Ah yeah, Plyocide. Last week, if you can recall, I ended up bonking out in the middle of the workout. I’m pretty darn sure it was due to a couple of things. One, being on the road and not getting the same amount of nutrition as I normally would. I wasn’t eating bad, just not to my potential. Two, a lack of sleep. I normally have a schedule that is shifted from most people. I go to bed late, but I also get between seven to eight hours of sleep. Usually eight. When I’m doing that I’m getting that Plyocide I mean Plyolife type of workout without bonking out.
Today was full on. I was keeping up. I nailed all the moves. I brought it and brought it 110%. No bonking. I did get winded a few times. Apart from that it was as strong as I’ve ever felt doing any kind of plyo type workout.
When you’re feeling this good it’s amazing what you feel like you can accomplish. I know I’m going to push the next workout. I can feel it already. May mean that I’ll move into the Phase Three sooner than I anticipated.
Have you been getting that Plyocide I mean Plyolife into your day? Are you pushing it? Are you phoning it in? Let’s get you into the discussion, let me know how your workouts are going. Join me in my NRG.
Oh the humanity. Today marked my first time bonking in a P90X2 workout. That’s a little disappointing. Mostly because I haven’t bonked in a workout in a loooooooooong time. Great thing is I really pushed it hard. So while I ended up throwing up after the first plyocide workout in P90X2, this marks my first bonking in plyocide.
Sadly I was really doing well too. Keeping up. Means I have to make sure I’m really getting all the nutrition and energy I need. It’s a little tough while on the road, and maybe this is a residual effect of last week’s out of town trip. I’m not sure.
What I do know is that I’m still going to continue onward and upward with tomorrow’s recovery and mobility section. The journey hasn’t ended just because I couldn’t finish a workout. Hell no, I was pushing it harder than I have before and suddenly found a wall. A wall that will come down. I will overcome.
Are you getting your workouts in? Do you give up when you hit a wall? Do you take it in stride and continue on the next day? If not, you should be.
It’s better to have bonked than not done it at all. Saying so long and thanks for bonking in plyocide, I’m over and out to get some nutrition. See ya tomorrow.
Day two of the second phase of the X2 journey. It’s more of the plyometric style of workout. I got much further through it as I was going this time. Keeping up with the peeps like Roberto, Traci, and Tony. Still having to pause once in a while, but I’m nearly on par with them now. Kinda makes me think it’s good to always look at the plyocide of life.
The fact that I’m pushing a little harder makes me feel good about it. But it was a little slow getting started today. Mostly due to the upper body workout from yesterday. Whew. I’m feeling Chest Back and Balance today. My oh my.
Onward and forward. I need to get my breakfast gig on. I think I’m going to be making some egg cups this morning. Power breakfast. Then it’s on to the ski hill for some X2 Skiing. Two workouts in a day.
Come on and join the journey! Then you’ll always look at the plyocide of life and get a kick out of it.
Plyocide or Plyo Life inside of week 3 in the X2 journey. That’s where today is. Mostly due to the fact that I added an X2 day of skiing yesterday. I know X2 Skiing isn’t in the program, but with the way I ski, it ought to be. The beauty is, I’m skiing harder than I have in a few years. I’m pushing faster and harder turns than I can remember. It’s a beautiful thing.
I had a mogul run yesterday that reminded me of my competitive days. Difference is, I was pounding rather than riding. Made me miss the glory of competition. Especially with how today’s competitors have nice straight lines to turn through and pre-built jumps. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
With Plyocide today, I found myself hitting the pause button a little more often than last week. Not because I wasn’t able to keep up. No, this time I was hitting pause because I was pushing it harder and harder. Meaning I was keeping up, and extending myself. The extra pauses were to keep myself in check and forego the possibility of what happened in week one.
I’m really getting into now. Thanks Tony.
Time to go get my organic breakfast on. Then finish up a new song or two. What will you do?
Like any workout, to more you continue it, the better it gets. Same goes for the Plyocide workout. Last week as I mentioned it was deceptively hard and I ended up going so hard that my body retaliated in a way.
This time around I got through the workout without the retaliation. That’s a big plus. Doesn’t mean it didn’t kick my ass, it did. What’s good is that I’m already getting used to it and my body is getting in better shape.
I’m looking forward to the next workout in a couple of days.
Let me start by saying yesterday’s adventure was awesome. Getting back into the swing after taking a month off from working out. It was a good start. Today was Plyocide. The first thing I’m noticing is that P90X2 appears to have much longer intros to warming up. Foam rollers seem to be the long part and the most strange.
Getting into Plyocide was much like the regular Plyo from P90X. However, instead of repeating everything, each part is a little longer in time and little more intense. By halfway through the workout I was getting pretty wiped out. Nearing the end, I found out exactly what Recovery Drink ends up tasting like when it comes back out.
That’s right. I ended up hurling. X2 is deceptive. It appears to be easy, but man oh man. It sneaks up on you about half way, by the end you’re dripping in sweat and wondering what just happened. I had to hit pause a couple of times to catch my breath. Can’t wait to get this all the way through without a pause. Give it a couple of weeks.
On to tomorrow which is a rest day.
