Just posted these on FB, and decided to share here as well. Ive been using p90x and p90x2 programs for a little while, and here are some of the pics with my results this far. The only reason for posting this, is a possiblity that it may help inspire someone to start exercising and that would be well worth it. Cheers!

Were you really out of shape when you started?

I have a coworker who did p90x and he looks really good, too. He said it was really difficult to get started.

Congrats on your progress!!! You should be proud of yourself and your accomplishments!

Okay so what is the difference between p90x and p90x2?? We have p90x...wasn't aware there was another version. We have p90x but haven't seen the other one.

I was completely out of shape when i started. Ashamed to say, i couldnt do a single push up or a pull up. Felt like crap all the time and couldnt walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. It was pretty rough the first couple of weeks, i was so sore i could barely dress myself or brush my teeth...lol, but after that i got pretty much hooked and looked forward to every workout each day. Its been a great experience.

p90x2 is the newest program, but i wouldnt recommend it to anyone, except active athletes or someone who just got finished with a round or two of p90x. THe difficulty is way up, imagine doing pushups with both of your hands on medicine balls and your feet on a stability ball, if you get the idea. p90x2 is a follow up and builds on p90x success, but its not as complete of a program. great for p90x graduates that want more challenge though. Have you done p90x? how did it work for you?

I've done p90x but had to take a break due to surgery. Now I do some of the videos but not all (I don't really care for the yoga video and I don't do the abs video either). I need to recommit to it, but I haven't found the motivation yet. I have been running and right now my focus has been on getting ready for some fall races that I already registered and paid for! I need to get back to the weights though...desperately!

My husband has done the program as well but he was already pretty fit to begin with. He didn't do it according to their program either. He plays hockey twice a week so he used those days as his cardio instead of doing Kempo and Plyo.
