ARE YOU READY TO BRING IT? ARE YOU READY TO DIG DEEP?

ARE YOU READY TO GET INTO THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE?






If the answer is YES.... then you came to the right place.

Starting P90X January 21st!


Whether it's your first time, second time trying, or you have completed a Beachbody fitness program and looking to do it all over again, EVERYONE is welcome.

No need to be shy about joining this group. We are just a bunch of ordinary people looking to reach our personal fitness goals by using Beachbody fitness programs as a means to do it. Our group ranges from people who finished programs like P90X, Insanity, Insanity: The Asylum, Power 90, Slim & 6 to those that just opened their Beachbody workout DVD's for the first time a few days ago. We are here to help you. If you need support, motivation and/or inspiration welcome. If you need information on nutrition, welcome to the “one stop shop” for all your Beachbody needs!

Now we understand that "Life Happens" and when it does sometimes we need support and motivation to continue on our fitness journeys. This group will offer support, motivation and information on how to get over those "Life Happens" bumps in the road. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to throw in your support to others - this group is for you!

Don't be worried if you start late, that just means that there is more of us that can help get through you’re fitness program. We will share success stories and who knows you may make a friend for life while getting into the best shape of your life!

The theme for this group is, "We will leave no team member behind."

"Your life today is the result of your attitudes and choices in the past. Your life tomorrow will be the result of your attitudes and the choices you make today." - Author Unknown


Before we start there are some things you need to know.

NECESSARY EQUIPMENT

Dumbbells - You can use good ole fashion regular dumbbells from Wal-Mart or you can go to the extreme and get yourself a set of Bowflex® SelectTech® 552 Dumbbells or Bowflex® SelectTech® 1090 Dumbbells. Some of us used and will use again the CAP Barbell 40-lb. Dumbbell set from Wal-Mart. Some have since moved up to the Bowflex® SelectTech® 552 and/or 1090 Dumbbells.

Resistance Bands - The resistance bands serve as great and affordable alternatives to weights and dumbbells. They allow for more flexibility and easier storage as well. WARNING: This is something that you do not want to go cheap on. Some of the group members purchased the cheap ones thinking they were saving money and they broke. If they break, you cannot do the workouts!

Chin-Up Bar - A good ole fashion chin-up/pull-up bar found at any Wal-Mart or Target store will do.

Push-up bars - You can use standard push-up bars that can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Target. You can go with the P90X Power Stands designed and used by celebrity fitness trainer Tony Horton or you can do the good ole fashioned pushups with your hands.

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

Yoga Mat - You can pick up a good ole fashioned Yoga mat from Wal-Mart or Target.

Heart Rate Monitor - Unfortunately you can't go cheap on these. Some members tried to go cheap to save money and ended up paying more in the long run. If you are going to invest in a heart rate monitor invest in a good one. You will greatly appreciate your decision in the end.

NUTRITION

This is the most important part of any workout program, whether it is P90X®, INSANITY® Hip Hop Abs®, Slim In 6® etc. Following the recommended nutrition plan is crucial to the success of the program. Planning and preparation are key ingredients for success. This is not as hard as it seems. If you need assistance on recipes for meals, post your needs on the thread and someone from the group can share with you some recipes.

OPTIONAL NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT(S)

Shakeology®, The healthiest meal of the day. Want a simple way to transform your health? All it takes is one glass of Shakeology® a day. This ultra-premium nutritional health shake contains the world's most powerful superfoods. It's the perfect combination of antioxidants, phytonutrients, enzymes, prebiotics, protein and many rare ingredients – including adaptogens, camu-camu, and sacha inchi – giving you the essential nutrients you can't get from an ordinary diet. Replace one meal a day with Chocolate or Greenberry Shakeology to increase your energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, improve digestion and regularity, and transform your health.* and it's just 150 calories. For those people who love strawberry flavor and/or are vegan. There is Tropical Flavor which is also vegan.

P90X Results and Recovery Formula - Studies show that with proper nutrition during the first hour following exercise you can increase your body's ability to recover more than 100%. Beachbody's Results and Recovery Formula combines the proper nutrients into this state-of-the-art, great tasting, body-shaping cocktail that's guaranteed to take your results to the next level.
Whey Protein - You may find that you need to take a supplement like this to reach the necessary protein levels found in P90X's Fat Shredder Phase. Protein use is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles. You can purchase this through TeamBeachbody or get it at any GNC, Wal-Mart, even some supermarkets are carrying whey protein.

Caseine Protein - As stated above, rapid protein use us desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times; including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. What does this mean to for you? You are burning calories while you sleep!

Now that you got the proper equipment and nutritional requirements out of the way. What next?

WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS!!!!

When you write a goal, use the SMART acronym to help you make sure that you are creating something that you will actually DO!

