Ab Ripper take 2

So I'm way behind on my p90x plan :( I told myself LAST week that I would start it up, however my excuse reason for waiting is that this weekend is my last 1/2 marathon for quite some time, (haven't decided when the next one is) so I will have a much more open training schedule without worrying about being too sore to run.

So starting next week I need all of you to hold me accountable for posting my day 1 of my experience!!

In the meantime, I decided to give ab ripper x another try, determined to finish the whole thing.  This time I brought it to work and talked B and Melinda into doing it on our lunch break.

Yoga mats- check
portable dvd player - check
ridiculous amount of laughing at how some of the moves were hard to do- check.

Proud to report we did the whole video- had to modify one of the combo moves, and I looked like I was having a seizure while trying to do the side oblique crunches, but other than that, it went well.

As an added bonus- I'm not as sore the next day like I was last week. Haven't decided if that is a good thing or bad thing yet. I'm excited because both ladies said they would be willing to do this again since it doesn't take too long.

Summer abs here I come......


  1. Way to go! The obliques are so tough, that's usually where I pause it.

  2. What a great way to spend lunch!!! :)

  3. That is so cool that you girls got out and did it during lunch. Now thats dedication!

  4. That is the greatest way to do p90x ever!

  5. Wooo hoo! Way to be dedicated girl!
