P90X3 Review – Results, Before & Afters,
A 90 Day Total Body Transformation…?
P90X3 Complete Program Review
Block 3’s Review
Being that Block 3 is the final block of the 90 Day program, and that it introduces no new workouts, P90X3’s Block 3 Review is pretty much my review of the entire program…which can be found below.
THE P90X3 PROGRAM REVIEW
Lets cut right to the chase, no? The question we all want to know…does P90X3 work? Is 30 minutes a day enough?
In a word – YES!
P90X3 does work, 30 minutes a day is enough to achieve great fitness and a complete total body transformation.
As previously mentioned in Block 1 and Block 2’s Review –
P90X3’s LEG DEVELOPMENT IS BETTER THAN BOTH OF ITS OLDER SIBLINGS.That being said, the entire program is pretty awesome. In just 30 minutes a day YOU WILL GET RESULTS…I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBTS ABOUT IT!
OVERALL BODY DEVELOPMENT
In terms of overall-body development, P90X3 is AWESOME! Your cardio will improve, your lower and upper body strength will improve, your core development will improve, and yes, that means you too will improve. I really have nothing else to say – P90X3 simply works.
CVX + ISOMETRICS
If you’ve read my other P90X3 reviews, then you know how in love I am with two of the new workouts in this program – CVX and ISOMETRICS. I don’t know how else to express how awesome I think both of these workouts are other than to state that,
CVX and ISOMETRICS ALONE ARE WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION.
ARMS + BACK
As mentioned in the previous reviews, the only two things lacking in P90X3 are a bit more isolated arm exercises and a bit more pull-ups. Any fan of P90X or P90X2 will notice the lack of pull-ups in P90X3’s program. And, though you WILL develop your back and arms, I think there is a noticeable mass difference from P90X2 or P90X. In other words, P90X3 gave me a bit less mass and definition in my arms and back. So, if you love doing “curls for the girls” and/or more back development, then you’ll either find yourself supplementing P90X3 with a few more exercises or sticking to P90X or P90X2.
BUT, that being said, I WOULD STILL RECOMMEND P90X3 to anyone!
And now, for what really matters, some numbers and pictures…no?
Well…I ended 1 pound away from my goal of 165 pounds…lame!
19.2 pounds of fat 2 Inches around my waist 12% body fat
4.8 pounds of Lean Mass 2 Inches around my thighs and rump area
From 181to 166.6 pounds 15.4 pounds weight loss
SO WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE…?
I went from running 2 miles in about a 10 minute/mile pace to running 4.5 miles at an 8:40/mile pace…’nough said
IMPROVEMENTS - Core + Legs: Both my core and lower body are stronger than ever. IDLE - Chest: My chest development at the end of P90X3 is about the same as with P90X and P90X2. NOT UP TO PAR - Arms + Back: Though I seem to have my normal arm strength, there is a visual mass loss in my arms and back…and I can do about 15 pull-ups in a row as opposed to the 18-20 I could do at the end of P90X and P90X3.
ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN!
Neither of my knees nor my injured right shoulder have ever felt so GOOD!
Simply put; ONE | I WOULD RECOMMEND P90X3 to anyone. TWO | 30 Minutes CAN BE ENOUGH TIME! THREE | NO MORE EXCUSES….FOR ANYONE! FOUR | I WILL LIVE IN THE p90X3 WORLD as I get older! FIVE | P90X3 WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE IF YOU HAVE CHRONIC PAIN, A CHRONIC INJURY, OR IF YOU’RE OVER 40….more on these items on a later post
