Let me introduce myself, my name is Mike or CoachRadRazor. I had never thought I would be doing this for one year and a half but since it has had such a revolutionary impact on my life, I am never going to quit! My 3 rounds of P90X and 1 round of Insanity helped me drop 68 pounds, increased my social confidence, and massively improved my happiness. I now feel better physically but my mentality has rocketed into positivity. Now I am doing my 1st round of P90X2 and looking to increase my goals and reach my full potential. I invite you to join towards the adventure of a life time into health, fitness and the fullest potential you can achieve!!


Let me give a quick insight as to what P90X & P90X2 is about.

P90X & P90X2 is a 90 day workout program to help get you in the best shape of your life! Each routine is different, specifically made to target certain areas of your body. Routines vary from push-ups, pull-ups and resistance training to Plyometric jump training to Yoga and Stretching. P90X & P90X2's main credence is Muscle Confusion. Every 30 days, you switch up the routines so your body doesn’t adapt, giving you the ability to continue to lose weight, gain strength and see some fantastic results! All you have to do is stay committed and you are golden. What do I mean by stay committed? I am talking about giving 100% each workout and 100% to the nutrition portion as well. Working your tooshie off is only half the battle, the other half is in the kitchen.

Also, you must remember to Write It Down! When doing resistance training, you want to get in the habit of writing down rep information after each exercise. Keep THESE WORKSHEETS and a pencil in your exercise area. Keep track of how many reps you did along with what weight/band you used. It will help remind you what was done prior so you can set new goals. I also put little notes by the side of exercises like; “+” add weight “-“ drop weight “FORM” to improve form etc. for next time. You do not have to limit writing things down to just Resistance Training. You can do it for your Cardio Routines too!

Equipment:
-Dumbbells and/or Resistance Bands – Both are used in a variety of ways in P90X & P90X2. Pick which you are comfortable with and get pumped! If you travel a lot, resistance bands are a huge plus to have!
-Pull-Up Bar (or Resistance Bands) – Pull-up bars are manufactured to fit in most doorways. If a pull-up bar isn’t possible, resistance bands will work too. You NEED to have the ability to anchor or hold the band in place. This is crucial! If it’s not done properly, you can seriously injure yourself.
-There are other pieces of equipment that are not required but are highly recommended which is: Push-Up Stands, Yoga Mat, Yoga Block(s) and a Heart-Rate Monitor. For P90X2, additional optional equipment is Stability Ball, Foam Roller and Medicine Ball(s).

Here are some tips that will help you get to your fitness and health goals.


1. Get Those Numbers! Before starting P90X, P90X2 or your program of choice, you should take all the measurements of your body; thighs, biceps, waist, chest, weight, etc. Take Before Photos too! Those photos will give you a point to start gauging your results. The following link will send you to a video tutorial on how to best photograph your transformation.>>>CLICK HERE<<<

- When you hit DAY 31, 61, and 91 repeat the photograph process. Trust me, comparing the old with the new makes for a fantastic time!

2. Nutrition is the second key to success! Nothing is more important than what you put into your body! Track and plan out your meals; this will greatly aid your journey. Seriously, if you want to lose weight or get six pack abs, you must watch what you eat. Be sure to eat properly, with the correct nutrition and calorie count you can't go wrong. For hydration, a good rule of thumb is 1 quart of water per 50 pounds of weight. If losing weight is the goal, proper nutrition and hydration will naturally melt the fat away!

- Shakeology can play a key part in your transformation process! It has definitely aided in mine! I highly recommend it because it gives you a days worth of fruits and vegetables but also opens up meal opportunities for your day!

3. Attitude, Accountability and Support are equally crucial. Remember that it isn’t going to happen immediately, it will take time and dedication to alter and adapt to a new routine and potentially a new lifestyle. Having support and posting to a thread like this one has been proven to increase your ability to finish the routine you have started! When you PUSH PLAY, you just need to do one thing; “Do Your Best And Forget The Rest!” You are the only one who knows how far you can push yourself. Staying positive is the anchor that will push you through tough times and boost you through the best.



This thread isn’t just for P90Xers, graduates of P90X, or those who have completed P90X or P90X2. It doesn’t matter which program you are using. This thread is here for you! Maybe you just started this fantastic adventure of health or this is your ten year anniversary. It’s for people who started a month, week or a day ago, also for people who are starting today, tomorrow, this week, next week or next month. This is for people looking for advice on how to start, where to start, questioning to start or in the need to start. It is also for varying fitness levels, from marathon, triathlon, or decathlon runners to people who haven’t exercised since High School PE. This is here to help you and boost your confidence, motivation, accountability, positivity and ultimately, YOUR RESULTS!

Thank you for that shout out CoachMikeWard, CoachGShort and CoachMikeMJM! My energy levels are shooting through the roof on a daily basis after this transformation of mine! Seriously, I have trouble sleeping sometimes because of the excess energy haha. I need to find a way to store it for rainy days or for days I just feel like bouncing off the walls!

Also, thank you for posting that picture CoachGShort! I LOVE that photo. What make me laugh about it, I can actually see that happening. With Tony Horton's personality, I could actually see him repelling from the roof in S.W.A.T. gear ready when you even think of eating something bad for you haha!!

Thanks for that CoachGreg, CoachZarno & CoachTom!! I know this is my calling to help as many people as possible! I am definitely ready to pay it forward! I had struggled with weight loss and self confidence for so long I was ready to give up and stay the same. Then I came onto these boards and received the support I needed from a thread like this one. It helped me keep pushing play and also completely changed my mindset. I am here to help people with the same struggles but also the others who struggle with other issues. I also encourage people to post here who want to help and support others, want a place to hangout and enjoy the journey along with everyone else, or to ask questions.

This be my accountability post:
I did Plyocide and crushed it! My form improved but also my endurance improved as well! Better endurance equals pushing myself harder. Pushing myself harder equals feeling greatly worked like the first day of doing Plyocide! Ah how life is an awesome boat like that haha. I absolutely love the stretching at the end. I am going to incorporate after my runs now. Will help workout the soreness a lot better than my regular stretches.

Today's meal plan:

Breakfast:1 whole egg & 2 egg whites, 1 potato, 3 jalapenos, 1 red bell pepper, and 1 garlic clove.

Lunch: green chile stew. Contents are: green chile, potatoes, onions, and hamburger meat.

Snack: yellow meat watermelon

Dinner: Shakeology

I use Shakeology for my dinner just because I have such horrible creavings for food at night, I would rather replace it with a filling, healthy shake. It has done wonders for me so far, can't wait to see how much improvement I will achieve later down the road.

CoachRad - Nice place you have here, full of great info and a coach who is totally committed. Great job paying it forward. I see you did Plyocide today, great disc. More like Insanity than the P9)X Plyometrics which was a lot more jumping. As you mention pushing yourself harder, that is the beauty of these discs, is there is so much room to grow and as you get better, they get harder, but you get stronger, it's endless how far you can take them. Keep up the great wotk and let's get some people in here to keep th fire going.

Hey CoachLarryM! I am definitely committed into helping others in my community and online!

You are right! Plyocide feels like Insanity all over again minus the jumping and Shaun T lol! I love Plyocide, makes me nostalgic to put in an Insanity DvD and push play. Hmmm...maybe I will haha! I can't believe next week is the rest week, I am going to miss doing plyo but! I will still keep a running.

That is one thing that P90X, P90X2, and Insanity brought back into my life, running. I love running but I had to stop since I was overweight. All that additional pressure on my knees destroyed them and I thought I would never run again. I am so happy to be wrong!!!
