Century Club Run and Pull-Ups

I like it!
100 Push-Ups
100 Pull-Ups
100 Miles a month

G.U.T.S. Twice a day

Thanks, I think G.U.T.S. is a great, tough workout. I can hardly wait to measure how fit I am in a few months.

G.U.T.S. Twice a Day

Wow! I was wondering if anyone could do the G.U.T.S. workout every day without hurting their ligaments, tendons and joints. Twice a day? That's motivating! Let us know when the movie comes out.
