Chest, Shoulders & Triceps with Ab Ripper X. I brought it today big time. I figured it's time to step it up a notch. We're on the home stretch now and there is still a lot of work to be done!
Speaking of...someone told me today that they couldn't really see much of a difference in my body since starting this 2nd round of the "X". At first I was ticked, then I was sad and full of self-pity and then all of a sudden I felt this "I'LL SHOW YOU" feeling come over me. It's ON now baby! Ain't no one gonna tell me after this 2nd round of the "X" that there is not a noticeable difference in my body. That was just fuel for the fire! I'm on a mission now! :o)
Anyway, on a different--less vengeful note--I have a question to ask all you fellow fitness freaks out there. I've heard different opinions about spot-training (targeting a specific area of your body). Some say you can't do it--it has to be a total body work out to get real benefits. Others claim you can do specific work outs and target only your abs (ie. Hip-Hop Abs) or maybe just heavy lifting to target the "glamour muscles." I have 3 areas on my body that I really want to target. That's not to say that the rest of my body is perfect...but these 3 spots are the places I most want to change. The places that I would consider my "trouble spots." They're common and probably the same places ALL women want to change...but I'm determined to do something about it!
1. Lower abs (and lower back-love handle area)
2. Flab under arm
3. Inner thighs
So...if anyone has any specific exercises I can do for these particular spots, I'd love to hear it. I do quite a bit of ab work and leg work already. And as anyone knows who has done P90X...we work our arms out in pretty much every dvd. It's kind of weird because there is a component of all 3 of these places that I feel I have GREAT muscle tone. For instance...my upper abs (above belly button) look really toned trim. My biceps and triceps are pretty impressive and my thighs are nearly solid muscle with the exception of that little inner thigh area. I'm not sure if I'm just spending too much time working the large muscle groups in those areas and not focusing enough on the smaller muscle groups or what. Anyway, like I said...please send me any tips you have. I'm all ears!
