    Thanks HellYeah80. I don't own scales so I don't know how that would work out for me. I'll see if it can work it out sometime. Since you guys are lifting more than my bodyweight with your pushups I'm going to guess it'll be a much lower number for me though.

    I sometimes envy professional athletes their bodies Redline but the ridiculous amounts of training and horrible diets they have to follow absolutely doesn't seem worth it for me. Working out in my spare time seems much more enjoyable. It certainly seems to suit you, looking good there, if you don't mind me saying

      that's correct HellYeah80 !

        I had to test this myself... My scale said today between 78 and 79kg... which is okay, I think I have lost a lot because of my hike... I need to eat a lot more in the next weeks
        And for the plank und push-up plank, 55kg and 60kg, which is exactly the weight, I can bench press with "ease" (lying on the bench)... Every weight higher, I start hating bench press

          In other words, HellYeah80... if we were doing bench presses, you'd be lifting about 20 kg more than me. Which kind of puts things in a brand new perspective.
          Iam sure i missed that, but is there a formular for that? How do i scale it?

          Edit: I've found the post from HellYeah80 . So its done.

            The thing with bodyweight training is, leverage plays a big part. Thinking about it, when I put my hands on my scales, they find themselves slightly above ground level. I should put my feet on something just as high to make sure those numbers are perfectly valid. But I guess it wouldn't change that much in that particular instance.

            Well, I don't. Thanks a lot!

            So, workout logs and news, in that order. I'm a little short on time, so I'll try to make it snappy.

            - Tuesday: no formal training (long day at work, lots of things to do afterwards), but still a lot of walking. I don't log my step count here, but my Fitbit tracker gives me an average of more than 15000 steps every day, which is pretty good, I guess.

            - Wednesday: 30DoG, day 14

            ... and yeah, wall-sits are evil.

            - Thursday: Ninpo - mostly kicks, combined with wrist locks.

            - Friday: again, no formal training (another long day, people to meet, things to do at home)

            - Saturday: 30DoG, day 15

            I also did 50 pull-ups throughout the day, in sets of 10.

            - Today: still to be done. But it's a stretching day, so, I don't mind doing it after dinner.

            News in the next post. I've got things I'm pretty excited about!

              OK, news. A couple of things - neilarey, I hope you don't mind me tagging you again, but I thought you might like to know.

              First, the Darebee workshop I did last school year in Marseille, until the summer holidays, is going to start again, on the same terms. I haven't said much about it recently because I was a little doubtful (the person I was in touch with at the Commmunity centre resigned, and my own weekly schedule doesn't make things very easy this year). Still, since last year's participants were very eager to continue, we found a way to make things work again. Which is nice.

              I also have an opportunity to set up another workshop in another place. The upside is, I would probably have fitter participants who wouldn't mind a challenge. The downside is, I can't be everywhere at once, I'm needed at home, and I already have a lot on my plate these days, so I haven't said yes yet. We'll see.


              In other respects, I have decided to revive the Community Quests in the Hive - in an unofficial way, a little like what noname and BraesiA already did. It's something I wasn't too sure about either, because I would like to do something good to motivate as many bees as possible, and that kind of thing can take a lot of work, and time. But, well, the idea was gnawing at me and wouldn't let go, so... I'm going to give it a try. It will be an ongoing story where the readers have to complete certain exercises to move on, a little like Carbon & Dust. I will post it in the Playground section. I've decided to add a few rules and tweaks to the original community quests, to make sure everybody can contribute. And, well, I certainly hope that you guys will like it.

              Updating the story will definitely keep me busy, which means I may not be able to check in here regularly. But I'll keep working out, of course.

                Sounds definitely very promising!

                  Well, you can see for yourself! Chapter 1 is now online. Along with a few guidelines.

                      Well, I'd better flex those writing muscles. Less than 24 hours have passed, and the first quest is nearly halfway complete. I may make things just a liiiittle bit harder in the near future...

                      For me, today:

                      ... with 30 seconds between sets for Part 1, and level 3 for Part 2 (done two minutes later).

                      And 100 march steps, 100 butt kicks and 100 high knees for the Community Quest.

                        Not too much harder! It's nice to be able to contribute something quickly during the work day.

                          I hear you! I really meant a little bit, honest.

                            That's great news about your classes! I wish I could join them, care to start a new branch in the English Midlands? And I'm excited about the Community Quests so thanks for starting it up again!
