Core Ball Sandwich (1-on-1, Vol 2)

July 24, 2011 –

You can see my complete Volume 2 post HERE. You can also download the worksheets for this workout and all the Volume 2 workouts HERE

Disc 2 – Core Ball Sandwich

Length: 47 minutes

Target Muscle: Chest, Abs, and Back

P90x Replacement: Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X

My Recommendation Rating: 5 Stars (out of 5)

Equipment Required: Stability Ball, Basketball, Pull-Up Bar

We find Tony at Jackson Hole in his hotel’s gym. Frankly, it is a little strange watching this one since we are in the dead heat of summer and there is snow outside the windows at Jackson Hole . Tony takes us through an intense 47 minute routine.

This workout consists of 10 exercises repeated twice. Tony has 3 rounds of Back, Abs, and Chest. He throws in an Ab Bonus exercise between Round 2 and 3. By no means is this as intense as 30-15 from Volume 1. This still remains the hardest Chest / Back routine out there. However, what is nice about this routine is that is brings you through a tough routine in just over 45 minutes. So if you dont have 60 minutes for 30-15 plus another 15 minutes for an ab routine, this one helps you get a great workout done in short orde.

I did this routine twice before I did this review. I really wanted to get a sense of the workout before I gave my opinion. You can see the “ball obsession’ that will continue through P90X2, start here. The push-ups are on balls or spynix style. The pull-ups are targeted as high reps. And the ab exercises are all solid moves out of the Tony arsenal. I give it 5 stars. I really like this routine and its efficiency. I will be using it in my regular “Chest & Back” routine.
