P90X or P90X2 ?
P90X or P90X2 ?
12/8/12 10:00 AM
Hello guys. I'm a beginner with the whole beachbody community. I need help deciding what program to follow. From reviewing the dvds of both workouts and reading reviews and so this is what i get and It's that p90x2 with help me become more athletic ( give me more agility and balance ) while the original is focused more on sculpting the body and giving you strength. I'm 16 years old, 185cm tall, i weigh 73kg and the last thing i have around 14-15% bf. My goal is to build some muscle mass while getting sculpted, building strength and getting a strong core so i can start doing hard barbrothers like workouts so which program do you think best suits my goals??

You've pretty much nailed the difference between X and X2. Do X first. You need to build a foundation of strength before you can take that strength and apply it to X2. I googled the barbrothers & see that they're into bodyweight training. You might want to check out the work of Al Kovadlo and also Paul Wade for some great bodyweight programs.

Do you have both dvds? I would start with P90X and then P90X2. I have done both workouts. I would concentrate on low reps with high weights. if you do not have the programs, body beast may be a better program.

Cheers!

I got body beast too. You can say that I got most of beachbody's programs but the program is that it requires alot of different weight to be used directly after each other so i either need an adjustable dumbells ( which i cant find anywhere in egypt ) or buy like 5 different weighted dumbells and thats gonna be hard :3 . Can i get around it in anyway?
