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.... xthen you came to the right place.

Starting P90X February 1st!


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!!!!!

Ok, so lets get started with this! Here we go!

This is the preparation week. I'm going to touch all the important points to be prepared and ready for the new P90X!. If you already started 1 week ago, Click RESET and start with us if you want. That way we are all in the same waveee.

PICTURES BEFORE

Everyone take their Day 1 pictures this weekend. We need those Day 1 pictures for the Shock and Awe that is going to happen after the 90 days!

Also lets start doing up our calories to see know exactly what we need when we start!
If you need help with this, let me know. Once you finish that, start putting a meal plan together. We will be doing the Fat Shredder Phase; Phase I of P90X.

This is the hardest phase in terms of nutrition! No doubt about it, but if you do it correctly, the fat melts off your body! Just be prepare to give 100%

Track your progress!

Those that start out trying to get into the best shape of their lives often times feel overwhelmed with ALL he stuff they need to do. Balancing nutrition with working out, with family time, with your social life can be difficult. We understand that.

Today's tip involves keeping track of your progress. A lot of people who are successful in reaching their personal fitness goal did so by keeping a fitness journal. And keeping a fitness journal offers the greatest guarantee for success. Even if you have a personal trainer/ a Beachbody Coach or a fitness fanatic friend, keeping a fitness journal is a must!!!! It will not only keep you accountable, it will also show you just how close you are getting to those personal fitness goals...

It also gives you a great understanding of where your struggles are and where your making progress. For example, if you had a day that you ate perfectly during week 1 or week 2. Eating perfectly means you hit your calorie goal. Your percentages of macronutrients ( proteins, carbs and fats ) were spot on etc. etc. Write it down! During week 3 you might be struggling with hitting those calorie goals. Writing down what you ate during week 1 and/or week 2 will allow you to go back and refer to it quickly and thus not get frustrated because you can't remember what you ate.

In regards to your workouts. You may not be able to do a push-up without using your knees. However writing how many of those you did will help you recognize that you are making progress - even when you may not feel like you are making progress.

On the flip-side you might be struggling with pull-ups. Pull-ups are essentially back exercises. You might have to modify your workout to incorporate another type of back exercise to replace the pull-ups. That is ok.. Modifications are good. Writing down what exercise you used to replace the pull-ups will give you a record of what you did and how you did 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 should be already preparing all the things you will need to begin P90X. That means you should be reading over the P90X nutrition plan, making sure you figured out what level you will be eating at and double check your math. During my first round I made the mistake of miscalculating my calorie count and ended up in the wrong level.

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.

In preparation for my journey, I just received my results and recovery formula the other day. I get Shakeology monthly so that is taken care of. Today I went out and purchased my whey protein at 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!

I'll be starting a hybrid routine of P90X and Insanity on January 29th. I've gone through both before individually, and have started a hybrid mix before, but never finished it. I'm just looking to shed a few pounds, but want to lose body fat percentage, more than anything. I'm 5'9 and currently at about 170 lbs. with about 13% body fat. Want to be at 160-165 lbs., but at about 9-10% body fat.

Can't wait to get this going to be ready for spring!

Hi Pebbles, Welcome to the February 1st GROUP!, It's ok if you start a few days before.

I have sent you a Buddy request, there you can send me your info privately, not a problem.

What you feel at the beginning of the workout, the first 1 week, is water retention. This is normal as the muscle it's under a new pressure and is defending itself, but you will lose that in week #2 and begin losing weight, Do not get discouraged by this. Remember this is a 90 days program, not a 7, or 15 or 30. So, just keep pushing play.

We got your BACK!

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!

There have been several questions regarding nutrition that I wanted to take a moment to address.

As far as the nutrition part and counting calories, I would highly recommend that you sign up for a FREE Acount with MYFITNESSPAL.COM, LIVESTRONG.COM or TAP AND TRACK. Each of those sites has their own phone app as well. If you have a smart phone, you can download the app as well. Each time you stick something in your mouth to eat it, you log it into the websites phone app or log it into the website directly. That way it will track your calories for you. If you enter the information on your phone it automatically syncs to that particular apps website. It's awesome!

I found that when I didn't write down what I was eating, I quickly forgot what I ate. Not to mention looking up every individual thing I ate to see its calorie count got old quite fast. Think about the time it takes to log in a tossed salad! LOL!

All the above mentioned calorie counting sites and phone apps all work the same. It comes down to personal preference in regards to what site and what app you want to use.

