I'm also getting involved although the weight needs to go ON not OFF.

50 situps per night.

2x 15 and 1x 20 reps = 60 seconds - rests.

That's 350 per week in 7 minutes of my life & 1400 per month in half an hour

The maths is undeniable.

That's alongside the Mrs. I'm aiming to double that output at least.

Once the burn is felt i'll prolly attack some press-ups too.

EYE OF THE TIGER :twisted: GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Checking in - probably 13 stone after xmas - but the only way I'll lose weight is taking my rucksack off.

I'll weigh myself properly later. I should be 11.5 normally I'm 12.5.

just found this...

Reckon if I can reach 12 stone that would be realistic and account for...

Count me in seriously, according to that ideal weight calculater TK posted up I am spot on my ideal weight but my lean mean fighting fit figure is not there.
I need to reduce fat a wee bit and tone up/build up a wee bit muscle just get fit generally. Admittedly I'm only tweaking but this is as good a motivational cause as any. :wink:

Indeed! If cycling's your only exercise theres a good case for a bit of resistance training especially as we get older. Keeps all the ligaments and tendons in tip top shape as well as working some muscles neglected by cycling.

I have a road circuit from my work I used to do on my fixie, about five miles, plenty of short sharp hills. Haven't done it in ages, time to restart I reckon plus get back in the pool and get some lengths in, god I hate swimming but I do feel a benefit :roll:
