I decided to add some more intensity during my second round of P90X while I wait for Asylum to arrive.
I am on my first recovery week of my second round of P90X (Week 4) after I had a break of around 3 month. While it was tough to start again I have seen improvements much faster then on my first round. I also started with 4kg weights instead of 1kg and am doing Kenpo X with ankle weights and little added weights in my hands as well (still can’t find weighted gloves :(). I lost pretty much all definition in my abs and even ended up having a little belly but after just three weeks everything is gone and my abs are starting to show again. (One of the biggest motivators after really struggling through the first and second week after the longish break).
I recently got a copy of Brazil Butt Lift and decided to combine it with my P90X classic routine. This means I am getting up around 7am, do the Brazil Butt Lift routines (for my pear shaped booooooty) and once back from work, the normal P90X Schedule in the evening before dinner. My butt and upper thigh areas are my weakest spot strength wise. After my health issues with my legs I started to bend down and round my back instead of using my legs to pick something up which in turn led to my legs being the weakest part. Brazil Butt Lift REALLY works on my weak areas (which I notice because I really have a hard time doing some of the exercises despite being both a P90X and Insanity graduate).
So far it goes really well. Brazil Butt Lift is a lot of fun and the routines are short which is perfect for morning workouts.
I added some goofy pictures Henning took without me realizing (I am always super focused and pretty much forget everything around me while working out – a result of me trying almost religiously to maintain proper form and intensity, thus the weird poses and faces!).
The Brazil Butt Lift shots are from the “Cardio Axe” Routine – basically my stiff self trying to do some samba dance moves (and no, there will be no video. Even I have my limits when it comes to making a fool out of myself ;)).
