Two months ago I wrote a post about packing on a few pounds and said I would share my results. Well I managed to gain about 6 pounds and increased my lifts in every single exercise which is always good. An example is the machine bench press, which I did 5 reps of 135 on Day 1. The other day, I pumped out 10 reps of 175. Big difference!
Now that I am moving and will no longer have a gym, I have decided to start the P90X program today. If you have never heard of it, you can check out the details of the program here. Basically, it’s a 90 day fitness program that has helped tons of people transform themselves. The program includes 12 workout DVD’s along with a meal plan to go along with the program. Best part of all, it can be done at home with only a few pieces of equipment (dumbbells, chin-up bar, push-up handles, etc.)
If all goes as planned, I will have my last day on August 15th. I will be posting my pictures and progress after each phase of the workout (3 phases total), along with my before pictures below.
Here is a breakdown of my stats prior to starting the program:
- Weight: 173.8 Pounds
- Bodyfat (Using Scale): 15.0%
- Flexed Arm Size: 35 cm
- Waist (Belly Button Level): 84 cm
The first phase is 4 weeks along, so I will post some new pictures along with my stats when I get to the end of it. I also plan on putting up weekly recaps just to keep track of where I am and how it is going.
Wish Me Luck!
Update – I managed to finish phase 1 and you can view the results here.
