The Workouts- Introduction
The unique variety of workouts you’ll find in P90X3 are not just to keep you from getting bored. They are an integral part of the science. From an almost endless pool of possibilities, the various “modalities” chosen become part of the Muscle Acceleration system were rigorously screened for not only individual effectiveness, but for how they integrate with each other and for how they progressively overload your system to force adaptation over the course of 90 days.
If you can’t move right, you can’t play right. Dynamix focuses on using your muscles, connective tissue, and joint function in symbolic actions to actively increase range of motion, flexibility, and stabilization. When worked in harmony, these systems are your keys to free and easy movement.
By engaging both the aerobic pathways, Accelerator increases cardiovascular and muscular efficiency, resulting in more bang for your fat-burning buck. You achieve this by exercising at two different speeds, each targeting specific energy systems. This unique combination eliminates downtime associated with power-based workouts, while maximizing the consistency of traditional workouts.
A century ago, Joseph Pilates founded a style of training he coined Contrology. By understanding the importance of controlling the body through its core while centering on breathing and balance, he revolutionized how we can strengthen the foundation upon which our bodies can better function and endure the effects of aging. P90X3 takes Contrology into the millennia by combining Pilate’s fundamentals with modern science, resulting in a workout that builds core strength and muscle elasticity, stabilizes the joints, ans creates a solid human platform to perform the activity we call life.
This is one routine designed to burn you out. Exercise is one of the few times in life where failure is a goal. With Incinerator, it’s your ticket to results, as you’re forced to bring it until there’s nothing left to bring. In exercise terms, failure is important in defining your limits. If you never fail, you simply cannot achieve your potential. This push-and-pull-focused workout uses back to back movements engaging the same primary muscle groups. The first movement targets hypertrophy (muscle growth) and the last movement pushes you just past your limit. With Incinerator, failure is your only option.
Old- School plyometrics is jump training. Welcome to Triometrics, X3’s state-of-the-art take on a plyo workout that goes far beyod simple jump training. “Plyometrix” here means explosive. It’s a highly effective means of training muscular efficiency or power. The downside of this training is the time factor. The more explosive force that’s created, the more downtime you need. Triometrics’ proprietary formula utilizes three different levels for every exercise, each targeting a different physiological response while minimizing the downtime needed between movements. The result is a workout that increases speed and power in a fraction on the time you’re used to training.
