UNLEASH THE BEAST!!!! P90X+

Alright! Alright!! It's been long enough, I've had time to let my shoulder get fixed. I've had time to have my second son. (OH YEAH!) During the break, my wife and I had our second son named Zachary! Born Feb. 2nd. He's GORGEOUS!!!! And I've had time to pack on ~5 lbs of body weight in the mean time. Not bad. Going from 215lbs to 185lbs during round 1, and now I'm up to 190lbs for being 5 months out.

However, during the past month, I've convinced my wife to join in on the fun and action. So occasionally during my daily entries, my wife will give her insight on what it feels like going through the program from a "women's'" perspective. I'm just excited that I got my wife to do it along with me!!!. Plus, I think it will be a great addition to everyone out there following along and wonder if a husband and wife can do the same program AT THE SAME TIME! I'll be using the weights and she's going to be using the band that came along with P90X. When it's time for pull ups, she'll use the good 'ol "Band in the door jam" method.

HERE'S THE KICKER!! This round is going to be taken to the next level! THAT'S RIGHT!!

During this past month of gearing up to do Round 2 of P90X, I've been contemplating whether to do Round 2 of P90X, which I've done, or try my luck going to the next level. Well, long story short. VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE!! So P90X+ it is... Though I could have purchased my products through beachbody.com, I decided to go to www.extremebodyworkout.com and purchase from them. My stuff was ordered Monday and was at my doorstep by Thursday! Super Fast!

So I'm going to be going through the NEXT Level of P90X. With my wife, hopefully, right next time me, I'm going to write just like I did in Round 1. I'll be adding all the good stuff, like weekly photos, new food recipes I find, my daily weights/rep spreadsheet.

I'm also working on a P90X+ workout spreadsheet, like the one I have for P90X, but changed to either include the +, or just be specifically P90X+.

Well, It's time for my first fit test before I unleash the beast tomorrow!!!

WISH ME LUCK!!!

Until then, keep pushing play!

Nicholas,
Great work! You look good, and you're an inspiration.

Is this the P90x you're watching?

http://www.zoomtorrents.com/index.php?file=P90X.Workout.DVDs.Deluxe

I see that they have an "enhanced" version, and the regular. Since I haven't done the first series, I'm assuming I should start there?

Thanks again!

I'm in Phase 2 of my P90X and it is kicking me in the butt. I'm still working out in the gym so I think both workouts are catching up with me. I'm enjoying the referral rewards though. I actually made some some money with P90X(http://www.bethechallenge.com). I'm looking forward to Insanity as well. Health is Wealth, pass it on...

Agreed, variety is the spice of life and P90x kills in that department. Congratulations on convincing your spouse to do it with you as well.

Woah dude, these people are right, you blog is totally sweet. Congratulations on the kid! You should get back on the program! I'm on day 44, you should go to my blog and give me tons of your sweet tips! (this goes for everyone else here, too!). I'd like to exchange tips, I've come up some ideas to improve the workout regimen for sure.
