I wanted to go to the gym today and do a light 3-4 mile run, but I ended up getting home late and I had to complete a contract for my Real Estate company. So the gym was no longer in my plans. Instead as I was scanning all the docs I jumped upstairs and did Interval X from P90X PLUS.
I wore my old HR monitor and it said I burned 480 calories. This is also the first time I did Interval X since I began all of my cardio training. Even though this is a probably the toughest workout in the entire P90X and PLUS series I handled it very well today. I used to be dying by the time I got half way through Interval X but today I was holding strong. My HR got up to 174 BPM at one point but I think all the running in the anaerobic zone has really prepared me for Interval X. Also since yesterday was an off day that probably helped too. And I am now 5 days into taking Cell Mass, Nitrix, and Creatine so those are probably giving me a boost.
Tomorrow I am going to do Yoga X and then on Saturday I will begin my 3rd Round of P90X. It will be a hybrid round because I will be substituting pushups and pullups for dumbbells on a flat bench and a lat pulldown machine, respectively. And Plyo and Kenpo are going to be replaced with running, swimming, and cycling. So actually I will be doing more than what is required by P90X!
I will have Annie take a few before pics of skinny Jeff and we can see how this hybrid version works!
