Day 47-49 Weekends are fun! Program mixups are not!

Tags: , , , ,

I don’t want to fall into a pattern of losing touch with the proper schedule during weekends but for some reason last week’s mess with the wrong workout on the wrong day and then an extra day off really messed things up. It sent ripples of disturbance through this weekend causing me to perform a […]

Tags: , , ,

Back and Biceps, Ab Rippler Nicole decided that we should donate our digital camera to her dad for his new business – www.torontolandlordagent.com. That opened the door for us to go to the Bay and use some of our gift certificates from the wedding to get a new digital camera. We chose the Sony CyberShot […]

Days 40-43 Major Malfunction, Long Weekend

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 38 – 1 Week To The Top

Tags: , ,

Back, Biceps I always imagine the half way point of any venture as the top of the mountain, once you are past half way, things always seem to go more quickly towards the finish line. One week from today I will be half way through the P90X program and although my “transformation” is not significant, […]

Tags: , , ,

Legs and Back. Note the opposite twist to the natural hip position. Ouch! I was thinking last night after I finished Yoga that one of the main reasons that people fail at sticking to thing such as diets, a workout plan, a 90 day torture session like P90X is fear. I have heard this a […]

Day 31 – Building a better bar

Tags: , ,

Back and Biceps – Yes, they are real. Greg Valentino – The man whose arms exploded. Bear in mind he is 5’2″. The other day I found a pretty strong hollow metal bar at Home Depot for under $20. Today before my workout I drilled holes in my basement door frame and slid the bar in. […]

Day 19 – The 21 day habit

Tags: , ,

Legs and Back – 80 chinups, not bad for a fat old guy. Bring it he said. Do your best and forget the rest he said. What he neglected to say is that if you do bring it you may actually lose the ability to walk for short periods of time. He didn’t say “Do your […]

Day 15 – Honeymoon pants

Tags: , ,

Today is the start of week 3. This is identical to 1 and 2 but this is the last of that specific rotation. This means this is my last week to try to perfect this sequence of moves. This in itself is a big motivator for me. I know the workout, I know the kind […]

Day 12 – Injury prone?

Tags: , , ,

Legs and Back. Injuries are a fact of life in any athletic endeavour. I very rarely go to the gym without feeling some kind of pain somewhere. There is always something I am having to work around or be careful with and maybe only a few weeks in each year where I can really go […]

Day 8 – Week 2 already!!!

Tags: , , ,

Chest and Back. Week 2 here we go! Only 82 more days to go! I awoke this morning feeling like someone had thrown up in my mouth for me. It was a truly disgusting feeling that I could easily have predicted had I thought about it. I was too busy bidding on Versace and David […]
