I did one video of p90x, the core synergistic workout. Which it is no secret that my abs are non existant and my hip flexors have grown significantly less flexible than my younger days ( I will be 28 next week! yikes) There were a handful of exercises that I couldn't physically figure out how to do since I lack the strength. I have done one month of p90x before and don't remember it being as challenging as it is now. But I digress, I actually thought that the workout was wasted on me because I was unable to do 1/4 of the workouts.
Oh, how I was wrong. My ab muscles are still sore 4 days later.
I had full intentions of squeezing the workouts all week but life got a bit busy, so I will be officially starting next Monday.
On Thursday I decided to try out a free kickboxing class at LA boxing. Aside from yoga and an occasional spinning class, kickboxing is the only other class that I really enjoy and my YMCA doesn't offer any. LA boxing is a lot different than my YMCA class anyhow. While it's an intense workout, it's not nearly as much fun. They have heavy bags and tape up your hands and give you boxing gloves. ( I have a thing about my hands being hot and it making me feel overheated,strange I know, but I don't like boxing cloves)
The class was definitely a great workout, but for a $99 dollar registration fee and 74 bucks a month for a yearly contract seems outrageous. So for now, I'll remain a loyal YMCA member.
It was definitely fun trying new things, and I've created an organized calendar to combine p90x with my early marathon training starting next week with a touch of flexibility for life to get involved.
Has any one else completed p90x while training for a marathon?