S = Specific "I want to lose weight," is not very specific. How about: "I am going to lose 25 pounds or 3 pants or dress sizes."

M = Measurable Anything that you can measure, you can accomplish! "I will network with more people and make better connections for my business." How would you measure "more"? Try something like this instead: "I will meet and follow-up with 2 new people at every networking event that I attend this year."

A = Attainable Is it possible to attain your goal? When you create your goals and write them down you should make sure that your goals are possible! Now, you have to be cautious though. Don't go too easy on yourself. Your goals should have some stretch to them so that you can grow!

R = Realistic "I will get into shape so I can jump over a tall building in a single bound" Uh...nope, not going to happen. There are certain laws of physics that still make it impossible for humans to jump over a tall building in a single bound. Make sure that the goals you created based on reality.

T = Time Limited Give yourself a deadline. In fact this has already been done for you by the folks that created P90X. It is 90 DAYS!!!!

TAKE A BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTO AND WRITE DOWN YOU’RE BEFORE AND AFTER MEASUREMENTS.

You will want to take a before photograph of yourself along with writing down your before measurements. At 30, 60 and 90 Days you will also take a photograph of yourself and take your measurements. Comparing the before and after photos will show you how much progress you are making.

TAKE THE FIT TEST

Take the fit test prior to Day 1. This will give you a foundation to judge your fitness level. Having this foundation will help you get through the workout programs.

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS DURING THE WORKOUTS

Use the workout sheets that came with your program or download them using the links below to track how many reps you completed, how much weight you used and as you progress through the program, try to do more than you did the previous time. Writing it down will help you remember what you did and your notes you make will help you remember if the workout was too easy, too hard, or just right.

Below is a link to the workout sheets.

P90X Worksheets

TRACK YOUR NUTRITIONAL PROGRESS

Keeping a journal of what you eat and when you eat it will help you track your calories, protein, carbohydrates, fats etc. Using phone apps such as MYFITNESSPAL, or LIVESTRONG or TAP & TRACK Calorie Counter (Diets & Exercises) will be of great assistance to you. Most of the group use MYFITNESSPAL to track what they eat when they are away from my computer. All of these apps sync to their particular websites so you have a well-documented list of what you ate and when you ate it. Keeping track of calories is critical to the success of your personal fitness goals. These apps are also useful when you are out at a restaurant and you need to know if the food you are ordering is within the limits of the guidelines set forth in the fitness program. You could seriously damage your progress by ordering something that is high in calories and fat.

SO YOU’RE READY TO WORKOUT....THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

The size, timing, and content of your pre and post-exercise meals and snacks can play an important role in your energy levels during your workout, how well your body recovers and rebuilds after your workout, and whether the calories you eat will be used as fuel or stored as fat. There are numerous studies out there on whether or not it is good to eat before exercising. Depending on your particular goals and your body type will determine if you should eat before a workout or not.

During the early stages of your fitness program, you may need to supplement your water during the workout. Mixing a supplement that contains carbohydrates into your water will give you that added boost you may need to get through those tough workouts.

Some may experience lactic acid build-up in their muscles and stomach. Other supplements may be used to offset this if this occurs.

During workouts you may find that your heart rate is rising. Knowing what fitness zone you are working and depending on your goals will depend on what fitness zone you want to work out in.

SO YOU’RE DONE WORKING OUT....THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

One of the most important parts of any exercise routine is the recovery period. Rest and recovery is an essential part of any workout routine. You’re after exercise recovery routine has a big impact on your fitness gains and sports performance and allows you to train much more effectively. Recovery, after exercise, is essential to muscle and tissue repair and strength building. Studies show that carbohydrates and protein combined using a 4:1 ratio is best.

After you've finished a workout your body is warm and your muscles are tight because they've been contracting over and over. Stretching immediately after a workout is the best time to lengthen your muscles which, in turn, will reap you huge benefits on the recovery end. DON'T SKIP THE COOLDOWN PORTION OF THE WORKOUT!!!!!!!

As always we need to add the disclaimer. Consult your doctor before starting any new workout plan.

Now... Let's stop talking and let's start BRINGING IT!!!!!

RE: Miss Out on New Year's Fitness Group? New P90X Group starting Jan
1/14/13 10:18 AM as a reply to CoachDonna12.
One of the most important aspects of any fitness program besides working out and nutrition is learning. We will be discussing nutrition a lot on this thread.

Over the last couple of years of doing Beachbody fitness programs, a majority of people struggle with the nutrition.

One of the things that I do often for people is figure out their calories. As a coach I do this for my team members. Determining your calories is a way to create a foundation to build off of. Unless you know how many calories you need to take in a day, you may be taking in too less or worse too many... When I first started out using P90X I was totally confused about the nutrition part of P90X. When people get confused at something - frustration is not far behind. When frustration sets in, depression and anger are soon to follow.. Quitting is often times right around the corner...

