DalyDose of Fitness: 5 Pushups (w/ Video)


I teach a Spin/Sculpt class at RPM Fitness Studio on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 am.  We do Spinning until about 10:30 and then we move over to the other studio to work on the sculpting portion.  We usually only get about 20 minutes in there, so I’ve been trying to come up with ways to get workouts done in short amounts of time.  For example, we had tried working up to 100 pushups by doing them in sets of 20, but we don’t have time to run through a circuit 5 times.  I decided to try these pushups out and I debuted them to the class a couple of weeks ago and I’m happy to say that people were in pain the day after.  Fear not, for you too can feel the pain of JD’s “5” Style Pushup.

DalyDose of…Insanity Day 15

Yes, today was Day 15 of my journey with Shaun T and his Insanity workout.  As you know this is part of my Total Package Mission, so I’m digging deep.  I submit the following video as Exhibit A.

DalyDose of…Insanity Plyo-Cardio Abs


Earlier, I did Day 10 of “Insanity”, which is the Plyometric Cardio Circuit.  It’s a great butt kicker and it lets you know that you’re not in as good of shape as you think you are. Fortunately for me, I was under no world-class athlete delusions.  I am trying to return to warrior shape.

I know many of you think, that because I walk around being JD that it is simple.  Well, I’m here to tell you that it is hard work.  It’s not easy being The Total Package and if you read my earlier blog entry on the subject, you know this needs to be the goal of every man in search of a partner these days.  Seriously, I’m still available.

So far, I’ve posted a daily post-workout picture on Facebook.  For Day 10, I thought I’d spice it up and add some video.  I might do this once a week if people want to see me suffering in pain.  Anyway, here’s the ab-moves demo video that I threw together:

*wow…I need to vacuum and it looks like I found a pen! Smile
