“If you need one, take a break. Look at me, I’m taking a break, what the hell, life is good. I’m the leader, I can do whatever I want. But when you’re back, you’re back with a vengeance!” Tony Horton (creator of P90X)
The thing about P90X and Insanity is that even though they are unbelievably challenging, they allow you to go at your own pace. You simply do the workouts to the best of your ability.
That’s what Tony is saying here. There’s no shame in taking breaks. Just make sure you aren’t selling yourself short.
You can’t be disappointed in yourself if you honestly gave it your all.
