Ok...I'm a workout skip/advance junkie SO \:D

I took a look at Gamma today...I'll be doing speed 3.0 tomorrow! Did P90X shoulders and arms this afternoon - ran at lunch for 30 minutes.

The final or Gamma series of T25 has what appears to be a lot of resistance focus so I'll be working those in soon as well....maybe light weight and high reps...then lower reps but heavier weight on P90X resistance days.

This new layout is really making me look forward to working out - was REALLY losing muscle tone and missing the resistance days..

T25 in general.. In P90X cardio is a part of the resistance based workouts - however not as intense a cardio workout as T25 so while I've been losing some weight and getting in better shape - muscle tone was also diminishing greatly which is VERY normal at over 50, especially when the exercise you get is not resistance based.

Again though, as I reviewed the GAMMA series yesterday it reads like ALL the workouts are heavy in resistance except Speed 3.0 which makes sense. They tear down our fat-house with 12 weeks of alpha/beta then build up the New-house with Gamma \:\)

I'd better clarify by saying P90X to build muscle and T25 for raw cardio.

I lost 35-40 lbs doing P90X before and put on some solid muscle tone - while being on a VERY low calorie diet..

At the end of the day, especially at my age, cardio is of the utmost importance - priority #1. So with that in mind I'll be arranging my workout schedule with that in mind.

One of the reasons I was SO successful in P90X before is because I was RELENTLESS in working out! I was working out 7 days a week with at least 3 days a week of 2@day workouts. VERY fortunate I didn't sustain injury with that regiment at my age however, I felt the best I've felt physically and mentally in my life at 49 yrs old! I was actually doing the cardio on the 2@days - so most often in my week I was doing shoulders and arms twice and/or back/chest twice. At 49 I could chug out 18-20 full motion chin ups starting from 0 a few years before \:\) In my P90X workouts I was doing way over 100 chin-ups a session! Now I'm STRAINING to do 3 a set \:D BUT I jump over and hit the lat pull-down machine and finish my sets now so I plan to be back above 10 per set before long.

My advice... Go thru the T25 in its entirety then maybe think about what your preventive maintenance plan for life will be.. Maybe pickup P90X - work thru it, then devise a plan from either or both that works for you. Just remember, these "plans" can be a stepping stone to a new life journey OR just a short stop in the road where we work hard to get fit only to stop eating right and working out then reverting back to our previously unhealthy selves
