Summary of my first week of P90X

Friday, October 30, 2009

So I just finished my first week of P90X. It's hard but not too hard. I think that if I were starting from scratch and hadn't just completed CLX it would be WAY harder. The first workout has a gazillion push ups in it. I could only do about 10 on my toes and then had to go to my knees for the other zillion but my arms were so sore the next day it was unreal. Seriously it hurt to move, driving hurt, brushing my hair hurt. I never got that sore with CLX - but I've never done that number of push ups or attempted pull ups. At this point, I think if I can do 1 full pull up at the end of my 90 days I'll be amazed. Pull ups are freaking hard! LOL

I liked the plyometrics workout. Fun and calorie burning. Kenpo X was okay - didn't love it or hate it. I'm anxious to see what I think the next time I do it. Yoga X....what can I say about yoga? I'm not a big fan of yoga, probably because I suck at it. But 1.5hrs of yoga...man oh man. I did 70mins. I was proud of myself for getting that far. I'm going to stick it out and keep doing it because i would love to be more flexible.

So we'll see - I'm doing classic version and adding an extra 30 mins or so of cardio every day. If this doesn't do something to change my body I'm not sure what will.

In summary, I like it. Every workout has made some part of sore. It's similar to CLX but the workouts are longer and more intense.

Oh - I forgot ab ripper x which you do after each resistance workout (3x a week) OUCHIE McOUCHIE! that's tough - it's 16 mins of hard core ab work. I'll be excited when I can keep up with them in the video.

    Sounds intense! Good luck and keep up the hard work that you have been putting in and the results will come for you!! Those are some long workouts...I am not a fam of yoga at home..but I loved a class I took a few years ago in a hot studio. You sweat like crazy and left looking like you just stepped out of the shower but it feels amazing!!

    GREAT report! It sounds like you're working really hard and going to move deeper into the program quickly.

    Should say: I've never done it! So, watching from the outside? You're fab!

    Wow well done for taking on the challenge. I have spoke to many people on here who have taken on the p90x programme and they have gotten great results. I'm sure you will too if you stick to it.
