Day 1 of P90X3 is in the bag! I am doing the classic schedule, and today was Total Synergistics. Holy cow that workout was hard! And not hard like Insanity, dying-to-catch-your-breath-laying-on-the-floor-drenched-in-sweat type hard. This was like, trying-to-figure-out-what-the-heck-I'm-doing-my-body-can't-do-that type hard.
Some of the exercises like the "crawly plyo push-ups" and the "chin-up circle crunch" took me a few tries to figure out the modified version, since there was no way I could do the regular one. I have like zero upper body strength. It's sad, really.
Overall though, I really like this workout. I could tell that my core was really getting worked, which is so great. There were also quite a few one-legged balance moves, and some upper body weight-lifting exercises. The only time I really felt my heart-rate pick up was during the "3 hop press" where you do 3 hop squats into a shouler press with one-leg raised.
Since there was such a learning curve with this workout, I'm not really sure how much I actually got out of it today. It will be great when I can see some improvement in this one. I WILL beat you Total Synergistics!!
Also, here is my meal plan for this week. I tend to eat the same things most of the day, and only really change my dinners up. I am pretty boring, but if you need ideas, this might just help you. :)
