I just finished Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps for the last time until round 2 of the P90X workout! I was hoping to push through this workout with lots of energy and excitement (since this is the last week of resistance training), but I was unfortunately pretty tired and struggled to get through the workout. I got a horrible night’s sleep last night (maybe about 4 to 5 hours). It was just one of those nights where I was tossing and turning all night. I got pretty close to pausing the workout and finishing it later, but I decided to keep pushing forward!
While I was doing Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps my wife was in the kitchen cooking some food for the lunch we are having with her family. She kept encouraging me during the workout so that definitely helped keep me going. Despite the lack of sleep and energy, I think I do ok with this workout. I managed to increase my reps from P90X day 64 for a majority of the exercises and I increased my weight to 20 pounds for some of the exercises. During the One-Arm push ups I did 1 push up on each arm (on my knees of course!) and then I figured I’d do some standard push ups. I ended up doing about 12 standard push ups.
Ab Ripper X was pretty tough as well, but got better towards the end. I did the difficult versions of all of the exercises, and I was really feeling the burn! Towards the end of the workout I started feeling good so I pushed out an extra 10 Mason Twists!
I’m going to go try to see if I can get a short nap in before we go over to my wife’s parents’ home! I hope everyone has a great Easter!!!
