*Is* there an app for that???

Its a new year in less than 24 hours and I'm one of the many people who will decide to try and improve their health/fitness for the new year. Odds on I'll probably spend my first morning of this new philosophy with a hangover, but I'll worry about that when I get to it. I have a question for you. I ...

Re: Daily quota

200 push-ups a day is quite doable, but probably not a good idea on day 1 if you aren't already doing high rep push-ups. I'd start with four sets of 20 and work up, adding a set when appropriate. That said, if you're going to put in this much time, there are more useful things to do than vast numbe...

Daily quota

I'm thinking about making myself do at least a specific amount of press ups/sit ups per day. I'm planning on splitting them up over the course of the day, say sets of 20. How many do you think I should be doing per day? I reckon I can probably do 200 of each over a day, is this a realistic number to...

Re: Goals and Rewards

This sounds like when I was younger and I would get stickers for helping out around the house. Maybe you could make your social calendar dependant on your exercise calendar? For example if you're going to the cinema at the weekend, you need to cash in X number of stickers. This way the stickers beco...
