P90X One Arm Push Ups
It is day 64 of my P90X workout and I just completed Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, & Ab Ripper X! It felt great to do my workout today especially after all the crap I ate this weekend during my Coast Guard drills! Today I made sure to take in plenty of calories prior to my workout to prevent a repeat of P90X day 36 (which is the last time I had my Coast Guard drills and when I totally crashed from a lack of energy).
The Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps workout went great today! This is definitely a tough workout with lots of different exercises, but I did my best! I increased the number of reps from Week 7 during just about all of the exercises and I also increased the amount of weight on some of the exercises. Can anyone do the One Arm Push Ups (without being on your knees)? I struggle with that exercise and even on my knees I’m only able to push out 2-3. It seems to take a lot of balance to do One-Arm Push Ups because you have to shift your body in a weird way in order to go down. It’ll be an exciting day when I can do at least one or two One Arm Push Ups!!!
Ab Ripper X went great like usual so not much to report there! I’m already starting to feel some soreness in my triceps and shoulders, so I definitely think I got a good workout today! Well, I’m going to go so I can get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather!
