P90X Week 2

I have been tracking down my progress in terms of strictly following the exercise routines of P90X ever since I started. Although I do not religiously follow the sequence of workout per day basis, I can faithfully say that I complete each workout everytime I started it.

It still amazes me that even though I have been doing heavy weights and high intensity cardio classes for these past few years, a week of doing P90x, the program never ceased to sore my muscles. Which is actually a good sign that my muscles were actually shocked after being on a plateau for quite some time now.

[toggle title=”Here is my Week 1 progress”]
Day 1 – Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 2 – Plyometrics
Day 3 – Rest
Day 4 – Shoulder and Arms, Ab Ripper X
Day 5 – Yoga (Not Yoga X)
Day 6 – Body Combat (Not Kenpo X)
Day 7 – Rest

You would notice that I had to rest in between especially after doing Days 1 and 2 because I was really sore. I could still do the supposedly Day 4 routine but my body demanded for more sleep and rest. So I had to skip gym that day. Also, in times where Stretch X, Yoga X, Cardio X and Kenpo X takes place, I will be replacing them with the normal Group X classes that Fitness First offer because I find it almost similar to the routine. Which technically adheres to muscle confusion, too.

I failed to the legs and back because of the rest in between. Ill make sure I will do it this week.

This are my two progress sheet for Chest and Back and Shoulders and Arms including Week 2.

Chest and Back

P90X - Chest and Back Week 2

Shoulders and Arms

P90X - Shoulders and Arms Week 2

You would notice the slight difference that I finally reached 20 in almost all push up routines. On the other hand, I really need to focus in doing better numbers and executions of pull ups and chin ups because my target is at least half of what the presenters are doing in the video.

On my first week in doing shoulders and arms, I picked a lighter weight because I thought it was killing like the Day 1 routine. So my first week was fun. Until earlier when I did the routine with a heavier load, I was gasping for breath and I had to take some ‘mini-vacations’ while execution. Nevertheless, I finished Day 3 properly except without the Ab Ripper X.
