P90X Day 18: Yoga X

Since when does a yoga workout make you sweat enough to need a shower? Since it’s the P90X yoga workout.

Actually, I don’t have much to say tonight. If you tend to think of yoga as that thing where you turn yourself into a pretzel, then stand on one foot and go “ohhhmmmm”, then you definitely need P90X. Now, don’t get me wrong. There are poses where you turn yourself into a pretzel, and plenty of poses where you stand on one foot. And yes, Tony wants you to “ohhhmmm” at the end (I don’t—it doesn’t work for me, but that’s just me). But this yoga is just as much of a workout as the other six days of the week.

To be honest, one of the long standing complaints about P90X from many is that it doesn’t do enough yoga. That’s one of the things they changed with P90X2, from what I hear. I guess I’ll find out at some point. Maybe. Let me get through the next 72 days before I make any P90X2 plans, please.

It was nice to get through the workout. 4 days down now in week 3. Week 4 is supposed to be a “Rest & Recovery Week”. Sadly, that doesn’t mean sitting on the couch eating potato chips. No, it’s two days of Yoga X, two days of X Stretch, one day of Kenpo X, and two days of a new workout called Core Synergistics. Sounds like next week will be just about as hard as a regular week. And week 5 gets even worse.

Yippee! Looking forward to it. Legs & Back, and my friend, Ab Ripper X, tomorrow.
