Just completed Day 73 of P90X – Plyometrics (also called Jump Training).
Tony Horton (P90X instructor) calls Plyometrics “the Mother of all P90X workouts.” I agree.
In terms of a solid cardiovascular workout nothing else in the P90X series competes with Plyo – it’s 60 minutes of sweating and pushing.
Workouts are broken into 4 sets….the first three are 30 seconds each and the fourth set is typically 60 seconds…..then you repeat all 4 sets and take a 30 second break, which really isn’t a break because by the time you walk over to your water there is 15 seconds left….you lift the water bottle to your mouth and there is 10 seconds left – at that point Tony is already discussing what’s next and boom…..you’re back at it…..with water dripping down your face mixing with intense perspiration.
BTW – one of the benefits of Plyometrics is that is definitely carries over to everyday life. It’s gives you a bit of gitty in your step…..and if you have young kids like me it gives you the energy and boost to keep up…and even tire them out.
27 days left. Bring it!
