The P90X Workout for Moms

My husband follows the P90X program. I often watch and listen while he works out, and I have heard them refer to this particular episode... the one my husband does the least... as the "The 'Mother' of all P90X Workouts".  I have asked my husband why he rarely does this workout. His answer: it's mostly for legs and his legs are fine. shhhhh... but I think it's because they call it a workout for moms.

Well, since I was home alone with 3 kids and it was raining, going for a run yesterday or last night was out of the question
but after the comedy-of-errors morning I'd had, I was needing some sort of something to soothe my soul... or something...
So I decided an evening consisting of a casual 'Mom Workout' that focuses on legs was just the ticket to end my day right :)

I figured it'd help clear my head, get a couple of lonely endorphins kickin' around maybe help them find a few friends, be a semi-substitute for the run that was on the schedule...

What is this 'workout for moms'?
it is

Gonna do a lil'

But first I needed some o' this...

I have single-handedly eaten all of that which you see is missing.

After filling my pie-hole with ... well... with pie, I put the kids to bed and suited up.

Time for a lil'

There is a guy in the demonstration group who has a prosthetic leg... meaning he is doing the workout with one leg.  ONE.  I think he can be considered a nail.

It took about 45 minutes to do the workout, including the warm up and the cool down.  It was really hard.  I had the most trouble with the regular jumping jacks... but that is not fitness-related. Remember, I've had 4 kids... next time I just need a pad or something... but only for that exercise. I did my best and left the rest.  Then I needed some more pie.

The P90X Mother's Workout gets my vote.  But... is this cross-training?  I really didn't want to do any cross-training... might wreck my image.  I might start looking ... serious.

Do not forget to vote!  If you haven't heard the news, the competition is really heating up.
Fidel and I are up against a sex addict, a plastified old lady and the flippin' Berenstain Bears!

  1. My brother does P90X and loves it. I've never thought to pick apart different pieces that would work for me! I'm terrible at following new workouts, I always feel silly and I end up giving up halfway through.

  2. I love plyo training. I do it 3 times per week for an hour. Heavy stuff.

    Good on ya!

  3. Love this post! seriously...not just a blanket : "great post" comment. ha ha. I so want to get this. Right now I'm contemplating doing some Jillian and jumping (plyos) when the kids are having quiet time but I'm thinking maybe a good book sounds better after my repeats last night. xo

  4. I really want to get this p90x workout program for the summer! I think when I'm doing stuff like this with less running, my body is way more bikini ready! ha, like I really care about that these days. :) Nobody wants to see these little titties in a bikini anyway.

  5. when my Huz does the plyo part of P90 I fear that the house is going to fall down. The dog gets scared because all we can hear is him leaping around like a maniac upstairs. Grunting.
    I bust out some P90 ab ripper on occasion but that's it for me!
    And.... It is definately x-training!

  6. I'll take pie-o-metrics. rose freaking rocks.

    i want p90.
    real. bad.

  7. I want that pie right now. Girl, you are amazing. I tried P90 but lasted a day. Hard stuff. You are a rockstar!

  8. I have heard a lot about this P90X biznass and don't think I could couit. I could cut that pie, though. Is there any left?

  9. I ate the whole dang pie. By myself. But not all in one sitting ;-)
    It took me 4 days.


we *heart* comments!
