Billy, this one's for you!
Billy! To answer your question, I did great with my P90x. At the time it was very challenging for me...dedicating the two+ hours of workouts six days a week with the super strict diet. I continued with it for just over 30 days, right in time for E3. I only lost 6 pounds, but felt like my muscles were trimming up. When we got back from E3, I started the new love of my life, Krav Maga. It is an Israeli fighting system, street self defense. I LOVE IT! I go every day (well six days a week). I've been training for about three months now, and am in the best shape of my life! In the Krav studio, I take the Krav Maga class, but also go to their bag classes and core classes as well. In bag class, my right/crosses are getting stronger and my cardio endurance is getting better. In Krav we learn things like how to diffuse a fight, how to get out of choke holds of all kinds, how to disarm an attacker with a weapon, and how to defend attacks of all other kinds. With my background, some of it is a little intimidating for me, but also very empowering. I love my new strength and confidence in all areas of my life. In a couple more months, when my two-pack grows into an actual six-pack, I'll have to post a picture for you! My guns are buff! We probably do 50 or so push ups every class during warm ups. I'm getting better every day. If i ever had the patience to go back to P90x, it would be so slow and simple for me now...Krav kicks my butt! XOXO -Naun
