P90X - Shoulders and Arms + Ab Ripper X

Today I decided to do some P90X - just straight up lifting because I got my butt handed to me last night with my Insanity Max Interval Circuit workout, I totally forgot how long that workout was (59 minutes!).

Tomorrow I will be leaving Tampa and won't be back again until sometime in August, so I had to make sure to get another workout in at Powerhouse Gym in downtown Tampa, which in my opinion, is the BEST gym ever! I ended up doing P90X Shoulders and Arms along with ARX (Ab Ripper X), one of my favorite workouts within the P90X Classic program. I remember doing P90X for the first time back in September of 2010, and it is still a BEAST workout, just like it was back then! Maybe that's why I am so addicted to this extreme program, because it continues to challenge me in more way then one.

So without further ado, let's get into the workout!

As always, make sure that you get your WARM UP in, if you are at the gym, you can get on the treadmill and do a light job, and some nice ballistic stretches just to get the body ready. The workout consists of 5 rounds of 3 exercises (3 exercises performed 2X).

First Round:
- Alternating Shoulder Press
- In and Out Bicep Curls
- Two-Arm Tricep Kickbacks

Right after my P90X Shoulders and Arms workout, I went straight into Ab Ripper X! As always, ARX always kicks my butt, I think my abs started cramping up LOL, at any rate, I finished strong!

I finished off with a quick cool down on a Spin Bike and cycled for about 10 minutes, and that was it, DONE! =) It's SHAKEOLOGY TIME!
