R11D90-98 – Cruising

Tags: , , ,

I didn’t actually quit after day 90 a week ago, I have been busy with work and gymnastics and unable to get my activities down. I have also been field testing a Garmin Vivofit which I am using to see what I can deduce from my daily activities and sleep that will help to get […]

R11D86-90 – Welcome To The End

Tags: ,

I have been going on about Body Beast and how much I am enjoying it but after doing a workout at Crossfit Ark last week I think my time would be best served as soon as possible to get back to HIIT functional movement. For me this means kettlebells, Olympic lifting and metcon work that […]

R11D80-86 – Squats Tried To Kill Me Plus The June Goals

Tags: , ,

I got called 2 weird things lately. A cross between Chef Ramsey and Simon Cowell and from another person a mix of Shrek and The Hulk. Really? Really?? I’m not that big. Seriously. So I haven’t posted in a few days because I have been in so much pain I can’t even explain myself. I […]

R11D75-79 – The Home Stretch (Feels like the beginning)

Tags:

I should probably feel like I am closer to the end but in all honesty I can’t really say I started this round until I transitioned from P90X3 and T25 to Body Beast. That was back around day 51 and so technically I suppose this would only be day 28 or so of a Body […]

R11D71-74 – More Bulk, Less Fat Apparently

Tags:

I noticed yesterday while doing my Body Beast Bulk Shoulders that I seem to have dropped a not insignificant amount of fat. I was supposed to be taking photos and weighting in regularly this phase and I have done neither so far but yesterday I finally noticed that I am actually regaining some definition after […]

R11D60-66 – Anaerobic Hell

Tags: , , , ,

It’s strange how you forget your experience with certain types of exercise when you are away for a while. It’s been a while since I have done any TRUE weight lifting, and by that I mean real anaerobic, no cardio, hard weight pushing, heavy mechanical exertion. You forget about the searing pain of lactic acid […]

R11D58-60 Rep Counts for P90X, P90X2, P90X3 and Body Beast (Proof you are being lazy)

Tags: , , , , , ,

I have to say first off that I can already feel the difference between the 25-30 minute workouts of the first half of Round 11 and the 45 minute workouts of Body Beast. It’s a really small change but I sincerely believe that the extra 15 minutes makes a big difference in my results and […]

R11D51 – Body Beast – Possibly A Bad idea

Tags: ,

<— This is the only time I would be able to out perform Tania from Insanity… She’s back in T25 and kicking my ass all over again. On Monday I did my version of Body Beast Chest and did 135 reps of 135lbs and then 135 reps of vsnaps for core. I was supposed to […]

Update and detail on my “bootcamp” days

Tags: ,

Friday I did a short bootcamp with the kids, if only to get them to do 45 seconds on non stop work. It was a bit of a farce but at least I had my CIT to keep an eye on them. Saturday I busted out the Kettlebells and did a shoulder workout, so not […]
