P90X Week Five Day 2
Monday, March 29, 2010
Powerful day, powerful workout. I decided on the Chest, Shoulders and Biceps workout today. I want to get the weight training exercises out of the way before I leave on Wednesday. I can always do cardio in the hotel gym or in my room.
I really liked this one today. It was hard and I wasn't able to do maximum reps on everything but it moved really fast and I loved the variety. I followed with ARX and felt full of energy. Soooo ... I popped in Kenpo and did another 45 minutes of that. Oh, what a feeling! The coolest thing was I felt like the Kenpo really clicked today. I felt like I knew exactly what I was doing and was doing it well.
I ended up with a two hour workout and it felt amazing! Even the dreary, rainy day didn't bring me down. Another cool thing is I have a new muscle showing up on my shoulder. I kid you not. An area that never showed muscle before is now sporting one.
I did my measurements today and in the past 28 days, I have lost 2" off my hips. My legs and arms are more toned, I am SO much more flexible and my abs are starting to firm up. During my stretching today, not only was I able to reach my foot, but I was able to wrap my hands around it. I was afraid that by now I might be getting sick of P90X but it's just the opposite. I'm beginning to crave the workouts and the burn that follows. I can't remember ever feeling like this about a tough workout before.
P90X - BRING IT!
