There has been a lot of new developments coming out of Team Beachbody lately and as a Beachbody CoachI can’t tell you how excited I am for the new programs and supplements. One of the best parts of being a Beachbody Coach is I get to do the new workouts as part of my job. Perhaps the biggest news out of Team Beachbody is P90X2. I have been waiting for this program for years and I’m ready to bring it.
Since May 2011 I have completed P90X and Insanity:The Asylum which I completed the end of September. Since then I have been kind of stagnant in my workouts. Not really sticking to anything and working out off and on. I planned to keep going in preparation for P90X2, but like many people, life got in the way and I didn’t do as much as I wanted. That being said I haven’t missed a single day of Shakeology which I can honestly say is the biggest reason I haven’t craved poor foods or even gained a lot of weight.
So here it is, on January 2nd 2012 I will beginning a new journey with P90X2. I’m not sure I’m ready for this program but like most Beachbody workouts I can modify where needed. Hopefully I wont nee to modify to much.
I purchased the Ultimate Package which included 2 8 lb. medicine balls, stability ball, roller bar, push up stands, and some extreme bonus workouts. I have watched a couple of the DVD’s before getting going and from what I have watched it looks like a lot of fun. Of course I know that will change when Tony Horton is kicking my butt.
Unlike P90X, P90X2 is not on a “set” schedule in terms of Phases. Each phase can range from 3-6 weeks with an optional recovery week. And there are only 5 workouts per week opposed to 7 in P90X. This I feel will help me push even harder in the workouts knowing my body will have the time to recover. And with the addition of the roller bar (deep tissue massage) I’m hopeful my muscles won’t be as sore from the daily grind.
Preparing for P90X2
This week I am doing a 3 day Shakeology cleanse. A Shakeology cleanse is a performance cleanse to better prepare my body for P90X2 or any workout regimen. It’s a nutrient efficient with a goal of getting the most nutrients possible in the fewest amount of calories making your body run much more efficiently. I haven’t done this since before starting my last round of P90X, so I felt now was a good time to start one.

Goals for P90X2
Since I have put back on a few pounds I do have a goals of losing some more weight. My biggest goal is to drop my body fat %ed under 15. As for the diet side of thing I will be drinking Shakeology everyday. The only other supplements I plan to take is whey protein and Jack3d. Whey protein to help me build some muscle (duh) and Jack3d to help me push myself harder in the workouts. I have taken Jack3d before and it really didn’t set well with me, but I am still going to give it try for at least the first week.
Getting started with P90X2
Monday January 2nd 2012 is my day one of at least 90. I want to offer an invitation to you, if you are planning to or have already started P90X2 I have a Challenge group on Facebook where a group of us are going through the program and offering each other motivation and support. I’d love to have you join us in there. If you are interested in joining us be sure to contact me here.
