One of the things that a lot of us are always concerned about when we buy an at-home fitness program like P90X3, is this…
“What else do I have to buy?”
LOL, so thats exactly why we are going to take a look at what’s required and what we can do without when it comes to P90X3 equipment. Who is up for getting awesome results and saving a buck?
These P90X3 equipment choices are going to be what is required to even participate in the workouts. Without these…you just cant do most of it.
What do you use, Coach Todd?
I have a set of adjustable dumbbells that go from 5-55lbs. The brand is LifeSmart and I got them for $175 from academy.com. Super great value and they have held up very well for the last 2 years of torture I have put them through!
I also use the P90X Chin-up Bar. Fits right in my doorway…it can hold a crap ton of weight…and its the most durable piece of equipment I own! And if you want the BEST results from the pull-up exercises in X3 – you will want a bar rather than bands.
This list of “P90X3 equipment” items are what I would call “non-essential” – meaning that you can still get great results without this stuff.
Here is a list of X3 equipment items that I use personally and that I think you should have in order to get the best possible results with P90X3.
Chin-up Bar – For many of the same reasons as I recommend dumbbells over resistance bands, a pull-up bar offers more advantages in:
The Tony Horton Signature Powerstands are friggin awesome! They take the pressure off your wrists and get them in a more stable position. Also, you have deeper range of motion. Highly recommend these!
Yoga Mat – I use this for exercises where I am on my butt. NOw that I dont have all that junk in the trunk, I dont have any cushion, lol. This takes the pressure off my tail bone and lets me do the move without pain.
Obviously you can get by with very little P90X3 equipment and still get incredible results. Its a matter of making the exercises challenging with what you have available to you. I have suggested the P90X3 equipment that I think will help you get the best results, but I have also shared what you can do without if you are on a budget. Either way…the results are up to you!
Time to BRING IT!
