7. X Stretch or Rest Day

7. X Stretch or Rest Day

DAY 90: With a mix of few Rest days and Stretch I have to say that there was only a few times I felt needing the extra stretching. There are a few moves that are truly handy and can be done any given day but spending a whole 1hr of time feels like a waste of my time. What my body responded to was…

Good question and I have not asked myself this directly…actually I never did until time of this post. You wonder the same and I have heard that P90X is not a joke so…buckle up.
