Nope, It’s Not Easier

I am in my 2nd week of P90x. I foolishly thought that it would be just a little bit easier this week. I had conquered the 1st week, and I knew I had a long way to go, but there is no way it could actually get harder right? (I should have known better I know….but was optimistic!)

I did Chest & Back today along with the Ab Ripper X (some day I hope to make thru the whole 16 minute Ab workout). I worked with my main man Tony Horton (what up yo!), Bobby, Scottie and Meran. This was 44 minutes of biceps, triceps and back work and it did a sista in. It was harder doing push up this week because I actually had the correct form, even though I was still on my knees, and I was going deeper into the push up to get a better workout. I had less reps this week on some of the push ups because I was actually doing them right (crazy right?)  Any who, I did my best and I am forgetting the rest! (That’s Tony’s motto and I am sticking to it!)

I followed this up with the Ab Ripper X, which is a 16 minute ab routine, and as stated above I have yet to make it all the way through this particular exercise. I really don’t know how they expect you to do that after 44 minutes of Chest & Back but I will keep working on it. (Fingers crossed and praying really hard!)

Peace & Blessings,

ME!
