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.