We do not want anyone to quit! Success is all about learning and my philosophy is that if you don't learn how to do something properly, how are you going to maintain it for long. When it comes to fitness we want you to learn how to maintain what you have accomplished FOREVER!!!

We have 1 week before the start date, so there is time to get all your calories in check, percentages in check and then you can work on creating a meal plan that fits your lifestyle.

If you want help with your caloric needs and/or percentages, please feel free to post onto this message boards and we will gladly help you out.

Keep the faith, keep pushing play and Bring IT!

Hello Team!

Are you all getting as excited as I am to begin P90X? I wanted to make sure that you are all getting prepared for the round.

You will want to figure out what you will be eating during the first round. Make a schedule. WRITE IT DOWN! You don't want to be messing with your meal plan in the middle of the program. You don't see elite swimmers messing with their goggles or swim trunks in the middle of a race. If they started doing that their times would suffer. If you start messing with your meal plan it may confuse you and you will probably become frustrated and we don't want that to happen.

If you are a full club member of teambeachbody you can use the meal plan wizard under the "Eat Smart" tab. That will figure out your meal plan based on your calorie needs. It will also print out a shopping list for you so you know exactly what you need each week. If you are not using the meal plan wizard and are choosing to do it yourself, that is fine to, it will just take you a little bit longer to do. If you chose to do it on your own, you can simply just following the meal plan located in the nutrition booklet. Whatever you do make sure you write it down and commit to it prior to the start of the program!

If you decide there is something in the meal plan that you do not like, you can substitute it with something else. Just make sure that you substitute it with something that is the same. For example: 1 oz of salmon is NOT equal to 1 oz of chicken. In fact 1 oz of Salmon is equal to 1.5 ounces of chicken. If you are talking replacing 8 oz of salmon, that is a lot of chicken.... Knowing this type of stuff is crucial because if you substituted 1 oz of chicken for 1 oz of Salmon you would not be getting the same amount of protein in this particular example.

Some of you are going to be taking supplements like Shakeology, a recovery drink, whey or casein protein or any of the many amino acid supplements. If you are taking supplements make sure you have enough to get through the program. You don't want to run out in the middle of the program. If you are on a monthly delivery program, you should be good to go.

I get Shakeology monthly so that is taken care of and I'm all set with my whey protein and casein protein from GNC. I am ready...

I will leave you all with this final thought. Success happens when preparation meets opportunity. We have the opportunity to do a round of P90X with a great group of people. They are very motivating, supportive and like me serious about reaching their personal fitness goals. I see nothing but success in the near future!

Often times you will see me end my posts with, "keep the faith". That is because success is like an act of faith. You have to believe it in order for it to happen!

Keep the faith, keep pushing play and Bring IT!

Coach Donna

Let's start to get ready!

1. Take your before pictures and measurements


2. Make sure you have everything you need - including good shoes (see my first post for more information)

3. Schedule your workouts - and if possible do them at the same time each day to help reinforce the habit.

4. Get involved with this group (post your workout each day, ask questions, encourage each other - even me!)

5. make sure you know how many calories you should be taking in each day to meet your goals - if you need help i can calculate that for you.

6. Ready your meals for a few days including snacks or lunches during the day.

7. Prepare your "travel meals" the night before. dont wait till the morning to think about what to bring to work for snack and lunch - get things ready, packaged and made as easy as possible for the morning.

I hope you're as excited as I am to get started next week!

My fear when I started working out almost a year ago, was failure. Fear of being unable to lose weight, fear of failing to get into my clothes comfortably, fear of being able to finish a full program, - fear of failure.... and giving up...

How did I handle that - my first goal was to complete the entire program. I didnt worry about the weight (but I hit the nutrition) I didn't worry about doing every rep.... I worried about getting up each day and PUSHING PLAY!!

PUSH PLAY each day, check in here each day... day by day small steps - break down the big goal and we'll get there.

1/18/13 4:56 PM as a reply to CoachDonna12.
A question I've been getting a lot recently is:

"I've started my program (P90X or Insanity or other) and I've a pound or two - why?? what am I doing wrong?"

The answer is nothing! This happens to many people when they first start a program like these. First think of all the changes you are putting your body through.

1. new exercise - instead of sitting on the coach
2. More water
3. better diet

This leads to your body having to get used to all the changes and reacting to them.

Muscle is more dense than fat, but it takes up less space. That means, if you gain muscle, your scale weight may go up even as you're slimming down. Also, when did you weigh yourself, did you jump on that scale right after working out and drinking a bunch of water that hasnt had time to disperse in your body yet?

DId you not drink enough water and your muscles and cells are overcompensating and hoarding fluids.

