P90 Workout Review | Tony Horton New 25 Minute Workout

25 Minute Workouts For Beginners – Tony Hortons New P90

p90popWell they went and totally changed up on naming conventions for us lol.

You would think after P90X3 they would create P90X4, but no way that is not how Tony Horton rolls!

Pretty much any program Tony puts out is top notch! I like what they are doing here with this new P90 workout. They are creating something that truly is for everyone. Now hear me out…. anyone can start any workout program, but if you are overweight and have not worked out in a long time then a workout like P90X or Insanity might be too intense for you. Sure you can follow along and many, many people have and had great results, but the truth is I would imagine many have failed because it might have been too intense, not just physically, but mentally as well.

With the new P90 workout they wanted to create a workout for anyone especially for people who have not done anything in a long time or ever at all.

p90-resultsMy Review So Far On P90? Started September 29th

  • You know when I do a review on this site I have done the workout. Sometimes I have done the full program and other times I have done it for a few weeks, a month, or picked and chose exercises.
  • With Tony's new workout I really had to test it out so I could give straight answers to people. Since this is geared for someone who has not done much in awhile or ever I wanted to see how a “seasoned pro” ha πŸ˜‰ would do!
  • As of November 2nd I am writing pulling from my notes and writing it here.
  • So I have basically jumped around a bit with this workout because I have been focusing on some other training as well.
  • Ab Ripper A, B, & C – Listen it does not take much to get your abs burning and working hard. You can feel the burn within 2 minutes if you do the right sequence! I love all three of these, each one has its own flavor and I do love the variety! Of course Tony shows you how to do them correctly, adjust if it is too hard and how to make the most of each one.Β  Was I struggling? You bet… my abs were on fire. They will be for you too!
  • Phase A – Sculpt & Sweat are great! I got through them pretty easy, but did I get my sweat on? Heck Yea! Was it a workout? Heck yea! Ill touch base more in my Conclusion Section below
  • Phase B -Same thing got awesome workouts in, but this time Tony is cranking things up a bit. I felt more like I needed a break getting to these than Phase A, but I can see how the structure really would work for people getting back into fitness.
  • Phase C – To be honest I have not tried anything from C, but when I do I will post about it.

Conclusion Of The New Beachbody P90 Workout So Far….

  • If other workouts have intimidated you then P-90 is for you!
  • As I went through the exercises I could see how it is made for people getting back into shape or starting a fitness program for the first time. With other extreme programs I take a lot of breaks even when I am in good shape! They are tough, so I could see how if I was not in any kind of shape I would prob hit stop and turn off the TV lol.
  • This workout gets you to where you need to be and the option is always there for you to turn it up a notch!
  • Does that mean you won't get tired or feel like you cannot go anymore? Of course not! You probably will, but just know that with pretty much any fitness regimen you get into the first 2 weeks are going to be tough, but after that your body adjusts physically and mentally! So push play…. go at your own pace… and let me know how you do!

  • CD says:

    This new “P90” is actually a remake of the original “Power 90” program. Power 90 has often been referred to in the past as “P90”; so, this is essentially an updated version of the original Power 90 fitness program. Power 90/P90 predated P90X – which is an abbreviation for “Power 90 Extreme”. P90X2 and P90X3 are likewise “extreme” fitness programs. So this new program would not (could not) be called “P90X4”, as it is not an extreme fitness program.

    • Chris says:

      Power 90 was actually the first home workout program I ever bought! That was back in 2001 on VHS lol. I remember it kicking my butt, in a good way πŸ˜‰

      Yes they want this to be the gateway workout into your fitness and lifestyle change! I think it is great because many people my get turned off to “Extreme” X type workout or “Insanity” as it can sound intimidating!

  • Chrissy says:

    I just completed p90x3. I’m going to move on and do the elite block, but after that I was thinking of doing p90. Is that taking a step backwards though?

    • Chris says:

      Congrats on finishing p90x3, how are you feeling?

      I think P90 would be fine. I like change. Sometimes we might think we are in great shape and we probably are, but when we switch up our routine to new things we may find it more of a challenge. That is a good thing in my opinion.

