My macros are 50P/30C/20F. I shoot for about 1800 calories which is about maintenance for me, and adjust by a couple of hundred calories up or down depending on intensity of cardio, etc. Basically, I use strength as a gauge for adjusting intake. Being vegetarian, it makes it challenging but I deal with it. My program is drawn from a bunch of sources - Ross Enamait is a leading influence and many of my core and GPP circuits are drawn from Infinite Intensity. I have also used various gymnastic progressions as some of my goals last year involved static hold metrics. Last year, I used splits based on strength routines (presses, etc.) and explosive strength routines (snatches, C&J, etc.) but I have decided to start this year on a more conventional push/pull modality. We'll see how it goes. My goals as I mentioned in the original post are largely based on bodyweight and "pound-for-pound" metrics. Hypertrophy is not desirable for me but I am targeting a 7lb increase in muscle that I think is a pretty challenging goal since I aim to drop bodyfat a bit as well. Let me know if there is something specific that I can elaborate on and I'll be happy to do so.

My (6 foot hight) plan is to go down to 165 lbs again. Two years ago I was 210 lbs and managed to go down to 165 lbs until I had a ligament rupture over my ankle in summer. After half a year without much exercising and bloating to 180 lbs, I need to go down again. I hate feeling my stomach while sitting.

How do you calculate that? You must be really young and considerably more active than I am (I use a Harris-Benedict multiplier of 1.5 or so)

My BMR (5'6", 135lbs, 44 yo) according to this site is 1446.

According to the Harris Benedict equation, for a moderately active lifestyle, my daily metabolic need comes to around 2000. I undershoot by a bit to start off and then adjust as I go along based on performance feedback.

Late to the p90X party but I started it on 01/01. Goal for 2011 is to drop 10 lbs of fat (this would take me down to about 8-10% body fat). I've been lifting/running for a decade but this is the sort of workout I avoid/hate. Will be good for me as long as I don't eat 3K calories a day like I'm wanting to do after 3 workouts now.

Those are Good Goals
Here are mine.

Male (40+), 1.72m, 62kg

(currently about 75%+ of the way to accomplishing this goal)
100 push-ups in 2 minutes (chest, hips, and knees all touch the deck at the same time)
100 sit-ups
20 Dead Hang Pull-ups
1.5 mile Run under 10 minutes (will be willing to accept a less than 7.5 minute 2K row on the concept2)
I don't swim for shit

Strength Goals = Crossfit Total of 6x BW or better
Deadlift 3x BW (Long way to go with PR at 152kg)
Back Squat (ass-to-grass) 2x BW (Long way to go PR = 115kg)
Shoulder Press 1x BW (Already there, PR = 65kg)

O-lifting Goals (one year+ after wrist surgery):
Snatch 1x BW (Historic PR=75kg, current PR=55kg)
Clean and Jerk 1.5x BW (Historic PR=100kg, current PR=75kg)

Drop down to 60kg and sub 7% BF
If it happens it happens goal: Row 1,000,000 meters on the Concept2

^ Nice goals! I'm close to a 1X BW Shoulder press - maybe I can get it this year.

Navy seal benchmarks are tough - how do you plan to incorporate training for them (as they are so specific) in with the rest of your more conventional gym goals? I have also thought about going after 100 pushups and 20 pullups but I haven't figured out structure a program that doesn't require me to drop more conventional goals.

I follow a Max-Effort Black Box for the slow lifts and the olympic lifts and mix scaled crossfit workouts I test once every two months. For example today was Max-effort Back squats 5,5,5,5,5,5 building to 85kg followed by 4x1000M intervals on the concept2 at 5 seconds per 500m faster than my 5K pace. Tomorrow will be a Tabata workout 8 intervals of 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rests and 5 exercises--pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, unweighted air-squats, concept2 rowing for Kcal. 1 minute rest between each exercise. Wednesday will be 5k row followed by the crossfit WOD. . . . I was a devoted crossfitter until I found the MEBB program mixed with crossfit. It made me a faster bicycle racer, better O-lifter, better athlete....... I am fighting becoming an old man because I have a 1 year old daughter and I have a bit of vanity ;-) references: Coach Rut at http://www.bootcampfitnesskc.com/ Greg Everett et al at www.cathletics.com/ Robb Wolf at www.robbwolf.com
