Day 12 Focus T25 and P90X3

Lower Focus/Ab Intervals and Pilates X

Focus T25 Lower Focus/Ab Intervals (moving to tomorrow)

So I was meant to cover two sessions today, but alas not enough time and not enough energy.  I woke up, and already hungry I decided I just would not be able to focus on the workout properly.  Finished off the morning session, had my protein shake and that was it.  The workout  is crazy! So it’s called Lower Focus, I wonder what that covers?! You guessed it, lower body. It’s pretty tough though.  I had a bit of a problem with the calf raises, as my Achilles started playing up again. So I have to be honest, it was difficult for me.  A number of times you would have found be grabbing my knees and trying to catch my breath. The number of squats he makes you do will have your Quads burning!  The lunges do not help with this either!! But here is the list, and you can see what I had to go through…

P90X3 Pilates X

This was my evening session. This one is now a firm favourite of mine. Like he says you can put this DVD on at any time.  I agree, I can see myself using this DVD even after the P90X3 blocks are completed.Not much else to say other than, hip flexors are still tight, so I still can’t do much with the leg raises, but I give it my best.  Stretch and Flexibility will be the goal towards the end of this!

Is anyone else out there having a hard time with the final move in Pilates X?

Saw this, and thought “what a great quote”…

This is how you should feel after every workout!
