Dave, I definately want to do the routine with you. The only exception is I really like the chest back and balls so I may substitute that in...if it makes sense for core ball sandwich

Day 4 is in the books! Today was Killer Abs followed by Patience Hummingbird. I wasn't really too sure I'd get motivated to do this one, but after doing it I found I really love this combo! Abs go by really quickly, and then its into yoga. The whole is done in less than an hour quick is about the time I allot myself each day for working out.

Tomorrow... Shoulders & Arms 2. Haven't done this workout yet, so I'm looking forward to it as Shoulders & Arms from P90X was one of my favorite workouts.

Hey Dave

I currently follow a couple of threads over on the P90X message boards that keep me accountable, but have always hoped someone would start one up here on the 1 on 1 boards to post daily accountability.

I am also doing a One on One hybrid that I started at the beginning of this week. I actually started a few weeks ago, but hurt my shoulder playing hockey so I had to take some time off, re-gather my thoughts and re-plan my routine. It is a 9-week schedule that concludes the day before I fly down to Mexico to spend a week on the beach! The schedule is not as well rounded as I am trying to gain a bit of mass to look good on the beach (I know, I shouldn't be so cosmetic!) I will post my 9-week schedule below.

Today was Total Body Plus for me. I haven't done this workout in months, and although I knew going into it that it was going to be a monster, it always kills me! I can't quite put my finger on why it is such a tough workout for me because it is not like you are pushing serious weight, but I think the combination of it being so fast-paced with doing so many different exercises that cover the entire body that does it!

I will admit that I definitely noticed huge improvements since the last time I did this routine, even after months away from it. Also, even though my shoulder was still a bit tight/sore this morning, I noticed a HUGE increase in my pushup strength. The last week and a half or so since I injured my shoulder I have noticed the overall weakness I had during pushups. But this morning I was really improving already, hopefully this is a sign that I am getting back to 100%.

My schedule:

Weeks 1-3
S - Upper Plus
M - Back & Belly and Butt & Belly
T - Road Warrior
W - Cardio Confusion and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Total Body Plus
F - Kenpo (1 lb weighted gloves)
S - Abs/Core Plus and Yoga

Weeks 4-6
S - Back & Biceps
M - Plyometrics (Week4 no weight, Week5 10lb vest, Week6 20lb vest) and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Chest, Back & Balls
W - Super Cardio and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Shoulders & Arms 2
F - Kenpo Cardio + (1 lb weighted gloves)
S - Ab Ripper X2 and Yoga

Week 7
S - 30-15 (20lb vest)
M - Plyo Legs (no weight) and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Diamond Delts and Just Arms
W - Interval X and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Base & Back
F - Medicine Ball Core Cardio
S - Iso Abs and Yoga

Weeks 8,9
S - AM: 30-15 (20lb vest) PM: Muscle Stack 1
M - Plyo Legs (Week8 10lb vest, Week9 20lb vest) and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - AM: Diamond Delts and Just Arms PM: Muscle Stack 2
W - Interval X and 1st half of Killer Abs (with weight)
T - Base & Back
F - Medicine Ball Core Cardio
S - Iso Abs and Yoga

A couple of clarifications. Yoga will be whatever I feel like for the day. I will also be playing hockey for an hour on Fridays or Saturday nights (have 1 game a week, varies in time and date). The "Muscle Stacks" is something I read from a trainer online. The principle is to train the same muscles you blasted, 8-10 hours after a workout with a handful of exercises. This increases the muscle damage and encourages muscles growth. For example, I would complete 30-15 in the morning, and then in the evening do a few sets of some chest flys, back flys, etc. This should only be done for a maximum of 2 weeks at a time (that is why I am only doing it 2 times, for 2 weeks). Ask any other questions you may have!

I am out for now.

Hey Tyler

Great to have you come along for the ride. No reason why we can't continue to compare notes and keep each other accountable even though we're doing different workouts.

I agree about Total Body Plus - the pace of it kicks you pretty hard. I find I need to pause it a lot just to get my dumbbells set.

Keep checking in.

Good Morning

Got up and did Kenpo X this morning with my new weighted gloves. It was a decent workout, and the gloves definitely added some intensity, but still not really what I was looking for. Plus, since I haven't used that disc in so long, and it has basically been sitting around, it was a little scratched and dusty so the whole workout kept skipping on me. It did its job for today at least and got an ok sweat going but I probably won't be doing it again. I will switch Kenpo out for Kenpo Cardio+ for the next two weeks in this phase.

Dave - Yeah, I like the odd pause as well so that I can log my numbers and *ahem* take an extra few breaths *ahem* lol

I am out for now. I am heading to the doctor's for an annual checkup, my shoulder has been just a bit naggy still so I will mention it to her and see if I can get something to speed up the healing. Everyone enjoy their Friday!

Hey, have you thought about light ankle weights for Kenpo as well? That could add some intensity.

RE: One on One Routine starting November 1
11/5/10 10:37 AM as a reply to CoachDaveXer.
I have heard that ankle weights can actually throw off your leg's biomechanics. Basically, it is not natural to have weight on your ankles so your body is not used to that type of weight increase so for kicks and lunges, etc, you actually increase your risk of injury. Gloves or holding onto weights in your hand is natural because your body is used to carry weight in your hand in everyday activities and you have muscles, ligaments and tendons in place to support that.

