At some point during one of the P90X workouts, fitness guru Tony Horton extolls the virtues of avoiding workout boredom with the age-old adage, “variety is the spice of life.” And he speaks the truth.
I recently downloaded the P90X companion application for iPad/iPhone. It allows you to track your nutrition, workouts and overall progress.
The app also lets you follow the workouts without the videos. I like that a lot. With the app on the go, I can modify the workouts a bit. In fact, I’ve found that capability has given my workouts a much-needed boost.
After nearly 2 months of P90X, I’ve seen a lot of improvements; particularly my arm strength (triceps are really growing).
Since taking the workouts to the gym (sans Yoga X and Plyometrics), my results have really impressed me.
This might apply to you as well. Maybe your workouts and progress have plateaued. If you are comfortable with experimenting, don’t be afraid to change things up a bit. Discover what works, and press with that.
If you are new to weight training, running, or whatever, read as much as you can on the subject. Experiment a little, but do it safely!
Until next time…
