P90X3 Workout: ACCELERATOR Review

Day 1 of the Lean program in P90X3 was ACCELERATOR. I liked the intensity and cardio in this one. There were also LOTS of lunges and planks which offered variety and a good workout for the legs and glutes. My heart rate was definitely way up, and my quads were on fire!

Each move was a minute long (which you don’t see with the video) and the speed varies from fast to faster. Overall, it was a challenging first day, but the 30 minutes sure went by FAST. Here’s my P90X3 Accelerator review (click here for the full list of other P90X3 workout reviews).

The good:

The floor work is interwoven into the whole workout and not just at the end, so that was good for me since in “traditional” workouts that save the core stuff for the end, I usually just get lazy and skip it. There was a lot of stability required (i.e. freezing in place in the middle of hopping back and forth, and while I wasn’t really good at it, I know I need it. I also liked that I could modify pretty much every move, and replace jumping with either stepping or squats.

The not so good:

It was only Day 1 for me. I was focussed on just getting through so I can’t think of any “not so goods” right now…:)
