    Sharon99 and (everyone else), I did P90x and it was so slow I just couldnt do it.  Another option is to do a Power Yoga DVD and do that instead of the one supplied by P90x.  I LOVE yoga...but that DVD was just HORRIBLE! Maybe even a Pilates DVD!

        I got one of ebay, it came with 3 different DVDs, it started from beginner and went to advanced...it seems easy...but yoga will have you sweating and out of breath! LOL! Especially power yoga!

          Officially started my 2nd round of P90X Lean today!!  Core Synergistics down, Cardio tomorrow!  My first day back went really well!!  I had to sort of take it easy my last week of my first round because of upper back pain, so this time around I am trying to take it a little easy.

                  Just checkin in to see how everyone is doing! I'm on my recovery week. TOO much yoga! Had dinner with a girlfriend last night who has done the program a couple of times. She's also a yoga fanatic and has convinced me to stop subbing out yoga, so I'm really going to try to stick it out this week.

                   

                  I'm going to pick up some more free weights this week before I start phase 2. Just curious - what are you guys using? I only have 5Lbs right now and I need to up it. I was thinking 8s and 10s?

                    Hey Manda!!  Ugh...well I had to stop my program last time at the beginning of week 13 because my back pain got so bad, and just 2 days in this time I was hurting SO bad that I just stopped :o  I actually just bought Jillian Michael's 30 day shred for cheap on half.com so that I could try her workouts out and see if they work better for my back.  I have had so many treatments on my back in the past 5 years that I just don't want to hurt anymore :oP.  I'm not sure where I'm going to go from here..

                     

                    BUT..to give you some advice on the weights, we started out with bands/5lb weights, went to 8lbs and ended up with 10lbs.  I would definitely suggest having 8's and 10's around!  It is fine to do less reps with a higher weight and continue to grow with it!

                      jszy10 - sorry to hear about your back :( hopefully you the shred is better for you.

                       

                      manda123 - I am on my recovery week also! (month 2) You go girl! lol! Giving yoga a shot!! Let me know if you start to like it.

                      I use 5s, 8s, 10s and even 15s for some of the back moves where you use free weights. In month 2 you will have Back & Bis and I find that I switch from 5s & 8s for my bis in that workout. Give it a try and if its too heavy just switch back but I would definitely try to challenge yourself & increase the weight!
