Round Two – Day 29: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps, with Ab Ripper X Doubles (ARX Twice)
As the nice long weekend wound down, I decided that I better get my workout in. It is the first workout of phase II. Man, did I get my butt kicked today. It may be due to the slow paced rest week, but I was pouring sweat and hurting bad (in a good way of course.) As I have mentioned before, I do ARX once before my workout and once afterwards. By the second ARX round, my triceps were literally trembling trying to hold up my body weight. I am going to be sore tomorrow. The bad news of the day: it rained all day long. I did not even get a chance to use my new running shoes. I haven’t quite decided on my running schedule yet. It might happen before work if I can get up; or right before my workout. We’ll see…
This phase is going to be a little different. It turns out that I have a four-hour Managerial Economics Lecture on Wednesday nights. That is after my eight hour work day, so working out will be out of the question on Wednesday evenings. Instead, I will be shifting workouts and skipping the Stretch X day. My new schedule for phase II will be:
Monday: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps, with Ab Ripper X Doubles (ARX Twice)
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: Back and Biceps, with Ab Ripper X Doubles (ARX Twice)
Friday: Yoga X
Saturday: Legs and Back, with Ab Ripper X Doubles (ARX Twice)
Sunday: Kenpo X
I also plan to run 3-4 days per week.
Tip of the day: Stay committed. It was hard to get back into the routine after the nice long weekend, but I have to remind myself that I have a goal. No pain, no gain.
