so you pit monkeys aren't a bunch of weak girly-men pussies, right?



If not, then I'm proposing that everyone in this place start whippin' their asses in shape right quick.

What I'm proposing for all of you is a 90 day fitness challenge. You sign up, sealing away your fate, you set yourself some goals (lose fat, gain muscle, whatever you want), you pic a "program" that you will be trying to get through for those 90 days, you state your current stats (don't lie. seriously), you take your "before" pics (nobody's going to judge you, this is a self improvement thread. Although I guess its "optional" if you have some body image issues or whatever.), we start exactly 1 week from today, and then you work like an absolute bastard for the next 90 days, then you tell us how you did. Meet your goals? stop 1 week into it and start a KFC diet instead? whatever, that's the way she goes. I started something like this on another forum and everyone got very into it. Everyone likes a little competitive motivation. Nobody likes carrying winter weight, or being a skinny weakling, so lets change that.

So who's in on this? Obviously I'm in since I'm starting the thread.

Current stats:
Height: 6'0
Weight: 178 lbs
Body Fat %: 12% (this is estimated, just what it was the last time I went for a physical)

Goal: weight increase by 5lbs, body fat decrease to 9-10%, more defined abs

Program: I'll be doing P90x2 as close to the program as is possible (did p90x about a year ago. pretty good. nothing revolutionary, but decent.), jogging 4 days a week, and boxing once a week (I would cut this, since its bordering on over-workout, but I've been boxing for a few years, its a commitment and I can't break it)


Day 1 pic: (the look of agony is because its leg day. we don't **** around and skip leg day in this dojo. there is no weakness allowed in this dojo. also yay for ectomorphs)




If none of you join me, you're gigantic pussies, so you BETTER sign up for this shit.

Some helpful stuff for you guys:

Couch to 5k:

Quote by Mistress_Ibanez
This thread is for people to sign up and post their progress in the NHS Couch to 5k running programme, which helps you train yourself to go jogging. Essentially, you download podcasts from the NHS website, and an annoying woman called Laura tells you when to run and when to walk to a background of cheesy electro music. Am I selling it? It's created by the NHS but you don't have to be British to download these workouts, anybody can download and appreciate our glorious socialised medicine

Here is how it works:

Week one
Begin with a brisk 5-minute walk, then alternate 60 seconds of running and 90 seconds of walking, for a total of 20 minutes.

Week two

Begin with brisk 5-minute walk then alternate 90 seconds of running with 2 minutes of walking, for a total of 20 minutes.

Week three
Begin with brisk 5-minute walk then two repetitions of 90 seconds of running, 90 seconds of walking, 3 minutes of running, 3 minutes of walking.

Week four
Begin with a brisk 5-minute walk then 3 minutes of running, 90 seconds walking, 5 minutes running, 2½ minutes walking, 3 minutes running, 90 seconds walking, 5 minutes running.

Week five

There are three different workouts for this week. They are as follows:

Workout 1: brisk 5-minute walk, then 5 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, 5 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, 5 minutes running.

Workout 2: brisk 5-minute walk, then 8 minutes running, 5 minutes walking, 8 minutes running.

Workout 3: brisk 5-minute walk, then 20 minutes running, with no walking.

Week six

There are three different workouts for this week. They are as follows:

Workout 1 brisk 5-minute walk, then 5 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, 8 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, 5 minutes running.

Workout 2: brisk 5-minute walk, then 10 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, 10 minutes running.

Workout 3: brisk 5-minute walk, then 25 minutes with no walking.

Week seven

Begin with a brisk 5-minute walk then 25 minutes of running.

Week eight

Begin with a brisk 5-minute walk then 28 minutes running.

Week nine

Begin with a brisk 5-minute walk then 30 minutes running.


Here's some tips from the website on getting started:

The programme is designed for beginners to gradually build up their running ability to be able to run 5K without stopping.

The pace of the nine-week running plan has been tried and tested by thousands of new runners, so you can trust the programme.

You can, however, repeat any one of the weeks until you feel physically ready to move on to the next podcast.

Structure is important for motivation, so try to allocate specific days in the week for your runs and stick to them.

Rest days are critical. A rest day in between each run will reduce your chance of injury and will also make you a stronger, better runner.

Resting allows your joints to recover from what is a high-impact exercise and your running muscles to repair and strengthen.

