Giving PAP Lower The Smackdown

Hi there, I’m Jody Whitesides. As you can see, there’s something a little different today. I’ve decided that I’d start doing video to these posts. So that you could put a face to the words that you’re reading here. So let’s get on with it. Today, I started off week three of phase three by giving PAP Lower the smackdown.

I was a little worried in getting started this morning when walking around the house I was feeling a little ping of pain in my right heel. There’s the possibility that I’ve pushed myself a little hard and strained the tendon. However all of that dissipated, once the workout got going.

Last week with PAP Lower, I was at the point where I was keeping up to the DVD. Today marks a change in that not only was I keeping up, but I was actually getting ahead. And I was having the DVD catch up to me! Now if I could get to that going with PAP Upper I’d be a happy camper.

The one move that has been difficult in PAP Lower has the side bridge leg lift. Not. Any. More. Today, totally rocked it!

In addition, with my goal of getting my belly completely flat, I’m adding the Ab Ripper X2 workout 3 times in the phase three weeks. 3 times each week in phase three. Today was one of those days. So, much like the PAP Lower workout, the ab ripper workout is one where I’m pretty much keeping up. Now, I’m to the point, where not only am I keeping up, but the DVD is trying to catch up to me at this point. So that’s a great thing.

It’s time for some Shakeology. Make sure you get some. This stuff is really good and a hearty breakfast. Once I’ve got that going. I gotta get to my music and get on with my day. So, let’s get fit and physical. Have a good one!

X2 Base Back And Abs Punched

I got my yoga X2 on yesterday. Didn’t post it, but it got done. This morning I woke up a little early, not sure why. Thus I’m getting my X2 Base Back and abs punched early. This is likely the hardest of workout of the 2nd phase of P90X2.

This is lots and lots of pull-ups interspersed with lots and lots of plyo moves. Work it, then push it, work it, then push it. Omph. Based on my numbers from the last journey through P90X2, I can say that I started off stronger, then ended up a little weaker.

Meaning, I did more pull-ups at the start. By the end I was doing slightly less. While I didn’t hit my PB in pull-ups, I do feel like I brought it as best I could. I did end up using heavier weights in the one move that has weights. Not only did I use more weight, I also did a couple more reps of that move – plyo lunge press.

The ab workout is getting easier, though a couple of the moves seem to be getting harder. I’m not sure how that works in my head. I know my abs and core are getting way stronger and that is the real concept here. The Phelon Twist is probably the one move that I’m still struggling a little with.

This concludes the first week of phase two. Overall I’ve seen improvements from the last time through. That is the goal. To Improve. While I got my X2 back back and abs punched today and I’m a little beat, I’m looking forward to next week. If you’re up for a challenge, contact me to get on the next fitness challenge group (space is limited). Time for Shakeology and breakfast.
