Perhaps one of the biggest questions of this year is going to be What is the difference between P90X and P90X2. So let’s break down the differences in these two top notch programs.
In my opinion I don’t think P90X2 will be better than P90X, but rather an extension of it. Having said that there was a lot more put into P90X2 in terms of development. The develop team consisted of not only Tony Horton, but a Team of world class fitness experts and Beachbody own fitness expert Steve Edwards. They are taking the “Muscle confusion” concept to a whole new level.
What’s the difference between P90X and P90X2
P90X was created to get you in the best physical shape of your life while P90X2 was created to increase athletic performance with body transformation being a enevitable byproduct.
P90X changed your physique using muscle confusion. Which used a combination of resistance training, plyometrics cardio training and yoga to keep your muscles guessing throughout the program. P90X2 will incorporate the same training protocols but also layers in a break through scientific technique called Post-Activation-Potentiation or P.A.P. Which will stimulate, mobility, power, speed, and agility to increase your athletism.
P90X has 3 30 day phases designed to avoid a plateau by constantly alternating between Adaptation and mastery moves. P90X2 has more flexible phases ranging from 3 to 6 weeks but with individual goals for each phase. It also establishes a strong foundation and increases in strength, explosiveness and power.
P90X kept you moving 6 days per week. While P90X2 heavy work load means more recovery is reguired keeping the workout week at only 5 days.
P90X incorporates 12 challenging workouts and P90X2 has 12 ALL NEW workouts plus 2 additional extreme workouts. And finally P90X2 – X2-Yoga is 60 minutes with all new moves focused on sports specific training.
P90X includes a solid 90 day nutrition plan, P90X2 also contains a nutrition plan but more focused on 90 days of performance based fuel integrating the latest research in nutrition science including all new recipes and addition vegan and grain free options.
Those are the basic differences, if you have completed a round of P90X get ready for an all new challenge because it called P90X2. Bring It!
