Manage Your Middle

Do your ab exercises at the beginning of your workout if you can't pass this test:
Sit with your feet flat on the floor and your legs bent—as if you had just performed
a situp. Then place your fingers behind your ears with your elbows pulled back.
Lower yourself to the floor as slowly as possible. If it doesn't take at least 5 seconds,
you need to prioritize your abdominal training,

Run Hills Faster

When running uphill, keep your head up and your eyes focused on the top of the hill. This opens your airways, making it easier to breathe than if your upper body were hunched forward.

Reach Your Goals

Set your goals in reverse. That is, pick a date of completion and
work backward, writing down short-term goals as you go.
The goals then seem more like deadlines.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Recover Faster

When you're recovering from a muscle injury, begin exercising
again as soon as you can. Try a few minutes at low intensity to
test yourself. Go slowly—no explosive movements. If you experience
pain, stop immediately. Afterward, ice the area for 20 minutes and
exercise again the next day. You should be able to go a little harder and
longer each workout.

Be More Flexible

Spend twice as much time stretching your tight muscles as
your flexible muscles. Focus on problem areas instead of
muscles that are already flexible. Typical problem areas
for men: hamstrings, shoulders, and lower back.

I LOVE STRETCHING!!!!

    Thanks to P90X I now love yoga. I know it's weird to say about a program like P90X but if it weren't for Wednesday YogaX I would have never gotten so into it.

BTW - did you see the new program they are coming out with this summer? I totally thought of you. It's called Body Beast. They have a demo on Facebook today.
