Becoming a superhero is a common theme we speak a lot about here at Valhalla and it’s something I take EXTREMELY seriously and personally!
It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that I have spent the better part of my life always looking to learn new skills – improve upon the man I was yesterday and be at the top of my game every single day! Now I do slip and fall – but such is a beautiful part of our paths as every path has its puddles – icy patches and stretches where you run like hell – its predators and of course its shackles!
I wont go into what some of these would be on my path other then one of my shackles which has been a nagging presence in my ears for as long as I can remember – the 6 pack!!
Let’s face it we all want and strive to be in shape and I feel that I meet such a vague standard but this month I have decided that that nagging voice is going to get a taste of my will power and discipline – I’m going to show it who runs these parts of my cranium once and for all!
Thus I have designed a challenge for myself with a very clear goal – no rules as I would have done in the past (thanks to Germ for the wise words on that one) – the goal is simple – I WILL be rocking the best possible set of abs my body will allow coming into 2013!
Ya that’s right I said it – the world ain’t going to end on the 21st and I will evolve physically to being one step closer to my ideal Superhero self: Rusty! (I’ll go into the meaning of the name one day in the future but for now it can remain a topic of debate)
The challenge is simple – there are 31 days in the month of December and I have all 31 days to complete a minimum of 10,000 ab crunches – which averages out to 323 a day! I won’t just be doing “crunches” but doing any lactic acid spewing – makes you want to die – has you screaming uncle – ab exercises!
This idea stems from the concept of “10k hours” which theorizes that if someone does 10,000 hours of anything that they become a leading expert in such a field! So because my logic is a little “cray” I believe that if I do 10,000 ab crunches in a month that I will propel myself to my goal!
