Day 1 – P90X – Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X

This morning I hauled myself out of bed and set up everything I needed to begin P90X. While my numbers were embarrassingly low (I am apparently way more out of shape than I thought) I kept going and made it through the Chest & Back video, and Ab Ripper X.

You know it was a good workout when you go to soap up your armpit in the shower and it requires extra effort because you can’t reach your armput anymore… or when you reach for the seatbelt to buckle up, and have to twist your whole body just to grab it…

Here are my before shots as prescribed by the fitness plan. December 2, 2012. My P90X journey ends on March 3, 2013.
