This week I begin Phase 2 and I am excited to get to these strength training workouts. I feel I burn much more calories and fat when I do resistance workouts. Being I have not previewed any of these workouts I will most likely take it easy just to see where I stand before going hard core. At this point I’m thinking of doing about 4 weeks of Phase 2, but we’ll see how things go once I get started.
Day 29 – Chest Back and Balance with X2 Ab Ripper – Brand new workout today for me. This was mt first time doing this routine. I went ahead and played it safe not knowing what exactly to expect. It is similar to the original Chest and Back workout in P90X, but includes a bit more “balance” moves. Of course you can modify anything you need to. I really liked this workout and expect to see good things from it. I tried the all new Energy and Endurance for today’s workout and was really surprised how well it worked for me. I have used Jack3d and wanted to see how it compared, well it compared very nicely, maybe even better. The taste was much better too, it’s like a strong lemon lime. I will continue to use it instead of Jack3d. After the workout I went directly into X2 ab ripper…I have never done that before! Want a pre-workout drink try E and E!
Chest + Back + Balance w/X2 Ab Ripper Stats:
Workout Duration: 116:21
Calroes Burned: 732
Day 30 – Plyocide – “Death by jumping”, well not really but I still enjoy this one and each week I’m able to push myslef a little bit harder than the previous time through it. Today was day 30 in my P90X2 journey and I’m still doing well. Looking forward to tomorrow’s first time with Shoulder’s and Arms.
Workout Duration: 49:50
Calroes Burned: 654
Day 31 X2 Shoulder’s and Arm’s – Back to basic’s today, well not really. Shoulders and arms was my favorite P90X routine and this one is going to be one of those I like too. Glamour muscles are my favorite to work on (they need the most work). This was a repeat workout which I generally don’t care for to much but it seemed to go pretty quick. I like the fact that even though the moves were repeated there were about 7 moves to do before you actually repeated them.
X2 Shoulder’s and Arm’s Stats:
Workout Duration: 57:17
Calroes Burned: 597
Day 32 – Cardio X – As of the first week I have been replacing X2 Yoga with a cardio workout. Lately I have been going with an Insanity workout but today I went with an oldie but a goodie. I did P90X Cardio X, I love this routine and just so you know…YES I skip the yoga portion of it. With skipping the yoga portion it cuts the workout duration down to about 35 minutes. Short and good workout and as usual I can keep up with the cast in this one, I can’t say that about many workouts.
Cardio X Stats:
Workout Duration: 34:02
Calroes Burned: 461
Day 33 – X2 Back and Base – The P90X2 schedule for today calls for back and base. However I have committed to play in a Softball tournament tomorrow and don’t think I will be very valuable if I can’t hardly move. My legs are already sore and that’s without doing the legs workout. So I’m skipping this workout.
Day 34 – Softball Tournament – Played in an all day tournament and had a great time with great friends. Got a pretty good workout in today overall and I’m glad I decided to skip yesterday’s workout.
Day 35 – Off
Week In Review:
I wish I could say I had a great week but I would be bending the truth just a hair. I felt good all week in terms of my P90X2 workouts, but my diet was not one to be desired. I stuck to my diet all week, but when the weekend hit I fell off the wagon. I ended the week with about 4 cheat meals (not cheat days). Being that I workout pretty hard 5-6 days per week I have one meal per week that I eat whatever I want. Well this turned into about 4 this week. The Super Bowl didn’t help in that factor but I need to have stronger will power than I did. I’m not letting it get to me though. I will be back on track next week. Stay Tuned…
