P90X Day 86 Completed: P90X Core Synergistics

P90X Leaning Crescent Lunges

P90X Leaning Crescent Lunges

Today is day 86 of my P90X workout and I just finished an intense, but great session of Core Synergistics! I always seem to forget how intense this workout really is! It’s a great total body workout that incorporates cardio, stretching, and resistance training all in one workout. I was sweating like crazy throughout the workout as well as struggling to catch my breath in between some of the exercises.

What made today’s workout a little harder than usual is that my back/shoulder muscles are still somewhat sore from rock climbing on Saturday. That made the Leaning Crescent Lunge, and the Lunge Kickback Curl Press especially tough. I used the 10 pound dumbbells during both of those exercises. During the Squat Run I ended up having to drop the 10 pound dumbbells about a quarter of the way through and finish the exercise with no weight.

All of the push ups and the other exercises went great! I maxed out my reps on all of the push ups. One big improvement that I’ve made with Core Synergistics is that during the Plank to Chaturanga Run I was actually able to do the run while in Chaturanga! It was really tough, but I managed to run the entire time except for about 2-3 seconds towards the end (I took a short break).

Well I’ve got to get back to work! I hope everyone gets in a great P90X workout today!
