The Palm In Yoga

This morning’s workout was all about the stretch, relax and do those strange poses. One thing I’m starting to dig about the whole Yoga concept is that I’m finally getting to a point where I can bend over. Not that I couldn’t before, however, for me right now it’s all about the palm in yoga. Meaning I want to be able to palm the floor.

When beginning the X2 journey I couldn’t really do much more than get my fingers to the floor. Easy enough. But getting the palms down there too, yikes that was tough. I imagine that it’s a combination of the yoga and the foam rolling. I’d bet that the foam rolling is helping more than I can tell.

Another noticeable thing today was more sweat. Yup, since I was pushing moves further I was sweating more. Another accomplishment is my longest crane hold yet. A tough move for balance and somehow I was able to finally hold it about 1/2 of the time length Tony calls out for. That’s improvement.

There’s three more workouts left in this journey then it’s on to the next Challenge! I’m excited, I’m seeing results. I’m in better shape than ever. I really think the next round will push me over the edge when I get it completed. Get in shape with me! You’ll be glad you did. Pretty soon you’ll be happy about the palm in yoga too.

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.

It’s another day of X2 recovery week. Today X2 Yoga continues. Not a lot to really tell on this, other than I’m feeling good and I’m excited to see what comes in Phase 2. Only a couple more days. Then the next round continues.
