I created this blog to chronicle my progress on the P90X fitness program. If my experience helps you out that is great but like most things I do I have selfish reasons. I figure if I blog my progress here and distribute this to various people then I am less likely to cheat or not complete the program.
Since I did P90X this has evolved into more of a general fitness blog but may still be useful to some. The P90X stuff is still here but lately I am doing crossfit.

Today's warm-up was kicked off with 200 single jump ropes. I suck bad at jumping rope and the longer I am doing them the more crappy I am at them. I made it through but by the end I was only knocking out about 15-20 at a time before I was tripping over the rope. The warm-up continued with 3 rounds:
10 air squats
10 ab-mat sit-ups
The workout seemed easy enough going in. 7 rounds for time:
5 deadlifts (225/155)
400 meter run
I upped my deadlift from last time when I had done 135# to 155# so I was hitting from the ladies tee. I originally put 185# on the bar and tried to deadlift that prior to beginning the workout, no go. I think I could probably add a little more next time though just not 30#. I completed the workout in 19:08. There were only 4 of us there and I finished second although 2 of the others were deadlifting 225#. I was actually leading going into the last 400 meters but the one guy kicked it on the last 400 and beat me by :07.
