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.

It was cold as shit when I got up to go to the gym this morning, 9 degrees. I dragged my ass out though and made it on time. The warm up was 500 jump rope singles. I don't actually know how many I did but it was maybe 5 minutes. I had to change ropes 2 times because I was not careful on size on the first one and the second one kept getting tangled. The rest of the warm-up was 3 rounds
10 PVC arm circles
20 mountain climbers
10 air squats
The workout was the following for time:
10 HSPU (Hand Stand Push-Ups)
20 box jumps (24/20)
40 hand release push-ups
50 kettlebell swings (53/35)
70 abmat sit-ups
80 air squats
I did pike push-ups with my feet on the 24" box instead of HSPU. I got in the HSPU position initially but there was no chance I was going to be able to do them. I also did most all my pull-ups jumping as I tend to do. I did the kettlebell swings with a 35# kettlebell. I completed in 23:26 and felt pretty good about it.
