P90X Series: Core SynergisticsTony Horton
Year Released: 2004
The video is from the Power 90X set by Beach Body. This is the only video I have tried from this 12 tape set so far. I loved this video!
The video was just under an hour, but the time flew by. There was a huge variety of exercises, many of them I had never tried before. The video was tough at times, but never overwhelming. You are given a certain amount of time, and you set your own goals. You decide how many reps you can comfortably do. You can work at their pace and take breaks if you need it or you can go slower for the entire time and work up to their level. The video has a little bit of everything. There is some athletic style cardio, some upper body, lower body, abs, and a nice stretch. Overall I would give this video an A! This is the first time in a long time that I liked a new video this much the first time I tried it.
I like Tony. He cues well, and lets you work at your own pace. He is encouraging and gives options if you are not up to doing the routine as is.
