I just crushed Chest and Back

And I am getting stronger and feeling great. I am doing great with my push ups and I am so very grateful to have the lat pull down machine at my disposal now because I feel like I am accomplishing something. I am using 80 pounds and will likely increase the weights next week. During the first round last year I used to feel so defeated with this workout but now I am feeling proud and strong... it is a nice feeling.

My knee is beginning to flare up again... just in time for Plyo, GREAT! I will be pushing play despite the bad knee but will be modifying some of the lunges. I will also take a couple of pain killers before the workout and I should be fine.

Here are the stats from last night:

Calories: 349
Avg HR: 117
Max HR: 155

Make it a great day!

That is awesome news!!! So glad you are doing so well. I'm sure the new equipment is helping and making it more fun too which is great.

Thanks for the nice compliment on my blog today. :) Good luck with plyo today. We have that today too as I just wasn't feeling it yesterday and did shoulders & arms instead. Today there are no excuses.

Love it! Nice that you have such a clear idea of what you are doing; I am just floundering a bit. Wouldnt it be too cool if I were working out WITH you? Guide me, wise one!

Feeling empowered and strong is such an amazing feeling! Glad you are crushing this round!

I actually did Plyo X this morning as my neck is still sore and I always found this workout more lower body focused. Enjoy that tonight as I did this morning! (Hopefully you read that with lots of sarcasm!).

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. What a great site you have - my sister and friend both love P90X. I hope to do Insanity not too long after the little guy arrives. I hope that your knee feels better:)

Wow, you're doing P90X? Good for you... that looks really intense!

I'm stopping by from SITS! Yours was the comment above mine. I hope you've had a great week and that you'll stop by when you get a chance.
