Hi, how have you been, haven't seen you post here in a while. Still training with the P90X2 program? How has it been? Getting the results you were hoping for with it?

Oh gods, I was but then I took a break to train for my 5K. Did the 5K and promptly became the sickest I've been in years after, that lasted a week. Finally recovered and took up running again, then I woke up one day with a neck/back/shoulder injury so debilitating I was mostly bedridden for a couple more weeks. Then I tried AGAIN and got sick for another couple with sinusitis and an ear infection.

Past few months have not been kind to me. :-/ I'm easing back into things and will probably do it or another program in a few weeks once I'm back on track.

Don't know what it is about up here. I got sick also last week. I hope I don't get knocked down this winter again. I think the super cold weather is harsh and took its toll on my body. I've only been out here for 2 yrs and I guess haven't gotten used to it yet.

I hope things get better and you finish off the end of this year strong :boxer: :boxer: :mrgreen:

Thanks! and ow, yeah, something's up. :-/

I normally get a sinus infection at the start and at the end of winter. This year it arrived VERY early, I suspect due to the fact that the allergy season this year was much more harsh than usual and the weather has been chaotic.

In the meantime, eating clean and doing something of a detox to get my insides back into shape.

I am looking for a good ab routine come the end of January. Is it better than the ab ripper x? :boxer:

I'll put it like this: I did NO crunches during that HIIT workout, two days later I'm still sore. My abs are the leanest part of me and I have to get creative to get any sort of soreness/work done there. Ab Ripper X is awesome as is Tummy Tuck from Brazil Butt Lift, but I'm feeling muscles in my lower abs I typically don't get worked on! I did some more floor work towards the end of today's workout (Combat 60 Ultimate Cardio Fighter) so I'll let you know how much more sore I am after that.

I just sneezed and felt it. :shock:

I really like hanging ab raises for my abs. I also do floor crunches but I bring my upper body up to meet my lower. In both cases I strap weights to my ankles. I also do static holds for my abs as well, and I do them after I run because my trunk is usually pretty knackered from holding me upright. My ab routine is:

Hanging abs 2x12, Floor crunches 2x12, static crunches, 2x30+ sec, Obliques, loaded 3x10 (Using 78#) now for each side, making sure to bend at the hip.
Live cautiously to make it safely to death

No place to hang from in my basement, so I do a lot of standing work and floor work for my abs. I'm fondest of standing work.

I think I'm pretty spoiled; my body is leanest in my midsection so developing abs for me is easy. It's toning upper arms, thighs, and glutes which are frequently the trouble.
