P90X Day 33: Legs & Back

For some reason, this workout seems to be getting harder, not easier. I take that as a good thing. I think it means that I'm doing it right. Most of the lunges are ok. I'm doing them all with weights now, and I may even increase the weights on a couple of them next time. The wall squats are pretty much unbearable, but then, they're supposed to be.

But the pull ups are still killing me. I think my problem is now more mental than physical, though, and it's just something I need to push through. Every time I walk over to the pull up bar, I stare up at it with dread. Then I hop up and I do 3-4 quickly and easily. It's generally not until about the seventh one where the difficulty matches my original foreboding. I don't know why I have this mental issue with them, when they've definitely gotten much easier over the last five weeks. But, I do, and it's something I need to work on.

Ab Ripper X was, well, Ab Ripper X. I am starting to surprise myself here. My sit ups are starting to look more and more like actual sit ups. Still can't do 25 of either set, but I think I did over 10 of each before they started devolving into crunches. Hey, it's progress. Give me another few months, and I may get to where I actually look like the people in the video when I'm doing this workout.

Anyway, that's all I have to say about that. Kenpo X is tomorrow. Looking forward to a good cardio day, now that I've started making real progress there.
