Here we go day 50 and the start to the 2nd transition week in the P90X3 Challenge. We begin this week with Isometrix which is another type of yoga workout but with more emphasis on balance moves. I went into todays workout not really remembering what it all entailed but once we hit that first move I remembered for sure. The problem is that I am still very sore and all the balance moves on one leg are not going to help much with the soreness. I’ll have to do my best and forget the rest, but honestly I’m looking forward to giving my legs a break some day.
Day 50 Isometrix
Isometrix is a balance and plank workout. There is no jumping or running of any kind. We simply hold a version of a plank then balance on one leg in another version. We do this continually for the entire 30 minutes. By the time the workout is over I was covered in sweat. The biggest difficulty I had with Isometrix was with my wrists. We do a lot on planks with only one hand on the ground and by the time we were half way through my wrists started to tighten up. I was able to get through the entire program so it wasn’t a complete hinderance, but I noticed it. The move I struggle with the most was the “bound dog on one leg”. I could lift my leg but it wasn’t too long before it was back to the ground. I can still feel the soreness in my body, mostly my legs and I’m hoping by the time we complete this transition we I’ll be good to go fo the next block. I wanted to mention one thing that surprised me with todays workout. And that was the amount of work we put into our obliques, I mean we really hammer that muscle and by the time we finished I was “feeling it”.
