P90X Week 1

My wife and I finished week 1 of the P90X workout on Saturday! This is the 2nd round of P90X for me, and this is the first time my wife has ever done P90X before (well, she’s done some of the workouts, but she’s never completed the entire program). It was a whirlwind of a week! It was basically non-stop between my business and everything else that my wife and I had going on. We still managed to do all of the workouts, but it was a very tiring week!

We have been doing the workouts in the evenings, and that has been tough for me to get used to. During round 1 of P90X I would generally do the workouts about mid-afternoon (I work from home) and I usually had plenty of energy to get me through the workouts. This round of P90X my wife and I have been doing most of the workouts around 9 to 10pm at night. By that time of the day I’m usually pretty tired. I went into a lot of the workouts this past week lacking energy and even lacking motivation, which definitely isn’t good.

I either need to figure out how to wake myself up so I can “bring it” to each workout, or I may need to talk with my wife about us potentially doing our workouts early in the mornings (which I’ve never been very successful at doing, but it may be worth another try). The only other alternative is for me to just do the workouts by myself again about mid-day, but I’d rather not do that since I want to do this with Jen. I really want to continue doing the P90X program with her since I think it helps the both of us push harder. We’ll figure it out!

Below is a short clip of my wife doing P90X Plyometrics. I’ve got to get a new video camera!  I turned on all of the lights in our living room (it was very bright), but the video still looks super dark.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! If you’re doing P90X, Insanity, or some other in-home workout program, keep pushing play!
