P90X3 Agility X Overview
I didn’t like P90X3 Agility X at first, and it might have been because I didn’t do the tape right, and since I normally do workouts at 4:30am when I wake up, I can blame my fatigue. Then one time I did this in the afternoon and I absolutely loved it. There are parts that seem a little silly for a P90X3 workout, but overall it worked me when I was ready to be worked.
“Agility – This workout is all about using targets for precision, training for speed, endurance, balance, change of direction, and power. X marks the spot people, now all you gotta do is hit ‘em”
– Tony Horton

P90X3 Agility X Pros
Having the tape helped me push myself, and the several of the moves were difficult and really worked out my legs. Even though I wasn’t a fan of some of the moves I was sweating a ton by the end.
P90X3 Agility X Cons
Some of the moves are kind of silly, like the ring around the posey. It’s not that difficult to run around a 4 foot piece of tape and I felt like it was more of a cooldown move.
