Day 2 of P90: Cardio/Sweat
So day 2 began with power yoga. Power Yoga?!! Do the Irish even have moves like this? Well they do but it’s probably after a few pints, but then it’s just called falling down.
So the hero has a new enemy and Power Yoga is its name. The Dr. Doom of exercises because you have to think about what you’re doing. It’s not a knock down drag out fight that you can just bull yourself through. You’ve got to move slow, think about it and stretch yourself both mentally and physically. It was like I needed to stretch like Mr. Fantastic but I was built more like the Thing. (Pics are provided below for those of you who don’t have a background knowledge of the Fantastic Four).
Once the yoga was over (thank Vishnu!), The cardio began, and it was a good workout. My legs were tired by the end and I was definitely sweating. It reminded me of promotion night, but there was no Mr. B cracking wise from the front of the room telling us to do 100 more front kicks.
The routine ended with Horton’s 10 minute Ab-ripper. 10 exercise, 10 reps, 10 mintues. Ouch, ouch and ouch! For me half the battle is understanding the movement since most of the blood has left my brain and I feel like someone needs to draw me a flip book diagram of the exercise. By the end I felt good; I know that I’m capable of attempting all of them and completing half of them.
Tomorrow is back to the circuit. I might try bands tomorrow instead of the free weights.
