    Easy Abs 21
    Core Streng Day 18 (level 1)
    The Daily Dare (2minutes raised arm circles) no EC though hahaa
    and today's workout, no regrets (level 1)
    Maybe logging it daily while doing it is actually less work, at least as long as I am doing them in my office i'll see what feels better
    Thank you Anek !

    Edit: adding 8km of Walking to the day

    Alright!
    The week is almost over and I'll post my first update

    Progress:
    Core Strength (Level 1, sometimes 2) Day 5, 8, 10, 16 (t'was so hard Q_Q), 17
    Easy Abs Challenge 15 - 20
    Daily Dares: 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th

    Workouts:
    Chest and Back Light
    Pistol Squat Prep
    Last Minute 2x
    Unplugged
    Over 9000

    Other
    Pushups 2x 3 Sets -- currently only Bottom to Top, not pushing up yet, still building the strength for that

    Regarding my goal of a proper first pushup:
    Currently I am doing sets of pushups in the proper plank position but only from top to bottom down. My problem is that I've done knee pushups before but with the elbows sticking out so now I am relearning it. What is also awesome now is that it hurts my wrist less!
    But it still feels like I am far away from my goal x_x

    Else this week felt nice! Every morning I put together my workout and I always do it in my lunch break. I really dislike working out in mornings and evenings I often have appointments that would disrupt my workout schedule. I feel really accomplished that I have a routine that I can stick to, and I really look forward to my workout every day.

    Edit:
    Oh and I am also going strong on not drinking alcohol 2021!

    Awww everyone, thanks for the warm welcome!! It's amazing how this inspiration and motivation from this community is snowballing. I'm hyped to workout, and this hype has already introduced others into homeworkouts or trying out darebee. I'm so excited of what the future holds!!

    started a topic My Journey

    My Journey

    Welcome to my journey!

    I've encountered Darebee at the beginning of the first 2020 lockdown but wasn't able to grasp it or make it a habit. Now with 2021 my wife and I my determination to take things in our own hands and with the great help of friends I've almost worked out everyday since beginning of this year!
    I'm very grateful that Darebee in its wholeness... it's a resource and community that I can wholeheartedly support. The goal, the messages, the workouts for really all fitness levels, the warmth of this community, fellow geeks... This is constantly firing me up!!!
    And in case you're looking for a developer (little web, gamedev, server admin..) hit me up!!

    My first goal that I would like to reach is one proper push up! Like in my life I've been able to do pushups before but never in proper form. While I work on that, I'd like to one-up my general fitness, get a little leaner, and work on my core and legs to prepare for the possibility to play Ultimate this year again (we'll see if and when the lockdown allows this).

    I'll plan to update this training log every weekend to recap what I've accomplished over the week! Right now, I'm in the middle of:

    - Core Strength
    - Spellbound: I'm really enjoying this one. I do it together with 3 friends so we're not really fast in the progress. But we read out the texts together and it's just overall super awesome to see a RPG inspired workout!
    - Easy Abs
    - Pushup Challenge: every other day I do 3 sets of pushups in different easier variations

    Thanks for reading and welcome on this ride
