So, you’ve completed P90X2, finished all the P.A.P. workouts, and have persevered through the Impossible/Possible. This is where I currently stand, having just completed week 3 of the Performance Phase of P90X2.
P90X2 has been, by far, the most intense workout series I’ve done by Beach Body. P90X was tough, and Insanity was plain insane, but P90X2 took it to a whole new level. The Insanity workouts were tiring, and left me breathless many times, but the P90X2 workouts were physically exhausting. Even 3 weeks into the performance phase, my legs are still very sore and fatigued days after completing the P.A.P. Lower workout.
So what to do next, after you’ve finished P90X2? Well, I’m going to start a new workout hybrid with Insanity, just like I did with the original P90X. I’m going to begin with a strength phase , incorporating the original strength phase workouts, with some Insanity, and foundation phase workouts, as I’m already in decent shape from going through a full 90 day P90X2 rotation.
Modified Strength Phase I
Day 1: Chest + Back + Balance & X2 Ab Ripper
Day 2: Cardio Plyo
Day 3: X2 Core
Day 4: X2 Shoulders + Arms & X2 Ab Ripper
Day 5: Cardio Power & Resistance
Day 6: Base + Back & X2 Ab Ripper
Day 7: Rest
I plan on repeating this phase for four to six weeks. At which I’ll move on to another version of this phase, however I’ll be incorporating in the additional workouts from P90X2.
Modified Strength Phase II
Day 1: V Sculpt & X2 Ab Ripper
Day 2: Pure Cardio
Day 3: X2 Balance & Power
Day 4: Rest or X2 Balance & Power
Day 5: X2 Chest + Shoulders + Tris & X2 Ab Ripper
Day 6: Cardio Plyo
Day 7: Rest
As before, I’ll repeat this phase for approximately four to six weeks.
At this point, I’ll be another 90 days or so into the workout, at which point it will be time to switch up the workouts again. I’m thinking about incorporating some Asylum workouts into the mix as well, as it will be summertime, and I’ll be able to perform some of the workouts outside, such as the ladder workouts from Asylum.
