PAP Lower And Ab Ripper Kick Off Phase Three

That was a pleasant week off. Sadly I woke up late today. That didn’t stop me from putting my mind back on P90X2. I moved ahead with PAP Lower and Ab Ripper kick off phase three style. I forgot how it went the first time through 3 months ago.

I got into the flow of it though. Did what I could to keep up and for the most part I did. There were a couple of moments in the 2nd complex where I had to hit the pause button between moves. Mostly to catch breath. Otherwise the sweat flow was as expected and I pushed it hard.

This time around in phase three I plan on adding the ab ripper x2 workout. Mostly because I notice the big change in my belly in phase two. Mind you, I never had a big belly. But there’s just a little layer of goo left on my lower 1/3 of my “6 pack” abs. It’s darn near gone and I’ll be damned if it’s doesn’t go away in the next 3 weeks of this journey. I want it to go bye bye bye. So close. So close.

At this point it’s time for a kick ass breakfast and a Shakeology. Then time for the music work to continue. In the meantime, I’m putting it out to you – the Fitness Challenge.

Until then, lets get into better shape and I’ll forward to when you’re telling me that PAP Lower and ab ripper kick off phase three for you!

Getting My PAP Lower In Gear

Aw yeah! Second week of phase three began today and hot damn if I didn’t rock the workout today. My third time and I’m already getting my PAP Lower in gear! Of the two PAP workouts I feel the lower is easier, but until today I was still dropping a rep here or there.

The difference came today. I didn’t drop a rep and I pushed it hard. I will say that had to pause the DVD before the last Side Bridge move for about 30 seconds so I could catch my breath, but aside from that, I held out. Covered all the Side Bridge holds which was previously the hardest move in PAP Lower.

This makes me wonder if tomorrow I’ll be able to rock the PAP Upper as well. I’ve stated before that I find that to be THE hardest P90X2 DVD. Not the hardest moves, but the hardest combinations along with the constant moving. I’ll be happy if I can keep up for half the workout.

Join me in my happiness of getting my PAP Lower in gear. Where are you at with it? Are you exercising? Are you eating well?

I’m starting a fitness challenge at the end of the month on April 30th. I have 4 spots left in the challenge. Let’s help each other get in better shape! Join me.

I almost didn’t get to starting the next phase of the P90X2 journey today. When I got up from a late night of working on music, I was sequestered to help remodel my Grandma’s bathroom. After a day of sanding and painting walls and ceiling I was pretty wiped out. A little nap and I decided it was worth getting to the workout and push it. Thus I enter phase three with PAP Lower today.

Tony Horton started out saying that I wouldn’t be able to keep up the first time through. For the first 30 minutes of the workout I was wondering what he was talking about it. The first half I found to be quite easy even though I was learning the moves. Don’t get me wrong, I was getting a workout, though not as tough as I was hoping.

The 2nd half was a different story. The moves were a little harder. Plus I think my day was catching up to me. So while I did all the moves, I was a few reps short here and there. Overall a good workout. I was sweating more than I normally do. Yet, I don’t feel overworked. I’ll push it a little harder next time.

Now it’s time for a pasta dinner so that I can restock the energy. Oooh, I forgot to mention that I had a bowl of my own homemade granola this morning. I’ll have to post the recipe in the next day or two. It was very tasty and a great way to kick off my day. Not to mention a great start to enter phase three with PAP Lower.

The Journey continues…
