First lift with new stretch bands and rockin’!
P90X – Shoulders and Arms
Total Time = 64 Minutes
The other day we picked up some new resistance bands. I had just burned through another one and it was time to step up. We found a pretty cool band system that actually comes with 3 equal bands at 30lbs of resistance each. You can attach 1, 2, or all 3… 30, 60, or 90 lbs. of resistance options. I put on all 3… and didn’t look back. 🙂
I powered hard through this workout. The new bands definitely made a difference as it felt like I was lifting heavier. So I really got to feel the extreme of this workout. Even with the heavier bands though, I still could have used even more on some of the exercises. But this was definitely an improvement and the gym workouts will allow the true heavy lifting, as I am striving to do more and more of that these days.
I left out AB Ripper X today because I did it yesterday instead. I feel quite good right now. My arms and shoulders definitely got worked today. And if you’re keeping score, today was officially workout 80 of 90 of this 2nd round of P90X! Whoo hoo! Although on this 2nd round, I not only have been swapping in gym days which has caused the official count to take longer on P90 workouts, but at this point, I’ve completely gone AWOL from the exact program breakdown. I’m still doing the workouts in similar orders and groupings, but I have really changed it up a lot as I feel that right now my body needs more focus on heavier weight training. I will knock out 10 more P90 workouts… not sure which ones yet. It will probably take more than 10 days as I am sure to hit the gym a few times as well. But, I will finish what I have started and then re-asses how my workout structure will go. Stay tuned! And have a great night!
