Day 18: Yoga X and I am 1/5 of the way to 90 days!
Yoga is by far my favorite P90X workout. It is a bit slower than the constant cardio and resistance training. I also feel it working every muscle. If you put 100% into Yoga, you will get a great workout. I am always dripping sweat and ready for bed when I am done. It is getting much easier and is very relaxing.
Diet is the same. Still not sick of the foods yet and the cravings for soda and other foods are gone!
Congratulations to everyone who has posted comments. Many of you have just started your P90X journey. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I have so far. It is a commitment, but one that is worthwhile. Hang in there if this is your first week. It gets easier with each workout after week one.
One of my good friends is considering starting P90X. His main concern is the cost to start. It can be expensive, but after a few weeks into the program I realized the true bare minimum to get started. Here is a list of the items and prices:
P90X DVDs: $140.00
Set of Resistance Bands 10 to 50 lbs: $40.00
Yoga Mat (a basic mat will do): $25.00
Push Up Bars: $10.00
Bathroom Scale: $20.00
Body Fat Percentage Tool: $5.00
Push Up Bar: $19.00
Whey Protein: $50.00 (two months)
Recovery Drink: $50.00 (one month)
Realistically you can start P90X for about $400.00. This is a bare minimum set up, but it is a start. You can get weights and better equipment along the way. I love my Bowflex dumbbells, but they are not 100% necessary to complete the workouts.
Tip of the day: Think of P90X as an investment. $400.00 – $1000.00 is not that much money to get into the best shape of your life and stay health for the long run. In the long run, it will cost a lot more to eat like crap and ignore your health.
