You've got to love the start of a new month! I'm starting out simple- two days of cardio, two of strength training, two pilates or yoga.

What's your plan?

My plan is to workout minimum of 6 hours a week at the gym. I usually do 2+ hour sessions so I'm hoping I will start seeing more definition in the muscles building. I do the elliptical, sideways elliptical, squats, bicep curls, tricep weight lifting, this calves machine, weighted lunges, crunches, and planks. Also the occasional push up (only like 5).

My plan is to get in as many miles as I can on my bike. (started off with 3.3 so far today) I plan to go for another one later on.
I also want to get back to circuit training this month. I worked my way back up after a slight injury this summer. I think my body is ready. I plan to start with 2 rep's once a week for my "hardcore" circuit training.
Otherwise, I'm finishing up the 100pushups, 200 situps, 200 squats programs. I will be done with the situps and squats program this week. My plan is to do the 200 each 1-2times a week while I finish the pushup program.
I'm also finishing up 30DS. I'm on level 2 so I'd like to get to level 3 this month, possibly finish it. Then I plan to redo it over with heavier weights.

My rough schedule is:
MWF strength program and either bike ride or 30DS
TTh bike ride and 30DS, plan to switch one day out for circuit training
SSun. I don't focus on exercise much on weekends. A walk here, a ride there. Nothing too heavy though.

OMG 100 push ups!!!! Ridiculously awesome.

Yikes I can only do like 3 push-ups! Never posted on this board but I wanted to get motivated to workout more.

Goals for this month:
Biking a 30K charity ride on September 11th
Spinning 3x a week
Weights 2x a week
Commuting on my bike until it gets to cold

I want to maintain working out 5x - 6x a week. :-D

It's a pretty cool program. When I first read about it I thought the poster was nuts as well. But, they directed me to the program. It's very gradual (although I just had to repeat week 3 LOL). But, the program is good at testing you regularly to make sure you can handle the upcoming weeks. It is a 6 week program, but it can take you as long as necessary.
So far I've been at it 4 weeks. Next week I'll be moving on to week 4 of the program since I feel better with the results this week. Last week I could finish week 3 intervals but just barely. I have DEFINITELY noticed a difference in the definition in my arms!! I started out being able to do about 8 and the high so far this week has been 21 at one time. That's pretty awesome to me!! Plus, when you add up the intervals, I end up doing about 82pushups 3 days a week, which is also nutso! But it breaks it up so that you're able to do it..

Anyway, another goal I added in regard to my biking is to get up to 300 miles (I'm at 165miles so far already) so that would be 135miles, we will see about that one. I'd also like to get my speed up to 14mph. Right now I've been getting just over 13mph.

Looks like you guys have some great goals for the month! This is a nice thread! I keep track of my minutes in the other thread, but it is nice to have a monthly thread for fitness goals! :D

All I'm going to aim for is to help my knee injury heal, take plenty of rest and be patient and gentle with myself. Might start walking rather than running for a few weeks. No hurry to get back to running, although I miss it soooo bad. I don't want to risk sliding backwards by re-injuring myself.
