P90x3 Workout Review

P90X3
Rating: ★★★★★

Thinking about buying the P90X3 workout program?

If so, then there is a few things you should probably know before handing over your credit card details. So do read on…

Hi there. My name is Wazza and I’m a single dad that used to love staying in shape.

I had a go at many sports but my passion was baseball.

After my wife passed, my whole life went in a downward spiral and life itself started to get busy FAST!

With 2 kids to take care of, my 9 to 5 job and trying to come to terms with the loss of my wife, you could say I lost control of my overall health.

To much fast food and sleepless nights had me gaining weight like you wouldn’t believe.

I think you’ll agree, when you’re eating fast foods like KFC, Mcdonalds and pizza it makes you feel pretty crap.

But still, it’s easy and convenient, so we eat it anyways.

With 2 overactive boys, I was finding it hard to keep up!

The more overweight I became the harder it was to spend quality time with them playing catch and trying to chase after them at the park.

With the sudden increase in weight, also came the health problems.

Apparently, I was on the verge of type 2 diabetes.

Long story short, I had to do something fast.

My P90X3 Review: Not For Everyone..

Before I begin my P90X3 workout review, I thought I better mention that I am not affiliated with Beachbody or trying to promote their products in anyway.

I’m just a dude voicing my opinion so others can read some feedback and give people something to think about before they pay for anything.

My review isn’t like all those raving reviews you may have already read, mine is a bit of a negative review and here’s why..

Now, I know everyone is different, but my P90X3 results were no where close to the before and after pics and raving testimonials on the beachbody site.

I literally busted my ass and gave this a really good go. I did lose a small amount of weight and toned up a fraction but nothing spectacular.

I later found that this workout program just wasn’t for me.

P90X3 Calendar: To Challenging For Me

To be successful and to get results Tony recommends following the P90X3 schedule which is a 90 day calendar.

It is laid out good and it’s easy to follow.

However, this is a 7 day schedule that can be hard to maintain or stay consistent with, especially for the 90 day calendar.

Because they are high intensity, they are very challenging.

If you’re a complete beginner or, if you haven’t exercised for some time like myself, then you’re going to find this super hard.

I recommend a much easier workout that gradually gets harder.

P90X3 is super hard from the get go..

What’s The Difference Between P90X, P90X2 and P90X3?

I first heard about P90X a few years ago, it was really popular and was advertised on TV a LOT…

Since then, Tony Horton has evolved the workout program and created 2 sequels to the original.

Difference between P90X and P90X2:

According to Tony Horton (the trainer and creator) P90X was created to cause muscle confusion.

With P90X2 resistance training, plyometrics, cardio training, and yogahave been added in the form of 12 new workouts.

These workouts are supposed to stimulate mobility, power, speed, and agility to increase that athleticism.

Difference Between P90X2 and P90X3:

Basically, P90X3 is a shorter but more higher intensity workout compared to P90X2.

It’s the previous workout programs all jammed into one done faster.

That’s why it’s called P90X3 Extreme Fitness Accelerated.

P90X3 Workout Sheets

The workout sheets are pretty handy. They’re good for keeping a bit of a diary of your workout as well.

You can actually download the worksheets from here for free.

Conclusion

Is the program effective? Yes. But it’s very challenging.

Is it good for beginners? In my opinion – No.

Worth the $120 plus price tag? No. There are much cheaper programs that have proven results.

P90X Alternatives: Cheaper, Better and Beginner Friendly.

There are plenty of alternatives if P90X isn’t for you.

Check out Bodyweight Burn as a cheaper alternative (It’s Only $19).

This workout requires no equipment because it simply focuses on using your body weight.

You’ll find no fluff or marketing tactics like Beachbody use. This is just a solid workout program for a fraction of the price.

You don’t have to workout every day either.
