So I've decided to take charge and get active and really fit this summer. I've decided to do the "lean" routine from P90x. Oh boy, I've been doing it for only two days and I've been feeling the burn. It hurts to even move my legs! When I got word from my doctor that there was something wrong with me (which I will not get into), I decided that one thing that could really help me was to put on a lot of lean muscle and really try to understand my body. I've also been getting great use out of my Reebok Easytones which I bought a while ago. I'm hoping to chronicle how the program is going for me every week. Although I'm not really trying to lose weight or anything, I really do want to get more fit and put on lean muscle, especially around my core which is really weak.
For those of you who don't know what P90x is, its an intense fitness routine based on muscle confusion. It says that it is supposed to transform your body from "regular to ripped" (not really what I'm going for here) but I've seen real life examples of women who have used it and it has worked wonders for them. There are a variety of workouts, from Kenpo, Polymetrics, Synergistics, to Ab Ripper X (this one is insane). So wish me luck, and I'll definitely update you as to how its going!
If you would like to see examples of P90x at work, just google search P90x before and after and you'll see what I'm talking about!
Ps, has anyone else ever tried P90x? Or any other fitness routine? What are your fitness plans for this summer if any?
