    30 Days of Strength...?

    Comment


      Since when can you do enough pull-ups to do 30 Days of Strength?

        Foundation Light, Foundation, and 30 Days of Change at the same time?

          I can't do one!! But I thought negatives or rows would work...

            I'd love to try 30 Days of Change once, but.... jogging... in winter?

              I asked my sister about running in cold weather and if it effects one differently and all she responded with is "it makes you more badass."

              She trains for and has run several long marathons. She is legit.

                I bow in awe, your sister is indeed a badass. I'm not, so I'll take the warm blanket in front of the fireplace with a glass of milk and cookies any time.

                  Spartan Day 27
                  So I managed all six sets with 10 lb dumbbells I'd like to say I finished part two on level two. But. I didn't. I was at 30+ minutes and I felt that was good enough. *Shrugs* it's 730 pm and I was ready to be done.

                  One Minute Yoga Challenge, Day 8

                  Lots of random things:

                  During breaks I moved my weight bench around, put the bar that holds the back up on the barbell rack (?? This? The slots that would hold the barbell if John hadn't sold it) and turns out I can't really do body rows anyways. Maybe like 2 x .5 of them. Meh.

                  Been trying to do the low carb thing and realizing I'm a giant pain in John's ass. "Ham and beans?" "Can't have beans" "Potatoes with the leftover gravy?" "Can't have potatoes" "Burgers?" "Can't have buns" "Pizza?" "Crust?! SERIOUSLY?? " Aside from all that, I went down to 133.2 and a week later I'm at 134, not hungry, not bumming or feeling like I'm dieting. Weekends are a struggle... I find I can budget for carbs, half a baked potato or small bun on a sandwich if I do it mindfully. The WRENCH in the plan was my mom's best friend mailed me a loaf of her pumpkin bread Monday. Can't waste it. Won't share it. So I'm having the dumbest little slice each day with a TON of butter on it. Take that, keto

                  Today at work there was this horrible smell in my coworker's office. She was in a meeting so we sprayed air freshener and closed the door. When she got out of the meeting she emptied her trash and none of us could figure it out because she'd been in there before the meeting and it didn't smell (and I mean it freaking STUNK) so I walk back to my office, and the smell is following me!! It was awful. Everyone smelled it, but I mean seriously I'd been at work three hours by this time. It smelled like cow shit. If any one of us has brought that with us to the office we would have noticed. I met John for a drink after work and the first thing he says is "stink bomb!! Someone was totally messing with you!!" Turns out stink bombs are a thing!! You can buy them by the case on Amazon. Ok mystery solved. Only....I get home, start doing laundry, dishes, I SMELL THE COW SHIT!!!! I still smell it If everyone else hadn't at the office hadn't smelled it I'd swear I was having a series of strokes. Meantime, just so so gross. Is it in my nostrils?!

                    Have you checked the soles of your shoes?

                      It could have been worse... could have smelled like puke. Just sayin'

                      Great job on the dumbbell part! That was tough.

                        Lol YES!! More than once. Ten pm I'm bathing the dog because I got her in bed and realized SHE smelled like it. Which is so bizarre. Maybe the two things were unrelated

                          So I am super late with the answer but here it goes
                          Redline

                          How do we assign workout difficulty?
                          It's a combination of things. Most of the time we go by the workshop results and how difficult the circuit was for the test group (the majority of attendees). It's not even the exercises themselves, it's the flow of the circuit that really challenges you in most cases. When you transition from one to the other, the timing between them and the load on the muscles - it all plays a role. And sometimes yes, an easier workout is rated hard because of the move advanced moves a beginner won't be able to - or shouldn't, do. We make a judgement call on that one.

                          Naturally, some people may find some workouts easier simply because they are better at something than others, e.g, push-ups. Overall, it's a good guide. I hope this makes sense

                              When did Spartan Trials get laundry folding add-ons?

                                It was there all along, wjs. It's just so intense, that most Bees don't dare try it.
