Tells me it will take business days for money to be returned. Tessa July 19th, My sis gave me some when I ran out of my regular brand. I was so excited to start Shakeology. What tastes good to one person can taste aweful to another. So, what kind of P90X and Asylum hybrid workout are we doing? There are numerous healthy recipes available. I use it as an after workout supplement because I have achieved my goal weight with Shakeology and P90X.
Your results are awesome. My body type is similar to yours slightly heavier starting out. Like you I skipped X Stretch the first few weeks. I was just too sore. Your results to date have been outstanding. I recently went thru a weight loss routine myself and have noticed the lbs returning ever so slowly. Finding your blog has been a wake up call!!! One i really needed. Great to see that someone out here is taking the time to do something like this.
Thanks and Ill keep up with your progress as i begin my own P90X routine to the mat! Again Thank you and keep up the great work!
Conrats on the results, what a change in 50 days! I just ordered my dvds today. I spent a few days research and reading all of the blogs.
I started getting in shape on my own back in december and Ive managed to lose lbs as of today but I have reached a wall and I just cant break it on my own. I want to lose maybe another 10 oo so pounds and gain more muscle and more core strength.
After seeing your photos. I wish I took a before photo back in december. But I will take one before I start this program. Good luck with your program! Nice job…keep it going. I work out regularly with an old Bowflex and some weight, but have plateaued in getting any noticeable results. I do have questions regarding the diet portion of the program: I have a few questions. How much space do I need? Will my living room work? I have everything, but the pull up bar. If I stay a few nights every other week at another location can I still do this work out?
Will I be alright? Do you have to use the nutrition plan to get the results? I make a conscious effort to be totally relaxed as I want to see the real results…. Actually, you eat quite a bit with the P90X nutrition plan. There is a portions plan which is what I follow , and it takes no time to prepare food at all…. Congrats on your achievements! I ordered the stuff last night and opted for the express shipping.
The one story that really inspired me was watching the testimonial with a former Army Ranger. I also was a Army Ranger and got out about 5 years ago.
My wife and I both want to make the change. I want to be more active with my kids and get into competitive sports again. Man, I have really gotten lazy….. Rusty — yeah FatLossBlogger is totally correct. My entire 31 days have been in my living room, however I strongly recommend a fan — that helps A LOT. That is one of the things that really attracted me to this program.
No stinking tread mills, huge machines or anything else like that. Most of the exercises are against your own body weight when it comes to the leg work outs.
And the rest is with dumbells and bands which work the other parts of the body. Stay focused-you look great! I really appreciate everyone commenting because it gives me support-fight on! Also you have to eliminate your consumption of alcohol pretty much completely, in my opinion. If I would completely clean up all that, I would imagine I would have lost around lbs based on my exertion level and what I have done in the past. The videos that first week will kick your butt, and that is no joke.
I am in pretty good shape and was previously hitting the gym for about 1 hour per day, 5 days a week minimum, and lift weights hard 2 days, and cardio for the other 3 days. After the second week, the workouts become easier, to the point that I decided to start adding in an additional miles of cardio about times a week after my workout.
If one were to make it through workout 15, I would imagine they have no reason other than injury to not be able to finish the program with flying colors. On Day 1, I could not finish all the pushups, but as of yesterday, I meet and exceeded my previous pushups by at least 4 pushups in all the workouts, other than the second set of Diamond pushups which cumulatively knock me out. My chest size for suits has decreased from a 50 to a My waist size has decreased from a 41 to a My arms are about the same, but my triceps, which are traditionally weaker for me, are much more defined.
Post Workout -L-glutamine with mg Protein -typically 1. This is really inspiring for me. I have a quick question for you, I am just starting the p90x in a couple weeks time, I have all of the equipment, nutrition plan and the program. I am now researching and pondering on which supplements I really need to take. Two I know for sure is the recovery formula and the whey protein shakes.
Still undecided on protein bars. But here is my question; it says to drink the recovery formula 1 hour post workout right. But in the nutrition plan it says to drink the recovery drink and a protein at the mid morning snack everyday.
I will be definitely working out in the evening, so does this mean I need to drink the recovery formula twice daily? I would appreciate a response on your knowledge of the program. I am so pumped to get rollin on this thing, it looks like it works awesome.
FLB, Congrats on everything you have accomplished so far! It is so cool to see the week by week changes. The first week was crazy -totally kicked our butt! But now that we are in the third week it seems a little easier than at first.
I can already tell a difference — my endurance is building and my clothes fit better. I hope that we have as much success with our workout as you have. Good Luck and way to go! Please keep posting the pics, they are a great motivation! I would just like to say thank you for this review, Its really making this decision easier for me. My son is starting this program and has a belly to lose. I am going to show these pictures, because he desperately wants to lose his belly and I think the pictures might be very encouraging to him.
Thanks for posting them…. I am considering starting the program and had a question. As far as the recovery formula goes would any lean protein do? Im pounds and hurting and thats going half speed! Any advice and what i can eat thats cheap and still works? The first few weeks are the hardest as your body has a lot of adjusting to do, hang in there…. I would probably just go through the P90X nutrition guide and find the foods that are least expensive, then focus on building full meals out of those using the portions approach.
Get a chicken breast or turkey sub on whole wheat, pile on the veggies, leave out the mayo and dressing. Thanks for the inspiration. In my experience, the biggest results came in Phase III. At Day 60, I still felt and looked like a cow. Keep up the good work! I already lost 46 pounds a few months prior following a strict calorie diet plan but now Im eating about calories per day in accordance to p90x.
I just wanna know, what was your calorie consumption if you counted , how many carbohydrates, and how much protein were you getting and was it before and or after the workouts. Truth be told, I just ordered my P90X today.
A couple years back, I used to be in pretty good shape. However, somewhere along the way life happened. I look at your day 1 pictures and I see pretty close to an exact copy of me now. So I can finally see it really does work. I always felt it was for thinner or already fit people in shape and was scared to try it but, seeing your results in just 49 days are amazing.
Great work and I will now be doing the program. Are you doing doubles or just classic? I am approaching week 4 Recovery week and am considering going the doubles route starting week 5. I want to get that shredded look and was also curious what the average weight you are using dumbells?
How many pullups were you able to do on your first day? So, what kind of P90X and Asylum hybrid workout are we doing? For example, if we are working back and biceps for the day, we will do a back exercise followed by a bicep exercise, and then immediately follow that with 2 minutes and 30 seconds of Insanity Asylum drills.
We each do a 1: One of the Asylum drills involves doing different jump rope moves, and the other involves the use of the agility ladder. We will go through 8 or 9 different sets of that, coming to a total of about different resistance moves and 20 to This is a great way to burn a ton of calories, but yet build some muscle at the same time.
There are a few important things to remember, though. What you even might want to consider doing is sipping on the Recovery Formula during the workout as well, especially if you start to feel completely drained. Be creative and come up with your own if you have to, maybe even adding in some Insanity moves as well, but just make sure you keep mixing things up to keep up with the muscle confusion!
