P90X Kenpo X is one of my favorite P90X workouts. I remember when I first started doing P90X and when it was time for the Kenpo X workout. It ranks up there with workouts that I never would of ever thought of doing. Kind of like the P90X yoga x workout. I was always a go to the gym do some curls and bench presses kind of guy with some occasional running in between.
What Is P90X Kenpo X All About?
The P90X Kenpo X workout is more of a high intensity workout focusing on a lot of balancing. It is a complete body workout. For the better part of an hour you are throwing punches and doing kicks. It really is a fun workout because Tony Horton gets you throwing “Upper Cuts,” “Jabs”, and “Hooks” as if you were fighting somebody. My favorite moves are where you are doing punches and throwing an occasional kick in there. Speed is one thing that you will gain from doing P90X Kenpo X.
I have noticed better balance and an overall awareness of what my body can and cannot do. What I mean by this is by doing a martial art type of workout I have started testing out my reflexes, speed, and strength all at the same time. This is not some normal workout where you are working the same muscle. Here you are using all of them and working on getting faster with your kicks and punches. The P90X Kenpo X workout always seems to fly by so fast.
You will enjoy the P90X results you get when doing Kenpo X. I highly suggest doing P90X Kenpo X with a friend if you can. Its kind of a funny workout with Tony Horton running the show. This way you can have a few laughs with a workout partner while kicking some butt.
How Can You Make P90X Kenpo X More Intense?
After you have done P90X Kenpo X a couple times you might not feel like you are getting that much out of it. While it is a great workout, P90X Kenpo X is designed to be a cardio / recovery workout. More or less something to keep the body moving and having fun but it comes at the end of the week after doing lots of hard resistance workouts. To make it more intense try doing it with weighted gloves, a weighted vest, or both. I have done it using just gloves, the vest, and both. My back is always sore from throwing punches with the gloves on. Add the vest into it and the legs get worked out a little more.
All in all, P90X Kenpo X is a fun workout. You will work on your balance, cardio strength, and even a couple karate moves. This does not mean you’ll be able to defend yourself in a fight so don’t go trying it. Have fun burning calories with P90X Kenpo X.
