This is my personal review. Everyone's experience and results will differ on an individual basis.
Updated: August 9th 2018
Tony Horton and the Beachbody crew introduced their most recent home workout program, which is a sequel to their successful P9OX series and is called P90X2. I just completed this savage program and discovered it very hard to finish. There was certainly an absence of motivation with the P90X2. Other P90X2 reviews might tell you another thing but here goes my P90X2 review.
I began with P90X back in the day, which is the first home workout series I finished, and I had tons of fun completing it. Strangely, I never reviewed it for reasons unknown in spite of it being such an amazing project. P90X2 raises the bar. Tony Horton specifies all through the program this is implied for the P90X graduates; however, in actuality, you can do the program fine without having done P90X and other comparable programs.
It is not everyone that has time to hit the gym or money to buy all the gym equipment and so we all yearn for that intense and result-bearing home workout to cater for all the lost time and gained weight. That is what P90X2 promises to give you but does P90X2 deliver on its word? Read this P90X2 review and find out
This P90X2 review is based on our personal experience with the product, research, and interviews with individuals that have used P90X2 who were also open enough to give their honest P90X2 review based on how the workout took its course and what results it yielded for them if any.
Similar to P90X, this program includes 90 days that comprises of three stages. Stage 1 is called the Foundation, stage 2 is called the Strength, and stage 3 is called the Performance. With the first P90X, there were particular programs to take after. In case that you needed to get lean, you had to follow its lean calendar. Likewise, there was the classic calendar as well as doubles, and both would provide a particular schedule. With P90X2, there are provided more breathing space to settle on to what extent you need to remain in each stage. For stage 1, you can remain in the stage somewhere in the range of three to a month and a half, stage 2 is somewhere in the range of three
to a month and a half, and stage three is somewhere in the range of 3 weeks to a month. While a few people may acknowledge this flexibility, numerous will not. Numerous individuals who follow these programs want to be instructed precisely and they need to have the capacity to follow the routine precisely and press play. In any case, with P90X2, leeway is ambiguous to influence individuals to think about to what extent they ought to do each stage, as long it is up to 3 months. I wound up following 3 weeks in stage 1, 5 weeks in stage 2, and a month in stage 3. This was largely subjective, with the exception of I needed to invest the minimal measure of time in stage 1, since I believe I am fit and did not require the additional time to develop to stage two and three.
P90X2 is a home workout plan that intends to give you more than full gym workout at home. It focuses on making you train like a professional athlete with 12 routines all in the comfort of your home without taking too much of your time It is an improved version of its predecessor the P90X.

From our experience for this P90X2 review, we came to an agreement that the P90X2 is rightfully in the category of extreme workouts and
built for the advanced exerciser. Therefore, if you are looking for extreme home workouts, this product might be the right one for you.

the whole program and improves your movement patterns. Duration: 57 minutes+.

The P90X2 is divided into three stages and lasts for a total of 90 days. For stage 1, you can decide how much time you will spend
The workouts in stage1 incorporate Plyocide, X2 Total Body, X2 Balance + Power, Ab Ripper, X2 Core, X2 Recovery + Mobility, and X2 Yoga.
The workouts in stage 2 comprise of Plyocide, X2 Shoulders + Arms, Base + Back, Ab Ripper, Chest + Back + Balance, X2 Recovery + Mobility, and X2 Yoga. Moreover, you can substitute X2 Chest + Shoulders + Tries for X2 Shoulders + Arms, and V-Sculpt for Chest + Back + Balance. I did the substitution throughout the previous two weeks of stage 2 of boredom and curiosity.
Workouts in stage 3 incorporate P.A.P. Lower, (which is a term being tossed around fitness circles), X2 Recovery + Mobility, P.A.P. Upper, and X2 Yoga. There is additionally a casual recovery week incorporated towards the end of stage 3 should you require it, which is generally X2 Recovery + Mobility including X2 Yoga rotated each day.
This review wants you to know it may sound confusing but is not once you observe the calendar and your choices and begin the program. The one thing, which I believe, is a major no for the program is the number of equipment required, which is more than the first P9OX. You will require a mat, tape, dumbbell of different weights, resistance bands, a ploy box, push up stands, towels, medicine balls, a pull-up bar, stability balls, a foam roller, including a number of other stuff. Conveniently, Beachbody offers stuff you require. I did not have all the required equipment, yet I had most Tony Horton emphasizes that you can follow this program in the hotel room in case you are traveling, and consequently need not bother with all the equipment. At the end of the day, an absence of equipment ought not to prevent you from beginning the program. In any case, it is always good to do the workouts as they are intended for greatest advantage. However, this tells you the number of equipment you require for P90X2 makes it hard.
I will not tell you what every exercise comprises of separately like other P90X2 reviews do. It is for you to know. Simply realize that there is a considerable measure of well-known stuff from the first P90X, for example, warm up and cool down, loads of pull-ups, dumbbell work, and so on. In any case, there will likewise be loads of new things including lots of
stability ball workouts, medicine ball workouts, and foam rolling. You will like the foam rolling, which is a nice touch. I often disregarded foam rolling despite being so essential for recovery until now. The medicine including stability ball was intriguing, but not required, as I would see it. We want you to know that the workouts are difficult.
In general, it is a decent program. Tony Horton is his hilarious and whacky, and a large portion of the exercises is great and leaves you feeling that you put in good work. My outcomes were quite great. I leaned out and packed a bit of muscle. I also got stronger. This review wants you to know it is a good program if you have most of the types of equipment or are willing to buy them. Other P90X2 reviews may tell you that this program is not that good but I assure you it gets better once you start following the program. Hope this helped.
Our research data and personal experience yielded the
following key aspects.
We have now reached the twilight of our review but now the blossom of your knowledge of the P90X2 program.
The program is not a bogus scheme to sell you something that does not exist it actually is in existence. So your money is safe and so is your body as these workouts are well designed, however, you should always see your physician before starting any new workout program.
The P90X2 program will not require you to hit the gym but it will require you to buy a few accessories such as a ball, equipment for your pull-ups end some dumbbells. Other than that, the program is fully a home workout and does deliver the results it promises.
If you stick to the plan, eat as advised and do not give up on your workouts, the P90X2 will yield results.
