Thoughts

This is a great workout!  I love the burn I get from it, and I don’t mean that in such a way that would suggest that I love doing Plyometrics.  Hah!  Anyhow, I’m definitely building strength, as I was able to do more pushups on just about every exercise that involved  pushups (as you’ll see on my exercise sheet.  For the pullups, I have started to do an isometric hold at the peak of contraction, and it makes a huge difference.  I really feel the burn with that added isometric hold.  I highly recommend it.

Ab Ripper X didn’t go as well as last time.  My abs were really feeling it, and I was feeling a bit sick during this portion of the workout.  That’s most likely due to my being awake for a good long while before getting up to work out.  Will fix that problem before it happens next time.
