Day 1 of P90X Hiatus.....

Day 173 of consecutive daily exercise.

Okay, so I was interested how this post P90X stuff would work...being used to doing a certain routine, or workout system daily, and now, on my own. Fortunately for me, I'm a good self starter. I was going to do the treadmill tonight, but it was hot down there from a good roaring fire. My hubby suggested doing my other plan, which is : hyper extension bench + bench press + exaggerated overhead extension + ab work. So that's what I did.

1) Hyper extension bench: I did 3 sets of 10...making sure I went up slowly to allow the abs to work. Felt the booty and legs too!
2) Bench press: 40 lbs @ 10 reps/ 50 lbs @ 10 reps/ 60 lbs@ 9 reps/ 50 lbs @ 10 reps/
3) Overhead extension: 12 lbs @ 10 reps/12 lbs @ 15reps/12 lbs @ 15 reps

Ab Ripper X: WOW...349 ab/core exercises. I'm so happy Tony says "if you need a break, TAKE them!" Because, man! Did I ever need a break. Happily though, I completed the whole thing. Thank goodness we don't do THAT every day!

Todays workout was 66 minutes and I feel great.

Tomorrow - treadmill.

Damn girl!!!!

So I read your post and then was telling Kevin about it and he said I can read it myself you know he sat down and read your post from yesterday. He got to the part where you describe your workout and the weight you were lifting and I thought his eyes were going to bug out of his head. He wants to do this but he's going to wait until 90 days before his baseball season starts. So he'll be starting in February. But I said to him...see how strong she is now!!!

You rock!!!
