P90X Reviews: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps
This workout is 55:37 minutes long. It has an approximate 9 minute warm-up and stretch, followed by a 43 minute workout, then ends with less than 4 minutes of cool down and stretch.The video cast includes Tony H, Phil, Laura and Davey.
This DVD demonstrates many different variations for those using bands or weights. And variations for men and women. The DVD is a strength and definition workout which emphasizes two classic upper-body exercises.
1.Slow-Motion 3-in-1 Push-Ups. Slow push ups in three different hand positions.
2.In & Out Shoulder Flys. Two different shoulder flys combined into one set.
3.Chair Dips. Tony Horton shows you several variations of the chair dip to keep it interesting.
4.Plange Push-Ups. This is one you’ll have to see on the DVD.
5.Pike Presses. A great shoulder exercise that requires no weights, just your body weight.
6.Side Tri-Rises. A great triceps exercise which requires no weights.
7.Floor Flys. A push up move, which requires you to move side to side.
8.Scarecrows. I’ll let your imagination run with this one, until you see it for the first time. Its a shoulder move.
9.Overhead Tricep Extensions.
10.Two-Twitch Speed Push-Ups. This move combines fast and slow push ups.
11.Y-Presses. Like shoulder presses, but slightly out to the sides, forming a Y.
12.Lying Tricep Extensions. Like "skull crushers" if you used to go to a gym.
13.Side-to-Side Push-Ups. More push ups going side to side.
14.Pour Flys. Use light weight on this one, good form is required.
15.Side-Leaning Tricep Extensions. One of my favorite tricep exercises.
16.One-Arm Push-Ups. Don’t let this scare you. Tony shows several modifications. I never thought I would be able to do an actual one arm push ups, but guess what, I can do several, and you will too in no time!
17.Weighted Circles. Another shoulder exercise, again, you’ll want light weights.
18.Throw the Bomb. A triceps exercise, and another favorite of mine. Most guys, want big arms, did you know that building the triceps gives your arms an overall increase in size? Most guys think the biceps is the only way to add size to your arms. Not true.
19.Clap or Plyo Push-Ups. I’m sure you have seen some one do a clap push up, but when you see a plyo push up, you should be truly impressed. Especially this late in the workout. Dig deep, and soon you’ll be getting "airborne".
20.Slo-Mo Throws. This is a great combination workout for arms and shoulders.
21.Front-to-Back Tricep Extensions. More triceps. Remember, bigger arms. For the girls, don’t worry. Girls are not made to put on a lot of size. So don’t think you will get bulky! Nice and tone, exactly what you want.
22.One-Arm Balance Push-Ups. I love this move, its a great chest workout and core workout. That’s one of the great things about P90X, Push ups not only builds and strengthens your chest, but also your core. You can’t build your core lying on a weight bench doing the bench press! Push ups do both!
23.Fly-Row Presses. Another combo exercise.
24.Dumbbell Cross-Body Blows. Last move, lots of reps.
