All silly, All day

P90x Day 5

Today was Legs and Back and Ab Ripper.

I found that the leg exercises were really easy to follow, some of the stuff Ive done so far, I could never figure out quite how to execute it but these were a little easier for me to follow. The only problem today is that you need to do a lot of pull ups and I have nowhere to do them, so that didnt really help.

Today was the first day I did the Ab Ripper. Since I lost my copy of Ab Ripper, someone made me a copy of the Ab Ripper for X2 so it might be different than the one I should be doing. I definitely felt the burn though. I liked it though, and I might just do it a few times a week.

P90x Day 4

Well, it’s day 4 AND Friday. I have to be honest, I neither wanted to work, nor gave it my all.

Today was yoga.

It was a 67 minute program, and I did 50. I know it seems like I gave up (and I did)but in my defense, its Friday!!!

I used to do Hot Yoga, and I have to be honest, that was wayyy harder. There were a few moves where I couldnt even understand what he was doing, and I tried but I thought I was going to break my arms.

In all honesty, I might not be giving it 100% but I guess 90% is better than doing nothing.

(sidenote: I didnt know you could sweat so much from Yoga)

P90x Day 3

So, today was chest shoulders and triceps. HOLY SHIT!!! I think today was the hardest day so far. Ive learned that I definitely dont know how to do push ups, but I also learned that you dont have to sweat to get a good workout. I tried to fold a shirt, and jesus did I want to cry.

No matter how much you dont want to do it, if you push throught the dont, you’ll get to the want to.

P90x Day 2

Well, Day 2 was definitely a good workout. I dont think I’ve sweat like that since we went hiking in Israel in 100 degree heat.

Now that I’ve actually stuck with something for 3 days (I went to the gym Monday so Im counting that =P) I kind of want to keep going. I read that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit so here I go.

Im looking forward to being sore tomorrow.

Im attaching pictures today since I didnt yesterday but from now on I will be posting progress pictures every Wednesday. Lets get into shape!!!

My foray into P90x-Day 1

Day 1-Core Synergetics

So, I started P90x last night. It was definitely one of the harder exercises I’ve ever done. I have to say, as difficult as it was I actually stuck with it for the hour (minus the bonus exercises, I’m saving those for when I’m good at it). The one thing I didn’t really like about the program was that it was mostly push ups. I assume that eventually as I go with the program I’ll have a better grasp of them, but for now, ouchies.

The only thing that is really bothering me about this though is, I was told I’d be in a lot more pain today and I have to say, except for my legs I am not really that uncomfortable. Did I do it wrong? I really pushed myself too. I guess I’ll see how I feel tomorrow.

Tonight, is cardio.
