People always ask why I keep doing P90X and not some other program. I interpret "other program" as meaning "easier program". The reason why is the X is my therapy. While going through physical therapy after several of my different surgeries, I have come to realize that many of the therapeutic moves in physical rehabilitation are similar if not the same as the moves in P90X. The last two surgeries, one shoulder and one knee, the doc recommended I continue using whatever I was doing because I rehabilitated much faster and became much stronger than other patients going through similar surgeries at that time. I also continued to drink my Shakeology daily which I believe was a great help due to the amount of nutrients I received.
A shout out to Cammie Lusk and her wonderful story. She keeps me motivated. I am not in a wheel
chair like her, but having minimum cartilage in both knees make me feel like I should be sometime. She continues to be an inspiration to the community of people with disabilities. She has an aggressive case of MS, and still keeps bringing it! I am a 40% disabled military veteran with shoulder, back, foot, and knee issues. Thank you Wheeliechick for you great example!
The one tip that I can recommend for P90Xers with knee issues. Don't jump! ;)
I still do Plyo X. I substitute jumping with correct form squats. So far it is working and I feel like I can finish the X this round. I am also doing it together with my wife. She keeps me motivated and stays positive even when I am a grouch. Thanks babe for sticking with me during this challenge!
I am currently on -23 pounds from my starting weight of 294. My goal is 194, that equals 100 pounds lost when I achieve it. I am finishing up week two of P90X tomorrow. Only 11 more weeks to go! I have lost 10 pounds in my first two weeks of this round. I can feel the muscle mass building and the fat shrinking. I went from a 42 pants size to fitting a 38 in these two weeks. My short term goal for these 90 days is to lose 40 pounds. That is 3 pounds a week on average. I will take a week off and roll into P90X2 to finish off another 30 pounds. And for the last 7 pounds to reach my goal, I choose Insanity to bring me home to the finish!
With that being said, I plan to lose 70 pounds in the next six months. Pretty good for a 40% disabled veteran huh? Well I am not there yet and could use your support. Thanks for reading my blog and stay tuned for more updates.
