Multiply Your Muscles

Follow this simple formula to build more muscle:
Multiply the amount of weight you lift for a particular
exercise by the total number of times you lift it. Try
to increase that number every workout by lifting heavier
weights, increasing your repetitions, or doing more sets.

Always try to do 1 more rep than you did last time :) This is why it is very important to keep a workout log.

Getting Ready for P90X+

Monday, May 14, 2012

My new toys have arrived :) I don't like having any obstacles in my mind. It was time for me to move up.




The bench doesn't have anything to do with P90X+ , but I was thinking of incorporating some kind of doubles routine with it.




out with the old and in with the new :)

Time to "BRING IT"!!!!!

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.
