P90X Round 3 Lean Week 2 Cardio X

I really love this workout! It is one of my favorites because it incorporates several workouts in one.

Yoga, Kenpo and Plyo.

Whats my favorite move?

Swing kicks. Why?

They really work all areas of the core. When you are lifting your legs, you are working the lower abs (transverse) as you round over the chair, you are using your side abs (obliques - love handles) and the contractions that are happening as do the movement work top of the abs (rectus)

You don't have to have a chair or a bench, you can just eye an area on the wall, then swing your leg that height. (Your making a 1/2 circle as if your kicking around a chair.) Keep your hands up like a boxer, to me its just the most fun you can have without an opponent. Always remember to exhale as you lift your legs and inhale as you lower.

I think if you did this move 3 times a week you would see a huge difference in your abs.