Some new runners starting the programme experience calf pain or sore shins (sometimes known as shin splints).

Such aches can be caused by running on hard surfaces or by running in shoes that do not have enough foot and ankle support.

Always do the the 5-minute warm-up walks as instructed in the podcasts before each run and check that your running shoes are offering good support.

You will have good runs and bad runs. Accept it and don’t spend too much time analysing the how and why. Even a bad run is good for you.

Hey this used to be my thing but I stopped doing it due to lack of interest!

In the past year of heavyish lifting I've made a lot of progress. So my main goal is to just keep doing that.

Height - 5'10"
Weight - 145
Goal - Eat more.

eh, ok.


Height 6'2"
Weight 84kg/187lbs
Goal: Build stamina and strength back, a wrecked back muscle and a succession of flu bouts have kept me off any real exercise the last two months, and ruined my progress, and I was barely eating also so a bunch of muscle mass vanished.

If this started in January when I had access to my university gym again I'd be in, but right now there's nothing but holiday dinners in my immediate future.
#16
Damn most of you are short, if I was physically able to exercise more than I currently do I would be in.
#20
In. 6 3 180 lbs no pics. Just using this to see how much I can improve my bench and overhead press.

I already hit the gym like q mother****er and have a decent physique posting just to feel better about myself.
#23
Meeee

Height: 5'3"
Weight: 118 lbs
Goal: lose fat gain muscle eat more run faster lift more look hot


edit with more stats: based on visual estimates I'm somewhere around 23% bf but probably less as I don't have much fat on my legs and they never show the legs in the comparison pics. Whatever it is, I'd like my abs to be more defined so I'm aiming at whatever percentage that will begin to happen.

my vo2 max is about 47 which is good and I'd like to see how much I can increase it by but idk when I'll ever get to do the test again, so I suppose I could just train for it anyway since it'd be helpful regardless.

My upper body strength sucks and my legs and back are much stronger so I'd like to even that out because 1) my arms just look weird and noodly compared to my legs and 2) I want to be able to carry heavy things on my own

I took a before pic but I will post it at the end of this thing with my after pic because I look really different than I did two weeks ago.


Oh and I would like to maintain/improve my flexibility. I can do side splits now but not forward splits so I will be working towards that.

I'll join, for the sake of a convenient way to motivate and also track progress But I'm not starting until xmas (probably boxing day or the day after) because I am allowed to unpack/put together my workout bench my gf has got me then. I'll still finish when everybody else does though, and may workout before then just won't be able to do certain excercises I want to do.


Height: 5'9ish
Weight: 145 lbs
Body Fat %: Don't know... will try and find out and edit.


Goals are: bulk up a little in general, but without losing definition; work on and increase size of arms (triceps in particular as I've neglected them considerably for years when not understanding about working different groups) and chest; better definition of stomach/six pack area.


May post a before pic soon, but no promises
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
#25
I suppose I'm in, although I'll probably use the E&N thread more than this.

Current stats:
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 191 lbs
Body Fat: Dunno, can't find my calipers, but probably around 12%

Goals: Increase strength and lose 2-4% bodyfat.

I'm still recovering from a knee injury though, so I doubt my progress over 90 days will be that impressive.

Day 1 picture:


Back before I hurt my knee, I was the same weight, but with a lot lower bf%.

I'd like to get back at least to the fitness level I was then. This is my progress right before I hurt my knee. I'd like to get back at least to this level. Ignore the derp-face.

I lost 4 stone earlier this year by running then kinda hit a wall, but I'm down for this. Gonna lose what's left of my moobs and belly and I'll be happy.

Current:
Height - 6'0
Weight - 176
No idea about body fat but my BMI is 23.9

I want to get down to 150 pounds, build my stamina back up to what it was and just look leaner.
Vague as shit but I don't know much about fitness and I'd appreciate any tips.

Pics soon.

150 lbs on a 6'0 frame would look damn near unhealthy skinny. I'm 178 lbs and 6'0 tall, and most people tell me I look too thin.

Well maybe bulk up at the same time as losing fat and go for 160? Is that a good idea? Apologies for my newbness.

Eh, I work out already. My goal is deadlifting 235lbs by next Thursday. I'll post the video, but won't start this 90 day thing until after vacation. Stats later.

Just to clarify, there is no official start date right?
We're all alright!
