P90X2. Is. Done.

Things were sort of turned upside down recently due to a medical issue that popped up with my wife so I wasn’t able to get this out sooner. So, I’m happy to finally let you know that P90X2 round 1 is OFFICIALLY DONE!

I ended up finishing my first ever round of P90X2 last Thursday. On that last day of P90X2, I ended up doing TWO workouts that day (P.A.P. Upper, and P.A.P. Lower) since my wife was having surgery on Friday. She thought I was crazy for doing that, but I was determined to do whatever I had to do to get that last workout in.

So what kind of results did I see? Was OPERATION X2 HULK a success or failure? Well, you’re just going to have to keep reading to find out!Continue reading
