P90X Day 32- Yoga X, P90X Phase 2 Diet Research
P90X today was Yoga X for me. It started out really, really bad. Not sure what the deal was, but I was off balance during the easy stuff. The vinyasas did not feel right and nothing felt right. It was an off morning. I took out one 11 minute section of it because it deals more with balancing which I knew I would not be able to handle this morning.
Needless to say, it was a struggle. I made it through around 75-80 minutes of the 90 minute routine. Yoga is not supposed to feel like this or be this much of a struggle (hard, yes, but not a struggle).
So I’m looking forward to P90X Legs and Back tomorrow (along with Ab Ripper, of course) to break out of the funk of today. I’ve been icing my knee as a precautionary move.
Doing a lot of research on the diet plan during this phase. I notice that a lot of people’s major muscle gains/fat loses come during this 4 weeks. So far, though, myself and several others in our group on the P90X look and feel as if we are bloated. This may be due to the change going from 1 carb serving to 3 carb servings per day.
The only cure for this (in my mind) is stick to the diet and push really hard in every exercise, going to near exhaustion on every rep and keeping the heart rate in the zone at all tims during cardio routines.
I’m still debating adding Cardio X or another form of cardio on resistance days. My only hesitation comes from giving the body enough time to rest before waking up to another cardio routine.
There is a tennis tournament coming up the first of May that I’m considering playing in for the sake of it. It’ll be interesting seeing conditioning if I decide to do so.
