Hello and welcome back to Bold Body Fitness. If it is your first time here I would recommend you go here to find out what the P90x workout system is all about.
Before we get right into today’s workout report I wanted to address something. I have not been able to post the power 90 page yet for those of you looking for it. There is no need to worry however because I will be posting it in a couple of days. Anyone interested in the Power 90 system by Beachbody should plan to check the page out. I will post a working link in an up coming exercise report.
As for my workout I got to try out my new dumbbells. That’s right I got my new, and heavier, dumbbell set yesterday. They worked out just fine. I don’t really think you can go wrong when picking out a set of dumbbells anyway. I used them for my arm workouts today. I am still in need of a Yoga mat, but that will have to wait for now.
During my workout today I was a bit sluggish. I definitely didn’t get enough sleep. I was able to get through the whole DVD, but it was a real struggle.
I worked out with the Yoga DVD today for those wondering. I used to be a lot better at keeping up during the Yoga DVD back when I used P90x regularly. I am sure I will get there again eventually.
In other news I have updated the where to buy P90x section of the site. If you are still not sure where to buy P90x and get the best price I encourage you to check it out. There are also some preview videos of the P90x workout on the page.
I will of course be back tomorrow to continue my daily workout with the day 14 workout report. Remember that if you haven’t already you can subscribe to the Bold Body Fitness RSS feed so that you won’t miss any of my updates. Just click the above link and it should take you directly there.
I got up early today so that I could get my workout done. I have to be at work at around 9am so I was afraid I would miss my workout if I didn’t get up around 7am. Thankfully I was able to finish my workout and I kept up decently enough with Tony and the gang. I wasn’t that tired waking up at 7am today surprisingly enough.
Anyway for those of you wonder what workout I completed today it was the chest and back DVD. I am thinking I need a higher weight for my dumbbells already. I will probably just get them at either Walmart or the local gym equipment store. I still need an exercise mat as well so I will probably just get them both at the same time. I am not sure how big a mat I need. I may do some measurements to figure out what the right dimensions should be.
One other note I still need to order some more Shakeology. I also wanted to ask you all what your favorite flavor of Shakeology is?
Look forward to hearing from you all soon. I will be back tomorrow for my Day 13 workout update.
Hello everyone. Welcome back to my workout journey again. I was able to get an all around better workout then yesterday. I did mention yesterday that I did half of my workout during the morning hours and the rest at night. I fortunately got through my whole workout today without any trouble. I think I actually had one of my best workouts which means a lot to me. I hope to continue this pace for a while at least. Once I get into a routine I should be able to stick to it for the most part. That is if work allows me to.
For those that are wondering what workout I did today I worked on shoulders and back. Shoulders and back is one of my favorite workouts of the P90x series. I would love to hear what your favorite DVD’s are as well.
For those wondering where the Power 90 section of the site is I apologize that I didn’t get it posted until today. You can click here to go there and check out the article I wrote about this amazing system. I would encourage anyone just getting into fitness and strength training to check out the Power 90 series.
Well I reached day 10 and I only have 80 days to go. Don’t you hate it when life gets in the way of your workouts. Unfortunately I was only able to get half of my workout done in the morning and had to drag through the rest of it once I got home from work. I know this is not the way P90x was intended to be done, but I am glad I was at least able to complete my day 10 workout.
I definitely feel that I am getting stronger. I am able to do some pullups again. I haven’t been able to do these in quite a while. The pullups usually give me the most trouble so once I get these down I should get closer to catching up with the other P90xers.
In other news I did a whole post on Power 90 if any of you are interested. If you do not already know the Power 90 System was the program that Tony Horton made prior to developing the P90x Extreme Home Fitness System. Power 90 is quite effective in it’s own right. If you are just a beginner you may want to start out with Power 90 before moving on to P90x.
Two days into my 2nd week on the P90x system and I am already starting to see some results. This program certainly works quickly. That is one of the problems I had with fitness programs I tried prior to discovering P90x. I would not see any results for at least the first month and even then they weren’t that incredible. I love how the P90x workout really focuses on getting results and getting them quickly. If you aren’t currently on P90x and If you are someone who struggles with fitness programs then the P90x Extreme Home Fitness system may be exactly what you have been searching for.
