P90X Day 38 Completed: Back & Biceps, Ab Ripper X

P90X Ab Ripper X Seated Crunchy Frog

I just finished Ab Ripper X and Back & Biceps! I did Ab Ripper X first today because I knew Back & Biceps would be an intense P90X workout. I probably wouldn’t have been able to give Ab Ripper X my all if I did it second. Ab Ripper X went pretty good today. My legs are extremely sore from Plyometrics on P90X day 37 so the In & Out, Seated Bicycle, and the Seated Frog were pretty painful since I had to hold my legs up. Also, during the Fifer Scissor I did drop my left leg down for a second, which is something that I usually don’t do.

Back & Biceps was intense just like last week! I feel like I did do better though. Last week I started out with 25 pound dumbbells, and I went all the way down to 15 pound dumbbells. Today I started out with 30 pound dumbbells (only used 30’s for the Lawnmowers), and I went down to 15 pound dumbbells only for the Strip-Set Curls. After the Lawnmowers, I used the 25 pound dumbbells, and I used those until about the halfway point of the workout. I then used 20 pound dumbbells for the remaining exercises. For some of the exercises my reps did decrease, but that was due to the increased weight.

Also, I did the Strip-Set Curls correctly today. I initially tried to use the 30 pound dumbbells for the first set, but my arms were just too tired. I ended up using 25 pound dumbbells for 2 sets, went down to 20 pounds, and then down to 15 pounds. I was only able to do all 8 reps for the 20 & 15 pound dumbbells. I really enjoy this P90X workout, and I know I’m going to be feeling this tomorrow!
