I started the "Insanity" workout series.

Although I still feel pretty stupid doing workout videos on my living room, I have to admit that they're pretty good. It's based on max interval training and really gets your heart rate up. At the peaks of each interval I'm consistently 175-180bpm, which is pretty solid for living room exercising.

I plan on creating a hybrid schedule, mixing inworkouts from Insanity with workouts from p90x. My initial plan is to alternate weeks, but I might create a more complicated schedule where I mix the two systems in during each week. We'll see.

Umm....I like being strong and lean rather than weak and fat, and I like being able to run around and play sports without losing my breath in the first 10 seconds. Not too complicated.

Interesting... I am definitely sorry to hear that. Thankfully, you can assure yourself you are done with the GMAT and not worry about it but it is pretty strange that the dream has stuck around.

Just wait till you get into the bschool.

P.S. AV did not start working out seriously until AFTER he got into Ross - I think the stress of the application season is really distracting from pretty much anything else.

It's great to see that we still have people going strong with health and fitness goals!

Although I haven't updated my activity log until today, I've been getting bigger and stronger every week at Ross. I was able to hit all of my 2011 goals and I've got a lot of momentum heading into 2012. My progress over that past nine months has been incredible.

I don't have the specific numbers available right now, but I'll take a guess at my nine month progress (lots of newbie gains).
  • Lean Muscle Mass: +15 lbs.
  • Bench press: from ~155 lbs. to 255 lbs. (+100 lbs.)
  • Squat: from 155 lbs. to 345 lbs. (+190 lbs.)
  • Deadlift: from 155 lbs. to 400 lbs. (+245 lbs.)
  • Dumbbell Curls (8-rep max): from 25 lbs. to 45 lbs. (+20 lbs.)
  • Tricep Pushdown (8-rep max): from 60 lbs. to 160+ lbs. (+100 lbs.)
  • Pull-ups (8-rep max): from bodyweight? to bodyweight + 50 lbs.
  • Dips (8-rep max): from bodyweight? to bodyweight + 50 lbs.

I've been a lot more focused over the past 2 months and I think my gains are accelerating again. My advice to aspiring bodybuilders: (1) Lift heavy and often - no one ever curled 100 lb. dumbbells with tiny arms; (2) Eat, then eat some more.

Pretty solid numbers Av, especially on the barbell lifts. I see so few people in the gym here who know (or even care) how to lift properly. I can count on one hand the number of people I've seen doing deadlifts, and there may be 3 or 4 people who squat properly and safely to full depth. I have had a few guys in my class ask me for advice for getting started on strength training, so there's still hope. I'm just hoping all the New Years Resolution crowd sticks to machines and elliptical machines for their month-long efforts at getting in shape so they're not clogging up the only two squat racks here.

What time do you guys typically work out during the week? Especially those with jobs. I usually have work from 9 to 6. I also have a one hour commute there and back (ugh Los Angeles . . .). I feel like the gyms are always packed after 6 p.m. I'm thinking of working out before work, I imagine it would be hell the first week though

I do group training classes, so my options are limited in terms of when I can come. I picked the 7:30 PM (which is the only time I can really make).
I would not be able to do 6 AM since I am so wiped out then. I never even tried the 6 am but I know there is a good sized crowd then too.

I have similar stats to you, 5'10'' @ 190 lbs ~12% bodyfat. Been trying intermitted fasting and reverse pyramid scheme with good results so far. Got the routine and diet from leangains, 4 weeks in and lost 4 lbs and gained strength in all lifts by 10-30lbs.

My biggest weakness is squats at 295 currently, cant seem to get to the next 10 lbs range without sacraficing form on my ATG squats.
