Getting X'ed out and Weight Lifting Mix, Workout Video Log
P90X and Weight Training Combo
Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the transformation log! Well crossing my fingers that it will be.
Lets begin shall we?
Everyone knows about P90X is or atleast has seen a commercial for it. Your first annicial thought is that "wow here is another stupid workout sales thing..." But i have done some research, also had a few friends try it out, had some signifficant results. Sooooo.... here I go!
P90X mainly focuses on loosing weight. But, they do have information on other workouts for different goals which is cool to see and smart on there part.
Here is a link to the P90X website.
A Little about meI have been lifting heavy weight since I was 15. I Love nutrition and body science. I was diagnosed with Crohnes disease since 2002. It has prevented me from getting big. I have gained muscle over and over again. So I might only be 165 now but it still has come with alot of knowledge and alot of experience. So dont think im a noobie. I have done one competition when in the teen devision but have not been ever able to get that body back since my Crohnes has never been the same. Im explaining this to just let yall know cause through out this log you never know what might happen.....
The PlanI work on tug boats, yes like the movie benjamin bunton, and I work one week on one week off. My plan is going to be p90x on my 'off' week and on my 'on' week ill be weight training.
Week 'on'(Week ill be at work)
This week will be three gym days. Chest back and legs, will be the parts, and the lifts will be mostly compound movements. Deadlifts, Squats, etc.
Week 'off'(Week ill be off from work)
Mon: Chest and Back
Wend: Shoulders and Arms
Thurs: Legs and Core
Sat: Upper Body
Sun: Rest and Stretch
This is just an example.
Diet and Supplements
My Diet will consist of 6 meals of 3000 to 3500 calories. It will also consist of alot of fat mainly because of how much i beleive in omega fats. My Diet is very very clean most of the time. Ill post some vids or pics of my meals I cook. I dont eat with alot sodium. Alot of seasoning though! I also cook at work for my crew so maybe ill take some pics of what those meals look like. Ill show off some cooking skills.
Supplements are basic. Protein= Nutrapro. Bcaa=Xtend. Sleeping and recovery aid=Bullet Proof. Natural Anabolic=Pslin. Chia=Chia Pro by CMI. Probiotic=Align, anything I can get at walmart really. Multivitamin=Thymic Formula.
I will be trying this video log thing. Ill post one up soon on my first week of yoga. I decided to do just yoga for the first week to get my body warmed up. Since i messed up my back about a month ago handling lines to tie up boats and ships and what not. But it seems to be getting better and im going to be watching it while im working out hopefully it will not get messed up...... crossing my fingers!
So lets bring the noise!

This is an interesting combo. Thought about trying out p90x as well but would not fair well with any weight loss. Like you I have had some friends get some good results from it but they were mostly endos and had plenty of fat to shred. Subbed and interested to see how it works out.

Good idea avoiding some of the cardio, obviously this program was created to shred fat and just show people whats hiding underneath, while building a little muscle. But I don't see why tweaking it to make it geared to your goals wouldn't work. I have been interested in trying yoga or the yoga section of p90x just because my flexibility is awful. Also knowing how much stretching helps your lifts makes me want to try it out.
The whole "muscle confusion" or whatever they call it that the prog is based on is a pretty solid principle that almost all bodybuilders/people on AM follow. Switching things up often and giving the body some variety builds muscle. When are you starting this up man?
06-26-2010, 07:21 PM
Yeah Im doing the insanity workouts by beachbody. Thinking of throwing in some p90x lifting, so I dont lose too much muscle with the ******* amount of cardio ive been doing
06-27-2010, 10:11 AM
06-27-2010, 10:22 AM
But i exactly agree on the muscle confusion that bodybuilders/etc. use this kind of working out all the time. So i knew this would prob be a good idea. Just not so much cardio. in theory it looks good. So lets test the theory!
06-27-2010, 10:23 AM
Yeah. Big time weight lose. Thats my over all goal. Made a bet one MrKleens log
Personal Challenge Success or Posting Pic and vid of myself in a tutu
So I got alot of weight to lose. Big dilema for me though. I need to lose WEIGHT! But im kinda sad for the loss of any muscle. But If I try and keep my muscle my might not hit my 220 mark. AHHHH. Decisions, decisions. I also just found a P90x/Insanity Hybrid workout schedule I was thinking about either doing after the insanity or say Eff it and just atart it now to keep my muscle. I just read where a guy was doing P90x and was doing(PR)88 pullups and he did the 2 months of insanity and his max pullups were down to 43 at the end!!!YIKES!!!

