I seriously love P90x! I love being able to do so many styles of push ups and pull ups. I look back at my level of fitness 1 year ago and its amazing how far I have come along. I mean, I've always been thin - but I never had much strength or tone.
I remember doing push ups on my knees..'girl style'...and even then only being able to do maybe 10 at a time. Now I can do so many during one workout - its hard to even count that high! haha
Anyways - since my surgery, I have been a little restricted on what I can and cannot do. There are still certain exercises that my doctor advises against....push ups/pull ups/bench press. SO, that's a real detriment to P90x....it takes out a big chunk! Hopefully I'll be able to add them back in eventually - but for now, I need to follow my doctor's orders and just give my body time to heal. Until then, I'm adding in some gym time to do back workouts using lat pull down - cable row - and some of the other machines that are geared for back muscles. AND, just to keep what pectorals I do have - I have been doing sets of 20 or 'girl style' push ups. That way my body remembers the muscle movement - but I'm not putting as much strain on them.
So....Off to the gym! Hope everyone has a great day!