What I love about the P90X nutrition plan is that ALL the meals in a particular phase can be the same in regards to what you eat if you choose to do that. There is no requirement that you have to switch your meals around. That is done strictly due to personal preference. So if you like what you eat during week 1, and find that it works for - Week 1 is the same as Week 2 is the same as Week 3 and Week 4. Week 5 goes into the next phase and you do the same thing all over again for the next 4 weeks.

Of course you can mix it up a little so you don't get bored with what your eating. This is why it is so important to write down what you eat. If I want to change the 8 oz salmon with something else, I log onto the website, go to the particular day I ate salmon and it shows me the calorie count, protein count, carb count for that particular food item. I also find it nice that I can enter in the substituted food and it will show me the calorie count and protein and carb count of that food and totals it into the entire days calorie count. So I can see if the substituted food was a good choice or a bad choice. If it turns out to be a bad choice because it may happen to be too low in protein I can erase the food completely or I can increase the serving size of that food choice right on the website. Each time I do something like this it re-calculates the calories, protein and carbs for me. It a huge time saver.

It is also good if you choose to do another round of P90X. If that is the case, you return to Day 1 and see what you ate on that day and begin again!

So sign up for one of the website(s) and start plugging in your meals and see how the calorie count works. You have a few days to practice adding in foods and meals to see how your caloric intake looks.


Keep the faith, keep pushing play and as always BRING IT!

SUCCESS happens when PREPARATION meets OPPORTUNITY....

That being said, this is the week you need to gather the items you are going to need for this next round. You should spend this week getting the foods you will need to eat and purchasing or ordering the supplements you will be taking.

MONEY SAVING TECHNIQUES: If you purchase your food on a week by week basis you will accomplish two things. 1) You may be able to get some of the menu items on sale. ie: chicken goes on sale all the time. Supermarkets tend to rotate their sales on fish weekly, so one week you may be able to get salmon on sale and another week you might get tuna on sale. 2) You may find that you are getting bored with what you are eating. In fact I know you will get bored with what your eating..

You are allowed to mix and match foods ( make sure they are equal to each other ). Just look at the back of your nurtition guide to see what you can mix and match. Also make sure that you understand that mixing different foods might mean you need to eat more or less of that food to equal out. For example: 1 oz of salmon is equal to 1.5 oz of chicken. Another example is 1 oz of salmon equals 1oz of LEAN red meat. So if you are bored with chicken and salmon happens to be on sale at a great price, you can substitute salmon for the chicken.

Also in the example of the P90X chef salad it calls for

Purchasing your meals a month at a time means your stuck with what you purchased, unless of course you want to spend more money purchasing something different.

As an example this is from Coach John:

"I normally go out on Sunday ( start of the sales week ) and pick up what I need for that week. On Sunday I cook up my chicken so I have it for the entire week. I found that chicken gets boring after awhile so I purchased some buffalo sauce ( FRANK’S® REDHOT® BUFFALO WING SAUCE ) is 0 calories! The only thing you need to be aware of with anything in a bottle or can is that it contains sodium. This buffalo wing sauce has 460 mg of sodium. Now you don't have to purchase this kind, just look at the nutrition labels and make sure it is 0 calories."

Good tips Alberto! Early preparation can go a long ways to finish, and enjoy this program.

Congrats Pebbles on finishing your first day!

I start tomorrow, but today was my first day of eating clean. I usually eat well, but admittedly, I haven't been as disciplined as of late. Today did remind me of why it is so important to eat well. You really do feel more energized. Where before I craved mostly junk food, now I almost can't stand how they make you feel afterwards. Eat healthy, have more energy, feel better, and live longer.

Chest and Back tomorrow. Can't wait!

TIME TO START FIGURING OUT WHAT YOUR P90X SHEDULE IS GOING TO BE!!


This is a 6 days a week program. So based upon your work schedule, family life, social schedule etc...pick out what day is going to be your rest day and what days you will work out. For me, I made Sundays my rest days and did the program (and will be doing the program) Mon-Sat. This worked well for ME. Figure out a schedule that will work best for you! Are you a morning workout person? Are you a night workout person? or do you workout in the middle of the day?

The choice is yours! Make it work for YOU! But make sure to BRING IT EVERYDAY!!!!

I just jumped back into P90x this morning... did it two years ago with a shaky schedule.
I'm committed to busting out all 90 days this time.
I started this morning with Plyometrics, my favorite workout, just to get back into the swing.
I joined up on the website this time to track my progress and help keep me accountable.

I'll be doing the 6 days a week with Sundays off with you, Alberto.
I'm not a morning person, but that's the only time in my daily schedule that's available... so 6:00am it is!

Let's bring it!
