Workout B starts with a quick warm-up sequence (done twice) of Prisoner Squats, Elevated Push-Ups, and Stability Ball Leg Curls. And then it's on to the main event:
- Pull-Ups (8 reps): No description needed.
- Dumbbell Floor Presses (8 reps): I did Dumbbell Bench Presses instead. (Our garage floor's a little dirty.)
- Chin-Ups (8 reps): You know -- Chin-Ups.
- Dumbbell Incline Presses (8 reps): Nothing you haven't seen before.
- Dumbbell Rear Deltoid Raises (15 reps): Holding a pair of dumbbells, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Lean your upper body forward so that it's parallel to the floor. Let your arms hang vertically. Laterally raise the dumbbells up and out to the sides. I did these a week ago, but today's workout requires upping my reps.
- Decline Push-Ups (20 reps): Nothing out of the ordinary for fans of P90X Chest & Back.
Rest a minute, and then repeat the superset twice, for a total of three times.
Workout B was pretty damn tough, but then I started my 12 minutes of Man Maker practice. Swinging a kettlebell puts things in perspective; there are few other exercises that kick my ass quite as much. I'm getting (slightly) better at it, but it's one heart-pounding, leg-burning interval workout that still intimidates the hell out of me.
As for Insanity Cardio Abs, I ran out of time this morning, and still haven't done it (yet). But mark my words: I will squeeze in a core workout before bed tonight.
