I remember thinking that since I was a cyclist the P90X Legs & Back dvd "probably wouldn't be that hard for me."
Sometimes I am amazed at my own stupidity.
One legged wall squats? Excuse me?
Triangle lunges followed by vertical kicks? You gotta be shittin' me.
Squatting down on one leg and jumping vertically? Now you're just being an asshole.
Then came the Ab-Ripper X dvd. I don't even have words to describe this thing. It's 15 minutes worth of shit that a fat guy could never hope to accomplish...but I tried.
At one point the instructor, (Tony Horton), looks me straight in the face through the screen and says =, "I know it burns, but this isn't some silly little workout, kids... this is P90X. Bring it, bring the pain!!"
Yeah, rub it in asshole....rub it in.
So I embraced the misery, maybe accomplishing 50% of the workout. Tonight the glass is half full and I'll call it victory.
Before I left for work ,I opened the fridge and showed my middle finger to the 30 pack of beer resting inside.
