After finishing up Jillian Michaels Beginner Shred I decided I would really kick it up a notch and get even more serious about my weight loss journey. Tony Horton is known for his P90X workout program and I have heard wonderful results from it. I wasn't sure I was ready for that or Shaun T's Insanity but I did think I could handle Tony Horton's newest program P90. I ordered through my Beachbody coach Stephanie and stalked the UPS tracking until it arrived at my house about a week after ordering.
I officially started the P90 program on November 1st and made my own schedule to work with my work schedule. The program comes with two different schedules that you can use depending on if you are looking to build muscle or burn fat. With each program you will use all of the workouts that are for that level but depending on the type of schedule you do you will end up with either more sculpting or cardio workouts in the week. I decided to do an even amount of both with one extra cardio (Saturday Special) at the end of each week. I have also set up five weeks for each level instead of four but in the end I have one extra workout day in my schedule.
My husband decided to do the workout program along with me and we are just finishing up week two! It has been a fabulous workout so far and I just wonder what our next level (B) will be like. We have not watched the workouts yet but will take some time in week five to preview them.
This program is a beginner workout for people who are just getting into working out, back into working out after gaining weight, surgery, having baby etc. Don't think this is an easy workout though. It is a intense training for sure! Tony has really kicked my behind in the last two weeks more than Jillian did in the Beginner Shred. I really love the Sweat A workout and not a huge fan of Sculpt A because Tony kills me with lunges and squats until my legs burn so bad I think I will fall to the floor and never get up again. I know it is a good thing because I am burning fat but I am not a fan on it while I am doing it. The cardio is a mix of side lunges, marital arts, and so much more. I find it a lot of fun that I almost forget I am working out until we hit the ab ripper workout at the end.
I took my measurements and before pictures before starting and was planning on not checking my weight until the end of level A but I will admit to caving and jumping on the scale after being on the program for 9 days. I am super excited to say I am down 4lbs. I wont be measuring myself until Sunday and then I will do it again at the end of level A. I will also take photos as I find they are really helpful to see what you have accomplished in that time.
I have also really focused on eating clean and eating frequently to fuel my body. I am drinking 70-90oz a day of water. I really do believe to get the really good results improving eating habits is a must. Workouts and diet really do go hand in hand.
