Phase 1 is called Foundation. It really concentrates on balance to build strength in your core so you're ready for the crazy that comes in Phase 2 and 3. The other thing that's different about P90X2 is that you choose how long you want to do each Phase. They suggest anywhere between 3-6 weeks for each of the 3 Phases. Devin and I chose to do Phase 1 for 4 weeks. We felt that our balance was sufficient enough to move on to the next Phase.
So here's our Phase 1 results..
(note: our body fat caliper broke, so we weren't able to measure that before we started)

Lt Thigh: 0
Rt Arm: 0
Lt Arm: +1/2in.
Waist: -2 1/4in.
Rt Thigh: +1in.

Before we started X2 we were still working out, but not eating so good on the weekends for a while. After doing program after program and watching what we ate all the time for 2 years, we needed a little break to keep our sanity. I had lost some muscle and put on some extra pounds. From day 1 of P90X2 we've been back in our BEASTMODE! My goal is to have the same measurements as I had when I was at my fittest. I'm really trying to not look at the scale this time and focus more on the inches. Devin's goal is to maintain his weight this time and bulk up. We're going to Mexico in June, so we have plenty of time to reach our goals!
We will be doing 6 weeks of Phase 2, so I'll check back in with results after that!
