Jump Jump

Day 2 of P90X: Plyometrics is done.

This exercise video consist of a lot of jumping. Jumping squats, jumping lunges, jumping puddles, high knee jumping and any other variation of jumping that you can think of. I think (hope) that this will help me with my running! My knees were definitely feeling it, which is due to the fact that there are a lot of jumping movements, but also because they simply aren’t used to it.

This was the part when I wanted to curl up on the couch and watch Gilmore Girls.

Can we just talk about how un-coordinated I am? Some exercises require brain power + fancy foot coordination. Okay, so my left foot goes here while my right hand does this and then I jump back and put my right hand to the left side and then… what? I should have done this video in high school. It could have helped my moves out on the dance floor!

{You know, Nelly after football game dances. You went to those, right??}

This is my sweet Joshua watching me exercise. He loves it!

I didn’t do the warm up which nicely shaves about 4-5 minutes off the total time. I feel like running around and picking up kids all day is a good enough warm  up. At least when I’m short on time and need to finish a workout before nap time is over, I might have to cut the warm up and cool down portion short.

Day Two Completed.

High five.

  1. Great job on P90x it looks awful! I hate jumping, whenever there is jumping in a movie I opt to just watch in wonder! haha I love the Gilmore Girls! And its great that your little one likes to watch you work out! Both of mine cried the whole time, that's why I joined a gym with daycare!
