    Alright here's the deal, pick a goal and you can't shave untill you complete it.

    My goal(s)

    Bench 225lbs (prime 240)
    20 Chinups straight (prime 30)
    6:30 Mile (prime 5:43)

    In my prime (yea im 16 and im not as fit as i was last year) these were a sinch, a few broken bones and marijuana can do that:bang: (never again i say)

    Doesn't matter how long it takes, you just can't shave:gl:

    Is double posting bad?

    I was able to do 20 chinups (or whatever you want to call them) today so thats crossed off. I tried running today on a tredmill, to be fair i was wearing terrible shoes for running and i had just worked out- but i blew chunks.

    I was able to run .3 miles at 10mph before wheezing uncontrolably and geting ankle pain, i probly could of gotten .5 miles but i didnt want to do any damage- i will wear ankle supports next time.

    Benching around 195, ive been working on my form so it shouldn't be a suprise if i can put up around 205-210

    I wasn't saying you couldn't do it, I just had my doubts seeing as how 20, let alone 30 (your eventual goal), is very impressive. There are plenty of variables with pullups.

    I don't really fit the criteria...I can bench 225...I can run a 6:30 mile....but doubt I will ever be able to do 20 pullups...in my lifetime...

    Anyway, that's why you may not have the company...
    For others, 20 pullups may be do-able but the 225 bench may rule out others...I don't know...or maybe some have to shave because they have jobs...

    what the dickens i could of sworn i replied to this...
    If this somhow pops up twice or somthing blame the internet


    -The 225 pound stuff was just my goals, the point of the chalenge is that you pick a goal(s) and cant shave untill you complete them. I think that beards are very profesionall looking in a workplace:confused:

    16 years old with a beard. Hmmmm.

    Honestly, I kinda want to see you do 20 chinups right now. If you can do video, please do. Not only would that be awesome to see, it would serve as some inspiration to me and I'm nearly a decade your senior.

    Im going to a community college so the beard helps ward off the "sooo you just turned 18"? remarks

    I don't have the right setup to do the 'chin ups' anywhere but the school gym, bringing in a camera is kinda wierd, ill try to get somone tape it casually on a cell phone or somthing

    Your info says you're 16. Are you actually 18?

    16 as of febuary second

    I look a little young to be going to college hence the occasional question. Although when i say im 19 people dont have any trouble believing it.

    Ran a brutal (for my shit lungs) 1/2 mile at a 20 degree incline at 10mph, i can run at a high intensity for about 1/2 mile nothing over that:( ill try running a mile at like 7 mph or somthing like that and gradually speed up. Really hurts to know that i was running 20 minute 5k's a few years ago
