If you read my blog with any sort of regularity (which I’m assuming the answer is no since I don’t even update it regularly like I probably should) you know that I was going to try doing a new workout routine. Well, after a lot (and I mean a lot) of false starts, I’m finally getting back into the habit of working out. Unfortunately, I let school get in the way of my working out and it wasn’t exactly the best thing for me to do. So, starting last week I restarted Insanity! to work on removing the fat I let add up on my body. However, I’m not going to let school take all the blame since I also began to eat more sweets and other more unhealthy things than I probably should have.
Now, do I think that I’ll attempt my hybrid Insanity! / P90X? I don’t really think I will, but I am going to work in actual muscle building workouts since as much as I love cardio, it removes a lot of fat but doesn’t do a lot to add bulk to my frame. And if you’ve ever seen me I am a pretty skinny guy who could use a little more bulk. So, is doing a P90X / Insanity mix the right thing to do? Or should I take a more traditional weight-lifting routine approach?
If I was going to do Insanity / P90X I think M/W/F would be P90X and T-Th-Sat (maybe even Sunday depending on how I feel) would be Insanity. But, if I’m aiming toward the traditional weight-lifting since I have access to a weight-machine, I suppose I could do a lot of exercises on that (which I’d have to look up which ones to use).
Oh well, I’m just rambling at this point because my first order of business is to get back to eating more healthily and knocking off the fat I’ve accumulated. Until then, I can back burner / slowly research the weight lifting routines without impacting what I’m currently doing. Feel free to chime in in the comments section if you have an idea for what I should be doing.
And, since it is Memorial Day, I want to thank all the Armed Forces for being out there and putting their lives on the line and this is a day of celebration and we should all be having a great time! Happy Memorial Day!
