How Does the P90X2 “Muscle Confusion” Work?

You may have first heard the term “muscle confusion” when Tony Horton first developed the P90X program. It was a phrase designed to explain how a workout plateau could be avoided by not doing the same workout over and over again – thus keeping your muscles “confused” and unable to stop growing. It sounds a little goofy, but the principle is correct. Plateaus happen – you’ve no doubt experienced them yourself – because we condition our body to a single workout. How workout plateaus happen Let’s say you always bicycle the same 10 mile route. After Day One of your route, your quads and calves are killing you and your lower back aches. But by the time you’ve completed the course of your bicycling workout for six weeks or so, you’ve become faster and you no longer experience any muscle pain. That’s because your quads, calves, lower back, and the other muscles responsible for doing this particular workout have adapted to your 10 mile route workload, and they no...

Is P90X2 the Ultimate 3-peat?

If you blew through Beachbody’s P90 and P90X and started looking around for something even more powerful, you are in for a muscle-building, fat-stripping, intense workout feast. P90X2 may just be the ultimate three-peat! I know you have a zillion questions (you should, anyway; this extreme workout system is no joke!) but I’ll start with what comes in the kit and go from there. MORE workout in LESS time Actually, before I list what’s in the kit, the single biggest thing to know right off the bat is that this program has undergone a massive revision, and the workout is now designed to give you absolute maximum results with less workout time. It’s still a 90-day program, although you should work at a pace you can maintain, but rather than a 6 days per week setup, they’ve reduced your training time by 20% to only 5 power-packed workout days. Why? The process of muscle growth is not 100% agreed-upon, but most theories are based on the idea that lifting...

Used P90X For Sale – Where To Find P90X Used Copies

P90X by Tony Horton is very popular right now, and therefore many people are looking for copies of used P90X for sale. Similar to my post on finding used copies of the Insanity workout, my top recommendation is the old favorite: Amazon. If  you’re in the market for used P90X, head on over to Amazon at the link below: >>Buy Used P90X For Sale Over At The Amazon Marketplace<< The alternatives are few, really. You can try on eBay but I find it unreliable for this kind of product. I don’t buy exercise equipment from there and DVDs are a bit hit and miss in terms of quality. With Amazon, you get a trusted retailer and an excellent marketplace. Each individual seller gives information on their history and what they’re selling. Remember that P90X should come with several bonuses. You’ll always get these if you buy new through Beachbody, but you’ll have to check each seller on Amazon to see what comes with it. This is what comes as...