Well i worked out chest monday. since this is my week on at work. good work out. Did some smith, db bench press, and cables. Noticed my strength is down since i had not worked out in a month er so. But it was good work out. Real sore now lol. But i will be going to work out this thurs or friday depending on whether or not work will let me. I tried to go last night but jobs again prevented me from going.... i was too tired to go when i could which was about 0500. I could barely hold my eyes open at that point.... but hopefully it will slow down so i can get some pumping in.
07-01-2010, 02:22 AM
Smith decline bench i was able to place two 45's for 15 reps.
Dumbell bench press i was able to get 60's for 3 sets on 6-8 reps. Kinda sad actually lol.
Cable cross overs 40lbs 3 sets of 8
Also jumped on some machine bench and repped 6-8 reps of three sets.
Just warming up with all of this. I know its taking a while on getting this going sorry guys..
But it takes a while to get a fire going if you know what i mean

As for the creatine in it, why would you not want it? I know you aren't currently taking any creatine but it won't hurt anything, and if you are cycling it and in an off stage I have read there is only around 1.2g of creatine per scoop, and you don't take it every day, so it wouldn't be counterproductive. Why aren't you supplementing with creatine anyway?
Your lifts are a little low now but like you said it takes time to get things moving, after some time off you gotta get your body readjusted to the lifts and get your form down again. I am sure in a few weeks your numbers will start to shoot back up to where they were before, then the only place to go is up!
07-01-2010, 02:48 AM
Yeah i know man it sucks when your lifting suffers..... It really gets to yah mentally.... But once i get my lifts back up there it will be b@lls to the wall! Cant wait! its been a while buddy!
But to recap on the jacked.... The creatine is pretty low for a serving 1.2 might not upset my stumach..... hmmmmm. The only thing that would weine me away from it would be the not eating thing.... I guess it is pretty cheap to try out and if i dont like it im sure i can get a friend to take it lol.... I do have some superpump but wow that stuff should be called butt drip shake!

Something i have noticed fellas. Lately i have been taking my pslin. And recently i have been sooooo hungry all the time! i think this pslin is making me so dang hungry! what yall think? this is the first time i have taken this stuff. And this is awsome! lol i love being hungry all the time!
07-04-2010, 01:32 AM
Almost done with my weight training week. Have finished all the bodyparts. Good workouts all kept them at a low rep and high weight. Feeling really good! Cant wait to start the p90x! im more excited about that then weight training! lol. weird! But will be posting a video soon. Back has not been hurting at all so im excited. The yoga must have really helped my back. Ill also be posting up what my p90x routine will be looking like soon.

Week 2 and 3
Just finished working out on third week of p90x.
3rd week was great
Monday:upper body and Core
Thurs: Cardio and upper body
Sunday: upper body
If your not familiar with p90x. The cds upper body workouts are in groups. chest and back cd shoulders and arms cd and chest and shoulders cd back and shoulders cd. etc. etc. The works outs are very vigorous. Once again for the first time i was not able to finish some of the cds. Took me a while. too get used too. STILL not completely used to it.
The upper body workouts are intense! i never did so many pushups and pullups in my life! i was sooo sore the next day! But its a really addicting workout. Loving this stuff!
Pslin is doing its job at helping me eat more. Im hungry all the time. Still not tired of the bcaas drinking the stuff like crazy!
Push ups in sets started at twenty but dwindled down to 10. Pullups at 20 to 8. lol so my next goal is to get higher. and back up to what i used to be able to do. Pushups i used to be able to go all day... oh well. Ill get it back though. Ill see what my weight is when i go to the gym this week coming up. i think im at around 165 im might be wrong.... We will see.
Sorry about not posting a vid fellas.... My camera is acting up but ill have it fixed next week...... promise! Ight!
07-11-2010, 05:24 PM
P90 is SOOOOOOO addidcting. I love it dude. Starting next week things get freeky for me. I need to start taking 3 full days off in a row. Work and Night oupatient. SO going to have to mix things up again.
07-12-2010, 07:02 PM
Im adding some pct to my supplements. Just because i feel like my blood pressure is high and i kinda like to use pain pills for fun..... so i wanna get my liver back to normal... So im dont with the pain pills. I went to run this morning and noticed how my heart rate jumped up real quick... kinda pathetic.
07-17-2010, 05:16 PM
Good week so far have been able to do arms chest and back! shoulders is coming up tonight. Had a panic and lost my wallet so i was not able to go to the gym one night!! yikes! but found it the next day and was able to do back last night. But cant wait to start p90x this week coming up!!! woot woot! its more exciteing than weight training.... kinda scary! lol
07-17-2010, 05:18 PM

Its funny Ive been away from the gym sooo long that I kinda want to hold off on the P90 and just HIT IT HARD at the gym. Looking good though bro. Keep pushing and youll be doing so many pushups, youll get your numbers back
07-18-2010, 02:33 PM
i'm very interested in this thread. i've done the full 90 days of p90x before and lost all fat. i actually lost 2.3 lbs of lean mass as well, but i was really restricting my calories to shed the fat. pry too much. i got my bodyfat done each 30 days, and the first month, i lost 14.8 lbs of fat, and 0.9 lbs of muscle. the next month sucked, because i guess my body was shocked. i lost 1.4 lbs of fat, and 2 lbs of muscle. the final month, i upped my calories a smige, and ganined back .6 lbs of muscle and lost another 6.3 lbs of fat. so i loved the 90 days, but was wanting to figure out a way to add some muscle during it so i hope this works great for you, and i'll pry try something very similar. "ab ripper x, i hate it, but i love it"........ too true.
