    It is a bit of an obscure character but I think there might be a couple people who recognize this certain girl from a game with a boomerang challenge :D

    I just always hate to see those girls that missed the memo that lack of costume is not a costume and I certainly don't want to be associated with them.

    Dammit, now I have to do research. And well said on the lack of costume.

    Glad to see so many people sticking around for the long haul. On the other hand, you all are making the challenge really difficult.

    Only one more week! Must... hold on... to top... 10...

    On the other other hand, dropped ~13 pounds in 20 days (- a good bit of water weight, I imagine), so off to a good start! Thanks for everyone kicking ass with the fitness. Always more fun to do things as a group.

    Squirrel Challenge: Be able to squat your own weight at least 5 reps by the start of PAX. Prize... Beer? A button? TOG claims to have mad photoshop skills, maybe we can get him to whip up a muscled squirrel image for a button or something.

    Anyone want to join the challenge?

    Just tried this morning after my workout and I don't mean to brag, but daaaaaang, that was easy! My trainer was even there to make sure I was doing it properly and everything. He told me a good goal is 1.5x my body weight. Heck, I can probably shoot for double my weight by PAX!

    @BombClancy
    I'm also planning on baring abs for PAX, which is a great motivation for working out! Hope to see you there!

    Go for double! Go for widowmakers!

    I second the widowmakers. Personally shooting for the advance widowmaker (1.5xBW (295lbs) 20 reps) by PAX.

    It is now my job to lug around wire harnesses for minivans that weigh anywhere from 10-50 pounds. Worst part is, the farther away the part is the heavier it is. Gonna get fit from it though. x.x

    I'll give it a shot. 295 will probably kill me, but I can try for 175lbs, 20 reps by PAX.

    Would anyone be up for a get together Thursday night before PAX starts? Maybe we can go somewhere with healthy food or something, since we are all spending so much virtual time together anyway.

    I'd be up for it. Might be kinda out of the way but I've heard good things about this place: http://www.afktavern.com

    I'd love to go. I also put my vote in for a place that allows all ages, as I am sadly only 20.

    I'd love to meet up too, but I'll be going to the dinner and the bar crawl (definitely NOT healthy). Any locals willing to meet, well, locally? Local to Seattle, I mean.

    I'd be interested in a meetup. However, Thursday will probably be pretty awful for me schedule-wise as I'm already hitting the MMT and then the dinner, and then the pre-pax gaming night assuming that materializes again.

    I kind of thought that might be a problem. Lord knows we all pack as much activity in that time as possible. Is anyone going to the Post-PAX Party? We could have a round there.

    Arco is still in the planning stages. As of right now all I know is that it will be a Jillian's again this year, and he is trying to get bands there again.

    And a winner is GoneCross!

    Runner-ups are myself, Mogs and Teenychicka.

    Congratulations to everyone who placed in the top four, and thanks to everyone else for participating! I can't believe our group has over 1million points.

    Thanks for the challenge Payne, it was great for motivation. I also think a meetup would be fun before, after, or during PAX.

  • vgcvgc Registered User regular
    I attended a hapkido/judo seminar on Saturday and that really boosted me up like 5 slots. Alas, it wasn't enough to secure the top 3 or 4 :(

    Oh well! It was a fun challenge!

    Thanks Payne for putting this challenge and group together. It has really helped me get past my old 3x10, ho-hummish workout I've had for years and really push myself. I'm now stronger then I was in my "high school" days.

    I've also really loved seeing everybody making progress towards there goals. Keep it up people. PUSH!!!

    Back on ze treadmill after an unintentional break for a couple weeks. Was busy getting my shit packed up for a move to Juneau. On the plus side, it took my way longer than usual to even start sweating and breathing hard so that break may have ended up accidentally helping. This also means that it's probably time to start introducing variable inclines into my run.

  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    Ladies and gents, I do believe that I have just set a personal record for most points in a workout (minus judo).

    Man, I have quite a beef with Fitocracy lately. I just did one of the hardest workouts I have done since high school wrestling practice, and Fit gave me less than 400pts. I can get that running 4 miles, with WAY less effort. They need to fix the Crossfit workouts. I really don't think they take into account the intensity and speed the workouts are done at. Also, Payne... you are a freaking animal; how long did that take you? Wow.

    Rocko Is NOT Amused!
  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    Honestly, too long. Like 2 and a half hours which is way longer than anyone should be in the gym. I was making up for lost time and I don't think I'll ever hit that high again. :P

    Guys, we need to step our game up. It is very not cool that the East guys are keeping their page on the front this close to Prime... we must do more, share more, whatever it takes to keep in the forefront.

    I think it's cause we do most of our talking on the Fitocracy page. :P

    EDIT: Also, I want to see everyone complete a quest by the end of the week. I don't care whether it's hard or easy, I want to see everybody have a little rocketship on the feed. Let's do it!

    Hoping to complete the Untz Untz Untz quest tomorrow night ;) Also, running out of quests that I do without needing to start using barbells.

    I just joined the fitocracy challenge(user: littleicarus), and I'm gonna try to do the squat x bodyweight thing. I'm currently squatting 105-115(depending on the day), up from 85 less than 2 month ago. That means adding about 50 to my squat. Doubt I can do it, but I'll try!

    Doubt doesn't apply here. You've got it!

    Agreed! Make sure you're eating enough (and the right things) to make those gains. My stretch-goal for PAX is 225 on squat and deadlift. With how things have been going and how often I up weights, I might achieve it the week after PAX for the squat, but we'll see. I'm confident I'll make the deadlift happen in time.

    Versuskid, where did your 21 challenge go? Took me 25'40" to complete. A lot harder then I expected. Must of sweat at least 2lbs off.

    I really need to plan a day to do my 21 challenge... but man, I hate burpees.
