Round 10, P90X3, Days 26 – 30: Feeling Kinky


block2Milestone: Into Block 2, and one-third done with this round.

For the past several days I’ve been feeling a bit kinky. Specifically, in my neck. I’m not exactly sure what brought it on. Probably going into plow pose too quickly. Over the weekend, I did some extra foam rolling of my T-Spine, which has helped. It’s almost fully resolved.

We also experienced some terrific weather over the weekend, so I took advantage and each day went on a fast 5.5 mile hike, with some jogging, down by the river. It was good to get out and move with pace.

Because of all the walking, I again switched out my rest Dynamix routine in favor of the Tai Cheng Neural Reboot 4. This does a much better job for me facilitating recovery for tight legs. Plus, I had that kink in the neck.

This week I started the second block of P90X3 and a series of new routines. Eccentric Upper was a good upper body workout, where you extend the muscles slowly and then quickly contract. I kept the weights fairly low as I learned the moves. I was really humbled on the various pull ups where you go negative on a three count and then pull up for ten reps. I wasn’t able to get to ten reps on several of the pull ups moves. But the routine was very effective: I am feeling it today.

So I was still quite achy as I started up today’s Triometrics routine. It’s a plyo workout, where each move has three progressively more difficult versions. I enjoyed this one, and thought the instructions helped me better with my form than some of the other P90X3 routines I’ve done so far.
