Brought it today but still feel like I can give it more. And my shoulders are still sore instead of my chest or back... why? I start out great... doing my push-ups on my toes but once the second round hits... it's like I can't do them at all... not even on my knees. I know my form is still okay, but I feel the push-ups in my shoulders more than anywhere else as the program is coming to an end. Before P90X I did ChaLEAN Extreme and did the 100 Push-up Challenge and always felt push-ups in my arms so I can't figure out what's going on this time. Maybe all the different push-up styles are doing it. Not sure but I'll make a mental note to really pay attention to my form when I do Chest and Back again next week. And P.S. - dive-bomber push-ups are the ones I love and hate the most! I think this is actually the style of push-up that gets my shoulders sore!
ARX kicked my butt!!! I brought it the hardest I ever did so far and my abs are so sore!!! I seriously thought I was going to pass out on some of the exercises because I tried to go for as many reps as I could. Why is it that the abs hurt so much more intensely than any other muscle group? It's a different kind of burn... but I guess because they hardly get used (?). Anyway, I decided to change it up and do the CLX ab workout every other day just to mix it up with ARX. And I really wanna throw in some Core Synergistics but don't have time to do the full hour long routine... maybe on days I have the time, I'll sub that for ARX. It's still really early into the program so I'll just wait it out till I get bored with ARX.
