P90X3 Week 5 Review

It’s time for another P90X3 review!  Sorry we missed last week’s but with the move things were just too crazy.  This week we’re skipping food pictures simply because I didn’t keep up with it.  I vote that I have until March 1st to get my life together 😉

This week of P90X3 was the start of Block 2 so we will see the same schedule for the next few weeks.  Side note… I have work training next week and will be sharing a hotel room so I will be foregoing P90X3 and sticking with circuit workouts/gym equipment.  If I had a room to myself I would totally bring the equipment but I can’t exactly wake up at 5:30am and workout while someone else is sleeping.

Day 29 (Eccentric Upper) – I am quite the fan of strength training so I loved this workout.  The next time I do it I want to up my weights a bit for certain moves because my arms were sore, but not as sore as they should’ve been.

Day 30 (Triometrics and Pilates X) – My first workout of the day was Triometrics and I felt like I was starting P90X3 all over again.  My balance was horrible because all the moves were new and I wasn’t use to them  (<– muscle confusion, folks).  There was also a lot of jumping and it kicked my butt (in a good way).  Later that day I had some extra time and decided to do the Pilates X workout since I had missed it’s entrance the week before.  I absolutely loved all the core work!

Day 31 (X3 Yoga) – I was thrilled to see that X3 Yoga will still be a part of my weekly routine.  Each week I see improvements in my balance and form which is instant gratification.  For example, I’m able to hold the crow pose for a handful of seconds now without falling on my head 😉

Day 32 (Rest) – I was sick all night Wednesday/morning Thursday so I took the day off from working out.

Day 33 (Eccentric Lower) – Wholy moly my buns are still sore from this workout!  Next time I will up my weights for some moves and lower them for others.  This first week of new workouts is all about adjusting and figuring out what works.  There was also a ton of balance moves in this workout so I can’t wait to see myself improve just as I did in Weeks 1-3.

Day 34 (The Incinerator) – This workout focused on arms and the burnout section at the end was killer!!!  You basically held plank for about 2 1/2 minutes switching from plank, sphinx, push ups, balance plank moves, etc.  My arms will be sore for the next couple of days, I’m sure.

Day 35 (MMX) – Okay, so I’m very happy I was in a closed room for this one because it wasn’t pretty.  I was probably making up my own punching combinations for half the workout but I made sure I kept moving and therefore burned some serious calories in just 30 minutes!  It was a killer workout but I absolutely loved it.
