P90X, second time's a charm

Thursday, May 27, 2010

After completing all of round 1 except for the last week when I had some health issues, I felt great. My weight, however, did not go down much as I didn't follow the nutrition program. Despite that, I see many benefits of completing P90X. First of all, I have a great sense of accomplishment. I'm definitely stronger. I feel like my workouts have become well rounded. As a spinning instructor, I focused more on cardio and then weight training and really nothing else. I tried things I thought I could never do like plyometrics. I had knee surgery and always thought I could not do that. But, as Tony gives such excellent instructions like "land like a cat" "think spiderman" I can do the plyo and feel great. And Yoga X, well that was something else. My wrists got very sore and as I've had surgery on both wrists I was concerned. I consulted a BB team advisor and I now substitute another Power yoga DVD and it is working great. Kenpo X I love.

I am now ready to work on the nutrition this time around and "bring it" in all the workouts.

    Good Luck on your the 2nd round.
    I am still in 2nd phase week 2 because of a week long vacation, which threw me back.
    So I started phase 2 again. There are still things I can not do.
    I try and do everything, but I listen to Tony when he says
    be smart, do your best. nutritionally not doing as I well as I like but moving forward. Progress not perfection.
