P90X Day 19: Legs & Back

Third week of Legs & Back. Instead of getting easier, this is getting harder. This week I pushed myself, going deeper in all the lunges and squats on the legs. (ow!) And I pushed even harder on those $#!+ pull ups, doing several more than last week. Even made it to 4 unassisted on the second round of Wide Front Pull Ups. That’s a major coup. Much better than the 1 that I did a mere two weeks ago.

I may not have bulging biceps but there’s no doubt that I’m getting in better shape. Doc today at my annual physical was amazed at the shape I’m in. It’s nice to see such a shocked expression on the face of your doctor, and it be for good news.

Of course, after nearly killing myself on Legs & Back, I got to enjoy Ab Ripper X again. No more Ab Ripper X’s for a week and a half. I’m so not going to miss it, either. That really is an amazing set of exercises. Hard to believe you can get that tired from a mere 15 minute workout that’s not even cardio related. But, I do. I’m completely wiped every time at the end. When Tony says to go into the child’s pose, it’s indescribable how good that feels. I end up holding it for another minute or so after the DVD is over just because it feels sooooooo good.

Oh, and in case you missed it from my earlier Tweets or post, I am off the meds for my diabetes now. That was the end result of my physical and I couldn’t be happier. That’s the effect of actually getting serious about eating better and exercising more. I just wish I’d done all this about 15 years ago. Still, better late than never, I guess.
