Series:  "M90F: Matt's 90-day Fitness"

Day: 3

Activities:  UPPER BODY... Pull-ups, Push-ups, Ab Scissors, Shoulders, Forearms, Walking.

If you're doing weight bearing exercise to build some muscle, every other day is generally the plan for various muscle groups; A-day, B-day.  I do upper body, then lower body, then upper again.

When you're just starting out, the second rotation can be challenge.  I'm extremely sore today from my upper body 2 days ago.  Even if you're sore/stiff you should do it anyway!  In fact, it's said to help recover faster, and not be as sore/stiff.  So no excuses today!

After doing my core exercises, I get into the specific stuff I want to focus on...

Shoulders:  save a used laundry detergent container, or buy a $3/3gallon gas container and fill it with as much water as you need, and you have yourself an entire weight set.

Shoulder raises, side and front:

Tie it to a cat-scratching post for a wrist-role for forearms:

Love handles:  hold this pose (isometric) for 30 seconds, a couple sets: 

Change out the ab wheel (my abs are too blasted today still) for some higher-rep ab scissors:

A big thanks to my friend Andrew who commented about an at-home pull-up bar he found:  I'm interested to see how you like it...

Now for some news!  Jared, an friend of mine, has challenged me to a fitness duel: he also hasn't been working out since October, and he's just now starting P90X.  Perfect chance to really put this blog to the test!  So all I have to say is: it's on like Donkey Kong.  Stay tuned - I believe he'll be providing some 'before' pics, and at the end we'll post both of our 'after' pics, and you all must be the judges!

Testing out a survey site - try it out!
Why do you exercise?
