P90X3 Pilates X Review: Total Core Strength

If you’re wondering what a Pilates is, how it works, or whether you should own one… the answer is YES.  Pilates is the practice of doing core centric exercises while breathing.  And P90X3 Pilates X is the first time that Pilates has been formally introduced to the P90X package.  This workout is hard, especially if […]

P90X3 Isometrix Review: Hold And Breathe… Go!

My kryptonite is a good isometric move.  Strike a difficult position and HOLD.  As long as you can.  5 seconds in, you feel great.  15 seconds in, the shakes start to come.  At 30 seconds your shakes turn to tremors… as your muscles start to fail and go all blubbery.  And at 45 seconds, you […]

P90X3 Accelerator Review – What The??

P90X3 Accelerator.  What can I say, you can’t love ‘em all.  With 14 workouts in the P90X3 series and a ton of variety… this workout sort of loses me.  Almost every other workout in the program I like more than the original.  Accelerator may be a replacement for Core Synergistics, and if so… Synergistics was […]

P90X3 Dynamix Review: Athletic Mobility Training

P90X3 Dynamix is the replacement for the original X Stretch workout.  Not only is this workout way better, it’s way different.  X Stretch was about some basic stretching for an hour.  It was nice but pretty boring.  P90X3 Dynamix is a whole different animal.  For 30 minutes, you will not stop moving AT ALL.  Every […]

P90X3 The Warrior Review: Ass Kicked By Gravity

This workout went right into my bootcamp repertoire.  Total butt kicker and no weights required.  The Warrior is about your body and gravity.  The workout was originally designed as the workout that the P90X crew took to military bases (thus “The Warrior”) around the world.  The idea was to bring a P90X level resistance workout […]

P90X3 CVX Review: CardioVascular eXtreme

I’m not a fan of cardio work.  It’s a great way to sweat but doesn’t really lead to increased strength or muscle mass… and now we know that it’s not the most effective way to burn fat and lean out either.  So why do it?  The answer is that it does strengthen your heart and […]

P90X3 The Challenge Review: Chest, Back, Repeat

P90X3 The Challenge.  Holy s@%t.  If you have experienced P90X Chest & Back, this is it’s new brother.  And it’s a nasty mother.  While Chest & Back is the quintessential P90X workout… P90X3 The Challenge is right alongside it, proving that X3 can bring the heat.  The Challenge is all about push and pull.  Push […]

P90X3 X3 Yoga Review: 30 Minutes of Ohhhmmm

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 […]
