I started my P90X3 journey on Monday! After the 10K Sunday, I was thinking that I might be crazy to jump in so quickly. But so far, it has gone well with little additional pain.
One thing about the first week on a new program…it can take some getting used to! I haven’t done a full program with Tony Horton (P90X3 isn’t a graduate program of the prior ones. Anyone can do it) so I have to get used to his style of instruction. The moves are all new and sometimes I have to pay more attention to the tv than I can to the move. Next week will likely feel more intense than this week because I will have a week under my belt.
I started out with the Classic program – there are different schedules to choose from based on you and your goals, but classic is a great all around one so that’s what I chose! I’m now on day 3, so I’ve done Total Synergistics and AgilityX and will do X3 Yoga today. I will do write ups on the workouts as I get more comfortable with them. So far, I’m not dreading doing them again, and I’m sore in odd places…using muscles that I hadn’t in a while I guess!
I decided not to start out with the X3 nutrition plan. I’ve been doing well with the 21 Day Fix plan, so I’m sticking with it. I worked out a formula to figure out losing weight with a more intense program (there are formulas for maintaining with 21 Day Fix and then more intense programs) so I’m trying that out. The formula put me at the same calorie category for the X3 nutrition plan, so you could also take the calorie goal from X3 and use that bracket in the 21 Day Fix. I’ll see how that works and switch if I think it will be best!
I didn’t do the fit test. I plan to, maybe tonight. I should have done it Saturday, but was so focused on the 10K that I didn’t think much past that! I really want to. When I did the Insanity fit test, it was a really good measuring tool! I like measuring tools…especially ones that don’t involve the scale.
Time for X3 Yoga! I’ll let you know how that goes.
What is your workout plan right now?
