I could not even tell you how tough this is to hold for 10 seconds...feel the burn! Actually the leg is kept straight out on this move, not bend under so its even tougher! I wanted to find a girl picture doing this, however they were all using a ball and I did these without one just as this photo is. Dang that 1 minute was LONG! If you have not tried these, give it a whirl and challenge yourself.
Today was day 5 of P90X and I got in 1 full set, I will finish it tonight. This is tough on my knees so the break in the workout will be good. Hopefully by next time around I will be able to complete these all in one session. My other tough move was the chair lunges, that takes good balance and to be far enough away from the chair that your knee does not go over the foot and strain the knee, so form is crucial on this move. Next move I would like to say I really enjoyed doing was the single leg dead lifts.
I did that move with 5lb weights and since I have been doing this one with my trainer I really got into it. Again, I don't have a pull up bar so I am doing resistance bands and so far my shoulder is feeling good. I did notice some discomfort on the close grip ones so I did not do those as "tight" as I would have normally.
