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 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 […]

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 […]

Day 82 – Redemption (I am so lost sometimes)

Tags: , , , ,

So my last entry lamenting the fact that I missed my last weights day was a little premature. Fact is that I have one day left. The day 81 workout was the Kenpo that I switched with Yoga leaving me with Legs and Back today and then Yoga on Friday (or not, as noted). So […]

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 61 – I Can See Clearly Now The Rain Has Gone

Tags: ,

Or in Nicole’s case, I can see clearly now you have cut open my eyeball and burned off part of my retina with a laser! It appears, at least initally, that the surgery was a resounding success. Her comments to me are similar to the feelings I recall from my own surgery and since I […]

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 […]

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 33 – The Fear. The Choice.

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 […]
