Glamour Muscles, Baby!

Round 3.  Day 3.  P90X.

Shoulders and Arms.

Time to work the glamour muscles, baby!

This is hands down my favorite resistance workout in the P90X program. I love the shoulder and bicep definition I get and I think shoulders can be very sexy, so I tend to focus on mine quite a bit.

I was very sore going into today’s workout and to be honest, I almost skipped it since I’m off from work tomorrow. I figured I would just pull a double and go to bed early. Then I remembered I am going to MEET Tony Horton tomorrow and workout with him, (squeeeeeeeee!) so a TRIPLE wouldn’t be a good idea.

At 8:30pm, I dragged my sorry self downstairs to the living room and pushed play. I am so flipping happy I did, too! As soon as I started warming-up, my soreness started to disappear and I felt good. Jumping jax and arm circles were a little rough due to the chest soreness but it quickly worked itself out and I was able to get to it.

Here’s a break down of the moves you do. It works Shoulders/Biceps/Triceps and repeats for each round.

Round 1:

  1. Alternating Shoulder Presses.
  2. In & Out Bicep Curls.
  3. Two Arm Tricep Kickbacks

Round 2:

  1. Deep Swimmer’s Presses
  2. Full Supination Concentration Curls
  3. Chair Dips

Round 3:

  1. Upright Rows
  2. Static Arm Curls
  3. Flip-Grip Twist Kickbacks

Round 4:

  1. Two Angle Shoulder Flys
  2. Crouching Cohen Curls
  3. Lying Down Tricep Extensions (*Tip of the Day – don’t smash your face.)

Bonus Round:

  1. In & Out Straight Arm Flys
  2. Congdon Curls
  3. Side Tri-Rises (*Do more of 26 of these and Tony is coming to your house!)

I followed this routine up with Ab Burner from ChaLEAN Extreme instead of Ab Ripper X. As I have mentioned before, I have 2 herniated discs in my lower back and ARX tends to aggravate them. As long as I feel an abdominal burn, I’m not really picky as to which program the workout came from.

I’m actually looking forward to Yoga X tomorrow. I normally HATE doing it and would prefer to poke my eyeball out with a chopstick than do 90 minutes of this torture Tony calls yoga. However, I actually think my muscles will appreciate and it will be a good thing to do before going to the group workout tomorrow.
