P90X3 X3 Yoga Review: 30 Minutes of Ohhhmmm
February 5, 2014 1 Comment
P90X Yoga X. Have you done it? It’s an amazing yoga session that will challenge you and leave you in a puddle of sweat by the end (actually by about 15 minutes in). Tony nails yoga in P90X and really introduces a lot of people (including me) to the benefits of yoga practice. To be honest, I hated yoga at first… but within a couple of months, the benefits were undeniable. My neck injuries stopped plaguing me. My flexibility improved a million percent. I could no kidding move better and with more ease. The only drawback to P90X yoga was the time. One hour and 32 minutes. But now with P90X3 X3 Yoga, Tony has compressed the yoga workout to 30 minutes… leaving in only the best parts of the routine.
P90X3 X3 Yoga Review
This yoga doesn’t dilly dally. You are right into vinyasas and getting the body warmed up. And it’s not long before you are doing some new, challenging moves. Airplane anyone? Anyways. The workout progresses through the usual warrior poses and then to the half moon sequence (my favorite part). The vinyasa portion of the workout ends with some triangle pose variations (more new stuff!).
P90X3 X3 Yoga then moves to the balance postures. We haven’t seen these since the original P90X (as they were omitted from X2 Yoga) and having them back is nice for focus, concentration, and balance.
The yoga session ends with some new stretches, lighter poses, and finally a short shavasana.
P90X3 X3 Yoga Review
I love the shorter yoga session for sure. Doing an hour and a half of yoga as much as twice a week was too much for me. But, I do feel that 30 minutes is a bit short for someone that really enjoys yoga. I think that this workout would have been perfect at 45-50 minutes. Oh well, I can always do X2 Yoga at 66 minutes (a great yoga workout by the way).
If you are new to yoga, P90X3 X3 Yoga is probably perfect for getting started without being overwhelmed. Either way, I think P90X3 continues to deliver killer workouts… I have not been this excited about a new program in a long time.
