Block 2 P90X3

I should have wrote this last week. I did not I have no excuse. It happens. Block 2… I liked more than block 1. It included more weights and less meowing. Sorry Tony not a fan of that. I don’t believe he says as many corny jokes when weights are involved. Thank
God!

The workouts. These are for 3 weeks

Eccentric Upper

During the down phase of the move you move very slow. Eccentric training focuses on slowing down the elongation of the muscle process in order to challenge the muscles, which can lead to stronger muscles, faster muscle repair and increasing metabolic rate. This was a little harder to get used to. The slowing down of the workout. But you could feel the difference in the workout!

Triometrics

Think of Plyometrics all moves are not jumping in the workout.  But trio… So it is one move 3 different ways. All focusing on the lower body.

X3 Yoga

This becomes a weekly practice. Every week you will be doing yoga one day. Which is important. Flexibility training really does change the way that your muscles tone, instead of constantly working them. I have noticed a huge difference in my balance!

Eccentric Lower.

Lower body workout. With weight slowing on the down phase. This is killer

Incinerator.

Name says enough… It is all upper body jumping from push ups to pull ups to weights.

MMX

I saw the name was like awe shit this is lame. I was wrong. I don’t really care for mmx because I hate getting the sequences down. I pretty much stumble through it. But I was dripping with sweat. This is hard, but you are kicking and punching so you do not really notice the work going into it.

X3 Yoga

 

What I am learning through this workout. Is it has taken me out of my comfort zone completely. Tony has a way of taking a traditional move and tweaking it. To make you challenge yourself. Making me really focus on myself and the movement. Leaving the bull shit of life on hold. I have never had to balance as much as I do in this plan. I am taking more risks and trying moves that I know I am not going to get right away. Thats ok this journey is not about perfection.

So for whoever is reading this. Keep pushing forward. Take risks and enjoy the challenge. Share your journey with others. Who cares if you put yourself out there and are a bit different. Be Weird. You could be the inspiration to someone else. You could be that person who gives someone the power to change.

Have a great week! Do something today to make a better you!

XOXO
