I'm still doing powerlifting, but the Rippetoe diet of eating any and everything in sight has caught up with me recently. Especially since I've been doing the 5-3-1 without much assistance work due to my schedule. The 5-3-1 fits great into my schedule, but lately I haven't had time for the Boring but Big or anything else really. I've ballooned up to 207lbs, which for me is a lot since I was 176lbs a few months ago. I was able to keep the weight off easier when I was lifting a lot more but now I'm starting to get winded easier and just feel all around sluggish. If I was 207lbs with more muscle it might not be a problem, but the fat-muscle ratio is definitely starting to lean back to the fat side again. I want to lean out some of the fat so I can be healthier, more efficient at work, and so I actually look decent without a shirt again. Well this week was my de-load week from 5-3-1 (unfortunately it was also one of the few times I've had the time to do some assistance work. Damn the luck) so I decided I'd try the P90X with my wife. I figured doing body weight work wouldn't affect my de-load much. I have to say that it is kicking my ass. I've ignored my conditioning and cardio for too long and it is showing badly. I'll only be able to do it about 2 times a week due to my schedule( I guess I'm on the P270X plan) and the fact that P90X takes at least an hour, but after only a few workouts I think this will really help fill in some of the holes in my conditioning. It's not really my type of workout but it is hard, gets me sweating, and works some muscles that I hadn't worked in a while. I'm thinking of doing it 2 days a week on my off days from 5-3-1, like every Wednesday and Saturday. My wife has also started cooking based in the P90X diet guide and it's good. I am trying to eat several smaller meals throughout the day to hopefully help me lose a little weight. Has anyone else tried it? What were your results? My wife also got Insanity to do after the 90 days of P90X, then she plans on going back for P90X Plus after Insanity.
