Day 35 and the end of week 5 is officially in the books. This week seemed to take much longer to get through than the last few. Nonetheless it’s over and I’m moving on to week 6.
Week 5 In Review
Week 5 was an epic week for me in terms of the workouts. I pushed myself pretty hard everyday trying to get out of that comfort zone. The trick however will be to do it again and again. I’m really feeling this 2nd block of the P90X3 Challenge for its strength training workouts. They are brutal and very fast paced. Three of the workouts this week took me into the 40 minute range to get them done due to needing to watch the cues before performing the next move. My calorie burn was off the charts this week compared to the transition week and I even out burned my block 1 average calorie burn. That’s incredible to me mostly because in this 2nd block we are more focused on strength training opposed to cardio. Moving on to week 6 I need to focus and continue to push the intensity level up. I’m excited to see where this 2nd block of P90X3 takes me.
Week 5 Nutrition
I have been able to keep my nutrition fairly solid throughout the week, just like I have this entire P90X3 Challenge. But again the weekend has it’s bumps and bruises. I refuse to be so anal with my nutrition that I don’t enjoy a little snack or treat from time to time. I feel I had a better weekend in terms of my nutrition as of late but there is still room for improvement.
Week 5 In Conclusion
Like I said I torn through this week with high intensity and really gave it my all. Even so I wasn’t expecting too much from the scale in this week 5. But being part of this challenge I have committed to weighing in each week. As of day 35 in the P90X3 Challenge I’m down 11.4 pounds. Is that insane or what! And NO, I’m not starving myself, I eat 5-6 times per day to keep my body fueled. I never feel hungry so I will continue as I have for these last 5 weeks. Stay tuned…
