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.

I woke up this morning at 0600, well actually 0620, and headed down to work out. I had no real idea what the hell I was going to do but I knew both my ankles were felling sore so I did not want to do anything involving them too much. I decided to skip the jump ropes as warm up since I think that might be part of the ankle issue. I did 100 jumping jacks to start off followed by 3 rounds:
You can check out the link to the video explanation of the Turkish get up for a good explanation. I was a bit off on form this morning and will probably work on that some next time. That exercise is great though and I need to include it more often. I started with a 35# kettlebell but it pretty quickly became too heavy and I didn't want to drop it on my head so I dropped the weight some. I did not time myself on this workout but worked straight through the 5 sets with no break.
