The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is an extension of the popular Power
90 fitness program and was created by Tony
Horton and Beachbody. Tony Horton is a well known
fitness instructor and health consultant within the
fitness industry.

He has been involved with Beachbody in bringing forth the Power 90 fitness program as well as the successful P90X fitness program. Like Tony, Beachbody is also well regarded within the fitness industry as one of the leading manufacturers of at-home DVD/VHS-based fitness programs.

Aside from their fitness products featuring Tony Horton, they have also produced successful fitness
programs such as Slim in 6, Turbo Jam,
ChaLEAN Extreme, Hip Hop Abs and Yoga Booty
Ballet. Similar to many of their other
successful series, Beachbody has created an
impressive Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program that is designed for those who
enjoyed performing the original Power 90
fitness program and were able to achieve
solid results from that program.

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is intended to continue from where
the original Power 90 fitness program left
off. It includes six workouts that are designed to
exercise and condition the entire body. The
Power 90 Masters Series fitness program
provides an overall comprehensive workout
that is designed to reduce excess body
weight, improve cardiovascular endurance,
increase lean muscle tissue and strength, and
promote a toned and sculpted physique.
In addition, each individual exercise workout
can be purchased separately, allowing you to choose which specific exercise routines you
would like to add to your existing workout program.

Intent of Fitness Program

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is designed as a series of
workouts that each focus on a specific
fitness theme. Each workout is independent
and can be purchased individually or in its
entirely. In both cases, the Power 90 Masters
Series fitness program is designed to
complement the original Power 90 fitness
program.

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program includes the following:

  • Core Cardio Workout
  • Plyo Legs Workout
  • Sweat 5-6 Workout
  • Sculpt 5-6 Workout
  • Cardio Intervals Workout
  • Upper Middle Lower (UMB) Body Workout
  • Fitness Guideline

Primary Areas Worked

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program follows the same approach as the
Power 90 fitness program in that each workout
focuses on a specific theme. However, each
workout is designed to improve your
cardiovascular capacity, promote weight
loss through caloric expenditure, and improve your energy efficiency while
providing low impact, high intensity lean
muscle mass gains.

For example, the Cardiovascular Intervals
workout includes an expanded warm-up and
stretching portion when compared to the
original Power 90 workouts. The workout then
progress to a sequence of exercises that
begins with jogging in place, jumping jacks,
lunges, squat kicks, tires and squat runs.
The sequence ends with a 15-second break
before repeating the sequence again.

The goal of the workout is to exercise
at an intense level that taxes your
cardiovascular capacity before providing a
break to catch your breath and allow for your muscles to dispose of any
built-up lactic acid. After the sequence has
been performed twice, another completely
different sequence of movements is
introduced. Finally, the workout session concludes with a cool-down and stretching
routine. Each exercise workout section is
performed for 60 seconds.

Another new inclusion into the Power 90
Masters Series fitness program is the
Upper-Lower-Middle body workouts which
begin with a 6- to 7-minute cardiovascular workout designed to elevate your
heart rate and warm up your muscles. The
exercise workouts are then broken down into a
series of sequences that will have you doing
one upper body exercise, then a core
exercise, and finally a lower body exercise. After each sequence, a 15-second
break is given for recovery. By the end, however, you will be working through the sequence without any breaks.

The exercises include wide leg switch
hand push ups, lunges, twists, two-point
back kicks, run-stance squat walk, plant to
side arm balance, high twists with pivot and
a few other moves that are either
performed for 20 to 70 consecutive seconds
or for 20 to 30 repetitions. The
workouts are designed to provide a balanced
flow through the routine while still forcing
your muscles to work not only during the
exercises, but also by having to alternate
between the workouts at a quick pace.

