The Official HighExistence P90X Challenge Group
THIS IS INTENSE LOL
yea that was a pretty intense first workout. got through it though. on to day 2. plyometrics here we come.
pretty interesting though. I’m kinda hungry post-workout but the only craving I have is fruits n veggies. Meat, fish, dairy all seem really gross to me right now
My results from day 1:
Unfortunately I got very sick feeling on Saturday and am still feeling it today. Shortness of breath, fatigue, and extreme soreness had led me to decide to wait a day or two to start. :(
I’m feeling better today although this cold is killing my back (I have back problems already.)
I have the p90x in possession, however, and am ready to kick some ass as soon as I’m not under the weather anymore!
Nice guys! Everyone else, where you at?
@emily, Yep, both workouts! I like ab ripper though, because it doesn’t take very long before you see results in the the amount of reps you can do, and the size of your abs. I started off doing about 15 of those scissor kicks, but now I knock out all 25 each time.
@mikedvs15, Your second week workouts will be MUCH better now that you know how to pace yourself, what weight to use on each exercise, etc… As long as your sore though you probably got a good workout in.
Wow! Hell of a workout tonight…I kinda wanna bang the dude with the prosthetic leg! Inspire much?
I won’t be able to do tonights excercise, shoulders/arms/ab ripper. I have school for 12 hours today, until 9 pm. MAYBE I’ll have the energy tonight, but I doubt it.
P.S. I don’t feel a burn often with this workout – my body simply stops being able to do anything, zero energy left. I’m kinda sore, but I expected it to be more sore, think its just cause I don’t have enough calories? Too skinny? (I’m a stick)
Hey I’m gonna join in with you guys if thats alright, I would have earlier but I didn’t have the free time or the P90X dvds until just now. I did the first day today and it was pretty rough but satisfying! I will be keeping track by taking pictures and measurements.
Oh my bad guys, I didn’t see a lot of you’re posts last time I was on.
@ijesuschrist, No problem. The scheduled off day is Sunday, but there’s nothing wrong with moving it around. How many reps are you using doing? What exercise?
Shoulders, Bi’s, Tri’s tonight!
My advice, don’t worry if you have to stop the video more than usual to pick the right weight for most exercises. You’ll end up getting a better work out. 5 pounds can be a big difference on certain exercises – especially triceps!
@alexmayle, I’ve just been doing what they do on the video… i haven’t used any weights yet, only done plyometrics, abs, and uh chest or something, can’t remember.
@ijesuschrist, Gotcha. Well, I can understand in some situations you wouldn’t feel a burn. For example, when I’m doing pull ups I can only do about 5, and while I can’t do the 6th one I don’t really feel any burn. However on exercises where you can do a good amount like push ups, squats, and most of the plyo stuff, you should be feeling the burn.
Really watch out for you’re form. I know how tough Plyo is, but it’s better to do less with perfect form than just crank out a bunch until failure. When you get to Shoulders, Bi, Tri make sure you pick appropriate weights that allow you to use good form. By the way, I took my off day today as well. I smoked weed earlier and I just couldn’t build up the motivation. lol Looks like you and I will be workin out on Sunday while most are resting. lol
@alexmayle, yeah man i biked home today which is one giant hill. did not plan that well. my legs are BARKIN’
@ijesuschrist, Nice! Depending on where you live you won’t be able to do it for long so better get it in now!
Legs And Back about to burn.
Plyo is by far the most intense workout…..
So guys, now that you’re wrapping up the first week, how y’all feelin!?
@alexmayle, i strained something in my groin doing the ab ripper lol. I took a day or two off, just finished chest and arms today, but couldn’t follow up on ab-ripper, it makes me feel nauseous… but I shall press onward!
Feels good though, for sure.
@ijesuschrist, Hey dude I’ve done P90X in the past (never finished it), and the first two weeks always made me feel like barfing and I would even lay on the floor because I would feel real bad during the video and wake up somewhere in the middle of ab ripper… hah.
anyone doing this using any pre/post workout sups/ proteins?
@mikedvs15, I’m using the P90X powder that I buy from online. Its really the best thing I’ve ever used for post workout and tastes really good. But I’m not sure if it is optimal to drink supplements, it works great for me for now!
But this thread should be more help to you
@mikedvs15, I agree with @deej, I take the P90X Results and Recovery formula after every workout. At first I thought it would just be hype, or another way for BeachBody to make money, but it’s actually a really effective and valuable product. I’m not nearly as sore the next day, and I feel invigorated after workouts.
So how did everyone fair over Thanksgiving!?
@alexmayle, felt much better about eating all that food :D
anyone still going strong?
@mikedvs15, yup! Hoping everyone is too
