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.

Monday Workout At Home
We got up this morning and did the workout at home in the new home gym we set up. For a warm up we did 400 meter run followed by 3 rounds:
10 PVC Overhead Squats
10 PVC Arm Circles
10 Jumping Jacks
We have no PVC so we just used some bands for the PVC work. The workout was a ladder workout defined as follows:
1-10 Thrusters (95/75) Ladder with Cindy between rounds
15 air squats
15 air squats
Continue this pattern for 10 rounds. I completed the workout in 25:30. Sarah did 6 rounds in something like 30 minutes. I did the workout with #65 and Sara used something around #30, not sure the exact weight on the bars we have. I am not sure how this compares to anyone at the gym since they changed the web site and I don't have access to results any longer. Today was the first time we used the new barbells and bumper plates. I put the #15 plates on the bar and then went to add the #10 plates and neither would fit on the bar. I decided I better try all the plates and found one of each #25, #35, and #45 that did not fit either. The bar is slightly too large for collar on some of them as you can see in the picture below.
I contacted AgainFaster customer service and they asked for pictures which I have provided and am waiting for another response. My guess is they will blame the bar, which may be true but we shall see. I am looking at getting my hands on some calipers to see if the bar or the collars are out of spec but I may end up having to fix this one myself somehow.
