I just finished my P90X workout for the day, Shoulders and Arms and Ab Ripper X! Today I did Ab Ripper X first before doing Shoulders and Arms. Ab Ripper X went great like usual!! I really feel like I’ve got this workout down for the most part. I do the advanced version of all the exercises so now I’m just focusing on flexing my abs as hard as I can and improving my form (keeping my legs straight and as high as possible, etc.).
There is no doubt that my shoulders and biceps will be sore tomorrow from Shoulders and Arms! I increased my weight to 30 pounds during some of the shoulder and tricep exercises as well as increased the number of reps I did for all the remaining exercises. I increased my weight to 30 pounds during the first and second set of the Alternating Shoulder Presses, and during the first set of the Two-Arm Tricep Kickbacks and the Upright Rows. My shoulders were burning like crazy throughout the workout, and they are already starting to feel sore.
During the Static Arm Curls, I almost made it through both sets doing the 16 reps with 25 pounds dumbbells. I did all 16 reps for the first set, but then during the second set I did 15 reps. That’s a major improvement though from P90X day 59 when I was only able to do 8 reps during the last set.
Yoga might be tough tomorrow depending on how sore my shoulders are, but I’ll suck it up and do my best! Well, I’m off to go eat an early dinner!
