I have been progressing through the P90X program.  Not really religiously, I have left out a lot of the aerobics pieces because I get a ton of that in my Tri training, but today was Yoga day.

Tony Horton, the MC on the DVD workouts, (who is absolutely ripped btw) says that the X in P90X is for extreme.  Well I say the X in Yoga X is for excruciating.  It is a 90 minute workout.  I would have to say that for about 60 of those minutes I was in pain.  Don’t take that the wrong way.  The other 30 weren’t a cake walk, those were just minutes spent falling over and taking a break.  At about the 45 minute point I thought, that’s it I’m out, but then he said, ok kids the hard part is over.  I thought, oh good, I’ll keep going.  Just so you know, he said that again about 3 times in the next 45 minutes.  I think I sweat about as much doing Yoga as I had in any of the other workouts.  Brutal!

All in all it was a good workout, however, and my muscles felt really stretched.   I’m pretty happy with the program!
