P90: Sweat A

Overview

If you haven’t had a session with Tony, this is a great introduction, along with the MMA (Mixed Matial Arts) moves. Don’t be too alarmed though as he explains everything and does go slow to get you up to speed. There is a modifier as in all of P90, so if you feel that your form isn’t quite right, or your body isn’t cooperating, you can tone it down. Alternatively if you feel it’s a little easy for you, then you can really push it to get a lot out of it. This is a solid workout that will attack a lot of body parts

Advice

Like always, pay attention to Tony for the instruction, and then watch the person you want to follow.

Equipment

  • Water (lots of it)
  • Towel
  • Court Shoes

Pros

A good intro to a MMA style workout, one that hits a lot of body parts

Cons

For a person that has done a lot of Beachbody videos, this feels slow, but honestly if I had found this 3 years ago I would have loved it even more. Workouts like this make it easy to get into the Beachbody mentality.
