loved training, but I had to stop a few years ago for two spinal surgeries. I have been pain free for a little over a year now, so it is time to train again. It would be a fool’s errand to go with heavy weight, so I want to try new things. I’m thinking body weight and flexibility training this time around. This week I am going to loosen my hamstrings and start a new core routine. Btw,
planks are awesome.
What i did three years ago, in order to become stronger and healthier for some fake bitch was:
Jogging -at night, at least a kilometers
night/evening -a combination of squats and arm circles with a weight in each hand.
i did that while watching some series.
sometimes was i doing crunches in between -longer series’s like berserk from 1997 were great to keep me ongoing, or stupid lets plays from the witcher 3.
I’ll first start my squad combination.
~I’m allready cycling multible times per week, i could start do that daily
(but i couldn’t do that in the winter, or rain) so… i can only hope that my financial situation will get better, so i could buy some tools as a alternative, sometime.
I think we need to up the stakes - I’m at a loss for an award that would work right now but we can all make a pledge, right, for a forfeit? To tun for one week, to balance not being able to commit to who and what we want to be for the same 7-day period?
@Drachir - pledge to change your avatar to a photo of Angela Merkel naked if you drop out!
Srs: think how nice it would be, to see those pasty greenish-beige rolls, the ripples and shimmies, every time you make a post… attached to you, through the aether, like some kind of vast and slightly ammoniac spirit waifu!
Or something, dunno, juast to make it more real.
I’ll put a fucking pussy hat on mine if I puss out and don’t do the planks, or maybe photoshop on some nice bright red problem glasses, something horrible.
So, pick a forfeit for your avater people, let’s get serious!
lol it’s probably going to be really nice weather, we’re all going to drop out and the forum front page will be full of pictures of saints, jesus, chicks in burqas and ugly politicians, it’s going to be a riot either way!
Goit to be worth singing up for that alone right folks?
