P90X in 90 Seconds: Chest and Back Workout Video

Posted Dec 10 2010 12:50pm

The Chest and Back workout of P90X is the first one you do in the program. As you know, I’m not a huge fan of push-ups. So at first, this wasn’t one of my most favorite workouts. In general, it still isn’t, however, I have come to like it more than I did. Remember, the P90X in 90 Seconds workout video does not include the warm-up or cool-down.  Further, the structure of this workout is such, that it repeats the exercises a second time, reversing the order of back exercises and chest exercises. I’ve only shown each exercise once:

For reference, here is the workout in more detail. I’ve provided my original impression and how I feel about each exercise now:

Group 1:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Standard Push Ups Not too difficult Same
Back Wide Front Pull Ups Not too difficult Same

Group 2:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Military Push ups More difficult Not too difficult
Back Reverse Grip Chin Ups Not too difficult Same

Group 3:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Wide Fly Push Ups Not too difficult Same
Back Close Grip Overhand Pull Ups Not too difficult Same

Group 4:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Decline Push Ups Much more difficult Not too difficult
Back Heavy Pants Not too difficult Same

Group 5:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Diamond Push Ups Extremely difficult Somewhat difficult. Like them better.
Back Lawnmowers Not too difficult Same

Group 6:

Muscle Exercise Initial Impression What I Think Today
Chest Dive Bomber Push Ups Very difficult…and awkward Not too bad now that I’m used to the move.
Back Back Flys Not too difficult Same

Now that you have seen the workout video, what do you think?
