P90X3 - Week 2 Recap

Friday, April 14, 2017

The theme for this week was very obviously non-scale victories.  What do I mean by that?  I mean, first off, this week was "pre-shark week," and it was a doozy.  So, no, I did not lose weight this week.  BUT (yes, it's a big but), BUT, there was definitely some observable progress (and some really great lessons) this week.  First, the progress pics:

Not terribly different, but still some progress.  I will take it!  What I'm most proud of, though?  The objective performance data of last week compared to this week.  Higher weights, more reps, higher calorie burn, increased flexibility...all things I track with each workout, and all things that have improved.

The kicker?  I felt weaker.  I felt slower.  

Thankfully, numbers don't lie.  Lesson #1:  Track your workouts!!

One such measurement of progress?  Plow pose.  I was SOOOO frustrated last week because I couldn't touch the floor with my toes in Plow.  Um, hello?  That's not where I used to be, flexibility-wise, and it was utterly discouraging.  I knew lifting had made me tighter; I knew I wasn't *as* flexible as I once was.  That fact was one reason (among many) I chose P90X3 as my next program.  But, wow!  Not being able to touch the floor - even with bent legs - that was humbling.  

But after a solid week of Tony's program, I am very happy to report that I was able to touch the floor with STRAIGHT legs in week 2!  

Sometimes a little change is all you need.  Lesson #2:  Don't be afraid to flip the script!
