I have been sporadically doing P90X with Ryan. I have enjoyed what I have done, but I'm not very good at some of it. For example, I cannot for the life of me do a jumping jack. (You do them during a break time in the karate workout.) I swear I could do them as a child, but it seems to be a talent I have lost. My left foot doesn't want to "jump" out for anything. It stays in the center and basically almost picks up off the floor. I look pretty ridiculous with my arms flailing and only my right leg kicking out. Mastering a jumping jack should be my next project.
Last week, after watching me struggle with the cursed jumping jack, Ryan politely said to me, "Uhhh....you know this program is kind of, sort of designed for people who are already in sort of decent shape." Now, even though he said it politely, I did smack him and call him a creep. I know I'm not in great shape, but I didn't need him pointing it out. Plus, I don't think you necessarily have to be in shape to do a jumping jack. I think you just have to be slightly coordinated. I thought I was, but apparently not. I reluctantly agreed something different was needed. Some of the P90X workouts are crazy hard and I don't think I would ever be able to do them.
I'm starting this program today. I think it will fit me a little better.
