P90X Day 29: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps + Ab Ripper X – Yes!

Phase 1 is over and today marks the beginning of phase 2! As the title says, the workout was Chest/Shoulder/Triceps + Ab Ripper X. Yes!, back to lifting weights, my favorite. I love the way my arms feel after lifting weights, its great. This was the first time I had to do this workout since starting P90x program and let me tell you wow. It is ALOT of pushups, which is hard if your like me and have tennis elbow.  It’s OK though because I did my best and just forgot the rest.  Aside from all the pushups I did manage to push through the workout and was happy happy after I made it through. If your reading this and have tennis elbow, there are a few exercises you should watch out for. The following list of exercises I struggled with on my left arm because of tennis elbow. Those exercises were the Side-leaning tricep extensions, one-arm pushups, throw the bomb and front to back tricep extensions.  It is SO incredibily frustrating to me not being able to perform to my best because of my elbow.

Here are my stats for the workout today. For all of the pushup exercises below I started off regular until my elbow hurt too bad and then I switched to my knees.
