So I'm actually at the point where I'm starting to enjoy running again. Doing 30 minutes a day slowly building up my stamina so hopefully I can get to the point of doing just straight 30 minutes soon. Progress is a process.

With the P90X, I decided to drop the Yoga X out of the routine. It's an hour & a half, and I honestly don't have that kind of time to spare, so in it's place, I'm jogging now. I run over a mile every "Yoga X" day. I just go on Mapquest.com & try to find different 1+ mile routes so I don't get bored of the same old thing.

Yeah people who haven't seen me since college (about 3 years) are always blown away when they see me now. Honestly a big part of my motivation to keep going is cuz i enjoy people's reactions. Is it vain and petty? Yeah. But hey whatever I can use as motivation is appreciated i guess

absolutely. i would be lying if i said vanity has nothing to do with why I work out so much. but the vanity has a positive result, good health so i see nothing wrong with it.

I used to be skinny, so my nickname is "bony tony". people who haven't known me long always ask why they call me bony cuz i'm anything but. if it's a girl i would just tell them the nickname is referring to between my legs

I'm doing that shit too. But I think I keep checking myself in the mirror to see the changes I've made.

I've done that lots of times, my stomach is the last thing changing. I like to make sure I'm still doing good on that.

I finally got up to 20 bodyweight pull ups. Seems to be an exercise that the more often you do it in a week, the better you get at it, unlike most of my compound exercises like bench, squat, deadlift, etc.

Think I'll be sticking to strictly weighted pull ups now, and go for more strength. Maybe 5-8 reps.

^ You can actually do that with any movement. Knock out a couple of reps a day without getting tired and eventually it'll become easier. I haven't tried it yet but it makes a lot of sense. As long as you dont break down the muscle and call it "practice," the chances you burn out are much smaller plus you get that benefit of making the movement more efficient. Pavel calls it "greasing the groove."

Well I've been doing pull up variations 3 times a week, and since last week I've been doing weighted ones. Like you said, I don't think I've become stronger or anything, simply learnt how to move more efficiently throughout the movement; simply from practicing it more.

By the way, I know chin-ups, palms facing towards you are meant to be the easiest, but does anyone find the parallel grip the easiest with the palms facing each other?

My sister's bf was the No. 2 ranked rock climber in the country for his age-group at one point. He is absolutely ripped up, and ridiculously strong. Rock climbing in a gym or outdoors also seems like a lot of fun and very challenging. I want to try it.

Down 17lbs to 208lbs in a month.
Feel good too since I'm playing ball a bit again and feel a lot lighter and quicker on the court. Haven't lost any strength either as I'm doing the same weight and reps on all my compound exercises.

How's everyone else holding up?
