I never got into workout DVDs until I discovered Jillian Michaels. Holy hell the women she gets to do the advanced versions of every move are in amazing strength. One of them, Basheera, is basically a superhero in disguise. I was feeling pretty good about myself for not needing to do any of the modified versions on a circuit the other week, and abruptly Jillian goes, "IMPRESS ME!" and Basheera just starts chewing through each move with a ridiculous amount of flexibility and strength without so much as batting an eye. It made my jaw drop. I used to joke I just wanted to get into bear fightin' shape in case I ever needed to wrestle one, but I guess now I have to aim to be in Basheera fightin' shape in case she ever decides to use her powers for evil, because we're all screwed otherwise.
