Too many people like to think about putting their health and fitness on the priority list AFTER the holidays. I often think that the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions is an awful one, since it gives us an excuse to postpone getting healthy till after all the bad eating habits have run their course, and then make of what should be a marathon a sprint as people try to undo all the damage one over the Fall and Winter months in but a few weeks. So don’t be like everybody else: get in shape today!
Everybody wants to get fit at some time in their lives. Whether it’s an abiding passion from their teenage years or a sudden resolution upon turning fifty, people everywhere are susceptible to sudden violent desires to get fit. Some go to the gym, others take up running, while some decide to start an at-home workout such as Power 90 or P90X. If so, the question rapidly becomes: which is the right workout for you? Should you start slow and pace yourself, or go extreme straight away?
If you've been around the P90X block a couple of times, then you'll have your favorite workouts and the ones you dread. For example, I love the Arms & Shoulders, Chest Shoulders & Triceps and Shoulders & Arms. Not so hot on Plyometrics, Legs & Back and the Ab Ripper, but what can you do? What you realize though is that with practice, with time, you start to really love certain exercises, certain moves that get you pumped, that you work extra hard at because you get that slight degree of extra pleasure doing it. So this blog post is a round up of MY favorite P90X Workout moves, and while I know these won't appeal to everybody, feel free to chime in with what gets you psyched!
Tony Horton's P90X Extreme In-Home Workout seems at once easy to adopt and incredibly hard to do so at the same time. Why? Because the allure of the 90 day program is such that anybody should feel capable of committing to it. Three months or a full body transformation seems like a tiny amount of time to invest for such dramatic results. But then people actually sit back and look at their day to day schedules, and wonder: how am I ever going to squeeze an extra hour out of my already busy life? Where am I going to find the time?
