P90X Day 36: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps + Ab Ripper

Todays workout was incredibly frustrating for me, this tennis elbow is driving me CRAZY. All I want is to be able to do these exercises the way they are intended to do, not a modified version because my elbow can’t handle it. I feel like it’s going to make me not have the results I’m suppose to have and that stinks!.

Here are my stats for the workout today. For all of the workouts I tried to do pushups the normal way until my elbow couldn’t handle it anymore and I had to switch to my knees. Ugh.

Week 6
Slow-Motion 3-in-1 PushUps: Reps- 38(did bonus)
In & Out Shoulder Flys: Reps- 16  Weight- 5
Chair Dips: Reps- 15
Plange Push-Ups: Reps- 15
Pike Presses: Reps- 15(Elbow pain)
Side Tri-Rises: Reps- 13 left arm, 14 right arm
Floor Flys: Reps- 20
Scarecrows: Reps -16   Weight- 5
Overhead Tricep Extensions: Reps- 17  Weight- 5 (tried 15lbs but it hurt elbow)
Two-Twitch Speed Pushups: Reps- 27

Side-Leaning Tricep Extensions: Reps- 21  Weight- 5  (Ouch! This one REALLY hurt my elbow, could only do my right arm)
One-Arm Push-Ups: Reps- 10 (Another exercise which put my elbow in incredible pain)
Weighted Circles: Reps- 10 left, 15 right   Weight- 5
Throw the Bomb: Reps- 13 right, 11 left  Weight-5 (This hurt my elbow alot too but I slowly pushed through it
Clap or Plyo Push-Ups: Reps- 8 (Tried this and struggled with because of elbow, just did pushups on knees instead)
Slow-Mo Throws: Reps- 8  Weight- 5
Front-to-Back Tricep Extensions: Reps- 16 right, 3 left  Weight- 5 (Another painful one on my elbow)
One-Arm Balance Push-Ups: Reps- 15
Fly-Row Presses: Lost count but following along with DVD using 5 pound weights
Dumbbell Cross-Body Blows: Reps- 50  Weight 5 (This was my favorite one of all the exercises)

This workout was not as good as I had done last week so I tried to make up for it in doing better in Ab Ripper but I’m not sure if I really did or not.
