P90X Day 60 The Naked Yoga edition
I didn’t start out planning to do naked yoga this morning. It started like any other 4am yoga session with me questioning my sanity for doing this so early. I’ve gotten flexible. Not as flexible as I was when I was doing martial arts consistently but clearly more flexible than one of my favorite pair of boxers would allow. RIIIPP! Que naked yoga. Yeah I said naked (don’t...
Day 59 "bring it, bring it come on X me!"
Tony Horton is an amazingly energetic person at 4 am. He jumps, he shouts he says highly inappropriate things that if you run through random homo erotic filters will give you a more complete or totally false view of the man, but i LOVE his excitement. The glamour muscle workout is done and tomorrow I get to take my day 60 pictures. I’m hoping they look much better than my day 30 pictures...
P90X Day 58 Leap frog time
4am Plyo never sounds like a good thing, but it sounds much better than 7pm plyo after a long day at work. So I knocked out my workout this morning and i’m glad I did. Nothing exceptionally spectacular about this workout session, but I completed and didn’t sweat nearly as much as I have in the past. That sounds gross as it’s written but if you’ve ever been in a flop...
P90X day 57 This is what it's about!
I have entered the final 33 days of P90X and I’m happy. Nothing can motivate you more than doing the month 1 workouts and totally crushing the numbers you go the first time around. I increased just about everything by 10 reps including diamond and dive bomber push ups! Of course now i’m light headed and need to take in some grub…. Ok back I’m drinking a...
How do you rename your blog? and does that screw up everyone that’s following you?
Fit is nice
The last 60 days I’ve been busting my ass with P90X. Yesterday I did some shopping at Cosco and loaded up boxes and carried them into the house and didn’t break a sweat. These were not light boxes, infact, I had to actively engage muscle groups in the lifting of the boxes. Last year this time, I would have been to out of shape and would have had to make more trips. This time, I...
M2W4D6 Month 2 DONE!
I have climbed the mountain that is P90X month 2 and I have crossed it! Yoga X, the last workout this week is completed. I think I pulled a neck/shoulder muscle in the process but it was a dynamite workout. I’m So incredibly amp’d up as most people quit P90X during Month 2. 30 more days! No turning back. During the course of this workout I’ve gotten other people to sign up...
M2W4D5 I have the power!
Core synergistics this morning and I felt completely revived. I guess I was really run down and it took a bit and a solid sleep to recharge the battery. I continue to be amazed at how the body works and heals itself. The right food, a little sleep and you are right back to within normal range. Taste of Chicago starts today. I work right across the street from Grant park so I may go down at lunch...
M2W4D4 Stretch-X (much needed workout)
As much as i didn’t want to do this today, this was probably the best workout for me as I now feel incredibly relaxed. It’s been a bad week, my son and his mom decided to move back down state, I got stuck on a train, go soaked walking in the rain twice, i”m on call at work and just generally off this week. I think it’s partially from the exertion of the warrior dash...
M2W4D3 Kenpo-X and TURBOJAM
This has been the hardest week working out in the entire series. The curse of Month 2 has hit hard as i’m having to find extra effort to do the workouts but i’m pushing through and working and getting stronger. Kenpo-X still boring as shit. I did Turbo Jam with Kat after Kenpo…Turbo Jam is fun, i got a solid sweat going, much more of a sweat than with Kenpo but not as much as...
Today was probably one of the most mentally challenging workouts I’ve done in a bit. After last nights dual workout (which will NEVER be done again), I had a difficult time getting up this morning and pressing play, but I did it….all but 12 minutes of Core. I’ve noticed that I sweat more when working out. This is supposedly a good thing but I hate having that salty flop sweat...
M2W4D1 + Insanity:Asylum Day1= Craziness
I got up late today so my original plan was to do P90X in the morning and Asylum at night. I did Asylum when i got home from work and instanly transitioned into P90X Yoga-X because this is my “recovery” week. Asylum - This shit is crazy! So this is only my day one but the issue is not so much Cardio difficulty as just basic coordination! I”m a black belt, played football...
Insanity: Asylum Fit Test
Ok so I lied about not doing anything today. Its been sitting on my self for a week and i’ve been dying to get started so I took the Asylum fit test about 30 minutes ago…WOW. I”m dripping sweat…it was just a fit test. So my plan is to start Asylum next week and do it in the morning and P90X in the afternoon…or vice versa depending on what’s going on. I know...
Tomorrow I’ll wake up, do some P90X Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice sex And she’s gonna scream out: ‘This is Great’ (Oh my god, this is great) Yeah I might mess around, get my college degree I bet my old man will be so proud of me But sorry pops, you’ll just have to wait Oh, oh Yes I said it I said it I said it ‘cause I can ...
Warrior Dash done!
The Warrior Dash is finished and i have horn hat and shinny medallion that says I survived the Warrior Dash 2011. Survive is the operative word. It was a pretty tough course being slippery and lots of hills. The structures were not that bad to climb but the heat and the hills made it rough. I’ll post pics and stuff tomorrow I is tired.
Magical Warrior shoes of Vibram are on. Time to partake in them meal of destiny. Warrior Dash Let’s Go!
M2W3D5 Sophia is annoying
Legs and Back and abs! I did it! I did it, I did it, I freaking did it! The entire way home from work i was debating if I was going to do this or not and I finally came to the conclusion that I signed on to do P90X! That means I do every workout or an equivalent, every day i’m suppose to workout and I make it X like! That means that when i though hard and long I’ve done the Legs...
Should I work Legs and back today?
That is the question for all my tumblr family. Today is leg/back and ab ripper x. I have a warrior dash run tomorrow. Working legs and back has never bothered me for any of the other 5k’s but I feel tired and the Warrior Dash is a 5k obstical course. So please advise
Running on empty
talk about pushing through a run. This week I started running 1.5 miles on the track instead of 1. it doesn’t seem like that much longer of a distance until you really don’t feel like doing it and then you’re pushing for that last .5 mile. I ran the track barefoot and stepped on a pretty large rock but it didn’t bother me to much, my feet are getting stronger. My...
I can solidly say that I actually look forward to Yoga now! I worked from home today so I just finished doing yoga and I think this is probably one of the best stretching sessions I’ve had in a long time. The time I spend doing it hasn’t changed (I still can’t get past warrior 3) but the deepness and quality of the first 50 minutes of this workout are top notch! As I write...

