X2 Shoulders Arms And Abs

Ah, today was much better than a couple of days ago. No bonking. Keeping up with the workout and feeling good about it. Unlike last week where I was on the road and didn’t have weights with me. This week’s X2 shoulders arms and abs had some weight behind it.

What a workout. So much better with weight. In fact I could really feel it. I started with a slightly lighter weight but upped the reps. Next week should allow me to increase the weight a little.

The thing I’m noticing about X2 is the size of things like my arms and pecs. They’re growing. It’s a good thing that Beachbody suggests taking measurements prior to starting the program. If I can see the results, I’m thinking the measurements are going to show the results.

It’s certainly invigorating when you get through a regimen like P90X2. Especially when you have a workout where you bonk out the day before.

The real bonus was getting through the X2 Ab Ripper. This was my best showing with it yet. I made it through the whole round, minus 4 of the final reps of the last move. So close. So close. Could the next round of abs see me get the entire routine? I think so.

Happiness is getting through a round of X2 shoulders arms and abs.

X2 Shoulders Arms And Abs

Ok. On the road with extremely minimal equipment. Extremely minimal = none. Means that I am doing moves way modified. I wasn’t really anticipating getting any workouts in this week. Instead I’ve decided it’s worth the effort to go through and do them sans weight and other gear. Fortunately my sister does have a stability ball so I can at least make use of that. Despite the lack of gear I did get through X2 shoulders arms and abs today.

First off, my Diamond coach is in this video. Jason Scheff is my upline Diamond coach. So to see him in a video is pretty cool. Video wise, this video seems to be the most spontaneous and relaxed from a technical standpoint. This gives the work a good sense of having fun while working out. Way to go Tony Horton and Jason Scheff!

Even though I had no weights or bands with me, I worked the resistance as best I could and did the moves. Wanna know something? I’m actually feeling that in my shoulders and upper arms. I can’t wait until next week when I’m back to being able to use actual weights with these exercises.

There’s a couple of new moves in this that are not from P90X. Particularly the one I felt the most was the Y-T move. He even states there’s no need to use weights and especially not heavy weight here. I think he’s on to something.

Either way, I’m looking to get into the next couple of workouts in the next couple of days even though I don’t have gear with me. Not that I didn’t attempt to pack my foam roller. I did. Anyway, I’m writing to acknowledge that doing the moves sans weight will still produce some effect for ya. That’s some serious modification to X2 shoulders arms and abs. If you can’t do that, then you need some major motivation.
