Villanous Challenges

Postby Ricky » Sun Jul 08, 2012 4:25 pm

Hey JP. Loving reading back thru the challenges. To give my joints a break from the pounding of heavy weights. Iv decided to try and centre my training around the challenges. To jazz up and already jazz happy list I'm planning to swap steele's squat challenge for power cleans. I night also swap the pressup one for weighted dips.

What i wanted to know is are there plans for anymore challenges? I'm sure uv got some interesting/crazy things in ur head that could be done with is swings farmers walks, sprints etc etc.

The people want more punishment Jp haha.

I'm interested to see the physical changes all these challnges (and training for them) can bring.

I feel like a bitch for not having completed any of them yet. They've been up for a minute.

The best time to plant an oak tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Haha too right my friend. Given that I am trying to base my trainng around them just now to give joints a break. I am looking for any suggestions on the ebst way to set up the day/week given that some could be done once a day, or once/twice a week, and others could be done several times a week.

Im also throwing in a KB swings challenge....SOmething like 50 on day one and add 10,20,30 etc (still to decide) on day and go from there.

Right now I'm doing something similar, focusing on fat loss and working on some challenges I've neglected. I'm doing 2 strength workouts a week and hitting everything else hard daily.

I do frequency method pushups and chins 6 days a week. In the past few months I've gone from doing sets of 10 sets of 10 to 16 sets of 35 a day. I hate burpees a lot, but I did make a pretty good run at them awhile back. I just started with 3 sets of 10, 6 days a week.

One of my strength workouts features a bodyweight squat for reps.

Still have some shoulder issues and am leery of the ruck, but if I were to tackle it I'd start with one mile rucks twice a week.

If you are eating well and sleeping well, you should be able to work on all 5 challenges while still doing barbell workouts.
