This website is for those who want to look great and feel great. Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time. My focus here is on workouts the natural bodybuilder can do at home with inexpensive equipment. Don’t be fooled, home workouts do not mean easy workouts and they can be just as effective as the gym. This site is FREE and there are no “members-only” sections or newsletters to buy, its my way of giving back to the sport that has given me so much. I don’t encourage the use of any supplements or the purchase of any new equipment, you can build a fantastic physique with just a cheap used set of dumbbells.
The best way to remove fat around the waist and chest right off is to go for a “calorie deficit”. If you’re using P90X, you should have received a nutrition guide which will detail everything you need to know as for nutrition and calorie needs. Have you looked though that resource yet? It would bring you down in calories a bit o help with the fat loss you’re looking for. You may lose some lifting power but it shouldn’t be by much since you’re still lifting weights with P90X- just keep them at the same levels and increase the load where you can and you should, at the least, maintain your gains.
I’ve changed my sleeping habits lately also. Before I was going to be around 2am and getting up around 7am, terrible I know. The past week or so, I’ve adjusted that a lot. I’m going to bed around 10pm, and trying to get up around 5am. This is when I plan to get my workout in. Get up at 5, head to the gym, workout, hit the showers, and head on into work. I noticed another article you wrote about not eating before you work out. Do you feel you have plenty of energy for your workout when you do that? I’m one who can’t eat when I wake up, so I will probably be working out on an empty stomach also. It makes me nauseous if I don’t wait a couple hours to eat. At the same time, I don’t want to fizzle out during the workout, or miss out on any gains.
