    Reintroduction P90X

    I'm 5'9", 220lbs and 32yrs old. I just finished p90x. I was 238 before I started so I lost 18lbs. When I was 25 I was 176 and shredded up. I've worked out on and off since. Up until I started bartending 3 yrs ago 200 was heavy for me, everytime I got up to that weight I would hit the gym again. 3 months ago I stepped on the scale at the doctor office at 238. I decided I needed to do something because of health concerns. I was drinking 30-40 drinks a week so I dialed that back to less than 12 over my p9Ox routine. Now I'm going to cut alcohol out all together for my second bout with P90x. I eat a ton of hardboiled eggs for snacks, fruit, chicken salad with evoo, fish and venison, no beef. My goal was to loose 40lbs in 6/mo. When I was 25 I was happy with my appearance at 176 so I'm hoping now that I'm older I can have a similar look at 185? Isn't it true that your body frame support more lbs as you mature? I'm a broad dude and it actually masks my current obesity. Anyway, the problem I'm having is that I bust ass. I'm always sore tired and beat to shit. My life is only fun on day 1-3, 4567 suck. Looking for tips to aid muscle recovery and add energy throughout my day. Thank you for read looking forward to your input. I got legs and back to get after!

    Dude, you're doing a good job; stay the course. You're lucky if you can hide your extra fat, bet you put it in your back and ass.

    Now as for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), wear it like a badge of honor and courage. You don't want any DOMS, stay on the couch with a clicker beside you, a bag of chips between your legs and a big gulp Pepsi in your hand. If this was easy, everyone would look good.

    Oh, and if some dude named Doc shows up and starts to chirp about "DOMS is not an indication of.... bla bla bla" Tell him snakey beat him to the post and you're going with him.

    You know you're always welcome to stop by. Just call ahead 5 min to avoid the bullet wounds and dog bites.

    Great job on your weight loss and recommitting to health.


    My wife bought P90X. Now it sits in our basement next to the pull up bar she doesn't use.

    Welcome and congrats on dropping the booze and picking up the iron, or rubber bands, or whatever Shaun T or whoever has you working with... I remember their ab-ripper being ridiculous.

    If something on my body isn’t sore, I feel like it was a wasted set the day before.
    I need to feel that to know I went hard enough and if you train yourself to think that way, regardless of what Doc may be leaving in your inbox about “broscience”, you will crave the soreness.

    Its a lot of calisthenics. Push ups, pull ups, lunges squats. Legs 3 days a week, which I hated at first but my legs are probably stronger than ever.. The an ripper is legit. Ive never been afraid of working hard in the gym. I don't know if its cause I let myself slide so far or that I'm older but I've never had DOMS like this. I can shake it once I get going in a workout but its rough in the morning.
