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.

Ah. Day two of the recovery week. I’m feeling like a yogi. Or maybe an X2 yoga bear. It’s all good. Though I’m wondering if I ought to cut the week short and jump into phase two.

Maybe I’m just antsy to move into working out. Not that yoga isn’t a bit of work. It is. But a week of it might be a bit much of it for me. Jury is still out on that.

Meantime I need to think about replenishing my shakeology reserves. Love that stuff.

Week three of the journey is coming to an end. Two more days then it’s a “recovery” week. Today it was X2 yoga mah brutha. A little play on a Tonyism from P90X.

What did I notice today? Some of my stretches, or as yoga peeps would say – poses, are getting a bit farther and stronger. I did have a couple of toe taps in the twisting half moon poses. Though I have to think this only due to the length of time Tony has us holding those moves.

I’m getting better with the “belly” moves now too. My core must be getting a whole lot stronger and that’s a plus.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s workout to end the week.

Where are you at with your X2 journey? Are you enjoying the X2 yoga mah brutha?

X2 Yoga Push

Aw yeah, today was the next step in the journey. It was an X2 Yoga push kinda day. As I mentioned last week, I feel like X2 is a much more doable routine for yoga. However, there are a couple of spots where it’s still a tad tough.┬áThe biggest issue is the speed of some of the moves. There was a more relaxed pace in the original yoga from P90X.

The toughest move so far has to be the extended warrior 3 section. Standing and balancing on one leg while keeping form is not a piece of cake. No, it’s pretty darn tough. Add to that, the amount of time standing in that position, or at least staying on that leg and oof – it’s a burner.

I was able to keep up much better this time. Nearly got into a full Crane as well. Had moments of it being only on my hands and some with only a single toe. That’s improvement to me.

Following it up with a kickin breakfast. Then I have to decide if I’ll be making a few turns on the hill or diggin deep into music making. Maybe I can slide both in…

One of the tougher P90X workouts was always the Yoga X. Mostly due to the amount of time it took and some of the moves. Hard stuff for someone that is beginning the yoga journey. Crane was one I attempted, still can’t really get off my toes without landing on my head (something I’m not keen on doing). X2 Yoga is tougher in a couple of ways, but way more fun in others. Plus as a workout it’s barely over an hour.

So much better!

I much prefer the X2 Yoga over the P90X version. I wasn’t feeling as beginnerish. Add to that the fact that the moves are generally easier on the body and more opening. There’s still crane in there, and in there twice, but this time I’m not as concerned that I’m still not getting quite off my toes. The moves don’t feel as rushed and there’s a better flow to it.

Love it.

Breakfast today will be a homemade quinoa cereal with fruit. Yum.
