Swimming Ladders

When I was in elementary school, we used to run "ladders" in gym class. I don't know if they are still called that now. It was essentially a form of HIIT. You would run short distances at maximum intensity, rest briefly, then repeat. I'm try... Read more

I really wanted to do strength training today, but I'd like to think that I've learned things as I go along this exercise journey. My body was sore from exercising I spent the hour stretching instead. I feel better already and a... Read more

I am consistently amazed at how this workout continues to challenge me. I have been doing this for over a year now (basically on a weekly basis) and still it makes me sweat and my muscles burn like few other things. Thanks, Tony!... Read more

Whatever your morning routine is, it will be reflected in how you go to sleep. Vice-versa is also true. If you lie in bed and hit the snooze in the morning, it will likely take you awhile to fall asleep at night. If you get right out of bed a... Read more

Saturday, June 13, 2009      0 comments

I'm not sure if I'm using the word "trifecta" correctly or not. That being said, on the days that I manage to get 8 hours of sleep, eat well, and get my workout in first thing in the morning...well, I just feel amazing. I'm working hard to ach... Read more

I went to my daughter's preschool graduation last night, entitled "Just Desserts." The food was what you would expect given the name. I have been staying away from sweets pretty well for the last several days (and have had much better workouts... Read more

I cut my left thumb this weekend while chopping onions. As my father frequently tells me, "It will sure feel good when it quits hurting." No permanent damage done, but I did decide to skip my swim this morning due to the cut. I thought a litt... Read more

I have been gradually introducing the cardio portions of these into my regular P90X workouts. They are definitely faster paced with less breaks so I am using my pause button more frequently. I anticipate including the strength training routine... Read more

It is so much harder to work out the next day when I've made bad food choices the day before. Not getting enough sleep also makes for a lousy next-day workout. I don't know if my body's getting more fussy about its fuel--or I'm working out har... Read more
