"No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training... What a disgrace it is
for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable."
This is a spin-off from the workout thread I posted awhile back on the previous forum, though I decided to expand this into a general fitness and nutrition thread rather than a thread about just exercising.
Anyone else here working on improving their fitness lately? I've recently ordered P90X and I can't wait to try it. I've already done a few weeks of doing the abdominal exercises from descriptions I've read online and it's brutal. I also love going running every morning before the sun comes up, and I feel I've done a good job at keeping that up (even though I've missed a few days). In addition I want to try Insanity, another well-known home fitness program which I've heard nothing but high praise for.
I guess you could say I've been turning into a fitness nut lately and I guess that's what happens when you start. It's easy to give up at first but once you stick through it for at least a few weeks, you can't stop; it's addictive. It becomes a habit that you just don't want to break.
So, use this thread to talk about your fitness goals, track your progress, ask for tips, seek motivation, etc., or to just discuss health in general.
