P90X Lean: Day 7

Woohoo! Day 7!!! I have survived my first week of P90X and I feel GREAT! I was totally dreading it, but I’m in much better shape than I was the last time I tried it. Plus, I’m doing the Lean schedule which seems to be a little less intense.

p90x KenpoX

Today is Kenpo X. Tony Horton touts this routine as being “fun, fun, fun” and he is 100% correct! Kenpo X features a super long warm up (like almost 12 minutes!) but it does a great job of stretching out the hamstrings, calves, and hip flexors. It’s super important to warm up properly before doing so many kicking and punching moves. It would be very easy to pull something if your muscles are cold.

The workout itself is pretty standard. It has a good mix of kicks, blocks, and punches as well as some nice combo moves. The moves are:

  • Twist and Pivot
  • Twist & Pivot w/Hook Uppercut
  • Jabs
  • Jab/Cross
  • Jab/Cross/Hook
  • Jab/Cross/Hook/Uppercut
  • Step Drag Punch High/Low
  • Jab/Cross Switch
  • Hook/Uppercut Switch
  • Knee Kicks
  • Ball Kicks
  • Side Kicks
  • Back Kicks
  • Three Direction Kicks
  • High Sword/Low Hammer
  • Step Drag/Claw/Low Punch
  • High Blocks
  • Inward Blocks
  • Outward Blocks
  • Downward Block
  • Star Blocks
  • High Block/Low Punch
  • Knee/Back Kick
  • Back Knuckle/Ball Kick/Back Kick
  • Hook/Uppercut/Low Side Kick
  • Elbow Series
  • Vertical Punches

I absolutely love this workout! Once you get past the warm up it goes by VERY fast! I feel like I’ve gotten a great workout and I’m covered in sweat!
