P90X Round 2 Day 85: Yoga X and Final Pictures

I know I should wait until day 90 but with a few cardio days things aren't going to change much.

So, go ahead and click here to see my photos. I did Day 0/Day 90/Day 180.

Overall, I am very pleased with the results. My major gains from Day 90 to now were made in my waist. Actually on Day 1 my waist was a 36 and I weighed 182 lbs. Today my waist is a 32/31 and I weigh 157 lbs. It is hard to tell in the photos but my shoulders, lats, tricpes and biceps are also much more defined than after my first round. I attribute this mainly to using dumbbells during round 2 and resistance bands during round 1. I also lost a lot of weight in my face which you can clearly see in the pics!

I'll write up a complete review of Round 2 in a few days but let me know what you think!


Today I did the scheduled Yoga Day. It was hard because the weather was 75 degrees and sunny and I really wanted to go for a bike ride, but I sucked it up and did Yoga. I am planning on doing Yoga during my Triathlon Training but I may have to reconsider. Yoga really works your legs very hard and today was no exception. Every time I finish Yoga my body always feels a little whipped and today I finally figured out what that exact feeling is: Have you ever been hit from behind in your car a a fairly low speed? You know how when it initially happens you feel fine but when you wake up the next morning your whole body feels weird and just sort of off? Well, that is how I feel after I do Yoga. Just a little off ... but unlike the fender bender it is a good feeling!

Tomorrow I am going to give swimming another shot - eyes slightly up, shoulders straight, cup hands, kick legs .... I got it all figured out! If I am not too exhausted I might do Core Synergistics also!

Thanks for Reading,

Jeff

  5. Thanks guys -- Still got some work to do in the midsection!

    Nick - 5'9", and my BF% is between 12-14% (Calipers -12%; Digital BF% Scale -13.8%). I didn't take BF% on day 1 but I am guessing it was in the low 20's.
