P90X includes workouts that stretch your muscles, workouts that improve your balance, workouts that improve your cardio and, most importantly, workouts that build good, lean, healthy muscle. Today, we’ll be discussing one of those muscle building and toning workouts, the tenth P90X workout: Chest, Shoulders and Trecips
The first thing that you need to know about this workout is that it is hard! Many users who have written P90X reviews have said that this feels like the longest workout in the set (even though it’s not actually any longer than any other workout!). What will make it feel so exhausting it that you’re working a very limited number of muscles in your chest, shoulders and triceps repeatedly. For the ladies out there who always wanted to firm up that problematic tricep area – this is the workout for you!
This workout uses weights, and the most important thing for you to keep in mind is that heavier weights are not always better. What is important is that you focus on doing the moves using correct form. You shouldn’t overextend or over lift. If you need to use lighter weights in order to maintain correct form on the exercises, then by all means do. Your goal here is the end result of perfectly toned and ripped arms. The goal is not to be the person in your living room using the heaviest weights possible!
You’ll also find yourself doing no shortage of exercises that rely on your body weight in this routine. You may be surprised how much harder it can be to lift yourself against your own body weight than it is to use an actual set of weights!
This workout is packed with a ton of exercises, including all of the following:
- Slow Motion 3-in-1 Pushups
- In and Out Shoulder Flies
- Chair Dips
- Plange Push-ups
- Pike Press
- Side Tri-Rise
- Floor Flies
