P90X Day 66 Completed: Back & Biceps, Ab Ripper X

WOW!!! The Back & Biceps P90X workout killed me! I just finished the workout, and my biceps and back are already starting to feel sore! I really enjoy this workout and I was expecting to make huge gains (I was probably a little over optimistic), but I ended up struggling to pump out the same number of reps as I did on P90X day 45. I guess that is to be expected though since I haven’t done this workout in over 2 weeks. This last Phase of P90X is all about muscle confusion and maximizing your results.

I ended up being able to add 1 or more reps to all of the Lawnmower (including the Row & Fly exercises) and the pull up variations with the exception of the Corn Cob Pull Ups. The Corn Cob Pull Ups are really tough! I did 5 reps, which is the same number I did during week 7 of P90X. For the different variations of curls, I added a rep to the all of the curl exercises up until the One-Arm Concentration Curls. That’s the point where I basically stayed at the same number of reps for the remaining curl exercises. I did however add another rep to the Crouching Cohen Curls and the One-Arm Corkscrew Curls. Prior to starting those exercises I had to pause the P90X DVD for a short break.

Even though I wasn’t able to push out more reps for all of the exercises, I still think I got a great workout. It’s all about the intensity level of the last few reps, and that intensity was definitely there! Also, Ab Ripper X went great like usual! I got my wife to do Ab Ripper X with me today so I of course had to push even harder!
