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.

I don't usually go to the gym both days on the weekend but I was feeling like working out so I did. Maybe I will do it more often and get 5 days a week in instead of 4. Today the warm up started with a 500 meter row followed by 3 rounds of:
10 walking lunges
10 abmat sit-ups
Following this we did some strength work. 10 sets of 2 bench press for weight with a 60 second break in between each set. I did 115#, 155#, 165#, 175#, 175#, 170#, 170#, 165#, 165#, 165#. We then did a metcon which consisted of a 10 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible):
30 kettlebell swings (53/35)
30 air squats
I scaled this using a 35# kettlebell instead of 53#. I completed 4 rounds and 20 additional kettlebell swings with that weight. I am feeling pretty good.
