First, I want to apologize for not providing new content yesterday! I know may of you checked in, but unfortunately nothing new was up. Cramming for a big biochemistry test on Friday has me on the ropes this week.

Here at 2 Fat Nerds each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed. Let’s dive into the numbers!

September-October Challenge

Please leave a comment with your updated measurements! If you want them to be kept private for any reason, leave a comment and i’ll make arrangements!

  • Total Pushup Count until fatigue
  • Total Chin-Up Count until fatigue (if assisted mark what pound assisted with)
  • Total Plank Time in seconds
  • Total Squats within a one minute window.


Weight Loss

Each week, members who have opted to have their weights publicly displayed for the world to see have them graphed on the main blog. It is a great way to keep track over time, and it gives a bit more accountability to your workouts. If you are interested, leave a comment!


Congrats to Laura who posted a fantastic number this week. Very exciting to see!

Anti-Fat Points

Anti-fat points (AFP) is a system designed to give some sort of value to each and every workout, regardless of type. It is based on metabolic-equivalent values out of the compendium of physical activities. Submit a workout, get AFP. Each week we post the totals for each person for the week. In addition, you may see the monthly AFP leader-board on the right-hand sidebar. This is meant to be a fun way to encourage competition to see who can earn the most points!


The threshold is back to 100 AFP, Green is over and Red is under. Try to get 100 AFP and turn your bar green!

The Chain-Game

The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!


As always, if you were slow to get data in, your chain will be re-instated!
