Day 23 introduced another new workout for me in the form of Dynamix. What’s weird is this is not the first time it’s in the schedule. Dynamix is the day 7 workout of each week, but I choose to take that as a complete rest day. So this was the first time I’ve done this routine even though it’s the 4th time I’ve seen it listed in the P90X3 schedule. Once again I did not know what to expect but knowing it was an end of the week workout for the first block I didn’t really expect it to be too hard to complete. It turns out that it was much more difficult than I expected.
Day 23 Dynamix
I don’t really know what to call this workout. It’s kind of stretch routine, but not really. I found my heart rate climbing pretty high a few times during the workout but didn’t burn too many calories. In fact it was fewer calories today than yesterday. Basically we go from head to toe and work on mobility and flexibility by elongating the muscles. Of course to make it fun Tony added a bunch of lunges into the mix. That’s where my heart rate was climbing. Dynamix was another workout that seemed to fly by once again, I can’t tell you how excited I am that I’m getting in awesome workouts and that they are over before you know it. I’m curious to see my weight loss by the end of this week since we really are only burning about half as many calories as I was last week. Should be interesting, but I know it’s just preparing us for the more difficult workouts that come into play in the 2nd block.
Day 23 Dynamix Nutrition
Another good day of nutrition for me on day 23. I went with a different protein source today in steak. I don’t eat much steak but my daughter has been begging for something new. I added quinoa and a nice size serving of broccoli and asparagus to top off the meal nicely. My final snack of the day is usually cottage cheese but I just didn’t feel it tonight so I went ahead and had a second Shakeology of the day. I took my favorite vanilla Shakeology recipe for something new. If you’d like to try out this vanilla Shakeology recipe click here.
