the last couple of months were really damn frustrating. no i didnt try p90x and ss at the same time if thats what you thought. I started a while back doing SS and got frustrated reall fast because i wasnt gaining jack shit. i gained a little strength at first for like the first week and a half and that was it. i was putting 5 pounds on my squat every WEEK. and it not like i had been lifting for a long time. i was only squatting 170 for 5 reps (five deeep reps, but still)and feeling like a total pussy. i think there were a lot of reasons why this happend. i think mainly it was because my sleep went all to hell after like a month of school. For the last month ive been sleeping for about 3 or 4 hours at night and an hour or 2 after school. i have issues in that department. i was also just a bit over stressed i think. plus i decided to be an idiot (though i did get confused by what some people were saying that beginners should do) and add way too many exercises to the program instead just doing it how i was supposed to. but anyway enough ranting and whining
oh, also i havent been able to work out for like a month because i fucked up my shoulder grappling
ok now im done for real
anyway. a friend of mine just gave me p90x because he wussed out of it. anyway i was thinking that i would do it as soon as i get back from christmas break. i think ill have enough money after christmas for a pullup bar and some more dumbells. it would be a lot better for me schedule-wise because i wouldnt have to spend the better part of an hour going to and from the gym. much easier and better for my sleep to workout at home. but i still want to lift heavy and get big in the long run, so my question is (drum roll please) is would doing p90x and then going back to SS when im done affect my gains? Will all that high volume stuff slow me down on the big lifts like squats and dead etc?
