If I have any loyal readers who still have me in their RSS readers, my absence from this blog for the past many months has been long forgotten. But going forward, since I see that I still get a rather... Continue reading

Why did you go in for seconds on the pie at your mom's house? Why did you skip all but one of your workouts last week? What's your excuse? I've said this to my own face in the mirror when... Continue reading

The end of another year. New Year's Eve is next week and I am sure that everybody is thinking about what new transformations they want to make in 2011. I, for one, finished both the Beginner and Intermediate progams from... Continue reading

While I was swapping plates between front squat sets this morning, a guy working out nearby said, "hey, I like your towel method." I was like, "eh, wha?" "Your towel method," he said again, pointing at the towel I had... Continue reading

This phase of the workout introduces something I'd never heard of before getting this book called "wave loading." It's pretty cool. Check it: Three sets of warmups One set of 6 reps. One set of 1 rep, heavy. One set... Continue reading

Your link doesn't work.
If you are talking about the photo on THIS post, that was taken at the end of my first round of P90X, after doing a round of P90 right before it. If you are talking about the photo on my most recent post September 9, 2010, then no it wasn't, I haven't done P90X in well over a year up to this point. I am currently in the middle of the Men's Health Book of Muscle program, which has zero cardio, and just weighed myself this morning at 171. I'm going to get down to 169 and then alter the diet for maximum mass gain, which in this case will be GOMAD for 30 or 60 days, or until further notice (depending on how it goes).

New workouts for the next part of Stage 3. I took a week off for my sister's wedding, which coincided with the end of the previous workouts (11-13). I typically go 6 weeks between breaks, but it's perfectly acceptable to... Continue reading

..But I'm more convinced than ever that diet plays a key role in physical transformations in particular and overall great health in general. Strength, conditioning, and flexibility fill out the rest of the cast. But without a proper, balanced, clean... Continue reading

All those sets of squats have my quads feeling like I've been caned. And, despite the pain and suffering (which I like), I think I am going to do an extra workout of each, A, B, and C because I... Continue reading

Starting week 11 tomorrow with Workout A. You can see that this part of the program only has two main exercises, one "assistance" exercise, and then abs. Lots of sets, though. I'm really looking forward to this one because I... Continue reading

I have deployed to the North Lands for work and it's very hectic. Unlike all of my other jobs this year, I haven't had time to workout this week or really eat very well. The diet is kinda good, but... Continue reading

No, I mean REALLY good. So during my workout this morning I made a conscious effort to ignore lactic acid burn. I did this during P90X Ab Ripper and found myself easily pushing through plateaus (can you say "Fifer Scissors?").... Continue reading

So here are the newest workout logs for this stage of the program. I'm happy to see no more loathsome pistol squats or 6 count reps. But this section introduces strip sets, one and a half rep sets, and breathing... Continue reading

So today, much to my surprise, I finished the first 9 workouts of the Intermediate Program (Men's Health Book of Muscle, for those just joining us). I had to bump a workout to the next week at some time in... Continue reading

I'm pleased to say that since I have been adhering 90/10 to the diet, that I have actually dropped about 2 pounds over the past couple of weeks. I'm displeased that I don't suddenly overnight look Ryan Reynolds ripped because... Continue reading

So my workout from Monday (my first chest workout on the Intermediate Program) has my pecs feeling like they're being pulled off my chest with meat hooks. Try this: 8 reps of bench press, feet on the bench, and with... Continue reading

So I ended the Beginner Program with a bang.. 225 on my deadlifts this morning. Bam! Time for a recovery week and then on to the Intermediate Program! I'm stoked. Continue reading

Just a quick numbers check-in.. 215 pound deadlifts, 135 pound squats. Of course, the guy who got on the squat rack after me put up 500 for real pounds in his last set of squats (I had to break out... Continue reading

So I put 140 up 8 times for my first set of bench press when I was supposed to only be able to do 6 of 135. Looks like I'm adding some weight next time. Very well, proceed. Continue reading

Sometimes I have to remind myself that transformation takes time and that each and every single millimeter of new muscle has to be earned through hard work. Back when I was doing P90, I was so ready to be in... Continue reading
