    Eastmans' Get "Hunting Fit" Challenge

    Nothing like a cold winter to trigger that appetite to pack on some extra "insulation". I know that after working my tail off last summer and going from 245 down to 210, I'm now back to 232. Well, it's time to get going! We're starting our diets/workouts and want to take this opportunity to invite you to be a part of it. So here's the deal: 1) Post your current weight; 2) Post your goal weight; 3) Post any other fitness goals you have; 4) Post some of your strategies of how you are going to get there. Make sure and use the same scale and weigh yourself with the same approximate clothing. We'll be putting together some prize packages on September 1 for those who have accomplished the most. This is all on the honor system, so no cheating!

    1. Current weight – 232
    2. Goal weight – 210 (I’ll be lifting weights, too, so in order to lose those 22 net lbs., I’ll have to lose about 30 lbs. of “table muscle”.
    3. Other goal – improve my overall endurance on the StairMaster over what I did last year.
    4. Strategies – 1300-1500 calories a day, hit the gym 5 days a week (For cardio, I’ll mostly hit the StairMaster because it is awesome for increasing the muscular and hiking endurance for my legs, but I’ll also mix in some running/power walking). Also going to get back into weightlifting a bit.

    1) Current weight - 232
    2) Goal Weight - 195
    3) Other Goals - Be able to complete an entire 5k running with no shin splints is one of the big ones. Make the guys I'm hunting with in Montana this fall wonder if I'm part mountain goat.
    4) Strategy - Crossfit 4-6 days a week while throwing in 1-2 runs or hikes a week. I'll also be shooting my bow quite a bit during practice and tournaments as well. I'm already in the best shape of my life, but it could be better. My diet will consist of 2000-2500 calories a day of mostly fat and protein with Saturday being a refeed day.

    MrKrabs - I noticed you posted you were having a problem with shin splints, I too used to have the same problem. There is a solution, there are specific exercises that will help...many can be done while sitting at desk (ie place feet flat on the floor, lift your toes of the floor (keeping your heal planted) as many times as you can for one minute, do this at least twice a day). The biggest difference is to change your running style. Research "pose" running on the internet, in the beginning it is a killer on your calves, but you won't have any pain in your ankles, shins, or knees. Switching styles was a complete game changer for me. Best of luck!

    1) Current - 234
    2) Goal - 205
    3) Other Goals - Compete in as many 3D shoots as possible this year. Compete in a local Sprint Triathlon in late summer. Spend more time on the hill hiking and scouting this year for elk.
    4) Strategies - Hitting the gym 3 times a week for weights and stair climber, running, biking and swimming once the weather warms up on off days from the gym. Eating much better and at regular intervals. I eat the bulk of my calories after 4 oclock now and need to eat through-out the day.

    Thanks for the info! I've been watching videos about chi running which seems very similar. I'm definitely a heel striker and step way out in front of my hips which is causing my problem.

    1) 229
    2) 200
    3) Be able to complete 120 stories (up and down 8 at a time) with a 40 lb pack in under 2 hrs.
    4) I have an 8 story parking garage at a hospital nearby where I train in their stairwell. I dont' diet much, just try to keep portions reasonable and not drink as many beerios. Hit the stairwell 2 days a week with a pack on, Run hills 2 days a week. When running flat land do interval running - sprint 2 min, walk one, 8 reps, really boosts your cardio.
