    Day 2/90 of P90X completed. Today we did Plyometrics, which consists alot of jumping and 'burst' exercises. There are alot of variations of jumping from a squatting position, as well as some various footwork exercises that I associate with football and soccer training.

    Challenging. I treated it like a cardio program, and just did what I needed to keep my heart rate elevated.

    Forgive the ignorance, but what do you mean by "chins"?

    Awesome! That's quite an impressive variety of activity, actually. I can see you being pretty successful assuming the boxing classes are what you were hoping for. (You can always try kickboxing next if you don't like the boxing classes!)

    You're doing great, Hap.

    Chin Ups. Pull Ups.

    I trained legs a bit after work and I did a ton of spotting in the gym.

    Heh. Duh.

    My back is killing me from all the (assisted) pull ups I did yesterday. So are my abs. Plus, I've been pretty clumsy the past two days, despite having enough energy and whatnot.

    Perhaps there is something to the whole CNS exhaustion theory.

    Wow, you're doing P90X? You're a beast! That's one challenging workout, especially for us, uh, larger gentlemen. Good luck!

    You're on P90X? Interesting.

    I know I'm out of the running cheat-wise, but I'm making an active effort to address my fatigue issue and get back on here anyway, just to do it. I've just picked up some medication which -should- help with the sinuses, and through that, my quality of sleep. I may give that program a whirl if all goes well. Very curious to see how beat up you are after a week of it.

    I think I'd love it if my name were Wrecking.

    Aerobics class and Krav Maga today. Pilates on the step, it was boring XD Pilates are boooorrring. And Krav Maga was further chop and combo practice.

    We'll see about the beast part. But I'm going to give it my all!

    The fact that I've been hitting the gym for the duration of the contest, and actually sporadically since June before that, helps a bit. But I promise you, it's a combination of sheer determination and willingness to take extra breaks when I start losing my technique (usually well before they are done) that's allowing me to do this.

    I'll be sure to keep ya updated. I'm already really, really sore in my back. Yesterday, I kept on dropping things because my grip was fatigued. Hah. I wasn't a pretty sight.

    Good luck. Please keep us updated on your progress. Overcoming obstacles like this, while not as glamorous, are still every bit a part of succeeding as actual exercise.

    I'd love to see the outtakes and bloopers for that commercial.

    .8 mi to school, 25 min weights

    Next semester I don't have gym, so... any ideas on what kind of classes I should look for in the wide outside world?

    What kind of activities do you enjoy, Hap?

    Trinity has some pretty good ideas... you can try pilates, yoga, or even boxing or a martial art if that interests you. If swimming is an option, you can always go for that. (It's not an accident that swimmers are generally very muscular and lean.)
