Phew only 2 more weeks to go and P90X is through! I am super excited, can ya tell? It’s not that I don’t like it, I’m just really looking forward to adding more variety to my workouts.
On Monday, my usual day 1, I really felt running so that’s what I did instead of starting week 10. Beginning on Tuesday then, here’s what I did:
Tuesday: chest, shoulders and triceps plus abs
Thursday: back and biceps plus abs
Saturday: legs and back plus abs
Monday: kenpo cardio
I did all the workouts for the week and only switched up 1 day at the end. Even though I was gone for the weekend from Thursday through Sunday I still managed to do my workouts. My mom did yoga and the stretch DVD with me. It’s so much more fun to workout with someone else!
Since I was away I didn’t want to bring my pull up bar with me, so instead I took my exercise bands. This worked out real well and it challenged my back in a whole new different way than with the pull up bar. I could really focus on my form which was nice. Check out my examiner article to see how I did my pull ups with them.
Back and Biceps
This workout is nice because you don’t repeat any of the exercises. There are a total of 24 exercises that you do in this routine. Half focus on your back and half on your biceps.
After the standard warmup you get right into 2 back exercises, the first being a type of pull up and the second exercise uses weights. After 2 back exercises you have 2 bicep exercises. Then you repeat the 2 back-2 bicep sections 5 more times. Since you go through 12 types of curls your biceps get a huge burn and pump!
I love this workout because it is simple to follow and really targets both muscle groups. The most challening exercise for me is the reverse grip chin ups because by then you’ve already done 8 bicep exercises and the chin ups use your biceps so much. Usually I’m the strongest when I do chin ups but when I get to those my biceps are already toast.
Any questions about P90X or the workouts? I’m here to answer your questions!
