Drink Up, Get Lean

Drink low-fat milk. Scientists in Canada found that
people who consumed more than 600 milligrams of
calcium a day—roughly the amount in 2 cups of milk,
a cup of broccoli, and a half cup of cottage cheese—had
lower body fat than those who consumed less than 600 milligrams a day.

    I love milk, but it discourages me that I have to count the calories. I'd drink 2 cups of milk with dinner every night if I could afford the calories. I resent that I have to limit something as good as milk. BTW, I'm in Canada and am familiar with the studies, but be careful, many are done by dairy organizations. I recently read an article debunking the claim because the people studied had high levels of activity and low caloric intakes already.

Run Injury-Free

One week out of every six, cut your weekly training
mileage and frequency in half. You'll give your body
a better chance to recover, and you'll avoid permanent,
nagging injuries.


Remember that it is just as important for your muscles to have rest and recovery time as it is too push them.

Tomorrow is my last day of Round 3 of P90X and I am also running a 5k "Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure"

Next week starts P90X+


Have a great weekend!

    enjoy your race!

I'm looking for something after P90X. Suggestions? I've done P90X, TurboFire and a P90X/TurboFire Hybrid. I thought about getting the one-on-one workouts, Insanity or P90X+. Just looking for an opinion.

Climb Like Spiderman

For rock or wall climbing, buy shoes that fit your bare feet so tightly
you can stand but not walk comfortably. They'll give you optimal
control, and you'll be better able to use your legs—the key to successful climbing.

Do More Chinups

Don't think about pulling yourself up when you do
chinups. Instead, imagine pulling your elbows down.
The exercise will seem easier.

I know a lot of us could only do 1 or 2 of these when we started P90X. By the end we could 5 or 6. That is GREAT progress!!! I have noticed that this exercise uses a lot of upper body muscles. Like Tony says, "I hate it, but I love it!"

Bench More Now

Look at your dominant hand—without turning your head
—while you're bench-pressing. You'll be able to lift more weight.

Has anyone tried this? If so, please let me know if it true. If I close my eyes and picture myself as a bodybuilder, will I also be able to lift more?
