P90X One on One Upper Body X (UBX) is the latest in the MC2 subscription series. Coming in at 60 minutes, it’s not for the faint of heart.
Tony does a crazy warm-up, just dancing around like nobody’s watching. He does a bunch of random moves to get the muscles warm. You can follow Tony, jump rope, or do something else.
P90X Upper Body X is a tough workout. It goes beyond what you did in P90X. Focus and keep your form. You’ll be fine.
- 4 medicine balls (optional – you can modify the moves)
- Stability Ball (optional – you can use the floor)
- You can also use a basketball
In this workout, you’ll do 12 different exercises with names like “2 Dog Pushup”, “Forearm Plank Triceps Kickback” and “Caturocker Pushups” for starters! Each exercise is repeated twice. You’ll do them in a series of 3 exercises, rinse and repeat, before moving on to the next series.
Starting out with 2 Dog Pushup, you get a few moves in one. Do a pushup, go into Upward Dog, do a pushup and back to Downward Dog. Now start over with that pushup! Do that 15 times and let me know how you feel!
The 4 Ball Pike Press was impossible for me, but easy to modify. Place hands on the 2 balls in front and place feet on 2 balls in back. Now, carefully place your body in that good old fashioned Pike Press position. This is a great move. It develops shoulder strength and lots of balance technique. If you can’t handle it, (it happens), then remove the 2 balls in the back (or front) for now.
If you think the first 3 exercises were hard, you get to repeat them again.
Tony throws in a good word for why you should join our awesome Team Beachbody Coach opportunity too! You should listen to him.
Tony attempts a triceps extension on the Stability Ball but instead, moves to the floor. Don’t worry, he warns us to be ready for it when MC2 is released! This is no ordinary triceps extension. Get yourself into a side balance position and do a triceps extension with your free arm. It’s tough!
All in all Tony brings new challenges to this Upper Body X workout that exceed anything you did in P90X. If you are preparing for P90X MC2, you’ll need all the help you can get!