I wear a weighted vest for my leg routines which gives me PLENTY of additional intensity that I am looking for there. I just thought that I would give both Kenpo workout another try since they have just been sitting there collecting dust emoticon Now that I have tried Kenpo X again, I can comfortably say I will never do it again, hehehe

Good Morning

This morning was just Abs/Core Plus for me. Nice, short workout to limber up a bit and then I have hockey tonight. We are in first place out of 8 teams, playing the 3rd place team tonight so it should be a great game.

Doctor figures the shoulder is a AC strain (Acromioclavicular Ligament). She says just to keep icing it, takes a few weeks to heal so probably a week or two more. Can't really do anything to injure it further besides maybe hitting the shoulder hard again. This is a common sports injury, especially in football.

That is it for me today. I have a full list of chores and errands to do today, everyone enjoy their Saturday and don't forget to set your clocks back tonight!

Good Morning

Haven't done my workout just yet, but I am heading down to the home gym in a few minutes to do Upper Plus.

Last night we had a terrible hockey game. We lost 7-2!!! Everybody played bad, and it didn't help either that our goalie let in a few soft ones to let them gain some momentum. Oh well, we can't win them all, we will re-focus for next week.

On the bright side, my shoulder feels a lot better this morning! It was a bit tweaky during the hockey game but feels really good this morning...we will see how that continues.

I am out for now folks, going to procrastinate for a little longer and then heading to do my workout, enjoy your Sunday, try not to be too upset when it gets dark and hour earlier tonight, haha.

Howdy mleander - great to have you on board!

tbone - bummer about the hockey, and also about the shoulder. Will you take it easy over the next couple of weeks to let it heal? Hope this doesn't stop you achieving your goals in the short term.

I've made a couple of tweaks to my rotation as I got the new Yoga:MC2 and see that Plyocide is coming next month. Think these will definitely find a home in my routine. See my updated rotation below.

Dave,
looks good...I like how you alternate the cardio aspects of your workout.
Today was a great family day but workouts did not go as planned. My wife actually decided to join in the workout segment today..so we did Cardio Intervals...then my daughter wanted to do tony and hte kids with me ...so i did that also...I am planning on doing 100-30-20 with that extra hour in the morning, monday, before my readjustment to the time change.

tyler that stinks....hope for a quick recovery..and i agree a one on one workout back and forth is great...good luck

Mike

Thanks. It takes adjustments from time to time to allow for things that come up. I did 100/30/20 yesterday instead of today as I'm traveling for work all day today. So today is my rest day instead.

100/30/20 can be a reasonably easy workout in comparison to some of the others. Yesterday when I did the workout, I wore a weight vest during the pushups to up the intensity. Worked really well!

mleander, it's great great your kids want to do workouts :-) Great way to get some healthy habits early in their lives.

Good Morning

This morning I got up and got into the home gym to do Back & Belly followed by Butt & Belly. That is a wicked combination because the first round hits the upper body pretty nicely and the core as well and then the second round smokes the legs and finishes off the core. The last few core moves in Butt & belly always kill me and my form goes south big time so I have to fight hard to keep things in check.

Dave - Nice schedule. I have to laugh because whenever I create new hybrids now, I usually set them out for 13 weeks or so but almost always seem to make little tweaks to them here and there as my goals/ideas slightly change throughout.

Mike - Nice job on the double workout...even if one was Tony and the Kids! emoticon Its really nice that your kids are into fitness at an early age...a trait not enough children have any more!

Everyone have a good Monday!

Hey guys, I did the 10-30-20 workout this morning. I used the medicine balls for all the push-ups to up the ante so to say. Tuesday morning i plan on completing the super cardio workout. Again this is a great idea and really holds me accountable for completing the workouts.

At what point did you decide that you were ready to use a weighted vest. I feel like I work really hard and usually have a good heart rate. Do you use the vest while jumping rope and cardio also?

And thanks for the kudos for the kids exercise...Mike

Good Morning!

This morning was a bit tough getting out of bed. I couldn't fall asleep last night so I got to bed a little late, so this morning came very quickly. I was able to drag my ass out of bed though in get in the home gym to do Road Warrior from Tony's 1on1s. Great total body routine, really enjoy that one, although the speed round is killer!

Mike - I decided to use the weighted vest when I was running out of time on pushups. Say, for example a Chest and Back routine, I would crank out 30+ pushups but at a slower pace than what Tony does and it was becoming too much of a nuisance to pause the dvd every time. Also, I wanted to build more size in my chest/back so I decided to up the weight, lower the rep count, focus on form more, and really get a good burn. I generally only use the weighted vest for resistance routines like pushups, pullups, chair dips, leg moves (non-plyometric) so that I can ensure my form is ok. I would not recommend a weighted vest for just any cardio routine as there is generally a lot of lateral and unstable movements in those types of routines that your body is not built to support a sudden increase in weight from side to side so you are increasing your chance of injury. Having said all of that, I have used my vest many times now and am becoming increasingly more comfortable with it so I will be giving Plyometrics a shot with it in the near future. The only thing is that I will add weight in increments, first week 10lbs, then if things are ok, increase it up to 15 or 20lbs the next week.

I am out for now, everyone enjoy their Tuesday!
