R5D27 – The Return Of P90X Plyometrics.

Tags: , ,

I started my rest week yesterday with a return to the Plyometrics DVD from the P90X series. I had expected that I would experience it the way I did when I went through the program “properly” the first and second times. I was mistaken. If there was ever a time when I needed validation, this […]

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 2 – Short Memory

Tags: ,

If I couldn’t see them, I would be convinced my triceps are on fire. I forgot how painful things can be once you start to move them. Today is Plyo, the workout that is glowingly referred to as the X in P90X. Of course, Tony seems to refer to several different things as either “THE […]

Tags: ,

Knee pain? Hip pain? Low back pain while running? Check your ITB. As I was preparing to go down to the basement to do Plyo with Tony, the ever modest, humble Tony, I recalled something he says during the Plyo workout. “You should see me play hoops after doing this for a couple of months… […]

Day 65 – Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Tags: , , ,

Plyometrics The Wolf is always behind you… The theory behind P90X and indeed any weight bearing exercise is stress. Stressing the muscle, if not to force it to grow, at least to force it to adapt to changing workloads. Muscles, much like people, work best when they are faced with unpredictable workloads and stressors. It […]

DAY 58 – Put Down The Pork

Tags: ,

Plyometrics The workouts are the easy part, the real challenge is writing about it every day! Actually, looking at the scale this morning, the diet is obviously the challenge for me. Rest week obviously made my body think we were on vacation and didn’t have to bother losing any weight. Plyo is one of my […]

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 […]

Day 45 – The Turn

Tags: ,

**Note to future self – That Nutrition course is bullshit, most of what you will hear is bullshit. Paleo is the answer to the lipid hypothesis lies and deceit. I can’t believe the state we are in due to the Canada Food Guide or the Standard American Diet – August 2011   Plyo – August […]
