  • Very cool Moves app visualization

    If you use the neat Moves app (it tracks walks, runs, bicycle rides, transportation, all automatically) this is a very cool visualization tool to see your history: Move-o-Scope Here’s my accumulated data so far: Link to share this: https://www.gabrielserafini.com/blog/2014/05/14/very-cool-moves-app-visualization/

  • Resuming P90X after 2 week hiatus – Back in the hunt!

    After taking about 2 weeks off of my P90X routine I decided to resume it today.  According to the calendar schedule I have, I’m now in week 4 (recovery time) and today’s routine was Core Synergistics.  It was pretty fun, and not a terrible one to get back into it with.  I figured rather than […]

  • P90X Day 11 report – Arms & Shoulders + bonus Ab Ripper X = makeup day

    Still working on getting “caught up”.  Today’s official workout was supposed to be Yoga X, but I did Arms & Shoulders + Ab Ripper X instead (yesterday’s workout).  Might get caught up tomorrow? Only did about 1/2 the reps for Ab Ripper X, resting in between. All in all feels good to be doing my […]

  • P90X Day 10 – Plyometrics

    Did Plyometrics (“jump training”) all the way through today, taking lots of breaks.  It is very intense. May still do Shoulders and Arms later tonight to get fully caught up. Link to share this: https://www.gabrielserafini.com/blog/2012/04/10/p90x-day-10-plyometrics/

  • P90X Day 8, 9 – Ab Ripper X

    Ended up doing Chest & Back Monday night (instead of Sunday).  I may try to do the Plyometrics workout (was supposed to be today’s video) tomorrow morning-ish to catch back up.  Tomorrow is also Shoulders & Arms. Felt good to get back to it.  Picture is of me taking a short break while doing Ab […]

  • P90X Day 7 – One week in

    Went sailing today with Craig, Anna Lisa, Julian, Andrea, Julian’s sister, and Amanda.  Was an absolutely gorgeous day out on the Bay.  We took a Catalina 32 out and enjoyed sunshine, consistent breeze and almost flat water conditions. Went for Cheese Board pizza afterwards — delicious as always.  Again with the whole “eat what I […]

  • P90X Day 5, 6 – Skip day and going half speed (aka “Dogging it”)

    Yesterday (day 5) ended up being a bye day for me for P90X. I had quite a lot of work that I had to finish (a client’s e-commerce shopping cart system wasn’t liking some of the logic that I had implemented, and I needed to fix it before I really did anything else). In bed […]

  • P90X Day 4 – Yoga X

    Did about 40 minutes (out of 1.5hrs) of the yoga video last night, then it was midnight, and I had had enough. The P90X Yoga video definitely focuses on yoga as an athletic exercise (vs. a focus on yoga as a quiet and contemplative practice). It was a nice break and the stretching felt good, […]

  • P90x day 2&3

    Day 2: Plyometrics Ate large quantity of sushi omakase style at Kirala in Berkeley. Did not do Plyometrics tonight. Slept instead. Day 3 Did first 1/2 half of Plyometrics video then had lunch with sister and my awesome nieces in the park. Was pretty wiped out and ready for the break. Went to A’s vs […]

  • P90X Day 1 – Chest & Back – A good start

    I decided that it was time to give the P90X videos a shot, after my brother Andy has done it like 4 times now, with some excellent results.  Did the first video this evening (Chest & Back), with the bonus Ab Ripper X.  Overall I enjoyed it, and afterwards felt the same kind of wiped-out […]
