We’ve talked recently on the SeenOnTV Express blog about ways to look slimmer with no effort (Kymaro Body Shaper for women and Slim T for men) and ways to improve muscle tone with little effort (Flex Belt and Flex Mini). Though there are many As Seen On TV exercise videos and equipment that are low-impact and moderate intensity, perhaps the hottest selling infomercial exercise videos are the extreme workout routines from Beachbody.
Among the best selling Beachbody videos are Insanity with Shaun T. and Tony Horton’s P90X. Recently, Shaun T. released a new version of his popular Insanity workout entitled The Asylum, a thirty-day sports training workout. Now, Tony Horton and Beachbody are expanding their offerings for die-hard P90X fans with the release of P90X2.
P90X2 is more than just a new set of workouts to replace P90X; it is designed to build on the successful transformation of those who have completed P90X by increasing agility and athleticism. P90X was created to transform bodies into the best shape of their lives, replacing fat with muscle through a technique of Muscle Confusion. P90X2 continues with Muscle Confusion but also incorporates Post-Activation Potentiation (P.A.P.), a groundbreaking exercise technique based on two additional years of research and development by the fitness experts and sports scientists at Beachbody.
P.A.P. essentially combines heavy strength training with plyometric exercise to engage more muscles during and after a workout. This explosive combination increases stamina, agility, core strength, and overall athleticism. P90X2 is not designed as a replacement for the original P90X; it is not simply more of the same. Rather, P90X2 takes fitness to the next level.
In this video, Tony Horton explains the difference between the original P90X and the all new P90X2:
Because the P90X2 workouts are completely new and different from the previous series, new equipment may be necessary. When you order the P90X2 workout kit, you have your choice of three packages, depending on what equipment needs you may have:
- P90X2 Base Kit: 12 workout DVDs, 1 How to Bring It Again DVD, P90X2 Workout Guide, P90X2 Nutrition Guide, P90X Workout Calendar
- P90X2 Deluxe Kit: everything included in the Base Kit plus a foam roller, two 8-pound medicine balls, a premium stability ball, and two additional extreme workouts: V-Sculpt and Chest + Shoulders + Tris
- P90X2 Ultimate Kit: everything included in the Deluxe Kit plus Tony Horton’s PowerStands
The twelve P90X2 workouts use strength training, plyometrics, yoga, and core strength exercises and routines based on Muscle Confusion, but they incorporate P.A.P. to take your workout beyond the original transformation of P90X and into increased athletic ability, stamina, strength, and agility. P90X2 workouts include:
- X2 Core
- X2 Recovery + Mobility
- X2 Total Body
- X2 Yoga
- X2 Balance + Power
- Chest + Back + Balance
- X2 Shoulders + Arms
- Base + Back
- P.A.P. Upper
- P.A.P Lower
- X2 Ab Ripper
Staff members at SeenOnTV Express who have used the original P90X saw phenomenal results with the original program and look to build on their efforts with the all new P90X2.
Look out now. SeenOnTV Express is going to be too hot to handle and too fast to catch . . .
