Today was Shoulders and Arms with a side of Ab Ripper X.
Shoulders and Arms is pure weight lifting. The pace seems slower because there is no cardio, but time flies! This is my favorite P90X workout because I don’t feel as bad when I max out at a lower amount of reps. I love pushing as hard as I can with a slow and solid form. I can feel the burn and know that the job gets done. I definitely brought it harder than last week.
The diet is going strong. I eat the same thing everyday and the cravings getting are easier to resist.
On a side note, I had a friend asking me about P90X today. He has been hearing good things and is considering trying the program. For anyone else considering the program, make sure to check out the links at the top of the page. Initial Cost > Discount Breakdown will give you an idea of the equipment that you will need. So far, I am loving P90X and getting great results quickly. P90X is essentially what you make it to be. Ladies can eat a lower amount of calories and slim/tone. Guys can eat a tone of calories and bulk up. P90X gives you options and teaches you what you need to do to get the results that you desire.
Tip of the day: If you want to gain muscle and bulk up while weight training, lower your reps and increase your weights. Don’t be scared to max out early as long as your muscles are shaking and can’t take anymore. Eight reps may be the perfect amount. On the other hand, if you want to slim and tone, bring the weights way down and do a ton of reps. You should still have enough weight to max out.
