P90X Day 40: Legs & Back + Ab Ripper X

For me, Legs & Back is the most challenging of all P90X workouts. I suck at balance lunges. I suck at switch grip pull-ups. I suck at deadlift squats. And then, after my legs are shot to hell, I have to endure Ab Ripper X, which demands a lot of leg lifting and hip flexor flexing.

I was encouraged to see some slight improvement in the number of unassisted pull-ups and chin-ups I was able to crank out today, but I was a sloppy, sweaty mess by the end of my workout this morning. You'd think I'd be better at this by now.
