Forgone weight training over the last few days in favour of catching up with some parkour skills.

So sunday spent three hours drilling, almost everything.

Tuesday, 6 hours of cat leaps, wall climbs and ballancing.

Today. An hour of rolls and precisions.

Ach! gone so long, but I've got a new fitness goal so I want to restart keeping a log of my progress. I'm trying to meet the minimum fitness standards for men in the army by the end of the semester. I'm not planning to enlist but I am curious how doable it is. The goal is 40 push ups in 2 minutes, 50 situps in 2 minutes. and a two mile run in 16:36. I still workout regularly but school is making my eating habits pretty bad!

Yesterday:
Two cups of coffee, a bowl of cereal, two cups of water
A cup of chili with pasta, a cup of water
a scone, a cup of coffee, a cup of water
three pieces of frozen pizza, two cups of water

Exercise: (Figuring out where I'm at right now towards my goal)
2 mile run in 17 minutes 55 seconds.
26 push ups
30 sit ups

Today:
No formal exercise. beat my way through the ravens parade on my way to class and power walked for a mile with my 20 lb backpack.

Food:
Two cups of coffee, a bagel with nutella, two cups of water
a piece of frozen pizza
having a movie night tonight, so more pizza and probably beer

Mind if I join? I've been looking for somewhere with other motivated cosplayers to post my progress and such. I'm less focused on weight training right now, and more on cardio. Currently training to run my first half marathon! Almost 1.5 months into my 3 month training (race is mid April). Ran 4 miles yesterday morning.
Today I walked part of the course with a friend to get an idea of the area. Walked a total of 6 miles. Hoping to get in 100 suitcase crunches later this evening.

I should post here....
Tuesday:
5 minute warm up 6.5 on treadmill
Squats 3x5: 225 lbs, 245 lbs, 255 lbs
Bench press 3x5: 70, 75, 80 lbs
Pull ups 3x5: 115, 121, 115 lbs (weight assisted ones)
Dips 3x5: 115, 121, 127 lbs
Pushups 3x10
Leg Press 3x5: 340, 360, 380
Single Leg Press 3x5: 180, 180, 180
Curls 3x5: 15, 15, 15
Vertical raises 3x8: 5, 5, 5
Lateral Rises 3x8: 5, 5, 5
5 Minute cool down 6.5 on treadmill.

Today is HIIT day. So I ran 3.5 miles in 30 minutes alternating between jogging (between 6 and 6.5) and running (between 7 and 8.5) every 5 minutes. That's very good for me. As for abs I did planks for 1 minute, 45 seconds, and 30 seconds, side planks for 30 seconds each side twice, 50 heel touches, and 50 side to side heel touches.

All in all I am progressing quite well. I want to be able to bench my body weight and I am getting close and I want to do squats with twice my body weight on my shoulders and I am very very close for that.

Haven't posted for a while, but I got a personal trainer to actually help me stay on track. I now do 2 days a week focused on arms, 1 day for legs and then one day with whatever my trainer has me doing...trying to balance out my body mass sucks...blasted "tree-trunk" legs from soccer...

The ladies love big quads. Can be a pain though. I no longer fit into most jeans, and I actually tore a pair of my board shorts the other day when I tensed.
