Haven’t had that intense of a workout in a while!
P90X – Legs and Back
P90X – Ab Ripper X
Total Time = 80 Minutes
Boom! Big time workout this morning. I’m glad I did the stretch class last night in lieu of yoga. I have always wondered why we do the yoga day before the leg day because that yoga workout usually leads to some pretty sore legs. Also, we do ab ripper x on day 3, then an ab workout with yoga on day 4, then ab ripper x again on leg day. Hmmm… well, I’m not going to argue with the programmers of P90X, but I am allowed to switch things up as I feel are best for me. And I feel that doing yoga on day 7 of the week is a better place for it. I was flexible and loose and ready to work this morning. I pushed myself deeper into the leg exercises than ever before. I was sweating hard and breathing heavy. I worked my legs harder today than probably ever since beginning P90X. And my pull-ups were strong today as well with no other upper body work to cause fatigue. I brought one of my drum thrones down by my chin-up bar today and on each set after I burned out on reps, I threw my feet on the throne so I could keep going. I felt a deeper burn in my back this way… very effective. It was a solid workout and I was toast! But then… it was time for abs. I dug in deep and worked my abs hard today. I was serious at the top when I said this was one of the more intense workouts I’ve had in a while. I am still feeling the after burn and I’ve been done for an hour and a half! I love this feeling. And I love doing workouts like these in the morning… I really do have more in me to complete them and it also feels great having accomplished that before noon. And with that… it is time to eat again and get back to work. I hope you all had a great week and wishing you a beautiful weekend ahead. And here’s my inspirational quote of the day…
