Today is day 37 of my P90X workout, and I just finished Plyometrics. It kicked my butt like usual, but I feel like I’m making some good progress with this workout. All of the different variations of squats always kill my legs, but today I was able to get through more of the squat exercises without stopping.
I got through all of the reps during both sets of the first sequence (Jump Squat, Run-Stance Squat, Airborne Heisman & Swing Kick), and I almost made it through all of the reps during both sets of the second sequence (Squat Reach Jump, Run-Stance Squat Switch Pick-up, Double Airborne Heisman, & Circle Run). I think it was during the second set of the Run-Stance Squat Switch Pick-up that I had to stop towards the end of the exercise to give my legs a break.
The remaining exercises went really good. I had to stop from time to time during the remaining squats to take a break, but I think I’m slowly getting better at them. It will be crazy when the day comes that I can get through all of the exercises without stopping. At that point, I’ll know I’m in pretty good shape!!
Nutrition for today-
Breakfast: Bowl of Fiber One cereal, and a protein shake.

Dinner: Tonight my wife and I are actually going to be eating at Chick-fil-a for dinner. She is going on a mission trip to Mexico with her church during the summer to build some homes. Chick-fil-a is donating a portion of the proceeds from tonight to help support the trip. I’m going to look on their website prior to going to figure out what I should get. I’ll probably be getting some type of salad or a grilled chicken sandwich.
After-Dinner: Protein shake.
