FoamRollerI can be a real ass about stretching. I'm self-aware enough to recognize that. I've worked really hard the last few years to get flexible, and I believe that I started with some natural advantage in this area. I've always been reasonably limber for a guy. But here's part of the reason I'm an ass – one time in yoga class I was really working a pigeon pose. I had everything cranking and it felt like my hip was in a vice. My face twisted and sneered. My breath hissed between my clenched teeth.

That's when the instructor (Brett Russman, I mentioned him earlier) knelt down next to me and said – "The stretch is in your hip. Relax your face and slow your breathing, D-Nozz." I added the D-Nozz, he never said that part. It's short for douche nozzle.

Anyway, what's my point? Oh yeah, my point is that I enjoy stretching, but I can be a real ass about it. I tend to roll my eyes when people hiss, and sneer, and bitch. That's P90X2 Day 3 in a nutshell – lots of stretching and growing. It's fun if you enjoy that kind of thing. Bonne Chance!
