Winter is here, which means we can feast on Christmas cookies and eggnog and simply write it off as hibernation during the cold months.
But looming in the back of our minds is the thought of the springtime season when we have to get in shape after a season of
Luckily, the creator of the popular P90X workout series Tony Horton has a new military-style workout to help shed the holiday pounds!
22 Minute Hard Corps (ugh, even the name sounds intense) centers on workouts that promise to be just as extreme as his hourlong P90X workouts, but are less than half as long!
Speaking at We Are Fitness’ L.A. event on Wednesday, Horton said:
“There’s three cardio routines, three resistance routines, and then there’s four ├óΓé¼╦£special ops’ routines, which are more advanced. It’s kind of relentless. We go from move to move to move. Some are purely cardio-based, some are purely resistance-based. We’re using the human body, Mother Earth and applying the law of gravity in an eight-week boot camp style routine.”
Yikes! We’re sweating just thinking about it!
While noting the workouts are shorted, the 57-year-old fitness guru assures that users will get great results, adding:
“The results are close to P90X because of the sequencing of the exercises, because of the relentlessness of it, but also because we build a platform over the course of the eight weeks. We don’t beat the crap out of you the first week ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it’s introducing the movements, and then as it progresses, you’re working harder and burning more calories, even though the workouts still remain 22 minutes.”
Despite how intimidating it sounds, Horton promises that 22 Minute Hard Corps can be done by people of any age and fitness level!
“I’m the modifier, so I’m going to show three different ways to do an exercise. That’s essential. That opens up the program to more people ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ from teenagers to people in their 60s and 70s.”
Wow! This workout sounds like fun for the whole family!
