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.

Clean and Deadlift
I had a hockey game Monday night and I workout on game day or the day after so today was the first since the weekend. This morning I got up and did a warm up of 100 jumping jacks followed by my standard 3 rounds:
10 abmat sit-ups
I thine did a 23 minute AMRAP:
3 power clean
I put 118# on for the cleans and went through the whole workout with that. I started out with 178# on the deadlift bar but dropped it to 148# pretty much right away. I think I should be doing more on the deadlift but I was not feeling that one this morning. I lost a good bit of time when I removed the weight too. I ended up doing 14 rounds but I was pretty careful to concentrate on form rather than get going too fast. I feel pretty good about that result, 42 reps of each exercise is plenty.
