#Fitness Friday: P90X3 Review and Starting Measurements

I started P90X3 officially this week. Here are my measurements and before picture:

Weight: 172.8
Chest: 37.3"
Bicep: 12.3"
Thighs: 24.8"
Waist: 34.6"
Calf: 17.3"
Hips: 42.3"

So far I have caught up to what I missed last week except for one workout which I am doing tomorrow. I am LOVING the 30 minute workouts! They are HARD and extremely quick! I feel my body changing with these workouts. P90X was good too, but I feel like it wasn't this effective. There were alot of breaks in the workouts and less hustle. These 30 minute workouts have me trying to keep up! They also work the WHOLE body instead of just a group at a time. I think that makes it less monotonous.

Total Synergistics in P90X3 is a great workout for core and balance. I am still working on these two things. I am hoping that this will improve as I continue to do these exercises. I have a 6 pack threatening to come out from under the fat left on my middle. 

Yoga X3 was more of the balance and added flexibility to the mix. Which I am not as great at either. This is another workout I am hoping that I will improve on as I continue to move through the program. 

Agility X is a fast paced cardio and plyometric workout. I can keep up on this one but I think that I will put the tape on the floor with the Xs that he has in the video to see if I can do the moves more accurately. This one is alot of fun. I think it is interesting that he has the modifier "Beyoncify" the moves instead of the more difficult plyometric moves. That pretty much means to shake your butt for a little break instead of jumping around. 

The Challenge is an upper body workout. It is focused on push-ups and pull-ups. When you get done, your arms are jello. I am particularly excited about this one because I want to improve my upper body strength. 

The Warrior is the workout that Tony Horton does at military bases all over the world. It is a total body workout that uses only body weight. It is fast paced and I thought I was going to die halfway through! There is alot to be said for this workout. I really like it and hate it at the same time!

CVX is a cardio routine. I have not tried this one yet but I am looking forward to it. All of the workouts so far have been so amazing! I love any program that has me sweating and ready for a nap afterward. 

I was scheduled tonight to do a 9 mile run and I could only push out 4 miles. My knees weren't having it. I need to get more Joint Juice. I used to drink it alot when I first started running. I think my body has already gone on vacation before I actually have. I will be gone next week in Florida with my husband at Disney. I am extremely excited! Maybe it's my body just yearning to be there now instead of running. 

I am going to be doing a Shakeology Sampler Giveaway starting April 1st. The prize will be a Shakeology Shaker Cup and 3 samples of different flavors of Shakeology. This is a great chance to try an amazing product for free. Shakeology is a great breakfast that I like to use as an after workout shake or as I am running out the door in the morning. It has all the vitamins and minerals you need everyday. Check out this video with Tony Horton Shakeology Ingredients.  You can enter the giveaway at the podcast Facebook page. The link is at the top of my blog.

One of the best specials that Beachbody has going on right now is The Beachbody Ultimate Reset. It is a comprehensive, no-starvation, inner-body tune-up that offers much more than the typical cleanse and detox programs on the market. The Ultimate Reset not only helps you eliminate toxins and waste gently and naturally, but it also maximizes your cellular energy production, helping your body process food more efficiently and your systems run more smoothly.

You’ll replace the processed foods you’ve been eating with healthy foods. You’ll eat cleanly — possibly for the first time in your life — and take supplements designed to help your body remove from your cells and organs toxins that you’ve been taking in for decades. You can join thousands of Coaches and customers during the "Spring Cleaning with Carl and Isabelle" as they do the Ultimate Reset starting Wednesday, April 16th! Contact me or go to for details.

As I said before, I will be out of town next week so I will not have a #Fitness Friday Blog next week. There is also a new episode of H.E.L.P up on Stitcher, iTunes, and Blubrry. The new episode has tons of info from healthy food prep to personal growth with a great book. Please check it out and give me some feedback on what we are doing right and even what you want to see us improve on. We are always up for topic suggestions as well.
