Day 39: Yoga X

I skipped out on yoga today. I was gone all day long, and I want to go bed. I may sub in yoga for X Stretch on Saturday. Maybe. I'll probably be painting Easter eggs instead.

Day 38: Back & Biceps, and Ab Ripper X

I love working out my "glamour" muscles. I increased the weight on a few of the exercises, which is always nice. I'm still using both my chin-up bar and resistance bands for all the pull-ups. I'm also still waiting to do one pull-up without using a chair.

Ab Ripper...yawn. Not that it doesn't work me out, but it's really getting boring.

My yoga blocks came today, so we'll see how well they work for me for yoga tomorrow.

Day 37: Plyometrics

I always look forward to plyo days! Although today, I was a tad sluggish, probably because I didn't sleep well and had to get up early to face a hellish final. Either way, I still got through plyo and love it. How awesome would it be for Tony to make another plyo DVD? I love that idea!

One move, however, doesn't do anything for me. That would be the Gap Jumping. I just feel like I'm flailing about in my living room and it's a waste of 30 seconds.

Day 36: Chest, Shoulders, &Triceps, and Ab Ripper X

I still hate push-ups. I want to try to upgrade to normal push-ups rather than do them on my knees, but these push-up exercises are tough. I'm awful at the One Arm Balance Push-Ups, even on my knees. It's frustrating, but the shoulder and triceps exercises make up for it. I like those exercises.

I had said in a previous blog that I wanted to try a different Ab Ripper, however the one in P90X Plus is a Ab Ripper/total Core workout and seems more like a Core Synergistics type thing. But I'm so sick of Ab Ripper!

Day 35: Rest

I skipped out on X Stretch today since I was studying at school all day long for my dermatology final on Monday. Trust me, I'd way rather workout than study for dermatology. I'd rather do yoga all day. Yep, that's how bad it is.

Bring on week 6!

Day 34: Kenpo X

Kenpo, Kenpo. Fun workout, but it's getting too easy. I think I'm going to try Cardio X next time I do Kenpo, because I have yet to see what it's like. Yep, that's my plan.

Day 33: Legs & Back, and Ab Ripper X

Yeah, so like I had said yesterday, I'm disappointed that there's not a new legs workout, but I guess there's only so many ways to do lunges and work out the legs without machines.

The biggest improvement with this workout I've seen is that I do both of the wall squats without taking a mini break. I'm also going to increase the weights a bit for the few exercises that use them.

As far as abs, I'm still weak with the V-Up/Pulse-Ups and Fifers. We're getting there though. I think next week I'll add in second Ab Ripper X from P90X Plus, since I'm getting sick of the regular routine.

On a side note, I ordered some yoga blocks, so hopefully they'll be here by Wednesday.

Day 32: Yoga X

Yoga hurt today, but it was a good hurt. My sore muscles needed to be stretched.

It's getting slightly easier. In fact, I'm able to reach the tips of my fingers with the Extended Right-Angle Pose & Grab. I still can't do Crane, but I think a lot that has to do with how hesitant and scared I am about falling on my head.

I see that I'm doing Legs & Back tomorrow. No change up in the legs workout??
