Obviously, i can't fully commit to the p90x schedule because it involves working out 6 days a week, and i can't do that AND keep up with marathon training (and my job, and my life). But, i am going to try to do it a couple times a week, and hey - how bad can it be, right?
OMFG, IT'S SO HARD!!!!!!
Seriously, let's casually do 30 push-ups in a minute? followed by 30 more in an even harder positing? And then lets do it with our feet on chair? IN WHAT WORLD, P90X?????
|We played the dvd on a laptop, because we are SO classy.|
And then, when your body is about to break, lets do the whole damn thing ONE MORE TIME!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, i knocked out about 5 solid push-ups, and spent the rest of the time on the floor in the fetal position, whimpering, and rolling around because my noodle arms no longer functioned enough to pick myself up.
I can't even explain how bad it had to be for me to be laying on that disgusting carpeted floor. I snapped this photo, but i was actually trying to dial 9-1-1.
I woke up this morning and i felt like I was in some kind of horrific accident. And i am fairly certain i bruised a rib. How does one bruise a rib during an arm work out, you ask? Probably by rolling around on the floor crying like a giant baby.
Needless to say, this crap is really, really hard. But, the fact that i ran four marathons last year and can't do 5 push-ups kind of makes me look like a jack-ass, and i am committed to changing that. Some day, 10 push-ups, SOME DAY!!!
In all seriousness though, it's fun to do with other people around. I would have some serious motivation issues if i was trying to do this all by myself. The video is cheesy, and laughing about it with your friends makes this torture video almost enjoyable.
