P90X- Legs and Back with Ab Ripper X

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Right. So I'm behind on my blog entries, but I didn't really have time to do this on Thursday or Friday, so here I am.

Thursday was Legs and Back. Let me just say, Whoa. My legs were feeling it about ten minutes in, but I was loving it. I knew that my quads, calves, thighs were getting stronger! Now, the back part of this workout included pull-ups or chin-ups. I do not have a pull up bar. I don't have money as of now to spend 30 bucks on a chin up bar, but I have a resistance band so I use that as a modified chin up bar.

I had to cut my workout into two parts because Thursdays are my busiest day, so I got through 45 minutes of Legs & Back and went to get more stuff done, then afterwards at 8 pm, I came back and finished Legs and Back and did Ab Ripper X.

I still struggle to get through ARX. I can do maybe 5 reps per exercise, not 25! But I'm working my way to it. I set a goal with each exercise and I try to reach that goal whether it's to do 8 or 10 only. I want to make them good reps, not just trying to suffer through with terrible form, doing more harm than good to my body.

Overall, it's a good workout for my busy Thursday.

    I am doing my second round of P90X and I still have little breaks with ARX, so don't worry about only doing 5. As Tony says, do your best and forget the rest!! It'll come!

    Legs & back is the craziest P90X day. I do my workouts in the basement and after that day, walking back up the stairs is so hard haha. Keep working at the abs. The reps will come :)

    Sounds like you're doing a great job and are very motivated! It's good to hear that. You're smart to listen to your body and do less reps with better form. The strength will come. Keep up the good work!
