P90X3 Eccentric Lower Review: Also Known As Legday

It seems that every other fitness meme on Facebook is a picture of a collapsing animal labelled with the text LEGDAY across it.  Legday has sort of become the day that everyone dreads (if they they are doing it right) and a bit of a internet phenomenon.  I’m glad it’s getting the deserved attention as […]

P90X3 Isometrix Review: Hold And Breathe… Go!

My kryptonite is a good isometric move.  Strike a difficult position and HOLD.  As long as you can.  5 seconds in, you feel great.  15 seconds in, the shakes start to come.  At 30 seconds your shakes turn to tremors… as your muscles start to fail and go all blubbery.  And at 45 seconds, you […]
