Hurts So Good

Woo hoo!  Only 89 more days of P90x to go!  There are a lot of push ups.  I’ve decided not to say, “I’m a girl.  I can’t do all these push ups.”  Instead I’m going to figure out how to do push ups.  Yay me!  Not “girl” push ups.  P90x doesn’t have any “girl” push ups.  Let’s just say there was a lot of planking during the push up portions of the workout.  Planking is good for you, right!?  Okay, some of the planking was face contact with the floor planking, but not that much.  Give me a break!  It was my first day!

And today, I’m a little sore, but good sore, not “I can’t move my arms” sore.  Just enough to feel all those core muscles I worked yesterday, and that was a lot of muscles.  Who knew I had so many?

  1. Hey Kate! Little tip that I used to give when I taught fitness classes for when the pushups get too hard (I have to do this in Max 30 sometimes). To help you get the benefit (because knee pushups don’t do much for your arms), do the pushups on an incline. Your body is straight, but your hands are on the couch, or a chair, or the 2nd to last stair on your staircase, etc. It really helps you build your strength!
