    Anyways, I felt amazing this workout. I actually pumped out 40 pushups and I was excited when I did haha. It was such a great feeling to know I did a couple more reps then last week. And it helped me push myself more when I looked back at last weeks chest and back workout because I just pushed myself more.

    Overall i am very happy and I can't wait for next week!
    Great job. Making it a competition, even if it's with your own numbers, is a great way to improve. I had a bet going with a friend at AIT about who could do the most pushups every week and by the time we graduated we could both do 80 in 2 minutes. Having the extra drive of something or someone to beat can make the training more fun and more rewarding.

    Just finished core synergistic. Felt so worn out doing it haha. Feel like I lost more energy when I flexed the core but that's the whole objective I'm guessing haha.

    Overall I am progressing and I did figure out I weigh 221.8 today so that make me really happy. Three more workouts tell I'm completely done with my first month. I really can't wait tell the beginning of the second month because thats the month I push myself to the limit. Especially because it's summertime now so I have no excuse for doing projects or homework in school haha.

    I haven't reported back in a couple of days but that is because family came over
    But today is the beginning of my second month of p90x and I am ready to do p90x doubles.
    It's basically the classic p90x schedule but with Cardio X in the morning. What inspired me to do this is that I was watching a movie called "Troy." they all trained so hard to become one of the greatest warriors and live another day after just winning a battle. I'm thinking of myself as a Spartan training hard for war. Just felt like sharing that with everyone haha

    That's the perfect mindset to have, where the mind goes the body will follow. I have a whole collection of movies like that that motivate me. I watch one every couple days. A friend of mine did one of those "body transformation" challenges once and watched 300 nearly every day, and on the last day he came running into his house dressed up as King Leonidas. I thought his wife was gonna pee her pants she was laughing so hard but it was a great way to show everyone he reached his goals. He still has a picture from that night hanging in his home gym.

About to do some Ab Ripper X. Going to kill me but it'll be fine haha. Thanks for the extra motivation, much appreciate

    IMPORTANT ------ IMPORTANT

    I relies that maybe some of you guys are sure what the following letters represent when I put it in my work journal

    EXAMPLE -
    15/15 (R)/(G)/(B)

    The letters represent the color of the bands I use. Red, Green, Black. I tried looking for how much weight each band represent but I could not find it. But I do know which one is the lightest and which one is the heaviest

    From light to heavy -
    Red, Green, black

    I also want to explain what this is -----> 15/16
    Some workouts require you to alternate arms. So what I did is I went from left to right. So if I did 15/16, I would of done 15 with the left arm and 16 with the right arm. Basically reading to from left to right

    In addition to that, I add this sometimes ----> 15/15 (R) : 15/15 (R)
    Sometimes within the DVD you'll do three moves, then repeat those three moves again. So what I did is that I put the ":" to represent that the right numbers as my second attempt on the first move. If that confused you a little please reply to this comment.

    EXAMPLE -

    15/15 (G) : 15/15. (G)
    First Move Band Color Second Attempt Second Move Band Color
    Of The Move

    So itll look like this -

    15/15 (G) : 15:15 (G)
