So who likes to work the core? I certainly do. The more I dug into Insanity, I realized the value of having a strong core. it affects so many areas of your body, your everyday life from walking, picking things up, playing ANY sports and just your general all around sense of feeling good. So Tony Horton, has this One on One series in which he publishes each month a new workout. It’s just Tony and you getting some one on one time. The fun thing about these workout’s is that from what I can tell, since I have never met him in person yet myself, is you see Tony more himself. He’s relaxed, there is no rigid structure and you get to have some fun while still getting a GREAT workout.
Core Ball sandwich is about 40 minutes long in duration. You go through 10 exercises, 2 times through.
- side arm crunch
- stability ball push-ups
- knee up pull-up
- stability ball plank crunch
- ply ball push-ups
- big ball crunch
- Round house Pull-up
- V-ball core crunch
- sphinx Push-ups
This is a great workout is quite fun. My core was sore after this workout. It really got me in areas I hadn’t worked or wasn’t working hard enough. :). The 2 that really were tough were the stability ball push-ups and the sphinx Push-ups. I could barely muster out 6 full push-ups on the stability ball. The best part is that it leaves me with lots of room for improvement. But truly the thing to come away from this is that by adding in a variety of workouts/exercises into your program, you will find that you can work areas of your body that either aren’t as focused on during your current program and mixing it up, creating that ‘muscle confusion’ you are going to get better results in the long run. That’s one of the benefits of P90x and as the incorporation of the One on One series.
Take a look. Volume One is hands down a great set that you can alone create a killer workout program. Volume Two has continued this tradition and I continue to look forward each month to the next workout. Who’s game? Go here, click shop and take a look. You won’t regret getting these 2 series. If not your style, you can also look at the ample amount of programs for all levels of fitness! contact me with any questions. Love to help out.

Pure cardio from Insanity is one of my favorite workouts. That and it’s cousin the Max Cardio Conditioning are wonderful straight cardio workouts that are designed to test your cardio endurance and work up an awesome sweat. You will need your Recovery Formula for this one. :)
So I have been replacing out the main cardio programs that come with the Base P90x program with Insanity’s cardio workouts. I wanted to make sure that I maintained some of the cardio endurance that I got from my 2 rounds of Insanity. It would be a shame to lose it all after the amount of energy put into the programs over the 4+ months.
You can find my first review of Pure Cardio over here. I have done this one many times and it is still a great challenge. You are pushed from the moment it starts till the end with zero breaks of than the stretch period. During the main cardio sequence you are put through many different exercises which are designed to keep your heartbeat elevated to burn the goo! Good form is critical I feel during this and all workouts because you are moving fast and you tend to just go in without thinking. But you will find, that all great trainers will always emphasize form/quality over quantity. You reap the rewards when you do your movements correctly because your muscles and everything will be working optimally.
If you are looking to start a program for the new year, contact me. There is no reason that we can’t all get healthy and feel good about ourselves everyday. Make a resolution now. there is no reason to wait. Start NOW, go into the new year with a purpose, with goals in hand and a desire to become a better you.
Join me each night in WOWY @ 9PM EST. BuddyName: KevinPrice. Create Accountability for yourself and me. You are not alone, but it does take you to get started! You have to find that internal motivation to Decide to get started. Then Commit to your program, and you’ll be amazed at the Success in the end.
So day 5 (Legs & Back) of my 3rd round of P90x is complete. As mentioned before, I am doing a hybrid with Insanity this time through. Now it has been literally 4+ months since I have done this workout. So I was a bit scared. :). Well more nervous than anything. Because, when your done with this workout, if your really pushing yourself, you’ll be just sloppy legged by the end. :).
And there was no exception to that today. I was feeling pretty spent by the end of the 58 minutes of Legs and Back tonight. Even after going 2 full rounds of Insanity which focused on cardio and a large amount of plyo work, my legs were still exhausted by the end of this workout. Which I was glad to have. Shows that you can continue to push yourself harder in different programs, plus, that muscle confusion and variety help to continue to push your fitness level.
You start with a brief warm-up (high knees, run in place, jumping jacks, head roll, windmills, hugs and shrugs). From there you go into basically 25 moves each with varying lengths of time. Some are to max reps, others are set to specific # of reps or sets. Here is a sampling of the exercises. Balance lunge, calf raise squats, wide front pull ups, alternating side lunge, single leg wall squat, mountain climbers, reverse grip chin ups, sumo (aka grocho) walk and more. Alternating between working on the legs and the back each time throughout the entire workout.
On top of Legs and Back I did the Cardio Abs workout from Insanity. This is another one that kind of sneaks up on you. Sure, a mere 16 minutes. But it works your core from so many angles that it is highly effective. By the time I got to the low/high plank move at the end, I was ready to be done. :).
