P90X Week Three Day 1

Monday, March 15, 2010

I don’t know if it’s the fact that I have 2 weeks behind me or if it’s the fact that I did my routine with Cues and Music only, but I nailed this one today! I did every single move, including the Dreya Roll and every style of push up. In the last 10 minutes of the routine I wasn’t able to keep up with Tony either because my HR was up too high so I had to take it down a notch, or because I worked to exhaustion. The only thing that was affected this way was the push ups. DARN! LOL

My routine was 52 min today * I burned 379 cals * 45% of which were fat cals * I stayed in Zone 22.5 min * with an AHR of 128 * and a MHR of 157. My push ups are starting to resemble real push ups. Not quite there yet but closer every day.

I definitely prefer working out without Tony’s constant dialog. I find it easier to concentrate without the distraction. I mean, let’s face it, you can only stand listening to the same jokes for just so long. Right? Between the music and the fact that I was able to focus more, I feel I got more out of my routine today.

I’m going to switch things up a bit this week so I don’t need to take too many props with me while I’m traveling. I’m thinking I may save Cardio and Yoga for Friday and Saturday, with my rest day on Sunday. That will mean doing Arms & Shoulders and Legs and Back on consecutive days. My yoga mat if easy to travel with but I’d rather not lug weights with me. I may take a few bands but I’m not sure.

I noticed today that I’m more flexible than I was last week. That, too, could be from more concentration and less distraction since that’s how I prefer to do my Yoga, and many of today’s stretches were Yoga moves.

I am so glad I made this commitment to myself. I love the structure of P90X, esp. when the weather is bad and I’m stuck inside.

    I am laffing about the Tony comments! OH my! But seriously,yes, it is the effort over time to do these things that is building your stamina and strength! Form is more important than finishing every move and working to exhaustion is the right way to go, doesn't matter if you can't DO another then you have done it right! So you GO, girl! Keep up the work!
