What is a Foam Roller?

Tweet What is a foam roller? When I went out to L.A. to film the new P90X2 Shoulders & Arms video, I had no idea what a foam roller was. We were just starting the warm-up routine, and I’m sitting there, looking at this thing wondering what the heck I was going to do with it! For those of you who don’t know, it’s this long cylinder shaped...

How To Do Pull Ups

Tweet Yesterday someone posted in the “Josh’s Fitness Corner” group on Facebook that they currently can’t do a pull-up, and weren’t sure what they should do about it. This seems to be an issue that many people face, especially when going through P90X for the first time. They can’t do pull-ups, and they wonder how to do...

Powerblocks Review

Tweet Yesterday, while sitting at the computer working on answering emails, Facebook messages, and Twitter tweets, I became just a little too burnt out and decided to become a little ambitious for the remainder of the day and go shopping. Now for those of you who don’t know me, I’m not a big shopper, and I don’t like to purchase things for...

P90X Weighted Vest Review

Tweet It’s been almost a month since I have purchased my 40 lbs P90X weighted vest to start using during my workouts, and I have incorporating it into many of the P90X workouts, such as Legs & Back, Back & Biceps, and Chest & Back. I have also been using it for the Brazil Butt Lift workouts, and to say that I have experienced soreness is really...

Weighted Vest Exercises

Tweet For the past 3 months I have been talking about doing some weighted vest exercises, and purchasing a weighted vest to add in with my P90X, Insanity, and One on One workouts, but I just haven’t actually taken the plunge until now. Yesterday I decided to head over to Dick’s Sporting Goods and purchase an adjustable 40 lbs weighted vest and...

Powerblock Review

Tweet For those of you who don’t have access to a complete set of dumbbells (which is the majority of us), one thing you might want to consider are the adjustable dumbbells, which not only save space, but can save some money as well. Currently, I have a set of dumbbells that aren’t complete, but they get me through my workouts. However, I’m...

Weighted Vest With P90X

Tweet Just about all of you know that I have been doing P90X for a little over two years now, and that I’m constantly looking for ways to keep the muscle confusion going so I can continue to see results. As I have talked about in past blog posts, the ways to keep seeing progress is by making adjustments to both your diet and workouts. With the workouts,...

P90X Equipment

Tweet What P90X Equipment should I get? That seems to be a common question that I get asked, and it’s usually after they have already gotten the regular P90X, which just comes with the DVD’s, Fitness Guide, and Nutrition Guide. The fact is that you will need the P90X Pull-Up Bar, and either dumbbells or resistance bands. There is other P90X equipment...

P90X Peak Results Package

Tweet I’ve had many people purchase P90X off this site lately, and one of the most common questions I get afterward is “What else do I need to get to do P90X?” Sure, it’s great to purchase P90X, but you are going to need to have a pull-up bar, and either dumbbells or resistance bands if you want to do it right. One other thing that I...

P90X Pull-Up Bar

Tweet When I first purchased P90X, I wanted to do it right by also purchasing the P90X Pull-Up Bar. Beachbody didn’t have the Peak Results Package that they do now, so I had to get them separate. The P90X Chin-Up Bar actually arrived first, and I wasted no time in putting it together. The directions made it very easy to assemble, and about 5 minutes later...

Benefits of Using A Heart Rate Monitor

Tweet For the past few months, I have been really wanting a heart rate monitor, and have asked Melinda to get me one for Christmas! I have never used one before, but always see Tony Horton using one on each of his workout videos. You always see them on treadmills and ellipticals, so why are they becoming an essential part of your workout? There are many benefits...

Resistance Bands Review

Tweet When someone firsts contacts me who has just started the program, one of the most common questions I get is, “Should I get the resistance bands?” or “Will the bands work for me?” What is my answer? Yes. Why? One of the things I like most about resistance bands is their portability. If you are in a profession where you travel often,...

What’s the Purpose of Push-Up Bars?

Tweet A common question that I get from the people that I coach is, “Is it necessary to use the push-up bars?” My answer? If you’re looking to take your fitness to the next level, then yes. Why? Well that’s what I’m going to take the time to explain below! As you all know, push-ups have been one of the most used exercises over the...
