P90X Ab Ripper X is a intense 15 minute workout that comes on at the end of some of the P90X workouts. And it is a doozy.
The reason why is because those workouts use a lot of the ab muscles already and just as Tony Horton says, “you don’t workout abs everyday.” I have had some friends call this “thigh burner x” because you use your legs a lot.
The benefits of using the legs and thighs so much is that you really get a chance to work on your core muscles. These are the muscles from your knee caps to your pectoral muscles. Anything in between there is going to be worked out.

I took a video of me doing P90X Ab Ripper X and put it on YouTube. This video was taken after 90 days of doing P90X. Before I started P90X I could not finish Ab Ripper and now I can. I had to edit some of the “easier” ab exercises so the video would not be too long and kept the harder ones unedited so you can see how challenging it is.
I did not get a 6 pack from doing Ab Ripper and that is my own fault. The only way anyone will get 6 pack abs is by following a strict diet plan. I eat well but sometimes I over eat and I’m not gonna lie to you and say that I don’t endulge in a couple high calorie adult beverages from time to time.
Depending on the lighting (LOL) and what I ate that day I can see a solid 4 pack. The only way for me to get to 6 pack ab land is to cut out a good percentage of the carbs I consume. It will be hard.
The moves are pretty simple and the results you are going to get with P90X Ab Ripper X are going to amaze you. Sometimes I will do P90X Ab Ripper X after going for a run or if its late at night and I just want to burn a couple calories before I go to bed.
