So today I begin the second half of the P90X3 Challenge with Eccentric Lower. Day 46 brought me to another decision in my workouts. Should I increase the weights from last week or continue to see how I do. Well, I decided to see if I could possibly go heavier. I was proud that I could go heavier on each move. Not sure if it’s from gaining strength or just that I began at a number that was to low. Either way I’m progressing and that’s what I want to see.
Day 46 Eccentric Lower
Eccentric lower is another one of those leg day workouts. Even though it’s not considered a “leg workout” triometrics bothers me more than eccentric lower. I have a much harder time with it and I’m actually more sore the next day. Like I said above I increased my weights on each move once again today and I’m not exactly sure where I will top out. I make sure that I don’t sacrifice my form in going heavier but I did notice I had to pay extra attention to my range of motion. With heavier weights my mind was wanting to stop a movement well before I was deep into it. All I know is my legs were screaming by the end of the workout and that I almost hit 600 calories today. Eccentric lower still took me about 41 minutes to complete (4 minutes is a P90X3 cool down) but I feel I’m getting the pacing down better as well as knowing the moves. Below you’ll see my worksheet from this routine. I’m hopeful to continue in the right direction and will continue to push myself to the limits each day, that’s where change happens.
