Ok, first thing about Agility X is that you need to get some tape and rip off 2 pieces, each 4 feet long. You then place these strips on the floor parallel to each other (like railroad tracks) anywhere from 3 to 5 feet apart. (I set mine an about 4 (size 8) shoe lengths apart. Place a little “X” on the top, center and bottom of each “rail” of your tracks. Make sure there is plenty of space on either side of the train tracks as you will be using about an 8 X 8 foot area for this work out.
Next we meet the kids: Victor, Chris and Lauren. All new kids!!! Hooray. If this was a slasher movie, Victor would be first to go, he is the token black guy and would probably get killed off within the first 30 minutes of the movie. Chris (guy) is a P90X Certified trainer. (Whoop de shit) and last but not least is Lauren. She is more like a normal workout girl, and is more realistic of a test subject than the hardened gristle that is Dreya Weber. Plus she proves during the routine that white people really cannot dance.
Warm-Up: Basically the same as Total Synergistics
After the warm-up there is no wasting any time, the routine gets started right away.
Explode and Hold – (A favorite of muslim radicals) 1 minute of jumping back and forth landing on one foot super skater style.
Y Lunges – Stand in the middle back of your train tracks, lunge with the left leg to the upper left X and back, then with the right leg to the upper right X.
Joel Jumps – Find a hobo named Joel and jump over the top of him. I used my dog instead as the only hobo I could find was named Roger.
Toe Tap Skater – Like a Super Skater but back, side and then forward. Back and Side are fine, but the forward one is not a natural movement and I really struggled with it. You basically do a super skater but reach the leg forward and touch with the heel instead of the toe.
Near and Fars – These are like high stepping routine that Insanity uses, just over the tape lines with high knees.
Ring Around the Rosey – Yeah, just run around for a minute.
Scissor Jump Kicks – Another Insanity move (Switch Kicks) this will wear you out.
8 Sprint 3 – Again, different ways to run around your tape.
Tap that Line – What came instantly to my mind? That’s right Tony, Tap dat Ass. Fortunately, this move gets the heart rate going just like Tappin dat Ass. Only it is harder on the legs.
Jump Knee Jumps – Similar to Insanity Jump Knee Tucks. Another killer minute to push through.
Triangle Lunges – Some lunges to help you recover from the last 4 minutes of hell.
Squat Jump Lunge – Various levels of intensity here, pick your poison. A squat combined with a jump lunge to the side.
3.4 Run – Think Drills all over again, with Tony barking out stupid orders that are about impossible to follow.
Long Jump Sprints – Do a long jump, then sprint backward to where you started.
Plyo Line Pushups – Walking pushups down the line one way, then plyo pushups on the way back. A killer way to end the workout.
Overall this is a very nice workout, lots of different things to do. Most of the focus is on legs but there is some shoulder, chest and arm stuff in there. The pace is very good, no need to hit fast forward to get past Tony blabbering on and on about some insignificant item or person who works at Beachbody.
I will only mention the Beyoncification of the moves by Lauren during this update. I will have to go into more detail next week about her dance moves.
