P90X Core Synergistics
Today is day 51 of my P90X workout, and I just completed Core Synergistics. I almost forgot how intense Core Synergistics was!! I was sweating like crazy throughout the workout, and I was struggling to catch my breath between some of the exercises!! Overall, I think I did pretty good with this workout!
I used 10 pound dumbbells for all of the exercises that Tony recommends using them just like on P90X day 26. Using the 10 pounds dumbbells during the Squat Run was really tough! I almost made it through the entire minute (I think it was 30 seconds with your left foot forward, and 30 seconds with your right foot forward) with the dumbbells. I dropped them to the floor during the last 10-15 seconds and finished the exercise. For the Squat X-Press I was able to get through all of the reps using the 10 pounds dumbbells without stopping (on P90X day 26 I stopped halfway). I did pause the P90X DVD after the Squat X-Press to catch my breath though.
Lastly, during the Lunge Kickback Curl Press I was also able to get through all of the reps with the 10 pound dumbbells without stopping (on P90X day 26 I wasn’t able to use dumbbells for all the reps). So I’ve definitely made some good improvements from the previous Recovery Week during Phase 1 of P90X. I think on Thursday I may up my weight to 15 pounds for all the exercises. I’m sure I won’t be able to do all the reps with 15 pounds, but I’ll just do my best!