      So I would say give it a shot and see how it feels. It is not out yet so nobody really knows all the details, but I know it will be a solid workout

      • Krystal says:

        Does anyone know yet when the release date will be??


      • Frank says:

        I have done P90X and P90X3. Both were extremely challanging and I did get results. I probably would have gotten even better results if I had followed the nutrition plan, but I ate very healthy (my down fall was the beer……..). With that said, I have always been into fitness, but found out in P90X3, that my body cannot take the extreme workouts any longer (52 years old with bad knees and back). I need to lose some weight, but at the same time want to put some muscle back on (I have been weight training since high school football). Will P90 help with the muscle gain also? I notice it does not use the chinup bar.


        • Chris says:

          Ah the beer!! LOL! I tell ya… this last year I really cut out the drinking and it does make a difference. Not like I drank a lot πŸ˜‰

          P90 is right up your alley. Let me ask you this… How did you like the yoga in x and x3? I think it might be in your best interest to take a few local yoga classes. It really works wonders on the aches, pains, and flexibility which could get you back to doing the other stuff. Just my 2 cents, but P90 looks like it would be perfect. I have not used it yet, but it is on its way so I can go through some of the workouts so I can really give people the real deal on it!

  • Sammy says:

    How much will the entire thing cost?

  • Tim says:

    I’ve seen some promos on youtube. Why not show some of the progress the youtubers have made in your ad? Watching everyone with toned and tan bodies feels like you are missing the point of this program. If you want the common person to participate then show some footage of ordinary people trying the program.

    • Chris says:

      Tim I hear ya man! I mean listen… let us be honest. Most people are not going to get ripped! That is tough! Is it possible?? Heck yea, but it takes dedication and hard work. I do think a lot of these progress photos do set the bar high and leave people disappointed if they are not in supermodel shape after they finish the workout.

      If you look closer most people have done the workouts for 2 or 3 cycles as well, but with that said…

      I truly believe any of the beachbody programs will get you on track and healthy. I truly think people need to start looking at the lifestyle changer for LIFE rather than 60 or 90 days.

      Get your workouts in, eat healthy 75% of the time and enjoy life and don’t think life starts once you have a six pack or look beachbody ready all the time.

      These workouts are all just tools… in order for them to work we have to use them, but we must also have realistic expectation.

      Tony really does preach that a lot in all his workouts! This guy lives and breathes this stuff… he doesn’t drink alcohol, and has chosen to eat healthy prob 95% of the time. It is all there for the taking, but we have to put in the time and hard work…

  • Pete says:

    No Mas!
    Another P program?
    I can simply alternate weights, cardio, and stretching for 90 days and get the same results.
    Pay Beach Body more dough?
    Oh…no way, no more, outta dinero Tony.

    • Chris says:

      Ha Pete I hear ya! I think it can be a mental thing as well. For me I know getting a new workout system is refreshing for me, but yeah I mean you can do P90X for the rest of your life if you just switch it up.

      This new one P90 was created for the people who I think were a bit intimidated by some of the more Xtreme workouts like insanity, body beast, p90X etc….

      This at least gives them the foundation to get up and go…..

      • Trevor says:

        I did P90X last fall, I’ve been dormant and gained 20 pounds since, I have P90X3 but can’t seem to get into it. I want to get back into shape, drop 20 pounds and then do the P90X3 to get very lean, that is the goal at least. Is this P90 still not right for me?

  • Trevor says:

    I don’t understand this program. Maybe someone can help me before I buy.

    I’ve did the P90X program for 11 weeks and it was just OK for me, I didn’t lose much weight, I was stronger and leaner but that was not my goal.

    I am 203 pounds, I want to get back down to 175. I did this 2 years ago just simply by running 3 times a week and doing some HIIT runs as well.

    Does this program require working out everyday? what are the DVD titles? I can’t see to find any info, I can see the info regarding the 3 phases but this doesn’t tell me much, at first glance it looks like you only workout 3 times a week?

    Also, is there Yoga? please say there is Yoga!

    Please help, i really want a program, this running stuff is getting very boring and I am lacking motivation.

