Day One of P90X

I’m not posting any pics.  Screw that shit.  I know people love looking at before and after photo’s, but maybe I’ll post those at the end of the 90 days, not during.  I don’t even know if I’ll make it to the end.

Day one was back and chest.  A lot of push-ups, chin-ups, and pull-ups.  I did what I was able to, which was a lot less than the last time I attempted P90.  It feels like I’ll need a lot more than 90 days.

When I first did P90X, it kicked my ass.  I was sweating profusely, super hot, drank a bunch of water – the works.  It was great.  But this time however, I physically couldn’t do what I did last time.  There’s not much of a workout if I physically can’t do one push-up.  5 years ago I was able to do 20 push-ups!  It whooped my ass but I was still able to do it.

I did what I could this time.  I had to do modified push-ups.  Not the girly kind that has me on my knee’s, but the kind where I don’t go all the way down.  And I used a chair to support my weight when I did the chin-ups.  I kept doing reps of 5 for everything which is hardly anything that can work up a sweat, but that’s all I had in me.

I didn’t think I’d be sore today but I am.  I’m feeling it.  Not horribly, but enough.

I’m going to attempt day two of P90X and after, if I’m not too worn out, I’ll hike up my big little mountain.
