We’ve completed week 5 of P90X3’s Classic Schedule and everything seems to be going so fast (and so well!). I am truly enjoying this program. It provides a lot of variety, is fun, and the workouts zoom by. This particular week was particularly interesting, because we got to try several new workouts (MMX, Eccentric Upper, Eccentric Lower, Incinerator, and Triometrics), so we had lots of things to look forward to.
Overall, I thought the caliber of the workouts took a step up (not that the first 4 weeks weren’t intense, but this just added an extra oomph at the perfect time). It started and ended with a bang (still reeling over Eccentric Upper’s intensity and the pure joy I got out of MMX) and I’m still feeling as amazing as ever. My energy is still skyrocketing, I feel more alive, and I’m continuing to see results (in cardio and in strength).
For this week’s weigh-in, I am down 1.6 lbs, bringing me to a total weight loss of 8.6 lbs. Not too shabby for 5 weeks (particularly since it’s not taking into account any muscle that I have gained in the process).
I’m looking forward to the next week to bring it in my workouts, since I now have a better idea of what to expect and what weight selections to use. I’ll probably reduce the assist on my pull-up bar in order to continue to make it more challenging so that I can hopefully do some pull-ups without it by the end of this journey.
Again, if you want some easy motivation, check out Workout Tip Jar or find an accountability partner or challenge group.