    • Chris says:

      Hey Trevor… if I were you I would either go back to P90X or give P90X3 a shot https://fitdadchris.com/p90x3/

      This P90 is really a workout to get people back into it or for people who have never done a workout program before. Anybody will get results from doing it, but if you have done P90X for 11 weeks I would say P90 would not be a very good option!

      • Trevor says:

        I did P90X last fall, I’ve been dormant and gained 20 pounds since, I have P90X3 but can’t seem to get into it. I want to get back into shape, drop 20 pounds and then do the P90X3 to get very lean, that is the goal at least. Is this P90 still not right for me?

        • Chris says:

          Yeah X3 is great, but I can def see not being into it if the moves are tough. You def need a few weeks of X3 to get stronger and better at some of the moves… I mean if you are looking for something that takes less time then p90 might be better, but I would prob jump back into P90X if time wasn’t an issue. Sure P90X gonna make you super sore first two weeks, but you be fine πŸ˜‰

  • sam says:

    so im skinny but i want to bulk up a little. but i dont want a intence workout. should i do this?

  • Samuel says:

    I have tried the P90X3 workout, but found that I had lots of trouble with the chinup routines and maintaining the push-up/plank position for it really to be effective.

    This is why P90 interests me. Can you confirm there are no pull-up routines or that the push-ups are kept to a minimum. I am wanting to get back into fitness but don’t think that I am really ready for the X routines yet.

    • Chris says:

      Yah know I have not seen them yet, but I am not 100% to be honest. I will have to take a peak and get back to you, but yes I get what you are saying and this workout is def going to give you the foundation to move to the next level is that is what you are looking for.

  • Danielle says:

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks so much for this post. I’m looking into purchasing the P90. I prefer a home program to the gym, and can be disciplined enough to do it. I’m basically looking for something inspirational and SAFE.

    So is this really safe for someone who is middle age and out of shape (53)? My weight is perfect, but the only exercise I’ve consistently done in the past 10 years is walking – with occasional yoga. Clearly I’m not getting enough exercise and I’m not fit (according to my 20 year old son, my arms are “weak noodles”). So building strength and boosting my metabolism now that I’m squarely in middle age is important to me.

    I do have a spinal fusion (correction for scoliosis as a teen), but CAN exercise. I know my limits and simply modify things.

    So my questions are 1) is this truly doable for a middle-aged, out of shape woman; and b) is it SAFE?

    Lastly, is the tempo of this program really fast, or do they walk you through things at a stead pace?

    Thanks again for this post and for helping others out!

    • Chris says:

      Hey there! Yes this program was made just for you.
      Just like anything all you can do is try it and see how you feel. They do offer a 60 day money back so why not! I do think you will love it!

  • Rory says:

    Hey chris, I am really interested in buying this program but I live in south Africa, will it be coming over seas?

  • Cyndy says:

    I have used P90X successfully in the past and love the program. I had the best results in 2013 losing 45 lbs over the course of 9 months. I was 15 lbs from my goal at that point but 2014 proved to be a challenging year, making working out difficult and sadly had be packing back on 26 of those precious lost pounds. I asked for P90 for Christmas hoping to kind of change things up a bit, but I’m worried that its kind of taking a step backward since I’ve used P90X successfully. Do you think P90 is too much of a step backward?

    • Chris says:

      Well it is better than doing nothing right πŸ˜‰

      I would say give it a shot. If it whoops you stick with it then do p90x again or just go back into p90

  • Johnny says:

    I just purchased this from beach bodyved on My wife and I did the original Power 90 and moved on to Les Mills Combat (That is a fun workout) and we both got great results. Probably the second best shape I have ever been in except when I was training 8 hrs a day for wrestling in high school over the summer. Fast forward a year and I am completely out of shape again and can’t bear the repetition of Power 90, it is almost as bad as jogging. However, Power 90 will get you in shape and I wanted something that was like Power 90 but updated. Hearing about the release of P90 seemed like they were reading my mind. Now I can’t wait to get started!

    • Chris says:

      Hey good to hear! Yeah combat is very fun! And… hey jogging is not so bad lol just gotta get used to it πŸ˜‰ Let me know what you think of the new p90

  • Have been doing the beginning P90 for about 3 weeks now. I feel I will be ready to advance to Sculpt B, Sweat B, but not ready to advance on AB ripper B. Should I just change or stay back in AB ripper A until I am there?
    Lost about 5 lbs. so far.

