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.

Wednesday Workout on Tuesday
I am really mixing things up now. I have to be at a meeting for work in VA tomorrow morning early so I won't be able to make the morning workout. I instead hit the gym up tonight. The warm up started with a 400 meter run followed by 3 rounds of:
10 mountain climbers
10 jumping jacks
10 PVC arm circles
The workout was prescribed as the following for time:
100 meter walking lunges
50 double unders or 150 single unders
25 knees to elbows
50 box jumps
25 overhead squats (65/45)
50 abmat sit-ups
I completed the workout in 21:13 with a slight modification. I did the single unders instead of doubles because I can't really do doubles. I also switched from 65# to 45# at 15 reps on the overhead squats. My form was sucking at that weight and I figured I was better off keeping the form good instead of going for weight. Had I been thinking I would have put on two 5# plates instead of the 10# ones at the start so I could have dropped from 65# to 55# easily. Oh well, live and learn. I felt pretty good and it was a fun one.
Normal crap for cool down. 200 meter run and a bunch of stretching.
