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.
