Since the 2 years of writing to this blog I have had a number of guys contact me saying that P90X is weak and a bunch of other nonsense. It might because my P90X results don’t show a guy who can bench press 200 pounds or squat a ton of shit. Well, I don’t do either of those workouts so of course I’m not going to look that way. Another thing is that my pain threshold is not as high as the dudes who do those workouts. That does not mean that P90X is weak by any means. Its all about you.
Well yesterday I think I probably had the best comment ever left on this post. Here is what the guy said. (This is him in the photo bench pressing.)
“thanks, Just a note. My beautiful girlfriend and I started p90x yesterday WOW, I am a competitive powerlifter 5′10 235lbs. I bench 430 lbs. deadlift 640lbs. also I have a 36″ waist I’m not one of those potbelied power guys, and after the workout yesterday not only was I sweating like a motherf#@$%^ but I puked, rather explosively. This program rules.”
I laughed my ass off when I read that. I think the last time I puked “explosively” did not involve working out but only involved drinking too much back in college.
What this should show everybody is that P90X is not all about lifting tons of weight to put on as much muscle mass as possible. This is about getting into shape. Here is a guy who is two, maybe three times as strong as me saying he’s getting his butt kicked with the P90X Chest and Back workout.
Richie has definitely set the bar. Anything less than explosive puke while working out with P90X is considered failure.
