Begin week 2! Last week was a pretty good week for me. I did well hitting all my scheduled workouts and stuck my diet for the most part. I was able to drop 4 pounds in my first week and I don’t expect to have that kind of number this week. I’m trying to lose maybe 1-2 pounds per week. My goal for this week will be to push a bit harder and raise my rep counts and weight.
Day 8 – X2 Core – Today was one of the best workouts I have had in a long time! I went harder today in knowing what to expect. I was about spent by the last move so I know I went hard. It felt good to feel my core already getting stronger in ONLY 1 week of P90X2 …unbelievable!
X2 Core Stats:
Workout Duration: 57:32
Calories Burned: 731
Day 9 – Plyocide – Today was Plyo day. I have been feeling great these last few days and was able to “bring it” hard today. I’m trying to push myself beyond my comfort zone. I am having some success with just that, by the end I am spent which is the idea right. Today was a great workout for me, my mind has been clear and focused and I’m enjoying every minute of it! My numbers were much better today than last week too!
Workout Duration: 55:50
Calories Burned: 802
Day 10 – X2 Total Body and Ab Ripper X2– Having feeling great the last few days I thought I would be excited to push play today. I woke up with a sore wrist, I think I may slept on it wrong because it wasn’t sore when I went to bed. I iced it this morning trying to get some mobility back. So having the wrist issue I kinda was worried if I could do this workout at all, but I wasn’t going to let it go by without trying it. To my surprise the wrist really wasn’t a problem, it was still sore but once I got going it wasn’t an issue. I raised most of the reps counts and weights compared to last week and man I’m feeling it trying to write this out. Total Body is not just a clever name it’s the truth!

Day 11 – Insanity Core Cardio and Balance – Today is Yoga day, but it you have been following me you know I just don’t like Yoga. So to replace yoga I decided to go with an Insanity Workout today. High intensity cardio is a whole other ball game. I have to say it was fun to go back to Insanity, but back to P90X2 tomorrow.

Day 12 – X2 Balance + Power – Another day of balance, combined with power. I seem to continue to move forward in P90X2 and I’m getting better each and everyday. I increased each and every rep today from last week with the exception of one. I had a “retard” moment on one of the moves, I write down everything to keep track of my progress and I actually wrote “retard” because I just could not get my body set and by the time I got it they were done…doh!
X2 Balance + Power Stats:
Workout Duration: 56:55
Calories Burned: 676
Day 13 – 14 – Off and LesMills Pump – This weekend I did what I did last weekend and took Saturday as a rest day. Sunday during the Packers/Giants half time I did a LesMills Workout. It was less than 30 minutes but a really good burn. Gotta keep pushing play!
Week in Review:
This was one of my best weeks to date going through my workouts. In terms of clarity, focus and intensity. I felt great most everyday and was able to push myself pretty hard throughout each workout. Saturday was a much needed break and Sunday’s short workout was fun to do. Any workout that you can say is fun is going to be a good one, right. I have continued to take the Jack3d supplement prior to my workouts and this week I upped the dose to two scoops. I have ordered the Brand new Beachbody pre-workout drink Energy and Endurence and I will be trying it soon to compare. Shakeology for breakfast has continued to be a mainstay and of course the post workout drink, Results and Recovery is a must! I have dropped another 1.2 pounds and that’s really my goal (1 pound per week) so I feel I’m doing just the right amount of calories per week. I look forward to week 3!
