Here at 2 Fat Nerds each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed. If anyone is interested in taking part in weekly tracking, leave a comment!
Please leave a comment with your updated measurements! If you want them to be kept private for any reason, leave a comment and i’ll make arrangements!
- Total Pushup Count until fatigue
- Total Chin-Up Count until fatigue (if assisted mark what pound assisted with)
- Total Plank Time in seconds
- Total Squats within a one minute window.
Each week, members who have opted to have their weights publicly displayed for the world to see have them graphed on the main blog. It is a great way to keep track over time, and it gives a bit more accountability to your workouts. If you are interested, leave a comment!
As usual, lets dig into Adrienne's results first!
Holding even week after week is one the best ways to have sustained weight-loss. Never back-pedaling and slowly inching towards your goal is progress. Keep it up!
Now for the percentages from everyone for the week!
Congrats to Kas who posted a great first week, as well as to Laura and Mom who have shown progress too!
Anti-fat points (AFP) is a system designed to give some sort of value to each and every workout, regardless of type. It is based on metabolic-equivalent values out of the compendium of physical activities. Submit a workout, get AFP. Each week we post the totals for each person for the week. In addition, you may see the monthly AFP leader-board on the right-hand sidebar. This is meant to be a fun way to encourage competition to see who can earn the most points!
The threshold is back to 100 AFP, Green is over and Red is under. Try to get 100 AFP and turn your bar green!
The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!
As always, if you were slow to get data in, your chain will be re-instated!
Challenge results for this week:
–18 chin-ups at 64 lbs. assisted
–15 regular push-ups (dang my arms for being so tired!)
–50 squats in 1 minute
–plank for 2 minutes and 30 seconds
And to more progress along the way! Slowly getting myself used to walking further distances and staying committed to doing so.
To further progress to be made along the way! Slowly, but surely I shall push myself further to get used to walking again and keep at it.
