Working Out Week 4 of 2014


The end of this week marks the 4th week of 2014 and the 3rd week of doing the P90X3 challenge with my facebook group.  The exercises this week were the same schedule as the past two weeks.  You can read my post on Week 1 of P90X3 here to see the complete schedule for weeks 1 – 3.  

My favorite workouts from the first three weeks were CVX and Isometrix.  I love how CVX uses a light dumbbell throughout most of the 30 minute workout.   It is a great combination of cardio and weight training.  My shy cat decided to get in one of the photos for this workout – see if you can find her below…

Below in the photo I was getting ready to start CVX – listening to the beginning instructions and here is my cat doing his downdog pose.  I thought that was funny.

Isometrix is unlike any type of yoga I have ever done.  In this workout you have to hold the poses for about 45 seconds each.  The downdog with one hand on your ankle is one of the hardest for me to hold that long as well as standing on one foot with your eyes closed and other foot raised up two or three inches off the floor.  It is harder than it sounds – try it.  The day I did this workout it was cold that morning and I was freezing when I woke up so I dressed in my fleece pants to keep warm.  I may not look very fashionable but I was warm.  My black cat decided to participate and get in these photos.  He is quite the workout cat.

I have started reading a new book – along with about 2 other books I am reading (I read a lot) called Success Principles.  In the book I found this great quote and wanted to share it:

Change Yourself

I have written this down and posted it on the wall behind my computer.  I think this is a great reminder that there are certain things we can not change in life and that we have no control over but I believe that our health and fitness is something that each and every one of us can choose to control and take responsibility for.

Overall I am still really enjoying P90X3 and my fun challenge group.  Next week is called the “Transition” week and the schedule changes some.  We are going to be doing some of the same workouts along with two or three new ones.  I will update the end of next week on that schedule.

I am not affiliated with this workout program.  I am just participating with a group and like to share my workouts and hope to inspire others to exercise.

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks April! I just put the camera on the tripod and have the timer set. Sometimes one of my sons will do it if they are up but I am usually up way before them to get my workout in. I’ll check in on Friday.

  3. That quote is so true! I always think about that but I never said it in such a clever way like he did. Looks like you had a great workout. I can see me needing a weight less than what yours was just because I can see those movements getting tough as the workout goes on 🙂 Thanks for sharing this with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured!

    1. Thanks for your comment. The weight I used was only 5 pounds – some in my group tried 8 and said it was way too challenging. I am sticking with 5 – that is enough for me and this routine.
