P90X Day 20: Kenpo X

Third time’s a charm for Kenpo X.

If you’ve been reading this space, you know I’ve been having a little trouble with Kenpo X. It’s supposed to be a cardio workout, and I’ve been having trouble getting “in the zone”. I finally figured out what I wasn’t doing right, and fixed it today, and got a much better workout. Sadly, it still took me half the workout to figure it out. So, it’s more accurate for me to say that I got a much better half a workout. Still half a loaf is better than none, or so the politicians tell me.

Anyway, as I mentioned before, Kenpo is kind of a kickboxing type workout. And I really swing my arms and legs. It’s not like I’ve been all that half-hearted about it. But, I haven’t been putting the same force behind the movements that I would do if I were actually trying to hit or kick someone. I don’t know why it took me so long to figure that out, and to fix it. But it made a huge difference when I did.

Now, I just have to remember to do that next week.

Tomorrow, X Stretch, and then the “off week”. I’ve looked at the schedule. I don’t think “off” is how I would describe it.
