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.

Not sure what the hell happened today, felt like we did 3 WODs. The warm up started out with 3 rounds:
250 meter row
15 kettlebell swings (35/26)
Following this the workout was prescribed as follows for time:
100 front squats (115/95)
EMOM 20 double unders or 40 single jump ropes
At first glance this seems like it might not be too bad until I realized that the 40 singles were going to take up 30 seconds of every minute. In case you are unaware EMOM is Every Minute On the Minute so you stop at the top of every minute to do the jump ropes. I finished this in 12:43 but had to scale the weight down to 95#. I started off with 115# but it became apparent real quickly that this was too much. My form broke down on the first couple and I dropped the weight to 95#. Following this we had a cash out prescribed as 20-15-10-5:
So you do 4 rounds with 20 reps of each exercise the first time, 15 the next and so on. Coach Brent did time this one but the times were not posted on the web page. This was not really supposed to be timed so that is fine. My legs are screaming today and I have a hockey game tonight, should be fun.
