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.

Up and At 'Em
Got up at 0600 this morning, I actually was up on time today, and again had no idea what I was going to do. I had a look at my old crossfit gym's website (CrossfitSRT) and their workout looked fine so I ran with it. I started with 100 jumping jacks and 3 rounds:
10 PVC arm circles
I did some stretching before the workout. The workout was 7 rounds of the following for time:
60 jump rope singles
They actually had it prescribed as 20 double unders but I adjusted that to the 60 singles. I did the deadlifts with 168#. I should have probably done a bit more. That is over my body weight but I am thinking I should have gone with 188#. I completed the 7 rounds in 14:40. I was not in a giant hurry to finish but I worked pretty well straight through with about 10 seconds or so each round for proper setup on the deadlift. I took a bit longer than that to setup on the last two rounds but I did all the rest uninterupeted and without any breaks in between.
