Don't give up now! Week 3 of my P90x ChallengeTuesday, February 09, 2010
Just like the squirrel that’s standing on my deck Monday morning. I bet he (or she) wanted to find those acorns, and no matter how freezing the temperature was, the squirrel was not one bit intimidated by us or the weather! It had to do what he (she) longed to do…
- Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X
- Shoulders and Arms, Ab Ripper X
- Power Yoga
- Legs and Back, Ab Ripper X
- Kenpo (my favorite)
- Rest or Stretch (Tried 30 minutes of this on Sunday and I must say that I’m looking forward to Sunday…)
According to the P90x Classic guide, "Phase One, which is weeks 1-3, the goal should be to master each movement and finish the workouts in one piece."
So it's more of learning the routine and not how heavy the dumbbells.
Sometimes during the routine, my body just says, “enough”. Just like yesterday (Monday), I couldn’t do the last 10 minutes. I couldn’t lift my arms. It’s chest and back and yet my arms are getting a ton of exercise!
I do the Ab Ripper X when I first wake-up in the morning...
So I'm looking forward to Week 4: Recovery and Ab Focus.
(Lucky, too, that we have a neighbor who built his own ice skating "square" in his backyard, and my little guy got to play ice hockey with his pal!)
It’s pretty amazing! (I play with it every morning after I straighten his room and every night before I tuck him in! )
