P90X is easily one of my favorite workout programs of all time. I’ve never had better results or felt better when I was fully emersed in an at-home exercise system. It is by far one of the best workouts in the world, and probably has a better before and after group than any program I have seen.
The Chest, Shoulders and Triceps workout is no exception. This will absolutely shred your upper body and is an intense and fun routine all at the same time. This is the 9th Disc in the series, and the entire workout should take you about an hour. There are 24 total exercises, and that doesn’t include the warm-up and cooldown.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at all of the exercises, so you can know what to expect before getting started.

Is the Workout Hard?
Yep! Just like all of the P90X workouts, you’re going to be working for your results! That doesn’t mean it isn’t fun, though. P90X is a blast, will get your heart rate pumping, the sweat pouring, and help you develop that lean muscle we all want.
The Chest, Shoulder, and Triceps workout is no different, either. As you can probably tell from the moves listed, you’re going to be feeling it when this one is over. Your upper body should be ready for a rest by the end. There are plenty of push-ups, flys, extensions, and presses – enough to really target these key areas and getting that nice looking, and chiseled upper body.
Two-Twitch Speed Push-Ups…What The?
Yeah, I had never heard of them before P90X, either. Or many of the other workouts, for that matter. Don’t worry, though, Tony Horton walks you through how to do every workout in the entire program, so if you see something that you don’t recognize or sounds too difficult, don’t freak out! Tony is there to guide you and offers modified versions to try until you get the hang of things.
The P90X Chest, Shoulder and Triceps workout is a fun and intense way to shred your upper body. Tony keeps things fast-paced and entertaining, and you will be feeling this one the next day.