Now, if you notice continual increase in your weight you could be taking in too many calories (but this is not typical)

Keep at it, drink your water, do your workout, and eat a clean diet. within a week this "weight gain" will be gone and your body will be on track to lose the weight you want.

OH, and do yourself a favor. HIDE the scale! Dont weigh yourself every day. Dont be a slave to the numbers. You may find your body shape change dramatically but your scale numbers not change much - that's what happened to me.

Hello Donna

I'd like to join your group and start P90X on the 21st as well. I feel I should give a little background about myself. I am a male and almost 28 and I'm really disappointed with how out of shape I've gotten over the years. I'm 6'0 tall and weigh about 190 lbs but I'm made up of a lot of jelly. I've always been active but never had a workout routine and now it is catching up to me. I'm what some would say skinny fat but really don't look it on the outside fully dressed. Through my wellness screening at work, I've been measured (the X-box controller looking gadget that you hold -not sure on accuracy) to have about 24% BF. I work a swing swift schedule with some 8 hour days and also some 12hr days and nights sitting behind a computer screen (actually seven screens but who's counting). emoticon

I've tried P90X a couple times before but I lose motivation especially with the schedule I work. I am hoping to stick with it this go-round. I have the dumbbells, bands, pull up bar, BF pinch measuring device, etc. I need to order the post workout recovery drink but my workout will begin before it arrives. Does GNC or Walmart have something similar? Also, shakeology is a bit expensive, anything I can substitute in it's place? One of my biggest obstacles will be giving up fast food, Dr. Pepper, and beer. emoticon I have a daughter on the way that is due at the end of April and I want to complete one round of P90X before she is born. I've never stuck with any workout routine before and I'm hoping this time is different. I still have some doubts though but I am willing to give it a go.

My goal is to cut my BF in half and get toned? Could this be accomplished in one round? Thanks!

Hi Donna! I am on day 3 of my first journey with p90x but if possible I would love to join your group. I am a 33 year old stay at home mom. I have a 7 year old and a still nursing 1 year old. With both of my pregnancies I was very ill. I had hyperemesisi. Even though I was on meds to help the only things I could keep down were carbs. So I gained an unhealthy amount of weight and ever since I have been struggling to get it off. My goals through beach body and p90x are to get myself healthy, get back in shape and drop this weight all while nursing until my daughter is ready to stop.

Finch,

Glad you found us - and count yourself a member of our group!!!

Congratulations on the expected birth of your daughter in April. A goal of completing P90X before her birth is an awesome goal to have. You may have read in one my posts that my first goal was to finish the 90 day program! I see that as your goal as well. Finish this program!

Sticking with us I'm confident you'll reach that goal!

Until your recovery drink arrives you can use 8 oz of chocolate milk and 1/2 a banana to reach to that 4:1 ratio we are looking for in a recovery drink.

Giving up fast food is a matter of planning and (for me) thinking of how hard I work each morning (at 5am) and not wanting to sabotage myself! I'll be posting later today on planning meals - let me know what you think.

Do you know how many calories you should be eating each day? IF not let me know and feel free to buddy request me - I like keeping in touch with everyone!

Donna

GET READY!!! YOU ARE GOING TO KILL P90X!!!!!

Let's create a virtual GOAL BOARD.. This GOAL BOARD will memorialize your goals. Each of us in this group will post what our goals are and what program we will be using to reach those goals. Many people have trouble finding the time to set aside to accomplish their goals and ambitions. And some aren’t even exactly sure what theirs are or they know what their goals are and then tend to forget about them when "Life" gets in the way. Having a goal board can help you realize what you want out of life and help you reach those goals and dreams faster because it serves as a visual representation of where you stand in achieving them.

So please take a moment to post your goals!!! Not only will this serve as a reminder of what our goals individually, it will also help the others to know what your goals are so we can help you achieve them.



Here's mine:

Perfect... just started today (21st) - count me in!!!

One question... should I pause the ab dvd and do 25 or just do as many as I can within the time they give?

Thanks.


DoctorStock glad to have you here! I would begin by doing as many as you can in the time they give. There is a lot to be said about watching ourselves progress. Before you know it you'll see your reps go up and within a few weeks you'll be close if not at the 25 in many of the exercises. Its great to see ourselves progress - its great for our motivation and helps keep us going!

One thing I remember was that I was getting frustrated (yes even coaches get frustrated LOL) because I just could not get in more than 16 of the V-up rolls ups and I was in my 8th or 9th week and most other exercises were very close or at the 25 reps...

One night I happen to pay a bit more attention to what Tony was telling us and I realized I was counting wrong! I was doing counting 1 for every 2 (I was at 32 - not 16!) BTW, I was wiped out too by trying to go faster! I still laugh when I think of it.

I'm glad you're here with us!
