Today marked my last hard day of working out in Phase Two of the P90X2 journey. It was a yoga day. Much like last time, I’m feeling like I’m getting further. I’m really excited to be ending recovery week with yoga.

Getting ever closer to being able to palm the floor in a forward bend. That’s a tough feat for someone who has long legs and stands 6’4″. I’ll tell ya, it’s kinda exciting to finally start seeing progress with all of it. Time. It takes time.

In a way, this moving through a workout regimen has been a lot like music. You build on it every day. Eventually you see the progress. At least that’s the way it is for me. Though I’m much faster with music. My body doesn’t really build muscle like most guys do. I’ve always been lean and it’s always been difficult to put on muscle and weight.

Now I’ve finally getting some definition. I’m finally putting on some muscle. Maybe it’s because I don’t do steroids. I’m not looking for the quick fix, I’m looking for the right route. So far that route started with P90X last year and is still going with P90X2 this year. Feeling stronger than ever before and definitely getting more limber than ever.

That’s a great way to be ending recovery week with yoga in the P90X2 journey. Phase three starts Wednesday. I can’t wait!

Impromptu Break Into Yoga X2

Got sidetracked for a couple of days. Ended up doing some work on a video thing. Then got a call to do music for a trailer. Deadlines and a little massage ended up giving me an impromptu break into yoga x2.

I was feeling a bit more relaxed going through the moves this time around. I think that’s a good thing. Mostly because I was getting further into the moves than I normally do. Had a couple of bobbles on the the left side of the warrior 3 part, but otherwise pretty solid.

Even had a moment of brilliance with the Crane move where I got fairly well balanced before losing it. It will be a great day when I’m able to move into Crane and hold it.

Time to get on with the next workout tomorrow which will end my phase two and begin my recovery week. Looking forward into getting through the final phase of the P90X2 journey. Once in a while life happens. When it does, don’t be bummed if you get an impromptu break into yoga X2. You’ll swing right back in and keep moving forward.

Ah Yoga X2

Today was week two of phase two and with it came yoga. Sometimes I really enjoy it. Sometimes not so much. I’m here to say that today I enjoyed it. So ah yoga X2. Made me feel good.

I was a little stiff to start, but after the first 15 minutes or so I was really opening up. That’s kind of a first for me. I usually don’t open up if I’m stiff going in at the start. I see that as a plus for me.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, yoga X2 is nice in that it’s barely an hour. That makes it more doable compared to the yoga in P90X. Thank you Beachbody. I’m off to a great start today and I believe it has to do with that workout.

Ah yoga X2, I did it. How about you?

GDC Yoga

Waking up this morning was not as exciting as I like it to be. I’m in a different town and for some reason the amount of traveling I’m doing is catching up. I was a little sluggish this morning. I pushed myself to do what I call GDC yoga. I say that because I’m attending the GDC and I need a pick me up to get me moving today.

Fortunately yoga doesn’t require much in the way of things. Which is why it was good to get to today. Got my blood moving. I noticed there were some movements where I had better extension. That’s a good thing. Additionally I had a moment in Crane where I had the move right where it should be. A personal best for me with the length of Crane I held in balance. I’m finally starting to get it right and that’s satisfying.

Time for breakfast and a whole lot of walking, greeting and talking. It’s Geek Game Time. Plus networking with developers to push for music work.

Today marks the last time through Yoga X2 for the recovery week of Phase one. I’m really beginning to see body changes in this first third of P90X2. That’s truly remarkable. I’m happy to see these changes occur. Have to put a thank you out to Tony, Carl and all the Beachbody peeps that brought this program to life. In a way it’s sad to see X2 yoga ending week four, but I’m really looking forward to phase two.

Stay tuned. The Journey continues.
