After completing 3 weeks of the Foundation Phase and 2 weeks of the Strength Phase of P90X2 I’ve decide to stop doing P90X2 and go back to do another 13 weeks of P90X. My previous posts have dealt with the issues I have with P90X2 but I also found new problems when going into the strength workouts. You really need a special pull-up bar and you have to have lots of swinging room to do the new pull-ups correctly. Also, I think I need to lose another 20 pounds or more to really give P90X2 a chance.
So my new workout plan is going to be an early morning 1 hour run followed by 1 hour walk most days. I’m going to try to get out for a paddle at least twice a week instead of the run/walk. I really want to get my WaterTribe Derby sessions into the 20-mile region.
I’ll do P90X in the afternoon and substitute Rodney Yee Yoga for P90X Yoga. I’ll substitute either a Bas Rutten, Randy Couture Quest, or Krav Maga MMA workout for the P90X Kenpo.
Should be fun and maybe I’ll hit my targets by the EC2013.
