The Return Of The Gym Rat…
It’s time for a rebirth. Time to reinvest in myself and to take what Tony taught me back into the gym.
Today is going to be Day 1 of G90X. My gym infused version of P90X. Since I have a gym membership and my psyche still requires that public exposure as mild motivation I will be taking my P90X workout to the gym. I haven’t worked out the whole program yet, I have a 5 day rotation with which to work and I am going to be doing the Cardio, Kenpo, Plyo and Yoga components of P90X mixed into the newly revamped gym workout.
All I know right now is that if I take Chest and Back to the gym I will have 3 or 4 days to figure out Shoulders and Arms. If I don’t go until I figure it out, I will stay home and watch TV eating bonbons…
So here goes, this is the plan which will probably change once I have a chance to go through it once or twice. I’ll be keeping an excel spreadsheet to record my reps and weights which I will scan later.
6 Day Rotation with rest as required (but with 2 days off a week, rest should not be an issue.
Day 1 – Chest and Back
Day 2 – Plyo with Tony
Day 3 – Shoulders and Arms
Day 4 – Yoga
Day 5 – Legs and Back
Day 6 – Kenpo or Cardio or Core Syn
I am not sure I will be incorporating a rest week or not. I will see how I feel after the first 3 weeks.

I’m planning on restarting P90X and your blog is a total inspiration for me. But where are your results pictures?! The previous post only showed sections, and with no comparison shots. You are a great writer, but i can’t help but feel a little disappointed.
Anyway, you are an inspiration, and I’m going to restart p90x today. I was seeing results last time (especially with my asthma), but I stopped! I don’t even remember why anymore!
Thanks for this motivational blog!
Thanks for reading, I appreciate the feedback. I have been shy in posting my progress pics only because of my backward slide. However, I will try to get some progress pics up soon so you can see (and I can be accountable) and that way we can all be happy. Hopefully you won’t follow my lead and make sure you do the fit test, take measurements and take pictures as you progress. I know I am always mad that I didn’t. This time, however, I did the fit test and will commit to the pictures. Stay tuned!
