Wowy is what they say on the Beachbody.com web site and in all the DVD’s of the P90X routine. Today was a day where you need to be prepared to do battle. Yes, I worked really hard during recovery week, but coming back into muscle building doing Chest, Shoulders and Triceps was brutal. I pushed and I pushed until I blew myself down. These exercises were killer. Many I’ve never seen before which made it that much better. By the way, this is not a complaint this is me telling you people just starting out to be prepared after recovery weeks, because Tony Horton knows how to roll.
Pike Press was a nice feature I’ve never done before, but the one armed push ups were just super sets if you ask me. There were plenty of tricep extensions as well. Finding the right weight for some of these exercises was tough, so of course I wrote down what I did and made notes for next time. I was supposed to pick up some new dumbbells at Dick’s sporting goods this weekend, but the kids were a little anxious to go home, so I’ll have to go out this week and get them.
Let’s not forget good ole AB Ripper X. This thing crushed me again. I did feel some improvements on a few of the exercises some I was still struggling. Mason twists are crazy fun at the end. Plyometrics and Day 30 pictures tomorrow, so we’ll see you on the flip side.
Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous
