I just finished my P90X workout for the day, Legs & Back, and Ab Ripper X. Today I felt like my mind was somewhere else during the Legs & Back workout. I kept thinking of everything that I needed to do after I finished the workout. I made it through all of the exercises, but I really didn’t push myself all that hard. I hate it when I have days like this!
For the leg exercises I used 20 pound dumbbells for all the exercises that Tony recommends using weight (just like week). During the Single-Leg Wall Squat, I ended up wimping out towards then end and I put my leg down early. I usually don’t do that and I’m normally able to make it all the way to the end. I was just really anxious to get through the workout. I also wasn’t able to get through all of the 80/20 Cyber-Speed Squats. I think next time if I’m feeling super anxious to just “get through” the workout like I was today, then I should probably do what I need to do first, and then do my P90X workout (so then I’m not doing the workout halfway).
The pull-ups didn’t go too bad. I did the same number of reps for the 1st & 2nd sets of the Reverse Grip Chin Ups and for the 1st set of the Wide Front Pull Ups from last week, but I was able to increase by 1 rep for all of the remaining pull ups. Lastly, Ab Ripper X went well today! I did all of the reps and the advanced version of just about all of the exercises like usual (I wasn’t able to do the advanced version for all of the reps with the Leg Climbs).
