I have an idea for a friendly challenge for those of us who get distracted by shiny things. @isdatnutty and I were discussing how committing to a simple program can have the same results as always trying the newest, greatest thing.
This thread will hopefully serve as a challenge and source of accountability for those of us who need to just put their head down and work for an extended period of time.
The challenge is simple - pick a program and run it until the end of the year. If the program has a set time period then run it as is and just start over once you “finish”. The idea/goal is to run one program for the next three to four months.
If you’re like @T3hPwnisher and want to run Deep Water, then you could simply run each version in succession - Beginner, Intermediate, and what I can only assume would be Instant Death for the advanced version.
There will be no rewards. If you need that much motivation then you have more problems than this little thread can solve. I’m still recovering from shoulder surgery. I intend to get my full release from the doctor on September 5th, so I will officially be starting this on September 10th (the Monday following my appointment). If you want an official start date then call it September 1st. You can start now, of course, but putting it off gives you one last chance to change your mind (again).
Participation is simple - post that you’re in and share your program. You can just give the name like 5/3/1 BBB 3 Month Challenge, or you can write it out if it’s more custom. The second step is to create (or continue) a training log.
Use this thread to encourage one another, talk a little smack, and share videos/pics. For those of you who participate in the T-ransformation Challenge, you could run a nice bulking program to prepare for your “before” photo.
Try to drop in around September 1st to submit your program.
