Hello everyone! Today was one of my favorites - Legs & Back! I put the "300" image up because this workout is all about the glory muscles. Especially when you throw in the Ab Ripper X at the end! Oh, and it kicks the Hell out of you!
I started off my morning with a Whey Protein Shake. Then had a protein bar for both snacks, a chef salad for lunch and some grilled chicken wings for dinner with BBQ sauce. I over did my portion size for dinner a little so I will have to "Bring It" a little harder for Kenpo tomorrow!
Today's workout went great! I did over 20 reps on all eight of the pull-up/chin-up exercises and added weight when appropriate on all the squats and lunges. I did struggle a little with the single leg wall squats and the chair salutations. Both of these just burn the hell out of my legs but I just did my best and forgot the rest!!!
Also, I want to thank Elizabeth Renter from ExtremeBodyWorkout.com for writing about P90X blogs and including Dangle the Carrot... in her article today. She mentioned that many people take to the Internet to find out if they should purchase P90X or not and that blogs like this one are beneficial in getting a non-biased review of the product. She is 100% right because I actually did that before my purchase and over the course of the last 75 days I have received a number of emails and comments asking the question. So, hopefully if you are reading this blog I hope I help you make a decision one way or another!
Something else that I feel warrants writing about is how helpful this blog has been in keeping me motivated! Knowing that people are reading daily and will be disappointed if I skip a day or quit has really made me keep my focus and not miss days. Another positive thing this blog has indirectly created is an awesome support group of fellow P90X'ers. Mike, Matt, Tai Chi Monkey Girl and Ryan have helped me stay motivated by matching my commitment and we push each other on a daily basis. Thanks guys!
I guess my point behind this long, rambling post is that if you are planning on trying P90X find out what motivates you and use that because this program is not easy! If you want to see the "after" results like on the infomercial you need to bust your ass everyday. You cannot miss days, you cannot half ass it, you cannot make excuses. You must be committed to "Bring It" everyday!
Tomorrow is Kenpo X!
Thanks for Reading,
