P90X Day 53 X Stretch

Today is the middle of the recovery week and I decided to stick with the plan of attack by doing X-Stretch.  I was focused for most of it.  After a while I got a little bored, but understood that it had to be done.  Nothing is really hard in this workout.  I should say it can be as hard as you want it to be.  I look forward to tomorrow’s workout and plan to kick it up a notch.  I want to finish this week strong.

As for my diet, which I haven’t been doing so well lately has me a little concerned.  Next week we start a new phase diet and I want to do my best to stick with it.  I don’t know what I’m going to do without my protein shake.  It should be interesting.

Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous

P90X Day 25 – Stretch to the X

I was waiting for today knowing that I would be doing a new routine and although I could have done this DVD in first few weeks ago, I decided to give my body a rest on those days. The X-Stretch DVD turns out to be an essential part of your workout week. In week four it shows up right in the middle. This was perfect timing to get into all those important moves that keep you flexible and balanced.

I wasn’t expecting 57 minutes of stretching, but in the end I was one happy workoutee. The thing rocks. It really makes you think, why didn’t I do it week one. I was thinking rest day is a day of rest, but it is obvious that you should be stretching on rest day. Also these stretches are used throughout all the other videos so it lets you practice even more. You will know what you are doing faster without looking at the TV. I see a lot of Tony Horton these days, but the more I get to know the moves the better.

I was fortunate to meet someone today who started at the same time as me on this journey. I will share his web site with you as soon as he makes the video he told me he was going to do. We are now being accountable for our training and already he has shared so much knowledge. This is me keeping him accountable on that video. Stay tuned.

Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous

P90X Day 7

A day of rest. This has been an excellent day for sure. I’m pretty spent, but at the same time I feel pretty good. I spent time with the wife and kids and had some good food. I looked back on the past week and told myself, wow you made it through the first week. Nice work. My wife, who is also doing the P90x workout is cranking on all cylinders. She is getting up at 5:45am every morning to get her routines in and she is pretty excited as well. I’m really proud of her drive right now, knowing how hard her day is already. Two kids, a full time job, a husband; rock and roll sweetie.

We have not worked out together yet, but I’m sure at some point that will happen.

Chest and Back Week 2 here we come.

Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous
