Our good friend, and fellow Brother in Christ, Kevin Vina recently commented:
Mike – great article – I appreciate it. I have a question for you guys and this new article kind of brings it up. What about accountability?
You said “men thrive in these environments where there is competition and physical tasks” – So have you thought about some kind of bulletin board where guys could go and post their results on some kind of leaderboard? Or personal score card?
I don’t know – I’m just brainstorming. I mean I don’t want to compete with YOU for max PU in 1 min but it may be motivational.
I’m not exactly sure what I’m getting at I guess I just want to know if you have thought of some kind of place for this kind of competition / accountability you are talking about.
Let me know
Mike responded, and after a few emails, we’ve decided to implement something called “Accountability Monday.” Here’s how it’s going to work.
If you do any sort of workout over the course of the week and would like to share it with the Intentional Encounter community all you have to do is come to this post (or the latest Accountability Monday post) and leave a comment as to what you did that day.
So, for example, if you workout 3 times over the course of the week you would post a summary of these workouts in 3 different comments.
Warning: Mike is a Beast
Mike and I are going to do this… and, let me just say, Mike is a beast so don’t get psyched out by what he does. He’s been at this for quite awhile and is in incredible shape.
He and I worked out on Saturday and I couldn’t even come close to keeping up. But, it doesn’t matter. He encouraged me and I did my very best and felt like a million bucks once we were done.
The Day After Super Bowl Sunday
I recently heard that the day after Super Bowl Sunday is the day most men realize they need to improve their health. So, if this is you… we’d welcome you to take the first step. We’ll be here to support you every step of the way.
Not Sure Where to Start?
If you’re not sure where to start… we have you covered. Download the free Intentional Wellness eBook by completing the form at the bottom of this article. You’ll find workouts for your first 40 days.
Finally, if you need some motivation… check this video out and then start. Just drop down where you are… and do 10 push-ups and 10 crunches.
Can’t do 10 push-ups? Do 5. Can’t do 5? Do 1. Can’t do 1? Start doing them on your knees. No one will judge you. In fact, I’d personally congratulate you for your courage and willingness to try. Believe in yourself!
