P90X Review – Phase 3

p90x lean program resultsBy day 61 of P90X Lean home fitness program, I was feeling strong and lean. In Phase 3 it was time to push to exhaustion and muscle failure on every set! The goal was to fail at 10-12 reps for weighted movements. Was I ready for this? Yes! And I was excited too.

Phase 3 of P90X was a little different then Phases 1 and 2. It consisted of 4 weeks of extreme, bring-it workouts, and a fifth recovery week. Weeks 9 and 11 shared the same workout routine, and weeks 10 and 12 shared a slightly different routine.

By this phase, I kept up with the exercises without missing a beat. By the end of P90X Phase 3, I was using 12-pound weights for shoulder presses (started with 5-pound in Phase 1). My triceps extension weights fluctuated between 5 and 8 pound weights (started with 3-pound in Phase 1).

I was now able to do 20 pushups on my knees. Kenpo X was more fun than ever! Moves that I had a hard time with in Phase 1 like back kicks, were looking good! Another favorite exercise is Core Synergistics. I got really good at the “Dreya Roll” and actually enjoyed “Superman – Banana”.

Overall, I recommend P90X to anyone who is physically able to do it. I was excited to have reached my goal of toned, lean arms and tight abs. It was not easy folks! Like I said, you get out of it what you put into it. You will work hard in the this at-home fitness program. It is a commitment but if you commit just one hour per day for 90 days, work hard, and eat according to the plan, you will emerge with a new body!

Have fun bringing it!

I love P90X so much, that at the end of my 90 days, I started over again!
