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.
