P90x Core Synergistics Workout Exercises

Updated on January 17, 2018

Working out is an interesting thing because there are many different ways to do it. One can go to the gym, lift weights, do cardio, and then leave; this might cause certain muscles to become visibly stronger, or give him/her more endurance when going for a swim in a nearby lake. However, unless you know what you're doing, such a workout could be worthless in real life.

You know what I mean. The kind of strength you need for daily activities, for, and this is not a joke, going to the grocery store and reaching for the carton on the highest shelf; you'd be surprised how many people actually strain a muscle in doing such a mundane thing. The point is is that daily life, and all the activities that come with, will strain your body; and therefore it makes sense to train your body to handle these activities.

And that's where the P90x workout comes in, one of the most popular home workouts on the planet, one that is becoming more and more popular every day. And what does P90x, and the leader Tony Horton, focus on? Workouts that will make you stronger not just visibly, but for daily life as well.

One of the best examples of this kind of training is the P90x core synergistics workout routine. The P90x core synergistics workout length is just long enough to get all the core muscles working, as well as upper body and and back at the same time. The result, after you've burned all the calories core this P90x core workout, are exercises that have made you stronger in the core and ultimately stronger for moving around on a daily basis (fear the grocery store no longer).

P90x Core Synergistics

P90x core synergistics workout focuses mainly on exercises that will develop your abs (and not just one part of the abs but everything in it's entirety. This means you'll feel the burn places you didn't know you could feel the burn.) Aside from the difficult core exercises, you'll be doing a workout that has a routine that involves both upper body and core at the same time; the best example of this is when you have to the plank, one of the best core exercises around.

The length of P90x core synergistics is longer than other P90x workouts, but this isn't a bad thing. The exercises you performed are varied, making sure you're never bored, and allowing you to have the enthusiasm and energy for each and every activity. Plus you'll get water breaks ever 5 minutes or so - not that will make you feel much better.

My favorite part of the P90x core synergistics workout guide is that Tony, and the other trainers, always make it fun and exciting. They'll give you variations of each workout, allowing beginners, as well as veterans, to perform the routine at the same time. Family fun? maybe.

P90x Core Synergistics Workout Guide

Some people have the opinion that P90x core synergistics workout is the most difficult out of all P90x workouts. While this may be true for some people, the workout never actually is too difficult for one set of muscles; it's more of a workout that brings all the different muscle groups together (hence the title of synergy). In the end it's a great workout that shouldn't be missed.

You'll start the workout with a warm up that involves some jumping jacks and jogging on the spot, somewhat similar to other warm-ups. After that you'll jump right into the workout with various push-up drills, and core drills.

One of my favorite core exercises in this P90x routines is the prison cell push-up. It has you doing a push up, then bring your knee into your chest, and then pushing yourself up onto your feet. It has so many different muscles going at once that it's pure brilliance.

Another favorite in of my P90x core synergistics review is the Bow to Boat. This is also a yoga exercise that will stretch you out, while at the same time work your abs.
