P90X Phase 1 Update - A look Back

P90X Week 4 and The Start of Phase 2 - Week 1

Week 4 wrapped up Phase 1 for me, and I am pretty amazed I made it through! To be honest, I hated week 4 the most! I had to do yoga twice, which I did not like at all! It also introduced me to Core Synergistics which I loved! Phase 1 was a fun phase! But I am ready to be on Phase 2. I love the workouts more than Phase 1 so that is exciting to me! As far as results, I am honestly disapointed.

To sum up Phase 1 for everyone that wants to try it.... It will take your body about a week - week and a half to get used to the diet. You will be drained and over tired, just as I was. But after that feeling goes away and your body isn't addicted to carbs anymore, you will be so glad that you did it! Most of the exercises I could do 5-10 more of than when I started which is amazing. Which kept me on the positive side, like I said... not really any results and so that got me really down!

Weight Bust Arms Waist Hips Thighs
Beginning 133 lb 36" 10.5" 27" 35" 20.5"
End Phase 1 130 lb 36" 10" 26" 36" 20"

Phase 2
Much more challenging and much more fun! Wish that Week 4's Core Synergistics was still on for week 5! They could have traded that for yoga haha! I will be honest and tell you that I skipped Wednesday's workout because I had a photoshoot and didn't want to overdue myself. Phase 2 's diet is soooo much easier! And I am so stoked about that part! At this point, I am praying that I see more results this Phase than last!

My least favorite is still yoga and I don't see that changing at all! Plyo, Kenpo, Chest Shoulders and Triceps as well as legs and back are all tied for the first spot! Which I guess is a good thing because that contains most of my week!

If anyone wants to shout out and give me any tips on the results part please feel free!... Or have Tony call me! haha.

Below is an outline of what Kim has to look forward to the next 4 weeks.

    My results really kicked in between weeks 8-9. Stay the course.... also, you mentioned in a previous update that you had modified the diet- diet is prob 80% of visible results.

    Thanks for the input Brandon. She modified the diet, but still is following the set guidelines. A registered dietitian is helping her with the diet.

    I am starting week 8. I couldnt be happier with the results so far ! I also modified the diet , on the beachbody forums some one posted the daily amounts of carbs fats and proteins each phase accounts for. I made sure to eat properly by following that and the p90x guidlines. I was in fairly good shape starting out but the workout has vastly improved my riding. My stamina is twice what it was. I have also lost 2 inches in my waist and 7 lbs. Keep at it and push at every workout. Look at your previous workout results and try to do at least one more rep and up the weights when it gets easy. I noticed my results kicking in at week 5. Both strength and inches.

    Any 90 day updates? I am interested to hear tims thoughts on P90X and motocross. I tried P90x and didnt make it through the whole thing. What I realized was 6 days a week is too much for my schedule. What I do is break it up into 3 days only and I am able to stick to it. May take longer to get results though

    Ha ha, funny you should ask. I have been trying to get in touch with Kim recently and from what I understand she had some personal issues this summer and has stopped doing the workouts. I'm still trying to get the word on what is going on.
