The official P90X Support Group!

I got P90X awhile ago and did it after my daughter was born. I really liked it but i didn't end up ever finishing it or doing it everyday like your supposed to. I think I started it too soon it was tough to work that into my schedule everyday with a newborn and work. But...I want to start it again and actually do it every day and follow the diet plan. I'm getting sick of my gym my FI and I go to snap fitness and every time I go lately it is just PACKED to the point where there aren't even treadmills or lifting machines open. I don't like having to take breaks and wait for people when i'm doing circuit lifting , kinda defeats the purpose.

 

I'm with you Jessica and Angel...I'm 5' 6" and I weigh 120 which i'm totally fine with I know i'm skinny and everything but I have a little chub around my tummy and it just has to go, and I'd like to get more toned in general! So I might have to cancel that gym membership and try a round of P90X. It sounds like the lean program is the way to go. My wedding isn't for 11 months but i'm doing a BD photoshoot this summer for my FI and bikini season is approaching so I want to get in shape now too and then maybe I'd do the doubles program 3 months before the wedding...Doubles yuck that sounds hard! haha

 

What pound weights are you ladies planning on using for most of the exercises? I think I did 8 lb weights when I did it last time but it might have been 10

Ahhh!! The BD shoot!!  I forgot about scheduling mine!  I have been so busy with everything else it slipped my mind.  I have THAT to motivate me too!!

I still need to pick up my bands!  I was told I might find them at Target??  I'm going to look at what my weights are that I have at home, they might only be 3, so I may have to pick up a set of weights too before I start.

 

There are not enough hours in the day!!

Yeah I believe i started with 8 lbs and moved up to 10 after a little bit but I might get some 5 lb weights because i remember it being extrememly difficult, especially at first, with the 8 lbs. I have pretty strong arms, being a mom will do that to you ha, but I don't want them to get any more bulky or big, muscular and manly so i should probably use lighter weight. I'll have to check out Dicks for some more weights. We have resistance bands too and I got them at Scheels but I'd bet you they do have them at target too and probably for cheaper.

 

The BD photos are a huge motivator for me too. I know my photographer can photoshop it and make small flaws disappear but I want them to look perfect and not look photoshopped and fake!

Hey Ladies!  You guys have motivated me to start P90X again!  My Fi & I did it last year, but quit after 6 weeks(life gets in the way :))  The first time I did it I wasn't following any kind of diet plan, so I didn't see a great deal of results.  I started weight watchers about 8 weeks ago & have lost 10 lbs, so now that I have the diet part under control I need to start getting toned.  I HATE yoga, so I will probably just run on those days.  I used 5, 8, & 10 lb weights last time I did it.  I'm really excited to get started again!!

Yay!!  Start with us, we'll try to keep you going!  I'm starting this weekend at some point!  I've had a crazy week and am leaving town Saturday to Sunday, but I'm going to pick up my bands in the next day or two and get started either Sunday or Monday!

I know!!  We leave May 31st, so it will be perfect timing.  It will give me a week before to not have to worry about working out!!  I think I will start it on Sunday...start the week off right!
