P90X Day 51 + The Abs Diet – Core Synergistics
Happy Presidents Day everyone! I had the day off of my day job, so I got to sleep in a bit and then press play on P90X Core Synergistics. Plus, I had time to do the bonus round! I wish I would have wore my heart rate monitor. I pushed hard. Only had a lot of issues on walking push-ups and one other move, but other than that did great. My shirt was DRENCHED except for the bottom 4 inches.
Nutrition today was pretty good.
Speaking of nutrition…
Coming from using the P90X nutrition guide for nearly a full year last year I’m finding more and more that I’m combining the theories behind the Abs Diet and fitting them into the P90X plan. It is actually working quite well for me. For instance, I’m looking at only doing a certain amount of starchy carbs. I’m aiming for so many veggies with each meal. I set a protein goal. Things like this, which are covered in the P90X portion plan.
