Heading into my SIXTH month of tennis elbow and making slow progress with getting my back stronger again, I’ve been able to get back to working out more consistently. Nothing too heavy that would risk any setbacks, but it has felt good to be able to keep up a more regular schedule again. Now that it’s been a month since I’ve given X2 Performance a try, it’s time to give you the lowdown.
The first time I gave X2 Performance a try, it was about a half hour before heading out for a run. I didn’t expect it to be a great run by any means since I hadn’t run more than a few miles at a time in months. I didn’t plan for any specific mileage; just needed to get my feet moving and hoped my heart rate wouldn’t go through the roof or my lungs wouldn’t feel tight a mile into it. A half hour into it, I was surprised how strong my legs were feeling and I didn’t feel like I was having to push myself too hard. Instead of the usual
mental conversation to keep myself going, I felt like having a Forrest Gump kind of day and wanted to just keep running. Lesson learned, however, that I need to ease back into things, so I cut my run short after a few more miles and still had plenty left in the tank to get in a pretty good leg workout at the gym afterward.
When I had X2 Performance before a gym workout, I noticed that through my workout, I was more focused – on my workout and what I could do, rather than being distracted
by these stupid injuries even I’m getting tired of talking about. It’s quickly made it into my regular routine during longer/heavy workouts.

Hustling all day…and getting back to it. I’m kinda liking the extra kick that X2 Performance has provided. I don’t get the jitters that come with some pre-workout supplements I’ve used in the past, and there’s no post workout crash, either. If you haven’t already given it a try, it’s not too late. You can get trial of your own here.
How do you get your workout mojo back when you’ve been off the grid for a while? Supplements or no?
