Your midsection is the central area of your body. It affects the movements of your entire body if not exercised properly.
Your core stabilizes the rest of your body and helps your center of gravity. Just think about the times that your back or your hips hurt. Those pains had a significant effect on the rest of your body.
P90X understands the importance of strengthening your core. By doing this you strengthen the rest of your body as well.
A lot of people don’t understand the importance of working these muscles. But they are fundamental. That’s why this program is dedicated to the core.
Synergistics comes from the word “synergy”. Synergy means the cooperation of two or more things to create something strong and better than the sum of its parts.
That is exactly what this workout does. By targeting your midsection, your strengthening the rest of the body.
The simple answer is no you do not. The DVD does come with the P90X program but you can complete P90X Synergistics program by itself if you order it from Beachbody On Demand.
