My Push up & Chin up Challenge!

As most of you know from my videos, I love doing push ups and chin ups. Not only that, but I like outdoing myself every time I do them.

My ultimate goals:
*PUSH UPS-100
*CHIN UPS-50

As for my present goals, I'd like to be able to do 50 push ups to out do my previous 30, and 10 chin ups to out do my previous 5.

I also want you all to know, how I was never able to do those exercises. One day, I just decided that I wanted to be able, at the very least, complete " 1 " push up & chin up... And here I am today very much beyond that point. So, if I can do them, anyone can. You just have to put your mind to it, and tell yourself that NOTHING is impossible! There will be a number of times you try, but still aren't able, but that does not mean you should quit, because one day, out of nowhere, you will suddenly perform the exercise, and you will feel so incredible about yourself!

SO, don't give up, be strong, and don't let your body tell you what you can or can't do!

NYC MARATHON TRAINING!

I've decided to run in the New York City Marathon of 2009! (which is a little over 10 months away)
By that time, I must be able to run 26 miles without passing out half way to the finish line.
Until then, I'm going to train my ass off, and run in other various 5k, 10k, half marathons, etc.
As you can see, I'm telling the world, which means, I'm going to be blogging my training from this past tuesday (which is when I officially started training for the marathon), till the day of the race, November 1, 2009.
It's going to be really tough to train for, so I'm bringing everyone along for the ride.
I'll jot down my training detail from food to exercise, running, racing, and ranting about the whole experience.
There will also be videos of my improved push ups, chin ups, and other exercises.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Take care and Tough it Out!

From YouTube to Blogger...

Hey there!

I've been getting several requests for more fitness videos and my exercise/diet routine.

So I decided to create a blog where I will post my meals, exercise regimens, photos, and videos.

I will hopefully be posting regularly, so check back and enjoy!

Take Care, and Stay Strong!
