I remember benedictveritas asking if people could help him out with keeping on track for this workout.

I thought "heck, i need that, too." So I thought if I came into this thread and checked in after every work-out, I'd also see all the folks who were kicking my butt at keeping on schedule. so...

I'm Mitchell, I'm trying to do a M-W-F workout schedule with the NerdFitness Beginner Bodyweight Routine , and I'm terrible at keeping schedules.

Check in!

I was wondering how long before a thread like this popped up!

Im in too!

If you're not in the arena getting your ass kicked too, I'm not interested in your opinion.

I'm in! Also, If you have a smart phone, I highly recommend the MyFitnessPal app. You can use it to track your macronutrient data as well as your workouts while encouraging each other socially. It's a cool and helpful app.

My Schedule:

Mon. Chest/Biceps

Tues. Back/Triceps

Wed. Cardio (Running, Martial Arts, etc)

Thurs. Shoulders/Traps

Fri. Legs/Abs

Sat. Cardio

Sun. Rest

3 exercises per muscle group starting with large movements to small with 45 seconds rest between sets. 4 sets, last set to failure.

Eat 6 meals a day. 3000 calories/day. 30-40g Protein with every meal. Most of my carbs in the morning and afternoon, with very little at night.

So far, I'm up to 230 lbs with 16% body fat. I want to gain 10 more lbs and get my body fat down to at least 12%.

I'm in, I started my schedule last week funnily enough so not too far ahead.

I'm doing a 5 day per week cycle... 3 days of cardio, 2 of strength. I'm hoping to incorporate 1 session of martial arts (including Shinkendo and Aikido) as well, if the guy who runs the classes ever actually gets back to me.

Got my cardio done today.

For Martial Arts training at home, may I suggest Master Chong's YouTube channel for an excellent video series on taekwondo forms using the old Palgwe patterns rather than the modern ones. The Palgwe Poomsae were based on Japanese Kata and Chinese Kung Fu. I like them for foundational exercise and moving meditation far better than the current accepted Taekwondo curriculum. Here is a link to the Red belt form which is an advanced form. You can search through his channel for lower forms all the way to white. His introduction videos to each belt gives excellent insight to what core lessons should be focused on at each belt level. My uncle, Tom Tehonica, is a good friend of Master Chong and also my Grandmaster. Together they are leading the American Taekowndo Team to the Gold in the upcoming Olympics. My uncle also trains the US Army Mountain Rangers in hand-to-hand combat.

I hope these help!

Did S2 today, and S1+ cardio yesterday.

I'll use a nomenclutre of S1,S2,W1,W2,W3 to represent my two types of summer workout, and three types of winter workout. My gym is in my garage and has no aircon, so in summer it gets too hot to do too much. Its one of those Total Gym machines for S1, and just dumbell's hitting shoulders for S2. I use a free weight 3 day split in winter because I can spend more time and effort in my 'gym'.

I'm experimenting with bringing dairy back into my diet and I must say I think it's improved results a lot (pity it gives m a bit of dermatitis).
