youve got it figured out yla
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

few buddies and I are going to do the soft 75 day challenge with our own spin


Eat a little better only eat out once a week
Do one 45–60-minute workout every day. A "workout" can be a simple walk, for active recovery.
Drink at least three liters of water each day.
Read for 15 minutes a day
Drink(booze) only socially
Each of us putting in a $100 and if we fail divvy it up and if we all fail the moolah goes towards new gym equipment.

Jeez 3+ liters of water a day, you're gonna hit your "workout" quota just getting up and walking to the bathroom to pee 800 million times a day.

Thought the board would want to know that WOD this morning involved a total of 60 overhead squats and 90 wall ball shots. I was having trouble safely negotiating stairs afterwards as my quads were balking at carrying out any additional instructions they were getting from my brain.

that sounds icky.. last one to do that to me was strength: E3min for 18min 2 FS followed immediately by 4 BS at 85% of FS max. WOD: Death by thrusters (95#)
legs felt dumb for over a week

75# and 20#. I'm not a superfit fitcat.

Thrusters are a physical and psychological challenge. They really get to me.

Been in my first real rut for as long as I can remember. I've always gone to the gym. I'm a weirdo and can just go and do the same routine and just get it done. I change it up some times just to prevent a bit of boredom, but its never really an issue. I even transitioned to home workouts effectively and got in better shape by adding Peloton to my weight routines. For some reason, I am struggling bad lately. Started about 3 weeks ago. I really struggle with a complete break and almost have to do something, so when I started struggling, I backed off and just did short bike rides and little to no weights or vice/versa. I then added back some pull ups and push ups to a short Peloton ride. I gave myself the long weekend in hopes I could jump back in today and I'm still struggling to to get motivated. I basically forced myself on the bike and then did nickel and dimes (pulls/pushes) on the minute for 10 minutes. That is basically my go to, "rough ridin' do something" routine. Maybe I need a complete break for a few days? Help me snap out of it guys.

also those of you that can workout by yourself are amazing.. I can every once in a while but definitely not near the intensity or talk myself into skimping out on things I was going to do

I just procrastinated by watching that video. Seriously, that was a good video.

I just hop on my bike and ride during the nice weather. Back to the gym in November.

Tightened up the carbs and extended the ride time last two weeks. Dropped a quick 5 pounds. Annual insurance physical in a October. Need to be at fighting weight for the good rates.

Ha Jocko is great. If you have kids, read them Way of the Warrior Kid. My kid loved it and so did I. David Goggins calling me a bitch and cursing at me also helps a bit.

I don’t find Jocko inspiring but I am also in a rut. I don’t have a workout group and mostly just ride the peloton.  One thing that I have found inspiring is working out weight goals or exercise challenges with the wife. It helps to hold each other accountable.

There are some really good 10-20 minute yoga videos on youtube that I need to get back into doing with the wifey in the mornings. You should try that as well.

We do some short HIIT a couple times a week.

Nice. If you’re ever feeling up to some free weights or cardio I do have some and a small shop at my house I always need motivated to workout in on the weekends

Here’s my routine.  Not recommended.

Sign up for a stupid race in a fun place
Run a bunch until I get sick of it a few weeks before race
Question why I would do this mid-race
Start dreaming about the next one and repeat

ha, i've thought about this. My problem is....I rough ridin' hate running. Like despise it. Its weird because I love being and working out by myself. I don't want to deal with anyone else while doing it so I've always put my jams on, did my work, and got out. You would think going on a run would be ideal for me, but I just can't do it. Just to try and break my brain, I tried just doing a mile at the end of every day thinking I could break through and get used to it. I absolutely dreaded it every day. I did about 4 days a week for a month or so and gave up.
