I’m on day 3 of my P-90x workout routine and everything is going good so far. I’m still motivated and I hope to stay motivated all the way to the last day. My body is in a little pain but nothing too serious that will slow me down, it’s normal at this stage to feel some pain. But I make sure that I stretch before my work-out, after my work-out, and before bed. It helps to prevent my muscle from feeling tense in the morning when I get out of bed.
Today I will be focusing on SHOULDERS, ARMS, ABS. Please make sure that you stretch first, very important. Without further a due it’s time to get rocking!
Resting Heart Rate:
53 beats per minute.
