My P90X3 Fitness Journey continues! Did you all miss me? Don’t worry I’m still pushing play every day on P90X3. Today I am sharing my P90X3 Triometrics Review.
Yep. Put on those big girl or big boy pants and let’s get to work!
P90X3 Triometrics vs P90X Plyometrics
After being someone who was scared of P90X Plyometrics *shudder*, I was just waiting to see what “Triometrics” would be like. What sounds worse to you? Plyo…or Trio?
Then, after seeing that one of the moves was “Hell’s Chair”…I mean, c’mon, right?
Don’t worry, it’s not all demons and dungeons. In fact, P90X3 Triometrics was actually not as bad as I originally thought. Sure, the 30 minutes vs 60 minutes could have helped, but there were some definite differences.
A few differences of P90X3 Triometrics vs P90X Plyometrics include:
Cardio vs Legs – Jump training in Plyometrics seems to be more cardio-heavy. I didn’t feel like we were doing as much cardio in Triometrics. On the flip side of that, the legs get a brutal workout. From warrior squats, to Hell’s Chair, your legs will strengthen without a doubt.
- Three Levels of Intensity vs Rounds of 4 Moves – In P90X Plyometrics you do 4 moves each round. X3 Triometrics is a bit different. You don’t repeat moves, but instead you increase intensity over a minute (every 20 seconds you increase intensity). This could be going deeper in a move, jumping higher, or crying harder (haha).
- The Time – Duh…hehe just thought I’d throw this in there for those who, like me, are still celebrating the fact that we can get P90X done in just 30 minutes with P90X3. Booyah!

P90X3 Triometrics Intensity and My Thoughts
I don’t want to say that the intensity of Triometrics is necessarily “easier”. This is because some people prefer cardio over resistance training. For me, Triometrics IS less intense, because I hate cardio. I would rather lift weights and grit and grind all day long.
But, if you are a runner, the intensity of resistance on some of the squats and balance moves might not be your thing. Of course, that doesn’t mean don’t do this workout 🙂
In fact, I have found in just 2 weeks of doing Triometrics, I already feel like my legs have strengthened. Better yet, my hip flexibility is improving (this will help with core, abs, and also overall flexibility/balance). For those who like cardio, running, 5ks, and Marathons, this is where Triometrics will treat you well!
As far as NUTRITION is concerned, I felt like I had a pretty good day with Nutrition today (Week 6, Day 2, Triometrics):
The carbs were down quite a bit today (didn’t have my usual banana in the morning), but overall this isn’t too bad. I was struggling with getting Fat into my diet. If you have this same struggle, grab some unsalted peanuts, almonds, or walnuts! They have a great and balanced fat content to help you (fat is important to lose fat…isn’t that crazy?).