For my day 9 workout I completed the Yoga X DVD. I am not a big fan of Yoga in general but this DVD really does give me a solid workout. I did a little power Yoga on the older Power 90 DVDs when I used to work through those. I think it does loosen you up pretty good. It is sometimes hard for me to keep the perfect form during the different routines.
In other news I will be adding a new plugin to allow users to subscribe to the blog. I will give it a good test to see if we will keep it on the blog or not. I if works out alright then we will be able to put together a list of subscribers more easily.
Welcome back and on to Day 8 of my P90x workout journey. I was kind of out of energy for today’s workout which happens to be Kenpo X. I was struggling to keep up but tried anyhow. I am still glad I worked out today because I hate missing a day. If I miss a day of exercise it kind of discourages me.
I am noticing I do have a lot more energy as compared to before I re-started the P90x system. I didn’t have energy today because I didn’t get enough sleep. When I don’t get enough sleep I tend to drag all day long. This is definitely NOT recommended while going through the P90x workout. Make sure you get at least eight to nine hours of sleep every night.
I am sleeping better as well now that I am on the P90x system. The problem with last night is I had to work late so I went to bed late. I had an early morning and that’s the reason for the energy deficiency today. Oh well hopefully I can get enough sleep tonight and be able to have a more intense workout come tomorrow.
Check back here on Bold Body Fitness for my Day 9 adventures.
Well I have made it an entire week on P90x. This is definitely a milestone for me. I know it is only a week but the first week can be the hardest. This is true for me at least. I think if you make it past the first week or 2nd week you will have a good chance at finishing the entire 90 days. I am not sure if you all feel the same way, but I would love to hear what you all think.
For my 7th day I did the Chest Back DVD. I love the chest exercises. I can really feel them when you finish and the next day. I don’t feel the back exercises that much. I do suffer from some lower back pain from sitting on a computer so I am always looking forward to do the back exercises. I am sure after doing this DVD for 90 days my back will be a lot stronger.
I am following the basic program of the P90x system, but as I said before I may move onto doing doubles of the system once I am done. Either that or I will move on to P90x 2.
I will be starting week 2 of my P90x journey tomorrow. I hope you will come back and see how things are going. See you soon!
You may noticed a few days have passed between workout days but not to worry as I just didn’t have enough time to log on to the blog and post my workouts. I am happy to report I am still going strong and will continue to do so.
For day 6 I did the stretch DVD. It really will get your blood flowing and help you burn a tun of calories. For those that don’t know the stretch DVD also has cardio mixed in such as running in place. You really do get a good physical workout from this DVD and it will also give your muscles a break from weight training. This is especially important if your muscles are still very sore from the other workout DVD’s you have been going through.
I personally still need to get a exercise mat. If you workout on a carpet then you probably already know that the carpet can give you skin burn. I had some trouble with this while working through the stretch DVD today. So if you plan to do the P90x system anytime soon be sure to get an exercise mat before you get started. You will be happy you did. I will be ordering mine right after I finish writing this.
Tomorrow I will be going over my Day 7 workout. Be back again for more P90x workout updates!
The set I featured here is by Altus Athletic and it is a 32-Pound dumbbell set with a stand. The stand is a nice touch and it is still a low price. It currently goes for $54.69 with free shipping. It is sold by amazon directly rather than a 3rd party seller so you will get the free shipping. The weights are for 3lbs, 5lbs, and 8lbs. I use a higher weight for the dumbbells I use, but these may work out good for you.
Now on to today’s workout which was the Legs and Back DVD. I would have to say that all went well and I look forward to doing this workout again. I don’t really have too much trouble with the leg exercises as my legs have stayed strong during my time off P90x. I do a lot of biking so that may help, I am not entirely sure.
For those of you that have been asking whats going on with the Facebook and Twitter page I want to take a second to address this. I will be updating Bold Body fitness’s presence on these social networks soon. I didn’t get a chance to work on them at all. I guess all i can say is I have been busy and plan to get on this soon. I know you are all excited about this so don’t worry. Well I am almost at a week of P90x, which felt like it flew right by. I will be continuing my daily posting with Day 6 P90x tomorrow.
