After a couple of extra days to end my first week of Phase Two, I’m back at it and going for full blast. Unlike last week, I pushed for more reps. Which is something that made me think, hmmm… Dare I say it’s harder than last time? Yes, I do. Which means that my second chest back and balance including abs workout wasn’t like last time.
First, I decided that I would do some of the reps with assists to see if I could get the numbers up. This proved to be more difficult. Meaning I didn’t get as many as I would have hoped to get in. By the end of the workout I was pushing it and realized that I didn’t get nearly as many unassisted. Strange.
I was really hurting in the pullup department. Not sure why. This time around it was a major struggle. That’s a slight blow to the ego. Hopefully next week will prove that I can get some of those unassisted reps back. At least I’m gonna push for that.
I did go for some of the bonus moves this week. The first bonus move, I got 2 reps. Yikes. The second bonus move I sat out. The third one, I went for it, got into the move and didn’t get out. Holy cow! Talk about hard at the end of a workout.
The Ab Ripper X2 at the end of the workout this time wasn’t so bad. I’m finally getting to the point that I’m keeping up with the moves, except for Abernome (spelling?) that one is still a little tough to keep up with.
All in all, it was a good workout. I may actually stick with Phase two for an extra week, unless next week goes spectacularly. But at the ending of my second chest back and balance including abs workout in Phase Two of the X2 Journey, I’m definitely feeling it!
