Isolate Your Abs

When you do reverse crunches and hanging knee raises,
round your back by rolling your hips and pelvis toward
your chest, instead of simply raising your legs. Otherwise,
you're mainly working your hip flexors—the muscles at the top of your thighs.

You will learn how to do this in P90X+

Go Light, Get Strong

Lift light weights fast to build strength. Your muscles will generate
as much force as if you were lifting a heavier weight more slowly.
Try it with the bench press: Use a weight that's 40 to 60 percent of
what you can lift one time, and do eight sets of three repetitions,
pushing the weight up as fast as possible. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

    would you come down fast also or would you go at your normal decending speed. I bring the weights down slow.

Save Your Calves

If you're a runner and your calves feel tight when you wake up
in the morning, try sleeping on your stomach with your feet hanging
off the bed. Gravity will take over, lightly stretching the calf muscles all night.

    I used to habitually sleep on my stomach until I began having back problems. To help ease the stress on my lower back when I sleep on my stomach, I try to put a pillow under my stomach. Now, I have a good reason for sleeping on my stomach when my calves feel tight. Thanks for sharing!!

    I used to love sleeping on my stomach but chiropractor talked me out of it. Now I have a good excuse to do it when my calves need to be stretched! Thanks.

Finish Faster

To save time, use the same weight for your entire workout. Pick the
weight based on your weakest exercise—choose an amount you
can lift only six to eight times—and do the moves in a circuit.
