P90X Day 26 Completed: P90X Core Synergistics

P90X Core Synergistics

P90X Core Synergistics

WOW! P90X Core Synergistics beat the crap out of me!!! Now that I know what to expect, I was really able to “bring it” to this P90X workout today. I maxed out on all of the push ups, and I pushed as I hard as I could on the other exercises. Also, instead of using the 6 pound dumbbells like on P90X day 23, I used the 10 pound dumbbells for all of the exercises that required them.

During the Squat X-Press I had to pause the P90X DVD about halfway to take a break. I took a short break, and then I finished the Squat X-Press. I probably should have switched back down to the 6 pound dumbbells at that point, but I was determined to use the 10 pound dumbbells throughout the entire workout. When I got to the Lunge Kickback Curl Press, my muscles were exhausted and I wasn’t able to do all of the reps. I ended up just putting the dumbbells on the floor and I finished the exercise without any weight. I really wanted to do all of the reps with the dumbbells, but my shoulder muscles were in too much pain and I didn’t want to over do it.

The Plank to Chaturanga Run was just as hard as on P90X day 23 (if not harder)! Since I had maxed out on all of my push ups, this exercise was especially difficult! I tried to run while in the Chaturanga position, but I just couldn’t do it today. Also, even though I was really tired, I feel like I did a lot better in the Reach High & Under Push-Ups. I was able to keep up with Tony Horton and the crew, and I only stumbled once towards the end.

I got a great P90X workout today, and I know I’m going to feel this tomorrow! I’m already feeling some soreness in my shoulders. Now we’ve got only TWO more days until week 4 of P90X is over!
