P90X Day 47 Pull Up Workout

Today was legs and back. After a week of sub-par workouts, I was finally able to bring it. It’s been a tough week stress wise for sure. This workout was dedicated to that stress, more like an attack on the stress. I really used to hate leg workouts, but this one makes it so much more fun then going to the gym and doing squats. Not that I ever really did that either. This Legs and Back routine really shows p90x results as you move through this program. From looking at my worksheets, it’s amazing how many more repetitions I’m getting since the first day.

When a good workout is clipping you know it after the first 10 minutes. Today, I knew it after I did 19 reverse chin ups in the first set. The whole time I was writing down 1-3 reps more than my last time. My theory behind this is when I was only getting 5-10 in the first few weeks, I would use a heavy band and super set the back exercise right after I did the pull ups. This is really starting to pay its dividends. Although the support of the chair is nice, I like to get really good form with the bands later on in the set. If someone asks me if I would recommend it, my answer would be Hell Yea.

The only thing that was slacking a bit was AB ripper X. This thing is still my thorn right now. Working hard still so that is all that matters. Kenpo X tomorrow people, so be ready.

Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous

P90X Day 5

Coming into the legs routine I was a bit nervous based on years of leg workout experience. I just don’t like working out my legs and I know how important it is to get your legs in shape. I have really skinny legs and I’m not sure what I can do to get them looking any better. I’m committed to doing the leg work outs to the fullest and will go the extra mile to get them rocking. I know over time I will see some results, so patience is another factor in my workouts.

The cool thing about this leg workout is the combination of another back workout. Just when you thought your back was getting a rest, you get kicked in the butt again. Alternating between Legs and back makes it a hell of a lot easier, not to give up. The leg exercises consist of a lot of variation in lunges, wall squats and calf raises.

This combo workout was followed by another Ab Ripper X routine, which involves using your legs, so I was blown up already. I was screaming again during this workout and it felt good when it was done.

After making it through this leg workout I’m looking forward to better results next week.

Keep it strong, Keep it Risickulous
