X2 Total Body

X2 Total Body…DONE! As of the writing of this blog post I just finished day 3 of my first official round of P90X2! This has got to be my FAVORITE P90X2 workout so far since it incorporates all of my favorite moves- push ups, pull ups, and other resistance moves that incorporate weight.

In my “X2 Total Body” review post I’m going to share with you everything you could ever want to know about the P90X2 X2 Total Body workout. I’ll tell you how long it is, what equipment you need during X2 Total Body, and a listing of the moves. You’ll also get to hear my thoughts on X2 Total Body immediately after I finish the workout. Make sure to watch this video since I tell you a story of something that happened during X2 Total Body that could have ended up really, really bad…

Aight, here’s your X2 Total Body review!

The Basics Of X2 Total Body

The “P90X2 X2 Total Body” workout is about 63 minutes long, and as the name states, it’s a TOTAL body workout. It isn’t your standard old school total body resistance workout…it combines instability AND resistance to give you a killer workout. Standard moves like curls, tricep kickbacks, chest press, etc. are put on steroids by adding a stability ball, medicine ball, or by literally standing on one leg while doing the move.

The instability that’s thrown into these moves makes proper form not optional…but MANDATORY! Proper form is critical during the P90X2 X2 Total Body workout.

What Are My Thoughts On P90X2 X2 Total Body?

By the way…In the video above I was exhausted if you can’t tell! :-) I said “push up” a few times when I meant to say “pull up.” I’m sure you know what I meant to say!

 

[box type=”note”]IMPORTANT![/box]

Make sure NOT to discount the warning I gave you in the video as far as using too much weight. Even though I’m on a covert mission during P90X2 to bulk up and add size, I’m not going to worry to much about bulking up during this first phase of P90X2.

Learn from my little accident, and maintain proper form at ALL times!
