The third installment of Beachbody’s “P90X” series hit shelves this month, meaning I raced over to Amazon.com to order the at-home workout plan that — plain and simple — just works.
Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 begins it all. I’m excited to see what happens, working in at-home exercise on the 20th floor of my new building in Chicago.
To recap, in January 2010, I lost 30+ pounds (my college weight, essentially) in 45 days by sticking to the P90X workout and nutrition plans. A feat I have been proud of, definitely, but something that blew my mind more than anything else. I finished off the 90 days strong and continued to mix in P90X DVD workouts with all my running and lifting going forward.
In January 2012, I began P90X2, comprised of a lot more core strengthening exercises, as opposed to weights. It thinned me out within two weeks, and I was down to 155 pounds before I even knew it. I didn’t have much weight to lose at this point, but P90X2 gave me more day-to-day energy than I had ever felt with any workout regimen.
So, here’s to the 2014 kickoff just around the corner.
Updates will be provided here on my progress, if you’re interested.
