A Change of Pace & A Little Regret

It’s been a rough week sleep wise. With junior’s infection, disrupted sleep and the heat making it difficult to sleep I’m exhausted. I was actually told that yesterday at a meeting.  They offered to let me sleep in the room for half an hour but I powered on. 

On Wednesday I managed to get through P90X Shoulders and arms keeping my numbers from the following week. Thursday I just did P90X3 yoga. I wasn’t looking forward to 50mins of yoga so I did something a little shorter. P90X3 is good if not a little rushed. You don’t get the isometric holds in yoga but it’s the sense of accomplishment in getting something done that’s important. 

Today I was feeling just as tired and really couldn’t face Legs & Back so I did another swop. It was for RIPT90’s deadlift killer. I’ve never done this one before. Truth is I have never done the whole RIPT90. It was a gift, I did the leg routine before and wasn’t impressed. The pacing was off and there is absolutely no cool down. Deadlift killer wasn’t impressive either. 20 reps of deadlifts, single leg deadlift, stiff leg deadlift, stiff single leg deadlift, sumo deadlift and 25 sit ups. Done for 3 rounds and 50 jump lunges at the end. The cool down was a lift jog followed by a side oblique stretch and nothing else for legs. I just did my own 10 minute cooldown of P90X stretches. Back to the cupboard with RIPT90. P90X you have ruined me for other trainers lol, the bar is set high. 
The other reason for not doing legs and back was my preworkout. It made me feel sick today. The culprit was Real Pharm Unreal Blue Sky flavour. What was left of the tub is now binned. 

So the little regret today is not that I worked out it was choice of programme. Deadlift killer was 38 minutes plus my 10 minute cooldown leaving it 10 mins short of Legs and Back. I should have stuck with legs and back. 

Also as this week has been a write off I will be repeating it. I will finish it off with P90X Kenpo Cardio tomorrow and then X Stretch on Sunday. Life happens folks, kids get sick, we get a poor week of sleep and the nutrition slips. I won’t let it get me down. I will repeat and go from there. 

Hopefully the sun is shining with you and you are able to enjoy it. Weather is going to break here after today so this evening it’s off to the beach for some ice cream and fun. 

See you in a few days
