P90 Sculpt A Advice
Like a broken record, but still pay attention to Tony, he knows what he’s doing and he does a great job of explaining what to do. If you need to modify do so, or push yourself if you need it.
P90 Sculpt A Equipment
- Water (lots of it)
- Resistance Band and Door Attachment
- Powerstands (Optional)
Tape is used to create an H on the floor, Tony’s is 24 inches wide.
P90 Sculpt A Pros
Hit’s all the primary muscle groups, and the supporting ones too. The variation of exercises is nice, and I did enjoy using the bands as there were a few moves I hadn’t tried before.
P90 Sculpt A Cons
It’s a slower paced workout than I am used to, but while I initially thought of this as a con, it’s still great workout as I did break a little sweat. It’s probably a better workout for those begining home workouts than for those that have been working out for some time.
