Do More Chinups

Don't think about pulling yourself up when you do
chinups. Instead, imagine pulling your elbows down.
The exercise will seem easier.

I know a lot of us could only do 1 or 2 of these when we started P90X. By the end we could 5 or 6. That is GREAT progress!!! I have noticed that this exercise uses a lot of upper body muscles. Like Tony says, "I hate it, but I love it!"

Bench More Now

Look at your dominant hand—without turning your head
—while you're bench-pressing. You'll be able to lift more weight.

Has anyone tried this? If so, please let me know if it true. If I close my eyes and picture myself as a bodybuilder, will I also be able to lift more?

Double Dip Benefits

Do dips with your elbows in and your body straight
to work your triceps. But lean forward and flare them
out to focus on your chest.

I may have to try this.

Get Stronger Fast

Do the same amount of exercise in 10 percent less time.
It forces your muscles to work harder and improves your
endurance at the same time. If it takes you 30 minutes to do
a full-body workout on Monday, try to do it in 27 minutes on Wednesday.

Have a GREAT weekend!

    I just decided that this would be the next move I make when what I am doing current, becomes routine.

All caught up emoticon Sorry sparkers!

Improve Balance

Use a sofa cushion to improve your balance. Stand one-legged on the
cushion and move a medicine ball (or a 1-gallon milk jug or heavy phone
book) from hand to hand, side to side, and behind your head. Once you've
mastered the move, try it with your eyes closed. You'll improve your balance,
coordination, and body control, all important athletic attributes.


All you have to do is "YOGA X" emoticon
