Okay, final stats post Ultimate Reset:

Weight: -5lbs
Waist: -1.5"
Hips: -1.5"
Thigh: -1"

Just started P90X2 last night, it's awesome! :D

Got back from the Beachbody coach gathering in Vegas very early Monday morning. I had the chance to work out live with Tony Horton, Dr Mark Cheng, Shaun T, and Leandro Carvalho. It kicked ASS. I got to fist bump Tony Horton, woooo! He's a great guy, very nice and very funny.

Received my P90X certified dog tags and clothing, eagerly awaiting my certificate. That puppy's getting framed, just gotta figure out where to hang it. :D

Went back and looked at my first entries. It's nice to see how far I've come since. :)

Oh, almost forgot...finally got my second 25lb dumbbell, now I just need a pair of 30s. Beginning to realize now why people invest in SelectTechs as expensive as they are. :P

Yesterday I did Plyocide. I keep getting asked if the workout is tough as the workout sounds, and the answer is both yes and no. I'm finding that I'm far more capable of doing the exercises than I thought, but there are still in each of the P90X2 workouts some "reach" workouts where I don't think you're expected to be able to do them perfectly off the bat. I had to do very few modifications for the Plyocide, mainly due to necessity. I need more interlocking floor mats on my basement floor, it'll help with stability. Hard to do combo plyo-balance moves when things keep slipping under your feet. :-/ Great way to get injured, actually.

I'm also thinking of picking up Tai Cheng because I think it'll help with my knee. It's starting to get a bit "crunchy" again and I'm worried that the lovely tendonitis I had in it is returning. I iced it after the workout and thinking that strengthening the muscles around it would be a good idea. I was under doctor's orders last time to get some running in, and that shouldn't be too challenging...hopefully. Main issue with doubling up on workouts is always time, never ability. At least, not with me.

X2 Recovery and Mobility last night, and I can say nothing but glowing things about this workout. The foam roller is pure brilliance. My shoulders are perpetually sore and tight, can we say "software engineer"? Knew you could...anyhow, I paused and spent a good extra half an hour on those alone, and plan to spend some additional time on the legs too. Seriously, if you're not pausing during that workout to spend LOTS of time with that foam roller, you're not doing it right.

What surprised me was Tony demonstrating that when you do the same exercises afterward how much better your balance was after the foam roller! I never would've thought that something like massaging muscles through the roller would aid with something like balance, I learn something new every day.

Tonight is X2 Total Body, we'll see what P90X2 brings to the table then!

Foam rolling is awesome, can't speak highly enough of them.

My shoulders are hell. Pure. Hell. So foam rolling is, as far as I'm concerned, a miracle I wish I had discovered sooner!!

I've been slack lately using mine, switching up my lifting days on my new cycle...should allow for more mobility work.

I honestly wish I had known about it before I developed my knee issue. Patellar tendonitis sucks. :(

Anything knee relate is horrible. I can't kneel down & lean forward on my left knee, it's like a fire under the patella...but it never hurts, I squat ect.

Right now I'm getting my lower back looked at, possible bulging disc (not lifting related).
Hope you mange to fix your knee

X2 Total Body...wow. Holy hell.

Four words: Pushups. On. Medicine. Balls.

That is all. I'm going to go collapse now.
