P90X-Insanity Hybrid, Day 54: Core Synergistics


I hate, hate, hate Core Synergistics. Tony says: this might be your favorite workout. It’s not. What is it I so dislike? I think it’s the indignity of Banana Rolls, the Bow to Boat and the Superman-Banana thing. In all, … Continue reading

P90X-Insanity Hybrid, Day 26: Core Synergistics


Milestone: I celebrated my49th birthday today with Core Synergistics. I must confess I did not give this my “all” today, because: 1) Honestly, I really don’t care for Core Synergistics, with all the rolling around on the floor, and 2) … Continue reading

Day 89, Week 13: Core Synergistics

“This might be your favorite workout.” ~Tony Horton It most certainly is not. I’m not sure exactly why.  Maybe it’s because Core Synergistics is always scheduled during Recovery Week and my brain equates “recovery” with “easy.”  So I’m always mentally … Continue reading

Day 51, Week 8: Core Synergistics


With week 8, we enjoy the re-introduction of Core Synergistics.  I had almost been successful in fully repressing the memory of this routine.  But with the sadism of Superman-Banana, it all came rushing back like when that dude dipped his … Continue reading

Day 26, Week 4: Core Synergistics


I had better success with  Superman-Banana today. Actually, everything just works better when you’re not in a hotel room.  Since I was home, I had access to the optimal band weight and to the dumbells.  This made a huge difference … Continue reading

Day 23, Week 4: Core Synergistics


To my dismay, Tony’s infatuation with Dreya continues on the Core Synergistics DVD.  It’s distracting and slightly disturbing. Core Synergistics is the first new routine since I began P90X.  And just as I was starting to feel good about my … Continue reading
