Hard CORE Club

A few weeks back, Jamoosh and I were emailing back and forth, trying to figure out how to hold each other accountable for completing our core work.  Lightning must have struck, because Jamoosh pulled a great idea out of the hat.  Behold the Hard CORE Club.  Where, instead of a "no girls" sign on our treehouse, we have a brass "45 second plank required to enter" spit bucket....because after doing this work out, you'll want to spit.

Jamoosh is organizing a 13 week, 13 exercise virtual class to get us all sitting up straight, running faster, and crushing walnuts between our abdominal muscles.  Since I am always looking for an edge to be faster and fitter (horse steroids), I dove in head first.  I've decided to complete the core workout 3x a week - Tues, Thurs, Sunday.  Since my workout week starts on Monday, today was a rest day.  Starting the training off right.

On The Hard CORE Club blog, Jamoosh posted a few before pictures to show that he is "not a member of the Twilight cast" and  does "not (obviously) have a beach body". (His words)  To hold myself accountable, I took the same two pictures that he took proving that I too am not a member of the Twilight cast (but am on team Jacob).

Figure A: "Joe Cool" 
(Complete with Jamoosh style "smile")

Figure B: Reality - loads of teeth! 
But only 2 nipples - and less hair


I assume that, after 13 weeks of CORE SHREDDING workouts, I'll be lean, mean, fast, and more sassy than ever.  Anything less will be failure.  This is my best artists renditioning of what I expect that I will look like.  As you can see, I not only have taken to showing off my newly found ripped abs (and my downward pointing nipples?), I also have a weee bit of an addiction to the "bronzer". Because, half of the battle is looking good.

The final stage, and I am only assuming here, will be to morph into a full on RIPPED umpa lumpa.  What do you get when you guzzle down sweets?  PUNCHED IN THE FACE AND A WONKA BAR SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT!!!!!!

Guzzle on, friends.  And then join the Hard CORE Club!!

Freakin hysterical. I love the abs!

Adrienne said...

Your crazy! Those new abs are weird looking however I like the hair and tan and of course the chocolate bar. Seriously Team Jacob? Not cool. Remember Vampires rule, wolves drool.

Cynthia O'H said...

Those abs could be on the shell of a turtle. Seriously! Better stay away from the zoo!

I'm in and started last week. My sides were killing me on Saturday, but I'm still in.

Jill said...

Phew, I'm glad I'm on the same workout days as you - now I'm guaranteed excellent results like you!!

Wonder if the Jersey Shore is going to be ready for you in 13 weeks? Good luck!

Brian said...

thanks for the reminder about the core workout I was going to start doing 3 days a week.

How are you liking the Sony wireless walkman? I finally gave up on my ipod shuffle and got one last week. I just wrote up a quick review on my blog - so far I think it's a great improvement over my old ipod.

Chris K said...

Abs are the new guns.

Jamie said...

haha, great photos! I agree with Chad on the GTL comment.

track coach and adorable wife said...

Pam said...

Mad photoshop skillz.

Kovas Palubinskas said...

I didn't see any difference between the 3 pics - am I missing something?

Nitmos said...

No offense but I think that if you need other bloggers - and we all know other bloggers aren't real people - to hold you accountable to working out, the battle is already lost.

But good luck oompifying.

Emz said...

OMGosh I loved this. I want bronze abs [well and GREEN hair].

Laura said...

Fist pumps all around!

Luke said...

oompa loompa really? batman had abs too, hard plastic ones, and then you could batarang people instead of beating them with wonka bars.

5 Miles 2 Empty said...
