If you work hard, put in the time, and don't ever skip anything. you will be greatly rewarded - at least that's what the P90x program leader Tony Horton tells you.
So is it worth it? Is he right?
You might have stopped by my Hub Ab Ripper X Workout Guide and tried out that P90x program, and if you did, you would have found that it's no joke. It's extremely difficult, but also extremely rewarding. After a month of Ab Ripper X you'll be noticing improved strength and definition.
The next hub in the series is the Chest and Back workout. Is it as good as Ab Ripper X?
Let's find out.
The P90x chest and back workout mainly focuses on different kind of push-ups in different positions. Some require to max out your reps, while some have a specific goal. The chest workouts include:

The program is divided into two separate rounds where you run through each exercise twice. The second time through they switch a few of the exercises up, make them, for some, a little hard, so the workout has nice variety. The best part of the P90x chest and back workout is that it doesn't require a gym pass, or a box of weights, or any kind of machine, you just need your own body weight and a good attitude.
Also the P90x videos are a good supplement to use when working out; Tony Horton provides great inspiration, and encouragement, as well - if your unsure of any of the exercises - shows you how to do them with clearness.
