P90X Day 1: Chest & Back

Alright, so i've decided to try P90X (, for those of you who do not know what it is) to get my body back into shape. The "X" apparently stands for "extreme", which i will say, this program is exactly that so far. This blog is a little late, since i'm day 4 already, but just wanted to track my progress. Oh, and depending on how it goes, i may or may not post before and after pictures...haha.

Starting Stats:
Weight: 230.8 lbs
Fat % : 27.5%
Waist : 40.5" (yikes!)

Day 1: Chest and Back (~50 min)
One word describes this work out, INTENSE. workout essentially alternates chest (push-ups) and back (pull-ups). and on top of that, after you're done with that, you tackle Ab Ripper X, which is 339 reps of various ab exercises. the key to chest and back? PACE YOURSELF. you think you're all manly and do as many reps as you can in the beginning, when you repeat the set, forget it, i was down to 3 reps because i ran out of gas.
