P90X

So I didn't want to blog about this until I knew I was committed and showing results. And since it's a "yes" for both, I'm going to tell you about it.

Has anyone seen those infomercials for "P90X" on TV? It's a workout program that guarantees awesome results in 90 days! Here's a LINK to the website. Basically they have a ~60 minute workout routine each day of the week on 12 different DVDs. There's a schedule that you follow that tells you which DVD to use on each day. Each DVD targets a different part of the body. There's "Chest & Arms," "Shoulders & Arms," "Legs & Back," "Yoga," "Abs," and etc. And let me tell you, each one really works you out! I'm really loving it. It's a love-hate thing actually. I hate it cuz it's hard, challenging. But I love it because it really works out my body. And OMG, the Yoga is AMAZING. I've never sweat so much in my life! Seriously works out every part of my body. I've done Yoga before, but never like this.

I'm on Week 3 of the program now. And I'm already seeing results in my arms, chest, shoulders, and back. I took some "before" pictures (and no, I'm not going to post them here because I think I look horrible in them) and I'm supposed to take pictures at the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day mark. MAYBE I'll post the 30-day pics... maybe I'll wait until the 60-day. Anyway... I love the program. I just have to keep putting the DVDs in and keep pressing play. 1 hour each day is not a hard committment. (I do cheat and skip the cardio days because I do enough cardio at work) I'll be finishing up my 90 days in the middle of summer... when it's time for the BEACH. So I'm sort of excited to go to the beach this summer and show off my body. It's my motivation to keep going on this program. To have an awesome Beach Body to show off. :P

So wish me luck on this. And hopefully I won't get an injury that will prevent me from continuing with this program. Cuz I was doing so well with my "100 push-ups program" until I got that stupid shoulder injury. NO to injuries. YES to big muscles! hehehe.

LOL! That's great, I have it too!.. but uh I kinda lapsed at month 2, and haven't been doing it since then.

You're probably a lot more dedicated than I am, though, so hey let's hope the results turn out great!

Oh and yea, the Yoga is GREAT, and the other workouts kick butt too. :)

lol that's such a Tony Horton thing to say :P But um, I stopped because I was stressed out about school right about that time... and I didn't finish 2 months, I finished one month and a bit :P

But I DID lose some weight in that first month though, so if I'd stayed I'm pretty sure I would've seen some results :) I think I'm starting again this summer, just in time for when I start school in San Diego (and hot guys ;D).

are you seeing more tone or more muscle build? I have a good core strength program but it doesn't seem to be doing squat for muscle tone

Ugh, I REALLY need to start working out again. Pretty much stopped for 2 months to focus on the end of the term. And I was doing decent before too, sigh.

Good luck on this program! You should definitely show pics of yourself at 30-days, 60-days, and 90-days. :) It will be interesting to see just how well the program works.

I figured you to be in shape with all that dancing. Good luck on the program.
I've been walking and doing crunches morning, evening and bedtime. My abs are tighter and I took off 2 inches in the waist. Only lost a couple of pounds.

I have a bulging disk in the neck and it sreams pain 24 hours after I do 10 pushups. My upper body strength is 0.

BTW you look pretty hot in that navy blue wife beater and white shorts.
