Triangles? Are these what I call diamond push-ups?

Zimmers? Tell me more!


Yeah triangles are the samething as a diamond pushup and zimmer is basically the same thing as a bodyweight lunge but you keep your hand behind your head and do them in a stationary position.  It gets it's name from an Olympic wrestler who done 1000 of them a day while training.


Cool, thanks! Did you do 1000 today?

Ps. Lunges suck! They make me cry.

I am completely embarrased how far I let myself go.



You'd better 86 that kind of talk, and I'm serious!

You are DOING something about it! For that you are the man of the hour and have NOTHING to be embarrassed about!

I can't remember how old you are, but a lot of us hit rock bottom in our early 30's. Up to that point we never had to try that hard. We could eat whatever we wanted and simply goofed off for exercise and it was enough. Things change somewhere in the late 20's and we begin to deteriorate physically because we're not keeping up with the decline. Then something happens that forces us to come to grips with how far we have let it slide.

At that point some people just give up. Other people make a conscious choice to toe the line and fix the problem. That takes guts! 

 
Nailed it right on the head.  Age 32.  I was 185-190 for the longest time (age 24-29) then the last couple years I've just let it slide.
 
I WILL hit 185 before May!  Gotta start push ups though.
 
I also just received a pedometer to count my steps.  Got 11,000 steps in today (40 minute treadmill helped).  I understand 10,000 is a good daily goal.

Here's the good news Patriot!
 
I am not alone in my belief that most healthy men should (with proper training and nutrition) reach their physical peak somewhere between 35-45 years of age! Our bodies are capable of far more than we give them credit for. Middle age requires a little more planning and recovery, but you can amaze yourself with what you can do if you work at it.
 
If we could travel in time and pit the 27 year old me against the 37 year old me, the smart money would have to be on 37. My plan is to make 47 even more formatable!
 
Here are a few examples of others who agree:

I'm not writing this to toot my own horn, but to give encouragement to you all.  You CAN do it!  Funny thing....eating well and excercising really work!!
 
My recipe:  no donuts, no ice cream, no cookies, no candy, no french fries, no fast food burgers, limited pizza (I love pizza).  Lots of Subway (healthy 12 inch sandwiches).  Treadmill 30-45 minutes 5 days per week.
 
I also have 4 other guys to keep me accountable.  We are in a Biggest Loser contest and the competition / banter is good for all of us.
