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 […]

R11D31-32 – Winter Olympic Lifting

Tags: , ,

The opening ceremonies for the Sochi Olympics are this morning. I know that the Winter games don’t have the lustre of their summer counterparts and to imagine those poor Canadian Hockey players suffering needlessly in their shared rooms is almost too much to bear but it is the Olympics so I am suitably excited. Not […]

Tags:

For the past week or so I have been doing my regular olympic lifting, anywhere from 65-105 reps total. Last week I was able to do a day of just deadlifts at 135 which left me very sore indeed and so I decided to scale back a little and go back to 95 lbs until […]

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 […]
