P90X2 Ends Again Or Does It

Another journey through a beachbody workout comes to an “official” close. That’s right I’m saying that my 2nd time through P90X2 ends again or does it? I decided that I would close out journey 2 today.

I closed out with a great PAP Upper workout where I got through it all and pushed it hard. Then I followed it up with an Ab Ripper X2 set. Still working on the tummy.

Here’s my stats ending this time around:

After Stats on 08/11/12:

Chest: 40”
R. Arm: 11 7/8”
L. Arm: 12”
Waist: 34”
Hips: 37”
R. Thigh: 21 5/8”
L. Thigh: 21 5/8”

Total Inches: 178.125
Weight: 179

I have increased a total of one inch to my body. I’ve added a few pounds but I’m still shy of the 182 that I’d like to be. My other goal of the flat belly is probably a week or two off. What this means is that after taking a break next week, I will fire up phase two of X2 again.

Why?

I found that I lost the most belly during phase two. Which is why I’m going to retreat to that phase for an additional week or two after a week off. Give myself some rest, then pound the workouts to achieve that final goal.

Enjoy yourself and if you’re looking to start getting into better shape join me in a fitness challenge starting in September! Until then, P90X2 ends again or does it really ever end? No. It’s a lifestyle change for the better. Time for some Shakeology and some Poker.

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.
