Hey guys, here are some of the moves Alexis and I are going to be doing tonight during our P90X Cardio session! I can't wait!! 
We are going to follow up this sweat sessions with some yummy dinner...portabello sandwiches! Stay tuned for pictures!! :) 


Works: shoulders, abs, obliques, butt, thighs

wacky jacks

Stand with your feet hip-width apart; raise your arms to your sides, elbows bent, palms facing forward. Hop onto your right foot as you swing left leg out to the side as high as you can, bending your torso to the left (as shown). As your left leg swings back to the floor, hop onto your left foot, bending your torso to the right. Continue, alternating sides, for 1 minute. Horton’s hint: The sillier you look, the better!

Works: abs, butt, thighs, hamstrings

swing kick
Stand with your feet hip-width apart facing a chair back with your elbows bent, hands in loose fists. With your right knee soft, swing your right leg up and over the chair (as shown), tap the floor, then swing your leg back to start. Repeat on the opposite side for 1 rep. Continue, quickly alternating legs, for 1 minute.

Works: shoulders, arms, back, abs

dive bomber
Start in an inverted V, hands and feet flat, butt raised toward the ceiling (Downward Dog). Bend your elbows and scoop forward until you’re hovering above the floor with your back arched, arms straight, chin lifted, on your toes (Upward Dog; as shown). Return to Downward Dog for 1 rep. Do 10 reps.


Works: lower back, abs

superman banana
Lie faceup, arms overhead on floor. Raise all of your limbs and head off floor (as shown) to start. Hold the position for 3 counts. Roll onto your stomach, your hands, feet and head still aloft; hold for 3 counts. Roll back to start for 1 rep. Do 20 reps.

Works: shoulders, abs, butt, thighs, hamstrings, calves

sneaky lunge
Stand on the balls of your feet with your legs together. Stay on your tiptoes as you lunge forward with your left leg, reaching your arms up until your body forms a straight line (as shown). Step back to start. Repeat on the opposite side for 1 rep. Do 20 reps.
