Round 2, Day 20. Rest Week Begins – Core Cardio and Balance Review

Tags: ,

Core Cardio and Balance This workout is a nice break from the crazy pace of some of the other Insanity workouts but it is cleverly designed that you can really modulate your heart rate to give you the kind of workout you are looking for. Each section is 60 seconds unlike most of the other […]

Round 2 – Day 19. Rest Week Is Here – Or I Can’t Count!

Tags: ,

I was going through the days I have already done, trying to keep track of what days I have done and which I have replaced. Apart from being appalled at the amount of days off I have given myself I find that the numbering is getting confusing. This is partly due to the fact I […]

Day 88 – The whole rest week problem

Tags: ,

So I have figured out why I am hating P90X all of a sudden. It is this lingering painful last rest week. I have always been the type who like to finish practice with a sprint. When I played rugby throughout all my youth either in England for my school or County, here in Canada […]

Day 87 – Heart Monitors and Stretching

Tags: , ,

Extreme Relaxing… Bring It (to me on the couch) I was reminded today while watching the Biggest Loser on TV the importance of a good heart rate monitor. Even if you are not particularly concerned with your heart rate per se you should have one that tells you how many calories you have burned in […]

Day 84 – Stuck in a time warp

Tags: ,

Day 1 of rest week 5. Supposed to be Yoga, may Plyo instead. The thing about this coaching lark is that it has thrown my workout schedule so far out of whack I can’t keep my days straight. Thankfully I am only 7 days away from completing the program and getting my P90X stripes. That […]

Day 56 – Weekend that was. Phase 3 that will be…

Tags: , , ,

Rest Week comes to a close. My last few days of rest week were definitely restful. My diet has not been stellar the last couple of weeks and I can feel myself lacking the energy and the drive I had at the start. I need to concentrate more on my intake and balancing my live […]

Day 54 – A Long Way From England

Tags: , ,

Yoga X. I do have some body shots from day 1 or thereabouts, but for now this will have to do. Last summer we went to England and I can’t believe in a country of 65 million people nobody mentioned that I looked this bad! My weight went up and down during gymnastics season and […]

Day 53 – Gumby would be proud

Tags: ,

One of the best things about rest week is the requirement to do X Stretch. For those who choose to take Sunday (or day 7 whenever that is) off instead of doing X Stretch this will open your eyes to a new kind of workout. It is kind of like Yoga would be if it […]

Day 52 – The Hamster Dance

Tags: , , , ,

Kenpo, my favourite. Not only is rest week a great break from the hardcore workouts but it allows you to really enjoy the workouts rather than forcing yourself through them doing as much as you can. This extra enjoyment makes Kenpo an amazing workout. I got my recovery drink in the mail the other day […]

Area 51 – Bodyparts (Abs, who knew?)

Tags: , ,

I will put up before pictures but at the moment I can’t stomach them so these will have to do. Just goes to prove that anyone can find some abs, even if it is only one or two! I am having a hard time imagining that I will be significantly different than this at the […]
