Bring It: P90X Day 66

P90X is an extreme workout created by Tony Horton. The entire concept of the program is muscle confusion. If you bring it and feel the burn with the last three reps of each exercise, and constantly change it up, you will notice this program is effective enough for a complete body makeover.

When starting any diet or exercise program, there are always some doubts as to whether the advertising is truthful. That is where I come in. I am a normal, average person. I am always looking for some way to get healthier. So when I came across this, it was another test. What ended up happening was this program has tested me just as much as I have tested the program.

Bring It

Today was Back and Biceps. Possibly one of my favorite workouts in the entire DVD series. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because I really can see the results from this workout. My arms have become more toned and much stronger.

Everytime I pop this DVD in and push play, I am reminded by Tony Horton that this workout is about the glamor muscles. This is what is going to make your upper body look good. I like to dub it, the Tank Top workout. Once you have gone full round with this DVD, you will no longer shy away from those shirts without arms.

It really does work. And if you don't believe me, try it for yourself. The combination of doing several exercises that blast the same muscle groups over and over again is magic. Before you know it, you will be inviting all your friends and family to the gun show... aka... your arms!

Do you got a glamour about you?

If you got it, you might as well flaunt it!

How to be Glamorous

I will be the first one to admit I am not very glamorous. So, I figured with my newly chiseled glamour muscles, I better figure out how to get on this glamorous thing. After all, I want to look the part completely.

When I think of glamour, I think of movie stars and rock stars. These are high profile people. You might even say that you envy their lifestyle, if only for a little bit before you come crashing back to reality.

Now I am not stating that I, or should you for that matter, want to have their lifestyle. After all, can you imagine all the stress of trying to be glamorous all the time. Yet, when you have completely changed yourself, since your body is reshaping, and you are probably feeling good, it doesn't hurt to find a little glamor in your life.

So, to the best of my ability, I have come up with ways on how you to can be glamorous.

  1. Watch how you look - Yes - this means you shouldn't be going to Walmart in your pajamas and slippers. What were you thinking. Even if you don't want to be glamorous, this is a big no-no anyway. Seriously, who wants to see you in your sleeping clothes. More importantly, if you want to be glamorous you should never leave your house unless your hair is completely done. It shouldn't be messy or tangled. In fact, you should even higher your own personal hairstlyist to make sure your 'do isn't a don't when you walk out the door. In addition, don't forget about your skin. Glamorous people don't need photoshop. However, if you have trouble with acne, you should make sure you have a good facial cream to clear that up.
  2. Dress to impress - Ok - so those yoga pants might be pretty comfy and inviting. But seriously, do you want to be seen in those. You should be dressed to the nines regardless of were you are going. But on a fancy dress that accents your hairstyle for the day. Make sure to wear jewelery that accents your clothing choice. Guys, slacks and a button down shirt will do the trick, as well as a nice watch. And don't forget the shoes. Your shoes should be rocking the style.
  3. Take up an interesting hobby - What will make you more interesting to others than taking up an interesting hobby. Maybe you want to resemble that of an artist. You don't necessarily have to be able to create the art, but maybe you should think about hanging out and discussing artsy topics with other glamorous people.
  4. Choose your hangouts wisely - Who cares if you can't afford it, if you want to look glamorous, you need to be hanging out where the glamorous people do. Go to the stores that one purchase will mean you have to put a second mortgage on the house. I didn't say you have to buy anything. You just need to make your presence known.
  5. Flaunt your best qualities - Everybody has good qualities. Do you know what yours are? If you do, this is where you flaunt them. If you have great legs, show them off. If you have a great personality and a good head on your shoulders, show others that you can hang with the good guys. Flaunting your best qualities will have confidence radiating from you. Nothing makes you more glamorous then being confident.

Finally, if you want to be glamorous, you have to incorporate the elements of glamour into your life. Being glamorous is like creating a fantasy world. You want others to look at you and be envious of who you are. Remember these tips if you want to add a little glamour into your life.

NOTE: This article is intended to be funny. I would never encourage people to do this on a regular basis. However, when you are feeling good about yourself, there is nothing wrong with feeling a little glamorous every once in awhile. So dress up, do something fancy, but more importantly, blast that newfound confidence. It looks good on you!

I totally love that picture... every time I open this page to make a comment (which I've done about 10 times now and am just now actually getting it done) I see that picture and laugh! Glamour is good, but I think you are a bit outrageous :-) I don't want that kind of glamour... I want the I feel pretty oh so pretty type of glamour! lol. Sorry it took me a few days to get to this though but it is because I have been crazy busy!!! As you already know :-)

@Myth - Yeah - I don't want glamour like that either. I mean seriously... not leaving the house unless your hair and makeup is done... although I do stick to the rule of no PJs and slippers at Walmart... my hair may be in a ponytail but I won't go that far... lol

That picture is one of my favorites... your not talking about the bicep one right! - ok - didn't think so. It was from right before I got out of the military. I am actually kind of using that as my motivational guide to push myself. That is kind of were I want to be because that was me when I was feeling good about myself. I want that back and that is what I am fighting for. I don't think I have felt like that in a very long time! Trying to get back to that place again :)

I've seen something very interesting in your P90X hubs. Yoga used to be one of your favorite exercises. A while later it was the one with kick boxing (or whatever). Now it's biceps.

I get the feeling that when the 90 days is over you would have said that about every exercise. Is that because you enjoyn the exercise or because you are really starting to get very noticeable results? :)

This is a pretty entertaining series.

@Daffy Duck - I think my mood changes with each week. Some of the workouts I absolutley despised when I started. Yoga was one of them. But since I have always liked yoga, I really hated that I hated that workout. It has grown on me. The Biceps one I like because it is mostly weights. It sounds stupid because it is a killer workout but when I am feeling less than 100 percent, I know this workout pushes me to the extremes and doesn't seem to be that extreme. Kenpo has always been my favorite because it is one of my strengths. I used to do a lot of Taebo and the workout is similiar so I think that is why I enjoy it so much.

So - now that I have been majority of the way through this... you can smile knowing that when I say I enjoy the workout and it is one of my favorites... it is probably because it is growing on me.

PS - I still hate Core Synergistics... luckily that is only done during recovery weeks! :)
