Frequently Asked Questions
How is P90X2 different from P90X?
Consider P90X2™ the next wave in applied science for body transformation. Like P90X®, it's a complete 90-day program but with all-new, cutting-edge workouts grounded in the most modern thinking in sports science. It takes the principles and foundation of the P90X concept and cranks up the intensity with exercises that demand every ounce of your balance, agility, core strength, and athleticism. And of course, P90X2 will reward you with eye-popping results.
When will P90X2 be available?
December 2011. (Note: a Spanish language version will be available in January 2012.)
What types of exercises are in the program?
All 12 workouts fall into one or more of three training phases, each with a very distinct focus.
Phase One is focused on your foundation with the goal of creating a solid attachment to the ground. Includes X2 Core, which works the core using instability; X2 Balance + Power, which incorporates strength and explosive movements; and more.
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.
Phase Three focuses on performance. You can look forward to 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—a series of repeated movements or "complexes" that will absolutely destroy you.
What equipment do I need?
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. Additional equipment that is used optionally in P90X2 but strongly recommended is a foam roller or RumbleRoller™, a PREMIUM stability ball, and two medicine balls. All of the additional equipment is available for pre-order as part of the Deluxe and Ultimate kits. The equipment will also be available to be purchased separately in December after the pre-order period has ended.
What if I want a less strenuous program?
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® or Power 90®. Extreme Fitness Results 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.
