It’s official, the P90X doubles routine kicked my butt two times in a row. I have been out of commission for about a month due to two shoulder injuries, on top of the flu, on top of some crazy stress from my school this semester. This is a lesson learned: don’t overdo it! I definitely piled on too much, and my immune system, nerves, and muscles all got angry at me for doing it.
I don’t think I’ll be attempting the doubles routine again for a while. Maybe next summer, or after this next round? If anybody out there has actually finished the P90X doubles routine, I would love to hear any tips! As for right now, I am moving on to P90X Plus. I have officially graduated from P90X (doubles is extra credit, not a required course!), so it’s on to the next step…and I have to get training for a potential triathlon, or a different long distance cycling project this summer, and time is ticking!
I won’t be uploading my progress from this last doubles routine, I was able to increase my total weight and reps, get down to the weight mark I was shooting for, and I have shrunk, yet again, out of my jeans, but I’m not putting up the spread sheets for this one. I’ll post progress after this round of Plus, which starts this afternoon. I’m also going to get some photos for before and after this time, promise!
So my system has recovered, I have reset my schedule, and I am restarting the program. I’ve made a promise not to overdo it, or to get all worked up about the numbers. It’s about feeling good, not having a big ego! Anyway, off to the races, people!
EDIT: almost forgot! There’s a custom made excel spreadsheet (you are welcome) for tracking P90X Plus progress! Let me know if you love or hate it!

So I have taken still a longer respite from the p90x. I have been doing a yoga here, a plus workout there. But I haven’t committed very well yet. I have been experiencing quite a bit of shoulder pain, and the plus workouts are cool, but I think I’m just going back to regular p90x for now, and will hit the plus when I haven’t taken such a long break.
The plan is now…back to the grind with p90x…I have been having a rough few months getting motivated…
