P90X Core Synergistics

Wow! This is my new favorite DVD from P90X. I LOVE it! This is a total body workout that involves multiple muscle groups at one time for serious calorie burn and muscle tone. I used no more than 8 pound hand weights and I felt like I was running a 10K. Some of my favorite exercises from this video are as follows:

Staggered hand push ups: In push up position place one hand more forward than normal and one hand back more than normal. Stack your toes (so you are on just one foot) and do 5 push ups. Then switch hand and feet positions and do 5 more. Keep going until you can't go anymore!

Lunge with kickback and curl press: This one is hard to explain but I'll try. With weights in hand lunge forward and keep back leg straight. While in the lunge, lean forward, pull elbows back and weights close to chest and perform a tricep kickback. While still in the lunge straighten upper body and perform a curl press (bicep curl right into a overhead press and reverse to the start) then stand up out of lunge. Repeat process on other side for one rep. Repeat for 14 reps. Killer!

The Dreya Roll: Stand in front of yoga mat or soft surface. Sit on heels and roll back pointing toes to the ceiling (in gymnastics we call this a candlestick). Roll back up to standing position without arms if possible and do an X jump (star jump). Repeat for 1 minute.

The Banana Roll: This one is hard to explain too but (again) I'll try. Lie on your back and lift arms, shoulders and legs off the ground. You should look like a banana shape. Hold for 10 seconds then roll onto one side and hold for 10 more seconds. Roll onto stomach in a "superman" position and hold for 10 more seconds. Roll onto other side and hold 10 seconds. Your core is engaged the ENTIRE time. Repeat several many as possible.

If you want any demonstrations on these exercises I'd be happy to post a video. All you have to do is ask. Thanks!

But, being laughed at while preparing for a possible zombie
2012 apocalypse, or other consequences of the end of the
Mayan calendar is going to be worth it - when the unimaginable
and previously comically impossible actually come to life.
In fact the term zombie came from the region and refers to persons who have
undergone such a mind altering experience.
That is of course, unless it is at the expense of someone else.

If you're severely out of shape, going to a commercial gym can be embarrassing. Whereas weight machines were made to specifically to the office one muscular tissues, dumbbells can often give your full body workout. Compared with purchasing all 15 weights individually, one is saving an enormous amount of money by gaining it all in one item.

This is great since I don't need to grab a pot holder or towel to open the lid. College kids gain on average about ten pounds the first year. On the other hand, high setting will make it cook faster, which is for only 3 to 4 hours.

I am excited though, since I am a fanatic about having clean,
white teeth, and this brush does it naturally. Do it little by
little and cautiously because the bleach might
get accidentally on your clothing or nearly
anything that is bordering you. If yours does not and your bristles tend to wear
out quickly, ask your dentist to show you the proper pressure you should be using while brushing your teeth.

You can use adjustable dumbbells to help with weight loss.
When doing push-ups, make sure that you keep your back straight.

Start in the standing position with dumbbells held in
the shoulder press position, squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor then return to standing position.

Dumbbells are a great way to lose weight and get your
body in shape. Decades ago when some American coaches saw what their superior Baltic counterparts were training their athletes with for
certain strength competitions, they began slowly to incorporate kettlebells into their programs.

you would draw the one and only room in a 200-room, five-star

And the best thing about dumbbells is that they can also sub in
