My Goals:
I expect to earn my black belt in Wuzuquan kung fu within the next 6 months. As I want to be an example of not only martial arts ability, but health, mentally and physically, I am working toward leaning down to 110 from my current weight of 125. Although this doesn't sound like a big deal, IT IS.

My Program:
I attend a two hour kung fu class on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Monday and Friday are gym days, with 30 minutes of cardio each of those days, then a full body workout: Monday is major core muscles (chest, back, quads and hams), with single exercises for each group, 3 descending reps sets (20, 15, 8), and Friday auxiliary muscles (shoulders, biceps, triceps, forearms, calves, abs) with single exercises for each group (although I count shoulders as three groups as I am trying to work more on them), 3 descending reps sets(20, 15, 8).

Personal Information:
