Day 2 – The X

Todays workout was the P90X Cardio X workout. It’s a fairly straightforward, moderately difficult workout – although I found it particularly difficult today. Tony Horton takes you through a sample of different aspects of the P90X cardio/core elements.

  • Yoga movements.

  • 3 Directional Kick
  • Upper-Cuts
  • Two Punch Combo
  • Kick and Punch Combo

Plyo section

  • Swing Kick
  • Circle Run
  • Jump Shot

  • Tire jumps

Core section

  • Squat Run

Cool Down

You’ll have to check out the video to get everything exactly as prescribed by the program. There is some variation in the timing for each exercise and it’s important to see the form in action.

It was a tough workout to begin my workout plan with, but it was a good choice for easing into the intensity level I am used to. It was good to rediscover this workout after so long, and I will definitely revisit it soon.
