P90X Day 57 Completed: Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X

P90X Chest and Back

P90X Chest and Back

WOW! I almost forgot how intense the Chest and Back workout was! Today is day 57 of my P90X workout, and I just finished Chest and Back and Ab Ripper X. The Chest and Back workout went great! Even though I’m still not 100% (I’ve been fighting some kind of cold or something), I gave this workout my all and made some pretty good improvements from week 3 of P90X. Depending on the exercise, I was able to add 1 to 5 more reps to each set. Also, for the Heavy Pants, Lawnmowers, and the Back Flys, I used 30 pound dumbbells instead of the 25 pound dumbbells I used during week 3.

I was able to add the most reps during the beginning of the workout, and as the workout progressed I was able to add less and less reps since I was getting tired. By the time I got to the second set of the Diamond Push-Ups, my arms, back, and chest were exhausted! The last few reps were extremely hard and it got to the point where I couldn’t push myself up anymore. I know I’ll definitely be feeling this tomorrow!

Ab Ripper X went great, but it was super hard today! I guess it was so hard because it’s been awhile since I’ve done this workout, and I’m still getting over being sick. I pushed through the pain and I still managed to do all of the reps. I also did the difficult version of all of the moves except for the Leg Climbs (like usual).

Overall, I think today was a great start to Phase 3 of P90X!

Nutrition for today-

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

Mid-Morning: Whole wheat English Muffin with a little bit of natural peanut butter and grape jelly.
