Of course,since Adam is out of town teaching at Tiny Balboa in Grenoble, France, I bought some new shoes! These are my first pair of shoes by Clarks, but they are super comfortable. I bought them on sale at DSW in Friendly Center, and my goodness, I couldn’t wait to wear them at Hot ClubContinue reading “New Shoes!”
We’re heading to Norfolk, VA today to teach, which made me think about and miss Frankie Manning. I revisited this video from Frankie 95, which I hope our students from Be My Jazz Baby get a chance to see if they haven’t already.
We took this video on my second day of teaching (UNCG English 101) this fall. In the middle of our dance, though, Adam is worried that the camera isn’t recording, so we stop dancing while he checks it…still, I like this one for its playfulness.
In this new year, Adam and I decided we’d dance at least one song a day, video taping our first social dance. Here’s our first one, featuring the Christmas Tree in the background! Check out Adam’s awesome footwork at 1:45-1:50…so much musical goodness while keepin’ it casual.
Wow! What a week. To celebrate the end of our first week, Adam and I decided to do some foam rolling (45 minutes) and then turn on Yoga with our favorite teacher, Rodney Yee. We’ve had the AM Yoga DVD for a few months now, doing each of the five different 20-minute sequences toContinue reading “P90X2 Day 7: Rest Day!”
Best Quote from Tony: when he sings about his groin–“I am me, and my groin stretching.” Finishing Quote from Adam: “Boom! Bonus Round!” Adam was the real winner on this work out. He finished strong, whereas I had a hard time keeping up. For a workout titled “Balance and Power” most of the balancing posesContinue reading “P90X2 Day 6: X2 Balance and Power”
Best quote from Tony: “…she’s filled with stretchy gumby juice” Finishing Quote from Abigail to Adam: “You write the blog today, I’m going to Old Towne” Guest blogging today, I Adam Speen will be fulfilling the recap for our X2 Yoga Awesomeness. Yoga was by far the most interesting workout in P90X and X2 deliversContinue reading “P90X2 Day 5: X2 Yoga”
Best quote from Tony:“Opening sesame seed” Finishing Quote from Adam: (Glaring) “I hate it, but I love it.” Celebrity P90Xer: DREYA returns and kicks everyone’s butt. My favorite so far. I love the combination of balance and weight lifting, technique and form, and modifications if you don’t have a balance ball or a pull upContinue reading “P90X2 DAY 4: X2 Total Body and X2 Ab Ripper”
Best last minute purchase: Standard Foam Roller 36” ($27) Finishing Quote from Adam:“That was enjoyable.” We invested in one foam roller last night, which Adam used today. Adam felt that “Recovery and Mobility” was a full tutorial on “this strange equipment” which gave individuals the chance to work out problem areas. It remains to beContinue reading “P90X2 DAY 3: Recovery and Mobility”
Best Quote from Tony: When he tells you to hit the pause button and freezes his face as if you have. Finishing Quote from Adam: “That was better.” Plyocide was more like the P90X program we remembered from our first round—yet in some ways, I felt it was better in how it focused on coreContinue reading “P90X2 DAY 2: Plyocide”
