Last year, Adam and I began a beautiful friendship with Mr. Tony Horton via P90X. It was a gift Adam got but (and for those of you who know me and my talent for joining into things seamlessly as if I had been a part of them all along) I decided that I would join in with him on his workouts. If you don’t know what P90X is and you have time to get sucked into an infomercial, just flip through your tv channels and you’re bound to find it somewhere. For the rest of you who don’t really care, it’s a pretty intense home workout program that guarantees success with much sweat and a mere 1.5 hours 6 days a week.
I’m proud to say that we completed it (and sort of slowed down afterward…don’t judge; it’s really hard to keep that rigorous schedule up!) and not only did we have Tony as a motivator but Duncan came upstairs with us to workout almost everyday. If you are familiar with the wisdom of Tony Horton, Duncan made sure we always “brought it.” He would walk underneath us as we did pushups, sit on the padded desk chair to monitor our progress with Ab-Ripper X, and made sure we chose the right amount of weight to put on the dumbbell. He also demonstrated some expert techniques that I’ll share with you tomorrow (but be warned: do not try at home!).
