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.

Pros

  • Proven Effective Health and Fitness Results
  • Exercise Routines Target Entire Body
  • Extension Program to the Original Power 90 Fitness Program

Cons

  • May Require the Purchase Of Additional Support Equipment

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. Do you want to see free adult web cams ?

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.
