3 Month Experiment P90X Results: Part 1-

I’ll cut right to the chase on my results for the P90X 3 month experiment…I made improvements, but not any mind-blowing “ah-ha-moments”.  Because you don’t know me on a day-to-day basis, you may think ‘she didn’t really work the program’ as they recommended.  You would be wrong.  I was 100% diligent on all the recommended workouts.  Month 2 and 3 I did doubles (2 workouts per day as is an option that is given in the program) as well as Pilates and Spinning and the occasional bike or walk on the street.  I followed the food program to the letter about 90% of the time, occasionally going out for meals, but even then trying to mirror the recommended meal.  The third month I went back to my previous food plan (before starting P90X) because I couldn’t agree with the lower protein/really high carb diet they advised.  I still didn’t see startling results.   I tried contacting them for an explanation on the third month food plan, but never got an answer.

I will admit that I feel stronger, with better endurance and I really enjoy the DVD’s themselves.  I agree with Toni Horton’s use of stretching, and diversity in his training schedule, plus his enthusiasm for the philosophy of weight training.

I’m glad that I have the DVBD’s and I will continue to integrate them into my fitness plan for the future.  My trainer that I see once a week has her philosophy about why the numbers didn’t change more dramatically which I will share tomorrow when I reveal the numbers themselves.
