1st Day P90X

Updated on April 6, 2012

1st day and counting

Hi folks, I have told you that I have lost 195 pounds in a period of two and 1/2 years. I have joined a gym and I could feel some difference in my pants and shirts and even my boobs are placed differently!!! Here is the deal though. I've been stuck. Really, I go to the gym and have will warm up on the tread mill and then go to the mat and do some of the exercises that I know for my abs like perpendicular raises with holding a ball between my feet and lifting it straight up. I do that for 20 reps and then 3 sets . then I move onto crunch machine, and then I'll do lunges and then squats with a ball behind my back up against the wall lifting dumbells while I squat down. I do each exercise about 20 times and do 4 sets. I hate doing cardio straight so what I've been doing is 2 of the exercises and then I will go to the bike and do intermittent intense cardio for about 15 minutes and switch to another exercise and so on. Today starts a series of exercises given to me from a good friend of mine, maryann. I wasnt going to do the first day today but I decided to and not make exuses. The first day was the Ab ripper and now I know why they call it that.. OH MY GOD!!! I almost threw up!!! Have to slow it down some and just stick with it and will see results. Maryann printed out all the paperwork for me and everything..

One of the things that is said of this program is "Exercise is the architec. Recovery is the builder." and that "all well organized training programs work in blocks in order to force your body to continually adapt to new exercise movements and cadences, or resistance. Increasing the speed, duration, or weight added to a given exercise is an obvious extension, and an important part of the process. But new Movements are probably the most vital components of each block, as they are most shocking to the body."(Steve Edwards)

I never thought about changing and variety as in the way Mr. Edwards puts it, but I can feel what he means already. My stomach muscles, although I had to modify alot and rest often definately feels different and like marshmellows. I don't think they ever felt like this after I worked them out, so I feel the first workout really affected them.. Awsome!! This is only the first day, I am tired only after the 15 minutes ab workout. Tomorrow is plyometrics which I have never done. but I also know that I have to do modified version. but I will get stronger and will do better.

I cant wait to see what I look like if I really stick to this and the diet, wish me luck. I am going to blog my progress.

      Best of luck with P90X. Their workouts are are great, I just don't like the price of their products. It sounds to me like you sudden stop of improvements is probably from a lack of variety in your routine. P90X will solve that for sure, haha. Best of luck and may you continue with your success!
