Today was my second go round with arms and shoulders plus ab ripper x. Since I'm away from home, I just used bands. I figured they're easier to pack with me. I loved it! There were only a couple exercises that I prefer with weights. I think my favorite was the tricep extension. With the bands, you did it standing, and I thought it was awesome. It took me a little while to get used to the tension I needed for each exercise but I just paused for a second here and there while I got situated.
As for abs, it is getting much better! Before I couldn't even do 25 oblique crunches, and I managed that today. Woo hoo! I can really feel the difference in the crunchy frog and the V roll up thing. I'm loving it!
HRM REPORT: 705 calories! It didn't even feel like I was buring that much. Excellent!
