Soylent 7-Day Experiment

I’ve been reading more about Soylent and people experimenting living on it for a week (or more). I’ve thought about doing something similar w/ my shake recipe for 7 days. I think my shake is mostly better for you (made of…

Project Kratos Workout: Day 5

5

This workout probably felt the best (most productive). I really nailed the Inverted Row (alternate) and felt it the next day (this workout was a few days ago). Overall, I still like the workout, but I still need to work…

Project Kratos Workout: Day 3

k3

I did the third workout yesterday. It went well – felt good and was hard to do. I’m working more on the form so my reps aren’t getting higher… but that’s good b/c ultimately they’re better reps. I still feel…

Soylent Food Replacement Experiements

soylent

I’d say if you’re looking to just stay alive Soylent might be your thing. UPDATE: I used my shake recipe for a 1-week experiment. Otherwise, I’d stick to real food w/ all the nutrients AND enzymes, probiotics, macro/micronutrients, variety, taste, etc.! If…

Kratos: Day 2

k2

I did my second Kratos workout yesterday (first workout). It was tough – I felt I did a bit better w/ the form, but not much more in reps. That’s fine – I want to get it right. It was…

Kratos: Day 1

k1

Just finished day 1 of Kratos. I decided to go ahead and start since… I wanted to. It was pretty rough… in a good way. I used a timer to shoot for 90 seconds and did about the right number…

My Current Workout

dumb-bells2-986735-m

This month, the month after P90X3, I’m taking it a bit… not easy… simpler. I do 1 muscle group per day: bicep, tricep, chest, back, abs, shoulders, legs. Then I do the elliptical for 30-60 mins. For the muscle group…

P90X3 Review and Results

p90x3

I did P90X (multiple times) a few years ago and got great results. I lost weight, gained muscle and flexibility, felt better and generally improved my fitness. So I wanted to review my thoughts on P90X3 there… While it wasn’t…

P90X2 Medicine Balls

p90x2medicineballs

Medicine balls are pretty pricey. But these are about half the price of the Beachbody P90X2 medicine balls. The Valeo 4 lb. medicine ball has high ratings on Amazon and is available for free shipping (for orders over $35). Similarly…

P90X3 Creatine

p90x3 creatine

I’ve used creatine off and on for a few years. I like Dymatize Creatine b/c I find their products tend to be more natural, higher quality and are consistent across the brand. Also, they tend to be moderately priced. I started…

P90X3 Pushup Bar PowerStands

P90X3 PowerStands

I believe a pushup is greatly improved by using some form of pushup bar. I’ve used bars, dumbbells and more. If you used dumbbells, it’s harder if they’re round and can roll. The Tony Horton PowerStands are good, but kinda…

P90X3 Heart Rate Monitor

p90x3heartratemonitor

It seems the suggested Beachbody heart rate monitor is the Bowflex Strapless monitor. I haven’t been impressed with strapless monitors though they are nice and convenient. And they are more expensive. I’ve had good success w/ the Omron HR-100CN. It…
