Well, no surprise that my transition to the gym didn’t work out as planned and now here I sit in worse shape than I was before I started the workouts […]

Day 81 – Last Resistance Day. I wish I had known.

Days 77 – 80 Still going, if not writing.

Tags: , ,

For the record, here is a response I sent to a friend regarding the difference in the 3 versions of P90X. So here is the deal. Classic means you do one workout per day for the 90 days. Just follow the program with the 7th day an optional stretch or day off. With Doubles, you […]

Day 57 – The Adonis Complex and My Elusive 400lb Bench

Tags: , , ,

Chest and Back It was like a trip down memory lane. The Chest and Back workout was the workout that I did on the first day of P90X 57 days ago. I haven’t done that particular workout since Phase 1 and it was really weird being reminded of where I started. Luckily, my numbers were […]

Tags: , , ,

Tuesday August 4 2009. Chest Triceps and Shoulders. I’m back! The weekend ended up being a bonus in a way, I feel better, more capable, and most of all a lot less sore than I did on Friday. The workout, then, was not easy, that’s not what happens with P90X. I was able to do […]

Tags: , , , , , ,

So I kind of messed up this week. I did Kenpo on Thursday because I was sure that was the right thing to do. I realized once I checked the schedule that I was supposed to do Yoga on Thursday and Kenpo on Saturday. I actually ended up taking Saturday off (well, I did 45 […]

Day 36 – Week 6 Begins – The Grind.

Tags: , , ,

I feel like I am in that no-man’s land between the start and the finish. It’s that part of the race where you are too far from the start to be beginning but too far from the end to be excited about finishing. This is the grind. I expect that phase 2 will be like […]
