P90X X Stretch Cat Stretch
I just finished X Stretch, which means P90X Phase 1 is DONE! It’s hard to believe that Phase 1 is already over! Week 1 of the P90X workout probably went by the slowest since everything was so new. Once I got the hang of the workouts, the days started flying by.
Phase 2 of P90X introduces two new workouts- Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, and Back & Biceps. I’m very anxious and excited to do these new workouts. When I compare the first 3 weeks of Phase 1 to Phase 2, they really don’t look all that different with the exception of the two new workouts. However, those two workouts work five different parts of your body, so it really is a pretty major change. This might be a painful week like week 1 of P90X, but I’m really excited to start!
X Stretch was nice and relaxing like usual. When doing the stretches, I kept pushing myself to get deeper into them. Today I was able to touch my toes on my left and right legs when doing the Seated Single-Leg Hamstring stretch. I’m still having to pull my toes pretty far forward to be able to touch them, but it’s still an accomplishment for me!
Since month 1 of P90X is done, that means I need to take some new photos and re-take all of my measurements. It’s not a requirement to do these things, but I think it is a good thing to do to help track your progress. I’m going to try to post my pre-P90X photos and the new pictures either today or tomorrow.
