P90X: A Workout to Remember

P90XP90X is the original in-home workout DVD series in the Tony Horton-created franchise. It is an intense cross-training workout sold by Beachbody that includes strength training, plyometrics, and yoga. Since its creation in 2003, it has sold over 7 million copies. This success has led to several new versions of P90X.


According to the Beachbody website, P90X is a 45-60 minute advanced total-body training program focused on abs, legs, chest, back, and arms. The 12 routines introduce new moves and challenge your muscles to create muscle tone in 90 days.


If you want to get in shape but believe that the intensity of P90X is not for you, P90 might be what you’re looking for. With shorter, easier workouts (25-45 minutes), this “90-day body transformation” system is appropriate “regardless of your age or fitness level”.


If you’re wanting to “build the body of an athlete in just 90 days,” P90X2 is the workout for you. Each 50-60 minute workout “features a breakthrough in sports science called Muscle Integration, a training technique focused on instability.” Resistance moves on one foot, a ball, or some other unstable platform force your body to engage more muscles. This increases the challenge to your body and helps you burn more calories and achieve your desired results.


According to Beachbody, P90X3 will transform your body in 30 minutes a day. “Study after study shows that the most dramatic body transformations happen . . . in the first 30 minutes of exercise. Tony Horton’s breakthrough Muscle Acceleration system combines a highly structured, plateau-busting schedule with an unprecedented variety of moves that keep every muscle challenged every day for 30 minutes of full-throttle intensity. P90X3 is a whole workout in half the time.”
