I need to correct myself - in yesterday's post I said I did Back and Biceps, it was actually Chest and Back and boy do I feel it in all the right places today!! I have soreness in my lower abs as well. Whoot- I haven't been sore for along time.
Today I faced my biggest fear in the P90X workout series- Plyometrics. I have read reviews about this workout and have heard it can make big, athletic men weep in pain. At the beginning Tony talks up how tough it is and even suggests that you sub in Cardio X until you can work your way up to Plyo.
I may be singing a different tune tomorrow, but I didn't think it was THAT bad. In my humble opinion, if you can do Cardio 3- you can do Plyo. 80% of these moves show up in either a cardio video or a cardio interval in Body Revolution with a different name. We've got jumping lunges, squat jacks, up over over back (called hot feet), rock star jumps, 180 hops, towel runs and on and on. There are some really fun new moves as well such as monster tire runs and a move where you leap across the room like you are jumping from rock to rock on a creek. I took it pretty easy today based on advice I have read from other xers and I still burned 607 calories in 59 minutes. I liked that there was a warm up and you didn't just go straight into jumping.
Food today was pretty on point:
Breakfast- YES, I am in a rut. Steel cut oats again! This time with kiwi and raspberry.
Dinner- Brown rice, chicken, and green olive dish my hubby made while I was working up a sweat.
Have a great night! :)
