A few years ago I read about P90X and the Muscle Confusion concept piqued my interest.
At that time I was in the middle of training for an ultra and realized that I would only be able to keep up one training regimen so I stuck with running; however, P90X it stayed in the back of my mind ever since!
I then read an article in my Fraternity Magazine which educated me on it a bit more, but I was traveling a bunch and didn’t jump in and do it.
Now I’ve been ‘on the couch’ for over a year and I realize I need to get my core back in shape so I can enjoy my favorite activities… luckily P90X can provide the solution – strengthen my core, increase muscle mass and reduce fat.
I’ll admit that spending a weekend with some college friends, including Brian Nopper, one of my best college buddies; it was great to see how P90X transformed him from a desk jockey to a ripped energetic person using P90X.
Having such a good friend do this and seeing the results helped me want to do it… check out his Get Ripped Nation Transformation Video below:
I’ll be starting the workouts soon – but I’ll keep my core values in tact:
- Listen to my body
- Stay injury free
- Enjoy life
- Cross the ‘finish line’ with a smyle on my face
I’ll also add some of my own twists to the nutrition plan and continuing taking Quantified Self data to look for patterns during in the transformation.