M2W3D3 Keep driving
Biceps, back and ab ripper x Another morning starting out just pressing play but pushing through to a pretty intense workout. I’ve been forcing myself to be consistent with the weights I use and even if it feels to light, I just do more reps. I’m big and strong and can easily curl about 100lbs. I”m working out with 20’s and 25’s and I get a solid burn going so...
Just keep running
I”m sad, my 8 yr old son is moving back down state . So today i’m running to beat the frustration. I”m running through the pain of slight shin splints and i’m running because I can’t really do anything else. I so didn’t feel like doing this run tonight. Me feet initlally didn’t want to move and then the music started on random suffle and the very first...
M2W3D2 "You can do anything for 30 seconds!" -Tony...
This morning started out as a Just Press Play and make it through this session. I woke up way to early and completely didn’t feel like jumping around at 4 am (go figure). As I started to warm up and push through the first round of exercises, the fire lit and the next round became more intense and the fire continued to grow. By the end i’m dripping sweat and pushing to keep up or...
I’m up because I can’t sleep. It’s 3:15 am and in 45 minutes i’ll be doing my workout and getting ready for work. The warrior dash in in 4 days and I was looking at blogs and pictures, this is going to be fun! I can feel i’m coming down with something as my throat is sore and when i blow my nose it’s nasty! I’m sure you wanted to know that,...
Extra leg workout
Full train equals extra leg workout standing for a hour
I can tell i’m on week 3 of this month. I”m sore and tired and i’m having to push harder to do the workouts effectively. Statistically, this is the time when most people quit P90X (actually it between week4 and week 6). This is kind of the plateau point where you can push through to a fitter stronger you or you can kind of just hangout and go through the motions. I’m...
barefoot for the win
Just finished my Sunday night barefoot run on the track. I’ve gone from 1 mile to 1.5 miles barefoot. I jogged down to the track in my vibrams and ran back in my vibrams so total distance is probably around 2.5 miles. The air is very cool so the difficulty this time out was my lungs and the weezing. I pushed through but it was a tough one. I’m getting ready to do the warrior dash...

Flash mob experience
This was a lot of fun! It happened in Naperville Illinois right out side of a busy resturant where everyone was eating on the patio’s. Of course I was one of three guys and the ONLY black male so when this hits YOUTUBE, I will stick out like a sore thumb in my red t-shirt and vibrams. The routine was simple and fun, about 40 people were there doing it in unison. We met ahead of time at...
M2W2D6 Don't bang your joints!
Kenpo-X It was a decent workout this morning, primarily becasue i’m still sore from last night and had to work a tad harder to maintain form. I still get bored with the workout around 15 minutes left in the workout but that’s my issue, not anything to do with the robot karate people sweating all over my tv. I didn’t run last night as was tempted to grab my son and go to the...

M2W2D5 Why does Tony Horton hate me?
Legs and freak’in back! I so don’t like working legs, I really don’t liking working legs on friday afternoon. I know I say this ever goddamn week, it hasn’t gotten any better. I’m getting better and stronger at it but the actual workout has not an anyway warmed my heart or made me thing “wow, this is really beneficial for my overall health.” Also...

M2 Day 39 Tippy Toes
Yoga-X morning and I don’t think i’ve been so glad to stretch in ages. I’ve been more tired this month than last month and that’s probably because I’ve added running to my mix but also becaue i’m working harder during the routines. I still can’t seem to get past Warrior Three. Must have some mental block I need to power through but i’ll keep...
So I run
I run, because no matter what I do, it’s not enough I run, because I need to feel the pain I run, because I have failed you and you won’t let me forget I run, because I can fail you and you don’t know it yet. I run to drown out the sound of buzzing in my ear I run because the old me is out there waiting in the distance I run because i’m shediding the drama I run because I...
M2W2D3 "Got your tickets to the gun show?"
Month 2 Day 38, back bi’s and ab ripper X! This month, the entire phase 2 of P90X, at least for me, is an exercise in consistency and pushing play even when i don’t feel like it. I have always have large strong bicepts and arms, the trick for me is not doing tons of weight and lifting to tone more and sculpt. I can tell the workouts are getting easier becaue i’m beginning to...

M2W2D2 Epic Fail!
Today’s workout is a bust! I started out doing Insanity Plyo and decided 15 minutes into this workout that it’s not going to happen. I switched to Plyo-X which I was suppose to be doing anyway and i’m toasted….epic fail! I made it half way through the workout and I just don’t want to move anymore. I’m exhausted! It’s hot out, I didn’t eat enough...
Night time nanny
Is there a such thing as a night time only nanny? someone who’s sole responcibility is to take care of a child at night so the parents can sleep? If not I think we should seriously consider creating this position. Just sayin.
