"I almost blew out my esophagus!" -Tony Horton- Back&Biceps
***Happy Hippie New Year*** 4/20/2010 something smells funny...
I've decided that I really like the Back&Bicep workout from P90X. It's a shorter workout, with plenty of opportunity to increase the resistance. Last week, I found myself doing lots of Red-Band (30lbs) exercises. This week, I decided I needed a bit more, except I don't have any heavier gauge bands. So to fix the problem I deiced to use two bands. It's a little awkward for the grip, and near impossible for hammer curls, but for the regular bicep curls and lawnmower style exercises, it worked fantastically!
My only gripe with the Back&Bicep workout is the girl in the video, Katie. She looks a little bit like Jenna Fisher (Pam from The Office). But she's so bubbly and cheery and Tony's little A+ student answering all his questions and seemingly so excited to be in the video. I don't know why that irks me, but it does.
I love what Tony says at the end of the video though, in the last seconds before it switches over to AbripperX...
"TIM-EE, BOB-EE, KATE-EE, and oh, by the way, I'm Ton-EE! *under his breath* don't forget to drink a recovery drink"
Almost a full workout without hearing about the damned recovery drink... but alas, he mentions it at the very last possible moment. What a salesman!
