My Tony Horton 1-on-1 Review

The Tony Horton 1-on-1′s come out every month.  It’s just Tony in his personal home gym with a cameraman.  If you sign up for the whole volume, you will automatically get the new one each month.  They are currently shooting Volume 3, which is the precursor / testing ground for the P90X:MC2 program that will be released in late 2011.

I have the whole Volume 1 which includes 12 workouts plus a bonus holiday workout.  If you are looking for something new after doing the P90X workouts then these are definitely for you. After two rounds of P90X (Classic and Maximum Mass Hybrid) I was ready for something new and fresh.  The 1-on-1 series was perfect.  The workouts are tough and I would never have tried them when I first started out, but as a P90X grad these are excellent.  I have incorporated several of them in my latest round and I must say I really like the format of working out with Tony as if I was at his house in his personal gym “Bringing It”.  You don’t have to subscribe to the entire volume, as there is an option to purchase them one at a time.  As you progress on your fitness journey you will find out what you like and what works for you, but for me I really really like the 1-on-1 series and plan to get them all.

My favorites:

Upper Body Massacre (30/15) = This is 60 brutal minutes of pullups and pushups, using different hand positions.  This gives me a pump like nothing else!  I haven’t been able to keep up with Tony the whole way yet, but my goal is to be able to get every rep by the end of my third round.

Just Arms = This one is great for Bi’s, Tri’s, and forearms.  No shoulders or chest or anything else.  Just arms!  After 45 minutes, the arms are rubber!

Diamond Delts = Tons of great shoulder exercises in this one.  It’s shorter (only 37 minutes), but a great workout.

Killer Abs = This is a combination of Ab Ripper AND Ab Ripper X.  It’s only 25 minutes long, but a big step up from Ab Ripper X, so I do this every week to totally burn the abs.

Fountain of Youth = This is a 45 minute yoga workout that gives me the same stretch and flex that I get from Yoga X but as I’m sure we all know 90 minutes of yoga sometimes is just too long.

If you want to customize your workout routine, look through the volumes and pick some 1-on-1′s that target your desired muscle groups.  They are very P90X-like, but without the cast and crew.  Also they don’t have the little time tracker on the bottom of the screen (which I wish they did because I love that thing!!).
