Here I am the third week of 13 in P90X classic and I think I’ll be changing up the workout some to give myself the workouts from Insanity that I enjoy doing — mainly the Plyometrics and Kenpo X routines will be replaced with Insanity’s Plyometrics and Cardio Power and Resistance.
Monday: Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
Obviously, copying what I’ve done before… Here are the reps I did for each of the exercises:
|Standard Push Up||10||15||17|
|Wide Front Pull Up||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||15||17|
|Military Push Up||10||15||17|
|Reverse Grip Chin Up||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||15||17|
|Wide Fly Push Up||10||15||17|
|Closed Grip Overhand Pull-up||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||15||17|
|Decline Push Up||5||10||12|
|Heavy Pants||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||12||12|
|Diamond Push Ups||5||9||9|
|Lawnmower||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||12||12|
|Dive-bomber Push Ups||5||7||8|
|Back Fly||10 (used 40lb resistance band)||10||10|
Got through the workout ok. Not much else to say about it. Although tomorrow is a slight blast from the past, using Insanity’s Plyometrics disk instead of P90X’s..
So, I changed it to the Insanity! Plyometrics, which I much prefer doing. I’ll use this one for a month and a half then switch to the harder MAX Plyometics for the rest of P90X.
Wednesday: Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X
I didn’t get a chance to do this one.
|Alternating Shoulder Press||10||10||x|
|In and Out Bicep Curl||10||10||x|
|Two-arm Triceps Kickback||10||10||x|
|Deep Swimmers Press||10||10||x|
|Full Supination Concentration Curl||10||10||x|
|Flip-Grip Triceps Kickback||10||10||x|
|Crouching Cohen Curl||10||10||x|
|Lying-Down Triceps Extension||10||10||x|
|In and Out Straight Arm Shoulder Fly||10||10||x|
Thursday: Yoga X
I still really like this routine. Definitely worth doing, even if it is a little long.
Friday: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Not bad, but at the same time, I think I’m going to be making more changes to the workout routines and start putting the weight machine to good use in my house. Ab Ripper X… still burns.
Well, I changed my mind and decided I’d keep some sort of martial arts as a Saturday thing to do, so I pulled out my DVDs on Yin Style Bagua and practiced some of it for about an hour. It’s nice because you can practice it as hard or as easy as you’d like and still get something good out of it.
Sunday: X Stretch
X Stretch is still a great one to do.. not much else to say about it. Although next week things change up a bit.
- P90X is nice, but if parts of it aren’t working for you, don’t feel bad if you switch it up. It’s your health and body. Make it fun for you.
