Round 2 / Day 22: P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps + Ab Ripper X

The great thing about ignoring Tony* and just ripping through all the moves in both of these workouts? I shaved off more than 15 minutes from my morning routine.

The not-so-great thing? Getting through all the moves while minimizing and/or skipping rest breaks is crazy-tough. I was exhausted near the end of the hour, and had trouble with my last few reps of each exercise -- even those I normally find easy.

Still, I highly recommend trying to finish Ab Ripper X without breaks. It takes about 12 minutes, and it's a killer.

*Actually, while I tried to tune out Tony completely, I couldn't help but notice (again) that he keeps calling Dave the Substitute Teacher "Adam" and "Sean." Isn't exercise supposed to stave off senility?
