P90x Week 5 - Starting Tomorrow

Saturday, November 10, 2012

I'm pretty excited that I've finished 4 weeks of P90x. The latest week was a "recovery week," which is not as easy as it sounds. You get a week off of weight lifting, but they kill you with cardio!

I've noticed many improvements in my strength. I'm so excited to get back to running tomorrow. I haven't run in about 13 days. My knee thanks me, but I'm ready to go. Here's my schedule for week 5-7:

Chest, Shoulder, Triceps
Ab Ripper


Back and Biceps
Ab Ripper

Run (Intervals)

Legs and Back

Kempo X
Ab Ripper
Run (Intervals)

X Stretch

I know it seems impossible to fit that all in and it is hard. Sometimes work gets in the way. I won't skip any of the weight training sessions and if push comes to shove, I'll move things around. Sometimes I spend all morning in court, then all evening at work. I will wake up at 4am to get these workouts in! Weeks 1-3 were draining and Week 4 has been a godsend. This routine will keep me busy until December 9th.

I'll post progress measurements after my Monday measuring. That will be weeks 1-4 results.

    i admire your determination. As a former LEO, I understand the often long, tiring days you face. Those make it more difficult to fit in exercise but we find time for what is important, don't we? Keep on keeping on. -- Lou

    Good luck! Sounds like a solid plan although getting up at 4 am doesn't sound like much fun.
