P90X/Rev Abs Hybrid: Day 29 (Chest, Shoulders and Triceps)

I had the overnight last night, and when I got home we all headed straight to Grafton Park for a combination birthday party for Aiden and Diana. Needless to say, it was a long day. Fortunately when the crowd thinned out and the sun was down far enough to not beat on my back, I was able to lay down and catch a quick nap.

Once I got home, it was Chest, Shoulders and Triceps time. Early on in the workout I felt a crack in my elbow (kind of like when you crack your knuckles). I didn’t think there would be much to it beyond that, but my elbow felt sore during the rest of the routine, especially when I did Pour Flies and Overhead Tricep Extensions. Even when my elbow is NOT injured, I have a hard time doing Pour Flies with anything beyond 10 lb. weights, and I can’t do Weighted Circles with anything heavier than 5 lb. dumbbells. You would think after all this time that I COULD get heavier weights going, but I have yet to advance. Maybe I just need to push myself and grab those 8’s…and if I can’t do the full two rounds like Tony and the team right away, then I will just have to work up to it!


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
