I’m Back! P90X Kenpo

Tags: , ,

It’s been a while, I have been battling many things, a very sore leg which may have a slight infection, a hacking cough that won’t go away, a significant weight gain that is preventing me from getting to a pain free plateau and a return to coaching that will no doubt throw a wrench into […]

R8D14-17 – Flirting With Overtraining and The Kenpo Apology

Tags: , , ,

I’m feeling the wear and tear right now, but I know that in time there will be days I can’t help but miss. That’s why if I can work out I do, so that when I can’t I don’t have to feel guilty about it. My elbows are torn up from low plank work at […]

Round 2. Days 12-16, Insanity Hybrid is here

Tags: , , ,

Human DNA removal. One way or another… I couldn’t wait. Reading other blogs about people abandoning Kenpo and Yoga to do Insanity workouts drove me to a┬ájealous┬árage. I ripped open my Insanity package and on day 13 instead of doing Kenpo I decided I would bust out the easiest of the Insanity DVDs. I decided […]

Round 2. Days 9 – 11. Weekends are for working. Buying My Insanity.

Tags: , , , ,

I am finding this P90X thing harder the second time around. Not only, as I am repeatedly saying, that I am in worse shape than I was but also because I am skipping bits and pieces and therefore not quite getting the work I once was. It’s fine to say that I want to skip […]

Round 2. Day 6. Pain. I has it.

Tags: , ,

I did Kenpo during the day today because I knew what I was in for. When I got up this morning my legs were like jello. I knew from the familiar feeling of apathy from my muscles that today was going to go down hill in a hurry. I tried to rush to get some […]

G-Day 6 – Kenpo with a twist

Tags: , , ,

The more I modify the system, the more I feel involved and like a willing participant. Doing this thing the second time around can get a little repetitive and so even during the DVDs that I followed with such venom previously I am finding ways to make things different. Today was Kenpo, one of the […]

Day 84 – Stuck in a time warp

Tags: ,

Day 1 of rest week 5. Supposed to be Yoga, may Plyo instead. The thing about this coaching lark is that it has thrown my workout schedule so far out of whack I can’t keep my days straight. Thankfully I am only 7 days away from completing the program and getting my P90X stripes. That […]

Days 75-76 Weekend Warrior returns. As does back pain.

Tags: , ,

Back, Legs, Kenpo Had to… two often misused and overused words. However, I had to take Friday off. It was inevitable and unavoidable that after the first week of coaching that I would be very sore, very cranky and very tired. Although this should not have prevented me from going down to the basement with […]

Days 68 to 70 – Floored

Tags: , , ,

Legs and Back, Kenpo As usual, the weekend took a toll on my workouts. Not that I don’t have time t0 get them done, but especially this time I have other things to occupy my time. I took Friday off, something which I think is inherited from my father who took Friday evenings as his […]

Day 52 – The Hamster Dance

Tags: , , , ,

Kenpo, my favourite. Not only is rest week a great break from the hardcore workouts but it allows you to really enjoy the workouts rather than forcing yourself through them doing as much as you can. This extra enjoyment makes Kenpo an amazing workout. I got my recovery drink in the mail the other day […]
