P90X Equipment – What You Need To Get Started

P90X Equipment – What You Need To Get Started

In order to maximize your results with P90X, I consider the following “MUST HAVES”: If I had to go back in time and repeat my first round of P90X, knowing what I know now, there is a short list of items I feel I couldn’t do without.  Every one of these items, in my opinion, were critical to maximizing my results with the P90X program.  I used each of them several times per week, if not every day.  I hope this list helps you weed through all of the available equipment and supplements to determine which best meet your needs and your budget!  (Please don’t feel like I’m giving you a sales pitch.  These are all items I feel really work FOR ME and are worth the money, but my budget may be different than yours) 1)  Pullup Bar with multiple hand positions = The workouts involve a variety of pullups, and having a good, seven position pullup bar will help you maximize this portion of your workout.  Plus, you’ll be using it a lot so you’ll want a sturdy one that will last.  I bought mine from Beachbody due to its stronger materials and durability, although it was a little more expensive than the knockoff brands (I paid $59).  I’m glad I did, because it held up to my abuse just fine. (I’ve since installed a permanent pull-up bar I got on Amazon.com in my basement) 2) Dumbbells = I know the exercises can be done with bands, but free weights will definitely maximize your results.  I lot of people I know use adjustable dumbbells (LifeSmart, Bowflex, etc.), which are much cheaper than buying a whole set of individual hex dumbbells like I have.  They typically adjust from 5-55 lbs, and are very durable.  Get them as Sports Authority,  Academy Sports or online. I got my rubber hex dumbbells from Sports Authority when they were on sale AND when they were having a 25% off one item coupon (…a lot of individual transactions…I was lucky to find a very patient cashier LOL). 3)  PowerStands = These are more expensive ($39) than the cheap pushup bars you can get at a retail store, but they are solid, very stable, and very durable.  They won’t tip over shake when you are pushing hard for those last reps.  They also put your wrists in the correct positon to prevent joint problems.  I love my PowerStands.  They take my pushups to the next level, and they will last forever! 4)  Yoga Mat = Get one of these for Ab Ripper X and YogaX .  If you try to do a bunch of situps with your tailbone directly on the floor, you’ll regret it!  I have...

P90X vs P90X2

P90X vs P90X2

In case you have been living under a rock these last couple months, you might not have heard that there is a brand new sequel to P90X coming out that’s called P90X2. P90X2 is a fitness program designed for those who are already in decent shape, that are looking to take their health and fitness to a whole new level. There are many similarities between P90X and P90X2, but there are also some key differences. Since I feel like a P90X expert now (after 4 rounds), I can offer a unique perspective.  I am a P90X disciple so it would be extremely hard for me to give up that schedule and workouts for anything else.  I can say though that P90X2 is going to be a next step in sports science and I am very happy to jump onboard.  P90X got me a crazy transformation and completely changed my physical appearance. P90X2 will take that base and increase my athletic performance, agility, speed, strength and power. But you don’t have to hear it from me.  Hear it from the man himself, Tony Horton, the creator of P90X and P90X2.  Check out his take on P90X vs P90X2: What Are the Differences between P90X vs P90X? As you can see the main difference is Post-Activation Potentiation or PAP for short.  This is the forefront of sports science and P90X2 is bringing it (no pun intended) straight to your home.  Not only can you Get Fit At Home, but you will be able to perform like an athlete as well.  (And for guys and gals like me in their 40s, that’s no small achievement!) As Tony Horton says it perfectly “Indoor training for the Outside World”. As we age, our bodies become more prone to injury. P90X and P90X2 reverse that trend. I’m in the best shape of my life thanks to P90X. Another major difference is the flexibility in the schedule.  In P90X you use muscle confusion with a set amount of weeks in order to get results.  With P90X2 you will be doing a flexible range during each phase so you can focus on your personal goals.  If you want more emphasis on core, then you’ll do more of the “Foundation” phase… If you want more Strength/Size then do more of the “Strength” phase. The same goes for the “Performance” phase. P90X2 as a “heavier” workout than P90X.  Meaning you will be working out harder for the same or shorter amounts of time.  You will need more time for recovery, so the workout schedule consist of 5 days per week, with a “Active” day 6. The 6th day is so you can go out there and play sports,...

P90X Extreme Home Fitness

Get ABSOLUTELY RIPPED in 90 Days What is it? P90X® is a comprehensive in-home and nutrition program proven to burn fat and reshape your body with lean muscle in just 90 days. In fact, if P90X doesn’t get you absolutely ripped in 90 days, you’ll get your money back. 12 different workouts target every area of your body, incorporating moves used by elite athletes, gymnasts, weightlifters, and martial artists. In addition to cardio, strength training, and stretching, you’ll develop extreme overall fitness with bodyweight exercises such as pull-ups and push-ups, as well as plyometrics (jump training), yoga, and Kenpo. Your personal trainer, Tony Horton, demonstrates each move, showing a modified version for those still building strength and flexibility. Most important, he’ll keep you engaged, motivated, and even amused every step of the way. Over 2 million people, including numerous professional athletes and celebrities, have bought P90X and used it to get in the best shape of their lives. P90X is the #1 selling home fitness program in the world, with over 8,000 videos posted by satisfied customers on YouTube and over 100,000 Facebook fans. Why is it effective? Many people get frustrated when they’re working out day after day but not seeing faster progress—that’s what’s known as the plateau effect. Trainer Tony Horton invented the science of Muscle Confusion for P90X, specifically to shatter these plateaus. In P90X Tony continually switches up your routine, constantly adding new exercises during the program’s 3 phases. This variety challenges your muscles and keeps them from getting accustomed to the workouts over time. Instead of leveling off, your body keeps improving—without you getting stuck or bored. And because you’re working different muscles in different ways with each workout, P90X makes it possible for you to “Bring It” hard every day, without the pain or injury that often comes from repetitive motion. What makes P90X® Unique? Most in-home workout programs offer only one kind of fitness training. But the 12 DVDs in P90X give you intense cross-training with 5 hard-core resistance routines, 3 fat-scorching cardio routines, and 2 ab-ripping routines, as well as extreme yoga and advanced flexibility. You work all your muscles, from every possible angle, using many different techniques. Whether you want to lean out, bulk up, or get ripped, there are endless ways to mix and match the routines to keep you motivated for the full 90 days and beyond. The other thing that makes P90X unique is Tony Horton himself. Not only is he an experienced trainer who’s devised the most efficient ways to get your body into peak shape, he’s incredibly engaging and inspiring, constantly encouraging you to “do...
