P90X3 Total Synergistics Overview

P90X3 Total Synergistics is Another P90X3 16 exercise workout that hits your entire body, and each workout hits multiple parts of your body. I like that you go from a leg to a chinup bar, and right into a core. As soon as you are at a burnout from a chinup, you go right into an exercise that works another part of your body so you can recover to do upper body later in the workout.

“Total Synergistics is a melting pot of resistance training, every exercise incorporates more than one muscle group and it uses stabilization training to force your muscles and your brain to work together, or synergistcally, allowing you to move athletically. It’s grace, it’s strength, it’s power combined.”
– Tony Horton

P90X3 Total Synergistics Advice

Side Rise Punch was tough for my wife and I to figure out while doing the exercise. It’s not a hard workout, but like some of his moves if you are already shaky and sweaty it’s tough to try the move while watching. I’d advise you scroll through the workout ahead of time to really get the moves down.
