Tony Horton makes movie references throughout the P90X programs. His favorite seems to be Forrest Gump. But he clearly has a dark side that reveals itself with his analogies to Deliverance and The Exorcist. Ok, I agree, Shawna from X Stretch & Yoga X is indeed flexible. She’s made of Play-Doh and makes Gumby look like the Tin man and etcetera. But really? Like that girl from The Exorcist? I just don’t see the resemblance.
Despite these distractions, I enjoyed X Stretch today. I really needed it. My shoulders and neck were in knots and are now feeling much looser. My shoulders are still feeling it when doing chautarangas. I needed to take three Advils prior to playing my tennis match yesterday to take the edge off so I could serve. I’m guessing I’ll need a full week of nothing for the shoulders to fully recover. So, I plan to do my Fit Test next weekend after I get back from my business trip.
