Day 72: P90X Plyometrics Too Easy?

Day 72: Plyometrics

Plyometrics seemed like a walk in the park today. I was pushing myself, going faster, and still having trouble keeping my heart rate in my normal zone. When I started P90X, I was up to 185 bpm at my peak. My heart rate has slowly been going down as time goes on and it has been running around 165 bpm in my high zone. Today, I was lucky to push 160-163 bpm. It was a little frustrating. Maybe I am just getting healthier? Maybe I need harder interval training?

Diet went well today. Loving beef jerky as a quick snack.

Tip of the day: As you approach the end of your first round, some of the workouts may start feeling a bit too easy. I call this the cardio plateau. Unfortunately, you can’t just add more weight to cardio exercises. Once you are approaching this plateau, you better start making a plan for round two. Cardio, specifically interval training is the key to a six pack. It is the only way that you are going to melt away that body fat and see definition.

  1. Congratz on day 72! I finished my round of P90X about a year ago and have tried different things since then. I am currently doing Insanity (Day 43) and I can tell you that it makes Plyo X seem like a walk in the park. Even the warm-up in any of the Insanity workouts is more intense than anything Pylo X throws at you. I would definitely recommend Insanity once you are done with P90X. Best of luck!

    • Hi Michael,

      Thanks for the great advice. I know that Insanity is definitely in my future. I just don’t know how soon. I might do another round or P90X or a hybrid first. I definitely want to keep building muscle.

  2. wow you look great 🙂 just wanted to say hi 😉

    • Hi Sena,

      Thank you. It is great to hear from you. I have been wondering where you went. I know things got a little rough, but I hope everything is much better now. Are you still going on your first round? If you took a break, it is never too late to pick it up. Keep in touch!
