So it’s been a long time since I’ve updated this site. I’ve been losing weight, working out very hard and keeping the nutritional area really solid. I am really happy being an Emerald Independent Beachbody Coach. It has helped me lose lots of weight and most of all allowed me to help others get the same results. I have to say that I love P90X and I will keep doing it, but I am really loving what Erwan LeCorre and MovNat has done to my perspective on fitness. I’ve been adding in P90X routines in what I am calling “Primal” working out and that I think is really helping me understand about how to workout. This is why [I believe] people give up on working out not knowing how to work out.

MaceLast week I constructed a Mace or Gada. It is a weapon yet, I am using this for working the core muscles. I never intend to use this on a human other than to get stronger muscles. Its construction was pretty simple. Buy a post hole digger handle from the Depot ($8), a 80# bag of concrete ($4) and a kids mini basketball ($3). Cut a hole large enough for the handle to fit in, mix the concrete, pour in, insert handle (I added a few doll rods in the pre drilled holes to bond to the concrete) and let sit overnight. I painted it black to look real. That is pretty much it. So here is the workout I’ve been doing this week. I plan on one more week of this to see how I feel. So far I really like this routine.
