Learn How To Workout With Videos

Park Bench Pushups

If you’ve ever used another website to create a new workout plan or have been given one from somebody, you know how difficult it can be to remember how to do all the different exercises.

In the past, I’ve used websites such as MensFitness.com, ShapeFit.com, and even Google Images just to find pictures of how to do certain exercises, but for some odd reason, I didn’t really think to search for “YouTube” type websites for fitness related videos.

Mashable put together a huge list of places you can go to find free workout videos, so if you’re looking to put together a routine, these are the place to check out. I put them all together here in a list for you to check out.

P90X Made Other Routines Too Easy

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here hasn’t it? Well I’ll give you an update on how things are going with me in terms of fitness.

I finished P90X way back in January and I felt great about myself. I didn’t see the massive results that the infomercials showed, but I felt stronger than I have in my entire life.

My arms were much bigger and I actually had abs again! I’ve always had knee problems too, but they were far less noticeable after building up the muscle in my legs. Here’s a picture of me about 5 months after completing the program.

I have to admit that I didn’t follow the program to a “t” either though, so that might’ve helped me see greater results. I only stuck to the meal plan for the first month and I took one month off to do another routine after the second month, because I was getting kinda tired of the videos.

After completing the last 30 days of the program, I took a couple weeks off to give myself a break and then I started doing some routines from my Men’s Fitness magazines.

This is when I really started to realize how much stronger I had become.

I’ve done a lot of routines before starting P90X and they were always tough, but after P90X, they felt way too easy. I actually had to take my new routines and speed them just like how P90X works. No breaks in between each exercise.

It worked, but I just didn’t feel like it was working as much. This ended up making me not feel like working out as much anymore and I started to get lazy. I worked out here and there for the next few months, but definitely not regularly.

So I’ve decided to go through the P90X program once again. I actually did the Chest, Arms, and Triceps video this morning and I have to admit that my arms feel like noodles. I could barely lift my arms up to wash my hair this morning.

This feeling has me pumped!

I can’t wait to get started on the routine again. I can’t afford to stick to the meal plan, but I eat healthy anyway, so I should be ok.

Until next time!