As always, tony Horton was fun. He finds a way to keep you motivated and engaged during the entire routine and wanting to push hard for each exercise in the routine. “What is your soup?”
So think about that motivation that gets you going each and everyday to press play. If you haven’t quite found that motivation yet, let’s find it. We all work off of different factors that help to get us excited to want to be healthy and fit. The majority of it needs to come from within. External factors help, but in the end it is YOU that has to put the disc in and press that button. I’m here to help you figure out what works. As a beachbody coach it is my goal to work with you and figure out the things that will do this. Contact me, let’s transform ourselves both physically and mentally into the people we want to be. If your interested in P90x, let me know. I can definitely fill you in on the details or you can go to my P90x Information page which can get you started.

This was a fun workout. I have been playing catch-up with the latest Tony Horton One on One’s and this is the latest one I’ve done. It is broken into three 10 minute workout’s. Each focusing on different areas and purposes.
The first 10 minutes is called 20/12 abs.
The idea behind this one is that Tony is doing 10 minutes of abs using a pull-up bar and the floor. He does 20 of one exercise on the bar, then 12 of another exercise on the floor for 10 minutes switching exercises. You get a great burn from this routine. Your abs will be feeling it within this short 10 minute period. These are controlled moves that you will want to have good form on.
Something to remember is that he does not do a warm-up first. So you will want to spend a few minutes warming up your body. Short cardio with a mix of stretches should suffice.
I enjoyed this one. I had to do some re-positioning with my pull-up bar due to it’s location to do some of the moves. Mine is in a doorway and I don’t have that much room for some of the moves. I managed, but it would be more ideal to have a larger area.
The 2nd 10 minutes is called Legs of Gold.
As the title suggests, you are working your legs. You’ll be doing lots of squats, lunges, and other moves that will focus on your legs, gluts, etc. Tony is his usual self during the 10 minutes, keeping us entertained from beginning to end. I thought this to be a great workout considering the short 10 minutes period. But the best part is that we already know how good Tony is at an effective workout in 10 minutes, with his 10-minute trainer program.
The 3rd 10 minutes is called Shadow Boxing.
So during these 10 minutes the goal was to get you moving to some jump rope and shadow boxing. Simple 10 minutes switching in between jump rope and boxing moves. When this one on one was released it came with a jump rope.
I’m not the most coordinated at the o’ jump rope so I got in and did my best. But it was great at getting my heart rate pumping, arms moving. Jumping rope as a whole is a nice workout. If you don’t have a jump rope just fake it. Keep the arms moving in the motion and you’ll still get a nice workout. It’s great cardio so you’ll be surprised at how nice this actually works. The shadow boxing was fun. Tony and Mason’s interactions and such always keep you in a fun mood during your workout.
The key is that you are working out, but your not really realizing it and having some fun. In the end you get an awesome 30 minute workout. Not too long, great for those that don’t have a whole lot of time but want to get a mix of workouts in and hit many parts of your body in that short time period.
Tony at his best singing, if you can picture that “10 minutes, I'm going to train you , 10 minutes, it’s gonna change you 10 minutes, i don’t blame you”
So if you haven’t seen any of the tony Horton One on One’s there are a lot. They are currently in volume 2 right now. Volume one has 13 workouts and can be ordered in it’s entirety and or individual workouts. Also you can get on the monthly subscription for Volume 2 that is currently going on. These workouts make for a great overall program if you are interested in putting one together with it, or as add-on's for variety to your current programs (CHalean extreme, Insanity, P90x, etc).
Have fun. These are awesome workout’s. Contact me with any questions. Love to talk with you about these or any others.
So I didn’t get my first 4 days of my P90x Round 3 program posted originally. So I'm kind of backtracking on this one. I will give a short update on how each day went. It has been a great start to my 3rd round of P90x. I totally forgot how tough the program was. I took that 4 month hiatus to do Insanity for 2 rounds and wow, come back and it definitely making me work hard. Which is good. That is what I was hoping for. Not that I wasn’t working hard, pushing myself each and everyday in Insanity, but this is a different type of workout program.
One thing that I see many people confuse is the differences between P90x and Insanity. P90x is geared towards working your entire body through cardio, resistance training and yoga. Along with a very aggressive nutrition plan that when followed gets you extreme results. Insanity is a 60 day total body ‘conditioning’ program designed to aggressively increase your cardio stamina, create quick weight loss if structured right and get you ripped pretty fast. The one common factor between these 2 programs is that they WILL get you ripped if you follow them explicitly.