Program Length/Frequency

It is advised that you use the original
Power 90 workout schedule and simply
implement the Master Series workouts into
your routine for additional health and
fitness benefits. The original Power 90
basic schedule is essentially the following:

  • Day 1: Cardiovascular & Abs
  • Day 2: Circuit Training
  • Day 3: Cardiovascular & Abs
  • Day 4: Circuit Training
  • Day 5: Cardiovascular & Abs
  • Day 6: Circuit Training
  • Day 7: Rest

Each of the Masters Series workouts are
40 to 60 minutes in length, so it is advised
that you only perform one workout per day.
It is best to start the Masters Series
fitness workouts after completing all 90 days
of the Power 90 fitness program. Through this approach, you can begin a new exercise routine
after the 90th day that includes the Master
Series workouts, which will add in the
necessary variety to keep the program well-rounded and fresh.

Effectiveness/Results of the Program

The effectiveness of the Power 90 Masters
Series fitness program is on par with the
original Power 90 fitness program. The Power
90 program produces solid health and fitness
results. The original Power 90 fitness
program provides an effective series of
workouts that produce weight loss success
stories ranging from 25 to 60 pounds lost, along with significant reductions in body fat
percentage, improved muscle density and
strength, and an increase in cardiovascular endurance.

The Power 90 fitness program and
the supplemental Masters Series fitness
program provide total body workouts that are
intended to promote weight loss through
additional caloric expenditure and consuming
a healthier low fat diet, improvements in cardiovascular capacity, and
increases in strength for the upper, lower
and core areas of the body.

Equipment/Space Requirements

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is an extension program for the
original Power 90 fitness program. Hence, the
assumption is that you already have the
additional equipment that is needed to
successfully perform the exercises.

More specifically, you will need an
exercise mat and either a set of dumbbells or
a few different grades of resistance bands.
Naturally, it is best to have both forms of resistance to provide you with variety, but
using only one will be sufficient. You will need a moderate amount of
space to perform the ground exercises,
stretches and cardiovascular workouts.

Physical Requirements

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program does not have any particular
physical requirements, but because it is an
expansion package, it does assume that you
already have knowledge of the Power 90
fitness program and know how to perform
several of the various exercises. Because of
this, it is best to consider purchasing the
Power 90 Masters Series fitness program after
you have completed the original Power 90
fitness program. Once you have completed the
original fitness program, the Power 90 Masters
Series expansion fitness program is a
reasonable way to continue your weight loss and
to assist you in achieving your personal
health and fitness goals.

Support

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is a Beachbody product, and is
supported with a customer service system that
includes the following:

  • Live chat support
  • 24/7 telephone line
  • Online email service
  • Online message board community
  • Online FAQ database

Cost

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program can be purchased for 3 monthly
payments of $ 19.95 plus $ 9.95 for shipping
and handling. For this price you will receive
six workouts and a guide to help you set and
achieve your personal fitness goals.

Alternatively, you can create your own
fitness program by purchasing each workout individually for a cost of $ 19.95 per
workout. However, purchasing the entire
Power 90 Masters Series fitness program in a single order will
provide the most value for the money.

In addition, those who enjoyed the
original Power 90 fitness program and would
like to incorporate several additional
workouts into their exercise routine can do
so by simply purchasing the Power 90 Masters
Series fitness program.
If this is the case, you may want to purchase
the entire set of workout DVDs at once, as the $ 19.95
price per individual workout provides a
lesser value when compared to the 6-workout
package price.

Summary

The Power 90 Masters Series fitness
program is a solid collection of exercise
workouts that will provide those who
enjoyed the original Power 90 fitness
program with a supplemental selection of
workouts that they can add to their existing workout regimen. The workouts themselves are
similarly themed and styled to the original Power 90 workouts, and each
workout is performed for approximately 40 to
60 minutes.

The Masters Series fitness program is not
intended for those who are looking for a
starter program. However, for individuals
that are just beginning a health and fitness
routine, the original Power 90 fitness program
is a good starting point. In addition, the
Power 90 Masters Series fitness program is an
excellent choice for individuals that are
looking to add additional variety into their
current exercise routine and want to continue
to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

This being said, the Power 90 Masters
Series fitness program is well designed and ideal for individuals that enjoyed the
original Power 90 fitness program. By adding the exercise routines from the Power 90 Masters
Series fitness program to your existing
workout routine, you will ensure that you are continually improving your cardiovascular
endurance, eliminating any excess body
weight, increasing your lean muscle tissue
and strength, and improving your
coordination, balance and flexibility.
