X2 Balance + Power

X2 Balance + Power

X2 Balance + Power TIME! Today is day 6 of my journey with the P90X2 workout. Week 1 is for the most part DONE and in the books. I say “for the most part” because tomorrow is rest or X2 Recovery + Mobility, but I’ll definitely be doing the X2 Recovery + Mobility workout (it’s an awesome stretching routine).

So far the X2 Balance + Power workout is my SECOND favorite workout in the P90X2 workout program so far (right behind X2 Total Body). It’s an ultra challenging workout, but it incorporates lots of resistance training which I love.

The Basics Of X2 Balance + Power

The “X2 Balance + Power” workout is about 62 minutes long and as the name implies, it combines balance and strength to give you an insane workout. You’ll basically be doing resistance exercises that require balance AND have explosive movements.

So as you can imagine, there are some pretty hard exercises in this P90X2 workout. This is one of those workouts where there’s some exercises that you’ll have to pause your DVD, rewind, and watch a few times to get it down.
