This is the first week of the final phase of P90X. The schedule mixes things up a bit and the workouts are in a different order. No more Core Synergistics on Monday. Instead this is on Friday, which will be tough after a week of workouts. Mondays are a new workout: Chest and Back. This one brings different kind of push-ups like dive bombers and decline push-ups. Don’t let that scare you. I can’t do many and I can’t do the full version so I modify it. The rest of the week is the same except no more Legs and Back. That is the only down side to the last month – no leg workouts. To make up for it, I’ll be sure to run hills and to do some squats!
As for the hybrid part of the week I did an INSANITY workout and Les Mills Combat Kata 45. Kata 45 is a great workout. I didn't even realize how hard I was working. Before I knew it, I was done and I burned 260 calories. I also ran on the treadmill twice for 2 miles each time as a second workout. The beginning of the week included rest and recovery since a nasty little bug went through my house starting on Christmas Eve. It was good to get back into the swing of things after 3 days off. I’m looking forward to finishing out this month strong!
