Well today was the last time that I will do Chest and Back for this round of P90X. Kind of a sad day when you realize you won’t see Tony and friends anymore… NOT!!
Here is where I finished up on some of the excercises. I use the bands so Pull-ups are always 25 reps with all 3 bands, stretched as far as I can get them.
That compares to these numbers the first week.
A pretty steady improvement. I can do way more pushups than 30 on the first sets, but then I am too tired to get anything out of the second round, so I do as Tony suggests…. Pace yourself. Due to the way that my house is laid out, I do not have anyplace for a real chin-up bar. So I use the bands. I did jump up on a chin-up bar at a friends place the other day and was able to crank out 15 chin-ups, after that I did 6 of the corncob chin-ups as well. The real chin-ups are much harder than the bands, but I have to stick with what I have. There seems to be much more rest time using the chin-up bar as you cannot go til the time runs out, with the bands, I basically do them until the time runs out and then run to the next excercise. No recovery time.
If I do the P90X again (or some hybrid that contains it) I will probably install a chin-up bar in the garage, but that only works for spring/summer/fall months. It is too cold and nasty out there for winter workouts.
19 days to go….
