The Kenpo workout is by far one of my favorites of the P90X Extreme Home Fitness Program. I have many reasons for this, but I think the video encapsulates the biggest reason: I feel tough. I may not actually BE tough, but at least I feel tough. Further, because of the various exercises, I’m always a little sore the next day. Personally, I love the feeling that you worked a muscle that has been dormant for awhile. As always, due to the 90 second time limit this is what is not included in the Kenpo workout video below:
- The warm up and cool down
- Cardio Breaks
- Both sides of every exercise (each exercise is done on the right and then on the left)
Also, remember that this workout is about an hour, so what you see is extended over a much longer period of time.
I didn’t give you the exact names of all of the moves in the first Kenpo review. So, here they are (leaving out breaks):
Upper Body / Punches
Twist & Pivot
Twist & Pivot with Hook & Uppercut
Step Drag / High-Low Punch
Jab / Cross Switch
Hook / Uppercut Switch
Lower Body / Kicks
First Combo Set
Side Lunge with High Sword / Low Hammer
Step Drag / Claw / Low Punch
Second Combo Set
Front Shuffle with High Block / Low Punch
Knee / Back Kick
Front & Back Knuckles / Ball Kick / Back Kick
Hook / Uppercut / Low Side Kick
Now that you have watched the Kenpo workout video, what do you think? Do you think you would like to do this part of the P90X program?
