    Does anyone have P90X Disk 1 - Chest and Back that I could borrow/have/have a copy of? I ordered the set online (not from the website but from a different website/reseller) and all of the disks work and play great and are the originals (this was brand new shrinkwrapped) EXCEPT for Disk 1. I haven't started the program yet but I was just testing everything out and wanted to watch a little of the disks first to get an idea of the program.

    Please contact me if you have it and could do this for me...I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Hello, X warriors!

    So, I did Arms & Shoulders today, no bonus and left Abs ripper for after work.
    The WO was OK, I was not using heavy weights so to get comfortable with the movements.
    I need to get more weights as well! I have 8 lbs as the heaviest.

    Oh, my, what will my DH think! :D

    I really must not ask him how my muscles look every day. The poor man is going bonkers.
    The classic "Does this dress make me look fat" replaced by "Honey, are my triceps starting to shape up?"

    What a poor husband to say? Boouuaaahhhhahaha!
  • I need to get more weights as well! I have 8 lbs as the heaviest.

    Umm, yeah! You will outgrow an 8 pound dumbbell set in no time if you havent already. Let me give you a very personal example. When I completed one round of the X I had to upgrade from a 25 pound dumbbell set to a 90 pound dumbbell set. HUGE difference the X made.

    The poor man is going bonkers.

    AWESOME now that is hot :smile:

    Did shoulders and arms tonight. I, too, need some more weights. My heaviest are 10 lbs.
    And this was my first Ab Ripper. Messed up and missed it with chest and back. All I can say is, "HOLY COW!" :ohwell:

    Hello Kathy, keep me posted anyway I can help I'm here. I'm finishing my first round of p90x next week with my last recovery week. Guess what after that, you guessed it round (2), with extra cardio workouts mixed in there.

    Let me know how I can help,
    Goe bless,

    Your friend in health,

    Not sure how you can copy the dvd, but I'd be glad to send you a copy. I'm starting round two after next week.

    After 12 weeks I'm still saying "HOLY COW!!!". That' muscle confusion for you though, no time to plateau.

    Keep the change coming.

    Angelo:

    Congrats! You are almost a p90x grad! AWESOME!

    Did you take before and after pics and measurements? Will you share them.

    I have been pushing play, but needed to take a few extra rest days because of hip issues and workout buddy was sick. Hope to do doubles this week and next before I go away.

    all the best

    Angelo,

    You are working it. Good for you. I'm in the second week of phase 2. I'm getting bored---not a Tony Horton fan but I'm still pressing play.

    Yep same here, I'm thinking of augmenting the workout a bit. Despite changing the routine it's getting pretting repetitive. I'm probably going to look at crossfit soon, but I too will keep pressing play. Stay encouraged and fit to improve on your results. My motivation is loosing what I've achieved.

    Take care,
    Angelo

    That's what I love about P90X, you can change it around and use it in different ways. Honestly, I hardly ever watch the DVD's anymore, I just use the manual for my weight lifting w/ my hubby. It's worked great for us, and he's about done w/ his 2nd round!! He's having people ask him what he's doing and had a co-worker that is going to buy P90X after seeing his changes! :wink: If you want a shorter workout but still see results, try doing Chest & Back and Shoulders & Arms w/ just ONE set of each exercise (you know how they repeat doing the same exercise). But... do the first set with as HEAVY weights as you can, try to go no more than 10 reps, but closer to 8 reps. And do your pullups to failure, and then do as many negatives (use a chair to get over the bar if you have to, then lower slowly down). It's worked great for us and makes a quicker workout, only about 30 min!! HTH! Let me know if you need any more suggestions!

    I really believe great minds think alike, this morning after I finished legs and back I looked at the log and thought, man I could combine workouts and only do one set to incorporate the entire body. Jess, get out of my head please.

    Thanks

    Hey Everyone! Good to see some fellow P90Xer's!!! In August I hit my 1 yr on P90X. I went from a size 14 to a size 5. The workouts are AWESOME! I am now at the end of Round 5. In February I won the transformation contest and $1,000. I now have the entire Tony Horton Collection. On this Round, I am doing the X with some P90X+ and his new 1 on 1 workouts! I am addicted to this workout program. My hardest thing, was learning how to eat clean. Now if I eat something bad, I tend to get sick. Even though I lost many sizes, I built muscles in my arms, shoulders, back, legs and I have ripped abs. I weigh 142 and that is my steady weight. I am 5'9" tall. I never step on the scale anymore and just go by how my clothes fit. TONIGHT IS P90X PLYOMETRICS! YEEEEHAAA!!!
