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.

Still Doing Squats
I skipped the gym on Saturday because my legs were still screaming and the workout involved lunges and running and all manner of nasty leg work which I thought would not do them any good. I decided to give them a day and went to the gym this morning instead. My legs were feeling much better this morning although still a little sore. The warm up started with a 500 meter row followed by 3 rounds:
10 PVC arm circles
10 abmat sit-ups
We then moved on to some strength training which was 10 sets of 2 bench presses. I did 135#, 145#, 155#, 155#, 160# (with a spot on the second), 160#, 160#, 160#, 165# (spot on the second), 165# (spot on the second). I felt pretty good about those numbers. Following this the metcon WOD was a 10 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible):
30 kettlebell swings (53/35)
30 air squats
I did the swings with a 35# bell as usual. I completed 4 rounds +6 swings in the 10 minute window. I followed this up with a 500 meter row and a bunch of stretches, I concentrated on my legs. Feeling pretty good after this one.
