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.
