Fitness guru Tony Horton has been transforming bodies with his P90X, X2, and 10 minute trainer. Today, he's giving us an exclusive 10-minute workout combining all three. Hey, boys and girls. Tony Horton here. I'm the P90X guy. I'm hanging out here with Anna and Danny and we're gonna do a little 10-minute workout, kind of a combination of P90X, X2, 10-minute trainer, a whole potpourri, we have a ton of exercises. We've already warmed up and stretched and got on our foam rollers and I know you have, too. But we're gonna get started. Are you ready to rock? Girls. Yeah. Yes. Push up side arm balance. Watch me, follow along. One minute, right here. So, nice wide feet, there's your push up, roll to the inside and outside of the foot. Raise the hip. Arm up. There you go. We're gonna repeat that on the other side. Push up. Here we go. Raise the hip. Reach up. Good. If you're flexing your core and you're raising your hip, this is easy. You can hang out all day long. No big deal. Nice. And down and up. You really have to stabilize That shoulder as you rotate open. Yeah, isn't that nice? Well, you know, we do regular pushups and those are great. But I like to add a little yoga move in there too, one that adds the stabilizers, right this is synergistic exercise. You're doing a lot of things at once. Not just one thing but multiple things. Now here's our speed and pace. If you wanna go a little faster or a little slower, maybe hold these longer that's okay with me, right? One size does not fit all. Holding it longer really works the core. We're gonna do just one more. Are you ready? Here we go. Check out our backside. Good. and come up. Alright, now, free sprint. Are you ready girls? Run. Run like Forest Gump, people call me. Now I'm going to call out freeze, and when I do that you're gonna lift one leg off the ground and hold it. Freeze. Very strong Go. Knees up. Other leg. Freeze. Oh, there's a cheat. And run. You have to work on your balance. Right. Freeze. How we doing back there? Go. Get the arms going. Cheek cheek with the hands. You know what I mean? Butt cheeks right here. Yeah. And working the shoulders? Nice. Running. so we just did an upper body exercise. Freeze. Now we go to the cardio, right, and the balance. Cardio with balance together. Who said they can't have fun together? Freeze. Go. Freeze. Stumbling. Go. Good, all right. time for core. Everybody down. Feet that way. Here we go. So find your balance point. Hands go out, feet go out. Here. and in. Here and in. Only a minute of this. Now a couple things. Don't forget to breathe. If you wanna modify...Girls, keep going. I'm gonna show you a little break. You can do this. They're not gonna stop, though. Tony, it's too much, dude. Okay, fine. or otherwise hang in there. Try not to grab your knees. Keep your chest and eyes up. Grabbing is fun, right? It's a way to cheat but It's OK. No cheating. Breathing, you're gonna feel this pretty much everywhere hip flexors, core, maybe even your back a little bit but that's not a bad thing. It was good. Lots of core. Open and close. Yes. Keep the feet high. Here's another modification. Right? One foot on the ground. That's all I can do. Couple more. Open, last one. Nice. All right.

Oh, yeah. Lower leg is working. Lower leg, right? Keep your eyes on one spot. As the knee comes up, this right arm goes back. Nice. And you might stumble and fall. You might hop like this. Yeah. All right, I love this rubber surface. All right. Other leg, here we go. So and up. And down. I usually feel one side more stable than the other, so it's good to focus on one side and then the other. Absolutely. This is my bad side. Which side is your bad side? This is my bad side. We're doing both. I think we're both doing pretty well though. Hang in there, boys and girls, you're not going to get this right away. Go as low as you can. Try not to tap the other foot on the ground. If you do, it ain't no big thing, all right?
