I did it! I successfully completed P90X . . . and I'm never doing it again!
I started out tremendously weak and came out the other side being able to complete 7 full pushups. It may not sound like much to some, but I've barely been able to do push ups on my knees for most of my life. I feel accomplished and the program was great! I lost three pounds on the scale and lost a tonne of inches all over my body, but it was tough and I probably strained myself more than I should have.
One hour per day, 6 days per week was a little much and I found most days I didn't want to do the excercises, but I pushed through. Tony Horton kind of grew on me, too.
I shouldn't say I'll never do it again. Many of the exercises were great and I developed muscles I didn't think I was capable of. I will definitely keep using the resistance bands and I will continue to incorporate the variety of push-ups/pull-ups, squats and lunges.
All in all it's a great program and I would definitely recommend it anyone wanting amazing results in a short period of time (although plyometrics always feels like an eternity).
Yesterday was Day 1 of my "Primal" workout and I'm already loving it. I took my Vibrams out for a very early morning sprint (5:30 am). The air was cool and there was a light refreshing mist and a symphony of tweets and chirps. I don't remember the last time I was up and out this early but I really enjoyed the calm and quiet of the city. I warmed up with a quick jog, then repeated sprinting intervals for 10 to 15 minutes. I loved it and I can't say enough wonderful things about my Vibrams! I ended my session with a leisurely walk around my neighbourhood.
Now, I'm off to go Lift Heavy Things ... Awesome!