Day 1 –> Chest & Back / Ab Ripper X (58 / 16min) What can I say about the first day. WOW. Maybe a bit of ouch is in order also. :). So I was still just coming off of my Insanity round when I picked up into this hybrid. I knew it might take me a few days to get really back into this programs mindset. I was ‘lost’ as the wife called it this first day. I had forgotten what exercises would be coming up. Had my equipment spread all over the place, it wasn’t a pretty site. But, with all that going on, I still was able to maintain myself and get through the workout and be effective. I will say I was exhausted by the end. Ab Ripper X, per usual, got me in the O’ hip flexors, but it was a TON better than what I had remembered. And I owe that all to Insanity’s workouts.
Day 2 –> Plyometric Cardio Circuit (44min) I love this one. Been doing this workout for 5+ months now. We’ll before Insanity came out and then throughout the first 2 rounds of it. I love how exhausted and how well this workout was put together. This was a great preview when it came out with one of the Tony Horton one on one discs. This is a great replacement for Plyometrics that comes in P90x.
Day 3 –> Shoulders & Arms / Insane Abs (58/26 min) So on to the 2nd day of weights in the program. i finally got my act together on this one. I had my equipment in order, was mentally prepared more and ready to really Bring it and I did. I upped my weight and got into a great groove with what I wanted to accomplish during this workout. You find it does indeed do everything it says for your Shoulders and Arms. I added in insane abs from Insanity rather than ab ripper X, because this is all about getting results, creating a variety for the body that will allow it to grow continuously for 90 days!
Day 4 –> Yoga X (only got 40 min) What can I say about Yoga X. it’s long, it is tough, it does its job. I was only able to do about 40 minutes though due to some work I was doing that night. I hadn’t realized it and so I didn’t get to do the whole thing. But the 40 minutes I had, I felt every second of it. :). I hadn’t done any Yoga other than one day doing the Patience Yoga from Tony Horton One on One program. So it will take some getting use to during the next 3 months again. But I’m excited.
So that is my wrap of the first 4 days. I loved it. There isn’t anything better than mixing in 2 of the best hardcore products that BeachBody offers. They both offer their own unique flavor of working out. Each Trainer (Tony Horton & Shaun Thompson) are amazing. They both know how to get you motivated, get you engaged in your workout to want to get results and get yourself healthy. They are there to help you reach your goals!
Let me help get you started. Let’s find that motivation, that reason to get healthy. There is no reason we shouldn’t be making a lasting impression upon our children and others that being healthy is the right thing. Give me one hour of your day and and lets see where it leads. Decide. Commit. Succeed!
Join me in WOWY each night @ 9pm EST. BuddyName: KevinPrice Accountability will help keep you on track for your program (P90x, Insanity, Chalean Extreme, Slim in 6, Turbo Jam, Brazilian Butt Lift, Revabs, etc). interested in any of them , take a look here.
SO yes, my next 90 days has been laid out. It will be P90x with a little Insanity flavor added for cardio. I’ll be holding true to the P90x weight days while flipping out the cardio based days with insanity and a few One on one’s. I enjoy the variety so why not utilize it since I have them.
Below are the next 13 weeks of my workout program. I hope that you will find it interesting enough to follow me and let’s see what we can get out of our programs.

|You can substitute in and out many of the Tony Horton One on One workouts for both the P90x weight days and of course switch in and out cardio days for different workouts. Key is finding what matches your goals. ||Did you bring it today? ||Are you ready to push yourself to the next level? |
So Round 2 of Insanity, in the books. Has this been a fun ride? 100% yes. would I do it again? HELL yeah. Will I stop using Insanity? Are you nuts! There is no going away from insanity for me at this point. I’ve become a huge fan of the cardio endurance and intensity level that Insanity brings to your workouts. Will I complete another full round? Tough to say at this point.
Latest Video Update on YouTube here.
I will say, back to back rounds of Insanity is very tough on the body I wouldn’t recommend it for most people to attempt. Why did I? I wasn’t ready to give up insanity at the time, I wasn’t ready to mentally focus on something other than my cardio endurance at the time. I felt that the initial 63 days just weren’t enough to push my body. Well, i can tell you after 126 days, I pushed it hard and I’m ready for the next challenge (hint, post coming soon about what is next, and it will still involve Insanity).
So lessons learned from my many a hour doing the program. Shaun Thompson gives you all the advice you could ever use in each workout. He has given you a blueprint if you will to getting your body into the best shape of your life if you allow it to. Listen to him, you won’t regret it.
- Focus on form
- Quality over quantity
- keep the butt down
- Keep CORE tight
- Take breaks
- Do what you can and modify as necessary. Don’t get frustrated. Do your best.
