Gabe2010SE Still doing this routine ... I have taken a day off here and there, but still doing it.

Just finished "Legs & back" followed by "Ab Ripper X" ... I'm tired ...

Together, that's about 70 minutes of hard work ... took me a little longer than that to get it done, and I skipped a couple of exercises since I don't / won't lean my sweaty back against my painted walls to do the "Wall squat" exercises ...

And of the 349 reps in the "Ab Ripper X" I, once again, did 230 of them.

There are certain exercises that I just can't do all 25 reps like the people in the video, but I figure even 10-15 is better than none


On a side note, I went to get a haircut today at my regular place where I go about every 3-4 weeks, and the girl couldn't believe how I looked, she said I looked great :) , first words were "did you lose weight ?"

Mustangadam68 I started these tapes at the beginning of the summer and got about two weeks in and then i got super busy and haven't got back to them. I really should get back to them. But i do have to say that in the two weeks I did lose like 6-8 pounds and noticed that my pants were actually loose.

YellowJellyBean I just started today, Core Synergistics. Wow, that was easily the most hardcore workout of my life. I can't wait to see what happens in 89 more days.

That's actually not what P90X is, if you read the booklets. I'm glad it's working for you, but they make it very clear that it's for people who are already somewhat fit, and need a super hardcore workout to take it that next step. You can definitely follow P90X to bulk up, you just have to keep increasing your weights. I'm not going to argue with your results, though, since those speak louder than anything.
There are different versions of the P90X workout ... I'm doing the "Classic" version, and still doing it ... I'm now at about 219-220 lbs every morning, for about 2 weeks now, but I've also taken some days off in the last couple of weeks, for various reasons (exhaustion/depression/no time/ other reasons).

I started week 6 yesterday, and I do plan on finishing the 90-day program ... we'll see how many days it actually takes me ... I know it's gonna be more than 100 ... lol

But I still have people that haven't seen me in a while, comment on how much weight I've lost, and I see it myself in the extra muscle built, and in the extra exercise reps that I can do now, compared to when I started.

As far as body fat, I'm still at about 20% .... but was as high as 35% at one point, in my younger days, or maybe just last year when I weighed 275 lbs, don't know for sure since I think the last time I was measured for body fat I think I was in high school (about 18-20yrs ago ... lol)

my question is since I think there's probably a need for a pull up bar do they make any foldable ones? lol.

my dad and I are having a competition too
... whoever loses the most weight in a week doesn't have to mow the lawn that week.
Yeah, I bought a pull-up bar that goes over the doorway ... even at 235lbs, it hasn't done any damage yet ... lol

Cool competition ... you should make a longer-lasting one with bigger "winnings" ... lol
