The other day I was walking through Bed Bath And Beyond with my girlfriend looking for a present for my friends, wives wedding shower. One of the things on the gift registry was a scale. We took a look at all of the different types of scales they had. They had the normal everyday ones, the ones that look like tile, and the digital one that my friend wrote down that he wanted. I took a look at it and thought it looked pretty cool. It had a clear surface and just the digital screen to tell you how much you weighed. Curiosity got the best of me and I wondered how long it has been since I stood on a scale. So I stood on the only working model that was there and it said 185. I paused for a couple seconds and was like “185,” really? I asked my girlfriend if I was fat or something because I have never weighed 185. The last time I checked I was at 175 pounds. My girlfriend told me she was not going to say anything because she thought I might let it get to my head that I am much stronger and look more cut up when I take my shirt off.
I had known all along that I was getting stronger just from the results I was getting from each P90X workout. I can feel the results in a lot of my activities such as softball and golf. I am able to hit the ball much farther in both activities and just feel like my performance in both is much better. I still do P90X about 3 days a week now while in my off days I started swimmingmore. The swimming has really tied all of the workouts together for me and been able to help me do more pull ups and chin ups when I do P90X. I think from here I am going to start doing more cardio workouts for awhile instead of trying to put on more muscle. I really have no need to keep getting bulky and let my quickness go to the wayside. Even though I feel stronger I can tell that I am carrying more weight around and want to be able to get used to this weight while still having good cardio and strength. I still highly suggest that if you are serious in getting in great shape that you try doing P90X. It has shown me a new way to think about fitness.