- Stay hydrated before, during and after the workout.
- Use a Recovery Drink
- Stay Motivated! Push through every exercise as if it was the last one.
- Accountability – Stay consistent and press play each day
- Have FUN! My motto, and reason I get in there each and everyday. If you aren’t enjoying it, don’t do it.
What I have also learned from the people that I’ve gone through the program with, helped go through the program or are currently going through it, that it can be done by a wide variety of people. It’s designed for folks that have some fitness background already. But I’ve seen people with high motivation and determination stick to this program and be successful. They’ve gotten results and they are very happy. With that said, it really isn’t meant for everyone. You really need to think about what you are trying to achieve. Figure out your goals and talk to me first. Contact me and we can find out if it is meant for you.
So are you ready for one of the best cardio and physical challenges of your life? Are you ready to take a leap forward in getting your body tuned and sculpted into something you’ve never seen before? Are you going to get outside the box and take a chance. If you answered yes to any of these, then let’s talk. Insanity will work for you.
KP is happy, fit, highly motivated and loving life! Let me help you feel good about your health and fitness. Join me!
We all do it at some point or another. I will be the first to admit I’ve used excuses before. I Kevin Price have made excuses for not doing the right thing!. I did it for many years making up the usual reasons to not do what was right for myself. I mean, it is rather simple isn’t it? So why do we do it? Why do we continue to ‘enable’ ourselves to not live up to our potentials; to find those little reasons to sit on the side lines. Why continue to feel like we are wasting away? Why continue to go down a dead end path?
It’s not rocket science. I want to see you get healthy. Stop eating fast food.
Here are a few statistics:
- 110 Billion dollars are spent annually alone in the US on ‘Convenience’ foods.
- 15 Million Americans are considered Morbidly obese
- Current trends have our children NOT living longer than their parents if things continue.
I saw this video and thought that it was perfect for explaining why there is no place for an excuse today, tomorrow or any other day. Watch this video, you’ll see there simply is no reason for it. You want motivation, here it is. Get up off the couch. Get out your recliner. Get moving today and make a difference in your life and your children's. Let’s get healthy!
Contact me if you are ready to make a change. Here to help you anyway that I can to get moving in the right direction towards a healthy lifestyle that will transform you into the person you want and should be. Help yourself, help our children and their children understand what is the right way!
The past 2 weeks have been great. Really loving the intensity that Insanity continues to bring even in the 2nd round. Shows the longevity of the program and the reuse people will get from it. I’ve been really focusing through this 2nd round on getting the most of each workout. Looking at ways to continue to being consistency with form. I think in the end this will pay off the most. Believe me, there has been no shortage of sweat pouring off me each workout. :)
I’ve continued to include 3 days a week the upper body weighted workout from the deluxe package. I’ve really enjoyed including this during the 2nd round. I have felt stronger and definitely noticing the changes by including it. The entire deluxe package has been great overall. Still feel my favorite workout is the Max Interval Sports training running a close 2nd is the Max Cardio conditioning and max interval circuit.
So what are you enjoying in your program? What are you finding has been the greatest challenge for you during your workouts? Insanity is meant to push you to a new level of fitness by getting your body to work harder for longer periods of time, with shorter rest periods. The concept is sound, and the results are seen from the many transformations that have been seen. I myself have seen and felt the results. Love it.
Are you ready to get started before the New year on your own transformation? Many people tend to wait till the first of the year and use their New Years Resolution as their motivator to get started down that healthy lifestyle track. It is a good motivator. But there is no time like the present. Get a jump start. Don’t wait. Think about what you will feel like if you start now and come New Year’s you’ve already begun to see great changes. The key is making that decision to get started. Stick with it once you do. I’m here to help you from day 1 of your program through the end. Let’s do this together, let’s find what works for you to keep you motivated and energized about getting healthy.
Contact me, and I would be happy to go over the different workout programs. P90x, Insanity, Chalean extreme, slim in 6, and many more. All designed to fit the various fitness levels. Let’s do this people. Join me each night in WOWY, @ 9pm EST. BuddyName: KevinPrice. I would love to workout with you and keep you accountable.

I’ve been a slacker. I know it. really bad these past 2 weeks with my site updates. I’ve not missed any workouts though. I won’t get low level on that. Don’t worry. :). But now back on track to get the site updates back to the normal routine. So the recovery week well. I did however make an adjustment. I ended up going for a more active approach and used the Insanity Max Interval sports training workouts. I had been really wanting to hit those hard and well seemed like a good week to do it. :) I had a blast. It really kicks your butt pretty hard I felt. The deluxe package is well worth getting. Let’s have some fun!
