(Round 2.1) Day 12: Legs and Back, Ab RIpper X

Busy evening tonight so got up early to workout.

Just not early enough.

Did all of the back exercises but not all of the legs. Pullups are starting to get easier again. Hate wide front and close grip. But the reverse grip chinups are coming along. I'd say if someone challenged me I could do about 20-25.

Finished with abs. Getting stronger ... hopefully.

(Round 2.1) Day 11: Rest

Off day. Need to find something to replace Yoga with, just not my favorite activity. Thoughts? Anyone?

I could run, but again, don't want the extra cardio. Perhaps something else that's muscle building that could fit in here. I'm at a loss.

(Round 2.1) Day 10: Shoulders and Arms, Ab Ripper X

If there's one thing I really want, it's nice abs.

If there's one thing I don't have, it's nice abs.

I do think that even after 10 days that p90x is back to getting me in shape, but abs are so tough to push through if there's fat to overcome. So ab ripper x is again my frienemy.

Typical day of arms, shoulders and triceps on the bands. Yoga tomorrow. We'll see about that.

(Round 2.1) Day 9: Plyometrics

Late workout. Not a big fan, need to try to get up earlier to do this.

Really not enjoying plyo. I know I said this round isn't about cardio, but perhaps I need to break out the runs in lieu of plyo. At least when it's not 95 and muggy anymore.

Arms and muscle building tomorrow.

(Round 2.1) Day 8: Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X

Late workout tonight. I foresee soreness progressing throughout the day tomorrow.

Same deal as last Monday. Lots of pushups. Lots of tough pullups.

I pushed myself harder on pullups tonight. I usually decide to fail before actually failing. So today I kept going til my arms actually couldn't do it anymore. Punched out a couple more than usual, but the next set of pushups was harder each time.

Finished with abs. Nothing great.

I do have to say that I think my body has come to point where just a few workouts help me get back into decent shape. I feel much better about myself due to the past 8 days. Hopefully the next 22 of this phase push me in the right direction and I'm back in the groove to finish 90 days ... again.

(Round 2.1) Day 7: Rest

Today became the off day I never wanted to have, considering I took Thursday off.

Ended up not doing anything cardio-related while on vacation, then traveled home.

Guess it gave my body some more time to heal from week 1. Time to do it all over again next week, starting with chest and back tomorrow. Actually looking forward to it.

(Round 2.1) Day 6: Cardio

As previously noted, I'm away on vacation. Similar to my last time away from home, I have cardio in store for these couple of days.

Today was strictly tennis. Little over an hour's worth. Felt good.

Not sure what my workout plan is for tomorrow. I could be back in time to do some yoga, or maybe I'll squeeze in cardio before I head back down. We'll see.
