2012 P90X2 – Day 1 and Day 90
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? Also whats your total poundage dropped this far? Im plannin on startin the p90x experience soon here as well… id say im in the boat you were in when you started. You still doing the program? Looking forward to seeing your current progress.
Which course do you recommend I follow? Lean or muscle building? I am inspired by you! You really are an inspiration, keep it up you are looking really good and I am sure you must feel good as well! Is there a guide to tell you which dvd to do each day, or do you roll though the 12 dvds every twelve days!! Purchased it today and am extremely excited to lose more weight, At and have already lost 70 lbs. Great to see a real person, not one of the company sponsored college kids, posting some real photos.
Keep up the great work! So, 2 questions, 1: You have to quick drinking alcohol right? What max weight dumbells do you recommend. You have shoulder definition coming out. Thanks for taking the time to post your pics. This workout will get you into a routine but it really does take over your life. In a good way I feel a lot stronger and feel much healthier.
Any body who is thinking of doing this program, you have got to commit! You are such an inspiration to me and my finance! We just started the program together day 3! Hey FLB i just saw the infomercial about 1 in the morning and decided to see if I could find postings for scams on this.
Your results are impressive and I am now ready to try. Add about 20lbs to your week 1 pics and that would be me. Depends on what works better for your situation. Both are great options, but I prefer to workout at home. The great thing about this is you have a structured workout routine and meal plan that has proven results.
Many people go to the gym and have no idea what they are doing. The top two pics were from only using P90x2 and a little running. I followed a modified version of the diet. Ratios were close but I changed the calorie requirements based on my needs. The bottom pic is with only P90X and a half hearted attempt at the diet. The rotations are supposed to be done out in front to isolate lower abs. I'm not sure if the modifications might lead to injuries- I'm not a fitness expert. I just do a lot of p90x abripper2.
Thank you for posting these though. It's really helpful to have all the exercises in one place!!! Thanks so much for posting this!
This is a great, comprehensive description of the workout. Pretty good little ab routine. I may use some of those exercises in my current workout routine. P90X is great, all except for the price and the irritation of them constantly trying to promote their own profits. Although, we all need to make money, so I can't blame them.
How long have you been working with p90x? P90X is a great workout. It took me 3 weeks to be able to get through the ab ripper X video without stopping. Everyone is going crazy about P90X these days. It's really taken off. And especially the Ab Ripper - which is understandable. Although I still believe the best approach remains the old fashioned 5x5 routine. I can finally do ll of the 11 variations completely through. I workout with p90x and the bowflex revolution I bought a few months ago.
Good luck in your recovery! Your body need a break after this, and doing it everyday will mean you're damaging muscle tissue. I love performing the hip rock and raise exercise. It tones up my hips and it helps relax my back muscles. I was sore for 5 days after the first time, I did my second round last night, and no pain Oh did I mention.
My abs are looking much better! I've only just started this workout today and I've only got a bit of fat on my stomach and hips so hopefully I should see a change pretty soon judging by the comments, thanks for the easy to understand and effective exercises. I have done these workouts and they are fairly simple and they work. I did these workouts for two weeks and could already see a huge positive change in definition of my abdominals.
