P90x: Bonking All Week

I’m at the end of week 3 of P90x. I’ll be on a “rest” week next week with no strength training. And, boy, do I feel like I need it. My energy is in the toliet. I’ve done worse getting through workouts all week. It isn’t that my muscles are tired, it is that I…

P90x Day 12: Just Keep Pushing Play

Finishing up my second week on P90x and it is good. I think my intensity is down, but I’m plodding along. I get up and do as much as I can every day. I haven’t completely missed a day yet. I will miss my first day tomorrow, but I’ll do Kempo X on Sunday instead….

P90x Day 8: Return of Shoulders and Arms

I puked again. My only consolation was that about 3/4 of the way through the second round of exercises Tony says he was feeling a little nauseated. So maybe it is inherent in the workout. Or I’m just a wuss. But I won’t be forever. It was no easier the second time. I thought since…

P90x Day 5: Legs and Back

I just couldn’t do it. I wasn’t willing to puke and that’s what was going to happen about half way through it. So I just skipped over the rest and went to the cool down. Then I went back to bed. Going Back To Bed One thing about working out is you have to find…

P90x Day4: Yoga X

Doing Yoga X was like doing Ab Ripper in that you get through an exercise or two and then go “Yeah, right, now way can I do that.” I spent a lot of time watching them do stuff I couldn’t possibly do. I will say there is a point about 40 minutes in where you…

P90x Day 3: Shoulders and Arms

On day 2 my arms were sore from the Chest and Back workout of day 1, but now I know what it really means to work you arms. Lots of weight work. For the last exercise I found I could do 7 reps with my right arm and zero with my left. Strangely I felt…

P90x Day 2: Plyometrics

The first cardio workout and it kicked my butt. Matter of fact the next day my butt is primarily what is hurting. 🙂 Plyometrics is not low impact, which my back doesn’t really like, but I think ultimately will be good for me. I could do a low impact Cardio X routine, but I want…

P90X Day One

I haven’t puked during a workout since High School but I did today. I guess that makes it extreme. But I went back in and finished the last 3 set after my stomach was empty. The first workout is Shoulders and Arms, which means a lot of different kinds of push ups and pull ups….
