For those who are unaware of the layout of the program, the first day is back and chest, (aka pull up and push up hell) so I've been procrastinating getting a pull up bar because I have ZERO upper body strength. I put together and set up the bar last night, as well as mentally prepared myself by watching the workout in advance so I could see what I was in store for.
On a scale of 1-10, my confidence rose from a 0 to a 5 when they showed how you could use a chair to do a modified pull up / chin up!!
So I wouldn't say that I was completely awful- definitely not good. My problem is I don't know if I'm doing a lot of the exercises properly... I mean the diver bomb push ups... I don't even know if one of mine are right. If you want some entertainment, watching me do these will surely make you feel better about your own abilities.
I'm proud to say I completed it- there were some modifications I needed to do for the push ups, and I had to stop my second round of decline push ups, but other than that, I'm not too sore (i might be singing a different tune tomorrow)
So I decided to take my 'before photos' so I can track every 30 days.
These first 2 are taken last week before my cleanse- I could tell I was bloated, but I had no idea until looking at todays photos.
So again these 2 photos are before the cleanse. And the rest were taken today, 6 days into cleansing and eating clean (zero dairy, sugar, and carbs outside of fruit)- I don't want skewed results, so I'm not flexing in any of the photos because I want to see how my muscles just naturally look
Now you can slowly see my abs without even flexing- hopefully they'll fullly come out of hibernation soon!
I love it when my butt hangs out....
My camera started fogging up so the rest are a little blurry because its my phone... might redo these tomorrow
Because you know... I always stand like this
I wish I could say its muscle, but my shoulder blades always have stuck out
So there you have my before p90x, and 30 days in I'll do an updated photo shoot- hopefully less but will be hanging out at that point.
So I know quite a few people are doing it, anyone else have great results with p90x?
