Tony Horton, the creator of the Beach Body P90X Workout Program has put together 12 different workouts that can be easily performed in your home with only a few pieces of equipment. No need for an expensive Bowflex, Total Gym, or Bio Force TNT that costs thousands of dollars. P90X can help you achieve your fitness or bodybuilding goals.
These 12 P90X DVDs take you through a 12 week or 90 day program to get a lean and ripped body. Believe it or not, it does work. The following equipment is recommended for use with P90X.
The Black Mat by Manduka
With hundreds of mats to choose from, only one had what it took to bring it to P90X. The high-quality, shock-absorbing Black Mat by Manduka will reduce the stress placed on your joints and tendons during the P90X Plyometrics workouts, and will provide a secure and comfortable surface for the Yoga X Routines.
P90X Chin Up Bar – Pull Up Bar
Pull ups are an integral movement for upper body development, and for this reason P90X requires a bar that can be used for a variety of pull-up exercises. Beachbody had designed the ultimate P90X pull-up/chin-up bar to securely fit in most doorways. This valuable workout tool is ideal for performing the array of pull-up exercises used in this program.
B-Lines Resistance Bands
