P90X +
12/26/12 11:52 AM
After P90X im trying to decide on what to do next. I saw P90X+ and was wondering how people liked it with mixing that and p90x together? Is it worth it or should i just do another round of P90X then move on to P90X2? Thanks and let me know your experiences and opinions. emoticon

Hi there...

It really depends on what your goals are in order to help suggest your next program. Also did you enjoy P90X and what were your results like? P90X+ is a good supplement to P90X which you can certainly do a hybrid of the two, and P90X2 is a great program for your core. Tell us a bit about your goals and what you like in a program (resistance training, cardio, etc).

Well to be honest im just starting month 3 of my P90X program. So far i love the weight loss results and some of the toning ive gotten. Im hoping to have all the fat cut off by the end of this month. Ive lost 13 pounds and 9% bodyfat so far. I love the program though for sure. I love a challenge and i love the intensity of the program and the fact that it has some weights still involved. I used to lift weights before P90X and have a weight room usptairs in my house full of all the goodies. So i definitely love the resistance training the most out of all the workouts.

My goals after P90X would be to continue staying in shape and looking my best. Id like to add some muscle to my body for sure though. Id like to get bigger, but i love P90X and im not sure where to go afterwards. Hope this helps.

That is helpful and great job so far! It sounds like you should stick with the P90X program and if you want to mix it up some add in the P90X+ routines. They will add some variety to your program which will help keep you motivated. I would still stick with the Classic routine and you should continue to see the results you want.

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Ok cool thanks for your help. Im still being challenged by pullups and a few other things so i figured i might do one more round until i start to dominate all the workouts. Ill get the P90X + if i get bored and or am ready to change it up a bit.

How is P90X 2? I heard its more core/strength athleticism based then muscle building based?

Sounds like a plan. X2 is a great program focused very much on your core. You do dumbbell curls on one leg as an example which helps you concentrate on keeping your core tight. Many of the workouts have some sort of balance component for the same reason. You do need more equipment (foam roller, stability ball, medicine balls) to take full advantage of the program but it is a great next step as well. You have it right as IMO the resistance training is not as good for building muscle as compared to P90X but again the focus is on your core along with mobility and functional fitness. There are some workouts in X2 that I like much more than in P90X such as Core Syn, Yoga and ABX.

You sound like my exact double! lol
I started 3 1/2 years ago with two rounds
of P90X and and then went on to do 8 rounds of
P90X+. When P90X2 came out last December I started
woth that and did 2 full rounds and have since
been doing a hybrid of the X2 program.
My goals are exactly like yours in that I'm really not
interested in an "Arnold" like physique but want to be
in shape and well defined.
If my opinion is worth anything then you should really stick
with the P90X series but go with the X2 because it really
has a much more developed program then the past two. Just
the introduction of the foam roller / myofacial release
is enough of it's own to justify the program.
If you've already ordered the X+ though no big deal. I
loved that program and it was initially tough to get me to
drop it, but I've since been sold on the fact that X2 is the
best of the P90 series, which concentrates on "life fitness"
Good luck!

Hey thanks for the info. I did order X+ but beachbody does have a 30 money back gaurantee. Im starting to wonder now if i should have ordered it. Been reading tons of reviews for the last hour and there is alot of negative reviews on it. Should i send it back and just go for X2 after another round of P90X? Or should i give the plus a chance?

You will find a lot of debate on these boards on that topic.
Heck, if you look at some of my own posts from last
January when i first started X2, I was VERY hesitant to
give up X+! lol
Since then though I've really come to appreciate the
develpment and science behind X2, it really is, in my
opinion, a far superior program for life fitness.
I would tell anyone just starting out today, if they were
undecided about X, X+, or X2 to go with X2.
Just my opinion but doesn't it make sense that a newer
version would be better?
Wait a second, don't realte that question to Microsoft Windows Vista! lol

I would go right to X2.
I found Phase 1 (foundation) of X2, not so diffcult
but i still stuck with it for the 4 weeks.
Phase 2 (strength)is more like what you will
be used to and I stuck with that for 6 weeks.
Phase 3 (PAP) you will find tough.
Hard to describe but it will gas you.
I did that for 4 weeks like they tell you to.
Between each Phase I did the recovery week schedule.

I did another complete round and now i just do this:
- 1 week Foundation
- 4 weeks Phase 2
- Recovery week
- 5 weeks Phase 2
(i will randomly sub in Total Body, Base & Back from Phase 1)
- Recovery Week
- 4 weeks PAP
- Recovery Week
Repeat
