Day 11>Chest, Shoulders & Tri/Ab Ripper X

Posted by pggylb on May 13, 2010

This post is a being published a day late. This is yesterday’s workout.

Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps and Ab Ripper X (CST/ARX)

If you are someone who enjoys a nice variety of push ups, then this workout is for you. Lots of push ups and all different ways. Some push ups I could do, some I couldn’t. But, one day I will be able to do all of them. There were:

  • Regular push up
  • One-armed push up
  • Military push up
  • Clap push up
  • Slide push up
  • Plyometric push up (looked fun; gonna take me a while)
  • And more. You want to know? Then get off the couch.

My shoulders took a beating but it was a nice welcomed change of pace from my legs.

Then there was the Ab Ripper X, or ARX for short. This little workout addition is a lot of fun, but very hard to do. It’s only 16 minutes long but really gets the gut burning. It is 25 reps to each set; I could only do about half those reps before reaching failure. This morning I got up and noticed that I could hold my tummy in a little tighter; felt good.

Now, if I can just get to a point where I can hold the bubble butt in tighter, I’d be happy.

Day 2>Cardio X

Posted by pggylb on May 4, 2010

Wow, what a fun workout! Wacky jacks, dreya rolls, punches, kicks, and yoga to warm up to. Fun! My core got a good work out from laughing at myself.

I can feel my legs tightening back up just like I did in the beginning of Power 90. After a wk of P90, I had lost a 1/2 inch from my thighs. I wonder how much more I will lose after this wk and next. I can’t wait to do a weigh in and find out.
