Round 4 Day 17-18. Plyo Plus Shoulders and Arms

Tags: , , ,

No, I did not do P90X Plyo, this was Plyometric Cardio from Insanity. Although I did toy with the idea of going back to Plyo once this round we will see. I made a quick and easy shoulders and arms workout that was OK for shoulders but not that great for triceps. I am not […]

Round 4 Day 16 – Gym Chest and Back

Tags: , ,

I resolved to make this a tough but fairly quick workout but mainly to make it repeatable. It turned out quite well, although I can’t remember how long it took and I think with time I may need to tack on some extra sets especially if I can find some heavier dumbbells to do some […]

Round 4 Day 1 – You Forget

Tags: ,

As much as they tout P90X as “muscle confusion” you do get into a rut of working the same muscle groups. It’g great that the rut isn’t too long or too deep but doing Chest and Back again yesterday for the first time in a long time reminded me of two things. First, the value […]

Round 3 – Day 78 – The Half Hour From Hell Crossfit Style

Tags: , , , ,

I was supposed to be doing Chest, Shoulders and Triceps today, don’t ask me why I thought I was on Legs and Back but I guess in the confusion of the last few days I got mixed up. I decided that having read about Crossfit for a while that I would try a Crossfit approach […]

Round 3 – Day 1 to Day 6 (Light Of My Life)

Tags: , , , , ,

Day 1 P90X – Chest and Back. It has been so long since I have done a P90X workout that I really genuinely enjoyed listening to Tony and the gang. Of course, being day 1 I am keen, full of energy, able to keep up with the kids and taking it all in stride. I […]

Round 2. Day 7 and 8. No Rest For The Wicked.

Tags: , ,

Chest and Back. Week 2 of Round 2 Begins. Since I am off 2 days a week coaching I have to skip the rest day and carry on without the benefits of Stretch X. Not that I mind really, I remember through Round 1 I would take the rest day off and not bother with […]

Round 2, Day 5. Fridays are for resting.

Tags: , ,

Legs and Back. It’s February now, I am not able to exercise with the walkout doors open in the summer heat. The claustrophobic feeling of the basement is starting to feel like cabin fever. However, I was handling things well, regardless of the horrible shape in which I find myself. That was, until today. Legs […]

G90X is Dead… Long Live P90X Round 2

Tags: , , ,

Warning. This post contains reality checks, actual results and the effect of doing P90X without the nutrition to back it up. You have been warned. 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 […]

G-Day 7 and 8 – Rest and Chest

Tags: , ,

I have missed a few days posting here but the reason is that I had to skip a couple of days for rest purposes and due to the fact we were just too busy. However, I managed to squeeze in Chest and Back at the gym, my second time around with that particular routine. Chest […]

G-Day 5 – Legs and Back

Tags: , , ,

So here is my interpretation. It is basically the same as doing the DVD in fact, I have only substituted a couple of moves. I cannot nail down the best way to work in the incline leg press so it may never make it in to the workout. I posted this before the workout, so […]
