Begin Week 8! This begins my 4th week in Phase 2 of P90X2. I’m hopeful I can move on to Phase 3 after this week, but I won’t know until the conclusion of this week. Up to this week I have been upping my reps and weight for each routine and I will continue to do so.
Day 50 X2 Chest Back and Balance w/X2 Ab Ripper – Pushed to the limit today, upping my reps once again. I added between 2-4 reps on each of the push up moves and I can feel my muscle soreness already within minutes of finishing the workout. So naturally I am drinking the Results and Recovery drink.
Day 51 Plyocide – I was not “into” it today but it’s almost such a habit to get my workouts in that I didn’t even second guess myself and pushed play. Once I got started I probably went with the highest intensity I have ever done on this workout. I was nauseated by the end so I know I did pretty good LOL.
Day 52 – X2 Shoulders and Arms w/X2 Ab Ripper – Well well well, another good day in the books. I’m really feeling well lately and continue to be able to up my weight. Which makes me wonder if I started way to low and underestimated my own strength. This routine runs in 3 sets, set one balance on my right, set 2 balance on my left and round 3 U up my weight even more and go with no balance. Love it!
Day 53 – Recovery + Mobility – Normally today (Thursday) I pick a random workout to do. Today I felt like it was a good time to do some recovery. And the rumble roller was needed a lot so it was a good fit. I liked all the stretching and rolling of my muscles and I know I’ll feel more energized tomorrow.
Day 54 – X2 Base and Back w/X2 Ab Ripper – Today my left knee felt a little sore. Each time I have done this routine I have increased my reps, which I wanted to do today. With my knee being tender I was arguing with myself to either do the same or up the reps. After arguing with myself I decided to up my reps and the knee was ok. I jumped on my yoga mat doubled over so to save my knees. I have to say I crushed this workout and think I’m ready for phase 3.
Day 55 & 56 – Off/Vacation
Week in Review:
Another week in the books for Phase 2. This Phase has been a good Phase for me and I love see the improvements I have been making. Pushing myself harder each day is going great. I’m also tracking everything I have been eating and have stayed in my ranges for my diet. Well, at least until I went on vacation. Saturday was not a good day for me and my diet. I’m not to worried about it as it was the only day I screwed up my diet. I’m back on track once again and have 3 weeks until my Atlantis. So I think I’m ready for Phase 3. Stay tuned…
