Phase II – Week 5 of p90x is in the can…almost literally.

Finished week 5, which in p90x is the first week of Phase II. This is where you add a bit more carbs into your diet and start confusing your muscles by introducing some change into your workout. The first time through p90x I noticed that after the “recovery” week I had trouble getting going again. This week was no different. I’m not sure if it was the recovery week or if it was just the change in the routine, but I was absolutely crushed after each resistance workout. Legs and Back was the worst. I really struggled to get...

Hey gang, just wanted to chime in with the results of phase one of P90x. This is really my second round going through the program. I finished round one somewhere around June of last year. Then I took a few months off to mountain bike and try to be active without the stress of P90x, but I’m back in the saddle.

Sorry about missing last week…here’s the scoop though.

I still haven’t missed a day for round 2 of p90x. I just finished week 3 on Friday and am now on to the “rest” week. Rest basically means 2 days of Yoga, 1 day of Kenpo, 2 days of Core Synergistics (ugh…brutal), and 2 days of stretching.

Week one of round two of p90x is now in the bag. As I look back on the week, I’m pretty pleased. I made it through every workout, some with better success than others. I believe my new idea of starting on Saturday rather than Monday is working extremely well. So here is a recap:

Posted by on 5:22 pm in Uncategorized | 7 comments

I’m getting ready to start my second pass through p90x. My first time through was amazing. Out of the 90 day program I missed one day due to travel (yoga day). The program worked wonders for me.

You can see pictures of my first round later in the post. Read on!

Carry Me Outro! Me playing guitar…

Posted by on 8:56 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Sound isn’t too good on this, but I thought I would post it anyway. (Video sucks for that matter too!) I’ll get used to the camera and encoding eventually. Anyway, this is a song called Carry Me. It will be on the next Graphic Calm CD. (Actually the first Graphic Calm CD!) It’s important to note that the vocals are a scratch track and the guitar part I’m laying down here is pretty low in the control room mix. Other than...
