P90X Day 3: Wishing for Weight

Let's just say this day was easy-peasy. Shoulders and Arms, sounds like it should bring on the burn. It did...a little. It's my own fault though. I stuck with my tiny mobile dumbbells of 2 lbs. Granted, I harbored a bit of fear of overdoing it or getting injured. Mostly, I think I wanted to get all the way through the workout and know for sure I could up the weight next week.

Yet, see, that's the beauty of P90X. I can modify as much as I feel I need to and then make adjustments (even mid-workout if I want) next time. I felt like I had a half-ass workout this morning, and maybe I should have done the Ab Ripper X instead of waiting until this evening. Again, all my own fault, but no regrets...at all. I have next week to step it up with more than enough confidence that I can handle it.

I had hoped to have P snap a shot of me in the middle of the gun show training workout, but I got pleasantly surprised when he told me next time he's borrowing my mat for his sit ups!

Day 2 results: Pooped after plyos. Slept almost all evening AND then a full night's of sleep. Oh! My ass is getting more sore by the minute as this day passes on (thank you, Tony Horton for making me do all those squats).

  1. P90X, on the other hand, is designed with a different purpose. The nutrition plan is designed to help you change your body composition, not just just lose weight. Which means you will be eating to build muscle, not just lose fat. It's designed with a heavy dose of resistance training, again so that you build muscle, not just lose fat.
