P90X3 Yoga Mat and Block Recommendations

P90X3 Yoga Mat Equipment NeededYou may or may not want to use a yoga mat, but I’d recommend it. I think it helps set the tone and gives you points of reference for standing wide-legged and such. Of course, if you’re doing yoga on a hard floor, it’s a must.

For me, the yoga block is a must. I just need it for many moves and when I don’t use it, I regret it. I think I can get by without it, but every time I don’t achieve the same performance in the given moves.

P90X3 Yoga Mat…

The Thick

It comes in several colors and is a good price for a good mat.

If you are on carpet or outside, you might prefer a thinner mat like the 1/4 inch thick mat by YogaAccessories.

It also has 4 stars on Amazon and comes in a variety of colors.

At the time of this post, they are both about the same price and both are eligible for free shipping on orders over $35.

The Block

For yoga blocks, you’d think you could just use about anything (like a cat as recommended by Tony Horton). However, in many cases it just doesn’t work. It’s hard to find the right size, weight and strength in something other than a real yoga block.

There are several options that all have good ratings…
