P90X Classic Day 26

P90X Workout: Core Synergistics

I redeemed myself after my lack luster performance of Core Synergistics last Tuesday. Maybe I just needed to get back into the grove of doing the workout. Not only did I not completely gas out, but I performed a few moves better than I have ever done.

  • I was able to complete Walking Push Ups without putting my knees on the floor the entire time
  • Plank to Chaturanga Run: Typically I would stay in plank run, but I felt pretty randy this time and attempted Chaturanga Run. To my surprise, I was able to do it! Given I wasn’t able to do it the entire time, being able to at least attempt the move with good form was a win for me. The entire time I was on P90X Lean, I had a mental block that I couldn’t do this move. You never know if you can do something until you try. Do your best and forget the rest! For shizzle.
