P90X markets itself as an extreme workout program. But after 90 days of P90X you may be looking for more. Fortunately for you, there's a sequel to the original: P90X Plus. Understand how each of these programs works before selecting one for yourself.
The original P90X program includes three cardio routines: Plyometrics, Kenpo X and Cardio X. Plyometrics is a form of jump training while Kenpo X is based on martial arts and Cardio X combines elements of both. It also features six strength training routines that focus on specific areas of the body. These routines are Back and Biceps, Chest Shoulders and Triceps, Core Synergistics, Legs and Back, Shoulders and Arms, and Chest and Back. Additionally, P90X includes a yoga routine called Yoga X and an ab routine called Ab Ripper X.
P90X Plus Workouts
P90X Plus features five new workouts. Upper Plus and Total Body Plus are both strength training routines. Upper Plus focuses on the chest back and arms while Total Body Plus is a full body workout. Interval X Plus is a cardio routine that relies on high intensity intervals and Kenpo Cardio Plus, like Kenpo X, is a cardio routine inspired by martial arts. The Abs/Core Plus routine is a core workout similar to Ab Ripper X.
Both P90X and P90X Plus are 13-week programs. During each program you'll workout six days a week, alternating between strength training and cardio routines. All of the scheduled workouts in P90X are original workouts for the program, but P90X Plus actually incorporates some of the routines from the original P90X program. P90X Plus isn't a stand-alone program, so much as an add-on for P90X. This means that you'll need to have access to P90X to complete P90X Plus.
P90X isn't for everyone. According to the P90X Fitness Guide you should be in reasonably good shape before starting the program. You should be able to perform the P90X fitness test -- a series of exercises including push-ups, pull-ups and curls -- before starting the program. P90X Plus is even more exclusive; it's designed for P90X grads -- those people who have already completed a round of P90X. Consult your doctor before starting either program to see if it's right for you.