    • Chris says:

      Nice work! Abs are funny like that! I would say another week and move on.

      When I did the original ab ripper x I thought I would never get through the whole thing, but just at about the 4 week mark it all came together.

      It is a great feeling when you have that core strength!

      • Steven Harpold says:

        Similar question with Tom’s. I am 66. In sequence to move onto the C portion. I have great difficulty with the AB Rippers after Sweat workouts. I am thoroughly used up. Any suggestions on getting these done? Maybe take a sizeable break between the Sweat and Ab ripper? Thank you.

        • FitDadChris says:

          Yea I mean pace yourself or you can do what you can then try to do a bit more each time. Taking a break might be the best option then attack it again later

  • Millie says:

    I’ve been thinking about doing P90 for a few months, but I haven’t been sure. I haven’t ever done a fitness program, and I hardly do any exercise. My family are quite skeptical about fitness programs in general, and I’m not entirely sure that P90 isn’t just one of the fake “lose tons of weight in a short amount of time” things. Do you think its for me?
    P.S. I am only twelve, and I don’t know if its suitable for children.

    • Chris says:

      12 is a bit young you should ask your doctor, but also maybe take up some sport activities.

      Any workout program works you just need to use it πŸ˜‰

  • Jake says:

    By using heavy weights and not taking any breaks in sculpt or sweat I’ve gained muscle and retained excellent cardio.
    I like this better than X or X3.
    Agree Chris?

    • Chris says:

      Hey Jake I dunno! X3 is def on its own for me. For some reason a lot of the moves in X3 really work me hard! P90X is p90x, but yeah man I hear ya if you were to blast through it, I can see what you mean for sure.

  • natalie says:

    Hi there I am currently doing insanity max 30, three weeks in and loving it, however I am already thinking of what to do next. I like the look p90, but would it help me maintain my fitness levels since doing max 30. Thank you

    • FitDadChris says:

      Hey Natalie well the p90 is more for beginners but it will give you a great workout. Really depends what your goals area and how long you are looking to workout for.

      I mean if you really want to take it to the next level P90X will get you there for sure but you are looking at about 45-60 minutes for the workouts.

  • Curtis says:

    Just started the new P90 program yesterday! So far, I’m finding that the older Ab Ripper exercises are a little easier for me than the new Ab Ripper A/B/C.

    Could I substitute the old ab ripper program in for the newer one and to modify, for program A) do ab ripper 100, program B) ab ripper 200 and program C) do ab ripper 300?

    • FitDadChris says:

      Yeah as long as you are doing something! The originally ab ripper x is awesome so it doesn’t really matter which you do to be honest.

      Switching it up is always good mentally as well.

  • aubrey smith says:

    I am starting the p90x workout today and was wandering if there was a way to get sponsored

    • FitDadChris says:

      Hey there! Sponsored as in I will get you water and towel you off? Sure! haha JK! Whatever you need just hit me up via the contact link at the top and I will try my best!

  • Brennan says:

    Hey Chris!

    I’m a skinny guy wanting to start a workout to build muscles and bulk up/tone. All my life I have been skinny as my metabolism is high. However, my genes dictate that it should slow down soon (as evident to my predecessors) and right now at my mid 20s, I seem to be getting a slight amount at my tummy (not a lot but can see the slight bulge already), but my arms and such are still pretty scrawny.
    As said, my goal is to build some mass but ultimately get ripped and toned. So my question is, should I actually do the “sweat” sections? I don’t mind doing it, but I’m afraid that it may do more harm than good as in trying to bulk.

    • FitDadChris says:

      Hey Brennan. I would still do them for sure, just make sure you are eating more on those days. You have to find that fine balance of eating healthy, but eating more if you really want to put on the muscle. Your muscles need fuel and if you don’t eat enough then you are not going to grow!

  • John says:

    I like the strength alternated with cardio set up of new p90.
    If I ramp up the weights/resistance and push the sweat workouts will I gain muscle?
    P90X is great but I like full body workouts.
    Any thoughts?
