New Feature: Fitness Friday

September 25, 2009 Leave a comment

Don’t get the wrong impression of me, I don’t mean to be selfish but this post is going to be all about me.  That was just a quick FYI for you.

I’m going to try something here and we’ll see if it works, if I don’t post anything like this next week then everyone will know the idea (and myself, as the originator of the idea) will have been a failure.  I’m going to start a new “feature” on this blog called Fitness Friday partially because one day I hope to look like this:

300

Not only will I have an 8-pack and overly large pectorals, I will also have the strength to fight off a thousand nations of the Persian Empire as they descend upon me…but I digress.

Even more importantly, though, Fitness Friday is alliteration, which makes it more fun.

So what does Fitness Friday entail?  I’m going to start a new workout regimen that will replace my current workout plan that consists of sword fighting on Wii Sports Resort and dancing poorly at traffic lights.  I’m going to replace it with two different plans they are:

I know the pictures may look a little “soft” what with the light colors and the girl doing the push-ups, but fear not, for there is absolutely nothing girly about being able to pound out 100 push-ups.

This morning I did the initial test for both of the programs; I was able to do 81 sit-ups (which are really crunches the way they have you do them) which put me in the “excellent” category, and 41 push-ups which put me at “level 4.”  Those numbers mean 2 things:

1) I am a beast!

2) I am supposed to start at week 3 of the 6 week program because I am such a beast.

So here we go it’s Friday today so I’ll start week 1 on Monday and next Friday I’ll post how it all went. I also found a pull-up challenge that I may try to throw in with this too, but we’ll have to see how I feel after the first week or so. And if all else fails I can always fall back on this exercise plan:

That’s all I’ve got today, have a great weekend everybody

Hello world!

This is the first of potentially numerous blog posts.  Seriously we’re talking at least a couple dozen posts of pure unadulterated awesome. Maybe even more who knows.

To kick this off in style I’m going to answer some questions that I’m sure are running through everyone’s head right now.  I’d like to call in a F.A.Q. time but none of theses questions have been Asked let alone Frequently Asked so We’ll have to refer to this as a F.A.Q. section. Lets do it…

What are you going to blog about?

I’d like to answer that question with another question: what will I NOT blog about? as far as starting out goes nothing will be off limits.  You my friend are looking at a no-holds-barred blogging event of the century taking place every time you check out this spot.  One day the topic could be midgets, the next day it could be awkward Hawaiian Punch flavors, later on in the week it could be a blog about current life happenings.  The sky is the limit here really…well not really more figuratively but you get the gist.

How often will you be updating?

How should I know, I’ll post whenever I feel like it.  Hopefully at least once a week, maybe daily, maybe bi-daily…maybe and this would just be crazy tri-daily!

Do I need to know who you are to understand this blog?

No, although if you don’t know who I am I may assume you are a stalker.

How can I find out if there is a new post?

Well chances are I’ll tweet about it and I may even post something on facebook but thats only if I’m feeling really inspired. If you’re really nerdy you can always do the whole rss feed thing or something though…I think, I’m not really sure how all that works.

Those are all the questions I can think of, if you have any feel free to comment, or don’t if you don’t want to.
