P90X Legs and Back Wall Squat
Day 33 of my P90X workout is over! Today I had to do Legs and Back and Ab Ripper X. I think P90X Legs and Back went pretty good today. For all of the leg exercises that Tony recommends using dumbbells, I used dumbbells. I used pretty light weight (only 15 pounds), but that seemed to do the trick because my legs started burning very fast (my legs were burning going up and down the stairs to get to my P90X chin up bar). I think next week I’ll try to up my weight to 20 or 25 pounds to ensure I get that burn again. The wall squats were painful like usual, but I got through them. Also, I wasn’t able to get through all of the reps during the 80/20 Cyber-Speed Squat again, but I pushed for as long as I could.
The pull ups went ok today. My biceps were STILL sore from Back & Biceps on P90X day 31 so that made the pull ups more painful than usual. I was able to add one rep during the Reverse Grip Chin-Ups and during the Wide Front Pull-Ups during the first set. For the remaining pull ups, I did the same number of reps as P90X week 3. Usually I’m able to do add a rep to each set, but my biceps were holding me back today!
Ab Ripper X went great today! I finally made it through while taking only one extended break. I took a short break before the Oblique V-Ups. I probably could have made it through without taking a break, but I wimped out and paused the P90X DVD. I’m thinking Sunday will be the day that I make it through the entire workout without any breaks. It better be the day!!!
I think today was a very successful day of P90X! Tomorrow is Kenpo X so that should be fun!
