Here we are on day 57 and this is the first time we see the Decelerator workout. Today marks the first day in the 3rd block of the P90X3 Challenge. As such we start a new schedule and a new layout for this final block. One of the first things I noticed about this block is that the workout that I seem to always look forward to based on being sore is now a day farther away. X3 Yoga has been pushed back to Thursday instead of Wednesday. Not sure how this will affect me moving forward but I know it will be much more valued in that it’s a day later. The other thing I notice is that the P90X3 schedule will now incorporate the “muscle confusion” style of the schedule much like its previous versions. We’ll rotate between 2 different weeks totaling four and cap it off with the final transition week or “Victory Week”.
Day 57 Decelerator
I don’t really know what to say about this workout. Being my first time through it I had to watch a lot of cues to know what to do. There were both simple and complex moves involved with the Decelerator workout. For the most part we work on decelerating our momentum. I still show a need for a lot of work in the world of balance. Especially when jumping and landing. I found this workout to be fairly intense but again this was my first time going through it. Decelerator is the new Monday workout from here on out so I’ll have more time to enjoy this routine. I burned over 400 calories but I will be more once I don’t need to watch all the cues. I’d consider this an upper/lower body workout but there is no need for weights as we use gravity for that. I’m looking forward to next week to see if I can improve on what I did today.
Day 57 Decelerator Nutrition
If you read my week 8 review then you know I decided to start tracking my nutrition for this final block of P90X3. Today is the first day and you can see my nutrition in the image below. I’m doing a macro of 30-40-30 (proteins, carbs, fats) and it’s going to take me a few days to get a feel for that style of setting. For the most part I try to do more proteins. One thing I added for this round that I haven’t been using is the Results and Recovery drink. Mostly to help with soreness and recovery. I’m only using 1 scoop being it has so many carbs and sugars, but I make sure they fit into my macros for the day. As far as calories is concerned I’m shooting for a goal of 1900 per day, this may sound a little low but we have to remember that there are 2 days that the workouts aren’t big calorie burners so as a weekly goal 1900 per day fits me, for now. Once I weigh in and take measurements next week I’ll know if I need to adjust up or down. For day 57 I finished with 1913 calories and my macros at 33-38-29. Stay tuned.
