P90X Classic Day 2

P90x Workout: Plyometrics

  • Equipment Used: none

Plyometrics is not part of the P90X Lean Routine. It is substituted by the lighter impact Cardio X routine. I tried Plyometrics just for kicks before I buckled down on the actual 90 day program and I failed miserably. That was actually part of the reason I chose to start with the Lean routine.

Again, I have never experienced a workout like this before. I was hurting after the first 20 minutes. Tony does admit at the beginning of the workout that Plyometrics is slightly higher impact and may not be for everyone. I quit halfway through the workout. Now however, after completing the P90X Lean Routine, to my surprise I successfully made it through the entire workout without completely gassing out! I took a few breaks but it didn’t break me like the first time I did it. This reassured me that I was experiencing results from the P90X exercise program.

So far, I haven’t experience any smoking or alcohol cravings either. Good stuff. Day 2 complete.
