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.

There's been a lot of talk about globalism lately, so I want to get people's opinions on whether it's a good thing or not (it's not necessary to read and respond to the following diatribe, a simple answer to this question would be appreciated).From my perspective, it's unequivocally a good thing that happens to have bad consequences for some people, but benefits the same people in some ways as well. I understand that a lot of small, one-industry towns are dying, partially as a result of…See More
