P90X Day 75 Completed: Legs and Back, Ab Ripper X

P90X Legs and Back Grouch Walk

P90X Legs and Back Grouch Walk

I just finished my P90X workout for the day! Today I had to do Legs and Back and Ab Ripper X. I did the workouts back-to-back with no break and I was exhausted once I finished Ab Ripper X! I know I definitely got a great workout from P90X today!

By the time I got to the Alternating Side Lunges during Legs and Back I was struggling to catch my breath! I’m not sure what it was today that wore me out so much! I guess it was because the exercises in Legs and Back move very quickly, and you’re doing one exercise right after the other with no break. After the Alternating Side Lunges I did take a short break just to catch my breath before I moved on to the Closed Grip Overhand Pull Ups. Today I used the 25 pounds dumbbells again during all of the exercises that Tony Horton recommends using weight. Since next week is basically the last week of the hardcore P90X workouts, I think I’m going to have to step it up and use 30 pound dumbbells.

For the pull up exercises I increased by one rep for all exercises during both sets with the exception of the Reverse Grip Chin Ups. During the Reverse Grip Chin Ups, I did the same number of reps that I did on P90X day 68. The pull up exercises is another reason I got so out of breath today. I’m now at a point where I’m doing 15 reps for all sets with the exception of the Reverse Grip Chin Ups (during the Reverse Grip Chin Ups I’m doing 16 reps and then 15 reps). I push the reps out pretty quickly and they always get my heart rate going.

Ab Ripper X was a lot harder today especially after doing Legs and Back immediately before it. I was really struggling to hold my legs up during the Fifer Scissors! I almost let my foot hit the ground, but I managed to hold it up. It felt great to finish Ab Ripper X so I could relax!

Well, I’m off to go eat some dinner! For everyone doing P90X, keep giving the workouts your all!
