Wk 2, Day 3 Shoulders & Arms

I'm looking forward to this workout today. I LOVE strength training. I'm skipping the ab workout tho, I can feel my lower back and it's telling me that I should wait a few more days. I think doing the Ab RipperX once a week for a while until I lose more weight will be good enough. There are plenty of core exercises other than the Ab ones...and I really don't need to end up a cripple and have to stop this program. Years of back issues have made me more conscious to read the signs. So, no ab ripper for me today.

Yesterday worked out well, so I'm going to do the same thing today. After the kids get home and have their snax, I'll work out then, around 4:30. Be back to update later.

UPDATE:

4:30 didn't quite happen...I DID do it at 6:15 though. I LOVE Shoulders and Arms...there's nothing like that pumped up feeling, like your muscles might burst through your skin...graphic, yes, but as Tony says it's "a GORGEOUS feeling!"

sounds like you are kicking butt exercising! I hear you on the lower back thing. When I over do it, my back starts shooting out pains and it's no good! Keep up the good work!

You are so right about listening to your body!! I have lower back issues too and I have to stop sometimes in Pilates class because it is causing pain in my lower back. You have to listen body because like you said, you don't want to end up a cripple!!

I am so proud of you and your P90X work-out. I too love it but not the strength training part. YOu are going to be my motivation to start doing those DVD's. THanks!! Keep it up!
