Tony is always talking about "bringing it." What does that mean, exactly?
Well, to me it means maxing your reps and weight so you "burn out" your muscles at 8-10 reps. That's the only way you'll see real results, quickly. The key is intensity on every move. Pushing yourself to the edge, but not going over it.
If you go light/wimpy, you may see weight loss, but not muscle gain. And putting on lean muscle means you'll burn more calories before, during, and after (after = key!) your workouts. Day and night, that muscle needs food. And it will shred your lumpy fat cells first, so long as you're eating the right amount and type of calories during the day.
You are eating 5-6 times a day, in small meals, right? ;)
Hat is off to Jim, a former colleague from WGAL in Lancaster, who's on Day 3 of P90X. Us old guys need to stick together, bring it everyday, and rock the program! Get your P90X DVD workouts and diet guide, then add on Shakeology shakes to max your nutrition. I've got you covered.
