I initiated this blog on January 20th, 2011 as a vehicle to compel myself to:
- Learn how to establish and maintain a blog
- Chronicle my experience with P90X
My motivation was simple. Like many others my age, I found myself getting a little “loose in the cage” and fitness–or the lack of it–was beginning to compromise my ability to enjoy some of my favorite pursuits, such as backpacking and tennis. Even though I was relatively thin, I needed to lose some weight, increase my metabolism and add some lean muscle mass. Some spark in the back of my head inspired me to give P90X a try.
I felt this blog would help me stay on course with the demands of the 90 day program. It’s also an outlet for my admittedly lame sense of humor. And I suppose I also felt that chronicling my experience with this journey might prove beneficial to others who are similarly situated.
On April 22, 2011, I completed my first round of P90X. I immediately had the opportunity to realize its benefits while traveling to Alaska on a business trip. On the long plane ride home, I wrote my detailed review of the P90X program. I was so impressed with the results of P90X that I soon after began a second Hybrid round, this time incorporating Insanity to replace the cardio routines of P90X. I’ve continued on to complete a Round 3 and Round 4 P90X/Insanity Hybrid, a Round 5 and Round 6 P90X-2 effort, a Round 7 P90X/X2 Hybrid and a much needed Round 8 Recovery with Tai Cheng.
Thanks for stopping by.
