I’ve decided to give P90X another try. As you see from posts over a year ago, I tried it before and it resulted in an epic fail. But I wasn’t OPERATION FIT CHICK then. I wasn’t on a mission. I wasn’t focused. My goal to be a bad azz 40-year-old or a MILF were never even thoughts. Now I’M PUMPED!
I thought it wasn’t going to be as good of a workout because I do not have the pull-up bar but the resistance bands work just as well. So I move the furniture out the way. I got my water next to me. Music is playing in the background. I’m ready to take on Tony Horton and his P90x cohorts with a vengeance.
I slide disc 1 in and Tony wants me to work on my chest, arms and back. *shrugs* I got this. Everything was good until he told me to do pushups with my feet elevated on a chair and when he told me to do another set of pushups with my thumbs touching.
45 minutes later, 125 pushups down, 180 “pullups” with my resistance band, I’m feeling like I accomplished a great feat. Thinking I was done, I got up all proud and realized the dvd was still playing. Ab Ripper X: 15 minutes of intense ab work was next. 2 minutes later, I was on my sofa. I will hit the replay button tonight before bed.
