Ah yes, P90X3 Day 3 X3 Yoga. I think before we dig into my Day 3 review, all of us who did P90X need to be honest about something. P90X Yoga X was HARD and way too long (do you agree with me)? While most P90X workouts were 1 hour long, Yoga X was a painstaking 1 hour and 30 minutes long.
And what should we be honest about here? Well, the consistency of SKIPPING P90X Yoga X. If you’ve done P90X before, c’mon….you know you skipped it once, twice, 13 times!
Will P90X3 X3 Yoga be the same? After all, it is just 30 minutes per workout. I’ll explain how I feel in just a moment. First, let me get to my P90X3 Day 3 X3 Yoga review!
P90X3 Day 3 X3 Yoga – My Fitness Journey Review
So far I love P90X3. After completing Total Synergistics and Agility X, I’m sorer than I (think) I’ve ever been with P90X. I’ve started growing a new love for being sore. The reason I have this love is that I know that a few things are happening:
- My muscles are growing
- I’m BRINGING IT in my P90X3 workouts
- I’m improving my life!
After my soreness from the first two days, I was happy to dive into Yoga to stretch and work on my ever-so “in need of improvement” balance.
With P90X3 Day 3 X3 Yoga, you will complete a lot of the Yoga moves from the original P90X. But, I find that they go much faster, are more focused, and don’t take 1 ½ hours (High Five anyone?)
The type of Yoga that is performed in X3 Yoga is Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga moves (for any Yoga fans out there). Moves in X3 Yoga include:
- Warrior 1, 2 and Reverse Warrior
- Crow (similar to the old Crane move)
- Upward Dog
- Downward Dog
One of the biggest suggestions I have for those on P90X3 Day 1 X3 Yoga, is to focus on taking it slow to improve your balance. If you are like me, and sometimes stumble and fumble during the moves, I really take it slow and focus my energy on the muscles that are supporting me (quads, core, etc).
I think the reason people hate Yoga so much is because it’s tough. It’s tough because it is enhancing your muscle balance (and this is why I kick myself when I realize how much I used to skip the original Yoga X).
P90X3 Day 3 X3 Yoga – Nutrition
Nutrition continues to go well. I fluctuate between 2400-2700 calories per day. Today I did not take my Pre-Workout and Post-Workout supplements (E&E and P90X Results and Recovery Formula). The reason being is that Yoga doesn’t always burn as many calories as doesn’t require as much power as the other days require. I will pick up these supplements again tomorrow for P90X3 “The Challenge!”
