So now, 2+ years later, I'm trying again. My ankle is still sore and I haven't been running, but I need some structure to working out and decided now was a good time to try again. I am doing p90x Lean rather than the original p90x. I made this choice mostly because the original routine is designed to build strength and conditioning, while the lean is mean to work cardio and reduce body fat. They both use the same set of DVD's just in a different order. Since cardio is what I'm missing most about being inured I figured it would be the better fit. Plus the p90x plyometrics video is not included, which is helpful since my ankle wouldn't handle jump training just yet.
The first workout of the series is Core Synergistic, which is by far the hardest workout of them all for me. I don't have a
What's great about the workouts is that there is a timer and a lot of variety to the exercises so it helps the time go by quickly. I did go to my real yoga class, rather than p90x yoga since I still have a few remaining weeks left on my membership before I move, so while my class probably lacked in some strengthening, it made up for in relaxation and stretching.
I could post some embarrassing unflattering photos of myself (taken as recommendation from Tony Horton to review progress) but I'll refrain until the end and there is a need for some side by side comparison.
Has anyone had any experience with p90x? several of my friends have started it, but I don't personally know of anyone who has completed the program.
