Day 12 started a bit off kilter to any other day I have had in the P90X3 Challenge. One of my dogs of 12 years passed away last night and I had to bury him this morning. This on top of having the How long does it take for prednisone to work later in the morning. I wasn’t too sure how I was going to handle the workout after an emotional draw of losing our family pet. I dug deep and pushed play and the workout went much better than I anticipated.
Day 12 P90X3 CVX
CVX stands for Cardio Vascular Xtreme and let me tell you it is exactly that. Doing cardio can seem a little boring at times but adding a weight to it really amps up the intensity and focus somehow. I’m not sure if I stated this last week but I am now, this is my favorite routine in the first block of P90X3. I seem to be able to push a little harder on this routine than the others. I don’t think it’s because this is an easier routine, in fact I might go as far as to say it’s harder than the other first block workouts. CVX gets my heart rate higher than the other routines in this month so I guess it’s the extra weight in our hands that does the trick. I started again today with the 8 pound med ball but after the first half of the first set I had to go down to the 5 lb dumbbell once again. I did however go back to the 8 lb med ball for the burnout round. Only one more workout this week, and only one more week in the series before we see a new set of workouts how exciting is that!
