What is the Power 90 Workout?
The Power 90 Workout was developed by Beachbody and trainer Tony Horton. This workout is what led up to the creation of P90X. Since P90X was built from a lot of the principles of Power 90 you will find the two very similar. There are two differences between Power 90 and P90X. The first one is the time.
The average length of a P90X workout is about 1 hour long, while Power 90 is about 40 minutes. The other is that Power 90 is better for people who are not in decent shape already. This makes a big difference because P90X is for people who have built up some level of fitness and are looking for the next thing.
If you consider yourself out of shape then going the Power 90 workout route might be better than P90X. To do Power 90 you need either resistance bands or dumbbells. To make the workout more comfortable you may want a exercise mat and Beachbody supplements.

I know I am probably doing this backwards but I have made up my mind and decided to give the Power 90 workout a go. I love P90X but have been doing it pretty consistent for the past year and I feel like its time for a change. When I do P90X now I know exactly when Tony Horton is going to throw out a funny joke and what exercise is coming up next.
What got me thinking about the change was when I became a Beachbody Coach and bought the “Showcase Pack.” Inside it was all of the top Beachbody workout DVDs including Power 90. I did some reading through it and the one thing that stuck out was that it had a lot of circuit training. This was not about lifting large amounts of weights or seeing how many pull up you could do.
It was about doing a certain amount of exercises in a short period of time and moving onto the next one that worked a different set of muscles. Another thing I liked was that each workout was only about 35 minutes long. Most workouts with P90X are about 1 hour and then another 15 minutes for Ab Ripper X.
One thing I wanted to get back into with spring right around the corner was running. Now when I do Power 90 for 35 minutes I can go for a 3 mile run right after or before and get cardio and resistance training done in the same time period I was doing P90X in.
I miss running as it was what helped me lose a lot of weight and get into awesome pre-P90X shape. What P90X did was help me put on 10 pounds of muscle to go along with the outstanding cardio that I already had. My P90X results prove that a skinny guy can put on some muscle.
From what I have read and the videos I watched is that Power 90 is going to give me a great workout but still give me the time to get my running shoes on and get outside for a quick run. This way I can maintain the muscles I built up in P90X and get my cardio back up to par. Its not that P90X ruined my cardio but I did bulk up (my choice) and now I want to tighten it all up.
I will be taking my after P90X/before Power 90 photos here and posting them up. Its kind of funny because it should be the other way around. I glanced at a couple of the Power 90 dvds yesterday and I can tell that this is before Beachbody blew up as a company because the dvds do not have the marketing appeal that the P90X dvds have. Tony Horton looks younger in it too. Here is a brief video describing Power 90 and the results people had.
