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.

Warm up started with a 400 meter run followed by 3 rounds:
10 jumping jacks
10 air squats
10 PVC arm circles
The workout was a 20 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds as Possible)
10 tire flip/jumps
20 GHD sit ups
There were a pile of people there again today. The gym is doing some sort of challenge with an outside organization and it is full of people and none of them really know what they are doing. Also they are deaf so it is hard to help them figure out what they are doing. They are all very nice but it is a bit frustrating. I was the only actual member of the gym today. I am not trying to complain because I enjoyed helping them out but it is costing me time and intensity on my workout. I completed 4 round and then up to 7 sit-ups on the 5th round. The tire flips were a bit different this time than last, this time we did flip/jumps. Instead of just flipping you add a jump, much like a box jump to the move. Have a look at this video for a demonstration. I also substituted abmat sit-ups for the GHD sit-ups part way through round 3 because my ankle started bothering me.
Cool down was 200 meter run plus a bunch of stretching.
