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?
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
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.
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.
Tuesday: Cardio X (45 minute cardio workout)
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.
"I remember when I started to get chest hair when I was around sixteen. My mother spotted it and said I was fast becoming a man. My dad was hairy all over, as was his father. I was proud as a peacock when my mother said…"
"Funny, the gay guy I know who was so not the stereotype gave me the impression he was gay just so he could piss people off by calling them homophobes, especially his father who he said he hated.
Like you, I avoided him because it was unpleasant to…"
"I know I already said Don Vito, another one would be The Creature from Mary Shelley Modern Prometheous (Frankenstein).

I'm considering getting a punching bag for Christmas. I don't know why, just seems like something is enjoy. Come home after a long day at work, ease some frustration, get a work out in maybe?It's just that I really have no idea what I'm doing, I feel like its ignorant to think all it is going to take is knowing how to hurl a fist at an inanimate object. Is it all that much of a workout (among other things.) It should also be noted that I'm quite the novice when it comes to fitness. Is it worth…See More
"I agree, Ken. The stigmatization of body hair is a trend that tries to downgrade masculinity. Body hair is uniquely masculine and feminists despise anything that sepeates us from women. I shaved my chest one time in college and I hated it."
