Power 90

Have any of you tried Power 90?  I bought the program about 2 years ago but gave up after only a couple of days.  If you haven't heard of it, it's a two-part exercise program with two different levels.  The idea is to complete the program 6 days a week for 90 days.  The first day is Sculpt, which incorporates lifting weights with lunges and squats.  The second day is Cardio/Abs, which combines yoga, kicks, punches, and other torturous moves!

Last week, my brother Chris and I decided to give all we had to Power 90 until we leave for vacation on May 16th.  Oh, my gosh!!  I LOVE IT!!  It is SO challenging.  I can't do all of the moves without modifying them yet, but I already feel so much stronger.  The Sculpt will make your arms burn like crazy, and the Cardio...well, the Cardio is HARD!  Cardio will definitely kick your butt.  I love that you don't need any special equipment other than some 5-pound dumbbells or resistance bands and that you get such an amazing workout just using your body.

The follow-up program to Power 90 is P90X, which is designed for people who are already in moderately good shape.  My goal is to do a full round of Power 90 after getting back from vacation in May and then move on to P90X.  I have also heard that P90X2 is coming out sometime this year and that it will build on the moves learned in P90X.  If you're looking for a good workout program but you have limited space and limited exercise equipment, I would highly recommend this program.  I have only done the Level 1-2 so far, but the Sculpt is only 30 minutes and Cardio is only 40 minutes long.

I would love to hear if anyone else has had experience with Power 90 or P90X. 


  1. I've never done Power 90 but I am doing P90X! I haven't done all the videos yet but so far, I'm loving the results. I really think changing up my exercise from pure cardio to incorporating the videos is what helped me break through the 130s!

    I've done Kenpo, Cardio, Ab Ripper, Plyometrics, Yoga, and Stretching. I've basically skipped the ones requiring weights and resistance bands because I don't have any yet!

    Best of luck to you!

  2. That sounds great! I can't wait until I'm ready for P90X. :)
