It takes the principles of the P90X® concept and cranks up the intensity with exercises that demand every ounce of your balance, agility, core strength, and athleticism.

Q. Who's it For?

Q. What types of exercises are in the program?
A. Phase One focuses on your foundation. It includes X2 Core, which works the core using instability; X2 Balance & Power, which incorporates strength and explosive movements; and more. 3-5 weeks.

Phase Two focuses on strength with workouts like Plyocide, combining explosive movements with mind and coordination drills; Chest, Back & Balance, the mega pump of P90X Chest & Back with the addition of unstable platforms. 3-6 weeks.

Phase Three focuses on performance. It includes P.A.P. Lower and P.A.P. Upper, two separate workouts using a cutting-edge training technique used by some of the fittest athletes on the planet. These are a series of repeated movements or "complexes" that will absolutely destroy you. 3-4 weeks.

Some Highlights:

Yoga is now only 65 minutes compared to 90 minutes in the original P90X! No more 90 minute Thursdays!! Also, cardio has been 'removed'. There are no specific cardio workouts (such as Kenpo), everything is interval training (high intense exercises with lower intensity exercises). You WILL be burning a ton of calories. But if you are not a cardio fanatic (running at a steady pace for 60 minutes), then definitely consider adding P90X2 to your workout video library. And, if you are, this will give you a workout like you've never had before.



Q. How many days will I have to workout each week?
P90X2 is now 5 days compared to it's predecessor which is 6 days. It's very strenuous and requires more rest time.

Q. What equipment do I need?
A. All you need to do P90X2 is a couple of dumbbells or resistance bands, a place to do pull-ups, and about an hour a day. A pro grade stability ball, two 8-lb. medicine balls, and a foam roller are strongly recommended, too.

Q. What is P.A.P Training?
Post-Activation Potentiation. Doing a weighted resistance exercise prior to an explosive one can increase the amount of power produced by conditioned individuals.

Q. Should I complete another program before P90X2?
It's suggested that if you have never worked out or are over weight to start with a less strenuous workout program (see next question). You should be a graduate from P90, P90X or similar program. P90X2 is designed for those that are close to their goal.

Q. What if I want a less strenuous program?
A. If you decide you aren't ready to tackle P90X2 yet but still want to get in great shape fast, we recommend starting with a less extreme program, such as 10-Minute Trainer®, Turbo Jam, or Power 90®. Beachbody® offers a wide variety of incredible fitness programs for all levels and goals, so you're sure to find the one that's right for you.
