I was in the middle of the LEAN 90 days of my second round of P90X when my hubby kind of dropped off the workout routine. I still worked out everyday but not always the “X” and it bummed me out a bit. Since he was not doing it with me, it was hard to do it at night like we were because we would get to doing other things.
My friend has committed though and I am excited. This is how we are going to do it!
This is the friend I have been walking with at 6am and now I am going to walk to her house by 6am and we are gong to get out “X” on! She even gave me a key so she is in trouble now cuz I WILL wake her butt up if she is not awake.
Just a side note to this post, because it makes me think about it.
I think a lot of people have the wrong idea in mind when they think of P90X. It looks like it is ALL weights and geared towards men. This is not the case. P90X has to do with muscle confusion and yes there are weights but there is also cardio like Kenpo, Core work, and Plyometrics. It is definitely a workout for both genders.
Another myth is that a lot of women think if they workout with weights they will bulk up like a man. Less weight more reps ladies and this will fine tune and tone the body. It is actually proven in research studies that you lose weight faster when you add weight resistance. The more muscle your body holds then the more calories you burn at rest. We all want that.
This works for all types of weight resistant exercise, not just P90X. I just love the P90X as it does make you feel strong, and fast. The workouts are a bit longer then average (45-60 minutes except yoga as its 90min.). But if you don’t have time to do the entire workout, doing half of them are even going to give you results.
Anyway, I can’t wait to get on this 90 day excursion with my friend. I am very eager to see how excited she is going to get with her results (after the firs 3 weeks of sore of course).
I will keep you updated and if I can talk her into it I will post before and after pics of the both of us, but no promises, I have not asked her yet!
