The Second Org Fitness Thread of 2017

Fitness thread #1 timed out after sixty days of awesomeness. By my calculations, the participants on that thread have done about 15,000 push-ups; 25,000 hula hoops; 250 Burpees; pushed around more than 50,000 pounds of various weights; and have wrecked one knee while chasing after Scarlett Johannson (he won't admit it but we all assume that's how it happened). The good news is that PJ's knee does NOT require surgery, only rehab.

So here we go, blasting into the all-important NEXT TWO MONTHS OF PHYSICAL FITNESS. These may very well be the most important two months of the year. Indeed, they may be the most important two months of your LIFE. Why?

Because March and April are the last two months before it either IS bathing suit weather, or is ALMOST bathing suit weather. Who am I kidding? What with the global warming, it IS going to be bathing suit weather everywhere by May 1 - even Down Under!

So, RIGHT NOW is the time to GET. IT. ONNNNNNNNNNNN. If you've done well in January and February, then you will be absolutely awesome by the time Global Warming Summer arrives.

If you're a little late getting going, you still have a solid sixty (60) days before Global Warming Summer gets here. Put your mind to it and you can do awesome things in 60 days!

In fact, I'm going to be awesome right now. I'm heading to the gym! Our big rodeo starts tomorrow and for me, it's pretty much 20 straight days of drinking, eating fried food, and riding a horse. None of those are conducive to fitness, so I have to be diligent in the gym or I will look really bad when Global Warming Summer gets here!

So let's GET. IT. ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks luv!! Layla on board and hooping with my 5lb hoop! Still striving for at least 10K/day, 10 flights of stairs/day, and 2 liters H2O/day. Wgt very comfy between 115-119.

Goal: Keep the core tight. Work on leg strength with the stairs. Keep myself hydrated. Perhaps add in some upper arm work for definition.

The Way Out There Goal: Haven't done a split in years!!! But need to work on stretching without injuring!

I've been hitting the gym hard, hope you have too!

I'm not quite as strong as I was, though. I didn't quite get 306 up on the benchpress Sunday. Our machine has independent arms that you stack plates on. I blasted the right side up, but couldn't get the left side quite over the hump and up. Weird!

I'm about to head out to the gym right now and I guess I'll do a lot of left-handed work, LOL.

Hey man, it's March 21! Where are your updates?!? Are you too buzy killing it in your work outs to post here? Did we screw up by making this a sticky and thus never looked at when perusing active threads? Enquiring minds want to know!

I have been drinking a whole bunch (and I don't mean water), but I've also been hitting the gym regularly. All part of the plan...

Yesterday I walked up 18 flights of stairs. First time I'd done the stairs in a couple months. It was awesome! I rewarded myself for doing that with a full plate of lobsster ravioli, followed by a slice of chocolate mousse cake last night. Again, all part of the plan!

I was so focused on that pic that I missed the "10 flights of stairs/day"! Are you walking actual stairs, or using a stair machine?

Actual stairs! But not all at the same time (yet)!! Too cheap to buy a stair machine.

Oh man, thank goodness the rodeo is over. It was EPIC but I drank enough to float a battleship! Luckily, I was able to hit the gym 3 or 4 times during the last 3 weeks, and maintained the 100 push-ups almost every day. I haven't done any push-ups today, but then again I think I drank 2 bottles of wine last night, so may I be forgiven for missing the push-ups?

OK, time to get REAL! Time to lay off the alkyhaul, the sweets, and whatever. I have been really good with portion size this year, so I'm not too far behind the 8 ball when it comes to the goal of Six Pack Abs.

The goal is to be rippling down there by June 1. Here we go!
