P90X Reverse Grip Chin-up

Today is day 12 of my P90X workout! I just completed Ab Ripper X and Legs & Back. I did Ab Ripper X first, then I took a short break, and I completed Legs & Back. I definitely feel like I’ve made some major progress with the Ab Ripper X workout. Since I was able to get through the Fifer Scissor and the Mason Twist without stopping on P90X Day 10 (I did however pause the P90X DVD for a short break prior to starting them), I felt like I had to do better than that. So today I pushed through all of the beginning exercises, pushed through Fifer Scissor (did all reps, without taking a break prior), pushed through Hip Rock ‘N Raise, and then I took a short break after Hip Rock N’ Raise. I continued doing the exercises and I took another break prior to starting the Oblique V-Ups. I then did the Oblique V-Ups, and I of course had to take one more break prior to the Mason Twist. I was able to push through all 50 reps again. Maybe on Sunday I will be able to get through Ab Ripper X with only 2 breaks?!?

P90X Legs & Back was a whole different story. I feel like I’m getting better at the pull ups (I added 1-2 reps for the different pull up exercises), but I feel like I didn’t do so hot on the leg exercises. I made the stupid mistake of not writing down my numbers for the leg exercises this week and last week (there are no spaces on the P90X worksheet to write them and it specifically says only to write down the pull ups) so I guess I really don’t know how I did. I’m going to write down what I remember from this week, and next week I am definitely going to write my numbers down.

However, I still know that I didn’t do my best. The leg exercises are very painful for me because my legs are super weak. I honestly didn’t push myself as hard as I could have. I just need to stop making excuses on why my legs are so weak and why I can’t do an exercise, and I just need to push through the pain. I also need to give 100% to the leg exercises just like I do with the back exercises. I guess I need to remember that pain is just weakness leaving the body!!!

Breakfast: Bowl of Fiber One cereal, and a protein shake.

Also, after my P90X workout I had a protein shake. I can’t wait for my P90X Recovery drink to come in! It really does seem to help me recover faster from the workouts and it tastes great.

Well, I’m off to watch The Biggest Loser! My wife LOVES the show and she got me into it. It’s a really great show and will definitely help keep you motivated. For everyone who is doing P90X, great work and keep pushing play!!
