“Will I develop my legs with P90X?” This is actually a question that I get quite often. In most of the success stories that you see on either YouTube, my site, or the main Beachbody site, the focus is on the upper body. However, just because the focus is on that area doesn’t mean the lower body is getting ignored in the workouts. That’s FAR from the truth! Legs & Back is the best legs workout I’ve done!
My Legs & Back review: This is the workout that will give your legs a beatdown! The one area that I never spent to much time on developing in the past was my legs, and it wasn’t until I started P90X that I began developing my legs. First of all, let me explain that I’ve been doing P90X for well over a year and a half, and my legs still get sore after each time I do this workout. This confuses the heck out of me because I never experience this kind of soreness with any other part of the body, but it happens. Even though I neglected to take pictures of my legs, which I wish I would have, I can tell you that I have seen some drastic changes! For one, I now have veins in my quads and calves, just like I do in my arms and chest. Am I’m not the one to brag, but my calves have gotten HUGE! I’m going to take a picture soon and post it on my site so you all can see what I’m talking about.
The workout consists of many different lunges using free weights, along with other exercises that focus on other areas, like your butt. The great thing about these lunges is that they are very unique, and focus on different muscles in the leg with each exercise. The toughest one for me is right in the beginning where you will put one leg on a chair and do single leg lunges with dumbbells. I hate (but love) this exercise because after I’m done my legs are spent, and they shake for the remainder of the workout, which is another 45 minutes long! One of the last exercises is the calf raises, and if you don’t feel an extreme burn here, then you are doing something wrong! I mean these things really burn! Oh and be ready to sweat. I’m not kidding, you will sweat just as much with this workout as you do Plyos! You feel completely exhausted afterwards! Just be ready to walk funny for the next 3-4 days because your legs will hurt like hell!
So for all of you that are worried that P90X won’t develop your legs, put your mind at ease because I can assure you that you will get results in your legs as you will everywhere else!
