I re-took the P90X fit test on Monday night and below are the results. I’ve definitely made some great improvements since the start of the P90X workout! I can honestly say now that I’m truly in the best shape of my life!
The improvements in my weak areas is the thing I’m most proud of. I always have been extremely inflexible, I’ve never had a high amount of endurance, and my legs have been a weak area for me. After 90 days of the P90X program, I can now touch my toes (which I have never been able to do), I can do high intensity cardio for more than just 5 to 10 seconds without passing out :-), and I actually have a good amount of strength in my legs. I remember when I did the fit test before the start of P90X, and the 2 minute heart rate maximizer felt like an eternity! I felt like I was going to pass out and die from breathing so hard within the first 30 seconds or so!
Also, I’ve always dreaded doing any type of sit and reach or toe touch! Prior to P90X, I could only touch my shins or about 4 inches from my toes! The daily stretching in P90X has clearly increased my flexibility. Lastly, I was able to almost double the number of Pull-Ups and Push Ups that I was able to do!
I can’t wait to “bring it” during round 2 of P90X! :-)
