Results from one year of P90X

I am finally posting my progress picture from P90X! I have come a long way the past year when I started P90X on December 1, 2008. I have religiously done P90X since then and never plan on stopping! I love how I feel from working at and what it does for my body.

Summer 2008- Here is how I looked the summer before I started P90X. I was fit and had a strong core, but not much muscle mass. I could do 50 push ups and weighed around 112 pounds. This is also probably the lowest body fat I have ever had in this picture as well, I'm guessing around 5%.

Fall 2008- This is about a month before I started P90X. I'm running a cross country race, and due to cross country I think I lost some upper body mass from all the running.

Day 30 Pictures- From 30 days of P90X I didn't gain much muscle, but I got more definition, especially in my back which I have never had until now. My abs are also starting to pop more. I could do 40 push ups and 8 pull ups.

Round 2 Day 75- I did not take pictures for a while. These are from May 2009. I have gotten stronger, but still only weigh around 116 pounds here. My abs have gotten stronger as well. I could do 14 pull ups and 40 push ups.

Summer 2009- I am at the beach with my two brothers, Garret and Chad (Youngest). Garret plays quarterback and is a beast. He weighs as much as me, and is two years younger and 4 inches shorter than me, lol. However he has a football body and I have a runner body, so I don't worry about it.

Fall 2009- Here are some cross country pictures from this past season. You can definitely notice the difference in my build from the past year of cross country. I finally gained weight over the summer and weigh 125 pounds. My chest, arms and legs have more mass, and my body fat has remained the same.

Last one was before the race, check out that bicep!

December 24th, 2009- Finally took current transformation pictures. I weigh 127 pounds, can currently do 16 pull ups and 40 push ups, and can curl 30 pound dumbbells for 8 reps, and when I first started think I could barley curl 8 reps with 20 pound weights. I'm not quite as lean as I used to be, but I'm still under 10% and I'm a lot stronger.

Anyone can achieve great results from their workout program. If you want great results though, you have to stick with your program and workout 5-7 days a week, and stick to your diet. You also need to push yourself during your workouts and try to out due what you did the previous time. This is how you make improvements and see results in your strength and endurance. It is also important to stay motivated! Get a workout partner or someone who will encourage you through your fitness journey and help you stick to your diet. I am also always here for encouragement, motivation, or any fitness questions! Remember, fitness is not a 90 day ordeal, it is a lifestyle.
