R9D67 – Bootcamp 3.4.2 – Weights And Stability

I made up a short workout for yesterday and may have given myself tennis elbow in the process. 4 Rounds for Time: Alternating Shoulder Press (35lb DB) Upright Rows (95lb barbell) Clean and […]

Day 1 P90X – Chest and Back. It has been so long since I have done a P90X workout that I really genuinely enjoyed listening to Tony and the gang. Of course, being day 1 I am keen, full of energy, able to keep up with the kids and taking it all in stride. I […]

Round 2, Day 36 – Chest, Shoulders and Triceps and Home Bench

Tags: , , , ,

I am really happy with this workout now that I have substituted some of the weaker exercises with more bench work. When I bench I feel like I am really working. I have a hard time getting out of the gym rat mindset that unless you are throwing massive amounts of weights around then you […]

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 […]

Day 73 – The Flooring Aftermath

Tags: , ,

Chest, Shoulders and Arms. So P90X took a back seat to the flooring. I knew it would have to so I was prepared. Besides, the flooring installation was the kind of thing that is the reason that I was doing P90X in the first place. The ability to work like a normal person, to work […]

Day 64 – Straight Numbers and Stupid Carrots

Tags: , , , ,

Chest, Shoulders, Triceps You would think that just keeping the right day on the right numbered post would be easy wouldn’t you? The truth is that for the most part I write these posts the following evening before I work out that night so keeping the right date on the right day isn’t necessarily something […]
