Fitness Tip#202 - September 11, 2012

Do a fitness test

Before you start a new regime make sure you know your current state of fitness.

I do believe this helps so you know what your fitness level is. I don't believe it determines if you will make it through a program or not. Like P90X, I believe Tony (Beachbody) knew most people couldn't do a pull-up (including me) when starting P90X, but it doesn't mean you can't do the workouts. It just puts you in your place and by the end of 90 days, you will have a measurement to go by to see how much you have improved.

P90X2 Day 5, 6, & 7 Review

Monday, September 10, 2012

1st week of P90X2 is completed. I LOVE this workout!!!!!!

Day 5 - X2 Yoga
A couple new moves in this version of P90X Yoga. I believe it was just as challenging. Looks like I get quite a bit of practice on learning "crane." Hopefully by the end of my P90X2 I will have mastered this move :) 75 min compared to 90 min. not much of a difference.

Day 6 - X2 Balance + Power
This workout works ya!!! I felt this one. LOTS & LOTS & LOTS of squats and lunges in this workout! The "split lunge" move was my most challenging. It was difficult for me to balance my foot on the stability ball and do a lung. The "crab crawly press" took a little bit of learning too.

Day 7 - X2 Recovery + Mobility
I reviewed this for Day 3, but it is a great recovery workout. The rumble foam roller is awesome. I did a 45 min run yesterday and felt the difference on how loose and relaxed my legs were.

An over-all AWESOME workout program!!!! I am looking forward to my 4 to 5 wks of doing the "FOUNDATION" Phase. I'm sure by that time I will be ready to move on. If anyone has any specific questions about the workout or is interested in purchasing it, just let me know.

    If you are serious about doing crane then I would suggest you go take some yoga classes at an actual studio. While I love the YogaX DVD there isn't enough instruction to do the poses with proper form. Since I've been going to a studio and taking different classes even crane is possible.

Take a before photo

The change will be gradual and it is often difficult to see by
looking in the mirror but take a picture every month and see the changes.

Plan

Once you have set out your goals, draw up a plan on how you will achieve them.

This can also be difficult to come up with. You need to have a map of some kind to get to where you are going. For example, if you haven't done any exercising, then walking for a couple weeks would be a great start. Get your body moving. If I can help you, please let me know :)

Have a GREAT weekend and enjoy some fun activities this weekend!

Goals

Before you start any new program always write down your goals.

I know when I started I didn't really know what specific goals to write down. I just knew I wanted to look a specific way. Through trials, experience, and training, I have more of an idea of how to specifically write down or tell someone what my goals are. I completely understand how frustrating it is at first. If you need any help, just let me know.
