P90X Day 29: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps + Ab Ripper X
Posted Jan 14 2009 8:53pm
Started off this morning with a Whey Protein Shake with Skim milk and a Banana. I then waited about 2 hours and slammed a glass of SuperPump 250 and went and did the new workout: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps.
Man, it was a difficult one too! It really work your Triceps with a number of different types of tricep extensions. I used mostly my light (red) resistance band and 5 lb weights on a couple(See my workout tracker for details >>>).
And it seemed every other exercise was a push-up! Tony Horton had me doing so many different types of push-ups I could barely keep track of my reps. Overall this was a very intense workout. I wasn't a sweaty mess like some of the cardio one but this made my arms and shoulders burn and are still aching right now.
Then I moved onto ABX! I texted Mike and told him I was happy to have ABX back in my life. Since last week was the "rest week", ABX was not part of that weeks program. I brought it as hard as I could and ended up very pleased with my ABX workout. Fifer Scissors is still created by the Devil himself and I had to take a couple of seconds break on this move. I am actually starting to see some definition in my mid-section! I knew my Abs were still there, they were just hiding for the last 10 years or so!
After the workout I had a protein bar (20G) and the awesomely delicious P90X recovery drink. I then settled in for football and had a Turkey and Ham Chef salad with fat free ranch for lunch. Another protein bar and some apple slices for a snack and am planning on Grilled Beef Kabobs marinated in ginger and soy for dinner ... I will have 4 Kabobs (about 48 G protein/800 calories).
Tomorrow is Plyometrics and it is also 30-Day Pictures!!
I have setup a link on Google Docs that currently has my Day 1 photos. I am going to paste my Day 30 photos right next to the Day 1 photos so we can compare the changes on a side-by-side view. I will post the link on tomorrow's post and also on the blogspot gadgets on the right. I plan on then adding Day 60 and Day 90 right next to the others.
