As we begin week 2 of the P90X3 Challenge I’m reminded of how hard it can be to commit to something after such a long hiatus. I still feel like momentum is on my side at this point. On day 8 we return to the first P90X3 workout in Total Synergistics. I did go after this workout with a little more intensity and heavier weights but found myself burnt out by the time got to the last move in the workout.
Day 8 Total Synergistics
All in all I feel like Total Synergistics on went well today. I will admit that even through it’s only day 8 I got to the point of feeling nauseated by the end of the workout. Maybe that’s a good thing, but it doesn’t feel good. I got a lot more of this workout done today compared to Day 1 and that was to be expected now that I know what’s involved in the workout. I also upped my weights by 5 pounds and that really made more of a difference than I thought it would. We don’t use weight on many of the moves in this routine but we use them enough to feel it. One thing that does have me by surprise is my core strength. I notice that I’m able to complete each of the specific core moves in their entirety. That’s a really good sign to start out with and it makes me excited to see where I’ll be towards the end of the 90 days. One thing I’ve noticed is that they don’t really incorporate the Ab Ripper workout in any phase of P90X3, does anyone know why that is? Please comment below if you have the answer, the only place I see it is in the Elite schedule.
Day 8 Total Synergstics Nutrition
Monday is usually my meal prep day. I mostly prep chicken to use in various ways through out the week. Since I cook for my family every evening there isn’t a need to prep every meal so I mostly just prep my lunches. And of course Shakeology makes it so much easier to stay on task with my nutrition goals. If you struggle with nutrition I recommend looking into Shakeology. If you have any questions regards shakeology be sure and let me know. I have been drinking shakeology for over 3 years now so I;d be happy to help.
Breakfast – Oatmeal with protein (8 oz green tea)
Post Workout – Chocolate Shakeology, add whey protein and PB2
Lunch – grilled chicken breast and side of mixed veggies
Snack – Pure Protein Bar
Dinner – Protein Pizza Muffins (Insanity Recipe)
Snack – Cottage cheese mixed with strawberry preserves
Go To Day 7 or Go to Day 9
