OK it’s post number two of the top 12 P90X exercises! Today we’re going to talk about one of the most intense P90X exercises that just so happens to be featured on the most intense P90X workout DVD that comes with the system. So without further delay I present “Jump Knee Tuck” from P90X’s Plyometrics workout. Plyometrics could be considered a sports cardio focused workout. It’s about 50 mins long and “Jump Knee Tuck” is an exercises that comes up more than once in that routine.
Jump Knee Tuck
It’s a tough one definitely harder than it looks in this little example
When Jump Knee Tuck shows up in the P90X exercise line up don’t be fooled. It may look like fun but it’s hard work! You basically have 30 seconds to do as many as you can. You can follow along with Tony Horton and the gang at their pace or you can go for “double time” doing twice as many in this time frame, at what I consider to be a pretty rapid pace. I usually opt for the standard pace but hey, overtime this may change as I work to increase my performance. How it’s done is fairly simple to describe. Basically you want to steady your upper-body. You don’t want to be flailing your arms around. Keeping that in mind you will proceed to jump up and pull your knees into your chest, then land on your feet again. Now repeat! And repeat, and repeat and…you get the point. It’s a P90X exercise you won’t soon forget and one that some people may have to work their way into. Want a small and I mean tiny taste of the P90X exercise routines? Go ahead and do 3-5 right now! That should give you a little bit of an idea of what to expect when you decide to take the plunge with P90X! I’ll see you here tomorrow as we expose yet another P90X exercise, this one from disc #3 Shoulders & Arms…
