First Full Week of P90X


After my first P90X2 workout (actually the Recovery and Mobility workout since I had just ran a half marathon), I was pretty sore the next day and rested/took the dogs for a quick hike. I tried out the X2 core workout the next and really began realizing just how weak I had become over the years from my physical activity slowly declining. Again, I had to rest the day after that because I was waaay too sore to workout.

…..Then came the Plyocide and yoga.

I was forewarned by a friend of the intensity of the yoga workout, and I knew plyometrics could be pretty brutal. But, your heart rate won’t drop a beat during Plyocide and, even if you have experience with power yoga, P90X2 yoga will still kick your butt. I believe I remember the hubby chilling on the couch behind me and occasionally chuckling at my attempts to keep up (especially during bakasana or crow pose when I clunked over on my head). My arms were pure jello before I even made it halfway through the yoga session, but I was surprisingly not real sore the next day. I still chose to do the Recovery and Mobility workout the next day since it’s the “lightest” of all the workouts (and yes, it’s definitely a workout rather than a recovery session. You’ll still be sweating quite a bit).

Today was Balance and Power, which wasn’t too bad. Granted, I only managed to do like half of the reps that were supposed to be attempted, but I was being careful with my form in hopes that I’ll eventually gain enough strength to do all the reps.

  1. That’s the one thing I’ve been horrible with–I haven’t been writing anything down. I know I should, though. I was writing my “scores” down when I did the Bodyrocker workouts, but between my muscles being fatigued and my heart rate jacked up, it was so hard to write legibly, lol.
