finished P90X lean...

and i'm definitely burned out on it.  this last week or so has been miserable.

now then, i'm training for a 10k at the end of september. i have short runs during the week (roughly 30 min) then a long run on the weekend.  i'm thinking that i could still manage some of the workouts... which ones would you suggest for upper body?  i might do legs/back once a week, but IDK yet.

i wasn't in love with the upper body workouts due to the pushups, but i don't favor any over another either.  i just can't decide what to do!

Re: finished P90X lean...

  • Congrats on finishing!

    I'm also training for a 10k on 10/12.  I run every other day and try to do 2 to 3 of the upper body videos on my non-running days.

    This will be my 3rd time thru P90X (Classic) - I'm thinking of doing the new program - Insanity - just to switch it up a bit.

  • good job!

    do you really notice results after? i need to get into a good weight routine.

  • Wow, congrats on finishing!  That's awesome!

    I kind of like the Shoulders/Bi/Tri workout from Phase 1.  If I remember correctly, that one doesn't have any pushups.  It's mostly dips, bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, etc.  It also works 3 muscle groups, whereas most of the other ones work only 2.  I guess if I were in your shoes, I might pick that one to do if I wanted upper body work without a crapload of pushups!

    i forgot about that one!  i'm definitely going to do that one, thanks :)

    yes, i did notice results.  i lost inches all over actually.  overall i feel better, my pictures aren't that dramatic but i did have results.  i would've had better results had my eating been on track 100% of the time.

    i will still say though you need to be in decent shape to begin this program.  it's not all about the weight training, it's getting fit overall.
