P90X Days 3, 4 and 5

It has been too crazy busy around here for me to keep up with each day this week. It’s been so busy that I didn’t even fin­ish the day 5 work­out and haven’t been able to get back to it yet. Today I will though.

Day 3 was Shoul­ders and Arms then Ab Rip­per X. The shoul­ders and arms part wasn’t too bad. Although I end­ed up being a lit­tle sore the next day, espe­cial­ly my shoul­ders but the Ab Rip­per X is a frig­gin joke. If you get to the point where you can com­plete the Ab Rip­per X work­out and haven’t gained any core strength then there is def­i­nite­ly some­thing wrong with you. My prob­lem is twofold. First, I don’t have the flex­i­bil­i­ty required to com­plete this work­out the way I should. Sec­ond, I don’t have the core strength to com­plete the work­out prop­er­ly either. All in time, all in time.

Day 4 was Yoga X. Now, for all of you idiots out there that say, “Oh, yoga is for girls or hip­pies and it’s no big deal. It’s just some sil­ly hum­ming and stretch­ing.” Give it a shot big-mouth. You can come try it for a day and then let’s see how much smack talk you throw around after doing one ses­sion. It will kick your ass, roy­al­ly. As hard as it was it was more frus­trat­ing that I wasn’t as flex­i­ble as I thought I was. Again, that will come with time. Of course the kids and M scream­ing in the oth­er room didn’t help the con­cen­tra­tion that I was sup­posed to have either. Per­haps next week.

Day 5 was Legs and Back then Ab Rip­per X again. The prob­lem here was that I was already so exhaust­ed and tired from not sleep­ing well the past cou­ple of nights that I just didn’t have it in me to com­plete this work­out. This is where I’ll pick up today. Since I’ve had a cou­ple of days off I’ll start this work­out from the begin­ning and essen­tial­ly pick up where I left off.

Tomor­row, accord­ing to the sched­ule is Ken­po X. I have a feel­ing that once again my lack of bal­ance and flex­i­bil­i­ty will come into play but hey, I’m here to fix all that, right?
