Ryan's P90X results Day 6

Another Shoulder and Arms workout with P90X. What an extreme workout! Love the Side Tri-Rises and Chair dips. Love to feel the burn in my arms. I’ve attached a day 6 photo and will continue to post updated photos along the way. Here are some other stats for the past week of working out.

I have gone from 140 pounds to 144 since September 1.

I went from 10.2% total body fat to 9.6% since September 1.

My energy level is getting better throughout the day and actually have the stamina and energy to go running with my dog.

P90X is for real! I’m not getting paid to tell you this, but I have never found a workout routine that can whip you into this kind of shape. I honestly feel every muscle in my body working to the extreme, and they love every minute of it!

Granted the workouts can be intimidating for those who are not used to such an intense workout, or even those who just weren’t expecting something so extreme! But stick with it and you will see the results you want and you will love the way you look. I know I know I should get through the first 90 days before I endorse the product right? Maybe so but like I said in just a week I feel results already. I just can’t wait to wake up tomorrow and P90X all over again!


Classes begin.

Another semester is here. New classes, new learning experiences. Whatever.

Just another semester or two and I will be done here in Gainesville (thank god).

I know you have to be sick of my Gainesville bashing, but it’s true. This place really does suck. Everyone seems to be superficial and is so intertwined in their own little world they can’t see outside their bubble. It’s a shame because there is so much life bustling about , yet I feel like I am alone when I walk these streets.

I’m just a few blocks away from Ben Hill Griffin stadium, I should be going to a few games so that should be fun. I live one street over from sorority row, so I guess that I really can’t complain that much. I digress.

Football season is rapidly approaching. It’s looking a little worrisome for my New York Giants who seem to be struggling to find their identity since the departure of Michael Strahan. And then there was Tiki Barber’s sudden bombastic announcement mid-season of his wish to retire to enter the exciting world of sports  broadcasting. Ooh La La. The team hasn’t been the same since. We do have a new defensive coordinator that looks promising, Perry Fewell could be the longterm man for the job. We’ll see Monday October 25th in Dallas when the G-Men take on the Cowgirls. If we can hang with Dallas’s Defensive line and make plays then we can play with the best teams in the league.

So I’m taking International Relations, Introduction to Humanities, Integrated Algebra, and Fundamentals of Speech. Going to be busy the next few months. Work with me here!

Yoga X time!
