Men—
It's an experiment. I'd like to get one or more AoM gentlemen to engage in an experiment. The idea is, we share our personal fitness and nutrition goals for the coming week on a daily basis, and check in every night if possible to share what we did and keep one another on task, and encourage in our efforts.

Having a written weekly goal as well as a little more accountability could do us all good. Is anybody interested in this?

I'm in.

I'm currently doing a modified one-month round of P90X/P90X+. Here's my remaining week:

Wed: Back and Biceps, Ab ripper X
Thurs: Intervals Plus
Fri: Chest Shoulders and Triceps, Ab Ripper X
Sat: Back and Biceps
Sun: Yoga

This morning I knocked out Chest Shoulders and Triceps.
Thanks for jumping in, Scott.

Here's mine, hope it's all right:

Tuesday: 30 minutes; pushups, abs, chest/shoulders
Wednesday: tennis, pushups, one hour + my best upper body workout
Thursday: bike to school and back (~20 miles), abs
Friday: 40 minutes general workout
Saturday: bike or run out at the lake
Sunday: rest and reassess

Until later.
Ugh. Got caught up studying for tomorrow's midterm and put off my exercise. I'll jump on it tomorrow. Sorry Scott.
No worries. Just bring it extra hard tomorrow.

This morning was Back and Biceps. My biceps are still tired even though the workout ended three hours ago...

Ab Ripper is up tonight.
All right, did rather a lot of tennis and then pounded out a workout that I'm proud of. Might go back for more a little later tonight.

Looking forward to tomorrow's! Getting my bike stuff ready at the moment.
I'm about to leave for vacation before I go back to school, but Monday I did squat singles at 295#. Today I'm going to do some bench, then triples on deadlift (~340#).
Yeah boy, good to have you with us, short though it may be. Good for you. Have a nice vacation, we'll be here when you get back.
Today's Accountability:

This morning was Interval X Plus. It's a 40 minute interval cardio workout. Fifteen moves, each done at three different levels of intensity. Once through 1 - 15, go back and do 15 - 1. That's an intense 40 minutes, believe me.

Tomorrow is Chest, Shoulders and Triceps, plus Ab Ripper X.

Keep it going, everyone!
Did mine and more! I threw in a little work on my pullups for OCS although I was a little sore after yesterday's wonderful beating.

And the bike ride got cut short by about 3 miles when I got a flat. And then had to walk about that half that way until I finally hitched a ride. All in all, a good day!

All right Scott, give 'em hell!
Had to break up my workout into two non-continuous parts. Since I'm home I banged out a lot of pullups throughout the day, and I'll do a few last sets before I go to bed.
Ok, so here's my plan for the coming week. Bear in mind that I've been going non-stop, six days a week, since February. I think I've earned a bit of a breather.

Today: Rest
Tuesday: Cardio X (45 minute cardio workout)
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Yoga
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Kenpo Cardio X
Sunday: Rest or yoga

Next week, I will be starting a three-month round of P90X+. I had initially planned to do a month of modified workouts (this week would have been week three of that month), but I need the mental break. I figure a week of lighter work will ensure my tank is full for next Monday. Plus, it's not like I'll be doing absolutely nothing.

Peter -- how's the arm?
Cardio X is in the books. It felt good to get back in the game.

Come on guys...stick with it!

I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
