Oh yeah, forgot to add this comment here. Got P90X the other day. I can't do the everyday thing like it asks you, but I'm going to do them when I have a 2 hour window as often as possible. Did the first day a few days ago and yeah, it kicks your ass.

Got on a scale today after noticing I had to tighten my belt another notch. Down 12 pounds over the last month and a half or so. I can't be sure if it's the exercise/eating healthier, or my Metroid-brand loafers making me lighter. :-? Probably the loafers ;-D

I heard that. And you're lucky I don't Clubber Lang your loafers all over my Ivan Drago and feed them to Adrian's pet turtle. Now leave me alone. I got to go punch a slab of beef.

Anyone here familiar with/go to LA Fitness? They just built a huge one less than a mile from my house this past year and I just got an email from HR that we can sign up there at a discounted rate ($29/month) as part of the corp wellness program.

I can do 54 push-ups in two minutes. I'm trying to raise that number. I do push-ups on Mondays and Fridays. Each day consists of four sets of two minutes. I do two sets of regular push-ups and two sets with the perfect push-up doohickeys.

Pull-ups and sit-ups are good to do as well. They'll help you with your push-ups. I can do 72 sit-ups in two minutes and 16 pull-ups. You just want to make sure to do them on separate days.

I also do weight training, but that's more for aesthetics. Running is a part of my routine, too, but that has little to do with upper-body strength, so I'll leave it out.

For anyone that cares, my work-out routine (sans the weight training) is:

Monday - Push-ups (4 sets of 2 minutes)
Tuesday - Sit-ups (4 sets of 2 minutes)
Wednesday - Pull-ups until failure
Thursday - Sit-ups (4 sets of 2 minutes)
Friday - Push-ups (4 sets of 2 minutes)
Saturday - Off
Sunday - Off

If you want to incorporate weight training for your back, shoulders, and biceps, I'd suggest doing them on Wednesday along with the pull-ups. Just listen to your body and make adjustments as you go along. I would also suggest investing in a set of perfect push-ups. Since the handles rotate, they force you to stabilize yourself and incorporate different muscles.

If you do care about running, here's the set-up I'm currently using:

Monday - Jog 4 miles
Tuesday - 15 sets of 30 60s (Sprint for 30 seconds, walk for 60.)
Wednesday - Jog 4 miles
Thursday - 15 sets of 30 60s (Sprint for 30 seconds, walk for 60.)
Friday - Jog 2 miles, Run 2 miles
Saturday - Off
Sunday - Off

Again, listen to your body and don't start off too fast. Maybe start out with 1-mile jogs and 5 sets of 30 60s. Increase the distances/number of sets as you go along.

I'm not a personal trainer, but this is the routine I've crafted over time and currently use.

I haven't done this program since April and have gained 7 pounds since then. :-{

Karoz - are you in the Army? Your 2 minute time standard is the same we use.
