P90X Day 52: Kenpo X

Oddly enough, I find the warm-up for Kenpo X to be more challenging than the main event. The "Saunders stretch cycle" isn't your typical Tony Horton warm-up; rather than hustling us through a bunch of now-familiar static and ballistic stretches, Tony tasks us with a series of balance-intensive moves and poses, including prayer squats and extreme side lunges. I'm usually still half-asleep when I start my warm-up in the morning, so launching immediately into balance poses can be tough for me.

As for the rest of Kenpo X, I'm still using weights, and trying my best not to land a hook/uppercut on my own face with a dumbbell.
