P90X Week Two Day 1

Monday, March 08, 2010

Week Two !!!!! Boy does that feel good to write!! I made it through all 6 workouts and even added extra cardio several days.

Core Synergenics emoticon I was pleasantly surprised by how much more I was able to do this week, as compared to last. And Sweat? Hell yeah! Must be I worked out harder this round too. The only moves I'm still struggling with are anything plank or push up oriented although I was able to pump out a few more each set. I still am not getting down very low on my push ups but I'm sure that will come with time. At least I'm doing something that resembles a push up. I still haven't done the Dreya Roll or the bonus round for this one. I never seem to have the energy for the Dreya Roll at the end. I'm going to try it earlier in the workout next time. I may even try it tonight or tomorrow. It looks like fun but I'm ready to quit by the time they get to it. I did attempt it once and couldn't even get off the floor. LOL! Talk about stuck! It was NOT pretty!

I'm hoping to squeeze in 30 minutes of cardio this afternoon or evening. I learned my lesson the hard way. I can not do my P90X routine in the afternoon or evening and expect to sleep at night. I tossed and turned all night, trying to stretch out sore muscles. On top of that, my body temp stayed way too high for sleeping for several hours. Extra cardio doesn't seem to have the same effect. I guess that just proves how much harder I work out with P90X. The funny thing was I wasn't sore this AM. Must have stretched enough during the night. LOL!

Cardio OW tomorrow. Ugh! Oh well. Last week it was easier than Core Syn. Hopefully I'll see an improvement there too.

    I don't think I could pull off any workout that close to bed time unless it is Yoga... which was a great relaxer for me!

    I have found that dripping sweat is an inevitable side effect to P90x :) The Dreya Roll takes some time to get the hang of... I looked pathetic for a LONG time! I've noticed the last couple times I've done it, I spring right off the floor... it just takes time!!!

    You are doing some great work! Keep it up!
